Normally, I would write a small paragraph explaining why you should read this absolutely great article! Well, I won't. I'll copy and paste an excerpt instead...
"Because we’re racist, sexist, bigoted, misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, transhysterical, anthropocentric, problematic, privileged, bullying, far right-wing, cishetero straight white males (and one white female who was demonstrating her internalized misogyny and overwhelming need for male approval) who wanted to enable bigotry, preserve our privilege, and take the side of hate?
No. None of those apply. Nevertheless, we’ll be accused of it, and we have some insights into why.
The article is huge but, after all, size matters (ooops, rejected).
