If you read this article, and the only response you have is:
“Stupid Slant Eyes”
and are called out on your shit, and all you have to say is:
“OK, I am not a racist…”, and proceed to defend your racist and misogynistic bullshit, while failing 100% to see how you are, in fact a racist and misogynistic ass hole, then I can not help you.
The linked article is awful. That poor father. I can not express enough how I ache for him. I would be beside myself if that happened to me. Is that a shitty situation? Yes. Do I think that something needs to be done to fix this? Absolutely! And as soon as we can make that shit happen.
Is throwing around gendered slurs and othering an entire race of people, or using hateful and bigoted language against a specific nationality going to fix a damned thing? Nope. Not going to happen. In fact, it’s probably also not going to help matters, whatsoever. In an international situation insulting the other person is probably not the way to go.
I’m just sayin’.
But, hey, keep it classy.
Oh, also, shit like that will get you “unfriended”. Especially if you can’t even have the courage to own your bigotry.
But don’t worry. You won’t be lonely.
