“I would argue that maleness and whiteness are commodities in decline. And while those of us who are not male or white have enjoyed some benefits from their decline, the sort of violence and murder that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary will continue to occur if we do not find a way to carry them along with us in our successes rather than leaving them behind.”:
I can’t believe this is like a real thing that is in The New York Times. Another quote:
From the civil rights and feminist movements of the 1960s and onward, young men – and young white men in particular – have increasingly been asked to yield what they’d believed was securely theirs. This underlying fact, compounded by the backdrop of violent entertainment and easy access to weapons, creates the conditions for thousands of young men to consider their future prospects and decide they would rather destroy than create. Can you imagine being in the shoes of the one who feels his power slipping away? Who can find nothing stable to believe in? Who feels himself becoming unnecessary?
I mean holy shit.
Holy shit, seconded. This is abhorrent and appalling.
im going to shit into my own hand
Can you imagine being in the shoes of the one who feels his power slipping away?
– i think the NYT has made its leanings clear on many occasions, and this is about as clear as they’ve ever gotten.
fuck all of this dumb white bullshit
Who gives a fuck how they feel about their precious power slipping away?!
