Shit Straight White Guys Say

A collection of horrible things said by oppressive people with boatloads of privilege. Straightness, maleness and whiteness are the classic indicators, but there are many other privileges too, like cis privilege and wealthy privilege.

Excuse the sloppiness. I feel like people are more inclined to read things when they’re a picture, so I made this to give a really BRIEF and SHALLOW explanation of why “reverse sexism” is a bullshit way of describing what’s actually happening: patriarchy backfiring against men. There is a lot more to it than just this, though.

    There’s no such thing as reverse sexism because it can go both ways. If you read my last text post you can see. I work...
