the reason oppressed groups say “___ are awful” instead of “some ___ are awful” is because including the word “some” allows individuals of that group to detach themselves from the problem and shuck the blame off and say “well they arent really talking about me so i can ignore their opinions”, whereas stating that an entire group of oppressors is awful makes the individual think whether or not theyre included in the awfulness of that group and makes them consider their actions so thats why people say “men are awful” or “white people are awful” and if you take it personally you’re getting angry at the wrong people
#if you take it personally you’re probably part of the problem
I’m going to call bull-shit on this immediately because anyone in an oppressed group should know that generalizations and stereotypes have immense potential to be harmful and don’t actually solve problems. It sounds a lot like the writer of this post doesn’t want to acknowledge that it works both ways, and is instead trying to justify their bullshit in a really lazy way.
