Privileged people preaching nonviolence to oppressed people
i kinda said this in different words to my parents and they were appalled and confused.
I’m sorry that your parents didn’t get it. I know how tough that is, when someone you really care about isn’t willing to put in the mental effort to understand an issue that matters to you.
they’re baby boomers, and their actions are ‘good’ (read as humanitarian) enough, so even though they are quite prejudiced in ways it’s not worth arguing with a brick wall. they’re almost 60, as long as they aren’t harming anyone or saying terrible things their convictions are effectively swept under the rug.
i could go on and on for days about how internet generations (i use the term neohuman/ity for brevity, though it sounds kinda sci-fi’ish) are different creatures than the ones who were alive and kicking beforehand. not to say some have adapted/evolved on the fly, but not most tbph.
