What I meant was : men / women is not the only unfair paradygm in our society, and it’s not of great use to just focus on that without dealing with the other parameters. We already had that discussion on another topic where we discuss how more often than not we choose one opposition and judge people by the side they’re on, rather than trying to find a hierarchy trough the criterias. Treating all men as guilty is not unfair, but it’s pretty baisc and lowlevel analysis as would be treating all white women as guilty or as it would be to treat all black uperclass person as guilty. I think, ok, we need to own the fact that we’re in the biggest oppressor cathegory, that much is a fact, but there are tons of men who do, and that is not enough. And the word “trash” is just really bad word to convey subtelties especially when adressing issues that concern 50% of the population.
Edit: I’ll just add that, according to what we can see of this world, this forum, with a vast majority of white, cis, european/american males should be considered litterally full of the utter trash of our society. And I think we do, most of us, feel like we have a responsability towards the state of this world. The question I think we need to ask is how do we built the structures that allow more of us to feel that way AND be empowered about it, because making thinkpiece asking for atonement is, in my opinion, not the best possible way.
