This place is hostile for some people in marginalized groups because of sexist, racist, or other attitudes
because this place is "safe" for white, straight, born-with-a-penis males
Basically I'm adjusting the standards of discrimination to account for white male privilege
"Positive discrimination" is a farce (social discrimination by definition is the unfair
treatment of a group of people based on prejudice
, there is nothing positive about it). You're not adjusting any standards of discrimination here, all that you are doing is spouting prejudice in retaliation to what you feel is prejudice and then telling everyone how wrong prejudice is.EDIT:
Anyways, this is where I step away from the argument. It's not going anywhere. You believe what you want to believe. If it makes your day to generalize people and assume the worst of them then be my guest.
And for Cow that keeps flaunting that I do not know how is to be a minority and really discriminated, I must say that I've been on several ends of that (including being robbed by black people for being white, and being ostracized by white people for having black facial features).
I got a scar that stretches from the corner of my mouth to the corner of my nose from getting jumped by a dozen guys and stabbed in the face for being white (well, off-white), and my cousin got stabbed in the ribs and gut. If you're white in this part of town and it's after sunset you're a prime target for the gangs here (I guess that's just a hazard of being under-privileged and marginalized
). It doesn't matter what color your skin is or what your gender is someone will hate you for it (my best friend who is black got jumped by a Samoan gang and got a brick to the back of the head for being black). That is just the sad state of our society.
