white women don’t seem to get that they’re no different than white men when it comes to their whiteness. suffering at the hands of patriarchy and sexism does not negate your white privilege nor your white entitlement.
the peculiar thing about gender as a marginalization is that you still grow up in a household with white men, you generally marry white men, and you still derive benefits and protection from their relatively higher class position than people of color (which includes men of color, you know). and you’re still white, anyway.
so many white women like to talk about white men being The Worst but you’re quite often riding their coattails and trying to be them all while not giving a fuck about women of color
