In reference to my criticism of Badtux's post, Badtux asks, "[H]ow many times has Hillary Clinton been pulled over by the cops over the past ten years for Driving While Being A White Woman?"
I have some questions in return, meant in the same general spirit as I assume Badtux's question was asked.
How many times has Obama (or men like him) had to choose between abstinence, an unwanted pregnancy or a back-alley abortion?
How many times has Obama been raped?
How many times has Obama been forced to go to a shelter because his wife was beating him?
How many times has Obama been told to fuck his boss or lose his job?
Black men got the vote in 1870. Women got the vote in 1920.
I don't want to trivialize racism. It's real, it's bad. And what progress we've made has been because black people didn't STFU and suck it up. Don't trivialize sexism; don't tell the women to STFU and suck it up.
