Exactly! It really annoys me when people, nearly always disingenuously, try this argument (i.e. ‘women can be sexist too’). ‘Power’ (cultural, economic etc…) is absolutely key…
One of my ex-friend W.’s favorite arguments, he would repeat it over and over as if repetition made it true. I know he’s stalking my blog, so hopefully he can educate himself while doing so.
Can’t be said too often. Phrasing I use often is “it is impossible, by definition, for members of an oppressed group to act from a position of privilege towards members of the oppressing group.” Claims of reverse sexism and reverse racism are attempts to promote false equivalences and erase the lived experience of being a member of an oppressed group.
