Wow. Looking at the twitter conversations she's been in lately, it is hell to be a woman participating in social media. Anonymity brings out the worst in many... especially "some men".

Just like with f*cking pigs - until the "good ones" start helping to do something about the "bad ones", they need to be lumped right the f*ck in with 'em.

"Might makes right" isn't really a good goal to chase. Also, what happens if the bastard in question is bigger than you?

Eventually, someone will realise that demonising moderates is just pushing them away.

I mean, it hasn't stopped anyone yet, why should anyone gather allies with a unified call to arms when you can get page views by pitting interest groups against each other, or convince one minority group that it can overcome all by itself, for itself.

Listen, I've been hanging around in dark alleys in my pajamas trying to stop rapists, like any reasonable upstanding super hero, but the local cops told me to stop before I get myself killed.

But more seriously, this is like when people blamed even the good Muslims for not reigning in all the terrorist Muslims. It's just a thin veil so you can continue painting blame with your huge paint brush.

Ok I am guessing this was a series of motivating or enlightening words or something but I was let with my head scratching by the end of it.

Are you suggesting moderates do things and are capable of being allies?

Forums have moderators, and they generally deal with the ~1% of users that are only there to be assholes. Social media doesn't. This one fact can explain a lot about the quality of online discourse and how much it has dropped in the last decade-ish.

They make these wonderful little force multipliers called "weapons" now.  There's also the new toys "cheap shots", "sneak attacks" and "blind rage".  These will do.

Between the pace, the cryptic phrasing, and the indecipherable accent, I have absolutely no idea what she's trying to say. But based on the text, I'm guessing she's angrily generalizing.

The analogy there is the hope that the good ones can stop the bad ones. The good Muslims can report the radical crazy guy at the mosque and the good men can report a rapist friend to the police(or stop him first). But it's never that simple. The smart terrorists keep it on the DL until they know they're in the company of kindred spirits and I for example, for some reason, don't seem to make friends with rape-y dudes like Brock Turner or Brett Kavanaugh.

I'm not saying I don't care. Only that I have zero idea how to help other than be conscious about my own behavior. I generally leave women alone and not look at them, which has become more instinctual during the pandemic. Nope, you're just another covid vector, I'm going this way. Oh look, a tree.

Funny, I was thinking that it's a  important statement which only lost a bit of gravitas by being made into a speedy breathless poem.
Now if it has to ryme, I could see it being a snarling, pissed off rap. That would probably catch more ppls attention nowadays.

What was your stance on people telling Muslims they had to clean up their own community during the war on terror (tm) if they wanted to be treated with respect and equality?

...and for the record, I'm not saying she's doing anything wrong, or that I could do better. Just think that poetry outside of music doesn't reach people as much as it used to.

It reminded me a bit of John Cooper Clarke's rhythm and cadence, like that in "Some C*nt Used the N-Word", but, yeah GSH may be even closer.

This is an important thing for all people who enjoy privileges to hear.

Because all of us at one point have bristled and thought

"Not all men," or
"Not all white people," or
"Not all Boomers," or
"Not all cisgender people," or
"Not all straight people,"

but all that does is frame their struggles to be about us, when it's about them, and they don't have the luxury of approaching one of us and somehow being able to quickly figure out if we're One of the Good Ones™.

And it's kind of like gun ownership--everyone's a responsible gun owner until the moment they're not. Every woman has known a man who was fine, until he wasn't. Every Black person has had a white friend who suddenly and abruptly disappointed and hurt them by doing or saying something racist.

So for women who literally fear for their lives being around men, there is no Bad Men and Good Men. There are just Bad Men and Men Who Haven't Been Bad Yet.

It can take a long time to establish trust with someone who holds social privilege above us, because of how often we've been burned by people in their class before.

And again, this can be life or death. Very, very literally.

I couldn't really understand her, but I got the impression that her message was that all men are bad for not stopping other men from asking her to shake her ass or something.

But then this was the very next video, so I feel like maybe all women aren't on board with her message either.

You should watch it with subtitles, because that is definitely not what her message was.

It's interesting how many didn't understand the text, but feel qualified to comment just based on how her delivery made them feel.

They might defend themselves against her with a statement beginning, "Not all men..."

Correct. Therefore, nobody should trust anybody, and everyone should assume that every person they ever meet simply hasn't been a Bad Person *yet*.

Being a species composed entirely of untrusting misanthropes is the only way to be sure.
