i hate the whole oppression works both way thing because like
if you go up to your boss and say “YOURE A FUCKING ASSHOLE. YOURE FIRED!!” nothing happens to your boss because you’re not in a position to do anything to her like that. if she goes “NO, YOURE FIRED.” then you’re out on your ass and unemployed. you both said the same thing, but its effects were COMPLETELY different, because of the POSITIONS OF POWER.
This year we had an exchange student from Palestine. The first day he was here, the fighter pilots at the Air Force base in our city did a practice flight.
He hid under the desk and was confused when we didn’t react, and just looked at him funny. “Why are you doing that?” We asked him. “Why aren’t you?” He replied. He explained to us why he did that, and in the middle of history class, we learned about the crisis in Palestine.
