Voices of majority privilege viciously dehumanize minorities; sound familiar, history?

by Jeremy Hooper

It's getting really vicious:

There are not normal things to say. These are the kinds of dangerous comments that proceed history's ScaryTime Awful Hours.

On one hand, I "love" comments like these because they hurt Pete and Matt's own movement (something that people within their own movement have admitted to me). But at the same time, actual human people—and especially young people—still have to come up in a world where this mindset can and does influence others. Politically, I celebrate Pete and Matt's tacit acknowledgement that we have won and therefore they must resort to outright nastiness; personally, I lie awake at night worrying about the scared kids who must endure more and worse before reaching their personal "betters."
