"I know I'm speaking in abstractions, and that there's privilege embedded in my ability to do so,"
This is pontificating.
And this Thanos approach to changing things, we have to destroy something in order to savage it. This is just plain bad thinking. Learning to hate yourself is not a winning way of living. Spending all of your time navel gazing into the realm of unconscious bias is a fools errand. Recognizing injustice and not participating in that injustice is a useful step that people can do. Self loathing is not a solution.
You are nothing if not a man of principle. However much it grinds your gears, the quote above is worlds away from a clarion call to self-loathing for whining, straight, white males. Reads to me like it's meant as humility before World Problems.
How much needless hate and loathing has been justified by saying "That's just the way it is?"
Whether you're trying to hear it or not, what this pampered rich bitch and UN goodwill ambassador is saying is it doesn't have to be.
Say what you will about the shrillness of her voice, she ain't wrong.
The closest I can find to the hatemongering you've put her down for is saying that myths like the pontification found elsewhere in this thread must be challenged. Eventually, even destroyed. Unless you think people are the myths they believe, that's not even about people.
It's sure as fuck not about making whiny, straight, white males loathe themselves. Unless you mean they, somehow, are the myths they believe too.
I'm a Hathahater. I can't help myself.
Can't stand her on screen. Nails on a chalkboard. And Thanos is high. Once he got the Reality Stone, he could've erased scarcity itself instead of half of everyone. Problem solved.
Erasing scarcity. Is that not what the outrage is about? I am in wonder at diversity. Erasing half starts a new diversity.
