Description de l’éditeur
My name's Rob, and I’d always been a liberal. I attended rallies against police brutality, supported the fight against climate change, campaigned hard for Bernie. Well, those days are gone. Today I’m a hardened cynic. I’ve witnessed firsthand how racial and gender politics can be used as weapons to close white guys like me out of conversations, humiliate us, render us powerless and lessen our worth.
They say words can never harm you but the way I was treated that night back in November mentally neutered me. The words that were spoken to me, the way I was taken down verbally, it was brutal. First the black men ‘took offence’ at my innocent comments, and then the girls did the same. Jeez man, words can’t adequately describe the humiliation I felt. I now realize that for some people, voicing support for principles is a charade, designed to empower them and socially cripple their victims. Becky, my ex, is a prime example.
