I can kinda guess what you're talking about but not really.
Same. I think the initials are W.P.
He kept it vague enough that it could technically fit anywhere, especially if you read what people say in comments sections of articles related to
I'm tired of being told I'm capable of rape, all because I'm a man.
I'm half hispanic/white and my skin shows it, so I can't claim W.P., but I can partially understand. Growing up where I did, I became very tired of
hearing the things people assumed about me because I'm brown. I had an old boss tell a waitress that her tips were low, because it would be typical
for me to steal them since I'm brown. I've also had hispanics tell me how I should act, and what I should like, all because I'm brown.
I'm also tired of being told I don't understand racism when I was brown in a small racist town, all because I don't agree with many of the things BLM
I'm also tired of black people hating on white people who are trying to understand their plight, all because they're white. I've seen this in too
many threads/comments sections and it disgusts me. I'd rather have an ally who at least tries to understand, than push away anyone who could be an
ally, or better yet, a friend.
I'm also tired of women who yell at men for trying to help them with their self esteem issues. An example would be like if a woman was being self
conscious because she has a bit more body hair than normal. If a guy tries to help her feel better by saying something like "You shouldn't be upset
about that, there are guys that like that, myself included.", they're immediately yelled at by countless women "Nobody cares about your boner!!!".
It's like a guy isn't supposed to help them feel better about themselves.
This one really gets me, because I'm also french/spanish, so I'm a somewhat hairy guy. Growing up I had lots of self esteem issues about it, because
I've heard countless girls in my school talk about how body hair is disgusting. One of the things that really helped me get over that was women.
I've been told by countless women that they like body hair, and other women out there like it too. Being told that helped me gain confidence about
myself. I actually appreciated being told that, because it did help. If I went by their reactions today, I should've just gotten mad and yelled
"Nobody cares about your moisture!!!"
In the end, I think I'm just tired of PC nonsense. There were a lot of things I felt needed to change in our world, and they're changing. But it
seems many have gone to the other extreme, and it's extremely frustrating.
