something i think is really hard for a lot of allies to deal w/ is that
the actual oppressed groups’ voices matter more than yours all the time but this ALSO INCLUDES moments where you’re explaining something about, say, western sexual imperialism of east asian women, and an actual east asian woman interrupts you and tells you that she doesn’t think there’s any hypersexualization of asian women’s bodies and feels equal to white women, YOU STOP TALKING.
YES there are literally dozens of papers, articles, movies, etc etc etc talking about this but the fact that you have access to that amount of information and are entrenched enough in academia to have read it and understood it is a privilege that is important to be conscious of. YES it might make you feel stupid or like you’ve “lost” or something, but speaking over her voice in a group setting especially just perpetuates Oppressor-speaking-over-Oppressed which we have enough of. Oppressed voices ALWAYS come first.
