Heya Foxgloves! Just a quiet note of appreciation for how you stayed focused despite an attempt to derail. Seeing trolls sucker people into arguments is a frustration of mine and I had to say 'well done.'Foxgloves wrote:Don't "All Lives Matter" at feminists. We're not here to save everybody. We're here to liberate women.
The following two cents is only offered because I want to help keep your message as strong as possible. Not trying to derail and I'm quite aware of the irony of pointing this out in light of my opening comment.
This confused me because people do troll Black Lives Matter supporters exactly this way, which is why you were able to effectively reference "All Lives Matter" at the start.Foxgloves wrote:But women are the only movement who are not allowed to center themselves, no, we have to take care of everybody else, too. You would never say this to a Black-Lives-Matter person. Don't say this to women either.
Trolls move goalposts on their targets all the time because it's an easy fallacious argument.
Don't get me wrong - people shouldn't say such things, but as they do so claiming that women are the only movement not allowed to center themselves weakens your overall message ( at least to me, YMMV ).
Have a great day!
