Her: I don’t like Beyoncé
Me: oh yeh? Why not?
Her: because she bleaches her skin
Me: well she’s quite light skin to begin with
Me: and anyway there’s societal pressures for people with dark skin to lighten their skin
Me: it’s genuinely considered an attractive feature and something companies capitalise on
I will never get over the entitlement of white middle class women to not only assume they know what societal pressures for *women of colour* are like but ignore information when they are given it.
This is why your feminism is not my feminism and your liberation will never be my liberation.
