Why do white ladies do that thing where they interject a reaction to a potential criticism before they finish their thought? I'm always kinda uncomfortable about someone assuming I'm going to be rude, critical or dismissive before they even finish talking???

@seagazelle Reactionary defense mechanism left over from being subtly taught since birth that we must apologize for taking up space and also that our ideas or opinions or even actual experiences can and will be reinterpreted for us, usually by a white man.


@seagazelle The whole thing played out on the national stage last week; it doesn't matter what a woman experienced - excuse me, *thinks* she experienced - what matters is that the white man not be made uncomfortable by being held to the same standards as a mere woman.

Yeah, I'm still pretty PO'd about that.
