Allan G. Johnson (via wretchedoftheearth)
"Too often men react to women’s anger by calling on women to take care of them, and in this way recreate the male-centered principle of the very gender order that women…are angry about."
This is also true in other instances, just replace “men” with any oppressive group and “women” with any oppressed group. If you’re in a position of privilege in a situation, then do not make the other person’s anger all about your hurt feelings. You are just reproducing the oppression that led to that anger.
