the amount of white people who stumble into stranger's conversations online going like "Actually you're wrong. But i know nothing about this situation and have done exactly zero research and also i don't know who i'm replying to" hurts my brain
"You're wrong, actually. What are we talking about?"
it's even worse when the people previously talking are like, professionally or acutely skilled and knowledgeable in the fields being discussed. like programmers or whatnot.
@heyheather it happens /so/ often i wouldve thought that people would be like...self-conscious of it or something but nope
that's unsurprising and also so, so exhausting...
@packbat so exhausting omg
@SuperCee "Everyone's entitled to their opinion, and I have free speech, so I have to have and share my opinion on everything!"
