I don’t believe:
- All women simply because they’re women nor will I vote for a woman merely because she’s a woman. Why does that make me sexist?
- Skin pigmentation makes all white people oppressors or all people of color oppressed. Why does that make me racist?
- All Muslims want peaceful coexistence. Why does that make me an Islamophobe?
- All corporations are evil. Why does that make me a corporatist?
- All rich people stole or inherited their wealth, nor do I believe that all poor people were exploited. Why does that make me an elitist?
Why does treating people as individuals rather than as if they are nothing more than cookie-cutter representatives of some socio-economic group make me an “-ist” or a “-phobe?”Published in
