Hugh Mungus vs Brahmin feminist

So I shared this privately, mostly, last year. I find her tone* triggering as fuck so I never did get more timestamps. I never shared it with one of the people I credited, who today was giving her praise and publicity. Someone who basically doesn’t ask herself why, in her view, only a Brahmin should be on her shortlist of activists for media exposure.

Instead of making a post, I hit search and found this whole other incident.

Maybe I need more context before I say so. However, I’m still triggered by Joshi’s tone, almost a year later, and it does seem to be that. It is ironic to have people like her allegedly condemning what they actively promote and partake in, what protects them in the Hindustan they are so fond of. Do they ever criticise the Indian police or sexual violence on the most vulnerable women?

‘Women’ bc there has always been a movement of Adivasi, Adi and bahujan women alongside queer and trans folks of these castes or castelessness, Muslims, Buddhists, religious minorities, Kashmiris.

*To the new reader or someone who doesn’t read the linked content: the Brahminical tone is triggering af for those of us who have regularly been oppressed by them.

Empathy

I want to care but I don’t anymore (pathologically) but I want to care and it’s all that matters, being willing to try my best to care and to act respectfully; so I love the way this post is worded, I don’t know if it was intentional from Khai’s part. I have responsibility and I ask myself to honour it daily as I ask people to honour theirs. The personal is political but I think it’s a 2-way influence in the current systems in which we live. True social change is likely to happen if we do away with legislation completely and change people and minds, but in the meantime we also have to demand that the legislations imposed upon us meet every person’s needs and not vice versa.
