Protip: when someone from an opressed group (e.g. POC, immigrants, women, etc) complain about something a privileged group tends to do (white, non-immigrants, cis men, etc), if you are from the privileged group, there's no need for you to comment assuring that you don't do these things. There's also no need to comment "lol yeah we're horrible aren't we" on a serious post about terrifying opression. It makes you seem defensive and like you're not taking opression seriously.

If you don't do those things? Congratulations! You don't get a medal, that's a bare minimum. If you do those things? Quietly improve and maybe boost the post that made you realise that you did wrong.

I know it doesn't seem like a big deal if you're privileged but it gets tiring when half the replies on a serious post about opression are joke replies by the privileged group.

@Some_Person thank you! I tried to express this a while back but did it a lot less eloquently
