I’ve been waiting for someone to make this a gif
damn near 30 years ago and still relevant
Can someone show me a similarly frank conversation about rape culture in any of your progressive faves….
I think it’s super interesting this convo is happening between two men of colour BECAUSE they’re so much more likely to be accused of or picked up during or seen as rapists because of the historical necessities of white supremacy.
Like would a conversation like this happen between two white men of the same era, or now, did it, has it would it?
I don’t understand why people keep saying “said so long ago and still relevant” of course it is
People are being born everyday, they need to be taught by the older what is right and what is wrong. This is an ongoing thing that has to happen. THERE WILL BE NO END.
"Uh dad I have feelings and I want her to do it too. Should I force her?"
"No son, that’s wrong"
"Oh ok, thanks dad"
"Mom I want to do things but am I ready?"
"No daughter, wait for that special time when you’re not worried, you’re secure in your decision"
"Oh ok, thanks mom"
That daughter/son will be parent and repeat these words to their kid and so on and so forth because each new child does not come into this world knowing these things and we shouldn’t EXPECT ANYONE else to teach them before we do.
LIFE IS A LESSON.
Be a teacher and a student
And learn to take responsibility as both
