White guy feels bad: news at 11
You have a question. It comes up a lot.
Can a nontrans, white gay man ever truly leave the comforts of his own identity without having to make frequent and loud apologies for the crimes of his ilk?
Tim Wise, who happens to be a white man so you can totally listen to him, bro, has an answer:
You shouldn’t feel guilty. You should feel angry.
But in order to live an ethical life, to live ethically and responsibly, I have to take some responsibility for the unearned advantage, which means working to change the society that bestows that advantage. It’s not guilt, but it is responsibility.
I hope this answers your question.
