Well, obviously #NotAllWhiteMen, it must be said, because clearly there are some white men out there who don’t fall into spasms at the mention of #WhitePrivilege or the #EqualRightsAmendment, and they will very kindly retweet feminists and try very hard. So not THOSE white men. What I refer to are the White Men™ who are very, very masculine, thank you very much, and they never ever cry or behave irrationally by indicating that feelings matter in any sense, except where Outrage is concerned.
White Men™ are very smart and will always tell you so. They will provide thesis-length comments on your articles, which they have thoroughly researched at Wikipedia, filled with Facts of all kinds to show that White Men™ are NOT, in fact, responsible for anything wrong with this world because some other nonwhite person, somewhere, has probably done worse in the entirety of human history.
White Men™ do not understand why any woman or minority-type person would argue with their viewpoint, since it is clearly the correct one and has been for hundreds of years because many other White Male Historians have said so. Indeed, to argue with a White Man™ is clearly indicative of an inferior intellect, and this knowledge is based on nothing more than the empirical evidence of their own beliefs, which should be good enough for anyone.
White Men™ do not appreciate being told that they might be incorrect, or that they might be rude or racist or misogynist or any other “ist” that would imply that they are less than the Pinnacle of Humanity. And when they tell you so, it is because they are assertive, which a good man should be, and that is not at all like being bitchy or defensive. One must take care not to imply that their behavior is negative in any sense, or else you will trigger the One Valid Feeling that the White Man™ is allowed, which is Outrage.
“How DARE you,” is uttered so frequently by White Men™ that some have wondered if it is an attempt at a mating call for women who had toxic fathers and feel most at home with walking on eggshells around their mate for the entirety of their domestic life. I am not an anthropologist, but it is a real possibility.
White Men™ must always have the last word in a conversation, even if it is one that you did not ask for and that they inserted themselves into by writing very long diatribes that you are expected to read and, if you are smart like they are, be magically converted into their point of view. Any response that you make to any of these diatribes will be met with an opposite response that ratchets up the stakes accordingly, not because the White Man™ is trying to rationalize his viewpoint, but because he is Right. The only way out of a quagmire of this sort is to walk away and possibly block the White Man™ because he will battle you until his dying breath if given the opportunity.
It is a very sad thing for White Men™ that more women and darker people from continents not Europe will not give them the opportunity to wallop us over the head with their superior Logic and pundit-backed Facts, so that is why they have created safe spaces for themselves such as 4chan and Fox News web feeds to reassure themselves of their gender and racial superiority in the world. This feeling of societal discrimination that they carry on their shoulders like the boulder of Atlas (they have also read Ayn Rand) is a burden that they bear proudly, because everyone in their safe space agrees that they are much put upon and unappreciated, and that if they did not exist, the world would be Very Sorry and probably end up living as a collective in tune with Mother Nature or some other equally horrible circumstance.
If you find yourself moved by the plight of White Men™, I recommend giving them an occasional smile, patting them on the shoulder, and muttering “there, there” while you continue about your business of ignoring them. Because if you don’t ignore them, it only encourages them, and that would be enabling.
