Now, I have no problem with you pointing people out on their shit. But I just want to remind y’all that celebrities are also humans, and it is in human nature to make mistakes. So why point them out only? Why not point everyone out? It’s like treating them as if they are not human. You’re almost…
I respect that you care about these things, but posting things online and speaking up only when it poses no danger to you is the very definition of an armchair warrior.

Now, you would be like a journalist writing an op-ed in a liberal newspaper telling people why they can’t say the n-word. What you’re doing informs people. But it is not active, not true fighting for what’s right because you have nothing to lose.
Telling a room full of people who won’t threaten you or hurt you or cause you anything but annoyance and minor inconvenience is definitely armchair activism. It’s safe, easy, and ultimately changes nothing.
I do like your blog tho.
