If I'm proud of what I am, that's a problem for many people...

    If I'm proud to be a man, that makes me a misogynist.

    If I'm proud to be white, that makes me a racist.

    If I'm proud to be straight, that makes me a homophobe.

    And even if I don't have pride in being a straight white man, I am privileged.

    The classic no-win situation for me.

    As a peaceful person, I've never had a good answer to "what author, living or dead, would you like to fight?" until I heard the Bret Easton Ellis interview in which he went on and on about how the Me Too movement had gone too far, citing the feelings of a lot of men he knows.

    good enough?

    What interests me is the leftist's attitude that straight white men can just eat shit and die for all they care.

    Who says you can’t be proud ? Be proud.

    But when you are tearing down others, that’s not pride . That’s hatred .

    Being male is being a gender. Not something you achieved so why are you proud?

    Being white is being a race. Not something you achieved so why are you proud?

    Being straight is your sexual orientation. Again not an achievement.

    You just named three things you're proud of that are in no way something you earned or achieved. Here's a tip. Don't want to be labeled as something. Don't say things that deserve that label.
