-Isms should be uncomfortable. Labeling something as a 'bias' or prejudice does not make it less #racist, #sexist, #homophobic, #ageist, #ableist, etc. Recognizing your own racism, sexism, homophobia - your own -ism, is the first step to fighting it

Sugar-coating these words to make them more comfortable to work with does us no favors.

Back story:

During the Ignite pre-day I was very open about recognizing my own bias, specifically my own racism. I understand that it exists & I actively work against that conditioning. 2/
It is conditioning. And exists in most of us. I was just willing to admit to it in an open forum. It's sad that instead of asking how we can all get to a place where we are admitting to & working against our own isms, people get hung up on the admission & label me "a racist" 3/

And yes, you can be a woman and a misogynist. Let me break it down for you: if you say she's a puppet, or being manipulated, then you believe she's somehow weak. If you're a man, particularly in a position of "Conservative" or Republican power, (2/n)
