“white women get so hurt when non white women talk about european standards of beauty and realize that white women aren’t the epitome of beauty and then they go ‘wow so much for women supporting women’ like why should i support standards that made me feel ugly for the majority of my life? why should i care about you getting upset over some text post on a website when you have a bunch of magazines that validate you? if you really believed in women supporting women you’d understand why those posts are being made and the context behind them and you’d scroll past it without adding some unneeded comment about how your feelings are hurt, but it’s very obvious you throw that phrase around to make non-white women feel bad for making you feel uncomfortable and not because you support the meaning behind it.”
