Call things what they are. By using the language of your oppressors, you are being complicit in your own oppression. Do not normalize this. This is not normal, and we sure as fuck shouldn’t sanitize it.
I’m not a professional historian, but my teacher had a special interest in WWII and what led up to it. And this? This is exactly how the Nazi regime started. They normalized it, edged a bit further, that got normalized too, and by the time major shit was going down, it was too fucking late.
We need to make sure it’s not too fucking late this time. “Never again” needs to mean something.
