How To Be An Ally & Not An Asshole

AllyShip

(1) Acknowledging your privilege DOES NOT make you an ally

(2) Shut up & listen

(3) Its not about you!

(4) Ride &/or Die!

(5) They don’t need your pity & you aren’t super-save’em-hoe *side eye*

(6) Google it, check out a library, read the millions of blog posts on the topic!

(7) The ONLY time the privileged get to be on the front lines is if somebody is shooting

(8) Privileged people DO NOT get to decide what’s oppressive

(9) Be CONSCIOUS of your language!!!!!!!!!!!! Watch your damn mouth!!!
