The Mask’s mask was wood and Norse. This is serpentine and Teotihuacano.

What’s funny to me is that it’s an almost exact opposite of reality.

In reality, people who routinely face hardship tend to be significantly more resilient; if for no other reason than sheer necessity. To the actually oppressed microaggressions aren’t on the same level as hate crimes - they’re not even noticed. There is a reason why you don’t hear people saying “my boss forced us to work overtime off the clock and threatened to have us deported if we complained but what really gets me is that some dude told me to smile the other day on the bus” or “the police beat me to a bloody pulp while screaming ‘stop resisting’, but instead let’s talk about how fucked up it is that Assassin’s Creed IV isn’t going to allow character customization wtf EA?!” These statements would be ridiculous; if one were to make either of them then a rational person would likely assume the first part of the sentence is a lie.

Conversely, people who have never faced actual hardship tend to be a bit over sensitive to minor inconveniences, if only because they have no frame of reference with which to compare them to. These are people whose biggest problems to date have been “sometimes people disagree with my opinions even though I’m certain that my opinions are objectively correct”, and everything kind of gets re-balanced on that scale. To them, failing to acknowledge that they’re totally a trans-racial agendered biromantic demiboy who just happens to look like a middle class white girl is in fact oppression. It’s roughly equal to the greatest hardships they’ve faced, and they simply don’t realize that precious few people are fortunate to live such care-free lives.

I think the moral here is that allowing the least vulnerable, most privileged people in our society the right to impersonate, speak on the behalf of, and often silence actually oppressed people is a really, really bad thing. Sadly, I don’t see anything changing in the immediate future. So many of them are so convinced that they’re doing good and anyone who disagrees is evil, and such a mindset doesn’t change easily.
