If you’ve been waiting for me to say something about the U.S. election, here it is: I don’t know what to say. I also don’t know what to do. In a time when unity and acceptance are more important than ever, I see angry people yelling at each other about doing ally-ship wrong. In a time when many are struggling to listen and help and be supportive, I am reading frustrated backlash over misguided, useless, or hollow actions. In a time when any gesture of solidarity should be welcomed, I’ve seen more vehement privilege call-outs than ever before. And as a deeply privileged person – white, cis, able-bodied, more – I feel completely frozen. Useless. Fully aware that those call-outs have merit and register important views, but also aware that my desire to do what’s most right and most helpful means that I cannot find any statement to make or action to take that someone somewhere hasn’t already deemed inadequate, insulting, or downright counterproductive. Maybe I’m reading the wrong websites or listening to the wrong radio stations, but I feel like much of the current post-election rhetoric is corrective instead of collaborative.
