Internet controversy 101 (Privilege Panic):
1) Get upset at a comment because you are looking to be upset about something, and see your most feared boogeyman everywhere, regardless of the other ways it could be taken or how many other people are actually upset
2) Recruit others to share in your narcissistic injury
3) When a percentage of people you go up against decide to take exception to your special pleading and an even smaller minority post “racist” comments back to you, you use this to confirm your paranoid worldview and your delusional mind believes you won this round of an imaginary war that never ends, with you as the central hero[ine].
4) Continue to live the “privileged” life of an Asian American who’s really just an American who grew up here and has the luxury to of expecting to get an ideologically sympathetic media and academic institution establishment on her side.
5) Exactly nothing changes.
Now, with all that in mind, let us enjoy something this well-adjusted young women wrote here:
It’s time to come clean about something. For anyone who knows me personally, I have been very stressed as of late. I have finally made a very hard decision.
I had been appointed a secret agent for White People Affairs (WPA), a surveillance agency created to keep an eye out on white folks. At WPA we understand that white people have a history of committing unimaginable violence. In my position, I have lived among them and worked among them. I have successfully infiltrated the most dangerously white places in order to better study white pathology. It was so anxiety-provoking…never knowing when white people would snap and show their true nature. Never knowing when I might be discovered. I am relieved to say I have retired from my position, as it was physically and emotionally unhealthy. I couldn’t look too obvious when taking notes, so my findings may look strange to you.
They won’t break me yet! I will not be discovered and tortured again!
I will be leaking top secret notes throughout the coming weeks
What a piece of work. She has a chip on her shoulder large enough to be an extra continent, and I am immensely relieved to say that the vast majority of people who look like her are infinitely stronger and more self-aware than she could ever hope to be. She’s precisely the type of person given to reveling in this histrionic, very public display of personal psychodrama. She requires the world to exorcise her personal failings, which I am equally relieved to say will never happen.
