Comparing "SWM" with the N-word is outrageously tone-deaf, inane, and wildly false. I don't care how "persecuted" by "racism" you feel as a white dude, if you think use of the term is equivalent to a slur arising from centuries of SLAVERY AND SEGREGATION, you're crazy.

I’m suspicious of any women who has more straight white male fans than any other demographic. I don’t mind SWM 1-1 or in small groups, but as a community they really have sustained a set of ideals that allows for widespread abuse oppression & exclusion of everyone who isn’t them.
