This. “the common white socialist trope of insisting the only class that matters is economic class”

Where’s that meme for “Cis People Talking About Gender?” It’s… a lot of that, but delivered with paternal authoritarianism. And the undercurrent here is that we solve it by simply forgetting gender, which I might be reading too in a little…
…but the result reminds me of the common white socialist trope of insisting the only class that matters is economic class, everything else is a distraction, racism was invented to divide us so talking about it is falling for it, and solving class inequality fixes everything.
