anyone else ever feel deeply ashamed about their perceived lack of praxis?

self-doubt rambling 

how can I, someone who has unequivocally benefited from white hetero-patriarchal power structures, ethically justify devoting my time and energy to anything other than the destruction of those power structures? Like I wanna go to grad school but I only have that option because of the aforementioned benefits (which come at the expense of marginalized communities) Is there any justification for enriching myself off the back of that exploitation even if I'm not doing it directly?

@chaoticgoodboy No ethical consumption under capitalism goes hand-in-hand with no ethical advancement under capitalism imo.

@chaoticgoodboy understanding the flaws in our system also means understanding that turning down opportunities probably won't actually contribute to fixing the system, or even giving a marginalized person a chance

@EndlessWario @chaoticgoodboy i think this is the most practical advice you're going to get on this. advancing yourself *can* give you the opportunity to advocate better. men listen to men, white people listen to white people.
