It seems that if your oppression is also done to a man, you are more likely to be recognized as oppressed, as opposed to inferior. Once a group is seen as putatively human, a process helped by including men in it, an oppressed man falls from a human standard. A woman is just a woman—the ontological victim—so not victimized at all.

Unlike other women, the white woman who is not poor or working class or lesbian or Jewish or disabled or old or young does not share her oppression with any man. That does not make her condition any more definitive of the meaning of “women” than the condition of any other woman is. But trivializing her oppression, because it is not even potentially racist or class-biased or heterosexist or anti-Semitic, does define the meaning of being “anti-woman” with a special clarity. How the white woman is imagined and constructed and treated becomes a particularly sensitive indicator of the degree to which women, as such, are despised.

Bulgakov

literarystarbucks:

Mikhail Bulgakov goes up to the counter and tells the barista that his name is “Woland.”  He sits, giggles to himself, & reads the paper.  His giggles turn to a frown as he is confronted by the bureaucratic nightmare that is the 21st century.
When his order is called, a man cuts in front of him, takes his drink, and leaves.  He is followed by a large black cat. Bulgakov is frightened; he decides to use his own name next time.
