u/dellitsni, with their #NotAllStraights and #AllLivesMatter garbage, needs people to get through to them

I don't have the time or energy to explain to them that reverse racism doesn't exist now on top of my attempts to point to how their other politics are dodgy, and that their vociferous defence of the privileged is nothing short of queerphobic and racist. There's only so many times I'm willing to point out their behaviour to them and introduce the directions they need to go to overcome them. They seem adamant that they will not imagine things beyond liberal individualised interpersonal relations.
re queerphobia, and completely missing the point and repeating the queerphobia in their apology
dellitsni, you don't get it, you need to go fix your shit.
There are few circumstances under which this wouldn't automatically result in a global ban; this seems to be one. Users invested in this user need to step up and do work with them right away.
Edit: Changed the title to reflect a a less threatening position after u/selver accurately pointed it out in the comments.
To ban them for this would be a huge overstep in response and in wielding your power.
"Reverse racism" or whatever the dumb shorthand is doesn't carry weight on Raddle, or really... exist, yeah. Its bullshit overall.
BUT, I still think insulting or judging someone for the way they are born is wrong regardless of any circumstance and will stand by them in both cases, even if calling it racism is a bit strong.
Whether its a cleft lip, a flat chest, dark skin, a big nose, light skin, who the fuck cares, it shouldn't be held against someone unless in the case of whiteness they abuse the privilege they would have. But in the case of the average Raddle user, generalizing and insulting an entire race should still be avoided for the above reason; not one based in race relations but one based on the fact that features out of an individuals' control should not be held against them.
