This is a blog where we call the world's youngest oppressors out on their privilege and explain why their blatant abuse of others is not okay at any age. Remember, intent is not magic! There is no excuse for the horrid behavior displayed by these bigoted youngsters.

Okay, so I know there’s been a lot of controversy over this picture in the mouse community, and I’ve decided to finally state my opinion on it. I don’t think the snake in this picture was wrong. Mammals always have privilege over reptiles, and my guess is that the mouse used a specieist slur which provoked the snake before they struck. Reptiles have the right to use violence against their oppressors. Even though the snake has more physical strength than the mouse, the snake does not have the political power that the mouse does. The mouse is still the oppressor in this situation, and I don’t think the snake can be blamed for lashing out.
