Just because you experience some sort of oppression doesn’t give you the right to talk about others’
A “hot take” brought to you by my current read but it’s actually a thing I’ve seen a lot and this isn’t specifically about this book. It just inspired me to finally write the post-
I’m reading a cute romance YA where one of the main characters is latino, as far as I’ve been able to research the author is not. This isn’t an issue on itself, I love that more people are including latinx characters in their stories and making us more visible and all that. The problem comes when such people take it upon themselves to discuss intra-community issues as if they understand shit.
