Are you being careful to avoid words like victim as not to appear right wing?The eagerness to police sits at odds with the liberatory lip-service. You can become part of the Class Whose Testimony Is Permitted, but that requires explicit (read: conventional) declaration of loyalty. The groups and thus expressions that are protected are those that are Recognized As Threatened, with an emphasis on the recognition part.
I can feel a shift , an adoption, speaking ‘as a’ as someone who was raised an irish catholic etc
These people are hurting, we have to amplify their voice. This requires appeasing the system (marketing their pain) and that involves simplifying then amplifying their distress for the greatest impact. But what might that leave out?
it's the inverse of the fame and desire hierarchy, the same sculpting and glossing over and concealment. How status position and audience forces us to hold parts of ourselves back and foreground others
but its obviously not the case that this adoption invalidates the experience. sometimes modelling and more confident portrayals are needed for others to step across the line, learn the ropes
