Whenever you’re feeling down, just remember that Mulan was a real person.
Hua Mulan went to war at 15 years old and eventually led the army for almost a decade, leading countless attacks and winning victories for China.

The problem with the “not all ________” and “hate won’t end hate!1!” anti-social justice sentiments is that they attempt to bully minorities into silence by using the most galling form of false equivalence.
Most of us don’t hate individuals simply due to their privileged status. What we hate is the institutions that enable an increasingly smaller section of the population to monopolize basic human rights and then label us as radical and irrational for begging for crumbs.
You’ll likely never see a queer person bullying a straight person or a poc denying a white person housing or health care or trans people murdering cis people. The claim that actively criticizing majorities will produce some bizarro world society where majorities face the same violence and oppression that minorities have faced historically is beyond laughable and frankly insulting.
Taking personal offense to everything and turning it into a circle jerk about feelings and ~fairness only highlights the fact that you’re desperate to deflect onto anything as long as you don’t have to listen to our experiences.
If you were really anti-hate, you’d want to listen to us and help us fix what’s broken in our society.
