I know that I have a personal trigger with ironic racism
I lived with a white roommate for 4-5 years
who was a really big fan of ironic racism
in fact, ‘those yellow, slanty eyed bastards’ was something I heard on a fairly regular basis.
of course, at the time I just laughed along with it, relatively certain that it was ‘just a joke’
(he was also massively transmisogynist)
and, was it any wonder that during the time we lived together my self-esteem went down the shit hole and this is when i stopped expressing my gender and essentially stuffed myself into a closet i had never been in?
zero patience for that shit
he also taught me that when someone outright says “i’m racist!” that even if they have a joking tone
you believe them and run the fuck away
