Rant of the day! Is helping people becoming bad?

There's this weird phenomenon going on that I just don't completely get. People are getting upset because people who are not trans*/gay/ any other oppressed people are supporting oppressed people. I understand that not all publicity is good publicity but with every person who tries to stand with them there are people being angry about it. WHAT?? WHY???

THE PEOPLE YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE MINDS OF ARE NOT A PART OF YOUR COMMUNITY! or you wouldn't have to change their minds! The oppressors need to see that what they are doing is wrong and people like them can persuade them more easily! Movements need support of others! Let others help you and it wouldn't be as much of a struggle. Not all "support" is good but many people have good intentions and truly want to help you so work with them and let them help!

You attract more flies with honey than vinegar and be nice to those who are doing you no harm. Also many "supporters" need to know what is helpful and harmful to speak about. You may be doing more harm than good if you meant it that way or not! Be mindful and educated!

ok end rant but I'm sure this will come up again...
