Please Help, I Suffer from Aphasia and I Cannot Remember Words from Time to Time.

I cannot explain what I am trying to say. The word escapes me, whenever I think I remember how it sounds, poof it’s gone in an instant. Maybe this will help.

I’ve included a few examples, hopefully this will help you understand what I’m trying to say…

Anti-Black = Racist

Anti-Asian = Racist

Anti-Hispanic = Racist

Ant-Gay = Homophobe

Anti-Jew = Antisemite

Anti-Muslim = Islamaphobe

Anti-Woman = Sexist

Anti-Immigration = Xenophobe

Anti-Straight White Man = ???????

Can you please help me to find the word. This is really bugging me.

                  Reverse is the opposite of drive on a vehicle. Reverse would be to go back. To reverse a decision would mean to go back to the original decision.

                    1. bottomlesscoffee007

                      But in order for that to be true, then we all would have to be different. From what I understand we are more similar than we are different, no?

                      Are straight white men really the majority? With all of the DNA testing that takes place, it seems that most have some percentage of African in their DNA.

                      Are there any true pure people anymore? Is a white man white through and through? Is a black man black through and through?

                      Plus, I keep on hearing about how the white majority in America has been replaced by blacks, Hispanics, Asians etc.

                      I wonder if these terms are meant to divide us? To suggest that only some are complex while others are simple?

                      A quick reference guide per say.

                      What’s the point of diversity if we all are meant to think the same?

                    3. bottomlesscoffee007

                      At the same time, is there really an issue with an individual being discerning or even discriminating?

                      If you choose to not associate with certain people, for color, sex, culture or affiliation. Shouldn’t that decision be left to the individual?

                    4. bottomlesscoffee007

                      Right. Isn’t it rather narcissistic to demand that someone be accepted for what they look like or how they live their life?

                    5. bottomlesscoffee007

                      I would concur with that. Now the question is, what fear is acceptable and what fear is not acceptable?

                    6. Fear for the sake of protection, safety may be wise. We need to use caution. Fear from ignorance, no excuse. Get to know the one you’re afraid of. You might find it baseless.

  1. Oh, boy! We live in a mixed up, crazy world. I don’t understand why we can’t accept one another as we are. When I was a little girl, this Irish/German fair-skinned, freckle-faced redhead wanted to be an American Indian. I wanted big brown eyes, long black hair and dark skin. Proof that I couldn’t even accept myself! I don’t care about the color of someone’s skin. I go by the color of people’s hearts. I don’t agree with the gay life-style or people using the “F” word a million times in one sentence, but God is our judge; not me. Why can’t we all just live and let live and let God handle everything? I’m preaching to myself, here. I’ve learned a lot, changed my straight-laced, narrow-minded views a lot, but I have a long way to go. I’ve learned more from my son and grand-kids tan I ever learned in church about acceptance and what is means to be a follower of Christ. When we hate others for this or that, we hate ourselves. So there’s a simple solution: Stop hating.

  2. ‘Arsenlefkophobe’,
    is the word your looking for
    From the greek;
    Lefkó Arsenikó = White Male.
    Words do change meaning
    over time. According to the
    writings of Homer, the term ‘lefkó arsenikó’, originally
    meant ‘Leftie Arsehole’.

      I thought so, yet they always say it’s impossible since everyone else is below the white man, they say that it is impossible.

      1. The individual who said that is simply racist an sexist. Nothing unusual about that.

        Take for example a narcissist, they don’t know they are one.

        People usually are unaware of negative qualities. It’s a protective measure of the mind to prevent low self esteem.

              1. It’s more is a desired behavior of our society.

                We are not a nation known for philosophy, we are a nation known for war and capitalism.

                But generally you can expand a persons understanding via examples over time.

                I’m not saying they’re hopeless, just that it doesn’t come natural to them given how they were raised or programmed by society.

                1. bottomlesscoffee007

                  Every single nation is know for war and greed. There has never been a nation built by anything else. There is no single nation that is known exclusively for philosophy.

                  None of us are hopeless.

                  1. True, it’s a universal condition of the human experience.

                    Although some are better at it than others. Like a possible scale.

                    Maybe Canada would be more to one side than the US. But both are still on the same measurement.

                    1. bottomlesscoffee007

                      It’s greed and always greed first. You cannot excuse greed for perceived philosophy. Greed drives false virtue. Everything is false virtue, since perceived virtue is profitable.

                    2. There is always everything. This is to say that there are always greedy acts being performed but at the same time there are people being selfless.

                      Everyone is experiencing life at a different rate of growth.

                      I would agree that it’s more likely to encounter greed but not that greed must be met first.

          1. Almost everything we learn in school is based around competition, economics, productivity and repetition.

            Self awareness, perception and critical thinking are not.

            So it’s common to encounter people like the one you are describing.

            1. bottomlesscoffee007

              Step one, realize I am a piece of shit.

              Step two, take in the fact that the possibility of others being pieces of shit as well.

              Step three, speak and act only for yourself!!!

              I agree Lander. Winners and losers instead of just plain ole people.

              1. Interesting way of looking at it.

                What if step one were realize you are only using a small percentage of your potential.

                Step two and that most people you meet are showing you what little they’ve learned so far.

                Step 3 enjoy life to the fullest because it’s short. Update others as you learn along the way.

                Just a thought

                1. bottomlesscoffee007

                  That’s why it’s impossible to be virtuous and civil. Once you start to think that people can be better you begin to expect better out of them. Once you start expecting, then you become impatient.

                  Let everyone be who they are, since we want to be who we are as well.

                  1. I would say that’s true to an extent.

                    To say one is good would be to much of a burden on the individual since they can’t live up to it. It would eventually corrupt them.

                    But all individuals can do good things.

                    What we think we are is misleading but how we act or what we say is revealing and descriptive of our character and how we think of others.
