CCXXXIX

“Not-all” man is like “Mr. Me Too.”

Whenever someone says that “we’re oppressed because of x, y and z,” Mr. Me Too will shout,

“Yeah me too!”

This position is false in many ways, particularly in its “performative” dimension. Nevertheless, it represents a conceptual advance over the unilateral model of oppression (i.e. oppressor does all the oppression [and therefore has all the agency], while the oppressed can be acted on or resistant). This is because it introduces the perspective of totality (admittedly in a lame way).

[“I know, I know, yep, yeah you too

Okay we get it, yep, yeah you too
I know, I know, yep, yeah you too
Okay everybody meet Mr. Me Too

I know what you thinkin’ why I call you Me Too
Cause everything I say, I got you sayin’ Me Too”
