Question of the Whenever # 4: The Politically Correct Hierarchy of Victimhood

Michael Lumish

I need help creating the Politically Correct Hierarchy of Victimhood and am looking for suggestions.

The question is, who goes where on the hierarchy?

My first suggestion would look something like the below, with the allegedly most victimized human beings (and, thus, most politically worthy) at the top of the list and the allegedly most privileged human beings (and, thus, least politically worthy) at the bottom.

This first look at the possible structure considers ethnicity and sexual orientation, but does not include certain other necessary differentiations. For example, what about Jews and Far East Asians? What about old people? Or, say, old Korean people? Or, say, old wealthy Korean people? Or,  say, old wealthy Korean people of the male variety?

Or what about old wealthy Rosicrucian-Korean tranny albinos?

Understand, of course, that I find the whole notion of  a Politically Correct Hierarchy of Victimhood vomitous and bigoted... but, then, I am not politically correct, either.

Sadly, others do not take my personal nausea into consideration when they go about formulating their notions of politics and justice.

Nonetheless, this is a first pass:


Politically Correct Hierarchy of Victimhood (Prospective)

Arab-Muslim Men

Non-White Men

Non-White Women

Non-White LGBTQIA+

White LGBTQIA+

White Women

White Men

I am, of course, tempted to add economic class into the mix, but I am not entirely certain just who the social justice warriors (SJWs) hate more, rich white guys or poor white guys?

One would think that rich white guys would be at the very bottom, but rich white guys tend to be more "progressive" than poor white guys. Furthermore, they can sometimes afford to finance the organized anger of SJWs and they - unlike their deplorable trailer-trash cousins - can make amiable chit-chat over dinners that they pay for. For this reason, if we were to add economic class to the hierarchy, poor white guys would probably be at the very bottom.

In any case, this is a starting point.

Suggestions are welcome.

  1. Dontcha know? White men cannot be part of any victimhood scale since they alone are responsible for all victims to begin with.

    1. That's an excellent point.

      What we could do is a put a horizontal dotted-line down the middle. Those above the line are victims to greater and lesser degrees, while those below the line are victimizers to greater and lesser degrees.

      I'm sure that we're reinventing the wheel - there are probably gaggles of sociologists out there who have already created such models - but it's still an interesting pedagogical exercise.

      They rarely discuss it in blunt terms, but there is a hierarchy of victimhood on the progressive-left. The line is dotted to indicate fluidity between the spaces.

      How's that grab ya?

    2. A bit of refinement: Palestinian Muslim men above "regular" Arab Muslim men, and Ashkenazi Zionist Jews below White men.
      It's mind boggling actually: they are both oppressing the most victimized group directly, and controlling the most oppressive country on the planet (America) through ZOG. The ultimate oppressors!

    3. well said Jacob, tho I would almost put Mizrahi Jews below Ashkenazis because to the left, Mizrahis don't exist because they defeat the "White Israel Imperialist" narrative.

  2. BAFTA, the British Oscars published a diversity checklist that movies have to comply with to qualify for an award. My question is can you cast movie with all the PC victims but where the movie celebrates really horrible things. Can you have a movie with an all black gay Muslim female cast that celebrates child rape and cannibalism? Can you have a cast of trannies as Bond villains destroying the environment. Feminist slave holders?

    1. Precisely.

      It's not just that many on the Left didn't seem to give a shit about the economic well-being of the allegedly "angry" white working-class, but that many spit in their faces while doing so.

      Angry white men, my ass.

      If you want to see angry just review the news footage the week after the election.

      Now, that's fucking angry.

  4. But are not we permitted to self identify as anything we like? Black, white, male, female, Native American, Refugee, whathaveyou?

    And where does our soon to be ex President rank? Unless they managed to alter reproductive biology, didn't he fall out of his white mother's vagina?

    1. Oh, sure, you're a trouble maker, aintcha?

      You do have a point, though.

      There is a trend within cultural progressivism to suggest that certain social categories are not merely fluid, but entirely arbitrary and, therefore, entirely open to personal inclinations.

      In fact, my dear Trudy, you have just put your finger on a very significant contradiction - a nerve point - within western-left political philosophy.

      If gender, ultimately, is a personal decision (ala Caitlyn Jenner) and race is not even considered a biological category within science, then just what is the basis of the politically correct hierarchy?

      Does it not blow away in the wind?

      And, if so, does not all this castigating of "angry white men" demonstrate the hypocrisy at the heart of identity politics.

      Hmmmm....

  5. On university campuses, there are two groups that you can attack-Jews and white males. According to the PC crowd, Jews are categorized as being white and thus among the "privileged white' class. As long as you don't display swastikas on campus, the universities will ignore it.

    When you look at the worldwide resurgence in anti-Semitism, in the US, the focal point is on our university campuses.
