The most frustrating part about that whole Black Friday, “criticizing American consumerism is NOT classist, shut up!!!” clusterfuck wasn’t just the refusal of so many people to acknowledge that many poor people do shop Black Friday for deals, but also that no one stopped to think about the causes of this consumerism.
Dude, as long as people chalk poverty up to character flaws (laziness, selfishness, etc), some people will always feel compelled to spend money they don’t have on shit they don’t need to project an image of financial stability.
That’s not the only issue here, but I sure as shit didn’t see it in any of those rants.
As someone who is a daughter, I know for a fact that the “shotgun” is not about protection but about not acknowledging her sexuality at all.
Daughter isnt supposed to have a sexuality. The shotgun is there to say “you don’t get to have sex with my property”
Ain’t no damn purity balls for little boys. Its on daughters.
Sexist men dont get less sexist after having daughters. They just change their tactics under the guise of “love”
