And to devalue themselves, their work, their achievements and their potential for happiness if they do happen to end up in a working class job.
You’re not better than people in low paid jobs, and no job is beneath you. People are so much more than the things they have to do to pay rent. The economy is wrecked, and inequality is widening, both in terms of income and opportunity. It’s fucked up that people’s worth is measured by the money they make and the status of their job (or lack of job). It’s fucked up that minimum wages are set as low as businesses can get away with, not by what people need to live. It’s fucked up that your social class, race and gender will still skew your chances of success.
If you see a low wage worker or unemployed person you don’t know their story. You don’t know the choices they’ve had to make, or the struggles they’ve faced, or the things they’re proud of, and the things they’re working towards.
For in dreams, we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let him swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud.
Hypothesise this. Art is ubiquitous; it is in everything we do, we see, we hear, we feel, we believe, we think, we perceive, we doubt, we questions, we taste, we dislike, we like, we love, we hate. But of course, it is not a dichotomy but rather an awe-inspiring spectrum….
The evolution of girl gamers
Boy gamers are so self-centered they act as though women haven’t been playing video games for decades, and then act horrified when the female gamers who have always been there actually become visible and vocal about the rampant misogyny that has infected the gaming world.
Like seriously, how entitled do you have to be that women saying “it sure would be nice if I wasn’t treated like shit while enjoying the games I play” translates to “I must be catered to” when video games have LITERALLY been catered to men for decades?
