inequality is alive and well, alas.
I know I said “poor” in item #10, but I was being lazy. I’m sorry. What I really meant was “broke.” Don’t get some chip on your shoulder about how disenfranchised you are because all you have is a liberal arts degree and 100 Top Ramens. It will make you sound silly and careless. Some people have been systemically disadvantaged their entire lives and now they live in their cars and don’t even have Bottom Ramen. Here’s an easy way to tell the difference: If you got arrested, do you have someone that could bail you out of jail? If the answer is yes, then you are broke and not poor. “Poor” is not a game. You are “broke.

The type of class based feminism fail I was talking about: http://manarchistryangosling.tumblr.com/
Feminism is not simply a struggle to end male chauvinism or a movement to ensure women have equal rights with men; it is a commitment to eradicating the ideology of domination that permeates Western culture on various levels - sex, race, class to name a few- and a commitment to reorganising US society so that the self-development of people can take precedence over imperialism, economic expansion and material desires.
