Men work every day on the internet, on the streets, in the office and in ever other crevice of public life to remind women that they are things. They gaslight us and tell us our perspective is invalid. The media decides that women’s stories are inconsequential. They piss on every attempt we make to make a world that works better for everyone.
America loves helping the shoeless, iphoneless, voteless, bug-infested Street Jesuses. These are the lost-cause poor; all they want is your pocket change. (Bless their hearts.) But the working poor? Those who claim to not have enough money for food because they also need clothes for work, water for bathing and laundry, rent for housing, heat in the winter, money for daycare, a smartphone for their job, car insurance and gas — those are some shifty motherfuckers.
