i love this piece. thank you for writing it.
i would add one more adjective here, or maybe 2. “educated” and “living above the poverty line.”
there are straight white men living in our very country who are being discriminated against because of their class and/or lack of education. not many of them may be reading this forum (see, i made a generalization about them right there). but i think it’s important to remember that while gender, race, and sexual preference are definitely very obvious places in which to observe discrimination, CLASS is another biggie. perhaps the oldest one in history (except for gender, probably).
fantastic article! :)
