"…despite what conservatives may think, there is no “magical” force that creates shared prosperity and wealth in capitalist societies.
Piketty goes on to warn that if we don’t address America’s wealth inequality epidemic quickly, America could end up with the most top-heavy society it’s ever seen. Even worse than the Gilded Age."

"I didn’t realize it, but the days came along one after another, and then two years were gone, and everything was gone, and I was gone."
F. Scott Fitzgerald (via asleepyblueocean) ←

"The consciousness of victimization is a divided consciousness. To see myself as victim is to know that I have already sustained injury, that I live exposed to injury, that I have been at worst mutilated, at best diminished by my being. But at the same time, feminist consciousness is a joyous consciousness of one’s own power, of the possibility of unprecedented personal growth and the release of energy long suppressed. Thus, feminist consciousness is both consciousness of weakness and consciousness of strength. But this division in the way we apprehend ourselves has a positive effect, for it leads to the search both for ways of overcoming those weaknesses in ourselves which support the system and for direct forms of struggle against the system itself."
Sandra Lee Bartky, “Toward a Phenomenology of Feminist Consciousness,” Femininity and Domination (1990) ←

I frequently see girls, and even grown women, disassociating themselves from feminism because they believe it “victimizes” them.

I read an article in the New York Times about how male-dominated the computer science industry is, and it discussed how different women in the field think there are different ways to resolve this issue. One woman said that not discussing it at all would be the best solution, because if girls read about how hostile the industry is towards women they’ll be discouraged from pursuing it.

This logic is so incredibly absurd that I’m amazed grown, college-educated women could come to such conclusions. Discussing oppression does not cause oppression. Discussing oppression does not perpetuate oppression. There is absolutely no oppressive regime in history that came to an end by not talking about it. And it makes me very sad that some women cannot see the system that is actually victimizing them in every facet of their lives.

the worst thing you can say to someone is ‘you’re too sensitive’ because that’s basically saying ‘you feel things more deeply and fully than i do and this inconveniences me because now i have to be more mindful of my own actions’ 

you’re not too sensitive, the world is just callous and stubborn. sensitivity doesn’t make you weak and callousness doesn’t make you strong.
