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."

ITS MY BIRTHDAY (at Universal Studios, Orlando)
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.
