If you hang out in feminist circles, you’ll probably find the concept of the ‘mediocre white men’ - the incompetent man who finds himself getting promotions and rewards that others deserve simply due to the privilege of being born under a white supremacist patriarchy. He’s arrogant, self-righteous, and completely incapable of realizing his privilege. Some might this concept offensive, but I can’t find any offense with it; it describes me perfectly.
Forgive me if I get woman’s issues wrong here, I’m only describing my personal experiences: It seems to me that under patriarchy women are forced to become extremely competent people denied their appropriate status. All of the women in my life are super hardworking, juggling paid and unpaid, blue/white collar and emotional labor while still fulfilling their life goals to the best of their ability. If it weren’t for a patriarchal culture inhibiting them, they would go even farther then they are now.
I am the complete opposite. I was raised in a household where men were expected to do no work, since that was a “woman’s duty”. My and Dad were not to clean up after ourselves. My low B and C grades were “good enough”. I was pretty much coddled and spoiled like a child. Ironically as I have graduated college and am now failing to launch afterwards, the values that were supposed to reflect my elevated position in society have completely left me completely unprepared for an increasingly egalitarian society. I pretty much failed upwards the entirety of my academic career and will probably continue on the life of the failson. I believe I have always had adhd and depressive symptoms, but my socialization has made them grow to monstrous proportions. I can’t really take care of myself, my environment, I have no work ethic, too addicted to play to dedicate to work, etc. I’m also extremely timid, struggle to express myself, and have anger issues.
It’s only recently that I fully realized the extent that there was engrained sexism in my family. I’ve mostly spent this period paralyzed with guilt for the way I and my dad have treated my poor 60yo mom who pretty much do all the unpaid labor around the house without much past appreciation, who accepted it unconditionally as part of her traditionalist Christianity. Recently she got in an accident that left her with a broken leg and wrist, meaning that now we have to pick up the slack. My sister and aunt moved in to help as well.
There’s been a big difference in how we’ve coped with this, I suppose. My dad has refused to do anything and still depends on the women, while getting triggered whenever someone calls him out on it. It’s really made me lose my respect for him. For me it’s been… trying and failing to overcompensate, I guess. Trying to do housework I don’t really know how to do alone because I don’t want to burden them, resulting in me taking six hours to clean the bathroom at a B- grade. Even my sister who has similar mental struggles is able to be so much more competent than me, simply because of the expectations of her gender.
I wish I could be happy with what I’m doing now, but I feel like I will always be fighting a futile uphill battle against my socialization. I don’t know how to feel. Guilt is not a productive emotion. But I know that if I weren’t a white guy born in a rich family I would probably be completely screwed, and I struggle to process that. I feel years behind and tbh, destined for superfluity. Call it imposter syndrome but there’s definite systemic factors at play.
This country is dying.
if anyone thinks Biden is "left" he's no where near it
Exactly he isn't left. He's just a republican that lies to you. That's it. All the infighting is political theater and doesn't fucking matter.
This country is so far to the right that even the "left" is on the right.
As a centrist, I will inform you that both sides are insane. Republican and Democrat. Have fun!
Sure you are centrist. Are you pro life or pro choice, because you can't be both.
What's the centrist position between "kill the Jews" and "give people healthcare"? Because that's literally the two sides right now. Signed, An actual leftist who recognizes that the neolib Democrats are still right leaning, so a centrist is just a firmly right position in the states
'democrats are right leaning' is such a hilarious take
Is it a turn off if a guy is still a virgin just after college? I didn't manage to lose my virginity in college and I'm worried that it's going to hurt my chances in dating. I'm genuinely interested in learning to make a woman orgasm, but idk if people will want me to already be good at it at this point. Am I a red flag for being unable to find a sexual partner at this point?
Cancelled/did not take two geat jobs due to anxiety/panic/going out of my comfort zone in the course of one month. Starting to go on my friends nerves, its taking a toll on my fresh, absolutely beautiful relationship. Can't concentrate on anything because I'm nervous and self loathing I ruined my whole life.
holy shit they are pathetic
I miss human touch.
I literally voted democrat because of the promise of student loans being forgiven. I am 29 and I do not know if i plan on voting ever again. Whats the point? I'm going to die in debt anyways may as well get weird with it.
Its about investment dear redditor. Im invested in Biden and he has become a negative investment. If Trump gets in and im in no way shape or form invested in him he cannot let me down because I have done nothing to support him.
I understand that you believe this is as simple as getting student loan forgiveness. Thats a bit shortsighted. This is about me having worked painstakingly to elect a leader based off of their words and their words on everything they said continually falling short of their commitments made to me.
Whatever happens outside of the relationship I as an individual voting citizen have with the party I identify with or the official I’ve supported and assisted in electing is irrelevant.
Sure am seeing a LOT of this type of propaganda in the last couple of days, all over Reddit. BIG push to discredit Biden. Bots and new accounts are working overtime. Nevermind all the good stuff he HAS gotten accomplished in the short time he's been in office with a razor thin majority in Congress. Nevermind he had to mitigate a fucking pandemic and economic collapse and gutted government agencies.
which one of you's bot accounts are those lol fess up
TITLE: American Institutions Are Not Taking the Threat of Right-Wing Violence Seriously Enough
They are run...
By the same opportunists...
Just like Weimar republic in the 30s, rather than raising taxes on the rich to fix the country, go full fascism.
People think that it can't happen here. We have somehow convinced ourselves that there is something inherently evil or stupid about the German people that allowed someone like Hitler to rise to power and murder 11 million people. Instead of learning from history, we are convinced that we are better than that. So many fables to show the dangers of hubris and yet here we are.
Lol. Rentoids in the comments too:
We literally have enough money to house every person that ever dreamed coming to America. The estimates are about 900 million. We'd still have more lovable land area than China and an order of magnitude greater wealth.
We literally have so much surplus food we burn it for fuel and yet a gallon of milk costs $3.50 because the government subsidizes the farmers.
The wealth is tied up in the fucking walls. It's all fucking real estate. My money goes to my landlord, my family's big house? Banks and lanlords. The value of the dollar goes far but not in the US because of our landlords.
Title: There's nothing more frightening in America today than an angry White man
I’m a white guy and lemme tell ya….there ain’t a thing to be angry about. I feel zero oppression, I’m not really scared of anything (In an existential/political sense, Piranha fish scare the poop out of me). I’ve never had a negative interaction with the cops, I’ve used the old “college educated white cis guy” network to get jobs, buy a home and take advantage of other opportunities. No one is “coming for me,” I can assure you. There’s no “assault on my freedoms.” People who have wanted their slice of the pie are getting it and I can’t do anything but be happy for them and offer my help and support.
There are people out there who want what I have as easily as I’ve gotten it. They want a little of the hegemony that I’ve enjoyed. That’s fair, it’s human and it’s what’s right. The stage has to be shared because at the end of the day we’re all just people. If you are a white guy and you are angry you are actually just scared and too greedy to share the stage with people who don’t think mayonnaise is too spicy.
Yikes. It’s seems like you care enough to complain about other people for starters. Are you pissed that the media reported Kyle hanging out with Proud Boys and flashing a white nationalist sign? Nobody made that up. He’s also associated with a local militia, and has been witnessed itching to use his AR on protesters. He’s a little proto white nationalist who got his gun and went off to see who’d fuck with him and get shot. But again, the article is about the response to the ruling. Why wouldn’t you be concerned about that? Let me guess- you’re more concerned about anti Rittenhouse protesters than the douches who are definitely going to show up to protests armed and assuming immunity for “self defense” shootings?
I'm a middle aged white woman ,when my kids were small and i had a stroller and 3 kids in hand on the bus it was always young Black men who would offer and carry the stroller off the bus for me not white men .The white men sat there as i struggled to get on and off the bus but young Black men were gentlemen.
a few random comments:
Yeah. I’d rather fucking not go from being able to pay my bills and MAYBE save 200 bucks a month to living paycheck to paycheck JUST TO PAY THE INTEREST on my loans thank you very much. I left college for mental health/financial/family reasons and I have 20k in loans that I’ll likely never be able to pay off. I work BERY hard to survive and I’d rather not drown right now.
So we all in agreement to band together and boycott voting in the midterms if they dont either A) Permamently set the interest rate to 0% or B) Forgive 50,000 or more? Cause that'll for sure get the Dems to do something as the demographic that mostly votes for them will just not show up for them.
Biden could wipe it all away with a stroke of a pen but will not. Good luck in 2022.
> Most of the people whining about this predicament seem to think blaming their choices on other people misleading them is a valid argument. Sorry, if you’re smart enough to get into college you should have been smart enough to understand you couldn’t afford it.
This isn't exactly a fair statement. These are often 18 year old kids that lived a life being told "Go to college, get an education, you'll be better off!" without any actual qualifiers applied to it. It's easy to look in hindsight and go "Should have known"... but when you're brought up being lied to, it's not that easy. People don't just "learn" this stuff without going through the hard lessons. Sustained conditioning throughout your life is hard to overcome.
> Not sure what to tell you. It sounds like your parents lied to you and you’ve still got remnants of those unrealistic expectations with regards to the challenges life hands all of us. Have you brought this up with them? Maybe they’ll bail you out? Mine pushed me out of the house and into the military at 17, because my grades weren’t good enough when I left HS to get into college on a scholarship. Life ain’t fair, and we’re all dealing with our issues. Start being a bit more realistic and stop blaming others for your own self-inflicted wounds would be my next piece of free advice.
I literally told you that I don't have student loans, so you can stop going full old man yelling at the clouds with me :)
It's called empathizing with others and the issues they face, as well as taking a nuanced look at why certain conditions exist. That's not the same as assessing "blame". Why so many people are obsessed with that word is beyond me, but simple thinking brings simple answers, I guess.
Some free advice for you - read the conversation you're having instead of grandstanding and thumping your chest at people.
Have a good evening.
The amount of people I've gotten into arguments with over student loans on here is insane. I love how everyone is like "you picked the wrong major/school" or "You knew what you were signing up for deal with it!" My parents paid for my college, I have no dog in this fight. I just don't understand how people are such assholes about this. People are getting hurt by this and it seems like some people are happy to watch them drown.
finally moved out of residential after 4 months and get to use my phone now, what have i missed? bardfinn still on his meth binge? masterlawlz post any more feet pics? L4L still a good lolcow farm? thoughts on israel? etc. thanks
you guys already know which $175,000/yr ($0.00) salaryman this is. gotta respect the dedication to being internet hall monitor though, not even i am that neurodivergent
Burglars do give a shit about your week schedule. At least the ones who wish to not be caught red handed.
For example the car in this post is a perfect example. As said by the guide, a would be burglar would know at a glance that multiple days per week there is only one person at home, most likely the wife, and that this person would be out from 4pm to 7pm leaving the house unattended to go pick up the kids and bring them to their sports club.
Additionally, the burglar would know to bring a trailer to steal the bike. But most importantly, he knows there are guns in the household: one of the most prized burglary items as stolen firearms are always in high demand.
A quick look on FB would most likely yield even more information.
Burglars (at least the successful ones) do use info before targeting a home. A number of people have had their house burglarized while vacationing because they had the bad idea of posting photos of them while away on holiday on a public profile on facebook.
This is not paranoïa.
> “They’d know to bring a trailer” lol watch out honey, the burglars are here with the u-haul
You know some people have had their four tires stolen in the middle of the day in plain sight of everyone. Even for someone quick that takes at least half an hour.
There have been burglaries where the burglars have pretended to be a moving company and have burglarized entire homes using moving trucks.
Heck there are even stories of people stealing entire houses in trailer parks.
If you think that bike thieves / burglars don't steal bikes with trailers, you are in for a rude awakening.
yeah, real home security chads keep their bike in their home's walk-in bank vault when theyre not home to keep it safe from the trailer-burglars, its just common sense. Day of the Rude Awakening™️ when, vaultbros?
The whole Trump thing was just Russia making a fool of us, and unfortunately a lot of people bought into it. A majority is more than 50% and more than 50% didn't buy it.
Furthermore, Russia will pay dearly for what they have done and continue to do.

I wanna state that regarding right-wing ideologies, I studied a Bachelor of Economics/Bachelor of Commerce and I worked my ass off to achieve distinctions/High distinctions. I studied about 80+ hours a week for the first 18 months, then dropped to part time whilst working full time and still studied 40+ hours a week for years in order to understand the logic behind all the economic theories. Basically all they taught was free market ideology, which I believed at first, but I began to notice discrepancies between the real world and what we were being taught.
Economics sold out to the right and created this entire dilemma. 40 years ago there used to be a dichotomy between the working class and the business owners. Inequality was the lowest level since at least the 1800s, public debt was low, global gdp growth was higher despite no globalization or the internet and China being in poverty, unemployment was lower across the entire English speaking world (I think America was actually one of the few outliers, countries like Australia and England had unemployment rates averaging below 2% for 40 years), houses were affordable, wages were rising.
Then, despite the fact there was no economic theory in support of it, populist governments held unemployment below the natural rate of unemployment, and the Vietnam war resulted in the American government spending too much money. There was an oil price shock and suddenly there was stagflation.
A problem that wasn't even caused by economists at the time was blamed on their economic model by people like Milton Friedman, Frederich Hayek and the Mont Pelerin society. They preached that we should lower taxes on all members of society (which particularly effected the rich), that we should eliminate all economic regulations (thus increasing corporate profits), the government should stop trying to manage the economy and leave it up to the private sector via the 'invisible hand' a.k.a. Economic's version of God. Given the outsized influence the top 1% tends to have on politics, the obvious benefits of this type of policy to them and the presence of an inflationary crisis, they managed to change the economic system we're in. Now mainstream economics basically only teaches their theories.
Now data has proven all of their theories wrong. It turns out the Post-Keynesians were right (not to be confused with Keynesians, who tend to combine Keynes's general theory with classical neoliberal ideology). Ever since adopting a new system global gdp growth has been lower, inequality has trended up to the highest levels seen since at least the 1800s across the Western world and is growing, unemployment has been higher across most of the Western world, from an average of 1.9% to over 5% in Australia, public debt/gdp has been growing, interest rates have trended down to their lower bounds which has pushed up the cost of housing (and today's youth completely missed out on this boost in wealth given to the Boomers, interest rates can't keep falling), real wages have been stagnant for 40 years despite productivity (real output per unit of work) steadily trending upwards, bank loans/GDP have grown to twice their WW2 peak, the entire financial system looks like it will collapse within the next 10 years. If you follow post-keynesian economics all of these effects were easily predicable consequences of neoliberalism. Yet the economics community refuses to admit they made a mistake, and these problems remain invisible to those who trust in the free market.
They teach the Economic equivalent of right-wing propaganda in almost every economics degree in the English speaking world. They teach the crap in high school. They teach it so, whether they intended it this way or they're just ignorant, people vote in politicians who support policy that damages their own life, e.g. private healthcare/no minimum wage/lowering estate taxes. They teach it because Universities get funding based on their journal rankings and all the top journals support free market ideology. Researchers who support free market ideology tend to receive more funding. Graduates who disagree with free market ideology will struggle to find work in their field. It's the dumbest shit in the world, Economist's nowaday's are less accurate in their predictions than a fucking coin flip, yet they refuse to admit their models must be wrong. But yeah, this free market ideology bullshit tends to favor right-wing politics and is part of the reason why right-wing idiots support shit like privatized healthcare and lowering the taxes of the rich, because they've been brainwashed by credible sources. Peter Schiff has no idea how the economy works.
When plutocrats can hire enough Congresspeople to block any changes that would benefit the public at large, this kills any possibility of just laws or legitimate, democratic self-governance.
The GOP, AKA the capitalist-racist-criminal alliance, is hired to inflict as much poverty, suffering, and disenfranchisement on workers and black and brown people as possible, in the same way that slave owners inflicted enormous socioeconomic abuse on slaves in order to maintain slavery.
The more impoverished and disenfranchised the working class is, the more wealth and power the plutocrats have.
They need to continuously cultivate racism and unfathomable stupidity to have enough votes to be viable.
This arrangement is killing our country.
You can't have "bipartisan" democratic deal-making with the GOP, because the GOP is hired to advance racism and plutocracy over sensible democratic self-governance.
Our institutions are well overdue for a 21st century update/overhaul if we want to remain a viable country.

The issue is “colorblindness”.
"Colorblindness” is a massive, misguided gaslighting effort against people of color. It’s little more than a really weak attempt to invalidate the concept of systemic racism. That’s why the political Right won’t let it go, even though social scientists abandoned it a long time ago.
Let’s all acknowledge that no one is actually “blind” to race. We all see and unconsciously recognize the physical and/or cultural markers of race when we see a human.
Seeing those things is not racist. It would be absurd to claim that acknowledging and appreciating the diversity of the human experience is racist. What’s racist is choosing to be ignorant of the cultural and historical contexts that have a material impact on the lives of people unlike yourself. The simple fact of the matter is that society hasn’t and doesn’t treat everyone the same.
On an individual level, we all have unconscious biases. Even if you don’t think you’re racist. Whether you choose to accept it or not, they do impact the way you move through the world.
Rules aren’t colorblind, either. Schools across the U.S. have dress codes that specifically ban natural Black hair and hairstyles, deeming it distracting or unprofessional. Is it “colorblind” when children of one race are told that their natural features are good enough for school, while children of another race are told that their natural features are unacceptable and forced to commit time and energy to altering themselves in order to gain access to an education?
Redlining. Crack vs cocaine. Racial biases in hiring.
Pretending colorblindness is a thing is a massive slap in the face to the people who have been affected by these and other systemic inequities.
Social scientists moved beyond colorblindness decades ago. Just because the general public has been held back by right-wing talking points doesn’t mean we need to entertain these outdated nonsense concepts.
> Can we stop focusing on Trump now, please? We could probably just have a sticky called "Old Man Yells at Cloud" and link to whatever stupid thing he said today, and keep the rest of the sub for topics that are actually important.
I know it's tempting to let the failed fascist fade into obscurity, but he's still extremely relevant and dangerous. Look at the Beer Hall Putsch. That was the Nazis' version of the 1/6 attack, and they didn't succeed either. Hitler went to jail for it. Then he dictated Mein Kampf and returned to take over the country.
Ugh fine. You are letting tribalism cloud your judgment. Fox is making bold claims with little evidence. The reason there is little coverage of conservative views is that they are fucking wrong. “You can’t do abortions that baby is a soul it’s murder” ok prove there is a soul! The typical response is “god something something religion the Bible” well prove god is real. You can’t. Just because a book says it’s real doesn’t mean it is. “Just because you have never seen him doesn’t mean he isn’t real!!” Is the response I get from 5 year olds telling me unicorns are real. Seriously stop it. “Give us guns” what purpose does giving firearms to random people serve? Self defense? No. If someone tries to mug you and you have your gun freedoms they are gonna use a gun. If they see you pull a gun out they are gonna shoot you. You could also hunt wildlife I guess. Yeah the gun and ammo are totally gonna cost less than buying shit at the supermarket. You only need a gun if you are gonna live in the woods and hunt for survival. Not to carry it with you at all times. Oh what about terrorists? These Mexicans are terrorists in disguise! No they aren’t. That is paranoid beyond belief. Not all Muslims are terrorists! That is a stereotype! I bet you feel offended when you hear people American stereotypes like how fat and stupid they are. Think of that but having a physical impact on you when you are stuck in your terrible country because America is convinced you are a murder trying to bomb them.
The core problem is that well reasoning is meant to be a social tool and not actually help us reach truer conclusions and also that people’s emotions and personal thoughts are being confused with fact.
