Thought I would make a post where people can share their experiences of not having privilege. So please share freely in the comments section. The saddest, most pathetic and depressing responses will win a trip* to a top notch psych ward where they can get the appropriate treatment for their pathetic life.
Because I have big feet I keep stubbing my toes on everything and then I need to buy more band-aids.
Because I am a woman I get a period and it makes me really cranky and tired, but I am still expected to function like a normal person by all of society.
Because I have boobs I am expected to wear bras, but the pretty name-brand ones are so expensive that I can only wear cheap ass knock-offs and that makes me feel like less of a woman.
Because I am not financially well-off I can't go drown my sorrows with a $7 Latte at Starbucks when I am depressed, and that makes me even more depressed.
Because my parents never bought me my first car I was forced to start working to pay for one, as well as all the gas, insurance, and license plate fees each year.
Because I m afraid of spiders I can't go into the back shed to get things, and that infringes on my rights to move about freely in society.
Because I have 4 kids I can't go out and party every night, and that makes me feel very oppressed and limited in my being able to make my own choices.
Because I am lactose intolerant I can't enjoy cheese at a wine and cheese party, and that makes me feel marginalized.
Because I don't have an i-phone I feel persecuted and targeted as a minority every time I hear or see an ad for them.
Because I have a husband who takes out the garbage every day without asking me if he can, I feel like less of an independent and capable human being, even if I don't really want to do it.
Because I wrote this list, I now feel even more depressed, oppressed, obsessed, and distressed.
*If you win the trip, please note that you'll have to pay for it all your self because all my money is going to pay for my own therapist now that I've written this depressing list.
