Shit rich college kids say

Well yeah, g***y is a slur, but how else is Disney supposed to explain what Esmeralda is? Nobody knows what g***ies call themselves. If you say to a kid, ‘oh, it’s a g***y,’ they’ll know what you’re talking about. It’s just the way things are.

Shit Rich College Blogger Says

Haha, wow. So Shitrichcollegekidssay must have read the replies that Kresh962 and I made, but rather than thoughtfully examine the fact that there just may be (there is) such a thing as sex-based oppression and it exists as part of an intersection of oppressions, they deleted the post and then went on to field 3 asks in a row about transphobia to… Put us in our place, I guess? It’s super weird because I’ve been to the blog before and there are never rapid-fire replies all having to do with the same thing like that. 

My favorite part is that one of the asks is like, hitting every offensive mark and then “said by a women’s studies major,” and then they go on in the tags to act like this is ‘proof’ that what Kresh and I said about sex class existing (and we both also said that gender class exists, and didn’t make negative remarks about trans people) is all actually bullshit and just LOOK at all of these evil transphobic feminists!

I mean, the three asks they just received rapid-fire make up about a third of the total transphobia-tagged asks they have, and the last one wasn’t since October 16th. It just seems really… Falsified. And that’s pretty rude in and of itself, like, don’t use some people’s struggle as your weird bargaining point in e-fights. Which isn’t to say people DON’T say the things submitted, because they totally do, but like come on. The posts about sex class and radical feminism didn’t even get more than 40 notes and a vast majority of those were Likes, you don’t have to salt the earth to cleanse your blog of the fact that two radicals came in and said sex class also exists and provided you with reading material you pretended you were going to check out.

As always I won’t fight anyone in Asks or reblogs about this. It just blows my mind sometimes how people who bill themselves as progressive will straight up deny sex-based oppression even occurs. 

It’s physically impossible for a woman to reach an orgasm without a man. No, don’t look at me like that - it’s a fact of biology! This explains why women don’t masturbate the way men do, and why lesbian relationships don’t last. Look it up.

There’s an RA in my building who I haven’t met yet but we sat at neighboring tables at breakfast this morning and I was forced to absorb every. single. word. of his long-winded rant against assistance-dependent families and families who exist in a cycle of poverty. He argued that those on assistance should be forced to perform community service for every day they go jobless, that those on assistance should be forced to attend a post-secondary institution so that they “realize there are alternatives” and that any children born to individuals on government assistance should be removed from their parents care until said parent is self-sufficient. And that’s not even the half of it.

I wanted in that moment SO BADLY to be brave and confrontational. I wanted more than anything to be able to turn around and tell him, as a former impoverished/homeless person who’s been granted the privilege of turning her circumstances around and stopping the cycle in its tracks, to have a little compassion and fuck off with the heartless judgements about people he clearly has no desire to understand.

But I didn’t, because I knew that if he got angry back I’d instantly become small and apologetic for it. And I hate myself for it.

On the plus side I at least have my very first shit rich college kids say submission.

Someday I will be brave. Someday I’ll figure it out. And then I’ll change the world.

So I’m seeing a bunch of shit going around on shitrichcollegekidssay and normally theyre pretty decent, but this crap about “genderfluid people MUST tell you how they identify IN THAT MOMENT or they’re being MISOGYNSTIC if they talk about their experiences of sexism and misogyny” is so off. Like, no? Sorry? If someone makes a shitty comment about women while I’m experiencing myself as something other than that, I’m going to feel t as misogyny because it’s not like I forget what being a woman feels like the moment I decide I feel masculine. It’s still insulting a part of my identity and it’s still a personal attack. I don’t stop identifying with womanhood even when I’m not feeling that way RIGHT THIS SECOND. It’s an extremely flawed and hurtful argument and I’m frankly surprised and disappointed that Najia went there, since her analysis is usually pretty good. 

I just want everyone to understand that I follow a blog called “Shit Rich College Kids Say” which posts the ridiculous, horrid things overheard by “rich college kids” and posts them to bring awareness to the ignorance of some people.

When I reblog these posts it is because I agree that the posts are racist/homophobic/sexist and I want to spread that awareness that these thoughts/opinions are disgusting, I do not reblog them because I agree with these opinions.

I would have thought that was pretty obvious, but I am being personally attacked by others for reblogging these posts and I would never want anyone to misunderstand and think I was agreeing with things like this.

I apologise to anyone who felt offended by this.

My coworker was complaining today about how she doesn't have a day off,

and she said she wants Saturdays off but her manager won’t let her. Her only hours in that department are Saturday and Sunday; when she signed up for that department, she agreed to work THOSE hours specifically. She works 3-4 hour shifts Monday and Wednesday in my department. Her commute to school is twenty minutes and she has Tuesdays completely off classes. She has a horse she feeds and trains for competitions daily ew.

And I guess I’m just pissed off that she can afford to have time off, even though she has to house and tend to a horse which is thousands a month, so she feels like it’s her right to have time off. Now that my bill has totaled up at school, I can’t afford to take any time off; if I take more than one shift off work a MONTH, I won’t be able to afford driving or food. Monday to Friday, I drive about an hour and twenty minutes down in traffic at 6am and I drive back in about an hour at 11am or 3pm. I’m estimately roughly $100 a week just on gas. I’m up from 5 to 10 almost every single day, and I’m not okay with it, but where can I get off the ride?

She talks about being tired and being stressed out and ‘deserving’ time off. Fucking christ girl we all deserve time off. In a perfect world, no one would work. Work is the most horrifying experience of a person’s life; literally, working a job is traumatic and defies our most basic needs as animals. But you are a rich little girl who literally works to afford her Starbucks every single day. Your parents pay for school, for your car, for your horse. Look at things from the perspective of someone who has to pay for everything on their own with no help. Even I have it better than most people. I at least have a supportive mother and work environment.

I know I’m just venting really badly, but still, college isn’t meant to be easy. If everyone could just focus on higher education and not on bills, more people would appreciate and enjoy college. But alas, some of us need to get by, and we have to grind through every single day and just hope for the best.
