I ask because I’m tired of feeling pretty well shut down by my family due to lack of job/world experience when it comes to ‘debate’.
Mostly how badly ACA fucked everyone, that anyone on welfare are ‘worthless lazy motherfuckers leeching off the government but can afford a new fucking car,’ and other variations of.
Yet at the same time insist I shouldn’t feel like I’m being attacked due to being disabled.
Frankly I see disability and social security as linked hand in hand. You want to axe social security because scammers supposedly filing for jobs they have no hope of getting just to have unemployment, or get rid of help for the elderly ‘because their families should be able to take care of them,’ and I can gurentee you that people will look at the the disabled and go ‘fuck them they are leeching from MY money I do not want to provide for the dead weight of the country. Get their families to care for them.’
On the other hand they do feed that those without families to rely on should get help…
Then again my stepdad maintains that white people are a new minority where we can’t this that or the other. Yea. Sure. That goes well past ‘people bleating white male privilege are going too far’ and just into straight out wtf territory.
I love my family. I have seen great acts of personal generosity and a firm belief that people should help their neighbor but at the same time ai can neither square how their mindset works nor can I figure out how the hell I am so different.
Then again look at me. This account has my name all over it.
