Stuff White People Draw Stick Figures About



Over at Small Peculiar I liken this type of self-abasement to the reflexive recitation of prison rape jokes. It seems to me fearful and compulsive in the same way. There's something else it reminds me of: conversations with very earnest young men about how women are better than men because they can nurture, you know, they aren't savages like men whose only biological imperatives are fucking and killing. The price of this greater spiritual purity, of course, is less money and lower social status forever, but at least the ruling class freely admits that that isn't fair! Look, it can even joke about how unfair that is! That makes everything OK.
