What if the problem is I am a straight white man? #WeAreTheProblems
I overthink everything to make the world a happier place
What if the problem is I am a straight white man?
I got screamed at by a comedian on a Netflix special for being a straight white man.
About how I was ruining her life and the world and everybody on every single level possible.
Which I thought was pretty impressive, given that I'm on my bum, binge-watching a chromecast.
But she's right.
And it's great that my rule of terror is finally over, because I've got a daughter.
And there's no way I want her anywhere near any planet that I've had any part in creating.
But now - as a breeder - looking back, I can't help thinking...
Did I just completely waste my straight white man privilege?
All that extra money I got, I spent on struggling to trick women into breeding with me.
At best trying to impress, but mostly just absolute out-and-out downright utter deception.
And then when I did finally get to procreate, I blew it all on overpriced shoes and piling their bedrooms with plastic.
It's a bitter pill, but maybe... honky baby makers didn't make the best of it.
On the upside, I know my daughter's gonna make us proud.
What if I want a cheap ticket but the ticket office is shut? #WeAreTheProblems
