“His response was to fight it with the only weapons at hand—passive resistance and open displays of contempt.” ― Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan

White female acknowledges her privilege. That’s rare.

Rent is so high in San Francisco that I’m a software engineer and I live in a van – Quartz http://qz.com/524138/rent-is-so-high-in-san-francisco-that-im-a-software-engineer-and-i-live-in-a-van/

She’s living in a van. Because it’s a joke to her. And, something to write about.

“I am a young, white woman, which gives me the immense privilege of pulling up a creepy van and parking it without being harassed. People don’t report me; neither do they assume I’m a vagrant. They smile and ask if I need anything.

There are many people who are forced to live in their cars because they really cannot afford to live in the Bay Area. I am not technically one of them, and in doing this by choice I am inevitably appropriating their hardships.”

BUT WAIT!

Google workers and others have been living this way for many years! Why did we just see this, now, in the ‘news cycle’- with the first story being a white female- and days later, a slow trickle of other narratives?

This is ‘ white female supremacy’ in action- AGAIN!

Let me guess: is a white female running for office again- or something bigger?

I can’t wait!!!! for the news to tell me what to think next- and teach me how to privilege a narrative!

Another attempt to say it plain, which is, even then not simple.
