“ If you’re offering plus size and not enough people are buying them, that is a marketing problem. ”

IT COULD ALSO BE THAT THE THINGS YOU’RE OFFERING ARE GARBAGE THOUGH

I DO NOT WANT TO DRESS LIKE A MATRONLY TODDLER OR A SEQUINED BEAN BAG CHAIR

fun statistics for adults!
“when I was a kid, I had no help with college tuition, I was hardworking and paid it all myself”
-Annual tuition for Yale, 1970: $2,550
-Annual tuition for Yale, 2014: $45,800
-Minimum Wage, 1970: $1.45
-Minimum Wage, 2014: $7.25
-Daily hours at minimum wage needed to pay for tuition in 1970: 4.8
-Daily hours at minimum wage needed to pay for tuition in 2014: 17.3

NOT TO MENTION A COLLEGE DEGREE WAS NOT SOMETHING EVERYONE NEEDED TO HAVE 20-30 YEARS AGO

SO IF YOU DIDN’T WANT TO OR COULDN’T AFFORD TO GO TO COLLEGE YOU COULD STILL HAVE A COMFORTABLE, MIDDLE-CLASS LIFE WITHOUT ONE

“ If we think of the douchebag as a social identity as much as an accusation, as a subject with a distinctive persona locatable within the categories of race, class, gender and sexuality, then we find that the term carries a remarkably precise definition.
 
The douchebag is someone — overwhelmingly white, rich, heterosexual males — who insist upon, nay, demand their white male privilege in every possible set and setting.
 
The douchebag is always a white guy. But he is more than that. The douchebag is the demanding 1%, and the far more numerically significant class of white, heterosexist men who ape and aspire to be them. Wall Street guys are douchebags to be sure, but so is anyone looking to cash in on his white male privilege.
 
This narrowness of categorization — perhaps unique in the history of America’s rich history of racial and sexual slurs — is what makes the word douchebag such a potentially useful political tool. ”

This is a great, interesting, insightful, long read.

Africa has a greater population than North and South America combined.  Asia has a greater population than the rest of the world combined.  But they’re still treated as a pair of internally homogenous entities, each with a single shared culture throughout the continent.
