I just got back from Target!! I spent a lot more, but I'm also celebrating a little bit (new job!!) so I figure it's justified. I don't like shorts, so I got two pairs of like knee length pants and a few tops. I desperately needed to get out of cotton, so I un-cotton-ed (totally a word) and I'm pretty excited.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
