That’s you putting words in my mouth. I didn’t say anything about fault or weakness. You are entirely and completely a product of the patriarchy you’ve been raised in with that zero sum thinking. Someone has to go down in order for me to be elevated. That’s the entire social issue in a nutshell right there. The world doesn’t actually work that way. It’s possible for more than one person to have problems; it’s possible to care about everybody. The world is made of incredible nuance. I don’t have to choose a team and neither do you.
