How many people who claim to love the voices of poor people listen to people like me, a formerly homeless person and currently poor person? How many people actually listen to women on welfare or who have actually been on any type of welfare before? How many people actually pay attention to women without degrees? How many people take us seriously?
Don’t use us as pawns in your superiority game. We are not toys you can play with or cards you can bring out when you think you’re losing. We’re smart enough to know who is really there for us and who listens to us and who doesn’t. Don’t insult our intelligence.
