The Victimhood Olympics

Commit a crime? It’s poverty, education, systematic racism.

Office assistant doesn’t make as much as an underwater welder? Gender wage gap.
Crap on cop cars? Wall St. made me do it.
Beat someone half to death? They were microagressing me with their thoughts.
Financed $100,000 in underwater basketweaving? Capitalism’s fault I don’t make $50/hr at Hot Topic.
It’s an admittedly alluring concept, a life of consequence-free living. It’s not real, but don’t tell poor Bernie that. What happens when you aren’t a victim, however?
