marcicat: (duckling)

I’ve been trying to figure out a post about work, and how people in power use the phrase “we don’t want you to feel that way” like it’s the end of the conversation, like any discontent you feel after that is your own fault, certainly not theirs (they don’t want you to feel that way), like they bear no responsibility for the structures that created the feeling in the first place, and often won’t even acknowledge that those structures exist and that some benefit from them while some do not.

But it’s not a new story, and it’s been told so many times by better tellers than me, and yet —

But it’s sunny and it’s summer and I have the day off and the cat is sleeping next to the keyboard. And so, the day rolls on.
