    Why is your oppression more oppressing than someone's else's oppression? Get ready for call outs if you weenie out.

    Well, nobody's gonna be able to top my level of oppression.

    I keep having to answer inane questions from this one particular poster on a web-forum I frequent.

    Do I ye or ne this one thing? Do I watch what people say?

    Really, just the nuttiest things you've ever been asked.

    So you say, "just ignore him."

    Oh, sure, blame the victim.

    In RL, I'm the least oppressed person there's ever been, and happy to acknowledge as much.

    I'm having a bad run. People are having to explain my jokes. I'm not getting other peoples. I wish I could blame it on being oppressed, but that option is not open to me.

    No choice but to stop making jokes.

    Alright I will start. Disability via a chronic fatiguing illness has got your oppression beat. Whereas with other oppressions you can slog a work-around, with fatiguing illness you simply cannot slog. You cannot rally, you cannot willpower, you cannot hustle. You can't really get help, only be given help. And you are tired so you don't inspire anyone. Also people don't believe you.

    This could shape up to be a one-downs-manship contest!

    I dunno... I thought LucyDuke's questions about how many tables, lamps, and chairs we own were a bit odd.

    Kinda reminds me of the time you told me I really don't have fibromyalgia, but rather Lyme disease. Who cares what the doctors and specialists say, or the fact that I hadn't been anywhere that I could have been bitten? :hmm:

    If there actually was an oppression Olympics it would be so unfair, some countries have so much more oppression than others. Imagine Sweden against Eritrea. No one could best the morbidly obese transgender disabled womxn from the Congo.

    Likely some african countries have more opression (eg when civil war happens and people start losing hands) but unemployment is already highly opressive.
    Body image issues can be too, eg bdd.
