ramblings of a sleep-deprived costume designer
~ Wednesday, July 23 ~


i find it really relatable and fresh that audioposts on tumblr fuck up like this so often because i, too, freeze and release one loud, sustained buzzing sound when forced to expend any effort on anything at all

Brain teasers for egalitarians/equalists.




Say I’m 32 years old and you’re 22 years old.

In how many years will we be the same age?

Silly question, right? If you define aging as a process that stops at death, the only way we’ll ever be the same age is if I die first. If you don’t, then we’ll never be the same age. Every time you age a year, I also age a year. Since our ages increase at the same rate, you will never catch up to my head start. We have achieved a total equality of aging, but that does not change the permanent inequality of our age.

Okay, say I have a million dollars and you’re completely broke. If we both get a dollar a day, how long will it take you to catch up with me?

Now, this one’s even sillier, because if you have no other resources, your dollar a day is going to be eaten up by basic living expenses that it doesn’t quite meet, and I have an excess of money that can be spent on money-making opportunities that pay off far better than an additional $365 a year. I could literally burn the dollar I’m getting as part of our Totally Equal Income and still make more money in a year than you do just by sticking my money in the bank. 

But still: both of us getting a dollar a day is totally equal, right? It means we’re being treated exactly the same.

And now, final problem:

If we have a world that contains structural inequalities, systemic imbalances, disproportionate danger faced by some, and unequal access to resources and opportunities, is “treating everyone the same” really going to result in equality?

Show your work.

I may have reblogged this already but I don’t care it’s important.

And that’s before we get into the fact that even that example is very neutral - if you’re poor, people will GO OUT OF THEIR WAY to punish you.  If you’re rich, people will even GIVE YOU free shit.  It’s not just having a larger capital reserve to draw upon, there’s literal social benefit/punishment on top of that.

I remember a privileged guy I knew, having to go into the municipal water dept. to pay a bill, in person, for the first time and being amazed at how shitty everyone was being treated.

there’s a lot of unspoken pressure to keep liking the things you used to like and to keep dressing the way you’ve always dressed and to never question what you believe in and basically “be yourself” has slowly morphed into “be what everyone knows you as” but trust me when i say if you just give it up and simply make decisions and take actions based purely on what would make you happy, you’ll gain a very comforting sense of self peace
