I'm 53. Age and experience have some value. Meanwhile, most of the world seems to think I'm a total fucking loser due to my "lack of accomplishments."
I'm trying to figure out how to write about 2xE issues so that other people with such issues have a better shot at making life work for them before they are, say, sixty.
Blaming individuals for society's shortcomings is not a great way to help people. In a developed world, we should have better answers for 2xE people than accusing them of being lazy, difficult and not trying hard enough for not readily fitting the standard mold.
We are all products of our environment. Kids who are different often grow up to be broken people because the system set out to break them. Then they spend the rest of their lives being blamed for that.
