A lot of guys are sick of women (and men) bitching about inequality. They think it’s overdone, people should just get over it, etc. They think that talking about it won’t make it go away. When one of Leigh Alexander’s many posts went up on Kotaku, many of the comments said things like “stop labeling …

I keep hearing rich people ask why they are hated for their wealth. Like this: Ah, yes. This does make me rage. I am told quite frequently that I should be working a few full time jobs to pay for school. I should not have any student loans, I should be paying for all of …
