  •  I really wonder what it's like to be a white male (5+ / 0-)

    in this country (especially growing up in the 70's & 80's). I know what it's like being a white woman so I know the goodies I have gotten but I gotta tell ya, I don't ever recall "livin' the american dream" as being a thought that crossed my head. I wonder how many passes from superiors and subordinates Mr. Ryan has had to dodge in the workplace? I wonder how Mr. Ryan has coped with knowing that the guy next to him made more $$$ than him because, well he is a she? I wonder how Mr. Ryan must feel when other men tell him what he can and cannot do with his vagina? Oh, yeah, he has a penis. Mr. Ryan may have thought or thinks often how he's livin the american dream but there are about 75% of us in the USA where that "dream" is slightly different.
