The fantasy world of erasing all status hierarchies is dystopian. You’d have to erase our very humanity.

Systemic oppression exists and its eradication is a cause worth championing. That being said, we are all dealt different cards and genetic diversity is a huge part of what makes us collectively beautiful. Let’s not confuse the two and give credence to the proposition of “banning” recognition of people’s inborn physical characteristics (that’s my best guess for your reference to “it”) in the name of a “level playing field”. The irony in that proposition would be hilarious if it weren’t so sinister.

My experience has been different than yours.

Another perspective to consider:

Mama, writer, lover, fighter — I wear my heart on my sleeve because my pants pockets are too small.
