Sarah: All the giggling the entire weekend
Adam: The answer is no lol

Last night/this morning, depending on what timezone you're using, Adam brought up Jordan Peterson, so then I talked to Ben about Jordan Peterson. Adam wants to be the anti-Jordan Peterson and I'm completely in favour of this. Ben and I also talked about privilege and how some people don't recognise privilege because they've studied and worked too hard all their lives, and they want to attribute all the things they've earned to the sheer hard work they've put in, but like. Not acknowledging privilege is so silly, like if you think I don't earn as much as you do because I don't hustle as hard as any other person, when I'm at work practically every weekend, if you think I haven't achieved as much success because I'm lazy as opposed to because my family could not afford as many opportunities as other families could, I mean, that's a different kind of blindness.
