Don’t lecture people about the choices they’ve made if all the options they had were shitty.

Between the editorial this past weekend in my local paper complaining about homeless people camping on our town common, to the series on The Daily this week about Roe v. Wade, I’m hearing a bunch of talk about how people need to take responsibility for the choices they have made.

Here’s the thing. Before you come at me about how people should have made better choices before they found themselves in their current crummy situation, you need to do some real thinking about how we build a society that gives people better choices.
