White privilege is a thing.

What goes on in a woman's uterus is none of your fucking business.

Equal rights for others does not mean less rights for you. It's not pie.

When a person dies, their property receives a step up in basis, eliminating any capital gains tax for the value growth during the deceased's life. This means in an uncertain world you can't even count on taxes 'n death.
