Американская нищета бывает и такой


Years ago, some feminist on the internet told me I was "Privileged."

"THE FUCK!?!?" I said.

I came from the kind of Poor that people don't want to believe still exists in this country. Have you ever spent a frigid northern Illinois winter without heat or running water? I have. At twelve years old, were you making ramen noodles in a coffee maker with water you fetched from a public bathroom? I was. Have you ever lived in a camper year round and used a random relative's apartment as your mailing address? We did. Did you attend so many different elementary schools that you can only remember a quarter of their names? Welcome to my childhood.
Отсюда

Не могу представить зиму в Иллинойсе без обогрева и даже питьевой воды. Это... это за гранью добра и зла. Там зимой легко -20 бывает
