19. I've referred to myself and my peers as working class for some time now. Should be said with pride

Really irritates my conservative TP father when I do. He was always constantly trying to preach to me to make me an uber capitalist always trying to win win win in the big rat race. I was never interested in any of that, and the fact that I'm blue collar by choice ( and pro union ) really smokes him.

He thinks the term "working class" is "left wing"; his favorite canard to try to discredit anything he doesn't like. Fuck that noise: The working class is the engine room of the country.
