Update: i believe in owning up to my mistakes; i posted a response to the KM thread making a tasteless comparison with Solomon Northrop in 12 Years A Slave. My point (which I still think is valid) is that KM doesn't fit the paradigm of a "poor person" because she wasn't born into poverty, just as Northrup was not born into slavery. However, it's trivializing both poverty and slavery to make a simple comparison. Therefore, I redacted the comment. It was a bad comment and i regret it. I'm sorry for the comparison.
