    homeless? it’s a post-apocalyptic wasteland…
    that’s like calling me yachtless…
    or mansionless…
    not owning something is not a definition or description of a person

      He does have a home. For most of his life, he’s been chilling in a hole in the ground.

      Not owning something? sure, that’s not necessarily the best way to define someone. especially in a post apocalyptic wasteland.

      But there are certain benchmark things that are consequential enough to define someone. Not having reliable access to shelter is pretty descriptive of a person’s situation.

      I don’t think you could argue that the only difference between someone who owns their own functional and crewed yacht - and a person who is homeless, is personal preference/taste. Regardless of an apocalypse.

      But, I wouldn’t expect the mansionless to understand the nuances of owning things so don’t worry about it too much /s

      Honestly, I’m loving the slur mansionless. Thank you for this

      I’m pretty sure one of the definitions of homeless is to not owning a home. The tactless and mansionless kind of has a word too: pennyless 😅
