My name is Christine, and I get food stamps. I’ve had to apply off and on over the past 18 years, in order to make sure my family was fed. I don’t feel the least bit ashamed of myself for this, but apparently some people think I should.

Some people think I and people like me are lazy.

Or that we’re taking advantage of other (smarter, harder-working) people.
