So stop working at mcdonalds and do something with your life.
Sure! I’ll just reach into my ass and pull out a job! Or, how about I go down to jobland, where jobs grow on jobbies!
Strap on your job helmet and get in the job cannon
…if everyone “stopped working at mcdonalds and did something with their life”, you do realize the entire fast food industry would collapse, right? And if we extend that premise out to other low-wage/low-prestige jobs, society itself would pretty much grind to a halt.
You love to talk shit about retail and food service workers, but who makes your burger and sells you your clothes? Go ahead. Try doing without any labor from someone employed in a low-wage/low-prestige service industry job for a few days. I’ll wait. Good luck.
NEW RULE: If you think working minimum wage jobs is “not doing something with your life” and you look down on the people working those jobs, you’re not allowed to patronize those jobs ANYMORE. No fast food for you! No retail, no coffee shops!
No theaters and no amusement parks either!
Say goodbye to your morning cup of coffee bitches
No places that require the use of a janitorial staff.
That means no school, no public shopping place of any kind, no universities, no airports or train or bus stations.
You can’t call 911 because the operator makes minimum wage. Also sucks to be you if you’re drowning because life guards are minimum wage workers too.
research something for months or even years and you’ll be told you’re not qualified to self-diagnose, despite knowing more about your specific conditions than your average therapist
mention you have a trigger and suddenly those same people become experts in exposure therapy without any prior research or consent
men: rape jokes hahaha! beating women haha! lol make me a sandwich whore! put on makeup fugly! hahaha!
women: those aren’t funny.
men: lighten up, it’s a joke wow must be on her period women are so emotional lol
women: i drink the tears of men, haha!
men: hOW DARE YOU. HOW DARE YOU PROMOTE THE SUFFERING OF US MEN? DO YOU KNOW WHAT WE HAVE DONE FOR YOU? YOU WOULD BE NOTHING WITHOUT US. THATS NOT FUNNY AT ALL
I find it interesting how society doesn’t care when the media sexualizes women, when men sexualize women, or when school and the government sexualize women. But the second a woman is in control, and sexualizes herself willingly, it’s wrong and disgusting.
Bop it, Twist it, Pull it, Spin it, Flick it.

One of the things that is really notable about Moscow and yet not many people outside Russia know about, is how gorgeous the Moscow metro is.
These photos? That’s what the metro stations look like.
They’re called the “People’s palaces of Moscow” or else “Underground palaces,” and they were built during the Soviet era on the Communist idea that art and beauty should belong to the people rather than only being available in the houses of nobles.
These photos show just some of the metro’s attractions. There are many more mosaics, statues, etc, placed throughout.
And the metro is always this clean.
In addition to being beautiful, it is incredibly functional. It gets you pretty much everywhere in Moscow, and the trains run at intervals of every three minutes or less. At peak times, they run every 90 seconds. You never have to worry about missing a train, because the next one will come almost immediately.
Not always of course. In the late evening or early morning hours, you may have to wait as long as five whole minutes for a train. They’re also super easy to navigate.
We Russians are pretty proud of our metro system.
Anonymous said: Feminists claim they want equality but what they really want is power without responsibility. They desire both male and female privilege consolidated into one, thus upsetting the gender balance. They want the privileges of being women (privilege such as being economically provided for, getting opportunities based on their beauty and protection from physical harm by others) as well as male privilege (authority, respect for having a career, to not be judged so harshly based on appearance etc).
must have missed out on all that female privilege damn
Can smell the Cheetos from here
actually im gonna go through this point by point
●being economically provided for.
women have fully entered the labour market. it is neither liberation to stay at home and do unpaid domestic labour and be fully financially controlled by a man, nor is wage labour liberating. im a full time student, a zero hour contract waitress/kitchen staff and a sex worker. i am not economically provided for.
●gaining things for our beauty.
like what exactly? someone might hire us because they like how we look, but sexual harassment in the workplace is not a privilege.
●protection from harm from others.
really? so when i was raped by a man that was me gaining protection from others? my abusive father gets me protection? being harassed in the street gets me protection instead of feigning ignorance? please. get a grip.
"getting opportunities based on our beauty" is actually a fucking burden on women. we’re judged on our appearance and we’re expected to provide a relatively consistent and normative appearance to prospective bosses (which tbh includes boyfriends under heteropatriarchy). failing to do this is grounds for discipline or destitution. it’s also a force that affects specific women in far more violent ways than others.
i think the shitboys who talk about that honestly know that it takes work and money to be men’s idea of beautiful and know that it’s essentially an unpaid job and resent it anyway because it makes them angry we’re occasionally paid for it instead of just doing it for their benefit
On some real stuff though! Yes women in Delhi are saying what NEEDS to be said!

- Anonymous said:Having said not embracing any norm is the plethora of comments from /actual women of color/ (including myself) who are standing up and saying - this is not naturally who we are.. It is sexualising us again and sexualising certain body parts... You are, very typically, speaking on behalf of those who not wish to be spoken for. It's not about "fat" , it's about butts. It's not even really about "thick" as nobody in that video is thick. So why is she demeaning herself and her dancers ??

Okay. Taking a self-care break from Ferguson stuff. Working on the FAQ is stressing me out. It’s basically going back over everything again.
