when people say that raising the minimum wage will hurt workers because of layoffs or inflation they’re really just admiting that capitalism is structurally unable to provide an adequate standard of living for the working class

It makes me fucking crazy that some people literally have to try to make it on minimum wage. I make well above and I still end up working 50 hours a week to live comfortably. It also makes me crazy that any job where you hope to make above “just enough” requires that you shell out at least six grand a year to go to school without recognizing that people in school don’t have enough time to work the amount of hours required to fulfill basic human needs! I was so fed up with feeling guilty every time I bought something remotely “nice” aka an $8 sandwich because, let’s be real, I honestly deserve all the $8 sandwiches I want. I cannot express how tired I am of old people asking me if I am in school and/or telling me I can do better than I am doing without bothering to recognize that laziness isn’t the only reason for financial struggles or a lack of a degree. I could go on about this for hours.

When I was 16, people told me, “you’ll get it when you’re older.”When I was 16, people told me, “just wait until you get into the real world.” When I was 16, people told me, “you’re just 15,” and I would say, “yo, I just turned 16,” and then they dismissed me.

When I was 16, unsurprisingly, I…

Yo warning if you are triggered by slurs, specifically trans slurs, and general shittiness, do not read further.

So, I have been at my current job for probably two months now and everything has been pretty good as far as starting out at new jobs go. All the training was a pain in the ass but I did it and I’m doing well and I feel accomplished and like I work very hard because I do. So, yeah, not to many complaints about the job itself, however, there is a trans man who works for the company that probably started not too long before I did and I have never formally met him but oh my god you’d think I would have by how much people talk. I have heard the term “she-man” on multiple occasions from multiple people and it is infuriating. Every single person in the goddamn company is absolutely obsessed with the personal business of this guy and I can only deflect and change the subject so much before I swear to god I am going to blow. Come to think of it, I don’t even know for sure that this person identifies as a man, I’m just taking other people’s fucked up twisted reactions and assuming! Who knows! Now I’m the asshole!

World Market is one of my most visited stores, but god damn their “Halloween” section this year is making me so mad.

Also, real question. What do you do when you have a friend that does many appropriative things but you’re not close enough to straight up tell them? I don’t think this person even understands what appropriation is or has probably heard the word before, so it’s not like I could casually mention it but it also signals to me that maybe with some information they would stop?

It’s pretty bad though, like, a huge tattoo of a dream catcher, another tattoo of a mandala, and many vaguely Indian “inspired” headbands. And all of this shit happened in the past few months since I’ve seen them. I don’t even know, man. Is this the point of no return? I’d be anxious to go in public next to someone sporting such things. I don’t know where the line is here.

POP POP POP POP POP

Forever defending the complexity of pop music and laughing at people who spend all their time listening to “real artists”. To not see the misogyny embedded in our view of pop music is to not understand misogyny. This is something I firmly stand behind and will firmly stand behind until the day I die in a fiery,  glittery explosion of pop wrath. Current popular artists (specifically female artists) are not silly, absentminded girls singing about crushes (usually), but strong and powerful individuals who use their vulnerable life experiences masked as a song about the club or calling you maybe to make it easier to swallow not just for the ignorant public but also for their own sake because living in a world that forces you to be simultaneously chipper and complex is ridiculous and impossible and nothing can convince me that they are anything but incredible, talented warriors.

BREAKING: Ferguson Police Chief Admits Mike Brown Shooting Not Related To Robbery

socialismartnature:

The case around Mike Brown’s killing by a Ferguson police officer is only getting murkier.

After releasing images from a gas station robbery to the press Friday morning with the suggestion Mike Brown was pictured in them, the Ferguson police department is now backtracking. In a second press conference hours later, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson admitted that Brown’s shooting was unrelated to the incident.

Jackson told reporters that Brown and a friend were in fact stopped, “because they were walking down the middle of the street blocking traffic.”

He also admitted that Darren Wilson, the officer who killed Brown, didn’t suspect Brown at the time that he stopped him.

When Chief Jackson was asked by reporters why his department chose to release the robbery tape if it was unrelated to the shooting, he replied that he had to because “the media asked for it.”

The inspiration for the hair and makeup at Prada S/S 2013 has a very interesting inspiration, none other than infamous serial killer, Aileen Wuornos. “Her story especially her hair and natural raw disheveled look has been very inspirational to me this season,” said Miuccia Prada.

ACTUAL LADY VENGEANCE LOOKS

I lost my ipod for a few weeks and have been actually pretty impressed at the radio lately. Between Mary Lambert, Bebe Rexha and that new Jason Derulo song, I’ve really been jammin. I’m sorry about the new Jason Derulo song, but also, eh, am I?

Conspiracies are definitely a white boy culture thing because women and poc don’t have to imagine an elaborate scenario in which the government fucks us over.
