Before you start ranting about the minimum wage being to low and want it to be $15.
This should be funny but it’s too true to laugh at. Raising the minimum wage will destroy low wage employment (AKA entry level jobs).
Okay no that is absolutely not true?!
By raising the minimum wage you ensure that people can actually, you know, BUY THINGS and SUPPORT THE ECONOMY?
Okay I am literally too tired of this horseshit. You know how much McDonalds would have to raise their prices in order to actually pay a REASONABLE minimum wage?
A nickle. And not even on ALL of their food items- just SOME of them.
You assholes trying to keep the poor from trying to improve their situation make me fucking sick. Do you even KNOW HOW FUCKING CAPITALISM WORKS?
YOU PAY PEOPLE PROFIT FOR THEIR WORK SO THEY CAN BUY MORE THINGS AND PAY OTHERS PROFIT FOR THEIR GOODS AND SERVICES AND ITS A GODDAMN CYCLE. YOU DONT KEEP PEOPLE BARELY PAID ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO FEED OR CLOTHE OR HOUSE THEMSELVES BECAUSE THAT KILLS THE GODDAMN ECONOMY.
THE WORKING FORCE IS WHAT POWERS THE ECONOMY
NOT CORPORATE SHITFUCKS TRYING TO BRING US BACK TO 1800’S WORK CONDITIONS
THANK YOU AND GOOD FUCKING NIGHT.
Tumblr user artiestroke lays down the law
Also the touchscreen kiosks that McDonald’s Europe ordered back in 2011 shown in the picture were ordered to speed up taking orders so their paid employees could focus more on filling those orders, not as a method of replacing minimum wage workers
As a matter of fact, they projected back in 2011 that this would result in an INCREASE in jobs
And some fucking empathy for other people besides yourselves. Fuck you for thinking that having to pay a little extra for a cheeseburger is more important than someone being able to live off their wages.
this week on tumblr: everyone realizes how much of a badass neville was all along
and maybe finally realizing that Snape was a complete asshole not a misunderstood man
Neville Longbottom: He woulda done it in 4 books
Also pointing out: Snape was an asshole to Neville because of his obsession with Lilly. He was pissed off Voldemort chose Harry rather than Neville.
Snape tortured two young boys because of an obsession with a dead, married woman.
Also: a dead married woman who turned him down when she was alive
especially as combing makes perfectly good looking curls into a poofy mess and then people with straight hair have the audacity to give you “advice” on how to do your hair.
It annoys me that so many people are bothered by hair that “you can’t get a comb through” um last time I checked combed
I didn’t mean to post this, as my thought was not completed, but since it’s here I’ll finish my point.
Last time I checked combs were invented. Hair does not come naturally combed. Combs don’t automatically make hair pleasurable to look at. You can go your entire life without using a comb and have hair thats perfectly fine..
obliviosis said: Hey, so how do you guys like Portland? I'm doing a road trip down the west coast this summer, and I'll probably be busy checking out the amazing coastal landscapes, but maybe I'll find the time to stay in Portland for a night or two. What do you like most about the city? Are there any extraordinary/cool/famous things to do and see in Portland? What's your favorite thing about Portland? Hugs &Greetings!
We love Portland so far. My favorite thing about this region is how lush nature is. It’s incredible. People around here are a generally a bit nicer and less coarse than what I’m used to.
Produce and food in general is a little cheaper for us here too. And not to mention the absolutely infinite-seeming abundance of vegan eating options in this city. It’s overwhelming.
We haven’t done anything typical other than going to the Rose Garden, which we went to 5 years ago.
I definitely recommend it. I love it here and I’m glad I went through the trouble of moving.
I’m so very excited to go to oregon! i’ve heard the coast is supposed to be especially beautiful, but I think i’ll make a quick stop in portland, too, because people have told me that it has a quite alternative scene and relaxed atmosphere! so i’ll definitely try and see it on my way to (sigh) summer school.
I’m really happy that your move is working out so well for you. hope it stays that way! best wishes
The gender-reversed equivalent of a woman being raped is a man being raped. If you’re like Warren Farrell and you believe that the equivalent is anything else, you’re erasing men who have been raped.
Ironically, these are people who say they care about men’s rights and complain about feminists ignoring male rape victims.
when he puts it in and you can’t even tell
when your mama come home and don’t bring any food you asked for
when your relatives ask you what your future plans are
when you fail an exam you studied really hard for
when the team you beat in the 2010 World Cup final, beats you in 2014 by 5-1
Anonymous said: You're not interested in penises? I'm sorry but that's really fucking transphobic of you. Women can have penises too, you know.
people, attraction and romance are not the same thing! so no one is saying that if someone changed their genitalia, that they wouldn’t be loved by their partner. the question is: when you see someone naked, do you think “ugh genitalia, no thanks” or are you enthusiastic about seeing them naked? is your aversion for some genitalia something you feel every time, or could there be exceptions? etc. whether or not someone is aroused by someone else’s genitalia is not anyone’s business and it’s not something you can just police out of them.
Yes, women can have penises. I realise this. That doesn’t mean I have to be attracted to them. You can’t force people to be attracted to genitalia they are not attracted to, and I am not attracted to penises. Sorry.
I don’t get why this is an issue, since we all know sexual attraction towards someone’s body doesn’t always go along with respecting them as a person, and vice-versa. Willingness to sleep with someone isn’t the way you measure respect…
The issue is that you can’t tell who does and doesn’t have a dick when you meet them. Claiming you’re only attracted to people with a vulva/penis is transphobic. Saying you don’t find dicks sexually arousing probably isn’t transphobic in and of itself (especially for abuse survivors triggered by certain gentalia etc) but I’m cis so a trans person’s perspective would be great here!
I’m sorry but what? I can totally say I’m not attracted to penises. At no point did I say “i’m not attracted to people with penises” I was talking about the body part, hence I said “I am not attracted to penises”. Someone earlier asked me if penis size mattered to me and my response was that I am not interested in penises. Fuck’s sake. I don’t like penises. On men, on women, on non-binary people. I am not attracted to penises.
If my response to the penis size anon had been “I’m not into dudes” that would have been transphobic. But I realise that people who aren’t male can and do have penises, and I still don’t have any attraction to those penises.
there are literally neo nazis on this site and people choose to focus on someone who doesn’t like penises…smh
Transmisogyny followed by derailing. This entire post is a fucking shitshow.
"if you don’t find a person’s body part sexually attractive, you hate them"
wtf is this logic
^^^ tumblr logic
So challenging cis people is stupid “tumblr logic” not surprised
I love how whenever this conversation pops up fellow cis people love to erase the existence of intersex and post op trans girls to justify their “lack of attraction” to trans women but of course you’ll never see it discussed because they need an excuse to be transmisogynist. No one’s asking you to fuck a trans girl and honestly with that mentality I suggest you stay far away from them because you won’t cause them any else but harm. You should take the time to truly look at yourself and your mentality around gender and sex.
this post is transmisogyny in a nutshell, now I know who to unfollow
No one said that people aren’t/shouldn’t be attracted to trans women. The issue is that cis people are being accused of transphobia for saying “I’m not sexually interested in *PENISES*” This conversation would then exclude post-op trans women. Penises, on any gendered (or non-gendered) person, may not be sexually arousing to some people. I’m trying to understand why that would not be okay. “No one’s asking you to fuck a trans girl” yes, but why are people being asked to question why they like or dislike certain sex organs?
I’m bi, but I’d hope that if I only liked vaginas, or if I had a brown hair fetish, that that would be respected.From on cis person to another, let me tell you that it is indeed transphobic and intersexphobic to only be attracted to penis or vagina. See, it’s TOTALLY different from having a “brown hair fetish.” Firstly, one requires surgery to change and much more expensive. Let’s get that out the way. Second, if you are basing your attraction to someone based on what they have down there, you are tying to say you won’t love them if they decide to change or keep what they have. Wouldn’t you be upset if your mate fell in love with you then retracted it because your genitals aren’t “attractive?” You and other people are being reduced to just “pretty” or “ugly” genetalia. And what of people who have both? They may decide to keep both only to find their partner only wants some of them instead of all of them. That’s not al ALL how relationships work. And it’s getting to the point where even being attracted to a certain hair color and saying the rest doesn’t “do it for you” sounds shallow as fuck.
I am very shallow
These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’– Why it’s so hard for men to see misogyny (via ninjaruski)
Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.
