HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

Holy schnikes.

Now let’s just unpack who is “conventionally attractive”

George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).

An asexual and pansexual become room-mates and have wacky adventures

The show is called ‘All or Nothing’

Plot twist: the asexual is really super outgoing and is a huge flirt while the pansexual is extremely socially awkward and has trouble ordering coffee let alone getting a date.

1.) The girl practiced safe sex and used condoms. SMART. AS. FUCK.
2.) I’ve seen this reblogged with notes calling her a “whore” and a “skank”. Fuck that noise. Over half the girls on tumblr will, or have, sucked the dick of a guy they just met, only hung out with a few times, or barely know, and then stress because he hasn’t called them back or he’s treating them like shit. Meanwhile the same girls go to work at a minimum wage job where they don’t even make $920 in 3 months, much less a day. 
Good for this chick. She’s on her hustle and I ain’t mad at her. Make that money, girl!

you go girl
suck them dicks
achieve your dreams

are we going to ignore that these guys were willing to pay $460 just to have pleasure? i might not know a lot about how this business goes down but dayum she must have done a good job

Ally is a title bestowed, not a title claimed. If someone says you’re hurting them, and you reply, “but I’m an ally” then you’re not an ally. You’re an abuser.

Here is a short list of a few of the hundreds of examples of the media intentionally manipulating the public to support Israel’s recent offensive against Palestinians
July 24, 2014

Please reblog or message with additions as you see/think of them and I will edit with the additions. I am sure we can create quite a large list of examples.

heteronormativity for dummies or, “why homophobes aren’t the only problem”

For example, my parents are very supportive of me and aren’t homophobes; however, they still have improvements to be made. I am out to everybody I know, with the exception of my younger siblings, because my parents have forbidden me to tell them. “They won’t understand,” they say. When I was dating a guy we weren’t allowed to be affectionate, however innocently, in front of my siblings. Nothing. And we couldn’t cuddle in my room if my siblings were up for fear that they might see. My parents said it was just inappropriate behavior in general, and that it wasn’t “a sexuality thing”. However, when I was dating a girl she and I were allowed to nap together, in my bed, under the covers, regularly. We held hands and stuff in front of my siblings. She was even allowed to stay the night in my room with me once. So, yes, straight people, however well intentioned they may be toward the queer community, contribute to harmful heteronormativity.

everything on his channel is so good.

also i love his violins.

one day in the far off future i hope to be this good. 

but actually…

that’s like a handful of papers ranging from 12 to 29 pages each that i need to go through on topics i can’t even remember since most of them were for religion classes first and second year… even my writing 20/101 class was called ‘jesus and gender’… ugh. so much old shit to trudge through. 

maybe i should skip this for now and just start working on personal statements?…

Minimum wage should be linked to the poverty level. 

This is basic economic fact.

A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses. That major multinational corporations can be “successful” while failing to meet a basic operating expense is only possible because We The People pick up their greedy/lazy slack through taxes and charity. 

And yet somehow it’s everybody else who’s a moocher and a looter…

And this corrosive greed is a big part of what’s slowly poisoning the U.S. economy. Money being hoarded at the top and put in “safe” investments and bank accounts is money that does nothing for no one. It’s just an elaborate means of keeping score. Money put into the hands of the workers does what money is meant to do: it circulates. It gets spent. The same dollar will go through dozens of sets of hands, touching dozens of lives, feeding dozens of people and sparking profits for dozens of businesses. The same dollar, in the hands of the rich, will generally do… nothing. It won’t create jobs. It won’t fund innovations. It won’t start businesses.

Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for workers. Less than 3% of the wealthy are actually entrepreneurs (people who risk their money on business ventures that create jobs). 

But 100% of the working class spends their money. That money creates jobs. That money fuels innovations. That money becomes profits. That money keeps the economy ticking.

We have been lied to about who are the parasites and who are the drivers of the economy. We have largely accepted a view of money as a means of keeping score and the economy as something that must have winners and losers, rather than money being a proxy for barter and an economy being a way to divide the labor of society and distribute the load of living

#poverty #classism

"A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses."

"Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for the workers."
