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
So yeah dommypls and americas-liberty, learn economics.

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 is how toxic capitalism is. People think that cheap hamburgers are more important than human lives and well being. 
We live in a culture that commodifies FOOD, WATER, HOUSING, and HEALTH CARE, and that SCOFFS at the idea that everyone should be able to actually afford all of those things even if they are employed. 
We have a system where people think it is ABSURD to suggest that EVERYONE should be able to EAT.

We don’t need European fairy tales retold with dark-skinned characters

We need non-European fairy tales being told

Race-bending isn’t the answer here

Realizing that there are children who have non-European heritages and cultures who need their own stories being given representation is the answer

So apparently in my sister’s class, there was a trans girl that had been on the cheerleading squad for a while. When she came out, the other girls on the squad made the agreement that whatever boy made fun of her would never get a date. And if you think that’s not the most metal girl alliance ever, you can sit down.

Wow, 500 notes

Girls protecting girls.

This is awesome

No but what if when Razer gets the blue ring he decides to keep them both and he turns into a walking police siren light thing.
There’s no way Aya won’t find me now.

I’m not super into the show but I love love love the diversity of these chicks and I hope it has a large, powerful, and positive impact on women in animation.

Today I let one of the girls at my internship paint my nails. A few girls exclaimed, “that’s weird!” and one boy timidly asked, “are you actually letting her paint your nails?” I told them that boys are allowed to paint their nails and asked them who told them they couldn’t? None of them had an answer. And one-by-one the boys came over to the nail painting station and started doing their own nails, and each others nails, and one boy even got really excited and asked if he could do my other hand and it was just a really cool thing to see.  When the parents came to pick up the kids, the boy who had enthusiastically painted my nails, started scraping off his nail polish. I asked him why he was doing that an he said that one time he wore his sister’s nail polish and his dad gave him a “whoopin’”. And then, in the meekest voice I’ve very heard, he whispers, “but next time I come to [the program], I think I’ll just paint them again, anyways… I think sometimes parents can be wrong about stuff too.” I half-smiled and whispered back, “I think you might be right.” And helped him take the rest off with nail polish remover.
And that was the coolest moment of my day.


And you are definitely a great person

whoneedsfeminism:

I need feminism because women still aren’t included in cycling grand tours like the Tour de France. 
Attempts to include females generally consist of separate, smaller stage races such as the Tour de France Feminin, which was cancelled in 2009. Reasons against including women range from women having less endurance (bullsh!t), breaking 100 years of tradition, and a lack of sponsorship interest (which demonstrates a problem in itself). 
This year the race organisers have developed La Course, a one day women’s race, which is being praised as “game changing” and “revolutionary”.
It’s time for professional cycling to leave the dark ages, stop throwing smaller, lesser races at us like a bone to a dog, and include women in the full length Tour, even if it is with a separate General Classification.

to those of you commenting “it would make more sense if bisexuality was on a dimmer switch~~” on my light switch post

this is a brief reminder that bisexuality doesn’t exist in the “gray space” between heterosexuality and homosexuality. it is an identity in it’s own right.
