hey if you’re stuck being in church this sunday here’s a reminder that it’s completely free to think about gay sex and no one can tell. the government doesn’t want you to know this but jesus thinks it’s totally cool
THANKS FOR BEING FUNNIER THAN ME
wild and really disturbing how hard it is to get people to accept they dont ‘need’ to wear makeup to exist in public. like, you say that and the response will be “yeah! you dont need to have an hour long routine quick and sloppy makeup looks good too” and youre like, no, you actually dont need to wear it at all and the response is like “yeah! honestly all you need is foundation and eyeliner you dont need all that extra stuff” into infinity
eventually someone says ‘youre just jealous bc your wings are sloppy’
listen….. ladies…… my advice to you is, do not agonize over the specific percentages of your attraction to women, men, and variously presenting nonbinary people……… do not agonize over whether your attraction is “real” or “just comphet.”
become ruthlessly joy-sensitive. get in touch with your own experiences of embodied desire and pleasure, in particular moments as they arise, not as hypothetical states. find ways to safely experiment! you do not need a label to be fulfilled. just kiss people in real life and get off the internet.
yeah i’m a really private person but only when there’s consequences for being known which is why i post my innermost thoughts directly onto the most public parts of the internet but feel like i need to go into witness protection if people in real life point out my eye color
2021 be like: I’m thriving. I’m miserable. I am revisiting old hobbies. None of my hobbies are fun. I’m walking a lot. I have a vitamin D deficiency. The pandemic has lasted one month. The pandemic is over. The pandemic has lasted for 10 years. I am completely isolated. I talk to my friends constantly. I love working from home. Fourteen months have vanished from existence. I have a repetitive stress injury from working from home. I’m sick to death of working from home. Everyone is getting vaccinated. There’s three new variants that no-one is vaccinated from. Stay indoors. Start going out. Outdoor dining. Restart the economy. Don’t touch. Isn’t it great that we’re finally going back to normal?

before i watched the show i deadass thought hannibal was a dentist
he should have been. he could have gone on his crazy monologues and then been like “don’t you think?” while inspecting someone’s teeth and they’d be like mhmnhkhgdjfbhfjrh
Yeah so today I learned that a ton of people on the internet or at least on tumblr believe that “office workers” are some pampered and privileged upper class who have no right to complain about their “cozy” jobs because those jobs “only” constitute sitting indoors at a computer most of the time.
How about y’all look up the physical health problems, let alone mental ones, that come from cubicle work? A 10 hour work day scrambling to crunch numbers, manage accounts, repair code and slam together a college final’s worth of presentable information just to eat for another week is not the same as your 10 hours on discord arguing about the sex lives of cartoon characters.
I love how the OP blatantly ignores how a lot of the people who bitch about office workers’ supposedly cozy jobs…..are retail workers and the like who aren’t even allowed to SIT DOWN during their eight to ten hour shifts
This exactly. This is exactly my issue.
Actually, I didn’t “blatantly ignore” that the original criticisms might come from retail workers….I just didn’t think any of them did, because as someone whose only jobs were always in retail myself, I never would have thought my fellow retail workers would be so ignorant and childish as to trivialize the labor of desk workers over a bar as low as “having a chair.” If that’s the route you wanted to go then you and I wouldn’t have a right to complain about any job we’ve ever had as long as someone else in the world has to mine for coal or dive into sewage. These things are not a race.
Safe Work Australia is the “Australian government statutory body established in 2008 to develop national policy relating to WHS and workers’ compensation”. That’s all workers, blue and white collar. They class prolonged sitting as a WHS issue due to “Prolonged sitting [being] associated with a range of health problems including:
- musculoskeletal disorders
- cardiovascular disease
- poor mental health
- some cancers
- premature death.”
And that’s from something that people think is a perk of the job. SWA’s research lists sedentary work as contributing to a 300% increase in all-cause mortality. That’s not including the stress, the mental health toll, the prolonged hours (which in turn contribute to a range of issues, including musculoskeletal disorders and increased risk of stroke), the ever-decreasing free time to actually take care of your health, carpal tunnel, RSI, workplace injury, toxic exposure. There’s a range of health issues related to office work.
And that’s without going into the stupendous ways modern businesses are finding new, and resurrecting very old, ways to grind their workers into bone meal. Union busting, reinventing the company store, zero-privacy communal living, normalising 60+ hour weeks, and on and on.
The last thing anyone should do is look down on retail or manual labour, but that doesn’t require us to act like there aren’t real health risks in office work. I’ve worked both. Most of the office workers I know have. Both kinds of work have their risks, and they’re both getting fucked over by the capitalist class.
There’s a special kind of irony in seeing so many people shout “Workers of the World, Unite!” while telling fellow workers to go fuck themselves because “You make a few bucks an hour more than me, and you get to sit.”
Thank you, this is what I was talking about. Standing all day and sitting all day are both hell on the human body, they just affect some different parts of the body, and even if that wasn’t the case - even if sitting at a desk for 50-80% of your time on Earth did no harm at all - how fucked up are our standards if “being able to sit down” is being treated like its own miniature class divide? That’s like two prisoners getting into a brawl because one of them got an extra helping of slop.
Incredible stuff from tumblr.com
a question for other lesbians: would u prefer to be a lesbian housewife or a lesbian breadwinner?
neither , i choose to become a breadwife and my wife is a housewinner. she wins houses on gameshows and i fill them with bread.
If you haven’t seen the meme, it’s three photos of me showing my flapjacks to the judges and then a quote, I don’t remember saying this but apparently it’s how I talk, says “Started making it, had a breakdown, bon appétit”

Sometimes it’s like… what chance do you have when so much of the population is stupid. So many people… are so…. Very… stupid. All over the globe. Fucking idiots in the billions.
You ever see a picture of football fans and think…. Not one of you has ever had a coherent thought in your life…. Incredible….
