can we please appreciate their t-shirt though holy
[ID: A photo of Mayor Owen Hurcum, a person with bright green hair. They are smiling and holding up a white mug with a rainbow symbol on it. They are in a black t-shirt that reads, in white letters, THEY/THEM/THE MAYOR]
That pride symbol on the mug is a Welsh Love Spoon, that’s super cool.
someone accused her of having kept a CHILD SLAVE in a trunk in her university dorm room when she was 19 and also leading a sex trafficking ring. the girl who made the accusation kept adding progressively more and more absurd stuff to the callout every few hours until it was this elaborate wattpad story about how mitski had war criminal parents who altered the internet to disguise her real identity and how the accuser was secretly an informant for the FBI when she was 14 and got pistol whipped in an FBI fight and just more and more stuff. mitski herself had to step in and say it wasn’t true. it was literally qanon conspiracy theory hoax tier shit.
the accuser later admitted to having made it up during a psychotic episode, and people found her reddit where months earlier, she had made numerous posts about how she regularly has episodes where she, for days, believes untrue things about being in the center of conspiracy theories. it later came out that she had never even met mitski, and was nowhere near the concert where she originally claimed said child slave abduction happened. but some people still believe it to this day and accuse anyone who points out how absolutely absurd the whole thing was of being celebrity worshippers who hate abuse victims. it’s nuts
What are they gonna do about it? Send you to jail?
i can understand why the gut instinct to this would be “this is ridiculous” because it is, but this is a very intentional method of dehumanization and isolation that incarcerated people are subjected to. it denies them their agency and criminalizes natural urges/desires for no reason other than to make them as miserable as possible.
people who are caught masturbating in prison often do face increased violence both from their peers and from prison authorities. others are thrown into solitary confinment or have their sentences extended, if not having new sexual offender charges added depending on where they live.
like… please remember that prison is a human rights violation. joking about the conditions of it isn’t a good look.
No—okay the subversion is great and I love it but he’s still fat!!!!
The punchline wasn’t that he got skinny and ripped and the ex regretted it, it wasn’t even that he got skinny and ripped and started dating his trainer! He’s working out sure and maybe a little more “in shape” but the important thing is he’s fat and happy in the end.
Do you have any idea what seeing this did for a queer fat guy like me??? I’m so happy right now I’m genuinely just stunned.
shirts are a bi flag too
Guys oh my god, the guy stayed fat because he found a relationship with someone who cares for and supports him for who he is. He realized she was the problem and isnt in a toxic relationship anymore
At my last company, one day someone in accounting approached me at lunch and quietly told me I need to ask for a raise because I was way underpaid.
They gave me a number to shoot for. It was about twice than what I had been making at the time.
So I went online, did some research, found some figures backing up my claim, put it all together and went to my boss.
I got what I asked for.
If it hadn’t been for that person in accounting telling me I was way underpaid, I’d have never known. I went from barely scraping by to being able to have a savings account and getting all my debts paid thanks to them.
You should at least check sites like salary.com to start the process of seeing what you should be making.
Because this is crucially important
Except for the fact that 90% of the time you are under contract not to talk about your salary otherwise the company can sue you. Every job I’ve had I’ve had to sign that I won’t discuss my pay with other employees otherwise my employment is terminated and the company will take legal action.
If you scrolled right past this - GO THE FUCK BACK UP - this is a huge PSA
jfc I’ll be having some words with some folks
I got a raise today and my boss made it super-clear it was “confidential” and I “couldn’t talk to anyone about it.”
So of course, this post popped up just in time to remind me to tell you all that heavy resignations and discussion of unionization got my crew bumped to $13/hr (85 cents over state minimum) and managers to $15/hr.
Unionize, learn your rights, and get your money, honey.
If you’re in a place, mentally or physically, where you only have the spoons to take care of yourself in one way, I HIGHLY recommend taking care of your teeth.
Acne goes away. You can always start working out later. Stink is easily fixed with a single shower. Hair can be brushed and cut.
Issues with teeth are expensive, painful, and overall suck. Your teeth health can have an impact on other things, too, like jaw issues.
If you’re faced with the choice of either taking a shower or brushing your teeth, I highly recommend brushing your teeth. Whatever tools help you to do that, disposable floss picks/toothbrushes, kids fun-flavored toothpaste, soft bristled brushes, anything is better than nothing.
This take is pissing me off so Im going to just rant about it to get it out of my system.
Elon Musk’s SNL bits weren’t unfunny because he’s autistic, they were unfunny because he’s an out of touch conservative billionaire with a cult of personality who panders to online nerd communities who are obsessed with 4chan, cryptocurrency, and saying slurs as often as possible. Every time this man says a single thing it’s incredibly clear he has no idea what life is like for the average person and has been spoonfed by others his entire life. He didn’t start tesla, he bought it. He’s more of a detriment to SpaceX than a positive. He’s rich because mommy and daddy being racists in apartheid South Africa. He owns a fucking diamond mine. He calls literal heroes pedophiles for daring to criticize his stupid plans thatd kill innocents. His companies violate almost every OSHA standard (and thats just the shit in the USA) and his space company rains dangerous shit all over American cities.
People don’t hate Elon Musk because he’s autistic. People hate Elon Musk because he’s a Captain Planet villain.
And, trying to level that disgust towards him as disgust towards autistic people is so extremely ableist. Elon Musk getting made fun of for being terrible at comedy and being an unrelatable billionaire is not the same as autistic people getting made fun of for not being able to communicate ideas.
Good morning to everyone who is going to troll an oil company today 😇
The goal of bullying Big Oil companies over their climate tweets isn’t just to educate people about corporate hypocrisy. It’s to unite activists around the goal of taking away their social license to operate.
Oil companies could remedy this threat by winding down their fossil fuel operations, and investing heavily in renewable energy. But for the most part, they’ve chosen to combat public anger over climate change by investing in strategic communication.This consistent choice of empty climate words over meaningful climate action is why several Shell executives quit the company this week—and it’s why Heglar says social media call-outs are increasingly powerful.
i think it’s really amazing how total strangers who have nothing in common but their shared love of a work of fiction will come together across distances and dedicate their time and energy working collaboratively to build an extensive, richly detailed fanon that completely fucking sucks
you guys are so committed to being bad at interpreting things you’ll just straight up decide this post means the opposite of what i wrote and reblog it anyway
Shoutouts to this guy for being right yet only being visible in the notes next to a goon who posted this cap next to a No Fun Allowed sign and completely missed the point of both what they and the original post was saying
I have literally seen so much characterization and nuance(and you know, actual narrative meaning) sanded off of characters so that they can fit into the generic fandom mould for incorrect quotes or shipping art or fics, ending up as carbon copies of every other fandom’s sanded-down characters in the process
If your partner feels threatened when you want alone time: RUN.
This applies to you boys too- if your girlfriend won’t let you hang out with your friends, RUN
No matter what gender you or your partner are, if they refuse to let you spend any time with your friends that’s a big sign of danger.
GUESS WHAT MY EX BELIEVED 🙃🙃🙃
Last time I reblogged this I lost ten followers, someone I liked blocked me, and I got hate mail in my inbox for several days. Let’s see what happens this time.
Abuse begins with insecurity
My ex wouldn’t even accept a ride from my friend who offered to drive us home in the pouring Orlando rain and instead forced us to walk 12 minutes in the rain, soaking my only pair of work shoes and giving me a cold. FUCKING RED FLAGS
tumblr is crazy bc white ppl will come on here and be like “a black person made fun of me when I was 10 which indirectly caused my body dysmorphic disorder and now 15 years later I’m still triggered by brown people but I’m not racist I swear. also if I get hate for this my anxiety will flare up and I’ll have a panic attack so please don’t”
if you find yourself in a situation like this, don’t panic. there are people who can, and will, help you <3
[video ID: a pale skinned person with blue hair and a lip ring is shown from the waist up, speaking into the camera. transcript (some of the captions on the video are not spoken, so those are added in parentheses):
“I don’t know who needs to hear this today but there is no such thing as a “leaked nude”! (obvs don’t mean colloquially) 1. if your nude is behind a paywall like onlyfans, it is: copyright infringement and onlyfans will fight for you. 2. if your nude was taken or sent in private, that is: revenge porn, and as of 2019, is illegal in most states and countries where social media is prominent.
in 2019 one of my girls came to me and said that her ex was threatening to leak her nudes. she played me his voicemail and I fucking laughed. homeboy left his full name and threat on a recorded message.
usually I’m not very supportive of the police if that’s not obvious (I made this decision based on the people involved and didn’t put anyone in danger) but in this situation I told her to call. she filed completely over the phone, never met with an officer and he never saw her face (she also said that he didn’t make any remarks or judgements on her which was important to her). that officer called the dumbass and told him that he was facing a felony in his state. basically, the dumbass wet himself and never contacted her again.
but if you don’t want to go that route you can always get a lawyer involved (to inform and advocate for you). I know even that sounds like “how can I do this?” but for my she’s, gays, & theys out there: if you are in an abusive situation or they’re committing crimes against you, some lawyers in your city will work for free.” end ID/transcript]
so in case you missed it, today twitter started rolling out a “tip” system (why) and it goes through paypal i guess, and when you pay someone it literally doxxes you by giving them your full name and shipping address. just in case you were thinking only tumblr staff could screw a new feature this badly
