here’s my hot take
you forgot someone.
It’s an extremely popular opinion among middle and upper class white people.
Also, aside from this completely uneducated reasoning as to why minimum wage was created…
I can guarantee that there are tens of thousands of teenagers who have to pay bills and help support their families or are the only financial supporter to their family.
not to mention, if minimum wage was meant solely for high school students how would the business survive when students are in school?? are they only supposed to be open on the weekend? this “unpopular opinion” makes no sense.
Unpopular fact: in the 70s a minimum wage worker could pay for college with a summer job.
Unpopular fact: minimum wage was conceived to be the minimum amount of money a person would need to support themselves and their families when working 40 hours per week.
Unpopular fact: minimum wage was created because working men and women in this nation fought–figuratively in the negotiating room and literally in the streets–for a fair working wage, with sweat and blood and tears and death.
Unpopular fact: military service personnel are not the only people who have fought and died for your rights as American: labor leaders and common workers laid down their lives so that you could have a 40 hour work week instead of 80 hours; so you could have a 2 day weekend instead of none; so you could have lunch and bathroom breaks instead of going hungry and shitting your pants,; so you could have a three day weekend in September.
Capitalism would NEVER dole out basic human decency without literal human sacrifice.
Unpopular opinion: if minimum wage is meant for kids, it should be illegal to pay adults minimum wage.
hey don’t let the media tell you this election is already decided. it’s exactly what they said in 2016 and we all remember how THAT worked out. 2020 could be a knife’s edge election, and 18-24 year olds could easily be the deciding voice. please register to vote. think about the people that might not survive another four years of this.

reminds me of this commission i once did
does tony the tiger have a back story
right i’m reading tony the tiger’s wiki bio, this has nothing to do w/ tumblr commissioning me to write a grinch x tony fanfic
I hate that I’m looking forward to this
Growing up in a large Italian-American-Tiger family, Tony always thought he would one day have a family of his own. He imagined there would be a Mrs. Tony and a Tony Jr., a few younger children running around, and of course his adored mother Mama Tony herself, altogether in one house full of laughter and warmth. And for awhile, he almost had just that.
Twenty years later, Tony has been divorced longer than he was married. Middle-aged and disillusioned with himself, he still can’t help clinging to the idea of the life he might have had–before his divorce, before his sports injury, before all the inevitable disappointments of time.
Which is perhaps why, when a grouchy ex-boyfriend calls to say he’s moving house–and tossing the precious sports memorabilia Tony left behind–Tony finds himself buying a one-way ticket to Mount Crumpit.

In the near future, you are making dinner because you are about to meet your girlfriend’s dad for the first time. All you have in the kitchen is cooked frozen steaks. In walks your girlfriend and her dad, Gordon Ramsey.
This isn’t a prompt, this a fully finished horror story
Warning for needles, links to disturbing images
The fanartist in question is Avimedes, a Taiwanese fanartist who draws primarily for Undertale. On May 10th she posted on her Plurk (warning for images with blood, needles) that she was given cookies as a gift; she ate one and a needle pierced her tongue.
Here is a translation of her post:
Warning, these photos contain a lot of blood.
I’m very sorry that I haven’t had a chance to say my thanks (for the convention?) and I am venting. But I received a needle in my dessert gift from the convention. Thank you, I have one more piercing now.
I am not trying to ask for comfort, I am only trying to tell everyone how serious is this matter, so do not comfort me.
This matter is unable to be investigated and hopeless to be investigated. This matter has made me lost of trust towards something, but from today onwards, I will not be accepting any more handmade food by others.
Any more follow up and notice will be posted(if there’s any), thank you for your attention.
From discussion (Twitter, Reddit) it seems likely that she was given these cookies because she draws Sans/Frisk art, and a “fan” decided that drawing a ship they didn’t like was worthy of attempted murder. Had Avimedes swallowed the needle it could have done considerable and possibly irreparable internal damage.
So I will say this again: DO NOT HARM REAL PEOPLE OVER FICTIONAL ENTITIES. I don’t care what the content is. These purity crusades need to STOP. The amount of vitriol and anger that the anti-shipping circles not only accept but encourage is dangerous, unhealthy, and unless stopped will lead to more people being hurt. There’s already been at least one incident of an artist being harassed into a suicide attempt.
Your moral indignation/righteous anger/upset feelings DO NOT justify the injury or death of other people. You have every right to protect yourself from viewing objectionable content, but that right stops far, far short of hurting other people. Going on these crusades DOES NOT HELP against the sort of issues that are purportedly being championed; it only causes more harm. We need to break away from this mindset, from purity culture, before someone is permanently injured or dies.
FICTION =/= REALITY
STOP HURTING PEOPLE
Things like this makes me loose faith in humanity
Hall of Shame
rational people: hey maybe don’t literally attempt murder on someone over shipping drama that’s one of the least okay things you could do with your free time
slime mold at a keyboard: i mean that’s debatable but it really depends on the ship
