Or those supermarket bits where they get to the checkout and don’t know they couldn’t afford most of their cart. A poor person knows exactly what they could afford to buy and what needs to prioritize. At most, you’d get a ‘oh, I thought this was on discount/buy one get one, I can’t afford the full price’.
This is actually a phenomenon of the temporarily embarrassed middle class, or people raised in the middle class who are now poor but haven’t been that way for long. College students who have recently moved out of their parents’ house, people who have just lost a job, people who are freelancers or contractors and get large amounts of money at irregular intervals.
Getting a little bit tired of posts that are like “adhd is only a disorder because of capitalism” as if it’s mr monopoly man’s fault that i struggle to stay committed to artistic projects i undertook personally for myself and that I enjoy, have trouble regulating my emotions, and procrastinate on eating and going to the bathroom.
I get what they are trying to say, but even if capitalism didn’t exist I would still want to have things like “the motivation to clean my living space and the ability to actually notice that it’s dirty.” I know this is part of the misperception of adhd, but adhd doesn’t just affect academics and work. It affects EVERYTHING, including your personal goals and your own basic needs
4/5 of these bitches ain’t got problems disorders???
bisexual women shouldn’t have to downplay the intensity of our attraction to men and bisexual women shouldn’t have to add a disclaimer about how we don’t actually like, like men and bisexual women shouldn’t have to assure anyone that we like women more, or that we like men but we only love women, or that we would never be with a man voluntarily, yadda yadda yadda…. like what started as a joke about preferring women either because of a shared experience or because of the euphoria of realizing we could be attracted to women has turned into a game to convince everyone that we’re not like those bisexuals. and the thing is!! a couple years ago we recognized this as a real issue but now we seem to have agreed that it’s nbd because men suck anyways or whatever………. whatever.
and? when y'all say shit about how bisexual women don’t have to center our lives around men because we can just be with women you’re assuming our attraction and interaction with men is “centering our lives around them” or catering to them or performing femininity for them and it’s ridiculous. bisexual women can fuck and date and marry men and it still doesn’t mean we’re centering our lives around them or sacrificing our values or betraying our communities to be with them. the audacity.
everytime I remember that lesbian couple that have a marble statue of the two of them embracing and sleeping on a bed together over where their graves will be because the artists didn’t believe they would be able to be married before they died, so what they couldn’t have in life they could have in death, I fucking breakdown
memorial to a marriage; patricia cronin“on july 24th, 2011- the first day that same sex marriage was legal in new york state, particia cronin and deborah kass got married. that same year the marble ‘memorial to a marriage’ was replaced with a bronze version. rainwater pools in the space between their two sculpted bodies, and falling leaves catch on the metal in the autumn. the two women sleep peacefully through snow and ice, and the scorching days of summer. over time the hands of cemetery visitors will wear down the bronze, burnishing it into a smooth shine. one day this will mark the final resting place of the two women. and someday people will have to remember that there was a time, long ago, when this was a memorial to a marriage that two women never thought they’d have.”
