t-shirt that says “i rely on pharmaceutical drugs to preform routine tasks”
Booty shorts that say “and then I don’t do them”
what if you woke up one morning and checked your Youtube Recommended videos and you got recommended a true crime video by one of those girls who do their make up and shit while talking about true crime cases and the thumbnail had your photo in it with the title “The Unexplained Murder Of Y/N”
Opinions that not only can but actually need to coexist:
- Internet smut and fetish content shouldn’t be so strewn around and unfiltered that children can trip over it on the way to a Minecraft stream.
- Social media brands have been cracking down on adult content in alarmingly regressive ways that empower anti-lgbt agendas, criminalize an ever broadening definition of “sex work,” and yeah, on a lesser but still meaningful note, strangle a lot of art and expression that wasn’t even as lewd as what you can still catch on TV.
This thing where everyone feels shamed into taking one of two extreme sides about every sexual topic, like in this case you’re allegedly either standing with homophobic puritan troglodytes or with incest fanfic NAMBLA troglodytes, has been been around for eternity but it sounds like it’s about to go more mainstream than it ever has before, that’s gonna a fun next few years maybe.
so i made a post about autistic people having high rates of unemployment, and i noticed that some people in the tags were saying things like “wait does that mean i shouldn’t tell people i’m autistic on job applications?” or “but i have to say i’m autistic in job interviews” and i just want to say that no. you absolutely should not mention your autism (or any other neurodivergence) on job applications or during job interviews. it’s ok if you didn’t know this, but a lot of application questions are meant to screen out neurodivergent people. yes, it’s absolutely illegal, but companies do it anyway. so don’t give them the information they need to discriminate against you. if you can pass for neurotypical for the duration of a job interview, please, don’t let them know you’re autistic.
if you need accommodations, make your case for them after you’ve already got the job
The number of people I have known who have pretended to be more ill/disabled than they really are: almost none.
The number of people I have known who have pretended to be less ill/disabled than they really are: almost everyone.
When people tell you they have a chronic illness/disability, believe them. Otherwise you are an Ableist asshole.
This messed with me for so long and it still does because I’m like,,,, am I faking it??? Is it actually that bad??? And then I have a good day and I’m like well I imagined the pain I’m the first place I’m a fraud,,, then I get a bad day and suddenly I’m dying
i was gonna say “the only times ive pretended to be more disabled than i am was to get accomodations i really needed but wouldn’t have gotten otherwise” and then i was like wait.
That’s just being honest about how disabled i am.
ok wait that last reblog messed with me so much thats so true
You were born of a sacrilegious union. Your green dragon mom never figured the knight she seduced while masquerading as a noblewoman was a silver dragon in disguise. You’d no idea either, born a human orphan. When your dragon blood awoke, so did the dangers which all your heritage entails.
I took a college course on the history of cars in film, and the shit I learned about freeways blew my mind. They purposely got rid of a trolley system and replaced them with city busses that were bad ON PURPOSE. They wanted 2 cars at every home, so they really made a point to sabotage the public transportation system. Make it so people hated busses.
Freeways also destroyed homes, and caused a lot of pollution. I watched a video about how children were getting sick from the sudden pollution.
This makes me especially furious when bus transport is such an incredible tool for public transport–when done right. unlike trolleys and trains, which require laying tracks (and sometimes massive tunneling projects), installing a bus system simply requires the individual vehicles and bus stops (signs and benches, in the most simple form). that makes it cost effective for small cities and towns that can’t or won’t invest in the overhead for larger projects. also bus routes can be easily adjusted--unlike, say, a trolley that goes down the same set of tracks every time. Buses have huge potential! Unfortunately, all these benefits also make them easier for politicians and lobbyists to quietly sabatoge.
Even so, in some places we do have good bus-based transportation systems–such as in university towns that have a vested interest in providing public transport to campuses that are already very tight on parking space. Some cities and towns also do a decent job with their bus systems–but that is highly dependant on local politics, and there is always a risk of wealthy interest groups getting involved and fucking with things. Ironically, some of the best proof we have that buses are a good mass transport option come from private bus systems set up by companies like Apple and Tesla which use buses to transport thousands of their own employees, who would otherwise be stuck in a broken system of enormous commute times–where everyone else is stuck.
Anyway. Everything the original post says is correct–public transport had been criminally sabatoged in the U.S. And it is costing people jobs, livelihoods, and access to basic necessities like hospitals and grocery stores. It’s not glamorous, but it is an enormous quality-of-life and class issue, and I’m relieved to see more people talking about it.
Invest in public transport, in public housing, in libraries, in education. Invest in public services. These are the heart and soul of a functioning society, and they pay for themselves a thousand times over.
Gotta love how everything aspecs do is misinterpreted as ill-intentioned. How romance repulsion is seen as repulsion to specifically gay romance i.e. homophobia. How aros talking about the overemphasis on romance over friendship in fandom is seen as an attack on gay ships, how aros saying “it doesn’t have to be romantic” is conflated with homophobes saying “it doesn’t have to be gay”. How aces complaining about unnecessary sex scenes in media is equated to censorship. How aspecs talking about allos or even using the word “allo” is treated as an evil conspiracy to “lump gay people with their oppressors” or whatever. Gotta love how no matter what we say no one will listen and people will find a way to vilify it.
landlords are so fucked because genuinely I’d be so happy to be an actual building manager. Like a real one. Just being the handyman that helps keep a place running. Make sure people living there are doin well and have what they need in their place. Do what I can to help manage the property and make it a nice communal space. I’d be like a chieftain. I’d even lead people from my complex on long journeys to raid monasteries for their valuables. Perhaps even establish trade routes reaching as far out as Byzantium. Thatd be a mad chill job I’d be good at it.
Are you a Gold Star lesbian? (Just in case you don't know what it means, a Gold Star lesbian is a lesbian that has never had the sex with a guy and would never have any intentions of ever doing so)
Does masturbation count?
Regardless, fuck off
All I’m seeing is a well paying job with good customers
MANY religions worldwide would consider this a solemn and respected post of work. Every form of paganism I have personally run across would say you’re doing an important duty. In Judaism, we’d say you’re fulfilling a Mitzvah by respecting the dead and honoring their memories.
If you go in with good intentions, any spirits still hanging around WILL NOT HURT YOU. Just show them respect.
Also seriously that’s nearly $17k a MONTH. I’ve had jobs where I didn’t earn that in a YEAR.
Even if those ghosts ain’t friendly, I am full-on taking that job. $200k a year. $200k a fuckin year. No retail, no food service, no manager hovering and riding my ass, no annoying coworkers? I’ll deal with the ghosts.
i’d take ghosts over people any day <3
Fresh air, no sitting in an office, no customer service, just me and a bunch of gravestones and maybe Maria from three graves down having a hissy? For that money, what’s not to like?
Plus like, what ghost is gonna decide ‘yes today I will take horrible vengeance on the person who quietly and respectfully keeps the plants tended and the headstones clean’. Whoever they’re gonna fuck with, it’s not gonna be me.
Fr tho, since when have you ever heard of the graveyard keeper being the one haunted? It’s always the dumbass who doesn’t listen to their advice that gets got.
I want this job so bad.
Also, it’s a night job. There won’t be a whole lot to worry about. It would be mild upkeep at most since there’s presumably a day shift. And that’s 200k if you work full time. With pay like that you could work part time and still make bank. I could work 3 days a week and still make more than I ever have in my life.
And I would just like to examine for a moment the dystopia that has been created where an entire generation or two of people who would gladly take being haunted in exchange for a living wage. Like… I’m not saying capitalism is how we end up with mass numbers of people willing to work with demons, but capitalism is how we get mass numbers of people willing to work with demons.
Anyway, I am also in for this one. I’ll take poltergeists over white women in a grocery store any day.
I love how when you pick up a cat they can veto that decision simply by altering their gravitational field
I personally enjoy when you pick up a cat and they immediately transform into an eel
I favor the cats that go limp when picked up. Like carrying a tube of cat, and the only evidence of it being a cat is the purring.
I love characters that are completely harmless until they finally unleash their power and then they’re TERRIFYING
or, even better: totally harmless but occasionally the other characters catch glimpses of what’s underneath and you just know
Characters with raw, unbridled power, that choose compassion and kindess anyway
