Think about this shit.

This is the third time the bill has failed, following defeats in 2010 and 2012.
The Paycheck Fairness Act would require employers to disclose payment and demographic information and prevent them from punishing workers who discuss their salaries. It would also allow civil pay discrimination lawsuits to be filed against employers.
Republicans opposed the bill, arguing it would encourage “frivolous” lawsuits and deprive women of workplace flexibility.- MSNBC

….Huh, so the article says “this legislation would double down on job loss” and “in other words … threatens to hurt the very people it claims to help” which seemingly translates to: “if everyone gets equal pay, we’re canning the female employees first cause now the company they work for can’t afford them.” Wow yeah thank you so much, Republicans, for opening up my eyes and protecting me from this terrible ploy that the Democrats are trying to succeed at. No, you fucking idiots…are you seriously that fucking stubborn.

i want to create a tv show about a group of friends where they’re all queer except the one token cishet friend who’s only there to say stereotypical “straight” things for laughs like “macklemore got me into rap” and “my mom and i got into a fight because she wouldn’t buy me a fourth obey snapback”

Or we could just stop stereotyping people.

you’re cast

Okay but Koujaku wandering around the house aimlessly and Aoba is just watching him pace back and forth between the door frames and he looks confused but also concerned and he’s been doing that for like, 15 goddamn minutes now so Aoba finally calls out to him, “OI KOUJAKU” and he stops and looks at Aoba and furrows his brow and says, “I can’t find Beni. I haven’t seen him for hours.”

Aoba just shrugs and stands up to move over to him to help him look and as soon as Aoba turns his back to Koujaku there he sees it. A little red puff in Aoba’s hood. He grabs the hem of Aoba’s jacket to hold him there shushing him a bit when Aoba questions him, motioning for him to look. Koujaku moves the hood a bit so Aoba can see. Beni’s been curled up in his hood for the past 2 hours, head tucked under his wing in sleep mode, his tiny sandals poking from underneath the fluff.

They decide to just leave him there for the rest of the night. Koujaku didn’t really need to look up new hairstyles for short hair anyway.

Do you still need more proof of rape culture?

As Noam Chomsky once pointed out for Z Magazine, old media types from the institutional bodies like American Enterprise Institute tend to regurgitate the same ideas with a reliability that is equally impressive and infuriating. While assuring the public that rape is a terrible crime, writers like Caroline Kitchens and Heather McDonald of right-wing think tank The Manhattan Institute try to claim that feminists have blown this whole rape culture thing way out of proportion.

Apparently, many women disagree. On Tuesday there were more than 1 million responses on the #RapeCultureIsWhen hashtag started by a frustrated Zerlina Maxwell in response to these right-wing narratives.

I am SICK and TIRED of people objecting to seeing women using their breasts for what they are actually for. BREASTFEEDING IS NOT VULGAR OR OBSCENE.

I support breastfeeding all the way, even if it is in public.

And the award winning one:

THIS. THIS. THIS/

OMG THIS

Bring socks!!!! #homeless #donate #homelessness

As are toiletries!

I would also advice NOT to buy wool socks because yes, they are warm, but wool shrinks very easily, some people are allergic to wool, and wet wool is one of the most uncomfortable things in the world.
Thick cotton socks would be best, they’d last the longest and be the easiest to take care of and clean.
- Jane

Cotton is best. Always cotton

I feel the need to STRESS the necessity of socks. For the event AMOK through Random Acts this year, we went to DTLA to pass out donations. At one point we basically ran out and some of us broke off from the group to buy some more items. We ended up at a convenience store that had two boxes of cotton socks. We bought them and as we were walking one man asked us if we had socks. And we said “Yes.” and gave him a pair and then suddenly we were surrounded by individuals all asking for socks. We were out of socks in a few moments. I can say from personal experience that socks were the most important article of clothing that they wanted.And as far as toiletries go, tampons. TAMPONS AND PADS. One woman was so excited, gracious, and thankful to receive tampons and pads, as it is a donation that seems to be overlooked. So please, of donations that could be given, while all articles of clothing and food and other necessities are more than welcome, socks and tampons and pads are largely needed.
