BREAKING: Seattle becomes the first city to raise its minimum wage to $15/hour. SHARE if Congress should take Seattle’s lead! 
the current minimum wage (at least in NY) is $8.00 and less than a year ago it was $7.25, so yes.

Wow

Nope nope and nope. Make better decisions and life and you won’t be working a minimum wage job.

^ That’s literally the dumbest fucking thing I’ve ever read in my life. Are you the kind of person that goes up to homeless people and tells them to get a job? Good fuuuuuuuuuuuucking lord. If everyone was able to get a “better” job, there would be absolutely no-one populating the mass expanse of the workforce. Are you unable to see how this suggestion is completely and utterly illogical? And extremely rude?
Thank god people in Seattle have good heads on their shoulders so single mothers working 3 minimum wage jobs to feed their children can finally be treated like actual live human beings with needs and not capitalistic automatons. 

"Just get a better job" is the most white bread privilege shit I’ve ever heard.

I don’t even think it’s white privilege. I think it’s just near-bottomless dumbfuckery.

"Get a better job," they said.
Suddenly, every custodian everywhere quits their job and gets a better one. Now, upon entering public restrooms, everyone is handed a spray bottle and toilet brush, because now they have to scrub their own shit out of that public porcelain throne. Women’s restrooms come complete with plastic bags, because they have to bring their soiled period products home with them and dispose of them at home, because there is no more public waste removal.
"Get a better job," they said.
All fast food employees quit and find a “better job”. No more fast food places! There also aren’t any restaurants. Better learn to cook your own shitty garbage burgers. You have only yourself to yell at if you forget the cheese.
"Get a better job," they said.
Retail stores no longer have any employees. All shopping must be done online, but you have to drive out and pick up the supplies yourself because the Fedex people quit and got better jobs, too.
"Just get a better job," they said!
You now have to grow and make every single thing you ever consume for the rest of your life, because no one wants to do it for you at $7 an hour.
Fuck you.

Make better life decisions?????
Yeah ok, so what happens when a person makes all the best possible life decisions they can make AND STILL door after door after door is shut in their face?????

But can we discuss the irony of a dude who’s blog is titled Underground Communist talking about get better jobs? Can we? Because really? This is what happens when people don’t learn what words mean. Education reform really needs to happen.

Just so everybody knows, the mirror is actually more reliable than the camera. Even though people say “the camera never lies”, it distorts your photographs a little bit. It has to turn a 3d image (you in real life) to a 2d image (a photograph) and consequently skews the proportions a little bit.
Also, “photogenic” is a real thing. Certain faces photograph well and others don’t. It’s all down the angles, proportions and size of your features.
Have you ever seen someone stunning who looks great in professional photographs and not in candids? Yeah, that’s because there’s a huge difference between a professional and an amateur. Professionals know how to minimise the issues cameras have. Lighting, angles and even the distance you are away from the camera plays a part (the amount of distortion varies depending on how close you are).
TL;DR if you think you look great in the mirror but not in the photo, trust the mirror. You look great!

NOT ONLY THAT, but when you look in a mirror, you’re seeing your face in motion, how others would see it. In a photograph, you’re still, and it can make small flaws and the like seem a lot more prominent, despite them being quite minuscule in person.

Also! Also, when you see yourself in the mirror you are looking at you face reverse of how a camera pics it up. No face is perfectly symmetrical so you get so used to seeing a mirrored version of your face that when it’s flipped in a picture you subconsciously notice the tiny differences in your face and thus you think you don’t look right.

I have never felt so relieved and beautiful thank you guys


this is one of the most important self worth post on tumblr

I know some people like to fly this flag. Most often I hear the argument that “Its about heritage NOT hate.” Well, what heritage are you displaying? I suppose you could argue the “heritage” as this image of the southern belles, southern gentlemen, a world stepped in traditions and grandeur. A time when the south stood tall - a Camelot long gone as the result of the Civil War — but then I want you to ask, on whose backs was that fantasy built? 
This flag represents southern belles, gentlemen, plantations and a glorious southern cities, all of which profited from slave labor. This flag represents an idea and a system where only certain people had rights and privileges. It was a time when many of you reading this could have owned me. You could have raped me and been within your rights as an owner. You could rip me away from my mother and sold me, and been within your rights. You could have beat me until my back was raw, and been within your rights. You could have pulled my children out of my hands and sold them, and been within your rights. You could have killed me. And then your biggest upset would be your loss of property and revenue. That is how much I would have been worth in this “Old South”. There would be no protests. I would have just been another dead n*gger. 
 It still boggles me that people defend this flag and fly it as “heritage”, and to me it displays an ignorance and blinded privilege towards a dark history. When I see this flag being flown, I do not see “Southern Pride”, I see an auction block, lynch mobs and a noose. As a black person, I wonder if I am really in a safe place.

Symbols can mean different things to different people, should we call the cross racist because the KKK burned them on people’s front lawns? 
Should I mention that the US Flag is just as guilty because several of the founding fathers owned slaves?

I’m from the south, as is most of my family. Most of the people I know who have confederate flags are blatantly racist and unashamed of it. Even up here in Washington state, if I see someone with a confederate flag, it often is apparent that they’re a) a wannabe “country” girl or boy, or b) a racist. I have yet to be wrong about it. I’m sure there are people to whom the flag is a symbol of heritage, however many people use it as a symbol of intolerance. The American flag is the sign of a country. The cross is a religious and historic symbol. The confederacy was a bunch of people who didn’t eve consider themselves a part of this country, and tried to secede from us. Is that really a positive symbol?

—These are the same people by the way, that the next minute will screech, “GOD BLESS AMERICA”. This flag isn’t about “rebellion”, rebellious from what? A country you want to keep all the gays and illegals out of? The country you blast “God Bless the USA” in your truck?
PFft. People who fly this flag are screaming its about rebellion from a country that they don’t want certain people to be part of.


The point of tradition, states rights, etc, is moot as that’s not even Confederate flag, the flag used in the attempted cecession. (Not that that flag would be any less horrible, tbh.) The one in the picture is the Battle Flag. It’s all about the racism.

Just because these women made the decision to take photographs of themselves like this, doesn’t mean it should be taken as an invitation to share them or leak them.

And no one should shame them in anyway whatsoever, shame the disrespectful little shit who has no respect for privacy.
