facebooksexism:

I know it’s not really sexism but I felt like issues like this should come up.

Because as far as I’m concerned when people make jokes about minimum wage workers wanting a better living wage but not being “smart enough” for it, they’re:

a) Saying fuck poor people they don’t deserve to be able to live properly and

b) Saying fuck people with learning disabilities or couldn’t go to college or even had to drop out middle/high school.

To me this is classist and ableist because god forbid we actually try to help the people in minimum wage jobs who were unable to get anything better because they’re set up to fail.

tbh, I don’t think it’s any coincidence that they drew what appears to possibly be a WOC who is the object of their scorn. It’s all intersections, peeps.

Watch: “It’s on us” urges the White House in powerful rape prevention video

If a man is preying on a woman who has had too much to drink, it is her responsibility to stop him and her fault if she can’t? No, it’s on us.

That is the message President Obama and Joe Biden are sending today with the launch of their new sexual assault prevention campaign “It’s On Us.”

This is a huge step forward

Great to see Kerry!!!! And Common!!!

Yes!!!

Katrina Class

I skipped this class last week. I didn’t feel good; I was tired; I wanted to see my sister for a little while. I skipped. So today I returned and was reminded exactly what it is about this class that saddens me so much and instills a sense of exhaustion:

It all feels so useless.

We watched more about the terrible aftermath of the hurricane and discussed the matrix we live in and how life works and it all was frustrating because…it…feels like there is no hope sometimes. This is the problem of beginning to understand privilege and oppression and how fucking awful the government at large is…but we learned today that smaller scale community driven projects do help. 

But it still pisses me off how awful all of the reactions were during these times. 

That in mind, the day was actually very good. I did a homework assignment with a friend today and have 2 out of 3 figures for my works. So I will be hunting that third friend down and attacking them viciously with pleads for assistance. 

"Let me draw you like a french girl! But with clothes!" Or whatever the line is.

Also there was an accident on my way home today that allowed me to have a Tina moment. …Somehow writing that made me feel like an opportunistic asshole. 

It wasn’t a major accident; nobody was hurt as far as I could tell! It was just disruptive was all!

So following is my stupid Tina post.

If you guys could just take a second to read this, I’d really appreciate it.

My Aunt Tina has been pretty sick her whole life; when she was 15 she was diagnosed with a vicious, incurable kidney disease, and at 17 she developed Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After beating cancer, she lost her kidneys and has been dialyzing since she was 25. She has received two donor kidneys, one 9 months and the other 5 years after she first began dialysis, and both failed and had to be removed.

10 years later, my Aunt is trying again. She’s had some recent blows to her health that have made dialysis even harder on her system than it usually is. This time, however, she’s opting for live transplant because it has a greater chance of success.

The cost of a transplant is immense, and as someone who has been in and out of the hospital most of her life, my Aunt can attest to the fact that those bills add up very quickly.

To raise money for her transplant, she’s been making spoonie pens, magnets, and lapel pins (pictured above) and can also knit just about anything you could possibly want.  Here’s her store’s facebook page, please go check it out. (If you don’t know what “spoonie” means, here’s a great page that talks about invisible illnesses and “the spoon theory”)

She also has a Gofundme account  which has more of her story. 

We’ve only raised about $600 out of the $5,000 needed to get my aunt her new kidney. 

Please help in any way you can, even if it’s just passing this along. Thank you.
