    And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

    Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.

    I’ve gotten more angry asks about this post than I have actual reblogs.

    If you can’t like Captain America anymore because he’s black, there’s a word for that.

    please don’t make people with depression feel guilty for their lack of interest in things or their inability to motivate themselves please and thank you goodbye 

    on that note, please don’t make people with anxiety feel guilty about their inability to do tasks you deem simple and literally call them children and tell them to grow up because of it

    Please reblog if you wouldn’t act differently around a friend if they came out as bisexual, gay, lesbian, asexual, pansexual, polysexual, or admitted to being trans, agender, genderfluid, or bigender.

    Anonymous said: Hi! I love your blog C: I have a question for you: I'm an aspiring author about to start a new manuscript. I want to include characters in my story that are strippers, but I want to represent them as realistic. What are a few important things I should keep in mind while writing scenes at their work? Thank you for being so wonderful and for any help you can give <33

    stripperina:

    I would portray them as complex, intelligent, and dynamic people, just like non-stripper women.

    Why don’t people get this? 

    Also, you can replace “stripper” with literally any other category or group of people. I mean, honestly, folks.
