Into Video Games, feminism, and dogs.
Aasif Mandvi interviews Fox Business commentator, Todd Wilemon.
Before you start ranting about the minimum wage being to low and want it to be $15.
This should be funny but it’s too true to laugh at. Raising the minimum wage will destroy low wage employment (AKA entry level jobs).
Okay no that is absolutely not true?!
By raising the minimum wage you ensure that people can actually, you know, BUY THINGS and SUPPORT THE ECONOMY?
Okay I am literally too tired of this horseshit. You know how much McDonalds would have to raise their prices in order to actually pay a REASONABLE minimum wage?
A nickle. And not even on ALL of their food items- just SOME of them.
You assholes trying to keep the poor from trying to improve their situation make me fucking sick. Do you even KNOW HOW FUCKING CAPITALISM WORKS?
YOU PAY PEOPLE PROFIT FOR THEIR WORK SO THEY CAN BUY MORE THINGS AND PAY OTHERS PROFIT FOR THEIR GOODS AND SERVICES AND ITS A GODDAMN CYCLE. YOU DONT KEEP PEOPLE BARELY PAID ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO FEED OR CLOTHE OR HOUSE THEMSELVES BECAUSE THAT KILLS THE GODDAMN ECONOMY.
THE WORKING FORCE IS WHAT POWERS THE ECONOMY
NOT CORPORATE SHITFUCKS TRYING TO BRING US BACK TO 1800’S WORK CONDITIONS
THANK YOU AND GOOD FUCKING NIGHT.
Tumblr user artiestroke lays down the law
Also the touchscreen kiosks that McDonald’s Europe ordered back in 2011 shown in the picture were ordered to speed up taking orders so their paid employees could focus more on filling those orders, not as a method of replacing minimum wage workers
As a matter of fact, they projected back in 2011 that this would result in an INCREASE in jobs
And some fucking empathy for other people besides yourselves. Fuck you for thinking that having to pay a little extra for a cheeseburger is more important than someone being able to live off their wages.
This is how toxic capitalism is. People think that cheap hamburgers are more important than human lives and well being.
We live in a culture that commodifies FOOD, WATER, HOUSING, and HEALTH CARE, and that SCOFFS at the idea that everyone should be able to actually afford all of those things even if they are employed.
We have a system where people think it is ABSURD to suggest that EVERYONE should be able to EAT.
this is when tumblr is good - when it tears a new asshole outta bullshit memes like this one. do. the fucking. research. and as always, capitalism only works on paper, not in practice. in practice, someone has to not eat, because someone else is eating, while someone else is waiting to capitalize on it.
very into charts about naps
Nap charts guys.
Fake bisexuals do exist though, there was this fake bisexual at my school that turned out to be just old Mr Willikers in a bisexual costume.
He was pretending to be a bisexual to scare everyone away from the old mill where he had hidden all the treasure he’d stolen from the museum. And he said “I would have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for you meddling kids!”, true story.
COLOR PALETTE MASTERPOST by forbiddenforest
So today I felt like sharing some useful websites that provide pre-made color palettes (left side), as well as sites that allow you to create custom ones (right side). They can be used for graphic design, themes, art, interior design,
or just something pretty to look at.

I hope you find this useful (and please like or reblog if you did)! Enjoy :)
OH MY GOD I JUST USED A BUNCH OF THESE TODAY WHAT THE——?!
i’ve been doing research about jobs/companies that are accepting of trans and the like since i’m going job hunting again next month, and i found this list, which lists trans-friendly businesses. it links to this page, a directory for employers.
tagging so people can see it, i figured this might come in handy for some people!
Violence Against Native Women is Not Traditional: Whisper at Ted x ABQWomen
I want every white person to look at this and understand, “Sexy Indian” costumes are detrimental.
That hypersexualizing our sacred garb is detrimental.
That for Native women the fear isn’t, ‘if’, it’s ‘when’
For the of the gods, trust and believe that is the reality we must live with and by doing the above, you are only making it worse.
How could I miss this?
