I will give 3 basketfulls of perfect apples if someone allows me to visit their town to get signatures for a villager petition
Some people mistake my lack of desire to have children with lack of awareness of how to treat small human beings but let me tell you I may not have the level of selfless responsibility required to care for and raise another human for the rest of their life but I sure can tell when you’re being a dick of a parent or caretaker for no goddamn reason so cut that shit out don’t tell me “it’d be different if it were your kids” because that just admits to me that the difference would be they’d be respected

kailiia replied to your post “i have my in person interview with pier 1 tomorrow and i also randomly…”
sometimes i think a lot about the fact that the native american drama class i took in my last semester of college was taught by a white guy and that the guest speaker who came to campus to discuss the relationship/communications between the north american / central american natives (and who received high praise from my professor) was also a white guy and during the Q&A session at the end when a woman asked the speaker what he was doing to increase visibility / direct attention to other actual native speakers in the field he said he wasn’t aware of any and idk where i’m going with this but this is the shit that gets to me
The notion of an “LGBT Safe Space” is such a paragon of liberalism. It’s easy to create a ~safe space~ without thinking critically about what that means; when the vast majority of lgbtq+ youth are poor or unemployed, when 90% of trans people aren’t formally employed, when queer people of colour made up 75% of the community’s victims of violent crime last year, how can we speak of a “safe space” for LGBT people without engaging critically against colonialism, misogyny, capitalism, and classism?
Liberalism breeds this kind of uncritical thinking, it thrives off it. It tells us “you are safe now” because the merest space has been cut out for us without addressing what marginalizes and disenfranchises the most vulnerable members of a community.

I said “have a nice day!” to this old dude and apparently that’s not fucking good enough because he retrieved his wallet and from like a stack of 30 of these things pulled one out and gave it to me and said something like “I hope you reconsider your choices next time”
This is the most self entitled shit i’ve seen all day
