A little extra for your Thursday, Racializens.
But the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work.
We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing."

WHITE PASSING/WHITE PEOPLE PLEASE WATCH THIS IF YOU EVER WERE GONNA WATCH ANYTHING WATCH THIS.
Just wanna state that I believe being hard femme also means using your privileges (whatever they may be) and your ability to be hard badass femmes to smash down on oppression just like this.

“Oh, I got tied up on the subway…”
-apologize quickly once
-ramble on about how you’re actually really accepting
-tell them about your trans* best friend who you’re so very supportive of
-apologize some more
-talk about how you never do this
-apologize even more
If you don’t think Corgis are one of the most adorable things on the planet you’re wrong
i just misread the words “raw sewage” as “dan savage” so that might not actually count as misreading
