I don’t really have time to work on anything right now because I have work in a little while, but here’s a yay my tablet is working again drawing!
Anonymous asked: i am tired of you people putting capitalism down it is not perfect but it works best.
I mean, you’re “tired of people putting capitalism down”
meanwhile I’m tired of starving. I’m tired of counting pennies. I’m tired of constantly panicking about finances. giving rent money to some rich dude who owns 30 fucking homes so he can profit off of me when I’m struggling to survive.
I’m tired of having shitty health care. I’m tired of worrying what I’m gonna do if my local support group leaves because they can only find work in a city where I can’t afford rent. Or what I’m gonna do if my car breaks down and I can’t walk to the store. I’m tired of crying from stress.
I’m tired of being trapped in an endless cycle of poverty because I’m disabled and can’t work. Because SSI benefits are ridiculously miniscule, and they have strict rules against saving money or even receiving or earning a little extra. I’m tired of my food stamps benefits getting reduced while the cost of food inflates.
I’m tired of my friends being physically, sexually, and psychologically abused by their employers because they don’t have any other options. I’m tired of people having to compete against 200 other people for a job and then be told they’re lazy if they don’t have a job.
I’d like it if my bf didn’t have to leave the state for 5 months, working a job that endangers his life, so he can finish college.
but I guess that’s nothing compared to having to hear people complain about capitalism sometimes when you log into tumblr. cry more
Coney Island. 1940s.

Internalized heterosexism having been out twelve years, having spent much of that time as an lgbt activist in various roles, and /still/ seeing this photo and going, “they’re such good friends!”
But if this was a man and a woman in this pose, would I infer they were friends? No, because the body language speaks of intimacy. They’re holding hands, and standing back to chest. That’s not how one stands with their friend.
And yet, my first instinct was to completely reframe the image to fit a hetero paradigm because of course there were no lesbians living in NYC in the 40’s.
That’s what being marinated in a culture that delegitimates your history and identity does to people.
things ppl say that alerts you to them being the actual worst:
- john was my favourite beatle
- abolishing religion would solve a lot of problems
- i’m not a racist i hate all races equally
- disliking someone because of their political affiliation is ridiculous
- but if you think about it stereotypes do exist for a reason
- god, can you believe people on welfare own iphones
- but what about mens rights
- why can’t white people say the n-word
- i’m just being the devils advocate
listen tumblr let’s not enforce the myth that homosexual relationships are approximations of the heterosexual model. let’s not tell gay men and lesbians that their partnerships are just imitations of a system that oppresses and alienates them, because, trust me, we’ve heard it all before, and it…
