Mexico City: Sex workers gather to commemorate their colleagues who were violently murdered, two days before the Day of the Dead festival.
Someday, I just want to reply to one of these “can you please take me off of the listserv?” emails by telling them that no
there is no possible way that I can take remove them from the listserv
it can’t be done. we’ve tried. nothing works.
if we remove you from the listserv, we’ll damage a vital artery and the entire listserv will fail
you have to stay
there’s no feasible way that this can be achieved
it’s for the greater good
There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State.
As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion.
So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”
Anonymous said: You are amazing. I wish I could give you a huge hug.
I don’t know when this is from or why it was sent to me, because I just saw it, but thank you, anonymous hug person! I love hugs, and if I knew you in any non-anonymous way / you were close by, I would definitely give you a hug. I’m really into that form of communication.
The idea that $15 hourly is an “unreasonable” request only holds up if you believe companies like McDonald’s and Starbucks are barely scraping by as it is, and even then, if a company can’t afford to pay their employees a living wage, they can’t afford to continue being a company, and should go under as a result.
Racism in advertising.
This is what we’re told constantly. That our brown skin is ugly and that we can only be beautiful if we’re white.
fucking boycott these brands. fucking Dove has the fucking gall to mount a huge, ongoing ad campaign in Europe and North America built on the idea of “”“”natural beauty (size-eight, possibly-slightly-over-age-30 models, one nonwhite model per ad if we’re feeling rly super radical)”“”” all the while peddling these products elsewhere. DO. NOT. BUY. THESE. BRANDS.
Yeah, how’s that “inner beauty” ad campaign going, guys?
But I don’t know why people are surprised. They’re in it for the money, they’re not a charity.
Forget the whole industry, it’s not out to make us love ourselves. If we did, they’d be out of work.

I’m fine! I just sometimes do regrettable things. Thanks for taking the time to ask.
