Tw for medication

So last night was pretty awful and as a result today was also pretty awful. But I managed to get a refill on my medication and now I’m heading to a friend’s place. And tomorrow we’re going to see Guardians of the Galaxy and I’m going to cosplaying Peter Quill. So yay

So lately I’ve been feeling that I might actually be a trans man. I don’t know, mostly I feel like genderqueer describes me so well and I’m very happy with identifying as gender neutral. What I do know is that I’m going to start saving up for top surgery as soon as I can and I’m going to be doing lots of research. So yeah

McDonald’s worker arrested after telling company president she can’t afford shoes.

"A woman who has been employed by the McDonald’s Corporation for over 10 years says she was arrested last week after she confronted the company president at a meeting and told him she couldn’t afford to buy shoes or food for her children.

Nancy Salgado, 26, told The Real News that she felt like she had to speak out during McDonald’s USA President Jeff Stratton’s speech at the Union League Club of Chicago on Friday for the sake of her children.

“It’s really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day,” she shouted as Stratton was speaking. “Do you think this is fair, that I have to be making $8.25 when I’ve worked for McDonald’s for ten years?”

“I’ve been there for forty years,” Stratton replied from the podium.

“The thing is that I need a raise. But you’re not helping your employees. How is this possible?” Salgado asked.

At that point, someone approached Salgado and informed her that she was going to be arrested.

She later recalled the encounter to The Real News’ Jessica Desvarieux.

“The strength was very powerful, like, just remembering the face of my kids, like I say, you know, just simple things like I can’t provide a pair of shoes like everybody else does, sometimes every month, or anything like that,” she said. “And he needs to know we are what all the employees at McDonald’s are going through. We’re struggling day to day to provide our needs in our houses, things for our kids. And it’s just–it gets harder and harder with just the poverty wage they have us living in.”

“They just told me, you know, well, you’re being under arrest because you just interrupted, you trespassed the property. You’re just going to go to jail,” Salgado added. “And what I remember just telling them, ‘well, like, so, because I have to speak out my mind and I had to tell the president the poverty wage I’m living in, that’s just against the law?’ You know, just be able to speak up your mind and say, you know what, I can’t survive with $8.25? It’s just — it’s ridiculous that I’m going to get arrested. You know.”

Salgado, who is still working at McDonald’s, said she had her hours cut following the arrest and feared further retaliation.

“The CEOs make millions and billions a year and why can’t they provide enough for their employees?” she wondered.”

I think that this is beyond awful for many reasons. People can’t afford to live off of the wages that they are given currently, and can’t even speak out against it. I know tumblr is great for spreading important news like this, so please help me get the word out to support this woman.

Cartoon Network yanked Green Lantern and Young justice off the air with no advance warning or explanation. They were not put online.It was several months before they brought the shows back to the air, and then they decided not to renew them. The fans had a letter campaign and petitions to change their minds and even offered to crowd fund the shows. Despite the fact that the show’s finales made it into the top three ratings slots, they were still cancelled. (I think Young Justice even beat Adventure Time.)Do not put Cartoon Network on a pedestal because of this. They cancelled two superhero shows, one of which had an extremely diverse cast, for no apparent reason.

don’t forget they did the same to Beware the Batman, Sym-Bionic Titan, and Generator Rex. CN has done way fucking worse than Nickelodeon.

And why the fuck is their continued support of Clarence a bad thing? Last I heard the creator had sexually assaulted at least one women.

You can not write the word “ignorance”. The future is on sale.

Push aside and laugh at the karmic tale saying it’s superstition.

the “glitchy” part in the beginning is why i’m alive

instead of watching the 50 Shades trailer, why not just make awkward eye contact with a total stranger at the grocery store for a solid 2 minutes and 34 seconds? you get the same skin-crawling, uncomfortable feeling but without the shitty writing, terrible acting and massive dose of rape culture

PSA: Big corporations putting feel good feminist messages in their advertisements wont result in women’s liberation as much as it will result in goading liberal minded folks to buy more shampoo or whatever. There’s no point in fawning over these commercials.
