I did the math. If my roommate gives us $100, and the woman I wrote papers for gives me $100, I’ll have enough for rent.

Y’all are so awesome. I can’t even express it properly right now. I loveyou so much.

BREAKING: Here’s the tweet that could lead to a new grand jury in Ferguson, MO. 
#Ferguson: @shaunking took screenshot of tweeter @thesusannichols who claims to know juror on #MikeBrown #DarrenWilson grand jury & appears to be receiving leaked information. King says that within seconds of posting this, her friends told her to delete it & she did but not before it was screenshotted. She has since deleted her entire account but King says they checked & she is indeed a #STL resident w/ years’ worth of tweets from there. “If true, her tweet not only reveals a leak in the grand jury, but gives us an ugly glimpse into how things have gone so far. This person who posted it on twitter & her contact on the grand jury must be fully & completely investigated & removed if it’s true.”-@shaunking

Y’all better reblog the fuck outta this post it on facebook, twitter, IG, myspace, friendster, everything get this information out

So I bought and wore my first pair of “men’s” undies. They are trunks that go down my legs, and they have cute little buttons in the front and I love them and am so happy with them. And the band around the top is so cool lookin. I can’t wait to wear them with jeans and have the band showing :)

Dude, I wear boy’s underwear constantly at work. If you have to move a lot, boxer briefs are the BEST at preventing thigh-burn.

Yes! I wore them with a skirt and I didn’t have to bring baby powder with me to reapply to my thighs periodically like I normally do! Like why didn’t I think of this before?! And why are “boy shorts” underwear not even close to these? You can’t find any tight shorts in the ladies section for girls to wear under their clothes unless the crotch is longer than the legs, ugh.

Legit, boxer briefs are the best thing. They’re cheaper too.

I’m at my computer crying right now because some of you are amazing. Thank you, so much. You know who you are.

Kenny came over, saw what some of you had done, and just hugged me tight. We’re both so grateful. Thank you. We’re almost able to make rent now and I just cannot express how grateful I am. Really. Honestly.

Things I have to do over the next two days

kate-wisehart:

  • Come up with $150 for a new phone.
  • Come up with $250 to pay the rest of rent.
  • Come up with $250 to pay my title loan on my car.
  • Come up with $20 to buy my stepdaughter the Black Veil Brides T-shirt she wants so desperately. Obviously this isn’t a necessity, and she’s mature enough to understand if I tell her I need to wait on this one, but she’s so patient and she’s so used to not getting the things she wants that I really wanted to do this thing for her. I think this upsets me more than anything else.

Things I can’t do:

  • Get a job for another week, at least, while I recover from this surgery and the oral surgery I had last week.

That’s almost $700 I need to pull out of my ass. I have very little of worth to sell. I …don’t know what to do.

I hate to do this, but I’m going to point out that I have a paypal donation button on my main blog page. I’m not expecting y’all to pay for my shit, but anything anyone could spare, even fifty cents, would be helping. At the least, if I could scrounge up enough to buy Adrienne that shirt, I’d be super-grateful.

Suggestions on guaranteed quick-pay stuff I can do from my house/computer that doesn’t involve heavy lifting or having to dye my hair again (It’s gonna have to go back to black next week anyway, when I start putting applications in everywhere) would also be lovely.

If anyone needs any writing done, I’m pretty good at writing college-level essays and I can write fic.

Sorry about this, guys. I wouldn’t normally ask, and I’m really…IDK, ashamed to even be doing so, but…I’m so scared right now. The phone was the tipping point of terror.

A few people have donated and I want to say I LOVE YOU ALL and I mean that. I won’t be able to get a new phone, but I’ll have something to put toward rent (I had to take the car money out of the rent money) and that’s a lot more than I had before. Thank you!

Hehe equality right?

Do you not understand the purpose of this, or why the prices are what they are? Does this need to be explained to you?

Oh yea right, the famous “wage gap” between men and women that has been debunked tons of times! That sure is the right argument to fight sexism with!

Not debunked, misrepresented, as it is a complicated issue. It’s honestly more accurate to call it a PAY gap than a WAGE gap, since there are a myriad of factors at play here. Women DO, on average, make less money than men. That is indisputable, and the margins widen when you include factors of race, disability, and sexuality. 
Here’s a good starter resource on it. 
IF you would like some more in depth reading:
This one is from Stanford about the Gender Pay Gap
This is a New York Times article looking at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s report on the topic.
This one is from the International Trade Union Confederation 
This one is from Oxford, titled Up the Down Staircase: Women’s Upward Mobility and the Wage Penalty for Occupational Feminization
You can also look at the US Census’s look at the Pay Gap
Or the Institute for Women’s Policy Research
Even the United States Government Accountability Office has some information on it.
So yes, the bake sale above is a pretty simplistic little stunt about a complicated economic and social issue. But the fact that it pisses people off sort of makes its point for it. 

Excellent primary sources for those concerned about sex based oppression/ how men continually benefit from female subjugation also I would really like one of those Vegan cupcakes

These beautiful stones were accidentally created from layers of car paint In old auto factories At first glance, these brilliantly colorful gemstones might look like agate, a stone valued for its beauty and used in the jewelry industry. Their origin, however, might surprise you – these stones, called Fordite or Detroit Agate, are actually paint deposits from old car paintings racks.Before the car painting process was automated like it is now, automotive bodies were painted by hand on long production lines. The vehicles’ paint would drip off and dry on the equipment used to move the automotive bodies. This enamel paint would then get baked onto the rack and solidify. After this process is repeated hundreds or thousands of times, the deposits can grow to be several inches thick.Enterprising workers who recognized their potential value chipped off these waste products and saved them to be turned into jewelry later.
