Privilege Hierarchy

tylercoates:aseasonedplateofmurder:

I see some people are mad about my rape post but you guys know NOTHING of privilege. Women are always less privileged than men REGARDLESS of race. So that means when a man rapes a woman that it is always rape.

The Human Privilege “Break down” for those who need educating:

Most Privileged to least privileged….

McDonalds’ suggested budget for employees shows just how impossible it is to get by on minimum wage

anticapitalist:

Did no one at McDonald’s think, “This is a terrible idea. We’re going to get so much heat from this because we are entirely admitting that we pay shitty wages to our employees and that no one can live off working one minimum wage job alone.”????

The sad irony of today’s decision lies in its utter failure to grasp why the VRA has proven effective… Throwing out preclearance when it has worked and is continuing to work to stop discriminatory changes is like throwing away your umbrella in a rainstorm because you are not getting wet.

cordjefferson:

Not every adult U.S. citizen should have the right to vote. Instead, only those who pay taxes to a government should be eligible to vote in that government’s elections. So, for example, under this system, an adult paying sales tax in Rhode Island but no federal taxes would qualify to vote in Rhode Island state elections but not in federal elections. Restricting the right to vote to taxpayers is moral and practical.

After all, what is a vote? A vote is a piece of control over how the government spends taxpayer money. Every government program, every enforced law and every action taken by the government is funded from tax “revenue.” This includes government debt, since it must eventually be repaid, and inflation, since it is a tax on the purchasing power of the dollar. Thus, to function, government takes money from group A and distributes money — in the form of benefits and programs — to group B. Membership in group A and group B may or may not overlap.

White dudes, SMH.

This is the problem when our society conditions white boys to believe all their opinions are valid, you get assholes like this feeling entitled to espouse voter suppression.

TRIGGER WARNING: Rape. Not only do Pennsylvania lawmakers want to make it harder for poor women who become pregnant from rape or incest to get an abortion, now they're making it harder for these women to seek food stamps if they continue with their pregnancy. Being raped while poor in Pennsylvania: punishable by law.

There’s so much rage I have about this proposed bill that it’s difficult for me to put it into words so let me leave this here until steam stops pouring out of my ears.

State Representatives RoseMarie Swanger (R), Tom Caltagirone (D), Mark Gillen (R), Keith Gillespie (R), Adam Harris (R), and Mike Tobash (R): GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY STATE.

does anyone still pay attention to Ann Coulter?

RAPE CULTURE IS THE WORST AND SO IS THE CT SUPREME COURT

A short list of things that make me want to scream

  • Old white women who dismiss my political opinions and statements of FACT because I’m “young” 
  • Main Line Republicans
The high court normally has seven members. But it heard the case with just six and a 3-3 deadlock would allow the lower court decision to stand. A seventh justice, a Republican, was suspended in May after being charged in a political corruption investigation.

we're screw-ups. I'm a screw-up and I plan to be a screw-up until my late 20s, maybe even my early 30s.
