being a feminist is like trying to fix a giant hole in the wall and discovering that the entire wall is rotting and filled with termites and you have a lot more work to do than you thought you did
And also the termites verbally attack you while you fix the wall.
"NOT ALL TERMITES ARE LIKE THAT"
Isn’t this that daft punk song

do it harder
makes us porridge

“That’s your otp”?
“They’re just friends”
“That’s your otp”?
“But they hate each other.”
“That’s your otp?”
“But they’re not gay.”
"That’s your otp?"
"But they are like 2 feet apart in height."
"That’s your otp?"
"But one of them is dead."

i rely on my ability to write under pressure a bit too much.
but eh, it’s never failed me before.
i’ve knocked out a 20 page paper in a day, i can write 6000 words of chuck and yancy and raleigh being idiots in love in less than that.
We are forced to live in a system that steals from us daily, Kill snitch culture.
Important things to keep in mind!
- never take from ‘mom and pop’ type store. Its likely you’ll actually harm them, whereas taking from a walmart wont effect much.
- never take items that a worker is assigned to monitor (usually super expensive items), theyll be in trouble for it. and its usually a minimum wage worker and usually they lose hours or pay, or they even get fired.
- similar to the above, never take things that are usually locked up for the above reason
- if its a store you know gives their near-expiration products to workers/charity, try to avoid taking the near expiration products.
- if youre taking clothing, avoid leaving hangers. it sounds weird, but itll make it seem like it was more likely an error in the computer than a theft, since the empty hanger sitting there will seem suspicious.
- also for clothing, try not to take more than one item at once, as it will look suspicious if theres 10 medium shirts missing, and it won’t be written off as just a stocking error. and it will lead to workers being penalized
- basically just always consider ‘will this harm a worker’ and if the answer is yes then dont do it
like i was homeless for a while when i was younger and i tried to follow those guidelines to avoid doing harm to people who were probably not much better off than me while trying to get food for myself.
NO NO NO NO NO.
this is WRONG and IGNORANT and there is no such thing as harmless stealing. You ALWAYS hurt the minimum wage employee and even the lower level members of management that are only making a few bucks more than the employees.
"….taking from a walmart wont effect much." I currently work for a walmart, and before that i worked for a target and this is the biggest lie in this post. the more theft that takes place in the store, the more our hours are cut and the more firings that take place. There are signs in our break rooms to encourage us to report theft for this reason. Stores will never hide the ways that theft hurts employees. For example, during last year’s holiday season there was an unusually high level of theft going on and we’d find empty packages and hangers everywhere. During that january they cut our hours to a grinding halt and some weeks i didn’t get over 15 hours because Walmart needed to cut back from the money it lost in the holiday season. 30 hours in 2 weeks wasn’t shit when i was trying to pay bills and make rent and keep myself afloat, and this is even with me making over the min wage. At Target, i wouldn’t do more than 5 hour shifts twice a week during all the thefts there.
Not only does that affect our earnings, it also takes a toll when they only schedule one person per department and have 3 cashiers on schedule. Walmart is especially notorious for this and will leave the employees to pick up the slack. Not only do we end up underpaid but also overworked.
Sure, major retailers have insurance policies in place to replace stolen or lost merchandise, so the store isn’t at much of a loss but the employees still face repercussions. This kind of bullshit is being circulated around tumblr as if stealing is a harmless and righteous action of protest but it’s not. so yeah FUCK YEAH i WILL report the asshole that is taking from the store, and i will get A.P. on your punk ass because it’s not right that we have to suffer for you to be edgy.
TLDR: you will ALWAYS affect the employees.
THIS - FUCKING - THIS. THANK YOU SO FUCKING MUCH
because walmart’s theft spiked at the end of the year. my mom’s hours were cut and no one got the bonus they were supposed to get. we were looking forward to that bonus to pay off bills. that was a big set-back for us, so this idea that “oh let’s steal from walmart, they’re big and rich and nothing will happen” is utter bullshit.
i understand doing what you have to do when there’s no other option, but if you start spreading this shit around and encouraging people to steal when they don’t absolutely have to, don’t you fucking dare expect me to sit by, because somewhere in that store, there’s a single parent employee who’s getting their hours cut and their bonuses taken away.
"Snitch culture"? What the fuck is this, middle school?
See shit like this is why Game Theory should be taught in High School.
Otherwise you get edgy shitheads who have no idea how their actions affect others and why people act the way they do.
You get people tho think everyone is a sheeple just because they are acting in the interest of self preservation.
When I worked for guitar center they did ‘counts’ where they would individually scan the SKU of every item in the store to make sure all were accounted for. If a single item was missing, doesn’t matter if it’s a gibson les paul or a pack of strings, the fault fell to the person who worked in the department that day, no matter what. They get interrogated and possibly blamed, and most of the time the money comes out of their pocket because it’s recorded as a loss for the company. I’ll also add that they didn’t pay me worth shit and I was working upwards of 45 hours a week, not fun.
SO DON’T SHOPLIFT K
This is probably the best thing ever.
Why don’t we teach this to young boys?

THE MYTH THAT “MINORITIES” GET MORE SCHOLARSHIPS DEBUNKED SINCE 5EVER
This is something that comes up time and time again like clockwork.Here’s a”just the facts” post.
Racists LOVE this tired old saw. The problem is that it’s complete and utter bullshit, it always HAS been, and IT IS THE OPPOSITE OF REALITY.
Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population.
Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students. These statistics demonstrate that, as a whole, private sector scholarship programs tend to perpetuate historical inequities in the distribution of scholarships according to race.
BUT WHAT ABOUT FINANCIAL NEED BASED SCHOLARSHIPS????
It debunks the race myth, which claims that minority students receive more than their fair share of scholarships. The reality is that minority students are less likely to win private scholarships or receive merit-based institutional grants than Caucasian students. Among undergraduate students enrolled full-time/full-year in Bachelor’s degree programs at four-year colleges and universities, minority students represent about a third of applicants but slightly more than a quarter of private scholarship recipients. Caucasian students receive more than three-quarters (76%) of all institutional merit-based scholarship and grant funding, even though they represent less than two-thirds (62%) of the student population. Caucasian students are 40% more likely to win private scholarships than minority students.
STOP PARROTING RACIST MYTHS INSTEAD OF ACTUALLY FACT CHECKING
So stop saying this shit. you’re just plain fucking WRONG. Also, racist.
This is by far the easiest one I’ve ever seen.
