"And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard."

when you say something and immediately regret it and like even like 20 years later everyone has forgotten about it but you’re still like ‘oh damn why did I say that’

DEBI JACKSON, MOTHER OF TRANSGENDER CHILD, GIVES MOVING SPEECH

The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”

So watch the full video to see her answers to those difficult questions here.

Chills down my whole body. This is how parents should react.

So for the first time in my life, I asked a prof if I could be the first to present. 

I’m nervous just thinking about it.

THANKS FOR INADVERTENTLY GIVING ME THE COOLEST TITLE EVER

I’M GONNA PUT THIS ON MY ABOUT ME PAGE

i’m not even gonna respond to the hateful part like you surely know you’re trash already i’m just gonna proudly be a fat pirate dragon-worshipping feminist

i’m assuming everybody who gave this notes also identifies as a fat pirate dragon-worshipping feminist and is equally confused as to which of the many possible meanings the title could be referring to

Wait wait wait is that a fat pirate feminist who worships dragons

Or a fat pirate-dragon who is worshipping feminism

Or a fat feminism that worships pirates and dragons??
