in first period a girl got dress coded for wearing a tank top with a jacket over it and this scrawny little boy stood up and yelled “OH MY GOD SHE HAS SKIN THE SKIN IS TOO MUCH FOR ME HER SHOULDERS ARE BEAUTIFUL THIS IS TOO MUCH” and the teacher got so annoyed with him that she didn’t get to dress coding her

Yes.

Good.

You go, boy.

That one is going to accomplish things someday.  And marry happily.

2 Genderfluid Pansexuals and 3 kitties need help!

actual-dilf-erwin-smith:

Hi! themonkeywithakeyboard and I are both genderfluid pansexuals, and we’ve been together for nearly nine years. We have three gorgeous babies, seen here with themonkeywithakeyboard:

imageWe still need some help! We’re almost in the clear, but we’ve got to survive for 4 more weeks before we can be more or less self-sufficient again! 

Here’s what’s going on: we’ve both been looking for jobs for months. You guys know how the economy is, right? I’ve had interviews but no offers, themonkeywithakeyboard hasn’t even gotten an interview despite applying for over 80 positions just this month. Our only source of income has been eclipsicaljewelry (@storenvy), but now that we’ve used up my summer semester financial aid, this is no longer enough to keep us going!

What we need: We just need to survive for 4 more weeks until my fall financial comes in and I start a new job as a teacher’s assistant I am so excited you don’t even know! I was able to negotiate a little with the remaining companies we owe money to, and here’s what’s coming up:

  • AT&T: $89 due today or no internet until September (probably) which makes it really difficult to run my business: the only source of income we have! I also can’t order parts for commissions without it.
  • Vectren Gas: $180 due on 7/31 - this is the remainder of our old balance as well. :D Once paid we’re caught up!
  • T-Mobile: $125 due on 8/17, and I don’t think they’ll push it back for me again.
  • Gas for the car, money for toilet paper, medications, clean laundry, cat food, cat litter, and food (because hey, why should food stamps ever give a family enough to live on, amirite?)
  • My car is breaking again. I will probably take it back up there later today, after I eat lunch. I’ll have a concrete estimate then, but I think it’s my gas tank (again!). If so, that will be totally free labor and replacement. :D If not, well, at least I’ll know if it’s safe to drive to and from finals and if I need to come up with bus fare.

How you can help: There are quite a few ways!

  1. Reblog this post! The more people who see it, the more likely we are to get help! I’d at least do this much for any of you.
  2. Visit my Storenvy! Buy yourself a treat, or a gift for a friend or family member. Anyone who’s bought my jewelry will tell you that it is top quality, and my prices are extremely fair.
  3. Share a link to my Storenvy on your blog or other social networking sites.
  4. Donate to my PayPal. My PayPay email is rufustehshinra@yahoo.com. If all of my followers donated just $2, we’d be set for the month and even be able to get the cats their beloved canned food instead of just the dry stuff! 
  •  Anybody who donates $10 or more is going to get a free piece of jewelry when I get my financial aid. I mean it! I’ll email you and ask if you’d prefer earrings or a bracelet, and your favorite colors! If you donate $50 or more, it will be something bigger and better, like a necklace, or a piece of my soul.

So please consider helping! If we can make it through the month without getting anything turned off, then we’ll be able to use my financial aid for stuff we really need, like the cats’ annual vet visit, spoiling our sweet nephew over the holidays, saving up to move out of themonkeywithakeyboard's abusive mother's house, saving for our wedding, and saving up for a new car (because mine is old I really need to replace it). 

We’ve been fighting to get out of poverty for so long. I think we just need a little push here. If you can, please help. We’ll all appreciate it very much!

As a bonus, here is a picture of Zak, my three year old trouble-maker, wearing one of my newer pieces:image

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.

omg

this is terrifying
