Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
People from middle and upper middle class can say these things and get away. People who don’t know what starting capital is can say these things. People who literally don’t know what its like to have nothing or to live in poverty can say these things.
You can’t follow your dreams without some start up cash from somewhere. And most people don’t have that. Like if money was no object and people could just ~live their dreams~ then why are there children starving in 1st world nations
It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”
Actually reblogging again to add commentary:
"All you need is a house and food and a laptop".
And internet for the laptop. And electricity. And plumbing. And heat. And possibly has for your car. Oh and tabs and emissions if you have a car. Travel if you live away from family/friends or have a job that requires it but doesn’t pay for it.
And, hm, what else?
Medications. Doctor appointments. Replacement for things like canes and wheelchairs if they break and your insurance doesn’t cover it (oh, and if you’re self employed, you have to pay for insurance, too).
Not only is this super classist, it’s ableist as fuck.
I like how it goes from “you like knitting?” to “own a yarn shop!” like that’s something people can just do.
Between business licenses and registration, initial inventory, deposit and up-front payments for the commercial property lease, promotion and branding, and other startup costs, you’re looking at a minimum six-figure investment - and that’s assuming you already have the necessary contacts and skills to handle a small business startup all on your lonesome and can safely afford to gamble on pissing those six figures down the toilet when faced with the reality that two-thirds of small business startups fail within the first two years.
You know who can do all that?
People who already have money.
the university of illinois at urbana is trying to get surgery and hormone treatment for trans ppl included in their student health insurance but there’s some pushback from the board of trustees so if you have a moment please sign and signal boost the petition for its inclusion!
Anonymous asked: Now dacey shippers hate Danny because he doesn't tell Lacey the secret. They always hate anyone don't they.
There are some people who will find anything to hate someone. Some people just can never be happy.
And these are the same people that hated Lacey and Danny because they didn’t tell Jo they were hooking up. If that isn’t some hypocritical shit right here. One secret is way more important than the other. It wasn’t any of Jo’s business that Danny and Lacey were together, but I think more than PoorJo needs to know about what happened on that cliff. Smdh.
And for the record Team Janny, we don’t hate Danny. We want him to open up and tell Lacey what happened. Holding that in is destroying him. But that’s ok, because he shares a secret with your precious Jo. FOH!
I agree , ravenbabe, I love Danny. He is my favorite character. However, he is breaking apart keeping this inside. It is easier for Jo to think keeping it quiet is best as she wasn’t the one that killed her own father! She saw it but she didn’t do it and IT WAS HIS FATHER. He needs help. Probably professional help. But hey, as long as Jo and Danny are secret keepers for the sake of Janny, some Janny fans are squeeing over this! Seriously, the boy’s torment is not a happy thing just because he is keeping a secret with one of the two girls.Thank you Dawn. You said it better than I could. I love Danny too. I happen to love Lacey like 1% more though. LOL. I couldn’t ship them, love them and write stories about them if I didn’t love them both. We actually care about Danny. We want him to get this out. But Team Janny doesn’t care as long as Jo knows something that Lacey doesn’t. If they cared about Danny the way they care about Jo, they would want the same thing. They made so many excuses as to why Jo had the right to know about Danny and Lacey, yet none of them are wishing for Danny to say something about this bigger secret.
Once again, I agree. I love Lacey too. Probably like the opposite of how you do. Danny is 1 % more. LOL. But as you said, dacey fans love both characters. IF we hated Danny as was said, why in the world would we be for Dacey pairing. Smh.Exactly. I have to love both characters to ship. I love them both. We want Danny to get help and tell Lacey. She’s begging him to tell her. I’d hate to see Danny really go off the deep end because of this. Bottling emotions kills people.
I’m starting to understand the real failings of multi-cultural education growing up in K-12 schools. We gave everyone access to the “fun” parts of culture. Let’s sing the dreidel song! Now we understand the Jewish experience. Let’s talk about segregation. Wasn’t that wrong. Aren’t we glad it’s over? Let’s take turns reading parts of the “I Have a Dream” speech. We had access to the easy stuff without having to really examine the hard stuff. And we were giving easy access to things that aren’t “ours” and shouldn’t be “ours.” So you can’t just pick up the “fun” stuff and put it into your party theme or Facebook pictures. I’m using simple terms like fun because that’s how multiculturalism was given to us as children. And while it may have served a purpose at the time, it gave us too much access to claim things that aren’t ours.
I honestly, honestly think that is some of the reasons why the race parties are such a horrible fad on college campuses. They are carrying on what we did in elementary school. Let’s make culture a party! Everyone bring your cultural food and put on a costume! The racism is present and good percentage of the participants are really expressing deep rooted racism. But some truly don’t want to “understand why it’s wrong” when they are re-enacting what we used to do with culture in elementary schools. Culture was supposed to be fun. “I don’t understand why you are mad now? I thought culture was a party!” Party’s over kids. Put down the head-dress.
A 2007 Rhode Island study looked at 30 men and 30 women who had just had coronary-artery bypass surgery and tracked the medications they were given. The researchers were astonished to find that men got pain medications, while women got sedatives. With chronic pain problems, women’s symptoms are often minimized.
Judy Foreman, author of A Nation in Pain: Healing our Biggest Health Problem, looks at the prevalence of chronic pain and how we treat it differently in men and women. (via oupacademic)
I’m horrified but not astonished.
So with a man it’s like, “Aw, poor sweet baby, of course you’re in pain—here’s something for that.” And for a woman it’s, “No, but here’s something so you stop complaining about it.”
Not like women know ANYTHING about pain. Jesus. smh
YEAH. SO ASTONISHING.
