Ugh. Reading the people who side with phil robertsons comments and defending him make me so angry.
Most of them are just blind to the hatred cause they were raised that it’s okay to talk down on people that are inferior to them because the bible says it’s okay.
Because they agree with parts, segments, of the bible and it is the almighty rule maker.
Also I have some homophobic conservative relatives who like to being things like “well I was there when Jim Crow laws were there blah blah”
Oh you never saw a black person beaten, you didn’t hear about it among your other white friends? Well thumbs fucking up for you, that must mean it never happened.
This is what Phil Robertson said, about Pre-Civil Rights days …
On growing up in pre-civil-rights-era Louisiana
“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field…. They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”
I honestly, don’t see any “racist” remarks or anti-civil rights remarks, about talking of things, in his youth. He was only expressing, his experience … not anyone else’s.
"Just curious … How many of you were you even alive, before the Civil Rights Movement? Must tell you … Much of what you read today, is not always how it really was. History has been re-written, in many ways. I was alive before and during the Civil Rights Movement and supported it 100%, as I supported Martin Luther King!!! I can also tell you, in so many ways Martin Luther King is ‘rolling over in his grave’, over what is being done today, in his name."
Yeah, no. History just focuses on the bad parts, because they happened, and it’s important to acknowledge the lessons.
Excuse me for being born later in time. So my opinions mean nothing. She does this everyone. Like when we were taking about equal rights and she brought up “I was a nurse when aids was still being figured out and it was all gay men who had it.”
What the dick, wash your fucking mouth out with soap.
Single story experiences.
reasons to let me cuddle you:
- I will stick my cold hands all over your body
- I’ll probably fall asleep on you and make cute sleep noises
- I can lay there long enough for the second coming of christ
- I will be smiling the whole time
- you’re warm and I’m not
- let me leech your heat
Apparently I’ve done something right cause I’m back down to 131 pounds. Lost like 5 lbs.
Already sick of salads. I know that’s not the only healthy thing you can eat but it’s kinda cheaper and quicker than other options. Haha
I’ve done many different kinds of sex work. I’ve been a cam girl, a porn performer, a professional sub, and a performer at a peep show (similar to a stripper). I’ve also been working in retail and food service simultaneously.
I get so frustrated at how I’m treated at work. It really gets to me. I find myself involuntarily crying once I get into my car to drive home. I hate how dehumanizing it is. People don’t acknowledge me as a person. They think I’m less than them because of my job. Maybe they don’t actively think that, but that’s how they treat me. Oh, by the way, I’m talking about the food service job.
When I’m doing sex work I can refuse a customer. I can be rude to them if they are being rude to me. I don’t have to apologize for their mistakes. I don’t have to be sweet when they are being inappropriate. I negotiate my limits, and I only do what I feel comfortable doing. They don’t get to order off the menu, I’m not going to bend over backwards for them.
I find it oppressive to work for minimum wage. I find it oppressive to act like the customer is always right. I find it dehumanizing to apologize for things that aren’t my fault, like how much something costs or if you order something wrong and you want it remade the correct way. I find it dehumanizing to say “Hi! How are you?” and in response get “Yeah I just need a blah blah blah” and then have a customer go back to their cell phone conversation. I hate being reduced to a cash register.
Reblogging this again because IT’S JUST SO GOOD
I’ve said this so much in my life that it’s ridiculous!
My refusal to go back into food service is what led me to dancing & led me to forever say that I’ve never felt more respected at a job than when I’m dancing.
