why did i get in a conversation on fb with trans men about whether surgery is necessary to be trans
and that is why feminism needs to focus less on media representation and more on social/economic policies that damages women and children because you end up feminists who are more outraged about a woman whose cellulite is being mocked but not outraged about that same woman supporting a destructive regime that is literally kills women and children
Q:to be fair those job numbers are no doubt for america and it might be different in new zealand
hey, anon! i’m well aware this is true, but nz’s not in a great condition at the moment either! mostly that post was just depressing tbh
i’m at that awkward age where i should have had job experience but also i’m a bit young to hire without it. and that i’m disabled, and trans, and that anything i remotely can list as skills related to job stuff is mostly really queer or really related to sexual assault advocacy and i can’t put that stuff on my cv apparently
and the other stuff i’ve done is mostly religious stuff so i’ve long since burnt those bridges, and i’m having issues even finding references
i’m basically unhireable lmao i don’t have stable enough hands/etc for any sort of manual labour or even waitstaff work and i don’t have the quals for white collar work
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.
LAUGHS AND CRIES
In the News, Brown children matter when it is time to illustrate grief and suffering. The Brown bodies slaughtered and strewn on the streets of Chicago pepper our screens whenever CNN or the Nightly News decides to feature a segment on them. Yes, we want attention brought to these issues. But, can we do it in a way that respects the deceased? We do see White children on the screen when they go missing, or post-grief, when they have survived a trauma. And it’s usually a static photo from a happier time. In that context, images of White children are displayed with a consistency. To pull us in. To create empathy in our hearts. To keep us alert and on the lookout. White equals sympathy. What is the meaning of a deceased Brown child?
