    "You can’t just start the clock on 9/11 and forget 50 years of unjust oppressive Western foreign policies in the Middle East." -

    Medhi Hasan

    Thank God someone finally said this. I’m so sick of stating that Western intervention and invasion of other countries fuels terrorism only for people to respond 'They did 9/11 first!' 

    In 1953 the UK & the US staged a coup of the democratically elected leader of Iran and installed a dictator who was more to their liking. Today the US continues to support brutal dictators (such as in Saudi Arabia) where it suits them to do so. Palestine has been occupied for decades. The list of Western imperial foreign policies over the past decades could go on and on.

    9/11 was not only only a result religious extremism and it certainly was not because 'they hate our freedoms.' Terrorism is often primarily politically motivated and anyone who is serious about preventing it had better take some fucking notice of this fact.

    If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

    Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

    Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

    On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

    If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

    Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown  

     

    yep, without the internet we’d be back in the dark ages of 25 years ago. How would humanity survive?

    I need the internet to use art blogs and websites to promote and sell my prints and commissions.

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

my favorite part about working with the birds of prey at the museum I interned at was when the vet would come in and wrap them up in to burritos to weigh them and clip their talons

    This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because 
    1. I wasn’t
    2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional 
    3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
    4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him

    That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.

    One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.

    When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”

    And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.

    Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.

    So yesterday something that perfectly illustrates this happened. I work at a fast food place and this guy comes in at 7am on a Sunday, still probably drunk from the night before, and when I smiled and said goodmorning he said “Did you just say that because you’re being paid to say that?” 

    I repressed my urge to sarcastically answer, and said “Nope, I just enjoy saying hi to everyone!” To which he responded, “Oh, so you weren’t flirting with me then.”

    Dude, I’m not flirting with your gross 7am-on-a-Sunday-ass, trust me.

    My defense mechanism when I’m uncomfortable at work is to smile, so I did that and said “Is there anything I can get you this morning?” to which he responded,

    "There, you just smiled! What does that mean?"

    At this point I was fed up, so I said, 

    "I smile at everyone sir, its just what I do. What can I get you, coffee, a bagel?"

    And he said “I’m gonna be watching to see if you smile at everyone. I don’t like it when girls lie to me” and then ordered a coffee and a muffin like he hadn’t just said something at 11 on the “Is this guy a serial rapist” scale (where 0 is ‘no’ and 10 is ‘Yes, run away as fast as you can right now.”).

    Then he sat there for another hour and a half, staring at me from his table. When he got up and left he came back to the counter, and said “You do smile at everyone. That’s fucked up.” and walked out.

    I can’t even be innocuously polite and pleasant to people at my job (where customer service is the number one thing we are supposed to be focusing on) for fear of this shit happening. What happens if he had decided to wait until my shift was over? 

    New Rule: If she’s at work, SHE’S NOT FLIRTING WITH YOU.

    Duuuude I was training mother fuckers at my old job and I had at least three dudes hit on me. One accused me that I wasn’t really married because I didn’t wear a ring. One of them knew I was married but just wanted to inform me that he liked me.

    The least creepy dude? The one that was actually pretty cool and respectful (That I found out later everyone THOUGHT I was flirting with because I was being friendly?) just said “Damn.” when he found out I was married. It literally flew right over my head. He was embarrassed about it, I completely didn’t even get why he said damn. To me, I was just talking to my bro at work about shit. To him, a girl he thought was flirting with him just laid it out that she was married.

    Please. Please. Please. Clarify if a girl is interested in you. If she says she wasn’t flirting? DON’T FUCKING ACT LIKE SHE’S LYING. WHEN YOU DO THAT YOU LITERALLY JUST INSULTED THE FUCKING PERSON WHY WOULD THEY WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH YOU AFTER THAT?

    Just ugh *flips tables* Teach your kids this shit.
