Hehe equality right?

Do you not understand the purpose of this, or why the prices are what they are? Does this need to be explained to you?

Oh yea right, the famous “wage gap” between men and women that has been debunked tons of times! That sure is the right argument to fight sexism with!

Not debunked, misrepresented, as it is a complicated issue. It’s honestly more accurate to call it a PAY gap than a WAGE gap, since there are a myriad of factors at play here. Women DO, on average, make less money than men. That is indisputable, and the margins widen when you include factors of race, disability, and sexuality. 
Here’s a good starter resource on it. 
IF you would like some more in depth reading:
This one is from Stanford about the Gender Pay Gap
This is a New York Times article looking at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s report on the topic.
This one is from the International Trade Union Confederation 
This one is from Oxford, titled Up the Down Staircase: Women’s Upward Mobility and the Wage Penalty for Occupational Feminization
You can also look at the US Census’s look at the Pay Gap
Or the Institute for Women’s Policy Research
Even the United States Government Accountability Office has some information on it.
So yes, the bake sale above is a pretty simplistic little stunt about a complicated economic and social issue. But the fact that it pisses people off sort of makes its point for it. 

Excellent primary sources for those concerned about sex based oppression/ how men continually benefit from female subjugation also I would really like one of those Vegan cupcakes

Those are some good sources o:

i want

  • affection 

i have absolutely no idea what to do with and am pretty much uncomfortable with and confused by

  • affection

oh hey, a very accurate way to describe how i feel about (physical) affection

(it’s okay to give me physical affection even if I’m uncomfortable btw because it doesn’t hurt me and I want to get more comfortable with it!!! pretty much if i know you you don’t have ask me if it’s okay JUST DO IT)

A Short Halloween PSA

tearlessrain:

Hey the thing I reblogged earlier reminded me to mention this:

I can promise all my followers that I do notpost or reblog jump scares, ever, because A) I don’t like them and they suck, and B) I know at least a few of my followers have anxiety in one form or another and I’m not going to be that jerk.

So yes. There will be no jump scares from this blog, just wanted to ease your minds preemptively.

muffinsticks said: I was under the impression that Hispanic meant like Mexican? IDK what i meant was that you dont look Mexican. You definitely look Spanish. But like a lot of mexicans look predominantly spanish, since that area was conquered by spain. So yeah you might be technically mexican even though you look spanish

Hispanic seems to be a very vague term apparently? I googled it after when I made my first response to you ‘cause I was curious myself what it meant exactly

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hispanic

But yeah, now that i know what you meant that makes more sense hahaha. I’m not sure if I look very Mexican, and my mom is very adamant about us being of Spanish descent so idk, i’m leaning more toward me being Spanish and not Mexican.

airyulevelsup said: I have almost the opposite problem. I have never really related to being Indian, so checking off the Asian or south Asian boxes never felt right to me.

I’m not entirely sure what your background is exactly, but I’ve read before that sometimes 1st or 2nd generation children of those who immigrated to America tend to not feel connect or related to their heritage. Like… “American” became their culture i guess?? IDK!!! It’s interesting how we have similar but opposite problems. Tbh, at this point I don’t even know what to check. I just check Caucasian just cause it’s easy heh

muffinsticks said: You don’t look hispanic at all haha

That’s funny that you say that because you’ve told me quite the opposite before?? hahaha I remember talking about how my mom says we’re from Spain and you said that you could see that and that I have features of someone of Spaniard heritage.

Old Scooby Doo Frames KILL ME

It was always the fact they had no whites in their eyes that I hated

matching icons for you and your friends

Sometimes i think about how i used to check the “Hispanic” box under ethnicity as a kid. I stopped around senior year in high school. I used to be very proud of that part of me, but somewhere in time I felt disconnected and felt like my skin was too light for me to be allowed to check that box anymore. I feel too much like a “mutt” I guess.

idkkkkk, sometimes i wish i knew more about myself lineage wise. My dad’s family is a mix of irish and something else?? And my Mom and Grandma can’t even agree if we’re from Mexico or Spain.

Sometimes I get kinda distraught over this hahaa

"Vancouver School Board Introduces Gender-Neutral Pronouns"

"Students and teachers in Vancouver can now use the gender-neutral pronouns "xe," "xem," and "xyr." The move is designed to accommodate students for whom "he" and "she" does not fit or is deemed inappropriate…
"The newly coined pronouns — xe, xem, and xyr — are pronounced to rhyme with the genderless plurals "they," "them," and "their," and all starting with the "z" sound. So phonetically speaking, they’re pronounced "zey, "zem", and "zare.""

the article doesn’t do the issue justice.
the issue regarded policy change, where the vancouver school board’s (VSB) LGBTQ+ advisory committee re-wrote existing policy to protect staff and students falling on the queer and trans spectrums. 
the policy revision includes
-they/them/their and non-traditional pronouns being recognized by the school system
-required used of preferred names and pronouns by all staff and students
-preferred names/pronouns on all school records
-gender-accesible washrooms and change rooms available to those who require them
-disciplinary action taken against those who act in a discriminatory or hateful manner towards students, staff, and families falling on the queer and trans spectrums
—————-
the consultation was the longest ever done by the VSB, with over 120 speakers spread across 3 meetings. 
the process also resulting in two school board trustees being ejected form their party’s caucus, due their discriminatory actions and arguments.

Aaaaahhh, this is pretty much the pronouns I’ve thought of using for myself before!! I actually spelled them exactly how they sounded to me, though. I can deal with them being spelled with an x. Thinking about it now, x does look kinda cooler??
Anyways, this is really cool uwu It would be nice if this caught on outside of the school!
