places that are like “hey upload your resume” and then make you fill out a painfully detailed employment history regardless
One of my favorite things about the United States is how it treats higher ed. On the one hand, you raise kids from the moment they’re in kindergarten to fetishize a college education and vilify those who don’t aspire to one as lazy or incompetent. Then when you show up and realize that it’s too expensive for you and you need to take out loans to get one (because you don’t want to be one of the lazy/incompetent kids you were raised to believe in), you’re blamed for being lazy or incompetent anyway for not being independently wealthy. Now, part of that fetishization includes the mantra, “doesn’t matter what you major in; it’ll work out just do it,” so now that it isn’t working out, you’re blamed for having gotten a college education in the first place, for getting a “useless major” or some such nonsense.
But god help you if you put that “useless major” to use and point out the inefficiencies of the capitalist regime that extorts you to pursue a degree via shame and guilt or fear of poverty. Because once you put your degree to use to criticize our economic system and the social habits it engenders, Americans will mock you for your “liberal arts degree” doing you no good.
And that’s what freedom’s all about.
if u think my constant vocal feminism is annoying imagine how annoying the patriarchy is to me
“Kids can’t learn about sexuality and gender because it’s too scary or confusing for them” yeah because YOU told them they there are ONLY straight men and straight women from the age of three and then used that limited scope as an excuse to carry on dodging the subject.
I found the seven times table scary and confusing but I still had to do about 20 exams about it
when straight guys ask how lesbian sex works i feel really bad for their girlfriends because if you dont understand how to have sex with a girl in any way other than repeatedly putting your dick in her you are having some really bad sex
“White History month” would involve having someone shout “you’ve done so many terrible things in the past and you’re continuing to do them” in your face for the duration of the month, with the occasional “you genuinely used to think Eminem was a genius in high school”
it’s kinda funny how when you get older you start to enjoy the things you hated as a kid like taking naps and getting spanked
the second one was kind of unexpected
but no one is disagreeing

This girl was smart as a whip. When I walked by, she was MOVING to the music—hands up, head nodding, shoulders swinging. I really wanted to take her photo, so I walked up to the nearest adult and asked: “Does she belong to you?”
Suddenly, the music stopped, and I heard: “I BELONG TO MYSELF.”
