Read the child labor laws last night for children who are 14/15.
Uh, who is following these laws?
Did you know on school days they can only work for 3 hours?
Did you know that in the summer they can’t work past 9pm?
A McDonalds hamburger costs $2.09 at the register. McDonalds internal documents show that the raw materials (patty, bun, etc.) cost $0.34. A McDonalds employee makes $11/hr on average with a shift manager making $15/hr. Shifts are 8 people on average. That means McDonalds pays
"...what Mr. Awes said in this sermon is not fringe. It’s not the belief of an off-shoot Christian cult. This psychopathic statement is the result of what is being taught in churches all over America, specifically protestant/evangelical churches."
Hey y’all. I’ve been feeling this push for a long time, and today, I’ve had it.
I’m out. The deconstruction space doesn’t care about your lived experience anymore than the church does.
Again, I’ll point you to @RFRorg.
For now, I’m logging off.
It’s a challenge to raise boys to not want to throw punches on the playground.
Their instinct is to solve it with their hands. I’m constantly trying to teach them other ways to solve conflict that won’t put them in jail when they’re older.
This is a teachable moment. 2/2
After school, I will be talking with my boys about the Will smith/Chris Rock situation.
We will discuss the harm of making fun of people with or without disabilities, and we will discuss the criminal behavior of solving conflict with violence.
People go to jail for that.
Dear white women who are DV survivors or who are currently in that situation where the system does not protect you, and honestly, it’s a joke, I see you.
These conversations today are triggering, take care of yourself.
I think the will smith situation made many of us feel uncomfortable because it was an angry, impulsive reaction, whether deserved or not.
Angry, impulsive men will always make me feel uncomfortable because my body remembers.
I believe this is because there are no gatekeepers. No influencers. No one’s trying to make a name for themselves.
Also, volunteers are trained to meet you where you are and to listen without giving advice that should come from a professional.
The resources are amazing too.
I will always recommend @RFRorg if you need support in leaving/doubting religion. There are no paywalls, no club of any kid, and no pressure to adhere to anything.
I’ve never had an ounce of drama in that organization, only support.
8 years ago, a wrong number texted me and we just played along. We met up to grab a drink and fell in love. After dating for 2 years, we moved in together. One day, I came home to a beautiful bouquet of flowers and him on the bed fucking my Pilates instructor. This isn't us.
I endeavor to be a pre-human conscious being like nature, yet with the wisdom of having human consciousness.
To be able to exist in that space is overcoming the world, like Jesus talked about.
True liberation. Enlightenment.
I don't get the beef that so many have against atheists. Sure, some can be abrasive but so can anyone. We're not starting wars in the name of religion or trying to force anyone to think like us. We just want to live and not have your faith imposed on us. Is that asking too much?
Reading the comments confirms everything I have come to accept about what white evangelicalism is about.
Y’all, don’t stress…the masks have been taken off and we don’t have to do a thing.
They’re crumbling the the walls themselves. twitter.com/JackieHillPerr…
reading the replies to jackie hill perry’s post, hard not to come to the conclusion that if the arc of history does bend towards justice, white evangelicals have collectively decided they want no part in it. actively moving backwards. total clown show.
It’s not tainted for me. She wrote an amazing story that was born from the inner divinity that exists in us all.
Her bigotry is born from her ego which is separate from the artist within. twitter.com/tweetjjtweet/s…
“You shouldn’t talk about religion and politics”
No. Those are two very important things that we all should absolutely talk about. You just don’t want to talk about them because it makes you feel uncomfortable.
Everyone knows a person in the LGBTQ community in an intimate way, whether it’s a family member, an old friend, a co-worker, and we are watching as people who supposedly love us continue to stay silent on these attacks from republicans, and continue to vote for these people.
Gender is impossible to define because it goes beyond mere physical anatomy.
I don’t get why republicans can’t understand this especially when most of them are Christians who learned that the body is of dust and our spirit is what matters.
Do not rely on payment alerts. I received one last month from DISCOVER CARD, and no alert this month, so I was a day late. They did credit the fee.
This is so sus and to me it screams on purpose to get late fees.
Setting up auto pay because it’s the only way with these banks.
As the threat of nuclear war grows so too does the importance of really being here now, really living our lives with deep presence and gratitude. The only thing worse than all of this ending would be if it ended without having been fully seen and appreciated while it lasted.
The more we attack that identity via critiquing it, the more attached they are because to them, they are the beliefs. The beliefs are their sense of self.
A better way is to teach that we are more than our religious/political identity.
When you know this, empathy is imminent,
