"Wal-Mart earned $27 billion in profit last year. They could afford to pay their bottom million workers $10,000 more a year, raise all of those people out of poverty, cost — save taxpayers billions of dollars, and still earn $17 billion in profit, right? It’s simply nuts that we have allowed this to happen. […] You know, this ridiculous idea that a worker on Wall Street who earns tens of millions of dollars a year securitizing imaginary assets or doing high-frequency trading is worth 1,000 times as much as workers who earn tens of thousands of dollars a year educating our children, growing or serving us our food, throwing themselves into harm’s away to protect our life or property, that this difference reflects the true value or intrinsic worth of these jobs is nonsense."

People say “professional”

when what they really mean is “not having visual/behavioral markers of being poor, disabled, or culturally ‘other’”

which effectively shuts out of professional careers the very people who are most likely to be in dire need of income

I see your bullshit

why are girls so cute like god damn curves and boobs and those legs and their hair and their skin and their voices and just like hot damn girls in thigh highs and maid outfits and oversized sweaters and messy hair and piercings and dresses
GIRLS

I read this, and then I look in the mirror and think ; I am obviously not one of those

do you identify as a girl
THEN YES YOU ARE APART OF THE CUTE PARADE 

What about guys?
