If you think it’s unacceptable to spend your Saturday morning lying in bed, tending a hangover with liberal doses of cold pizza, and finishing your rewatch of Arrested Development, then I don’t understand your life choices.

How the Logic of "Friendzoning" Would Work If...
*Man walks into a store and finds employee*
Man: Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!
Employee: Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?
Man: I never filled out an application.
Employee: Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.
Man: No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!
Employee: Well, but that doesn't-
Man: AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!
Employee: But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.
Man: OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!
Employee: Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?
Man: Well no, but what does that matter?
Employee: ...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.
Man: Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.
Employee: That...doesn't make any sense.
Man: NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
Man: Fuck you, slut.
Emmy Cicierega: Internet haters & anonymity →
emmyc: I noticed a lot of people getting a lot of anonymous/general hater crap lately! I guess springtime brings out the intensity of jerks The best thing you can ever do on any website is turn anonymous comments off. “Don’t feed the trolls” is probably the hardest internet advice to follow, but the… TRUEST OF FACTS
Well, this is breathtakingly horrible. →
This reads like someone just expanded on “Derailing for Dummies” (mirror) which they believed was a serious series of arguments. WHICH LOL. If you really want to excel as a Privileged Person® you need to learn to value data, statistics, research studies and empirical evidence above all things, but especiallyabove Lived Experience©.

queer fashion tactics
sc0rnflakes: fuckdudeskilldudes: if i’ve said it once i’ve said it a hundred times: lube is pretty much identical to anti-frizz serum Youtube is chock full of curly/natural hair vloggers reviewing lube as a hair product. Well many lubes do advertise that they’re “never greasy”. Now *I* am curious. I did get a bunch of free sample during Pride…
Speaking up. →
programmersbeingdicks: Sarah Parmenter: It’s with great sadness I have to speak up about something. I’m not sad myself, nor am I particularly hurt – but being scared into silence is not an option. The reason I’m sad is that the person involved with what I’m about to speak up about, could be a member of our community. Infact at the moment, everything is pointing to the fact they are. They are...

After all my years of searching, I have found a high impact, large-cupped sports bra that both fits my weird tiny ribcage AND bust. And, most gloriously, it actually WORKS. I spent the evening last hopping around my apartment testing it out. IT IS AMAZING. Can you imagine? I can actually run… without worrying about knocking myself out. Some of you may see this as an overreaction, but it...

dribbble: We’ve just updated our Terms of Service and Player’s Handbook with new rules and guidelines as to what constitutes appropriate content at Dribbble. Historically, Dribbble has been a relatively open publishing platform. It’s self-organizing in the sense that members can create their own… YAY! No more weird T&A “designs” (hopefully).
How Are You I'm Fine Thanks: I worry sometimes... →
gingerhaze: I worry sometimes that I’m so fixated on theater/road/general etiquette that minor annoyances like someone texting in the theater beside me/clogging up the passing lane/being a loud and inconsiderate neighbor can bug me so much as to drive me almost crazy. I guess it’s just that I can’t stand… This is me, and it kills me. Nearly lost my mind when my previous neighbor left...

sc0rnflakes: Like, “Vancouver sucks at snow” gets repeated so often we might as well add it to the national anthem, but come on guys. It still snows at least a couple of times every winter. Are we still not putting seasonally appropriate tires on buses? Are we still not designing bridges while keeping in mind… This, SO MUCH. Though it is terribly amusing to watch everyone poop...
One of my coworkers has just rented a new apartment, and it’s super nice because he’s got S.O. and they can combine their funds to get such a thing. Not that my apartment isn’t nice, but it still makes me want to shack up with some dude (who is similarly ballin’ like me) so we can combine our incomes and live in luxury. Also, companionship I guess, but I already have a...
Conversation I had while at work today.
Me: So what do you want to be for Halloween?
Little Girl: I think I should be Thor.
Her Mother: You know Thor's a boy right?
Little Girl: Yeah and I'm a girl and I want to be Thor.
Her Mother: Don't you want to be something pretty?
Little Girl: Thor is pretty.
Women, men and feminist works part 3: Sailor Moon...
adventuresofcomicbookghoul: You know I have to ramble about Sailor Moon. I actively adore both the anime and the manga and think both have their place in my dorky shrine of excellent inspiring tales about ladies. But I think it was correct of Naoko to note when asked about the difference between the manga and the anime that her story is a story by a woman, about women, and for women and that...
