Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.
When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.
We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?

You guys please reblog this and spread this like wildfire. This is where I live and I would hate to see the trans people of my state not be abLE TO FUCKING PISS BECAUSE OF THE GENDER THEY IDENTIFY WITH

I’ll be updating soon with coverage of tonight’s Ferguson town hall, but let me just start by saying that while this meeting was going on, police without name badges were checking license plates in the parking lot. For a town with 34,000 warrents and 21,000 people, this is some BULLSHIT.

You know what I love? Seeing a picture of a male/female couple (or a couple that’s received as such) in pride gear and then seeing comments screeching about how it should be a picture of a “real gay couple.” Because multisexual, asexual, aromantic, transgender and countless other people don’t exist in the movement and aren’t allowed to celebrate pride, apparently.

Love the constant reminder from my community that I don’t count. Love it.

Why would anyone complain about what poor people spend their money on.

Have you seen what rich people spend their money on?

Being an adult is realizing that $5,000 is a lot of money to owe and very little money to own.

Accurate post is accurate.

Reminds me of the time a lady told me whip doesn’t melt. Or a guy yelled at me for not understanding him/hearing him because he kept talking on the phone

Lame

For those in retail.

I worked in a Lil Caesars and a woman came in and wanted a sausage pizza with no sausage, but got mad when she was given a cheese pizza.

So when I worked at fitting room in Old Navy, a woman told me that a medium top was too small, and that the large top was too large. So she asked me to find her an “x-medium”. Old Navy carries x-small, small, medium, large, x-large, 1x, 2x and 3x. There is no “x-medium”. But she insisted, so I went and found her an “x-medium” (which was just a medium in a different color but the same top, same make, same EVERYTHING) and she goes very happily, “THIS! THIS FITS ME PERFECTLY! THANK YOU SO MUCH! See, you can do anything you can set your mind to!”

I’m a waitress at a big fancy resort, and once a woman asked me for a diet water and when I told her there was no such thing she demanded to see my manager (who then also promptly told her there was no such thing and brought her regular water).Another occasion of stupidity occurred when a woman had been brought a steak cooked too much for her liking. I offered to take it back and bring her out a new one, cooked a little less, and she said “NO this one’s fine I just want you to cook THIS one a little less.” I then had to get the chef and have him explain why you can’t UNCOOK a steak.

When I was working at dunkin donuts there was this woman in the drive-thru who asked for a lightly toasted croissant and then started complaining that the croissant was warm. And wanted her money back, so she gave me the croissant back and I gave her the money and then she tells me “now i want my new croissant” she wanted a new one for free and as she was screaming at me this guy in a biker gang covered in tattoos leans over the counter in the store and yells “ma’am let me just tell you what we’re all thinking. fuck off, you stupid ****.” I couldn’t stop laughing and she drove away in anger.

Most of the people like in the stories above know that they’re being totally irrational, but also know that if they complain enough they’ll most likely get something free or discounted. So really most of the the nonsensical fucks are actually just cheap fucks with no shame or respect for people.

That last bit of commentary though.


We had this dick come into Starbucks one day and tell us about he had bought an *entire* pumpkin loaf (those things we sell by the slice for like $2.50) in another city, three hours away from us—a *month* ago—and found a hair in it. SUPER pissed about it. Did not, of course, have either the pumpkin loaf or the receipt in question, and was legit yelling from the moment he came in.Got my store manager, who just was straight-up like—“I’m not sure what you’re wanting from us?” Offered him a free drink and he stormed out, screaming about what assholes we were.People are such dicks to food-service and customer service workers.

James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.

From the film’s IndieGo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

You know all those times on tumblr when someone proposes some really cool subversive version of established story-telling tropes or AU? And then we’re all like, “I’d go see that.”

This one we could ACTUALLY go see. Just sayin’.
