Fun fact: if you approach an employee and insist that they go ‘check the back’ for an item that’s not on the shelf, there is a 90% chance that they’ll go to the back room, scratch their ass and check their text messages for five minutes, and come back out with a sympathetic smile and a ‘Sorry!’ because they know without even looking that the stock isn’t there.

Or the old “can you ask a manager?”

TUMBLR PROF ANNOUNCEMENT: If you are trans or nonbinary and you are in the same situation as the student above, email your professors before class starts. I understand that it might be uncomfortable, but generally professors are absolutely happy to accommodate you. I know I always will be!
If your professor does not respond positively, contact the Dean or the campus LGBT+ resource center with a copy of the email and show them that you are concerned about gender discrimination in the classroom. 

Also this is a link to the template I used to write this email, and I’ve seen another similar template going around, and this was extremely helpful.

just a reminder that this is an option for you folks! i did it and all my teachers replied within a few hours saying that it was okay. you can do this! school does not have to be painful.

They need to go after the camera man too, EVERY TIME. That’s when this dumb shit will stop. 

I want someone to beat the absolute fuck out of them.

What the fuck. It’s just a fucking pair if shoes. He bopped the damn shoes. Why they throwin fists over a fuckin boop. Maybe tell them to back the hell up and not try it again, but what the fuck.

"It’s just a fucking pair if shoes."

True but if I worked hard to make my money to buy myself a pair of shoes and your dumbass comes along and steps on them as a “joke” you gotdamn right I’m gonna be pissed about it.

"Maybe tell them to back the hell up and not try it again"

They purposely stepped on their shoes. Mind you, Jordans are not cheap. People take pride in what they wear. But ultimately it’s a matter of respect. These white kids are disrespectful.

These “_______ in the hood” videos are made to provoke black people into acting out for cheap laughs and youtube views. It gives white america a reason to laugh at us and call us animals. They make these videos to make us as a people look bad. 

They deserved every one of those licks.

Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons. It’s been so difficult for people to envision women’s historical contributions as solely getting married and dying in childbirth, but you can’t argue with numbers—and fifty/fifty is pretty damn good. The presence of female warriors also has researchers now wondering just how accurate the stereotypes of raping and pillaging actually are: Women may have accompanied male Vikings in those early invasions of England, in much greater numbers than scholars earlier supposed, (Researcher) McLeod concludes. Rather than the ravaging rovers of legend, the Vikings arrived as marriage-minded colonists.
