There is so much that is worthwhile.
Cleaning up the hard drive today and found this series of photos… our LEGENDARY TOXIC TOY JARS.
We threw a bunch of jelly toys (vibrators, dildos and masturbation sleeves) into some glass jars, sealed them, and then just left them alone. This is what happened.
See all that clear fluid at the bottom? That’s the product of the ongoing chemical reaction that happens when PVC and phthalates (or other toxic plasticizing chemicals) hang out inside a jelly toy.
These toys off-gassed and slimed themselves and their jar-mates, swapping plasticizers and deteriorating even more.
Jelly toys are not body safe. Please feel free to share these photos far and wide!
ps These jars got so scary, we had to throw them away a couple of years ago. RIP, jelly toys. RIP.
"It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”"
thats exactly what bothers me about “forget money follow your dreams” like lol ok poor people just stop being poor and do things start a business
just acknowledge we live in a capitalist society and that following a dream isn’t achievable for everyone like. be real. i’m a positive person but i’m not full of illusions about how things work.
you know what’s cool about the hunger games?
they take a lot of effort to show that a revolution, that political change, isn’t just ONE PERSON being a messiah. It takes so many people to bring about the momentum behind Katniss. Everyone around her is involved in that discussion, most of the time, even more than she is.
Boarding schools used Native appropriation to embarrass, degrade & exercise control over Native children. Native appropriation is an extension of the federal government’s assimilation and termination policies to ‘kill the Indian and save the man.’
grossThose nuns’ smug faces contrasted against the children’s. It breaks me.
In case anyone was wondering why this post isn’t so much funny as it is just horrifyingly true
Or kind of like how I spent probably like 2000 bucks so white men could teach me the history of my own fucking people
Or how I had to explain to my own fucking white sister why it wasn’t okay for her to make money dressed up like an “Indian Princess”
Or how my white ex-in-laws fucking accused me of being a pothead for smudging my fucking room and used that for grounds to kick me out (with no other place to go), which was traumatic enough that I never fucking did it again
Or how last week at work I had someone literally tell me they thought addiction to tobacco was Native American’s “revenge” for genocide, because we’re extinct now or almost because “you don’t see a lot of them these days”, and killing “us” with cigarettes is “their” revenge
This photo is a picture of what it feels like to be a ghost
A fucking ghost in your own native land.
