rose, new philly resident: stupid things on the internet, and not stupid things on the internet




not exactly the horse capital of the US


We mustn’t forget the nannies, housecleaners, and other under-represented and undervalued women workers - whose protections are so few and their burdens so many. 


I intern at a place in Atlanta that prints a wide variety of things. This is what we printed today, this is real.

That’s it, I’m getting married as soon as possible


public school dress code


Sometimes when I feel bad about my body I look at the nude portraits of women in Renaissance art and recognize that looking like this isn’t bad considering someone spent years perfecting a painting of a woman with my body type and the fact that that artwork is widely appreciated for hundreds of years.

"By keeping us focused on ourselves and our individual happiness, “Do what you love” distracts us from the working conditions of others while validating our own choices and relieving us from obligations to all who labor, whether or not they love it. It is the secret handshake of the privileged and a worldview that disguises its elitism as noble self-betterment. According to this way of thinking, labor is not something one does for compensation, but an act of self-love. If profit doesn’t happen to follow, it is because the worker’s passion and determination were insufficient. Its real achievement is making workers believe their labor serves the self and not the marketplace."
