Bullseye. Corporations get a tax credit for offering health care. You then don’t get to make exceptions in the insurance. You give back the tax credit or STFU.
Continuation of the same insufferable sexist rant.
WHAT. THE. HELL.I wonder how many men who complain about women working also complain about women being gold diggers?
When it comes to “domestic violence,” even pushing or grabbing can be sufficient to bar gun possession, the U.S. Supreme Court concluded.
They did something right
OH My GOD!! I thought there was no way for this to be real. This is so wonderful!!!!!!!!
It’s about time that the SCOTUS got something right!
I don’t think people understand what a HUGE step forward this is.
- Guns increase the probability of death in incidents of domestic violence.1
- Firearms were used to kill more than two-thirds of spouse and ex-spouse homicide victims between 1990 and 2005.2
- Domestic violence assaults involving a firearm are 12 times more likely to result in death than those involving other weapons or bodily force.3
- Abused women are five times more likely to be killed by their abuser if the abuser owns a firearm.4
- A recent survey of female domestic violence shelter residents in California found that more than one third (36.7%) reported having been threatened or harmed with a firearm.5 In nearly two thirds (64.5%) of the households that contained a firearm, the intimate partner had used the firearm against the victim, usually threatening to shoot or kill the victim.6
- Laws that prohibit the purchase of a firearm by a person subject to a domestic violence restraining order are associated with a reduction in the number of intimate partner homicides.7
Fact: 5.3 million African American men are denied the right to vote based on a past felony conviction.
That means more than 13% of the general African American population (39 mil) and 28% of the male African American population (18.5 mil) are prohibited from voting.
Felony Disenfranchisement is highest in the former slave states and states with a history of civil rights violations like Florida and North Carolina. Today’s red states—particularly in the bible belt—where the Republican voting base is strongest, appear to have vested racist and political interests in permanently separating Black people from their right to vote.
This link provides information on each state’s voting laws for those with a felony record.
Notice the number of times this hasn’t been reblogged. Just continue to turn that blind eye.
"Famous from a sex tape"
More like rich from someone leaking her sex tape against her will and then famous because of all the money she made from the lawsuit and her tv show? And all her other smart business decisions? Sit your bitter ass down
NO MORE ANON, CRAZIES
Anonymous asked: Um okay okay, so what you're all of a sudden aware of this then? …I mean if you've worked in the industry surely you've been exposed to those sayings before then? Why now all of a sudden make a shoutout about it? And fyi, Meryl is a very private person , I doubt she would walk around spreading this around to people in the "industry" herself.
No, she doesn’t, but nothing stays a secret for very long in this business. I just became aware of it, yes, because I am relatively new to this industry, but I didn’t read it on tumblr or learn about it through some gossip magazine. I learned it through people I’ve met and worked with and continue to work with. And you can decide what to do with that information — believe it, ignore it, get mad, etc. I don’t care.

Anonymous asked: Ok so if it's not "a rumor" or a "bad" thing you have heard then why are you going on about how it's so awful if you're a strummer fan etc etc. The things that you're saying are the exact same ones as the things people who have been spreading around this same rumor for ages have been saying so I don't get why you're doing this.
I didn’t say AWFUL. I said strummers would SHIT THEMSELVES. Sometimes things are shocking and it doesn’t make them good or bad.
AND FOR THE LAST TIME: It’s not a rumor. I work in the industry. You can believe it or not, I really don’t care.
Anonymous asked: it's none of your god damn business about Meryl's marriage! you don't know her and NEVER will. stay out of what doesn't concern you.
If you read what you just wrote as if it was about you it would be 100x more accurate.
Text (would be legible on actual shirt):
You have no problem with the gender wage gap. But you hate having to pay for dates.
You insist that it’s a scientifically proven fact that men are stronger than women. But you complain about society believing that it’s worse for a man to hit a woman than for a woman to hit a man.
You believe that the age of consent is unfair and that there’s nothing wrong with having sex with teenage girls. But when you find out that a teenage girl enjoys sex, you believe she’s the biggest slut in the world.
You hate when a woman automatically assumes that a man is a douchebag before getting to know him. But when you like a woman who likes another man, you assume he’s a douchebag just because he’s not you.
You believe that if women want equality, they should be drafted into the military. But you also believe that the military is not a place for women.
You hate when women assume that men are like wild animals. But you believe that a woman who doesn’t cover up and make herself invisible to men is just like someone wearing a meat suit around wild animals.
You hate the fact that men are bullied for not conforming to their male gender roles. But when you find out that a man disagrees with your beliefs about women’s rights, your immediate response is to try to emasculate him by comparing him to a woman as an insult.
You hate when women assume that there are no nice guys. But you call yourself a nice guy and act like it’s a rare quality that should cause women to be all over you.
You hate when women assume that men just want to get laid. But when you find out that a man is a feminist, you assume that he’s just doing it to get laid.
You hate when women make generalizations about all men. But when a woman calls you out for being sexist, you claim that all men think like you.
You insist that women should be responsible for protecting themselves from being raped. But when they follow the one piece of advice that actually works, which is being aware of red flags, you complain about them assuming that all men are rapists.
This is too fantastic.
