For the people on my flist who do arty crafty things:
Hobby Lobby has decided that their oppressive religious beliefs trump federal mandate, and are refusing to pay for their employee’s health care because it includes coverage for emergency contraception. They feel so strongly about denying this care to their female employees that they are willing to pay fines up to 1.3 million fucking dollars PER DAY.
That is how much Hobby Lobby hates and loathes and despises women. They hate women so much that losing 1.3 million dollars a day is worth it to them so long as they get to punish women that they think are godless sluts.
Please give your arty crafty money to literally anyone else on earth.
I have only seen this on my dashboard ONCE. It’s kind of a big deal to me, so if you’d consider reblogging I’d be grateful. It’s KILLING ME that Hobby Lobby make the vast majority of their money off of women, and yet are more than willing to be fined huge amounts just so they can deny the women who work for them their legally protected (the motherfucking SCOTUS stepped up) rights to reproductive control over their OWN GODDAMN BODIES.
And when I looked under the hobby lobby tag on tumblr most of what I saw was people wailing about how the Xtian fundamentalists who own the chain are being denied their religious freedom.
To me, this is the very definition of FUCKED UP.
Adding a media source to this so that anyone who was reluctant to reblog it without one can do so, because holy fuck.
first let’s clear the popular misconceptions :
- the US government doesn’t pay, it’s the TRIBAL governments.
- not all nations offer scholarship programs.
- it doesn’t pay for everything, no scholarship does.
- over 95% of natives quit high school & don’t qualify for college.
a bunch of moms are making letters+audio recordings of affirming, validating letters to queer/trans* people who don’t get that kind of support from their moms
i would say more about it but
im kind of busy in this puddle of tears on the floor so
I kind of needed this
PUDDLE OF TEARS INDEED. (I’m all caps locky today. *sniffle*)
This made my heart grow ten times til it almost broke with happy feelings. People can be so beautiful when they aren’t bring petty and ugly.
No, nobody thinks that. If you need help to get on your feet so be it, you can have it. But when it gets to the point where someone on welfare is abusing the system, taking money they don’t need, spending the money on luxuries that, ones that someone who goes without…

O.M.G. the Republicans have discovered time travel!
could you make this rebloggable cos this rules (yr pizza analogies are awesome)
I can, and it is surprising how many things relate directly to pizza
i love you so much raptor
I am pro-pizza analogies in all things.
Also, this is great.
Perfect in its simplicity.
My mom is abusive.
Not physically. Not anymore. Her little passive-aggressive headgames are just benign enough for the police to shrug aside as nothing important. But they’re chipping away at my sanity and well-being, and I want out.
I’ll be moving in with a friend…
I was going through a rough patch years ago when a friend lent me his copy of Good Omens; getting lost in that universe helped keep me sane. Now I’m going through a rougher patch, trying to get away from my abusive parents and out on my own… and this is a long shot, but so was the “get lost in a…
