Some pictures from the rally today at Columbia. So much wonderful support for my sister and I! Emma and I are truly grateful to everyone who came, and everyone who was there in spirit.

This honestly makes me so emotional.

Anonymous said: any good book suggestions that focus on the downfalls of capitalism?

shitrichcollegekidssay:

Hella

For two really good introductory texts, Benjamin Kunkel’s Utopia or Bust (which deals with contemporary left thinkers and is a good place to get the big names in left theory), and David Harvey’s Contradictions of Capitalism are both really good.  Harvey also wrote a book specifically on capitalist crises called The Enigma of Capital and the Crises of Capitalism.  But there’s a whole lot more, guys help this anon out?

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

 i’ve been doing research about jobs/companies that are accepting of trans and the like since i’m going job hunting again next month, and i found this list, which lists trans-friendly businesses. it links to this page, a directory for employers.

tagging so people can see it, i figured this might come in handy for some people!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

Stop telling women that we should find ourselves beautiful and that we should love ourselves when you are standing right there, judging us on how our knees look in short skirts and how prominent our boobs are in a sweater and how much makeup we are or are not wearing.

Instead of us working harder on “love your body” and “find your inner beauty”, the rest of the world should be working harder on “stop telling women their bodies are a shameful place to live but that if they’re strong enough, they will learn to embrace that shame.”

This is my body. It’s not “beautiful”. I don’t “love it”. I don’t have to. I don’t have to have any strong feelings about my body. And whatever feelings I do have are not somehow invalid if they’re not glowing reviews.

Important

As a cashier who deals with this shit every day, it’s nice to see that some people actually care about us.

I had no idea about the speed score thing :O

But if I can add on about being a cashier for a Pharmacy:

1) We’re required to have your name and birthday every time you come up. Don’t roll your eyes and expect us to remember you

2) Don’t mumble your name and birthday. It might be obvious to you, but it’s our first time hearing it so please speak clearly

3) The computers we use at the cash register are very basic and only tell us what prescription you’re getting. If you want to know your insurance info or change your info, you have to go down to the other end

4) When you’re dropping off your prescription, STAY. THERE.

There’s a LOT of information we have to go through, including your insurance, and we don’t want you yelling at us later when you come to pick it up and it turns out your insurance didn’t cover it and we couldn’t tell you because you were gone

5) Just please be patient with us.
