upheld: Andy Ternay added 2 new photos. 11 Feb at 19:57 Adventuresome morning today! Mary Ann and I went to First Watch in Richardson for a quick breakfast but it was not to be First, we were approached by a manager who let us know that customers were very distressed by my shirt and that children might see it. T expressed deep sympathies and let her know that explaining "grab 'em by the pussy" and golden showers to my daughter was equally unpleasant. A Latino woman checking me out tells me she loves my shirt and thanked her. Again as we were being seated she expressed that a particular group of customers was suffering due to my indescribable poor taste. replied that I did not see the problem As we are seated two African-American workers individually tell me how cool the shirt is. One of them states that the people did not tell their server - a person of color - their complaint. They requested the manager, a white person, to complain to. I personally did not witness this but that is what I was told Our drinks are served and our order is taken Then one of the cooks comes to the table and very apologetically explains the owners have been called and we are being asked to leave We ask to tip our server for occupying her table, get drinks to go and leave. One table of white people applauds. We are stopped in the parking lot by one of the African American servers who had stopped to comment on the shirt. If I understand correctly, he was quitting the job on the spot over us being asked to leave. He told us: "you should hear these people asking not to be seated near Muslims." So we get in the car and start to leave as the Richardson police pull up outside.I stop the car and ask the officer if she is there over a t-shirt. She affirms this to be true and asks my name which I respectfully decline to give; she starts in on the shirt - whereupon l cite Cohen v. California, 1971, in which the Supreme Court upheld the right to wear a T- shirt saying: FUCK THE DRAFT. She's like: just leave, okay? MAJOR TAKEAWAYS: 1. If your kids can't handle the word "Fuck" they are going to have a really tough time in this world 2. Compared to racism, bigotry, misogyny and collusion with a foreign power, "Fuck" gleams with cleanliness and purity. Treating Muslims and people of color, LGBTQ and women as "less than" is the real filth and harm to our country 3. Everywhere I go with this shirt, white males sneer and people of color smile and give me thumbs up. I think it is very worthwhile to let people of color know they are not alone - that some whites also see the evil of racism is resurgent - and we will fight with our brothers and sisters of color against it 4. Regarding the restaurant - I'm fine with being asked to leave and I don't urge a boycott. These things are never easy for businesses, and the workers were polite and professional Besides, we hope to be back soon 5. Challenge authoritarianism anywhere and everywhere.. otherwise, it wins. you THE RACIST LT-RIGAT FUCK RUMe ND FUCK YUU FOR VOTING FOR HIM

Bakers Lose Appeal; Ordered To Pay 6-Figures For Refusing To Make Wedding Cake For Same-Sex Couple –blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, a judge ruled against two Christian bakers who refused service for a same-sex couple. Now, according to NBC News, the owners of the now-closed Sweet Cakes by Melissa bakery will have to fork over a $135,000 fine for their discrimination. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident occurred back in 2013 when Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of the Oregon bakery, refused to make a wedding cake for Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer. At the time, the Kleins said their religious beliefs wouldn’t allow them to provide a service for the same-sex couple. However, according to NBC News, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries said that their refusal violated a 2007 state law that protects the rights of the LGBTQ community. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Years later, the couple filed a suit against the bakers for their refusal of service, demanding money for their emotional distress. At the time, a judge ruled in favor of the couple, ordering the bakers to cough up the damages. However, the Kleins appealed in March of this year. But, on Thursday, nearly five years after the start of the case, the Oregon Court of Appeals denied the bakers’ claim and upheld the 6-figure fine against them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It does not matter how you were born or who you love,” the couple said in a statement after the ruling. “All of us are equal under the law and should be treated equally.

No wifi =abuse?: Me as a parent Today's WiFi password can be unlocked by texting a photo of a clean kitchen to mom. Said photograph MUST contain one box of crackers on the counter by the stove (to prevent re-using any previous photos). Thank you for playing. May the odds be ever in your favor. Love, Mom sonansu This is such an abuser-disguised-as-a-quirky-parent vibe it literally makes me sick 2 look at lol eclecticnerd33 I am going to talk about this for a minute, because yeah I think OP really nails something here. A lot of really crappy parenting is often upheld as a cute or funny thing, and a lot of people in the comments are shitting on OP because they cannot imagine how t could possibly be abusive. It's hard because you cannot see the rest of the context, but this could very well be an abuse tactic, and overall is just a crappy thing to do to a kid. Plus it probably doesn't work and has negative consequences for the overall relationship l am going to address several things off of the bat. I am not saying that having your kid clean the kitchen is abusive, what I am saying is establishing a pattern of taking away good things preemptively to enforce·good" behavior Is a bad parenting tactic that could toe the line to abuse. Especially the way it's worded as if it's a common tactic (need for a new photo), overall this is authoritarian, allows no room for autonomy, and doesn't even really get at why the kitchen should be and needs to cleaned today (what you actually want your ki to learn in the long run). There are better ways new photo), overall this is authoritarian, allows no room for autonomy, and doesn't even really get at why the kitchen should be and needs to be cleaned today (what you actually want your kid to learn in the long run). There are better ways to communicate the message of shared responsibility than through the creation of social isolation (and yes this is social isolation, wifi is used in how humans particularly young people communicate with their friends in real life and online nowadays) The major point I want to emphasize is that this type of action establishes a precedent and a set of emotions in a kid and none of those emotions are positive. It shows that important and vital things will be withheld, potentially without warning. It tells the kid they do not have a say in how their environment is structured, it tells them they do not have the right to set their own schedule, overall it breeds a sense of incompetence in themselves and resentment towards that authority that doesn't really consider their desire and needs I reflect a lot on parenting, and the best parenting doesnt demand a kid do something or else, it gives a kid the tools so they can get to that answer on their own, and when they do both of you will be better served. The kid will have more motivation to get it done, and there isnta building sense of resentment. Yeah this method is hard work, a are situations and kids it doesn't work for, but this post out of context does give me bad parery kid they do not have a say in how their environment Is structured, it tells them they do not have the right to set their own schedule, overall it breeds a sense of incompetence in themselves and resentment towards that authority that doesn't really consider their desire and needs I reflect a lot on parenting, and the best parenting doesnt demand a kid do something or else, it gives a kid the tools so they can get to that answer on their own, and when they do both of you will be better served.

Yeah this method is hard work, and there are situations and kids it doesn't work for, but seeing this post out of context does give me bad parenting/ potential abuse vibes sonansu Hey! Thanks a ton. Since making this comment offhandedly, I have gotten over fifty Anon messages telling me I'm a spoiled brat, that my abuse is fake, and that should take my own life and stop being a burden on my abusive parents. People perceived my comment as "lol this is inherently abusive" rather than the "man this gives me the Willie's cause it's resonant to my own abuse. intended In that time, few people have stood up for me even tried to understand my side. Thank you fo having compassion for an abuse survivor instead of "lol this inherently abusive" rather than comment as is the "man this gives me the Willie's cause it's resonant to my own abuse. intended In that time, few people have stood up for me or even tried to understand my side. Thank you for having compassion for an abuse survivor instead of invalidating her. It legitimately means a lot to me. hearth-fucker Yeah this creeps me out on so many levels. It's different from the stereotypical picture of abuse but that doesn't make it any less abusive and it's important to look at this sort of controlling behavion and call it abuse toO horrorjapan f you think helping your mother who likely provides for you, cooks for you, is clearly out working to keep a roof over your head is 'abuse' grow the fuck up.
