Ass, Fail, and Fucking: Jessica Liebman ajessicaliebman Follow Hey, I wrote something! I've been hiring people for 10 years, and I still swear bya simple rule: If someone doesn't send a thank you email, don't hire them. I've been hiring people for 10 years, and I still swear by a simple rule: if s An executive managing editor who has hired hundreds of people believes candidates who send thank you emails show they want the job. businessinsider.com Muging M. Zhang @muqingmzhang Follow White people's fixation on inconsequential social norms is a way to structurally keep out non-white people who lack the cultural capital and privilege to know every one of these inane social rules we're supposed to perform to be granted the jobs and resources we fucking deserve. Jessica Liebman @jessicaliebman Hey, I wrote something!. I've been hiring people for 10 years, and I still swear by a simple rule: If someone doesn't send a thank you email, don't hire them. businessinsider.com/how-to-write-t.. Muqing M. Zhang @muqingmzhang Follow As people who lack white or class privilege know, not possessing this cultural capital causes intense anxiety and alienation. Networking events, office small talk, interviews are often dreadful experiences bc we're being judged according to rules that were set up for us to fail. Muqing M. Zhang @muqingmzhang Follow Everyone who has experienced the dread & anxiety of being in a room full of privileged white people and literally not knowing what they're talking about and second guessing everything you do, knows that these "proper politeness" rules are just a way to alienate & marginalize us. Muqing M. Zhang Follow muingmzhang These social norms of the dominant group create intense emotional strain for marginalized peoples. They cause immense mental labor for us to learn and mimic these behaviors, fear that resources will be withheld, and anxiety when we can't contort ourselves to fit their demands. smaug-official: uncommonbish:THISTHISTHIS, and linguistic prescriptivism also falls into this category. Completely pointless, historically arbitrary way to keep TALENT + MERIT as secondary qualifiers. “First impressions matter” my ass. Get Gen Xs out of hiring positions Bizarre social rules like these are literally so detrimental to autistic people trying to find work, I already struggle enough with the basics of social etiquette I don’t need weird rules like these to follow…
Phone, Camera, and Fancy: In 2017 I had the privilege of working at Palmer Station in Antarctica. I didn't have a fancy camera but I'm still proud of this shot I got with my phones camera.

Children, Drugs, and Family: kintatsujo Me: I don't know if I ever want to be pregnant I'd rather adopt a kid or two that are a bit older Someone: Are you SURE? Older adoptees present UNIQUE CHALLENGES Me: We are discussing human beings not digital pets plenoptic07 Literally every child every born and/or parented presents unique challenges. It's like people are kintatsujo An amazing and revolutionary concept indigo-night-wisp When people ask me, "Why do you want to adopt teenagers?" I always answer, "Because you asked like that." I'm real over it. If I become a foster mom to a 17 year old kid and I get the privilege of the option to adopt them? You better believe I am legally making that kid mine. "They'll be a legal adult in no time, why spend the money to adopt? They'll be aged out of the system." There's no aging out of family, Marvin "They might be rebellious or smoke or do drugs or steal things! What if they won't listen to you?" Then I guess l'll have to step up and do some fruxking parenting, Stanley. "You want to adopt problem children then?" All. Children. Are. Problem. Children. If you're not prepared to deal with the fact that at some point, any child ever, whether you birthed them yourself or adopted them at any age, could become a problem? Then you are NOT ready to have children, and should really just step off and let the people who actually want to be parents live in peace with their kids. dearbluetravelers Hey I'm so glad this post is picking up All children are problem children :)
