mswyrr: mysharona1987: Like, you want janitors and McDonald fast food workers and cleaners. You just don’t want them to make a liveable wage and have healthcare and be treated like proper human beings.   ultimately the people at the top want to replace them with machines. factory jobs have been lost to automation as well as companies moving abroad. they’re trying to get rid of truck drivers and other people who drive people/goods around. they want to replace employees at McDonalds. there’s serious articles about it and also “cute” articles about delivery robots and I think: that’s a working class job gone. one that was already fucking pathetic bc of how unfairly people who drive delivery are treated. but soon (within 5-10 years?) those jobs will just be gone. and idk what people are supposed to do at that point… just be “polite” and shuffle off and die in a corner somewhere because there’s simply not enough higher status/paying jobs to go around and they never had the educational or other opportunities to even compete for those jobs anyway? i suppose plumbers and electricians and some forms of maintenance will be necessary for a few decades until AI can think as creatively as humans but at some point we have to decide whether human lives have inherent worth apart from their worth under capitalism. and we, in the US, do not currently live in a society that believes they do. : Existential Comics @existentialcoms Follow When you blame a poor person for not getting a better job, you accept that while their job is necessary, whoever does it should be poor.

nibenese: animenta: benepla: c-bassmeow: This is real For as much hate as this receives, the book “The Time He Desires” and it’s creator Kyell Gold, are trying to spread a good message. As the article reads… “Muslims, queers, and furries all share the experience of having been marginalized by the mainstream, and of being continually forced to justify their existence.” …the author is trying to normalize the idea that LGBT+, Muslims, and furries are all people. People that deserve to be treated like decent human beings. And honestly, it makes me sad to see that we, as a species, have come so far, and yet still can’t be decent to others people.

Not only that but although there’s nothing wrong with wanting to include different identities and experiences -THIS DOES NOTHING TO RESIST TRUMP! This is not resistance. Liberals have to get it out of their heads that weak shit like this is going to defeat or even contributes to “the resistance” it’s foolish, inaccurate, stupid, self-congratulatory, and misguided. PLUS the lefts recent trend in making ever little action, proclivity, preference, and activity into an identity that defines you and that is inherently political is so stupid. Furries are not a marginalized group of people. They may be looked down upon and people may judge them unfairly but this is tantamount to society looking down on “goths” or people who are overly tattooed. This is not the same as being gay and muslim. Two groups that are very much persecuted. : Slate Slate @Slate Looking for a book to help resist Trump?

congenitaldisease: Letchworth Village was a psychiatric hospital located in Rockland County, New York. It housed patients ranging from newborn to elderly. It opened in 1911 and was rife with reports of unfair treatment of the patients ranging from patients being unclothed and neglected to reports of rape. In 1996, the psychiatric hospital was closed down and has since fallen to disrepair. To add insult to injury, there are a number of numbered gravestones hidden among the woodland. These unnamed gravestones belong to those who never made it out of Letchworth. After a number of years, a bronze monument was erected at the entrance of the cemetery which lists around 900 names. However, these names are not linked to the plots in which patients were buried but they are believed to be buried in the cemetery somewhere. Some of these people are identified simply as “Baby Girl” or “Baby Boy.” : THOSE WHO SHALL NOT BE FORGOTTEN GIVING NAMES TO SOULS FORGOTTEN NO LONGER congenitaldisease: Letchworth Village was a psychiatric hospital located in Rockland County, New York.
