ok so I don’t usu reblog this stuff here but last year I had a horrible experience with an Airbnb host who threatened to bust my kneecaps, stalk me and murder me right? And not only did I GO TO THE POLICE before cancelling the reservation, but I also provided copies of that documentation to Airbnb customer service (I should mention after hunting down that number in the depths of the stupid internet and being on hold for an hour). Did they give me a refund for the months I’d paid in advance? No - they accused me of lying!
A few weeks later in a fit of desperation, a coworker suggested I tweet to Airbnb. Ok. I have maybe 30 followers on Twitter, and didn’t really use it at the time, but I thought, fuck it. Nothing to lose now. I made a half assed attempt at an overly indignant tweet with plenty of capitalization, and you know what happened?
Within the HOUR. It was taken down. I was DMed by a CSR. And I was given a FULL. REFUND.
$1500 like THAT.
I don’t know what kind of dystopic fucking reality we live in where police reports mean nothing and the PR value from a half assed tweet to 30 followers outweighs the safety of my kneecaps, but. Social media… Lesson learned, I guess.
Rebooting this addition because holy shit???
Corporations care way more about their brand than your safety. Exploit that.
I had to send an angry tweet at my power company. Within twenty minutes, I was getting a phone call, and my problem was fixed by the time I left the massage appointment I had.
Okay so this is important and all but original post is a joke that’s literally a picture of Harry Styles lol

Liberal Friends, listen to this right now: Democratic Nominees are not clay
DEMOCRATIC NOMINEES ARE NOT CLAY PIGEONS
But, Emily, whatever do you mean? What is this metaphor?
It goes like this
One by one, over the next couple of months, Democratic nominees are
going to launch their official bids for President. They are going to launch
themselves, one by one, into the sky, right into our line of vision
Our job is not to shoot them.
Our job is NOT, the second we see them cross the sky, to reach out for the
gun being handed to us by conservatives (because duh, conservatives and
guns) and take aim, and blast them, one by one out of the air, for not being
Not likeable enough. BOOM
Not an inspiring enough speaker. BOOM
Said that awkward thing that one time. BOOM
I wouldn't want to have a beer with them. BOOM
Too old. BOOM. Too female. BOOM. Too white. BOOM
Not a fucking flawless progressive superhero. BOOM
Because what happens next? We shoot the candidates down. We degrade
them. We belittle them. We smear them. Then we hand the gun to the
media. They do the same. They hand the gun to the conservatives. They do
the same. Then the bots start reloading. BOOM. BOOM. BOOM
And then at the end of primary season, we have to pick up the shattered
remains of whoever got the most votes and attempt to glue them back
together into a candidate who can win the general election.
And we will lose. Because we learned fucking NOTHING from 2016,
Trump didn't win because every conservative loves him. Most of them hate
his fucking guts. But they held their noses and voted for him because he
was the only way to push their agenda forward. And holy shit, have they
pushed it. Despite his complete ineptitude, his bumbling, his gross
incompetence, his blatant corruption, they have shoved through some
really damaging policies that are hurting real people every single day, and
they will continue to do so for as long as we let them
So, here we are. You're not jazzed about Liz Warren? Awesome. Beto not
your boy? Swell. Sick of Biden memes? Good for you, friend. Keep it to
yourself. Why? Because EVERY SINGLE DEMOCRAT WHO RUNS IS
INFINITELY BETTER FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY THAN THE
FLAMING RACIST POPULIST TRASH CURRENTLY STEERING THIS
COUNTRY DIRECTLY INTO THE SUN.
I'm not sure if you noticed, but we already elected a guy based on a cult of
personality rather than on whether he was qualified in any way to do the
iob, and we're going to be putting out the flames for DECADES
But what do we do instead, you ask? Watch debates. Compare platforms
Be informed. Choose your favorite BASED ON REAL FACTUAL POLICIES
AND EXPERIENCE, NOT ON YOUR DELICATE FEELINGS AND WHETHER
YOU FEEL SUFFICIENTLY ENTERTAINED OR INEXPLICABLY HAPPY AT THE
VERY SIGHT OF THEIR GLOWING FACE. Then get involved. Register
people. Drive to the polls. Hold signs on street corners. Write postcards
Knock on doors. Don't tell us why the other candidates suck, tell us why
yours is THE BEST. Fight FOR them. Remember how we used to fight FOR
things, rather than against them? I know Trump makes it hard to remember,
but I promise, that's a thing we used to know how to do
Then we all, collectively, wholeheartedly, throw our weight and energy and
voice behind whoever gets the nomination. If we do that, we win. Period
It's not a question of who can beat Trump, don't you get it? A sentient
fucking houseplant with a liberal platform could beat Trump, if we do this
right. It's a question of whether WE can beat him, or would we rather tear
Look around you, folks. The stock market is in free-fall. Our international
reputation is in tatters. Our foreign policy is for sale to dictators. Our free
press is under daily attack. Our Supreme Court is one conservative white
dude away from full-on Gilead, and we can't keep asking an 84-year-old
woman recovering from broken ribs and a third bout of cancer to hang on
for six more years because we can't get our heads out of our own asses. I
mean, she'll do it, obviously, because RBG is a BOSS, but she shouldn't
I repeat. This is not a test of our candidates. There are lots of good, solid
options. It's a test of US. Of OUR ability to unite. Of OUR strength. Of OUR
ability to put aside selfish arbitrary purity tests and scales of "likeability"
and to just FUCKING GET IT DONE. We don't need the perfect candidate to
rescue us. We need to realize that we can rescue ourselves
So, how about it, Resistance? They want us to forget that we have the
numbers, the motivation, and the power. They want us to implode. Let's
explode instead, and leave nothing but a charred ruin of this nightmare
administration in our wake.
