Anaconda, Family, and Homeless: fandomsandfeminism Thought: I do NOT think that 50% of the world's bilionaires should be WO- men. I think there shouldn't be any billionaires at all cardboardfacewoman So you are saying 0% of the world should be billionaires? fandomsandfeminism Yes caosdth Why shouldn't their be billionaires? That makes no sense. fandomsandfeminism Because the existence of billionaires is predicated on the exploitation of human labor and unsustainable 4G the exploitation of human labor and unsustainable environmental harm. That level of wealth hoarding is harmful to economies, as it reduces the amount of mo- ney in circulation. No one person, no family, could ever conceivably even SPEND a billion dollars anyway, and it is inherently immoral to accumulate wealth so narrowly while so much of the world lives in abject poverty Better then to create a wealth ceiling, a point at which all wealth over a certain point is taxed at or very near 100% to incentivize people to actually spend their mo- ney rather than hoard it, stimulating the economy and bettering the lives of far more people. Better even still to create and regulate economic systems that protect wor- kers and the environment in a way that such extreme levels of wealth accumulation aren't even feasible. aflawedmind The problem with this is that it reduces the incentive to actually do fiscally well. What's the point of starting a business if you can't become wealthy? fandomsandfeminism There is a very real difference between "reasonably wealthy" and A BILLIONAIRE twodotsknowwhy wealthy" and A BILLIONAIRE twodotsknowwhy No one is saying you shouldn't have a nice house, we are saying that having multiple really, really ridiculously nice houses while your employees are either homeless or at serious risk of becoming homeless is immoral whenandwhereienter I'll never understand why this concept is hard for people. I think it's because they can't actually fathom how much $1 Billion is fandomsandfeminism Seriously Lets say you have a badass job. A great job. You make $100 AN HOUR. You work 10 hours a day ($1000 A DAY), 5 days a week ($5000 a week!!), every week ($20,000 A MONTH), thats $240,000 Every Year. It would take you 4,167 years to make a billion dollars Fuente: fandomsandfeminism 129,277 notas Excessive wealth comes from excessive misery.

Bad, Confused, and Fucking: T-Mobile 1:10 AM Bra drop RAVE I went to a lingerie store yesterday to get some new "pretty" bras and while browsing near the changing room, a staff member (SM) asked another woman (30s, maybe?) going into the changing room how long it had been since she had been fitted. She said a while and before she could finish talking, SM says "OK, well let's get that taken care of" and tries to follow her into the changing roonm Shopper lady stopped her and told her she didn't want a fitting and SM interrupts her again to reassure her it's not uncomfortable and she shouldn't be shy and to tell her every woman needs one. Shopper lady clearly was getting pissed off at this point and straight up said "No You are not going to do a fitting for me." She wasn't rude, but she wasn't polite either, she was blunt Then SM turned the conversation on its head and asked "You're not a mother, are you?" Shopper lady looked so confused at the change of topic, she just said "Huh?" SM: "Yeah, thought so. I can always tell. The ↑ 2.7k 239 Share T-Mobile 1:10 AM SM: "Yeah, thought so. I can always tell. The women who aren't mothers yet are far more bashful. Once you have kids and have breastfed, that embarrassment goes right out the window because you'll realise breasts are for feeding babies, not for men to oogle" Shopper lady: gaining back some composure Kids aren't in my future SM: "Oh, it'll happen, one way or another" Shopper lady: now angry "Where in our conversation did I say it was my choice? How do you know you didn't just say that to an infertile woman?" SM: "I... Uh Shopper lady: getting louder "If boobs are only for feeding babies, you shouldn't have a job because lingerie stores like this shouldn't exist. And why would I gift wrap them for my girlfriend? Yeah girlfriend, so no it's not going to happen "one way or another"." SM: still stammering Shopper lady: "You know what?

I don't need a fitting not only because l know how to do it myself since l used to do your fucking job, which you'd know if you hadn't kept interrupting me, but because I'm also not buying anything after this" dumps armful of bras on the floor Not quite a mic drop, but her bra drop was still pretty cool By that point, I was outright staring and as Shopper Lady walked past she said "What?" in a defensive way, probably expecting me to defend SM. I just replied with "Just admiring how badass you are" which made her smile as she walked out Edit: just want to say l've seen a few comments assuming it was a Victoria's Secret store, but it wasn't. It was a boutique store with very few locations, and I don't want to say the name of it because apart from this one time, l've never had or seen a bad experience there ↑ 2.7k 239 Share Woman goes off on employee about not wanting a child, does 'bra drop'
