HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

I just want to know how they categorized “attractiveness” and figured out these statistics. Beauty is almost completely subjective.

Also if this is true, what do they plan to do about it? What’s their solution?

This is true, but the best question is how they plan to legislate it. Would they penalize the attractive or the ones who treat the attractive people better?

There ought to be a law! Redistribute facial features! Or outlaw people who commit the hate crime of thinking others are attractive!

To be honest, this reminds me of the sorry Harrison Bergeron(by Kurt Vonnegut), where the society is super obsessed with equality(*cough cough* “Tumblr island”), so the attractive ballerinas where ugly masks because they are too attractive.

today I saw a preteen girl pick up Mean Girls at Target and ask her friend what it was. She didn’t even know. She said it sounded dumb. The people are forgetting. The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it.

In this African tribe, when someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them.  For two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done. The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as a good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness.  But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes. The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help. They unite then to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected: “I am good.” Shikoba Nabajyotisaikia! NABAJYOTISAIKIA, is a compliment used in South Africa and means: “I respect you, I cherish you. You matter to me.” In response, people say SHIKOBA, which is: “So, I exist for you.”

:’))))))

WHY ISN’T THIS A THING IN ALL CULTURES

some day I’m going to create a bingo card for these kinds of posts.
vague mention of “Africa” and “African tribe” with no actual names of tribes, countries, or languages, because Africa is a country and everyone there is exactly the same obv: check.
picture of smiling/emotional black people taken completely out of context: check.
made-up “African” words with deep meanings: check.
"noble savage" grossness out the wazoo: check.
this photo is a picture of Ghanaian boys playing soccer from Amen: Grassroots Football.
Initial googling says that Shikoba means “feather” in Choctaw, which would mean OP isn’t even on the right damn continent.
(When I look at Choctaw-English dictionaries, though, shikoba doesn’t show up at all; the word for feather seems to be “híshi.” “Shikobli” is a verb meaning “to put on a plume” so maybe there’s some conjugation or gerund going on here? I’d welcome any corrections from actual Choctaw speakers.)
Nabajyoti Saikia is someone’s name. OP just straight-up stole some poor Indian cement chemist’s name for their colonialist hippie bullshit.
Look at this dude. He didn’t spend years of his life writing a goddamn textbook on waste management strategies so that you could use his name to prop up this crock of shit. He’s disappointed in you. Do better.


This is some disgusting orientalistic bullshit, my god.

Plus, uh, this would encourage more bad behavior.

My mother and I need your help, tumblr!

My mother is one of the greatest people anyone could ever hope to meet. She is so kind, loving, and supportive of everything I’ve ever done and she continues to serve as an inspiration in my life. Unfortunately, my mother has a condition called Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. Among the many ways MS affects my mother, the most obvious is her teeth. 
Over the course of the 20 years she has had MS, my mother has had seizures. These seizures caused her to smash her teeth together, creating micro-cracks in her teeth. One by one, her teeth have crumbled apart due to the impact of her seizures. She has very few left in the front and no molars. Our health insurance, provided to us from the United States Armed Forces due to my father’s 20 years in the service, refuses to cover the cost of fixing her teeth.My father served in Air Force for 20 years before retiring. During this time he served in the Gulf War, Bosnia, Somalia, Iraq, and Turkey. Yet the military has made it clear that they will not take care of us, despite originally promising to cover the cost of her surgery. They then ruled that my mother’s teeth were not caused by an injury or accident, so they won’t cover the procedure that will save her from constant mouth infections and terrible pain every time she eats. More than that, due to the infections caused by the shards of teeth still left in her mouth, she can not start revolutionary immuno-suppressant drugs for her MS because the infections could overwhelm her body and kill her. They put our “out-of-pocket” costs at $17,000, more than two years of my college tuition. We are a family that lives on one income due to my mother’s inability to work with her MS, so this figure is out of our league. Please help in any way that you can. Donate, or simply share this page to help get the word out. It means the world to me because my mother is my hero and I would love to get her a new lease on life.

And socialism is different? Or Progressivism? Or Communism? All whom create poor quality products and no real choice? 

Ah yes, all those quality products like automobiles and airplanes from the 15th century. If only capitalism hadn’t come along and ruined those.
