Anonymous said: What's the best way for a poor person to avoid buying sweatshop stuff? I hate what happens in sweatshops but at the same time my options are limited due to money and what's being sold in my area :( Do you have any advice?

Thrift is the only thing i can think of

Not buying from sweatshops would do nothing to improve the lives of the workers so it’s probably best to not waste energy on shopping “ethically” and concentrate on organising our own workplaces and communities.

Over the past decade, factory and sweatshop workers across East and South Asia have been militantly organising. Their unions are getting stronger, they are taking direct action against bosses and militias, and they are gaining better wages and working conditions all the time.

To boycott the products they make, when no union or sweatshop workers are calling for a boycott, doesn’t strengthen their struggle, it’ll weaken it.

Nike or Primark, whatever you buy you’re buying from exploited workers. And that includes the first world primark shop workers and delivery people. You cannot boycott capitalism under a globalised capitalist system.

Boycotts lead to less profits lead to already exploited workers being laid off. Unless they call for a boycott (in which they’ve hopefully prepared for the fallout) you’re only added more exploitation and starvation. It’s a fucking terrible tight-rope act that was purposefully designed to weaken solidarity and direct action.

Hello!! I’m in need of a HUGE signal boost right now (and maybe a big reporting session) because my best friend is being blackmailed by her ex boyfriend. 

I’m not exactly sure what I’m supposed to put here, but I feel like this should be a warning for anyone who knows him and just a general informative thing. Jacob lives in Australia and is 16 years of age. They’ve had a very unhealthy relationship and he’s threatened sending out her nudes multiple times. Jacob is very manipulative and emotionally abusive towards her and even ends up pulling me and her other friends into not being able to do anything because it’ll end up hurting her. He’s made around 7 Twitter accounts to contact my friend in the times that she was trying to get out of the relationship.

In the picture above, he’s posted her nudes and threatened her.

ALL IM ASKING IS FOR YOU TO REPORT HIM ON EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING:

His Twitter accounts all start with @/neinthousand but the one that was most recently used was: @/neinthousand12 (but it was apparently deleted)

His Facebook account is:Jacob R Hynes, and he has more but I am unable to find them. They’re under Jacob Hynes and the like.

********** UPDATES!!! **********

First, we thought we had a compromise. 

Then this happened not even a minute after:

PLEASE CONTINUE REBLOGGING THIS. My friend is only 15 years of age and this is absolutely horrible. We’re getting ahold of local authorities but if you see the pictures anywhere (namely twitter) REPORT THEM IMMEDIATELY.

Put this guy on blast. Detestable scum.

Fucking ruin him.

FINISH. HIM.

Oh this boy needs to back the fuck off

this is what is going on in scotland right now.

dont ignore this.

there is NO coverage of the rioting on the news which is why its so important that you dont ignore this. 

please stay safe if you live in scotland. 

my partner actually went to the yes rally in george square a couple days ago and said the no guys were indeed doing nazi salutes

we are not making this up there’s video and photographic proof of neo nazi attacks
please educate yourselves and if you’re in Scotland keep yourselves safe

I hope my Scottish friends are safe. :(

That’s so disappointing. I would have liked Scotland to go for independence (because I’m Irish and insanely biased!), but the voter turn out was strong and things were so nearly a peaceful decision-making process! Most people who voted to stay in the Union are NOT flag-waving nazis. These fucking scumbags just want to cause trouble! If needed, I’m sure we can give Scotland an empty island to leave them all on!

Another species to be added to the ever-growing tick-list:

Africa’s Western Black Rhino has been officially declared EXTINCT. Poaching and lack of conservation have led the subspecies of black rhino to extermination, while the Northern White Rhino is ‘teetering on the brink of extinction’.

    Way to go, humanity.

what’s sad is hardly anyone fucking cares or wants to hear about it let alone talk about it

:(

Yes, I would condemn him, because I believe that a real man must be a real man. God created man for procreation, it is the nature. The man for me is the support, the strength of… I won’t support a gay son.
In our time, there is a very large number of frivolous girls (and a man can be with a large number of these girls). This is freedom for men.

And a man has no right to be a f*g.

Two girls together - not the same thing as the two men together. It seems to me that lesbians look aesthetically much nicer than two men holding their hands or kissing.
But! I want to say that I’m not against gays, I just want my son to be a real man, not a f*g. I have many gay friends. I believe that being gay is all still better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay is better than the rest.

Yulia Volkova from t.A.T.u

She may have helped many of us come to terms with our sexuality, but make no mistake she is not on our side.

Just a note tha Yulia Volkova is bisexual. I know I didn’t know about this until today, because people constantly refer to t.A.T.u as “fake lesbians”.

Question of the day

bisexuwhales:

Time for some bi positivity! What’s your favorite thing about being bi? or pan or lgbt in general?

I feel that my bisexuality means that toxic gender roles are less likely to muck up my relationships.

I don’t even think girls would want boyfriends if dragons existed, so if the government wants less teen pregnancies they know what they got to do

image

kind of a bad example considering she only has…

Well see. She got married to a very handsome Dothraki (one of the wedding gifts was three old dragon eggs, that’s important) and they were trying to start a family. It was all going swimmingly but bleedin’ men just had to invade, rape and pillage an innocent village. Her hubby - quite rightly - had that whole mess bite him in the ass. Anyway, he was dying and the silly girl trusted a woman she “rescued”, (aka basically made her a slave but she wouldn’t be raped again) to save him. And fuck, no one is going to just save someone who just destroyed their community. So yeah, she brings the guy back to “life” with some pretty dark magic. Mid dark magic, someone attacks the pregnant girl and she gets dragged into the hut. Load of dark, ancient mojo is going on and she loses the baby. Now here’s where dragons come in. The baby wasn’t a baby, they say it had scales. Whether it grew that way or the magic changed it, I’m not sure. But so she loses her baby. Then she finds out her husband is alive but in a coma forever, so she kills him. Those loses give her the temporary insanity and possibly magic powers needed to burn everything and sit in the fire with her old dragon eggs. Then the dragon eggs hatch. She’s also fine because reasons. And that’s how a teen pregnancy ended in dragons.
