"I know this isn’t going to be a popular opinion, but I’m gay, and I don’t think there’s nearly as much discrimination as people claim. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve experienced discrimination. But it hasn’t been a huge factor in my life. I feel like a lot of people bring discrimination on themselves by getting in people’s faces too much. They like to say: ‘Accept me or else!’ They go around demanding respect as a member of a group, instead of earning respect as an individual. And that sort of behavior invites discrimination. I’ve never demanded respect because I was gay, and I haven’t experienced much discrimination when people find out that I am."
This is very interesting….
Fantastic commentary. Everyone faces some discrimination in their life. Everyone. For being gay or poor or rich or Catholic or skinny or fat or whatever. It’s important to understand that sometimes human nature is just dark and sometimes your number gets picked. You’re not always a victim of something deliberate and systematic. Sometimes we are all just victims of the darker edges of human nature. More often, though, we get to enjoy the beauty and goodness within human nature. We need to remember that as well.

Anonymous asked: Report your co-workers anonymously to human resources. Set up a hidden cam and send the video in to them. Sometimes extreme measures are necessary for survival.
Already told my boss about it. And there are already cameras all over the store.
What is the point?
Watching your coworker sit on their ass all night while you work like a dog, knowing they make the same pay you do, has GOT to be one of the most infuriating things I have ever experienced.
I asked for help. Multiple times the past two nights. Did he help? No.
What did he do? Played on the cell phone. Kissed and hugged on his girlfriend. Had a fight with his girlfriend in the store. Played a game of tag with her in the parking lot. Then he sat around listening to his MP3 player.
What did I do? All the cleaning and the stocking. All of it. And we make the same pay.
No. This is what is wrong with my generation. Too many of my generation just want money for nothing. Money for NOTHING.
I WORK MY ASS OFF BECAUSE I WAS RAISED TO HAVE A WORK ETHIC. While growing up I heard “If you’re gonna do something do it well or not at all.” If I was gonna be paid to do something I was gonna do it with everything I had OR IT WAS MY ASS.
THANK GOD I WAS RAISED THAT WAY.
These pretentious little shit-heads who think the world owes them for their existence are going to be the ABSOLUTE RUIN of civilized society.
And if you go apply for a job and you get it and you’re getting a paycheck YOU BETTER DO WHAT YOU’RE HIRED TO DO. IT’S CALLED RESPONSIBILITY.
And the sad part is these people are everywhere. I have a friend who is a manager at the store I work at and she has to clean up after everyone. She works her ass off and yet the people who do nothing are the ones getting promoted. They leave her right there in the same position keeping everything afloat just about singlehandedly.
Why? Why is the laziness rewarded? Squeaky wheel gets the grease? Is that it?
Don’t be a lazy, selfish, greedy asshole. Work hard at what you’re paid to do.
Don’t sit on your ass while somebody else does all the work.God, I am so royally pissed off.
HATERS GON’ HATE.
Two of Tumblr’s biggest nightmares together. Shit going down.
Just joking, I’m going to make her take me to bars and get me fat on American food.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD CHICK-FIL-A?! DO YOU LIKE CHICKEN AND TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE?! We have one on my campus. And a barbecue place. And fried mac and cheese.
A limousine driver one day had the misfortune of driving a grouchy elderly woman around. And all the while that he drove she was nagging him about driving too quickly and ignoring road signs, and just generally giving him a difficult time.
Well, sure enough, they were driving down a country road and a cow walked right in front of the limo and he hit it and killed it.
The elderly woman was furious, lecturing him that she told him he should have listened to her about his terrible driving and to immediately go to the farm house up the hill and ask how much they owed for the death of the cow.
So the driver does as he’s told and doesn’t come back for two hours!!!
By the time he returns the elderly woman is in a rage. When he gets back into the limo she screams, “What took you so long?! What happened?!’
And the driver says, “Well, the farmer shook my hand and welcomed me inside and had his wife make a beautiful dinner with homemade apple pie. And after I ate they made their daughter have passionate sex with me.”
“What on earth did they do that for?! What did you tell them?”
The driver replied, “I told them I was Nancy Pelosi’s driver, and I killed the old cow.”
