politics and bullshit

If ur wondering why Mexico is rioting atm and if ur saying “omg theyre rioting over gas thats so stupid” and blah blah blah.. Just know that the minimum wage in Mexico is $80 Pesos($3 USD) a day.

they earn $3 dollars a day

The gas in Mexico right now is $15.75 Pesos per liter (btw this is the cheapest gas price in Mexico I could find.. $15 pesos is about $0.80 USD) In order to fill up a 4 cylinder car, they spend around $550 Pesos($30 USD)

So lets say someone works at minimum wage for 6 days. They end up earning $480 Pesos a week ($24 USD). Yeah.. no theyre not gonna be able to fill up their tank.

They still need to pay bills, buy groceries, clothes, etc.

The president of Mexico is shitty and ever since he got elected the country has gone to shit and they still have to suffer 2 more years until he is out of office

ALL OF THIS IS A REASON WHY MEXICANS IMMIGRATE TO THE US!!!!!!!! WE COME HERE TO THE US TO WORK AND EARN MORE MONEY TO SUPPORT OUR FAMILIE!!!! THEY DONT PAY ENOUGH IN MEXICO TO FUCKING SURVIVE!!!!!!!!!

Update: yes I accidentally wrote $3 instead of $4. I apologize sincerely for that misinformation.
More things that anti-SJWs do in arguments that make me not take them seriously

(I’ve made so many of these posts I’ve lost track)

  • compare ANYTHING they don’t like to Nazis or fascists; for example, if you do something as tame as correct them after they misgender a trans person, suddenly you‘re a fascist and you’re taking away their free speech (also, they love to reference George Orwell’s 1984, and none of them even understand what that book is about)
  • ignore context in every discussion
  • claim that legitimate terms that have been used by sociologists for decades are “buzzwords made up by SJWs”
  • call anyone who points out the flaws in their logic “SJW”, “tumblrina”, or “special snowflake” as an insult, overusing those terms so much that they no longer have any meaning; those terms are actually now just code for “person who isn’t a bigot”
  • anytime a marginalized person talks about their life experiences, accuse that person of lying because it doesn’t line up with what they want to hear (I see this a lot when women speak about their personal experiences with sexual harassment/assault or when neurodivergent people talk about triggers or self-diagnosis)
  • bend over backwards to defend blatant white supremacists, ableists, transphobes, misogynists, and homophobes, but then lose their shit over cisphobia, heterophobia, misandry, etc. and then claim that they’re for equality

As always, add your own if you want to

PLEASE

Don’t stay silent while they take away or limit your reproductive rights.

Don’t stay silent while they harass immigrants.

Don’t stay silent while they belittle your sexual orientation or your gender.

Don’t stay silent while they wreck our school systems.

Don’t stay silent while they build a fortune off of our misfortune.


Get up, stand up. Call your representative. Protest. Be vocal, be loud. Give em hell kids.

nbc better be fucking careful with snl on saturday. i want the show to directly call themselves out for letting trump host last year and making this election look like a joke when it never was. snl has been a racist institution for so fucking long and they showed that when they allowed that white supremacist monster into their studio, ignoring the poc and women who would be uncomfortable with that. enough with this “we don’t get political” bullshit from them. i want them to say how awful trump is and not have it be a joke.

kate mckinnon, a lesbian, should not have to play hillary clinton and give her usual amazing, cheerful performance when her rights as an lgbt person could be taken away. none of the people of color in the cast should have to act like everything is fine and dandy because it’s fucking not. i want colin jost and michael che to go on a complete anti trump rant on update. i want pete davidson to call trump a racist rapist like he did on instagram. i want leslie, sasheer, melissa and kenan to tell him to go fuck himself on live television. i want the women to write one of their a+ songs, but this time have it be empowering about how trump can’t break us.

people go to snl for laughs and the only thing that would make so many of us happy this week would to see them spitting in amerikka’s face

I swear to god…..can people just fucking say what they really mean?

Instead of claiming that “Melania Trump will bring class and elegance that hasn’t been seen in the White House in 8 years” ……

Just fucking admit that you’re either a complete Racist douchebag, or you only care whether the First Lady is someone you can jerk off to.

Michelle Obama has been an amazing and classy First Lady, regardless of whether you approve of the Obama Administration or not. She is well-spoken, highly educated, passionate about Women’s Rights and Children, a loyal wife and loving mother to two lovely young women, and she has consistently risen above some of the most vicious and racist things I have ever seen flung at a First Lady.

She has been mocked for her athletic build. Mocked for her looks. Compared to all kinds of animals, and accused of secretly being a post-operative Transwoman. She has never given all this vileness the time of day, and continued to be a gracious and thoughtful woman.

She is an extremely well-educated and successful woman in her own right. She graduated from Princeton and Harvard, she had a successful career as a Lawyer and an educator. This is her first and only marriage.

But please, keep insisting your mockery isn’t because you’re an awful person.
