George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.
Dear feminists who say George Takei is a misogynist because he made a joke you don’t like on facebook and that he “doesn’t understand his male privilege”
This is what oppression really looks like, and he was also was gay long before the Stonewall Riots.
Check your own damn privilege.
I know I posted Thursday morning that I felt like I was on the verge of breaking down but now I really think like I’m about to burnout.
Thursday the book-keeper was at the office and she said “Good morning Stephanie, how are you doing today?” and I said “Oh I’m good how are you?” like I always do because I feel like saying “I’m good” is the only acceptable response to “How are you” when I’m at work. She replied “Well, you don’t look like you’re good. Problems at work? At home with your boyfriend?”
I told Ben about it later and he said that since she is a book-keeper she could probably smell me worrying about money :P
Yesterday at 3:30 my boss said “Lets close the office and go home now, you’ve worked hard yesterday (I had stayed almost an hour after office hours) and today”
So now not only do I feel like I’m about to lose my shit, but it also seems apparent to others that I’m about to lose my shit. I’ve been very stressed, very depressed AND I’m worried about finances and other stuff… I need a break… at least August 4th is a “Civic Holiday” and I’m really looking forward to it.
"Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate."
I don’t know why I think 8pm is an okay time to take a nap…
