Just to be clear, I do often use “dude” as a “gender-neutral” term, especially when I’m excited, but if that ever makes you uncomfortable or you feel I’m not respecting your gender, you can tell me to stop because me getting to use a certain word is not even close to being as important as you being comfortable around me, okay?
This is a good attitude to have about the word “dude”
What is love?
Apparently only for white people.
Dude, you do realize this ad is Italian right? Those people are Italian, because it’s an Italian ad. Italian people are typically white. This ad is suppose to be about acceptance in THEIR country, why would they have models that don’t look like they’re from their country?
I’m gettin’ real tired of tumblr’s attitude. I’m probably going to get a lot of hate for this, but here we go.
Not everywhere is as mixed as North America. You go to places like Japan and it would be really weird to see a white person in their ad, it’s no different for places like Italy and Germany where people are mostly white. In North American we seem to have a decently even mix in a lot of areas so it’s a little off-putting when there’s only a certain race -generally all white people- depicted, where it’s completely normal and would appear really strange otherwise for other countries. Like you wouldn’t go to China and demand they show white people in their ads there, so why would you do the same for a country that has very few PoC compared to it’s population?
As the person above me said, why would they have models that don’t look like they’re from their country in their ads?
Seriously, I am Italian, and FUCK YOU. Our country has huge problems with homophobia, there isn’t even one single law to protect homosexuals. Most European countries have legalized marriage and adoption (or at least talked about it), but not Italy. The Catholic community does everything they can to block the law against homophobia. Last month, a 14 years-old killed himself because he was gay. You have no idea how much that kind of thing matters in Italy, all you can fucking do is whine about Tumblr about the fact that they are all white. Yes, in Italy the majority of the population is indeed white. Not the rest of the world is like fucking North America. So before you come whining about it on Tumblr, get your facts right.
I love it when reality slaps the fuck out of Tumblr.
South Carolina legislators are looking to eliminate Obamacare in their state under State House bill H 3101, the Daily Caller reported on Monday.
JFC, I don’t want to rely on my ex for health care, but since I’ve been forced back into this horrible state, I have no choice. And it pisses me off.
Also, every doctor here wants $1,000-$2,000 payment a year for the “privilege” of being able to make appointments with them. And I still have to pay my copay/the insurance still pays them.
I am pissed. I am scared. I have too many health issues, physical and mental. In CO I was getting help and I had great treatment. Now I’m stranded, and can’t afford help, and can’t find the right kinds of doctors.
It was bad enough here when I was on my parent’s insurance. It was worse when I lost that at 19. Even worse when I was diagnosed with my disorders, denied life insurance, and forced to pay a high premium for insurance that didn’t cover more than a sinus infection.
It was bad enough when I was told, for years, I could not be examined for my migraines. Because at age 17 I mentioned them to a doctor and got a prescription. After that, when I got coverage back at age 21, my insurance would not cover treatment and testing. When I changed jobs a year later, and got different insurance, I had to wait again.
It was bad enough when my family doctor of 16 years refused to see me without $200 up front, because I had no insurance. And so I got sicker and sicker, ended up in the ER twice because no doctor would take me because I didn’t have money or insurance.
And now here I am again, sick and scared, with less than $50 to my name and no source of income. I’m searching, but there are so few jobs here. I’ll be lucky if I get 20 hours a week making $8 an hour.
I’m scared, and all they care about is their freedom to shit on the poor.
This fucking show
The entire banning of a language is never okay.
Like, how can you even entertain the idea?
The levels of radiation in the area have set a new record for outdoor exposure, Japanese media reported.
It is so bad that in some areas just 20 minutes of exposure is fatal.
Ever accidentally throw something away and then later realize you actually needed it? Haha i did this with my life
