For those who don’t understand social anxiety:


-It is not cute

-It is hell

-Want to order pizza? Too fucking bad

-Want to go to a party? Be prepared to want to leave after 5 seconds

-Need to ask a salesperson for a different size? Guess you’re not getting it

-Hungry but it’s crowded in the restaurant? No food for you

-Social anxiety SUCKS

-It keeps you from doing things you want to do

-It makes you feel like shit

-Stop romanticizing it

-Social anxiety is absolute HELL



Some people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”

By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:

  • Redheads
  • The entire state of Rhode Island
  • Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
  • Pacific Islanders
  • Australia

i promise to reblog this every time it shows up on my dash

America’s hatred of welfare date back to politicians using a manufactured image of the black “welfare queen” to create collective hatred and harness that racist energy to get votes for office. 

furthermore: the woman that ronald reagan first used that term to describe was actually a white women who sometimes pretended to be black. she was also an insane sociopath who murdered people and kidnapped and sold children. totally typical story.

today at work i asked a customer if he wanted french vanilla creamer with his coffee and he said no because he wanted the “heterosexual” creamer instead and it just blows my mind that straight people say shit about how queer people “force our sexuality on them” because i have never met a single queer person who has done something like assign a sexuality to coffee creamer

what does heterosexual creamer even mean

no homogenized milk
