Police swooped on the homeless, grabbing sleeping bags and food parcels donated by the public, in co-ordinated raids around the borough.
This is absolutely barbaric and incredibly hard to believe.
I can believe this. It’s Laandan. If something like this is going to happen in the UK, it’ll invariably happen in London.
Also, British ‘authority figures’ at the moment seem to think that ‘being poor’ is something people do just to be annoying. Taking sleeping bags away from those pesky homeless types is not ‘unfair’, it’s sending them the message that their workshy, irresponsible ways won’t be tolerated. They ought to write a nice CV on a computer they don’t have and send it to some employers who only hire people with fixed addresses. Why don’t they just do that, eh?
I am an intelligent, eloquent, well-mannered young woman who just so happens to say “fuck” a lot.
“so, what do you do for a living?”
men angry at laptops with hammers
ah yes. my gender is blue with pink leg
so this is killing me cause my mind immediately thought.
and this is why im not allowed to be part of actual serious discussions.
i DONT UNDERSTAND THIS AT ALL I KEEP IMAGINING
I feel particularly close to this one:
THIS POST GET’S MORE FUCKIN HILARIOUS EVERY TIME I SEE IT!
I made a thing aswell.
“Old Economy Steve”
mad as hell
My dad once told me that sometimes when he’d lose a job he’d have another one before he went home and I just…
WHAT IS THE FUCKING POINT OF THAT STORY. THAT IS NOT RELEVANT TO MY JOB HUNT. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A JOB FOR OVER A YEAR, DON’T TELL ME ABOUT HOW JOB HUNTING USED TO BE.
Oh my God. All of this. I’m looking for a job right now and it’s shit.
I have zero luck trying to find a second job to fund my transition…
Oh, wait. I forgot. Those people have actual problems.
I’m from a “third world country” and to add to that I’m from a very conservative predominantly Muslim country. I’m about to drop a BOMB SHELL on you, bro.
There are gay people. There are genderqueer people. There are trans* people. But they can’t be open about it for the most part because they may even be shunned by their own family. We are all products of our society and there is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with exploring yourself and your feelings and your identity.
If it’s safe and you can share it why the fuck not? Because if someone has the audacity to put a name to their identity then we can’t deal with poverty or racism?
No shut up.
Also here are some more fun facts:
- We have internet!
- We have sex!
- I had a pet cat!
- I was a specialized education teacher! (And I’m a woman! WHAT!)
- We had feminism!
- We had hardcore and punk and rap shows/Music scene!
- Cable TV!
- Parks and playgrounds!
- Medical care!
- Cell phones!
- ALL THIS AND MUCH MUCH MORE.
All this and I’m still worried about silly things like racism, sexism and cissexism! And I still think you’re ridiculous and have made absolutely zero points!
I’m sorry you think we’re too primitive to know about gender identity.
Plus, an enormous number of societies have historically contained people who identified as some sort of ‘third gender’ or ‘other gender’. They may not call it ‘genderqueer’, or think of it in the same way people in OP’s country do, but it’s the same general idea.
Hijras are a good example. They live in a country which still has significant problems with poverty- and yet they could sensibly be described as genderqueer.
