This is wrong and inaccurate. And, of course, I have a LOT to sat about this. Let's begin a LONG LONG thread --

#MinimumWage #Capitalism #WorkersRights 1 -- First of all, it is a gross misconception that minimum wage jobs are supposed to be practice for high school kids and college kids to earn a little bit of money. FDR straight up said when establishing the Minimum Wage that it was meant to be a "Living Wage"

All right, I have LOTS of thoughts, unsurprisingly. I am a gamer, a woman, I used to play WoW, I currently play FFXIV, and, as a writer, at one point I wanted to work crafting stories for Blizzard. Reading this, I'm glad I never got that opportunity. #FF14 #MMORPG #Warcraft 1/20 I am legitimately not surprised by these complaints.

In general, I respect Jimmy Dore, which is what makes the argument I'm having so wild and mind-blowing right now. Dore is arguing that keeping a mask mandate is anti-science and uses this quote.

(LONG THREAD) A little over a week ago, Gillette released their “The Best Men Can Be” ad, and the internet exploded. Gillette said: “Men, we can do better.” A very vocal, very male portion of the internet burst through the wall like the Kool-Aid Man to bay: “NOT ALL MEN!” A lot of people agreed with them, though. They agreed that it was time more men started speaking out against a “Boys will be Boys” culture, a culture where women are, even unintentionally, discounted. That lasted about a week.

More on the #CovingtonCatholic debacle. PART 2 -- AFTERMATH AND ANALYSIS (now with even more sources) There appears to be a horrible culture brewing at CCH. It is, as stated, an all male school staffed entirely by a white administration. Any students of diversity are pretty much hazed.

My final(ish) take on the #CovingtonCatholic debacle. PREPARE YOURSELF! Part 1 -- THE INCIDENT

Even watching the full, 2 hour video does not exonerate those boys. People who want them to be innocent point to it as: "They were provoked." The student's mother came out with: "Those black muslims made those boys act that way." Here's where I call bull.
