Your body isn’t disgusting. It’s a machine that carries your consciousness - a living vehicle that enables you to think and to feel and to live and to love. It protects you from harm and changes its shape to adapt to anything life throws at you. Your body is a great body, no matter what the outer shell looks like, because it is the vehicle for your all important soul.

Don’t worry: It’s cute! Penguins are social, learning creatures by nature and adapt to training very well; plus, these ones were raised by people anyway, so they’re used to our shenanigans. If they were uncomfortable or frightened, they would fight the clothes and freak out. These guys are okay, and they might even be having a good time.

This is pretty sad. Some of these are blatantly racist and exclusionary, like the asshole with the rice comment. Some of them are fuckin’ rude, like the person who had her space invaded by the hat-jacker or those of African heritage who get clicked at. (Seriously? Awful.) But… some of them are things I’ve asked my friends of alternate ancestry / provenance. My friend is 2nd generation Japanese, and I remember being surprised when I found out he was taking Japanese classes back in high school. I, like many other naive teenagers, made an assumption about his home life. The cool thing about him was that he explained it to me - like he had probably done a bunch of times for others, I now realize - and we were still friends after that. I also had a Sudanese classmate whom I asked some questions about Africa. I don’t remember them all, but I hope they didn’t make him feel bad. (They probably did. Shit. :c ) Where does the line between curiosity about other heritages cross the line into “microaggressions?” I’d like to be able to say that some of these quotes came from people who are simply curious, and tactless, and naive. But then again, I’m 6th generation Irish (read: white as hell) and it’s probably not okay for me to justify these questions, and therefore minimize these people’s feelings, by saying, “It’s curiosity coming from people who are too stupid to phrase it differently.” TL;DR: I am white but not racist, and asked some of these questions when I was too naive/stupid to know that this was hurtful. I was fortunate enough to have friends who told me when I was being hurtful, so I could learn better. On behalf of white folks who truly don’t hate you, and are just dumb sometimes: sorry.

$15/hr to work a job which requires no education and no skills is absurd. Management should make that, yes. Those people actually have to have a grip on finance, time management and problem solving and are often required to work 60+ hours a week. The average button pushing cashier, line cook or drive through worker with no education does not do the work to justify a wage higher than what they currently make. If you want to make more money, make more of yourself. I worked fast food for $5.25/hr. I waitressed for $2.15/hr. I wanted more out of my life, and I went and got it. My current job requires an education, experience and a functional, modern skill set and I STILL make under $15/hr. People need to be realistic - taking food orders and cleaning up afterward is not a $15/hr job.
Response to The Rich Guys With Lions Of Instagram:
Incorrect. Tiger x Lion crossbreeding, the offspring of which are called Ligers, result in massive cats with striations of varying length. “Spots” often occur because of the gene mutations inherent in such a cross; a long stripe is shortened so much that it looks like a spot. Not to mention, leopards are also about 1/4 that size. *the more you know*
