I think Boyfriend’s cat likes me now though. He’ll sleep on the bed with me and he’ll actually willingly sit in my lap for a few minutes at a time.
And this morning when I was trying to get ready he kept sitting back on his hind legs and putting his front paws on my leg ;_; I couldn’t stay still for more than a few seconds without him coming over to headbutt me for pats.
He also does this thing where he’ll grab your hand, lick it, and then use your hand to groom himself.
People are mad about using slurs but they have called me slurs as well. I’ve been called “straightie” a lot, which has all the makings of a slur. Cishet isn’t a slur but the derogatory way it is used means it might as well be. Think before you type.
By a large majority, Americans support raising the minimum wage, according to a CBS News Poll done from Nov. 15 through 18. The poll, which surveyed 1,010 Americans, found that 69 percent of respondents approved of raising the minimum wage, while 25 percent opposed the idea.
Thirty-three percent said they backed raising the wage to $9 an hour, while 36 percent supported an increase to $10.10 an hour, the amount that Congressional Democrats are pushing.
Republicans support an increase by 57 percent to 38 percent, Democrats by 84 percent to 11 percent and independents by 64 percent to 29 percent.
“First, there is no naturalized gendered body. All of our bodies are modified with regard to gender, whether we seek out surgery or take hormones or not. All of us engage in or have engaged in processes of gender body modification (diets, shaving, exercise regimes, clothing choices, vitamins, birth control. etc) that alter our bodies,
just as we’ve all been subjected to gender related processes that altered our bodies (being fed differently because of our gender, being given or denied proper medical care because of our gender, using dangerous products that are on the market only because of their relationship to gender norms, etc). The isolating of only some of these processes for critique, while ignoring others, is a classic exercise in domination. To see trans body alteration as participating and furthering binary gender, to put trans people’s gender practices under a microscope while maintaining blindness to more familiar and traditional, but no less active and important gender practices of non-trans people, is exactly what the transphobic medical establishment has always done.”—Dress to Kill, Fight to Win (via ninjabikeslut)
