the completed plus size clothing bingo card.

wtfplus:

this is wholly unrelated to plus size clothing, good or bad*, but i just made this pearl couscous “macaroni” and cheese and it was like, the best thing i’ve ever eaten and took *less time than kraft macaroni and cheese*.  i doubled the recipe, and it was under $5 for enough food for two big meals for two people who eat a lot.  it’s super easy to modify- think about it like a macaroni and cheese base; add peas, ham, hot dogs, taco meat, peppers and onions, hot sauce, etc.

alsooooo if you don’t/can’t eat dairy, it would probably be good with any kind of milk substitute (soy or almond milk or creamer, tofu cream cheese, tofu sour cream, coconut milk, etc.) and some nutritional yeast.  if you forgo any kind of milk substitute, it’s more like a risotto than mac and cheese (and also is just.. the regular preparation of pearl couscous but whatever).

p.s. you can probably find israeli couscous for $$ in the ‘organic’ section with the ‘near east’ products, or for $ in the ‘kosher’ section at a regular grocery store.

p.p.s. i’d normally never post this here but i am like, blown away by how quick, cheap, easy, and GOOD this was.

* it was kind of related to plus size clothing because i wear plus size clothing and eat like ‘baby’s first birthday’ so i got a decent amount on my plus size clothing.

MADDIE BLAUSTEIN IS SO IMPORTANT YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA

She was inspired to come out as transexual after working on the episode “Go West Young Meowth.” She said she saw Meowth as a human trapped in a pokemon’s body, just as she saw herself as a woman trapped in a man’s body.

I didn’t know this!!

Hahahaha, it’s funny because she won’t get the job, since she is overqualified, and young part-time workers are cheaper.
Anyone who thinks our generation are lazy, unambitious layabouts… need to fucking lay down and die.The harsh reality is that we are over-ambitious. We are told we can’t get anywhere without a good college degree, so we study hard, and learn all we can, and walk away with a piece of paper and skills to back it up… then we fight to break into a workforce that is already filled.Every year more people graduate college, and the competition keeps mounting. There are a finite number of jobs, and the big-business fat-cats are cutting every corner they can to get away with NOT hiring new people, in order to maximise profits for themselves.
Then there’s the other problem of people having to work MULTIPLE jobs to support their families. Because they’re not paid enough to live on just one, they need to work three jobs to make ends meet - and that means two more jobs are filled by one person.I’m not saying it’s “greedy” to work multiple jobs - I’m saying it’s disgusting that people are paid so little in them that they need to.
How are we supposed to get jobs when the job market is so limited - there’s not even enough work for everyone to have ONE job, much less two or three.And the people who maintain the unemployment system have no idea how bad it really is - because they’ve had their jobs for twenty fucking years or more.
The only big company I know of that hired a graduate from my college did so because he invented a system that would cut their work down by almost 50%. That is what you need to do to get a job around here.
I have applied for every job I am qualified for.I have applied for jobs I am almost qualified for.I have applied for entry-level retail and fast-food jobs.I have gotten nowhere.
And now I have the added bonus of being unable to work much at all due to my health issues. The irony of this is that I will be better off on disability - I will have the freedom to stop searching for dead-end temporary jobs, and be able to take the time to work on my own games and such. Albeit slow and in small bursts.

Exactly. Also, employers want relevant experience, even for entry level jobs. Most job postings for waitressing require 2 years minimum of waitressing experience. I’m not even talking about fancy restaurants, I mean bussing tables in a pizza bar.
The problem of breaking into the job market at all is something seriously fucked up. No-one wants to hire an 18 year old when they can hire a 14 year old for the bare minimum. No-one will hire a 21 year old who is legally required to be paid a full adult wage if they can get anyone younger.
Getting into university was so important that I couldn’t even consider paid employment until finishing year 12. When I started applying for entry level fast food jobs at age 17? Rejection after rejection. If I got any feedback at all it was “Sorry, you don’t have any relevant experience” or ”We can’t know you’ll be able to cope with the work, since you’ve never worked before.”

AH, yes! How did I ever forget to mention the “experience barrier” - everyone trying to break into a job has to contend with this.
They want to take on someone with lots of experience - 2 years, 4 years, sometimes 6 or more.I see things like “4 years, and you must have worked on at least Multi-Million Dollar Film, or AAA Game.”
Now how on earth am I going to do that if I can’t even get my foot in the door at fucking McDonalds?
And you know why they can put “2 years minimum experience” on their ads? Because there are plenty of people out there looking for those jobs with 2, 4, 8 years of experience in that role who need a job desperately.
If you want to work, you basically have to know someone in the company. If your parents run the joint, you can get in there, and get that experience. My sister has no trouble finding work now, because she has a couple years of experience - she got her first job through a combination of lying, and making very good friends with a number of people who worked there, by going to parties.She barely made it through tenth grade.I graduated 12th grade and college.
She has a job.I don’t.
The system is broken, and only maintains a broken status quo. It puts barriers up to the outsiders, and puts minimal value on the insiders.Humans are expendable assets - if they fire you, there’s a queue of people waiting to do your job.
Then there are places that exploit internships.
Some companies bring students in to work for a month for free - the old “pay you in experience” trick. Problem is, they’re not giving you the level of experience you need to secure a job, and there are dozens more students and graduates who want to get those unpaid internships, So they can just keep getting work from desperate students and grads for free.
It’s like all those artists who get asked to do something “for the exposure” - the exposure is an empty promise, and they really just want you to work for free.
The big CEOs want to keep their billion-dollar bank accounts floating. And they don’t care who has to suffer and die for that to happen.
If you wonder why so many young people are trying to make a name for themselves on the internet - “social media stars” and whatnot - it’s because it’s about the only chance we have to do something and be noticed.We now have platforms where we can put ourselves out there, and try to make money based on our talents.
Is it a long-shot?Absolutely.
But it’s about the only chance we have.

This right here explains every thing read closely children cause it’s important

 The problem with this, is that in the case of minorities, more often than not, we face police brutality and mistreatment simply for existing. People of color, LGBT people, Trans* women in particular. Chicago has had serious and constant issues with the police arresting Trans* women and charging them with &#8220;soliciting&#8221; (ridiculous) simply for walk down the street to their apartment, minding their own business. Trans* women aren&#8217;t even able to feel safe going down the street to get groceries due to fear of police injustice. This happens so fucking much across the country, it&#8217;s actually been dubbed &#8220;walking while trans*&#8221;Here is an Article from &#8220;The Windy City Times&#8221; that gives further info on instances of &#8220;Walking while trans*&#8221; wrongful arrests in Chicago:http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/Walking-while-trans-in-Chicago/40947.htmlHow about the stop-and-frisk policy in NYC? Do you know the statistics for that? It&#8217;s a completely unnecessary law that only causes people of color to have to fear the police more than they already do. in 2013, 88% of people frisked were totally innocent. 56% of those frisked were black, 29% were Latino, and only a measly 11% were white. It&#8217;s laughable to think that it&#8217;s merely a coincidence that 9 out of 10 people who are stopped and frisked are people of color. More often than not, those people of color end up shamed, degraded, and both verbally and physically assaulted by the police in spite of being completely innocent.here is where I got those statistics, along with statistics for every year since 2002. They remain eerily unwavering across the decade:http://www.nyclu.org/content/stop-and-frisk-dataHere&#8217;s a video example of a young man who was a victim of racial profiling and police brutality during stop-and-frisk, plus in-depth interviews with police members on the racism, and brutality of the system:http://www.thenation.com/article/170413/stopped-and-frisked-being-fking-mutt-videoWhat about homeless people? I have heard stories that could keep you awake at night from people who have experienced homelessness in Chicago. Let&#8217;s see you get woken up from the sharp pain of a cop kicking you in the ribs while shouting &#8220;time to wake up, you worthless piece of shit, and get the fuck out of this park,&#8221; and then still find a way to tell people to stop fearing/hating the police in this country.The Capitol of South Carolina just made it fucking Illegal to be homeless!!!! If a homeless person is spotted within city limits, the police will pick them up and physically remove them from the city. Any cop that would actually comply with this is not a cop that deserves any praise. here&#8217;s an article on it, if you&#8217;re in disbelief:http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/08/28/south-carolina-capital-city-forces-its-homeless-out/unfortunately, we live in a society where minorities have to fear the police, instead of looking to them for safety and defense. Whenever I&#8217;m walking around in predominantly white neighborhoods, I have to be on guard at all times out of fear that someone who lives there will see me, assume I am a &#8220;hoodlum&#8221; due to my skin color and visibly ethnic hair, and call the cops on me, who most likely view me as a threat as well. Unfortunately, I have to be weary of where I am driving and during what time of day, out of fear of getting pulled over for driving while black. I have to be extra cautious of what I do, because statistically things that my white friends would get a slap on the wrist for doing, would send me straight to prison. In America today, we imprison more black people than South Africa during apartheid! I say fuck the police system because it&#8217;s so densely steeped in white privilege, transphobia, homophobia, classism, and racism. I acknowledge that there are some good cops, but they are few and far between and can not make-up for the majority who force me to live in fear.-Tayler Williams

Debunking more lies and racist misinformation about black men. Stop the ignorance and start to question why these myths exist in the first place, if not to demonize black men and promote the image of us as inherently criminal and violent and incapable of being educated.
