White feminists:



When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
  • Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
  • Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.

Intersectionality matters.

I will keep reblogging this to point out that disabled people, including men, make 22 cents on the dollar. Mostly because it is legal to pay us below minimum wage, but whatevs.

I got off the train in Sydney at museum station once (I mixed it up with st James) and after getting out the ramp to help me off, the attendant asked how exactly I planned to make it up the stairs (there’s no lift).
I caught the next train.

And I believe that the darkness reminds us where light can be.
I know that your heart is still beating, beating darling.
I believe that you fell so you can land next to me. x

peach-blossom-spring just told me that Ulta is having a 40% off NYX sale so now I’m telling you! Pick up a few shades of the Macaron colors and some of the Matte shades, they’re really lovely and for $3-4 a total steal. The Cake Brow Powder is a good powder to try out too, if you need a cheap alternative to Anastasia.

"tumblr hates recovery" aka "i have identified one space in the world that isn’t overwhelmingly hostile towards people with mental illnesses, one space where people have respite from being told they are lazy, they’re broken, they aren’t trying hard enough, and i can’t stand it. i can’t stand the idea that disabled people might think for even a second that just surviving is good enough, that the level they function at naturally is acceptable and deserves accommodation"

When someone works for less pay than she can live on — when, for example, she goes hungry so that you can eat more cheaply and conveniently — then she has made a great sacrifice for you, she has made you a gift of some part of her abilities, her health, and her life. The ‘working poor,’ as they are approvingly termed, are in fact the major philanthropists of our society. They neglect their own children so that the children of others will be cared for; they live in substandard housing so that other homes will be shiny and perfect; they endure privation so that inflation will be low and stock prices high. To be a member of the working poor is to be an anonymous donor, a nameless benefactor, to everyone else.

Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.

Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.

It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …

bisexual activist and queer theory blogger Patrick RichardsFink 

this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1

A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes

A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes

A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes

A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes

A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes

That’s some bullshit right there.

Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.

Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.
