Really great assessment of privilege and how to manage it, made by Robot Hugs
Many things for me to think about. I stand in a position of considerable privilege and it’s only been recently that I’ve started examining it- or even really being aware that there is something to examine.
Many things to think about.
LOOK AT THIS BABY

this box of mike and ikes with only the red flavors is getting me through mid-term, shoutout to jewish-zombie-queen

You are the light of my life, you little asshole.
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
There is so much about this food stamp nonsense I want to unpack!!
You also can’t buy hot food with food stamps, so the chicken leg one really made me fucking laugh.

What would it be like if the U.S. was war torn like Syria? A new video by international NGO Save the Children imagines just that, through the eyes of a young girl:
The disturbing video features shots of the girl as she goes about her normal life over the course of a year. The video begins and ends with the child celebrating her birthday. Between shots, we see how her life changes dramatically as war ravages her country.
THIS IS SO IMPORTANT WHY DOES IT ONLY HAVE 32 NOTES
This is a really well-made video, but I’m not sure why the people who made it thought it had to be set in the US to garner sympathy.
I mean, I know why, I’m just disappointed that they did.
