Millenials have steered the country to a place where diplomats tweet, gay marriage is turning mainstream, and running a blog can be more financially secure than a company gig. If we’ve done all that before 35, get ready.

A Republican political ad targeted at women.

I snorted.

Women deal with actual stalker-ish men online who use dating profiles to sexually harass us and demonstrate their desperate love of toxic masculinity supported by the Republican government at regular intervals and they have the audacity to make that advert?

a while ago i reblogged a paypal tutorial with some extra info / warnings in the comments, but the site updated so i figured i’d make my own tutorial with all that extra info added in

  •  if you’re new to paypal, “Send & Request” is at the top of the page - click that and then select “Pay for goods or services”
  • paypal says they will take a cut of the money when it gets to me but it’s only 2.9%, meaning anywhere from a couple of cents to a buck with the rates i usually charge. if you wanna be nice you can add that 2.9% in but i don’t expect people to and i don’t mind if you don’t
  • MAKE SURE YOU SELECT “NO ADDRESS NEEDED”. if you select the other options paypal will think i’m shipping you physical goods and expect me to cough up proof that i did - and they’ll flag me if i don’t!
  • as mentioned in the photoset, i need to be very careful about what people mention in the payment notes so that paypal doesn’t think i’m up to any fishy business and lock me down for it. all i need is for you to tell me who you are (tumblr / DA / FA account name etc) so i know who’s sending me what. if your blog name is ballslappingsex69.tumblr.com then consider using a nickname.

Always good reminders if you’re unfamiliar with how paypal works, because it’s so damn handy! That said, pretty sure trying to slap on charges to cover that 2.9% afterwards is against paypal policy and as the seller of whatever you’re expected to cover it. Adjust your prices accordingly BEFORE taking commissions/etc to account for it.

I’m continuously frustrated by paypal’s policies and habit of locking accounts over innocuous things, using some nebulous and poorly-defined “moral standards” to basically say “I know person A paid person B some money, but neither one has access to those funds anymore and I guess by default we get to keep it oh gosh golly.” It should never be anybody’s business how I make my money.

But in the meantime, find a workaround.

Guys, there is a much simpler way to do this and that is through INVOICES.  With an invoice, you control what is said, what the settings of the transaction is and I don’t believe there is ANY way for a customer to leave a comment (correct me if I’m wrong).  You can also send a reminder if the invoice hasn’t been paid.

All that you need to send an invoice is your customer’s email, they don’t even need a Pay Pal account, just a credit card to pay.

Take control, use invoices!

Here is a tutorial. GO FORTH AND INVOICE.

That is very true. Invoices are the best way to do it. I always forget about invoices.

Fox News shocked that Harvard students think the US is a greater threat to world peace than ISIS. Students who don’t agree with Fox are ‘twisted’, elitist and wrong apparently.

Quote 18 Oct 64,039 notes
Realize that anyone who tries to put you down about your appearance is assuming that it is your job to please them visually. Once you realize that it isn’t your job to be visually pleasing to anyone, ever, it becomes very hard for anyone to make you feel bad about yourself.

Link 17 Oct 4 notes The Expanding World of Poverty Capitalism»

In Orange County, Calif., the probation department’s “supervised electronic confinement program,” which monitors the movements of low-risk offenders, has been outsourced to a private company, Sentinel Offender Services. The company, by its own account, oversees case management, including breath alcohol and drug-testing services, “all at no cost to county taxpayers.”

Sentinel makes its money by getting the offenders on probation to pay for the company’s services. Charges can range from $35 to $100 a month.

The company boasts of having contracts with more than 200 government agencies, and it takes pride in the “development of offender funded programs where any of our services can be provided at no cost to the agency.”

Sentinel is a part of the expanding universe of poverty capitalism. In this unique sector of the economy, costs of essential government services are shifted to the poor.

Quote 17 Oct 3,994 notes

When people talk about how words reinforce the binary it is ONLY ever in regards to bisexuality. I have been to many LGBT spaces where this has come up. “We need to drop the B” or in a personal context “Oh I don’t use bisexual because it reinforces the binary.”

You know what never ever comes up after? How words like “gay” and “lesbian” are also reinforcing a gender binary. Nobody ever says “We need to change our name from “The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force to something more inclusive because gay and lesbian reinforce the gender binary” or “I don’t call myself a lesbian because it isn’t trans inclusive”

That is how I know this is just biphobia masquerading as “inclusive language”. Only bisexuals have to change, only our words are bad. Even though the bisexual community defines itself as “attraction to same/different genders or more than one gender” this binary, cis only men and women definition biphobia is constantly imposed from outside the community by cis people doing it in the name of people like me.
