REBELS: LAVERNE COX - NOMINATED BY NATASHA LYONNE
"Laverne stands up for what she believes in and does so with grace and humility,” says her costar and nominator Natasha Lyonne. “She is one of a kind: a game changer and a maverick who not only expands closed minds but educates them. She is the living embodiment of what she believes in, and the inevitable fallout of that is she inspires others to tell their own truths.”

Just HOW much personal responsibility does your generation need to shed before you get it through your thick skulls that it only costs $20 for a decent external hard drive these days? :|

parteira:

when nurses or doctors act mean and snappy, people are majority like “they are probably having a long shift and working really hard because they are doctors/nurses”

however, when someone in retail or service is not putting up with a customer’s bullshit or is not smiling, we get lambasted with “you’re not gonna get your tips working like that”, “smile more.” “customer’s always right”, “do your job”, “if you can’t do this then go do something else.”

we’re not considered good enough because our jobs are not “good enough” - even though without any of us, the entire economy would shut down. That’s right - the entire world as we know it would cease to function without us working it. Doctors will still be doctoring, yes, but guess who makes the medical supplies? Guess who delivers them? Guess who makes the paper to print reports on?

We don’t get the excuse that we’re working too hard - because our “work” isn’t considered valid or hard. Even though we are working just as long hours, physically demanding, and on our feet during the whole shift. The kicker is, we are even paid significantly less.

So next time someone in retail is rolling their eyes at you, or isn’t smiling when you want them to, or their face looks forced, don’t fucking give a shit. It doesn’t matter. They are human. Shit can be sour. They have to be at work or we will die.

How the Logic of "Friendzoning" Would Work If Applied in Other Instances:
*Man walks into a store and finds employee*
Man:Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!
Employee:Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?
Man:I never filled out an application.
Employee:Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.
Man:No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!
Employee:Well, but that doesn't-
Man:AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!
Employee:But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.
Man:OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!
Employee:Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?
Man:Well no, but what does that matter?
Employee:...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.
Man:Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.
Employee:That...doesn't make any sense.
Man:NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
Employee:
Man:
Employee:
Man:Fuck you, slut.
