"We have a good, solid Bible quote for our youth ministry, but we need a secular quote too. Some charismatic, influential person whom nobody would expect us to use, so we feel hip and relevant. I know! HOW ABOUT HITLER?"
Here is some recent news coverage on the beginnings of gentrification coming to the northwest Bronx:
“That type of letter is not a renewed-lease-letter; it’s a put-people-out letter,” said Christian Ramos, the vice president of the Kingsbridge Road Merchants Association.

“It’s frustrating. You don’t know if you’re coming or going,” said Bass, who feels as though it’s a type of legal eviction. “That’s just giving us three weeks to increase our rent, make a decision, get out, stay. This is really horrible. And these are families trying to stay.”
The world’s largest ice rink complex is coming — but many local businesses likely won’t be there to see it.

Tenants say a new landlord is starting to double their rents because the Kingsbridge Armory is reopening as a huge ice skating center in a few years, and property values are already starting to skyrocket.
This is what we’re doing to stop it: People Power Movement Fighting Gentrification in the Bronx
So I was in the Bronx at my boyfriends house and admittedly, I am never in the Bronx aside from those 4 months I spent living there in ‘94 when I was an infant, I go there like once every two years so I don’t really see the demographic changing as much as someone like my bf would since his family is there and he frequently moves from his grandmothers house in Washington Heights to his mothers house in the South Bronx.
So anyways, I was there last Sunday and I noticed that there were a lot of white people. I found it a bit surprising to see all these white people riding bikes in the Projects and seeing organic bread shops with signs that say “coming soon” and I asked my bf about it and all he said was “gentrification”. The more we talked, the more I realized that just like Washington Heights, white people are starting to gentrify the Bronx. Schools closed down, rent increased and is about $2,000 for my bf’s family (which is a little less than my rent and I live in a ‘nice’ neighborhood in Manhattan). I gotta admit, it was really surprising and strange to see so many white people. I am really interested to learn more about the getrification process in the Bronx.
i don’t care if it’s a only a joke, please don’t make comments about how someone’s choice of field of study isn’t going to take them anywhere because it can be a great source of stress and your joke won’t help.
also, destroy the idea that we should only pursue dreams if they are likely to give you status in this capitalist piece-of-shit society.
This is so important!
I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.
Don’t be me.
As an interviewer I would love people to ask me these sorts of questions.
From an HR/legal standpoint, most interviewers wouldn’t answer that last question - too much of a mine-field. Instead, ask if there’s anything else about your qualifications or experience that they would like to explore in the interview. This allows you to keep control of the discussion of your past performance and doesn’t place the interviewer in a negative mind-space.
Good luck with your job search :)
Not all women are the owners of a uterus, and not all owners of a uterus are women. A transgender man—that is, a man who was assigned female at birth—may very well have a uterus, may become pregnant, and may very well need the same access to reproductive health options as your average cisgender woman. The same can be said for non-binary individuals who were assigned female at birth. As people who don’t identify as a woman or a man (though they may identify themselves as both, neither, or a combination of the two), some may feel that this language erases their identity or leaves them out. Yes, these people may have a uterus—but it’s not a “lady part.”
While there’s little doubt that women make up the largest segment of uterus-owning individuals, this name further ostracizes oft-overlooked members of society like trans men and non-binary individuals who were assigned female at birth. To exclude them in this, an organization aimed at educating the public on the issue of reproductive health, would seem to negate the organization’s stated goals by erasing identities and perpetuating the already stressful and exclusionary culture these individuals are forced to inhabit.
what is the point of gay straight alliances why would i want to be in an alliance with straight people
Because we outnumber you.
I’m not saying it’s fair. I’m saying it’s true.
fruit flies outnumber us too but you don’t see me being in an alliance with them
Fruit flies have very little influence on our lives apart from being a nuisance
not seeing many differences between fruit flies and straight allies
