Now just a blog consisting of random things that pique my interest. Sometimes nsfw, will be tagged.Ask me anything, but I'd rather it be about pokemon
Like people being rude to fast food employees.I mean sure they’re not promising 5 star gourmet food (and hardly any fast food joint would promise that) but they’re still providing you food. You get to avoid the hassle of preparing the food yourself and all you have to give in return is just a small bit of money.
Heck, since they’re the ones directly involved with making you your food, wouldn’t you want to be especially courteous? It just seems to me that if you treat an employee well then they won’t be thinking “Great, another ungrateful jerk” and instead “Hey that guy was kind of nice” and with a better attitude towards who they’re serving they might put more effort into their work and provide better food.
- Helen Keller, 1911
Why did we learn about Helen Keller’s childhood in school and not about the socialist and feminist advocacy that was her focus for the vast majority of her adult life? She was a suffragette and a disability rights activist! She helped to found the ACLU! She was a member of the Wobblies! She supported birth control and the rights of sex workers! In school her story always ended when she went off to college and “became a writer.” She was a badass political activist, not an inspirational disability trope, and if we learned about that we would think of her as more than just a joke in Apples to Apples.
Why did I never learn about this?
