A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

Some Walmart (WMT) employees are not happy about a new mandatory “dress code” or the fact that workers have to pay for clothes to comply with that dress code out of their own pockets.
The “new look” calls for employees to wear a navy blue or a white polo shirt and khaki or black pants or skirts. It also requires the return of the Walmart vest, but the company will pay for that.
At issue is whether the new rules about what employees can wear amount to a “uniform” or a “dress code.” The U.S. Department of Labor says companies must pay for a “uniform,” but not clothes required to comply with a “dress code.”
So is it legal for Walmart to require its employees to pay for a polo shirt and pants of a certain color?
According to one legal expert, Walmart employees who are unhappy about having to pay up may have an uphill battle. Federal Advocacy Coordinator at the National Employment Law Project, Judy Conti, told The Guardian that what Walmart is doing is legal.
“When an employer selects clothing you could wear anywhere else, they are not required to pay for it,” Conti said. “Black or khaki pants – it doesn’t come more basic than that. White or navy blue shirt: now, maybe you don’t wear white or maybe you don’t wear navy, but I’ll bet you wear one of them.”
Heidi Moore of The Guardian tells Yahoo Finance she thinks Walmart is asking too much of employees who already make too little.
“It is pretty much an egregious issue… it’s a huge chunk of their take-home pay and Walmart employees have been complaining for years - and even staging protests and walk-outs – that they are not paid enough, that they’re not paid a living wage.”
Walmart says its average full-time hourly wage in the United States is $12.92. The company says employees are free to buy the clothes anywhere, however, Walmart also has extended an offer for employees to buy the clothes from Walmart for a 10% discount. If employees buy dress-code appropriate clothes (2 shirts and 2 pairs of pants) from the company’s own website, that would add up to abour $48, after the company discount of 10%, which Moore says is “tiny” compared to other retailers’ discounts.
"If you work at any other store, whether it’s Macy’s (M) or Club Monaco, Urban Outfitters, you get 50% discounts, sometimes 60% discounts, so it’s also pretty chintzy on that front,” she said.
My work basically did this a few years back. When I first stared they pretty much provided everything for at least two uniforms and would replace them with in reason. If you lost your hat or apron or jacket too often they would some times charge a base or lower cost for replacing them. Mind you it was rather lenient and was mostly to get workers to respect and care for their uniform.
now all they offer is the jacket, hat, and apron. You provided work approved pants, and under shirt and it takes them forever to replace uniforms even when falling apart. I’ve literately got massive holes in my armpit area’s from uniforms I’ve had for well over two years.
Point being this fucking sucks and Walmart’s employees have a good reason to be pissed particularly with the insulting 10% discount.
Walmart says it’s average full-time hourly wage is $12.92.
Which neatly leaves out their part-time employees, who are almost certainly getting paid less.
I’ve been an employee of Walmart for 4 years now, over 2 of which have been as a full-time employee, and I’m not even making $10/hr.
Yeah, it’s shitty that literally none of the clothes I wear for work will be eligible to wear due to the dress code at the end of the month. But whatever, shit happens, stuff breaks. Let’s move on with our lives.
So yeah I can see how many fingers you’re holding up
THIS IS VERY ACCURATE
THIS IS VERY BEAUTIFUL
Is this accurate? Is this what it’s actually like to not be able to see clearly?
it’s not quite though because you actually also see everything as either slightly or noticeably smaller than with your glasses off/in your peripheral vision, depending on how strong your prescription is (at least this is how it is with me, any farsighted people are free to correct me if their prescriptions have different effect)
Twilight may be trash but at least they cast actual native americans to play natives
That is a serious burn for a LOT of movies. I’m not sure we have enough burn cream for this.
