WinCo is an employee owned grocery chain which pays its 15,000 workers at least $11/hour, offers health and dental insurance-even for part-time staff, and invests 20% of an employee’s salary into a pension which has turned 400 cashiers and clerks into millionaires. They are Wal-Mart’s worst nightmare.
The food is cheaper
The produce is fresher!

Where can I find this marvel?
They’re a west coast operation, nothing east of Texas, I think. But they’re great, and I hope you guys get them soon!

People are sending him racist messages telling him it’s not gonna happen and he doesn’t belong in Disney World over this post. So we’re gonna reblog it even more.
I remember this guy! Wow, it’s still only a little bit over half. Rebloggan’!
I don’t normally do these ‘reblog if’ things, but hell, if it annoys racists, why not.
That’s kinda where I stand on things. I mostly ignore them, but kid, YOU’RE GOIN’ TO DISNEY WORLD.
I love how racists came to the party and we promptly got another 100k reblogs. Like, WE ARE WEE AND SOMETIMES PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE, BUT FUCK YOU, HE’S GONNA RIDE THE HAUNTED MANSION UNTIL HE’S DONE.
EVERYONE GO TO DISNEYWORLD!!! DISNEY WORLD FOR EVERYONE!!!

stabilized star trek shot
The more you watch it the funnier it becomes. Magic!
hahahaha Uhura what are you doing??
"I shall solve this gravity stabilization problem with interpretive dance!"
hahahaha right? also, is it weird that Kirk and Uhura are falling one way and everyone else is falling another way?
I choose to interpret this as everybody except the crew member seated immediately behind Kirk falling into the very back corner of the room. But that one guy ruins the illusion…
I NEVER KNEW THIS
I NEVER KNEW THAT WAS WHAT AMERICANS MEANT WHEN THEY SAID “QUITE”
WHY DIDN’T ANYBODY TELL ME
SUDDENLY THAT ONE SONG THAT GOES “HELLO I MISS YOU QUITE TERRIBLY” MAKES LIKE A MILLION TIMES MORE SENSE

i feel like this means i’ve been overestimating your enthusiasm about things for my entire life
We’re never as enthusiastic as you think we are.
One could say that you’ve always been quite enthusiastic, even.
trans women in seattle: do not see dr rob killian
he treats trans women as if they were cis men, and will threaten to take away your hormones if you disagree with him (and will go through with it!)
Huh. A very quick search for this guy’s name also comes up with this:
In January 2013 the Medical Commission charged physician Robert K. Killian (MD00033951) with unprofessional conduct. Killian allegedly misused his prescriptive authority to order large quantities of controlled substances for his own use on several occasions. He also allegedly displayed a pattern of disruptive behavior with office staff and patients that affected patient care.
While internet users in the US struggle with expensive and slow connections provided by cable corporations, Chattanooga, Tennessee’s fiber-optic network, “The Gig”, is a taxpayer-owned public utility that boasts internet speeds 50 times faster than the rest of the country.
SHARE this if the FCC should dump their plans to end net neutrality and classify the internet as a public utility.

Literally all you need to know about tumblr user idislikecispeople.
Tell that to the 42% who have attempted (or actually managed) to kill themselves.
And let me tell you, saying you’re gonna kill yourself to play victim is not part of that 42%. It’s just emotional manipulation.
Let me ask you this: what would you say to that 42%?
I mean, would you rather we tell them something like
"Your life will always be awful. The despair you feel now will never get better, only worse. Nobody makes it out alive. It never gets better. There is nothing to celebrate. Nothing to look forward to. Nothing to be proud about. What you feel now is all you will ever feel."?
Have you never heard of whistling in the dark?
Have you never heard the concept of laughing past the graveyard?
Or even just faking it until you make it?
When we talk about being happy that we’re trans or being proud to be trans, that’s not a sign that we’ve somehow escaped the twin terrors of dysphoria and cissexism unscathed. It’s a way of emphasizing that we’ve (so far) made it past them alive.
I’ll tell you something that might have been obvious to someone with more empathy or someone who was less alert for “fakes” and “enemies” and more interested in people as human beings.
At least 50 percent of the time when you see someone making a “trans girls rock!” post or “I’m so glad I’m trans”, that person—or someone they know is watching—has just had a terrible experience as part of a terrible day, as part of what is probably a terrible life in objective terms like health, economics, personal security, et cetera.
(You know, the life of a trans person.)
And what you’re seeing is a big part of how we deal with it. Celebrating our survival—recognizing that getting by is a triumph when the odds are stacked against you—is a way of picking ourselves up to keep going when—objectively, logically—we shouldn’t be able to.
I’m not saying that’s the case here. I’m not saying that’s the case every time. Because not every day is the worst. Not every experience is terrible. And sometimes, we struggle through the tunnel long enough without dying to come out the other side.
But when that happens, are we supposed to stop celebrating? Are we supposed to hide our light and deny that there’s any chance of survival, much less victory?
Trans pride is so important to trans survival.
Trans pride is not aggression, it is defense.
Trans pride might be the shield that’s deflecting the rocks life is throwing at someone. It might be the timbers propping up the tunnel that’s threatening to crash down on their heads at any moment. It might be the only compass they have to lead them through a land where there’s no map, no landmarks, and no guides.
Why would you want to take that away from someone?
