People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers”  your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am. 

You can’t demand a service while simultaneously degrading those who provide it for you.

maids, waitresses, janitors, garbage collectors, and construction workers.

Here’s a friendly reminder:

caffeinatedfeminist:

-You cannot be sexist toward men. Sexism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against men but you CANNOT be sexist toward them.

-You cannot be racist towards white people. Racism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against white people but you CANNOT be racist toward them.

This is not difficult.

what saying “not all men” actually does:

  • refuses to acknowledge that gender violence happens too often
  • takes the focus off the men who are violent and/or misogynistic
  • refuses to acknowledge that even good guys can enable the problem
  • makes the conversation about men and semantics instead of the epidemic levels of violence against women

what saying “not all men” does not do:

  • reveal a fascinating new insight that we didn’t know
