You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).

Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
DITTO THE PREACH.
You can’t buy hot/already cooked food either.
Really great assessment of privilege and how to manage it, made by Robot Hugs
Many things for me to think about. I stand in a position of considerable privilege and it’s only been recently that I’ve started examining it- or even really being aware that there is something to examine.
Many things to think about.
Above, you see a genuine ad from Popular Science (1968), courtesy of newhousebooks. Below is the image that popped into my mind when I first saw it. Perhaps there IS an upside to sexist retro advertising after all?
One of the reasons why Emma Watson is one of the best female role-models of our time. She’s so underrated.

This website lets you link to sites without helping their page rank on google (ie, promoting them).
one of the ways that google determines the importance of a page is by how many other pages link to that one page.
but it doesn’t distinguish between criticism or praise. so if you write a post slamming some ignorant article, you make it more likely that other ppl will find that article when they run a search.
but if you use donotlink… this doesn’t happen. a very useful tool.

How Canadians are hatched.
The eggs are laid in mudbeds in the early fall, and will hatch mid-winter as Pucklings to forage for syrup amongst the elk.
can my Canadian friends confirm or deny this?
I remember my first ice patch, it was magical
I still remember the day of my hatching. As I broke through the ice I saw the figure of something not exactly human. It was the Alpha Moose. The leader of the Moose pack that raised me until my 10th birthday, when they released me into the city, to live among the humans.
I love how so many people have been confused and amused by that guy in the Sochi Olympics who was at the top of the slopestyle track during the men’s competition just casually knitting away
