My blog is like Gretchen Wiener's hair: it's full of secrets. Here I reveal my oft-hidden passion for social justice, makeup/fashion, porn, and all the fandoms. My name's Julie, and I'm a white bi woman trying to learn about oppression and how to be a better ally. INFP. Please don't call me a girl, I prefer to be called a woman; however, I prefer “sir,” not “ma’am” or “miss.” Most of my posts involve trigger warnings. I’ll do my best to keep up with those. If you see anything labeled incorrectly or not at all, please let me know. In the same vein, if I say something oppressive please call me out if you feel comfortable and/or willing. I fuck up and would appreciate it, though of course no one has to.
Tell me about it, stud

they both look a little nervous about what the other one might write

This country is really absurd sometimes…
But we know we love it, though.
that’s why when I say “sorry” to ppl in the states they always dismiss my display of empathy saying “why are you saying sorry? it’s not your fault.” of course it’s not my fault! I want to help u feel bettah gawddd
"Sorry" means something different in Canada than it does in other places.
In Canada, if something bad happens and you say sorry, it means “I acknowledge that you have been inconvenienced or otherwise harmed, and I am expressing sympathy. I’d prefer it if the bad thing had not happened.”
We apologize for things constantly.
"Sorry I’m late, traffic was horrible!"
Sorry about the traffic.
"Ugh, I think I caught the flu!"
Sorry you have the flu. That must be unpleasant.
"My house was burglarized and everything of value stolen!"
Oh wow, I’m sorry. That’s a terrible experience.
And so on. It’s rude not to apologize, because failing to apologize suggests you do not care.
There is even commercials up here in Canada about how we Canadians like to apologize for everything.
I am Canada
An officer threatens to kill a journalist and those around him since he’s not credential press. He then threatens everyone around the guy with live rounds. If you don’t know what those are, they’re real bullets.
The journalist tried to ask his name but all the officer said was “Go fuck yourself”.
The tag trending for this guy on twitter, funny enough, is #officergofuckyourself.
Please spread, Ferguson is not safe. Don’t forget about it.
