i need feminism because i just found this in a magazine aimed at 8-13 year old girls and im going to throw up
The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York found that because Wang was an unpaid intern, not an employee, she could not bring a claim under the New York City Human Rights Law. This discrepancy’s not new: Unpaid interns aren’t covered by Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and while local laws can protect them, New York’s state and city laws do not.
Well no wonder employers fucking love unpaid internships so much. Not only do interns have no expectation of pay, but they have no expectation of basic rights either.
WOW. I cannot wait for this shit to go to the Supreme Court so the unpaid internship can die and be consigned to the annals of history forever.
FUCKING HELL no wonder it’s so fucking popular
Believe it or not

The Mormon owners of a Mexican cafe in Denver says that they have gotten death threats, hate calls and fake orders after refusing to allow Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to make campaign stop at their restaurant.
“One person who called said, ‘Watch your back. We know where live and we’re going after you,’” Oscar Aguirre, the son of the owners of Rosa Linda Mexican Cafe, told KMGH. “We just didn’t want our business used as a campaign stop.”
Aguirre explained that callers had been misinformed that the restaurant had refused to serve Romney.
“It was presented to us that [Romney] wanted to do a political stump here,” he said. “[He wanted to] talk about our small business [and] because we share our religious views with the candidate and are Latinos it would be great for him to do a campaign stop.”
“We did say ‘no’ because we are not Republicans, nor are we Democrats. We will welcome any sitting President of the United States. But, we did not want to be a campaign stop.”
The Mexican Cafe has also been flooded with fake orders and canceled reservations, according to Aguirre.
“Two people ordered $150 worth of food for lunch to be picked up today. They called later and said, ‘Oh, you’re the one who doesn’t want Romney in your business’ and they canceled their orders, even though the food had been prepared,” he recalled.
Aguirre said that the trouble began after an article published by Denver Westword earlier this week reported that their mother had refused the Romney campaign’s offer because “religion and politics don’t mix.”
“Since this article came out we have been getting hate emails, from people across the country, people sending us death threats and people calling us telling us we are racist… that they hope we go out of business,” Aguirre wrote in a letter on Wednesday. “If we do go out of business our Annual Thanksgiving Feast to the needy would end. Last year we fed 5500 meals, this year we may serve above 6000 meals.”
Why is it whenever you hear about shit like this happening (the death threats, the attempts to put a small business out of business) it always comes from the right?
The party of “family values” and “morals” will threaten to fucking kill you if you’re not on board with them.
This needs to go viral.
Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Mike Turzai (R) said that the voter ID law passed by the legislature would help deliver the state for Mitt Romney in November.
“Pro-Second Amendment? The Castle Doctrine, it’s done. First pro-life legislation - abortion facility regulations - in 22 years, done. Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done,” Turzai said at this weekend’s Republican State Committee meeting , according to PoliticsPA.com.
Dear National Media: Will you please stop pretending that voter ID laws have any goal other than to suppress the Democratic vote?
THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE TRYING TO BREAK INTO NEWLY PURCHASED HOME
(NEWSER) – The Kalonji family got a nasty surprise when it tried to change the locks on its newly-purchased Georgia home last week: Their new neighbors threatened them with guns, called the police and had them arrested,WSBTV reports. Jean Kalonji says a man and someone who might have been his son pointed a gun at him and his wife. “He say to put the hands up and get out from the house otherwise he would shoot us,” Kalonji said.
The neighbors thought the Kalonjis were breaking into the house, and didn’t believe their protestations to the contrary. When police showed up, the family didn’t have their closing papers with them, so they were arrested and charged with loitering and prowling. Kalonji, who grew up in the Congo, says the experience was all too familiar. “There, they put me down with the gun to my head,” he said. “Here, the same.”
Neighborhood BBQs are going to be awkward.
And who the fuck wields a gun on people who are going into somebody else’s house? Was this dude threatened in any way? No. Do we just not worry about calling 9-1-1 anymore? Stand Your Neighbors’ House’s Ground?
