Mississippi recently passed a law allowing businesses to deny LGBT people on religious grounds, but some business owners aren’t having it. Hundreds of businesses throughout the state are displaying these stickers in their windows to demonstrate their commitment to equality. It’s part of “If You’re Buying, We’re Selling,” a campaign by Equality Mississippi and 30 local businesses to combat harmful effects of the religious freedom bill. Yes, yes, yes. Mississippians, look for this when you shop. (via The Advocate)

If you are 35 or younger - and quite often, older - the advice of the old economy does not apply to you. You live in the post-employment economy, where corporations have decided not to pay people. Profits are still high. The money is still there. But not for you. You will work without a raise, benefits, or job security. Survival is now a laudable aspiration.

Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy

“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.

It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”

Her work is frank, speaking of a reality I hope that will never be mine. At the same time, it gives me a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.

A friend of Groundwood’s has a very special cat in need of a home.
Jason is a sixteen-year-old kitty whose owner recently passed away. In their will, they stipulated that all of Jason’s vet bills would be paid for — so if costly medical care is all that’s keeping you from a sweet older cat, Jason may be the guy for you!

DM me for contact details if you’d like to meet this beautiful fellow.

Toronto area, contact

Toronto babes in need of a lovely new cat, this little man might be the one for you.

Melissa May - “Dear Ursula” (WoWPS 2014)

"You, big lady, were the only Disney character who ever looked like me. And while you may not have had the waist line of a princess, I’ll be goddamned if you didn’t have the swagger of a queen."

Performing during prelims at the 2014 Women of the World Poetry Slam. Melissa placed 7th overall in the tournament.

This is perfect.

On my show ‘Community’, a new script supervisor saw me on set and pulled me aside. With tears in her eyes, she said, “You moved me in ‘The Help’. If I had endured what Minny had, I would have put pooh in that pie, too.” I didn’t have the heart to tell her that she had mistaken me for my buddy Octavia Spencer. So I said, “Thank you so much.” Later I texted Octavia that she was making White women cry on the Paramount lot. We had a good laugh.
