The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family. That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.
The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.
American Dream and Spider-Girl hoodies, found at Party City
They’re…not…sexy???? WE CAN HAVE NICE THINGS??? AND THEY ARE HOODIES SO THEY ARE PROBABLY COMFORTABLE WTF?
That’s what I love so much about so many of the things for women that I’m seeing this Halloween season- they’re not selling “sexy” Spider-Woman costumes or “sassy” American Dream costumes. It looks like they’re taking women who like superheroes more seriously.
I have a great need for the American Dream one. Immediately. Or ten minutes ago.
Raleigh Becket, the most manly of men, an absolute wall of muscle was just brought to his knees by a woman half his size. Dude bros take note, because instead of being mad or even thinking it was funny, which would have undermined him taking her seriously, he’s impressed. He’s beyond impressed. He doesn’t even scramble back up after she steps back. He stays on his knees. She won the point and he’s in no hurry to try to reassert himself. His grip even tightens on the staff because there are some serious emotions going on here with him. The wandering knight just found his warrior queen and he’s trying to figure out how to process that information. He’s found the piece he’s been missing for so long and there’s a little of that last expression that looks like he wants nothing more than to throw his arms around he waist and be “thank GOD you found me because I’ve been alone so long”.
