Anonymous asked: Isn't it a little weird that a one-on-one marriage is taken as a default, privileged state? I mean, a lot of these "polyamorous" people are being assholes because it's clear from the asks that this is making at least one of the people involved in the relationship uncomfortable. But are we discounting "non-traditional marriages" or relationships as having value here?

yoshouldidumpthisahole:

We are not discounting non-traditional relationships. If you have an agreement with your partner that allows for polyamorous or other non-traditional relations, that is chill. What is not chill is when two people enter what is believed to be a monogamous relationship, and one of them goes off and hooks up with someone else. That is a very unchill super asshole move that is a betrayal of trust in the relationship.

I agree with this except, sometimes people assume they’re relationship is monogamous, even after only a few dates. that’s a different situation I guess, but it is considered a default by lots of people.

Today in history: March 25, 1911 - The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. 
A fire in lower Manhattan kills 146 women workers, mostly immigrants, at the Triangle Shirtwaist factory. The tragedy highlights the criminally dangerous conditions under which the they were forced to work. The fire became a rallying cry for unions and caused an outpouring of support for the workers and for improving working conditions.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Maybe he’s trying to get a few laughs, but there have been several reports of a mysterious clown wandering the borough, and he seems to be spooking Staten Islanders on social media. 

While it’s uncertain who the person is, folks have photographed the face-painted individual wearing a yellow clown suit, white puffy collar, and trademark red nose.

This clown is also bald and was spotted holding green and yellow balloons. Sightings have been reported by the Grasmere and Richmond Valley train stations. Two photos of the oddball have appeared on Instagram, with one showing the clown standing in front of a detour sign. Another image shows him lurking behind a tree.

this is really unnerving.

You can go ahead and call it slavery. That’s still legal, you know.

Reminder that 95% of the people imprisoned are there on plea-bargain: they never received a trial, and the only record of anything in those cases is usually a police report.

"Once he got hit with that violation, somehow one of the supporting beams underneath my bathroom floor was removed," Hidalgo explained. The DOB issued a partial vacate order on her bathroom, meaning Hidalgo’s entire household—which consists of two 18-month-old twins, her partner and two dogs—would be forced to survive without the use of what is arguably an apartment’s most important room. What did they use instead? "Buckets," Hidalgo said. "I would have to bathe my kids in the sink. It was a very tough time for me, because this was a time when I’m trying to potty train my kids and I couldn’t."
