Photograph of Fire Fighters at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, 03/25/1911

One of the deadliest industrial disasters in United States history, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City left 146 workers dead in 18 minutes on March 25, 1911.  
Locked doors kept the workers from escaping; there was not enough water to put out the flames, and firemen’s ladders were too short to reach the upper stories. Many of the young women and men working there leapt out the windows and fell to their deaths onto the sidewalk outside. Others were crushed in the elevator shaft or when the fire escape collapsed.
The fire led to sweeping reforms in labor laws and safety standards, providing a boost to labor unions, and was a pivotal event in the career of future labor secretary Frances Perkins.

Our post from 2012 has additional photos of the fire and the victims, a few may be considered graphic.

BITCH I WILL FUCKING CUT YOU



YOU’VE ANGERED THE WRONG FANDOM



You’re going down punk, just you FUCKNG WAIT!! You will learn that this fandom is far worse than you will ever want to know. We may seem soft and shy, but we’re just being NICE! We can be cold, cruel, mean, and make you suffer and wish you had never said what you said. We can send you into the farthest most empty reaches of the galaxy, summon demons to our disposal to make you suffer, and make you feel the feelings that we experience, and don’t fucking think for a single goddamn second that’s easy! The amount of emotions that would boil inside of you would literally kill you. So keep your motherfucking distance and we won’t hurt you, so stay the hell back, asshole. If you so much as insult us one more time, we will bring firey hell upon you and bitch slap you into oblivion. Your move, dildo.



We know how to kill a human and hide the evidence. Your body will never be found, and that is a promise.



You do realize a majority of the fandom are 20 somethings right? or at least in college. We can find you, kill you, and make it look like you killed yourself. Don’t try us :)



Shut up.We can exorcise a demon from you faster than Dean and Sam, believe me you need it.We can toss you into a supernova, never to be seen again, or banish you to the end of the universe where you would explode to create a new one.We can murder you and destroy all evidence of you ever existing.Basically- D-O-N-T-C-R-O-S-S-U-S




This is terrifying

How rape trials should go?

Lawyer: Did he rape her?

Witness: Yes, but she was drunk and passed out.

Lawyer: That's not what I asked. Did he rape her?

Witness: Yes, but she was wearin-

Lawyer: I didn't ask what she was wearing. Did he rape her?

Witness: Yes, but-

Lawyer: I didn't ask anything else. It's just a simple yes or no answer. Did he rape her?

Witness: Yes.

Laywer: Yes, he raped her.

Rape is rape is rape, no matter the context.

When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
  • Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
  • Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.

Intersectionality matters.

I will keep reblogging this to point out that disabled people, including men, make 22 cents on the dollar. Mostly because it is legal to pay us below minimum wage, but whatevs.
