I have waited tables. I’ve worked in bars. You know who tips well? The working poor, the lower middle class, and people who work or have worked in service industries. You know who tips shitty or not at all? Rich people, upper middle class people, and privileged fuckers who use their “moral opposition” to tipping to be cheap assholes.
“The Angry Black Woman is a racist trope used to deny black women their humanity. Black women aren’t allowed to be complicated — they’re just angry. Black women aren’t allowed to be upset or vulnerable — they’re just angry. Black women are not allowed justifiable reactions to the myriad of bullshit — racist, sexist and otherwise — that they face.

do you know if the paulas choice/beautypedia reviews (and by extension, their products) are trustworthy? i was so relieved when i first came across the site, thinking someone was finally going to straight-talk to me about harmful formulations and decode all the disorienting mixed messages, but i have doubts now and i noticed they rated literally all your faves as 'poor' formulations so i was wondering how you felt, i guess. not that im assuming you are infallible, but.
Not all my faves, they don’t have any reviews on my cleanser up. And I agree with their ratings on exfoliants. All my faves? Not really. i like their reviews! and i listen to them a lot. but that doesn’t mean the products i use haven’t given me good results. they could tell me that my skincare routine fucking sucks and break it down all they want but it doesn’t actually change the fact my skin is better than it’s ever been post-puberty. You also have to remember that site is run by a beauty brand that is also invested in making sure their products come off as the best in the business. That doesn’t mean they would be — for you.
Halloween store are popping up, which means that no matter how offensive you find the costumes, DO NOT harass the employees or make their lives miserable by defacing merchandise. They are seasonal, minimum wage workers and attacking them gets you nowhere.
