I'm David. This is where I post various things and it's cool if you like some or all of them. I finally got around to not having the default layout. I guess I get around to things eventually.

Quote reblogged from AZspot with 40 notes

It’s pretty amazing. A small kindness that’s no big deal when you do it for someone you know is an incredibly powerful act when done for a stranger. It’s also likely to have cascading societal returns. Research by psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky found that recipients of kind acts were almost three times more likely to do kind acts for others. So simply by regularly reaching out to our co-humans, we can transform our society, little by little, from a vast strangeropolis to a really, really big neighborhood. The way I see it, a minimum of one kind act a day should be our self-imposed cover charge for living in this world. We get the society we create — or the society we let happen to us.

You can fight City Hall (but if you take them to court, they get lawyers, too) →

Well, here’s what happened. The city council passed a law protecting minorities from getting fired just for being minorities. Specifically, the city’s new law protects LGBT people from employment discrimination.

The CEO doesn’t like this law. What’s more, he thinks most people in the city don’t like it either. It’s quite possible he’s right about that. After all, laws protecting minorities from being treated unfairly wouldn’t ever come up in the first place unless it weren’t the case that a big chunk of the majority population was inclined to treat them unfairly. It’s often the case that a majority of the majority doesn’t like it when the law keeps them from taking advantage of a small minority.

But the CEO was so sure that a majority of the people of the city saw things his way that he launched a petition drive to force a ballot initiative that would allow the people of the city, by direct vote, to overrule their elected council and repeal the anti-discrimination law.

I will now pause to allow you to decide for yourself whether or not this CEO is the Good Guy in this story.

Lamented another 8chan user, with no apparent irony: “Unfortunately even misinformed people can put out their opinion on whatever they want, and they’ve got a large platform to do it with via the internet.”

you know what upsets me
bunnies have tons of sex
like supposedly always humping right
but does that affect how we look at bunnies?
no
do we still think bunnies are cute af?
yes
do we want bunnies any less because of their sex habits?no
treat people like bunnies ok
this has been a psa

I like the central message behind this but if I were to treat people like I treat bunnies then I’d ignore them because they’re dull as hell and I’d be happy to eat them in stews and pies.

Admittedly there are plenty of people who already fall in to the first part of that but I think that I’ll avoid going all “Hannibal” on humans for the moment.
