"people whose identities i constantly deride and insult don’t want to date me!" the greatest oppression known
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.
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.
Today the Department of Unexpected Interspecies Friendship brings us the awesome story of ‘Bubbles’ the 32-year-old African elephant and ‘Bella’ the 3-year-old black Labrador. They’re best friends and they live together at The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species, also known as Myrtle Beach Safari, a wildlife park in South Carolina.
Bubbles was rescued when she was still a baby, orphaned after her parents were killed by poachers for their tusks. She was flown to the US along with a few other elephant orphans where there were facilities ready to care for them.
One of Bella and Bubbles’ favourite games to play is play catch. Bubbles uses her trunk to throw a ball for Bella. When they’re in the water together, Bubbles throws the ball and Bella leaps off her perch atop Bubbles’ head to dive in and retrieve it. Bubbles also likes to play keep-away with the ball and Bella because Bella can only leap about as high as her friend’s knees.
