HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

Holy schnikes.

Now add Black to it, 

And think about how white people are the ones in the hiring positions, 

And white people never look at us or interact with us for longer than they absolutely HAVE to, 

So most of us are automatically marked ‘unattractive’ simply because we’re Black, 

Aaaaaand you end up with a Black unemployment rate that’s over DOUBLE that of the rest of the country, 

EVEN DURING TIMES OF ECONOMIC PROSPERITY.

I was immediately thinking about how this impacts Black and Native (and Mexican, as well) people as I was going down through this and then I get through it and BAM, Tashabilities gets it in there.

But the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work.

We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.

Honest question: Why hasn’t the Our Father been updated with current translations within the context of the Mass yet? If you know or could point me to documents that’d be super cool.

Fifty Shades of Y’all Need Jesus

The real spirit of Pentecost is inclusion. It is solidarity. It is ecumenism. It is reaching out beyond our own limits and biases to speak in a language that all can understand. The more rules and boundaries we place between ourselves and others, the more we negate the true message and purpose of Christ’s Spirit bestowed upon us.

Lay Pastors and Associate Pastors

So I just found out there’s a woman parish life director* in my diocese and this makes me so happy. A neighboring parish also has a woman pastoral associate** and it gives me hope.

*Parish Life Director: a lay person appointed by the bishop who acts as the pastor. The priests assigned to the parish are under the direction and management of the PLD, and all duties typically given to the priest-pastor are given to the PLD (except administering sacraments).

**Pastoral Associate: a lay person acting as associate pastor (parochial vicar) with all the duties typically assigned to the priest-associate pastor (except administering sacraments).

My diocese has a long history of appointing lay leaders and I’m proud of it. I wish more dioceses follow.

(Note: both PLD’s and PA’s are generally appointed for life terms as usual priest appointments are.)

some days i feel evil and fantasize about firing so many people in this office starting with the secretary

Just trained an altar server born in 2005. I have never felt so old…
