The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family. That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.
The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.
This is one of my favourite parts of PGSM. It shows everything that I love about Usagi and Mamoru’s relationship so wonderfully.
Think about the amount of trust and faith in the other required on both of their parts. Usagi has no way of knowing for sure that Mamoru has broken free of Mio’s spell, and even if she knew that, she can’t know for certain that Mamoru’s aim might be a little bit off. Mamoru has to trust that Usagi believes in him and understands what he is doing.
They do all of that without communicating to each other at all. They look each other in the eye for about one second before this all goes down and that’s it.
And then when it’s over, they both have a sense of humour about it. Mamoru criticizes Usagi (in his trademark light teasing fashion) for not dodging it at all, and Usagi just laughs a little and tells him she knows him well enough to recognize that he was serious.
Neither of them flinched. And even though they had a little fight just beforehand, they still trust in each other completely and go back to each other after this as if they weren’t ever in any danger.
kinda fucked up how society teaches that “it’s not fair” is a whiny and childish emotional response to have. what a good way to gloss over the fact that things need to change until they are fair & that distress is a valid emotional response to injustice
Lucky to have people who listed down options for me and helped me understand more.
Those who just saw my post and just criticized and offered no help or insight maybe should reevaluate the roles they are playing? I know what you think about animals in a tin can, four slabs of walls and what not. The point of my post is to find out what are the other options available before everyone goes all gung ho releasing the animals back to their natural habitats.
Yes true we have no rights to see an animal up close behind a glass wall. You see, to me, not being able to see one in real life, is like never seeing a real chicken before and the only exposure you have was the dead chicken in the market. lol.
Anyway I would suggest to those who are fighting for animal rights to work with educators (early childhood etc) about taking kids to see animals in their natural habitats like one example given which was whale watching (which I have no idea how it works) instead of taking kids on field trips to Seaworld or zoos (because they are in cages etc not natural habitat etc)
Yeah gotta work with many different people. XD
