But they aren’t documented so they wouldn’t be pa…..nvm
This is a huge misconception for regular Americans. When the government uses the phrase “undocumented” they’re using it incorrectly because if they were truly undocumented then they would’ve be in system. However these immigrants are in the system and they pay taxes, file tax returns and get no benefits that citizens and legal residents get. They also get to see ICE showing up at their doors because the government has their addresses. Fun fact. “Undocumented” workers pays $12 billion dollars every year in taxes. https://www.google.com/amp/www.forbes.com/sites/niallmccarthy/2016/10/06/how-much-tax-do-americas-undocumented-immigrants-actually-pay-infographic/amp/
Reblogging for info.
“Undocumented” just means “without papers,” i.e. a social security card, valid visa, etc. They’re still on databases and whatnot, they just don’t have the documentation that allows them to reap the benefits.
so if it didn’t click- the government is aware of their presence and gladly taking their money under the table while simultaneously promoting the idea that undocumented people are a threat and encouraging hatred and distrust of them
it’s super messed up, literally the scheme of an evil villain, and it’s really happening
🗣 undocumented immigrants in Los Angeles contribute more to the GDP than the state of Montana and like 5 other states

Me every night:
4 lialda to keep ulcerative colitis from making me bleed to death
1 multivitamin with iron for my anemia
1 Zyrtec for my allergies
1 antibiotics for my infected gums (temporary)
2 gummy vitamins with biotin for my hair & nails
2 spironolactone to keep the testosterone away
1 progesterone for healthy boobies
+once a week Estrogen injection
Anyone who thinks this behavior is ok is pure evil, there is no defense.
If our government can do this so readily, if there is no safeguard in our system to prevent the abuse of helpless children, then it’s time to BURN THE SYSTEM TO THE GROUND.

1 year before HRT vs. 10 months on HRT
Trying the bright hair again. I love how it came out. Big thanks to my sister for helping me!
There’s an unreasonable demand for queer/trans people to be very open about our traumas. Early in college, when I was still coming to terms with violence that I experienced, I would be disregarded as “privileged” by the campus activists. This was due to the perceptions of my body alongside my unwillingness to speak about violence I faced. At the time, I wasn’t comfortable being open about trauma. If I stayed silent about it, then people assumed I had a completely easy life. If I was open about it, then I would have been forced to deal with violence that I wasn’t ready to. This is the case for so many queer/trans people, activists, and community members.
While we should be acknowledging the power we have (e.g. I am white, have class privilege, etc), it’s not enough to simply make these sorts of assumptions from just the perception of our body or even what we’ve told others so far. Everyone has forms of power and everyone has forms of oppression. Just because we aren’t willing to talk about it openly doesn’t make these experiences any less valid. Forcing queer and trans people to be open about our traumas isn’t just anti-queer but also violence within itself. We should make space for people to speak about these experiences while recognizing others aren’t ready to.
I’ve been going to electrolysis regularly for the last 3 months (1-2x a week) and I still have hairs everywhere and dark hairs on my upper lip. I think it’s gonna be time to call it quits on this pretty soon and just go back to shaving whatever grows back. I don’t exactly have an unlimited supply of money.
💖 Reblog if you think the girl on the left is just as beautiful as the girl on the right 💖 I’ll give you the above statement, but let’s not forget about the most beautiful girls 🦑🦑
Nyle DiMarco & Chella Man Teach Us Queer Sign Language
but then again, its kind like putting a meat suit on and telling a shark not to eat you
We (men) are not fucking sharks!
We are not rabid animals living off of pure instinct
We are capable of rational thinking and understanding.
Just because someone is cooking food doesn’t mean you’re entitled to eat it.
Just because a banker is counting money doesn’t mean you’re being given free money.
Just because a person is naked doesn’t mean you’re entitled to fuck them.
You are not entitled to someone else’s body just because it’s exposed.
What is so fucking difficult about this concept?
How can you not reblog something like this
Unintentional, but the flower in my hair is blending into the flowers in the background 😅
I shouldve slept an hour ago…
Omg you are so freaking adorable I can’t get over it ❤️
Hope you and your cuddly Chikorita are able to get some sleep and have the most pleasant dreams
