I see your point, however, we do get toilet paper soap, paper towels etc, which are also bathroom items but are always provided in any office restroom. So I understand that maybe the money meant for office supplies shouldn't be used to buy tampons, but if someone decides to buy them anyway, should he really have to pay it back?
It's true that she's an A-list actress and the movie will definitely get more attention with her in it. However, I think the whole point from the transcommunity is that there are plenty of trans actresses that would love to fulfil that role and if your movie needs a famous actress to make it interesting, maybe it's not that great of a movie to begin with. We don't have men play women or women play men, why should it be any different for transmen and women?
I understand your point that there's no pleasing everyone. In this conflict, that is definitely the reality. However, this particular conflict hasn't been going on for thousands of years, though it has been going on for a long time and a lot has happened. Minor occurrences such as the embassy move can be the drop in the bucket and cause another wave of protests and violence. But in this case, we were already in the middle of a wave of protests. While Ivanka opened embassy, Gazans were protesting and being shot. The combination of the two caused more outrage, so it makes me wonder if this political move was worth it. The consulate in Tel Aviv continues carry out all tasks it did as an embassy, and before the move there was already an consulate located in Jerusalem, so no one in Jerusalem needed to travel to Tel Aviv for any sort of embassy related business.
Aside from breathing exercises and meditation, I found that keeping a journal really helps. There are many different ways to keep a journal and you just have to find the way that fits you best. I read a lot about bullet journals to fight anxiety. Bullet points with everything you're grateful for that day. I tried this for a while and if you keep doing it on a daily basis, you'll start to notice there's a lot of (little) things that don't cause anxiety, fear or lead to panic and focusing and actively noticing those things can be really nice and help stay calm. What works best for me though, is just writing random thoughts or even making little creative schedules. Nothing is going make the panic attacks go away in a day, but all little things combined (breathing exercises, meditation, no coffee, no alcohol, journal etc) can definitely keep them away for longer periods at a time. Good luck!
Thanks for sharing, I like the video, but I also don't want to use this one example to say 'see, race isn't an issue anymore.' I think it's obvious that race is still an issue in the US, which also doesn't mean it's impossible to be black and successful. My issue in this debate is particularly with reverse racism and not necessarily the question if racism is being used as an excuse.
It's not that most Americans live in poverty their entire life, but they will experience poverty at some point in their lives. The US does not have a generous safety net, it has the weakest safety net of Western countries and study has proved that child poverty cost the state $1.03 trillion in 2015. So not only would a better safety net make sense from a social perspective, it would also be beneficial costwise. https://academic.oup.com/swr/advance-article/doi/10.1093/swr/svy007/4956930 http://inequality.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/Pathways-SOTU-2016-Safety-Net-2.pdf
Interesting.. I think it's generally a good idea but I also believe it's important to give people jobs fitting their skills and tasks that can help them prepare for their return into society. The biggest reason to be opposed this kind of labor seems to be that it's on the verge of enslavement, because of poor wages, the lack of benefits and no option to refuse. I read this (kind of old) article: https://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2015/dec/09/prison-work-program-ohsa-whole-foods-inmate-labor-incarceration
It's not a little bit of work, it's inhumane imprisonment imposed based on someone's place of birth.
Exactly. Decades of history have proven that the death penalty does not keep murderers from committing their awful crimes.
Trial costs and the costs of incarceration are higher due to the need of more attorneys, investigtors and experts. Further, the jury selection process takes longer as well as the penalty phase.
