Retrograde Waters

Hello. I'm Rose, 20-something Nebraskan. If you want to know more feel free to ask, I'm not going to waste space here.
This is a personal blog that serves as a miscellaneous collection of things I find cute, cool, interesting, and enraging.
I know that all people are equal and deserve the same rights and respect, and I welcome everyone of all and any race, religion, nationality, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, romantic orientation, age, ability, anything else I may have forgotten (let me know!) and any combination or absence thereof. I do NOT welcome discrimination and bigotry. If *I* say or do anything that is offensive or insensitive, please tell me! I try to consider everyone/different perspectives and experiences when speaking, but I could always make a mistake, and educating myself is a constant process: I will be grateful rather than offended to have small-mindedness on my part pointed out. It's the only way I'll know to correct it.
Thank you and have a nice day!
(Blog NSFW: strong language, various topics of discussion, and occasional images of anatomy and/or nudity.)

I am a fan of this

Worth remembering every single time you make a purchase.

I say this all the time. Every time you buy something, you are saying “I support this product and the companies who made and distributed it.”

(bold mine)
Unless you are poor, in which case you are saying, “This is all I can afford.”
PLEASE DO NOT FORGET THIS. THIS QUOTE APPLIES ONLY TO THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD TO ‘VOTE’ THAT WAY.
When I couldn’t afford jack shit, I got real tired real fast of hearing about how I should only be spending responsibly on ethical products. FUCK YOU. When you’re poor, you buy what you can with what little you have. When you’re poor, being responsible is doing what you can to stay alive. You think I wanted to buy fucking big brands, processed crap, mass produced shit? NO, but it’s all I could afford if I wanted to survive.
It’s bad enough having to balance everything you spend, down to the last fucking penny, because even a couple bucks can mean the difference between eating and starving, or getting to work on the bus vs walking for an hour and a half. Having guilt about the decisions you make to survive is just too fucking much on top of that.

Thank you. I was thinking the same thing when I saw this, but I couldn’t figure out how to put it into words. (Without ranting for a page and a half.)
