I don’t want your love unless you know I am repulsive, and love me even as you know it.
This is the minute-long video you should watch today

This is why we can’t have nice things. I mean, really. She’s heading the Fed, not walking the runway.
Besides, hasn’t everyone been saying we need more fiscal conservatism, more penny-pinching, on the part of government employees? Shouldn’t we be taking her conservative, frugal attire as a positive sign? You can’t simultaneously criticize her for not spending more money on her wardrobe AND advocate for frugality in government without sending very mixed messages.
If she was in rags or day-glo orange I could understand the remarks. But she’s wearing a conservative, classic outfit. It’s fine. Move on folks, there’s nothing to see here.
If she were in rags or day-glo orange it STILL would be completely irrelevant to her ability to do the job she was picked for.
It’s the same drivel that’s been aimed at every female in power in this country. No one pays attention to ties or suits of male counterparts. But she is a woman, so naturally, her first duty should be to someone else’s aesthetics, regardless of what her work actually entails. And it goes in both directions. Had she wore couture, she’d be berated for thinking of “trivial shit” and not concentrating enough on her job.
“A biker’s power and intimidating image can even the playing field for a little kid who has been hurt. If the man who hurt this little girl calls or drives by, or even if she is just scared, another nightmare, the bikers will ride over and stand guard all night.
If she is afraid to go to school, they will take her and watch until she’s safely inside.
And if she has to testify against her abuser in court, they will go, too, walking with her to the witness stand and taking over the first row of seats.”
During one such testimony, a little boy sat on the stand, testifying against his abusive father, who sat less than 10 feet away.
“Why didn’t you say anything before now?” Asked the prosecutor.
“I was scared.” The little boy replied, honestly.
“Why aren’t you scared now, what changed?” The prosecutor watched the little boy closely as he pointed to the front row of seats in the court room.
“Because my friends are scarier than he is.”
I know I’ve reblogged this before, but it’s just so beautiful.
