Hari Kondabolu tells a feminist dick joke.

Fuck. Yes.

So I thought I should let everyone know that I’m in love, no big deal.

excuse me but

this man has impaired my judgement

Oooh, new comedian who doesn’t piss me off. Time to track down videos of him.

You are in for a treat, poster above me.

always reblog hari kondabolu

On the album version of this joke that was just released, he also makes reference to the trans community and talks about the gender binary. It is even better.

Hari: For those of you who don’t know, the theme of my set tonight will be colonialism.

Moi, alone, at home, out loud: HAH! I LOVE YOU!

I generally always reblog Hari Kondabolu, but I always ALWAYS reblog the feminist dick joke.

Hari, you are my new best friend.

If you are 35 or younger - and quite often, older - the advice of the old economy does not apply to you. You live in the post-employment economy, where corporations have decided not to pay people. Profits are still high. The money is still there. But not for you. You will work without a raise, benefits, or job security. Survival is now a laudable aspiration.

Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy

“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.

It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”

Her work is frank, speaking of a reality I hope that will never be mine. At the same time, it gives me a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.

I will always reblog this quote.  Hits way too close to home for me.

The most salient part of this, to me, is the underscoring of the fact that there is no “right” college major where you’re guaranteed a job forever. Conservatives love to pretend college graduates working minimum-wage or freelance jobs just didn’t “pick the right major” - those foolish fools studied the arts or literature or something else frivolous, so they deserve crushing debt and no job security! No. There is no magical college major that will let you sidestep the jobless recovery.

John Scalzi gets it.

John Scalzi is my favorite human being

"Nip that crap in the bud, gentleman. You can do it."

i lost a lot of my respect for john scalzi when i had an email exchange with him over his use of the word derp and how it is hurtful to disabled people and he just kind of threw aside my opinions and perspectives as a disabled person because he saw it as just a fun silly word

i even cited other disabled bloggers who had expressed the same idea much more eloquently and the whole thing ended up feeling very disrespectful and condescending

so maybe he should take some of his own advice

i mean, maybe he’s grown? but he’s definitely not grand high king of internet anti-oppression like people think

And it’s only £19,000.
