So this is a thing that happened…

Christian Day, a pagan writer and store owner, sent me this love letter after outing my account name on Facebook. Like many people who have an alias on facebook, I have a rather good reason for doing so. (I have a Meatspace stalker, who use to mail me bits of dead things, and threaten my children, because he wanted me to bear only HIS children. It was a living nightmare that I lived for over six months.) Alas… I was not very happy with Mr. Day for this, and told him so.

This screenshot shows his response

You are not misreading that. He actually said “…if he rapes you, please call out my name while he does.”

Facebook has been less than helpful during all this… As a matter of fact, they have sided with HIM, yanking my post with this screenshot on it, and putting my account on a 24 hour hold for “Harassment.” of Mr. Day.

I have… No real game plan at this point, other than not allowing this to go unseen by the many Pagans on the web. I have had such an outpouring of support from my friends and the general pagan community on facebook that it honestly made me cry. On another note, I have had to un-relax, knowing my stalker is still out there and can find me now. But, I will not back down. This shit IS NOT OK for our so called “Pagan Leaders” to do.

Rock on my Beauties… Pass this along if you wish, repost it everywhere, and let us not allow this “Man” to have a moment peace until he answers for what he has done. 

Dear followers, please reblog this. I want it to spread like wildfire. This guy is a real “Big Name Pagan” a famous published author, and he spent months bullying, harassing and threatening my godmother and her daughter over facebook. He owns a franchise shop here in New Orleans, and has systematically been trying to sow seeds of distention among local witches and their shops in order to cripple competition. He’s blatantly (racistly) disrespected our local Voodoo community on the radio saying that you shouldn’t have to go to Haiti to get initiated because it’s a “dirty place”. If you see his so-called “apology” don’t buy the hype. He is openly sexist, racist and classicist. This is not the first time he’s done something like this, he is not sorry. He needs to be held responsible for his actions.

We are forced to live in a system that steals from us daily, Kill snitch culture.

Important things to keep in mind!

- never take from ‘mom and pop’ type store. Its likely you’ll actually harm them, whereas taking from a walmart wont effect much.

- never take items that a worker is assigned to monitor (usually super expensive items), theyll be in trouble for it. and its usually a minimum wage worker and usually they lose hours or pay, or they even get fired.

- similar to the above, never take things that are usually locked up for the above reason

- if its a store you know gives their near-expiration products to workers/charity, try to avoid taking the near expiration products.

- if youre taking clothing, avoid leaving hangers. it sounds weird, but itll make it seem like it was more likely an error in the computer than a theft, since the empty hanger sitting there will seem suspicious. 

- also for clothing, try not to take more than one item at once, as it will look suspicious if theres 10 medium shirts missing, and it won’t be written off as just a stocking error. and it will lead to workers being penalized

- basically just always consider ‘will this harm a worker’ and if the answer is yes then dont do it

like i was homeless for a while when i was younger and i tried to follow those guidelines to avoid doing harm to people who were probably not much better off than me while trying to get food for myself.

Holy crap, is there like an unspoken thieves code or something?!

it’s a thing. I won’t even lie. I watched someone slip a nursing exam book in their bag at the store I worked at. She made eye contact with me and the blood drained from her face. I simply gave her a sympathetic nod and walked away.

I live in a small town and I knew she was a waitress at a hotel my sister works at, and people at that hotel don’t tip well during off season. Nursing exam books are 50+ bucks. Being a med student myself, I didn’t even breathe a word, and when inventory came up later and the book was missing, I suggested it was likely a mislabel, and the manager wrote it off.

Sometimes, thievery is a necessity. Don’t send people to jail over petty shit. 

Don’t snitch. That is all.

We been saying snitches get stitches

NO. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

TAKING ANYTHING HARMS THE WORKERS. THEFT DIRECTLY AFFECTS STORE BUDGET, WHICH IN TURN DETERMINES WORK HOURS AVAILABLE. YOU ARE COSTING PEOPLE THEIR FUCKING JOBS BY STEALING.

THE CEOS AT THE TOP ARE NOT AFFECTED BY THIS. THEY DO NOT FUCKING CARE. YOU ARE STEALING FROM THE EMPLOYEES WHO WORK AT THE STORE.

DON’T FUCKING STEAL, YOU SORRY FUCKING SHITS.


YES, EVEN FROM WALMART. BECAUSE CORPORATE DOESN’T FUCKING CARE. YOU ARE NOT STICKING IT TO THE MAN BY SHOPLIFTING. YOU ARE STICKING IT TO YOUR LOCAL STORE, STAFFED BY LOCAL PEOPLE, AND ARE COSTING LOCAL
PEOPLE JOBS.

YOU ARE DIRECTLY MAKING MY FUCKING LIFE HARDER. HOW DO I KNOW? BECAUSE I WORK IN LOSS PREVENTION AND INVENTORY. I SEE FIRST HAND HOW YOU SHITHOLES FUCK UP MY LIFE, AND THE LIVES OF MY COWORKERS.


THERE IS NO CODE OF FUCKING HONOR, BECAUSE THERE IS NO HONOR IN THEFT.

IT IS JUST YOU BEING A FUCKHEAD.

STOP IT.

The amount of pro-shoplifting propaganda on Tumblr never fails to astound me. Do you people have ANY IDEA what you’re doing? Or who you’re hurting? Hint: It’s not the corporate bigwigs. You’re just hurting underpaid and overworked retail employees who are just trying to make ends meet; now they have to deal with getting their wages cut thanks to YOUR stealing.

Don’t fucking steal. Just DON’T. And if you see someone shoplifting, ALERT THE STAFF. Don’t just sit there and do nothing, someone’s job could be at stake. This whole “Don’t be a snitch” mentality NEEDS to stop.

True.
My mother works retail (manager at express) and stores have a minimum amount of profit they have to make EACH DAY and if she doesn’t make her numbers-

1.no bonuses for the employees
2. Normal pay is cut
3. Regular workers are fired for not being able to do their jobs BECAUSE OF YOU
4. Managers (aka my mother) is fired for not being able to handle the situation and keep shoplifting to a minimum

So notice how CEO is missing from my list
Literally fuck shoplifters.

I just saw someone reblog this without the bottom 3 comments, and as someone who works in food service you need to read those.

I’m gonna reblog this again because I’d like to mention that the reason I only get paid minimum wage and why our company can’t and won’t give us raises is because shoplifting prevents us from getting the profits my company needs to actually provide liveable wages for it’s employees :)

I work at Walmart on nights, and we get a lot of walk outs, especially because we don’t have that many people. Last week had a lady trying to steal a whole cart full of stuff with a layer of stuff she bought on top. She went through the self checks, then had to leave suddenly when my CSM went down there. She came back to get the stuff she bought, and in the time she was gone, my CSM went through the cart and pulled out everything she hadn’t purchased. When she tried to get management to come out in the beginning of the incident, they yelled over the walky that they were too busy and not to worry about it. The next night in the meeting we all got reminded (by management) that it is everyone’s job to stop theft. When they take inventory every year, the loss is always high and we all get the “I’m so disappointed in you all, you can do better” talk. Any loss is cut from us hourly workers, and salaried managers don’t give a damn til the district manager throws a fit.

See this picture? This comes from a town in Canada where a 24 pack of water bottles is 104 dollars and formula milk for a baby is priced at 55 dollars a pack. What’s more, a pack of diapers is 95 dollars and one head of lettuce is 26 dollars. Inuit people are starving in a country known for it’s generosity.

If you don’t believe this is true, you can find more images like this here. This is the only grocery store these people have in their small towns, and many people are going hungry & elderly are dying faster.

You’ll send aid to foreign children that are starving, so why won’t you pay a little extra to feed the people in your own country who work hard & still can’t afford the prices for healthy food for their families?

Please have a heart and reblog this photo to raise awareness that even in our own countries people are starving, join the movement and show the government that we won’t sit by and watch people starve. 

If you think this will make your blog ugly you’re wrong. Children in a first world country are getting sick & starving, and nobody is even aware it’s happening. You can let people know by reblogging and showing you care. People I am close to, my friends and future in-laws are going through this. 

Love how little attention this post gets from my beach blog followers.

Ok I didn’t think this could possibly be for real, but I found a news source on the matter. This is insane.

YES, this is real.

the way the Canadian government treats the native people here is actually disgusting. The reserves sometimes have a lower life expectancy and the general living quality of third world countries. This isn’t common knowledge and it needs to be.

Hi, these cats are Buddy and Macy. I know the picture of Buddy isn’t as cute, but trust me, he’s gorgeous, cuddly and adorable in person! A real lover. Macy, too. They are large cats, but declawed, so they can’t be outdoor cats. Half Maine Coon.

These two are brother and sister, ten years old, and if they don’t get homes, separately or together, by April 3, they will be put down by their owners, who are moving away. If you know of anyone in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania who might take one or both of them, let me know. Good, loving homes only! (submitted by geopsych)

Are there any shelters that could take them?
