i had an interview this morning for a science technician role and when i turned up it turned out the role was actually for a science and dt technician

i have never done dt in my life. before today i had never even stepped into a dt workshop. needless to say i don’t think i’ll be getting the role (but tbh i didn’t think i was going to get it anyway; my background is physics and i haven’t done chem or bio since gcse, and even then we didn’t really do practicals because my school was cheap as fuck.)

anyway i just spoke to the person who recruited me and she asked me how it went.

me: uh ok i just felt really underqualified. when i turned up i found out they wanted a science and dt technician, not just science.
her: oh, what did you think it was for?
me: um… just science.
her: but that’s what it was. it was a science technician role.
me: no it wasn’t.

recruiters are useless.

on the plus side the head of science was a dan stevens clone and there’s nothing i like better than dan stevens and science.

When there is “calm” in Palestine, fisherman are shot at, children are run over, land is stolen & homes are bulldozed. The media say nothing, because “calm” for Israelis is all that matters.

"Ellen Reads Her Chinese Viewers’ Names"

aka

Ellen mispronounces Chinese people’s names and she and her audience laugh at them cuz it’s racistly funny apparently

image

image

Ellen uses “American” interchangeably with “English”, as in, the language.

At 2:30: "This one, they didn’t even try to do American, this is just Chinese."

The comments are turned off on this video, but how was this even cleared to be aired?? Fuck you Ellen. This isn’t the first time you’ve been racist on your show.

This is why you weaboos/koreaboos/white ppl CANNOT give yourself a “japanese” or "korean" or "chinese" name for yourself (or any name from a language and culture that’s not your own). Whites take our names as jokes and we’re mocked for it in real life and in the media. 

image

We’re constantly othered, demeaned, and fetishized. Trash like you butcher our names and turn them into racist caricatures.

Our names are precious and beautiful and meaningful in ways you can’t begin to understand. Our names are carefully crafted together by our parents/family.

You trash don’t deserve to utter our names. Fuck you.
