We are not so different.
I love this, we are all just occupying different forms
What really pisses me off is when I see the tumblr population compare employers not hiring people due to piercings/tattoos/unnatural hair color to employers not hiring people due to race/sexuality/gender identity/etc. LET ME EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU: people choose to get tattooed and pierced. People do not choose their background. You cannot compare your supposed “struggles” due to your choice of body modifications to the actual issues people face on things that they can’t (and don’t need to) change.
Please, stop playing victim here. It does suck for some people, but you can cover your tattoos. You can wear piercing retainers. It may suck, but after all, this was your choice. Do not compare yourself to people who struggle to find work because they are trans* or someone who can’t manage to pay their bills because employers in their area are racist.
These are two COMPLETELY different issues that should never be likened, and it sickens me to see it happen.
