ladies who should be playing mythical head bitches in charge | CATE BLANCHETT as BOUDICA, the queen of the british iceni tribe who rose in rebellion against the roman forces, who burnt cities to the ground and slaughtered thousands in her wrath, and who finally took her own life rather than be enslaved.
"But now," she said, "it is not as a woman descended from noble ancestry, but as one of the people that I am avenging lost freedom, my scourged body, the outraged chastity of my daughters. Roman lust has gone so far that not our very persons, nor even age or virginity, are left unpolluted. But heaven is on the side of a righteous vengeance; a legion which dared to fight has perished; the rest are hiding themselves in their camp, or are thinking anxiously of flight. They will not sustain even the din and the shout of so many thousands, much less our charge and our blows. If you weigh well the strength of the armies, and the causes of the war, you will see that in this battle you must conquer or die. This is a woman’s resolve; for as men, they may live and be slaves." - lewis j. j., translation from tacitus
You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
I will side-eye anyone who gives someone who has a SNAP/EBT card a hard time. Especially when they have to use SNAP then their debit, cash, credit card, etc to pay for the rest of their groceries because all you can buy is food. But, that’s a little general. People can only buy some food, if it doesn’t come off of my computer automatically, I can’t change it. People should never shame others for depending on SNAP or EBT. Like if you’re that much of a judgemental fucktard, I feel bad for your life.
Just because people are ‘poor’ doesn’t mean they don’t deserve nice things. Like ipods, the occasional cigarette, or taking their fucking kids to Disney land. Because god forbid you give a poor kid hope.
