"Here is how the internship scam works. It’s not about a “skills” gap. It’s about a morality gap.

1) Make higher education worthless by redefining “skill” as a specific corporate contribution. Tell young people they have no skills.

2) With “skill” irrelevant, require experience. Make internship sole path to experience. Make internships unpaid, locking out all but rich.

3) End on the job training for entry level jobs. Educated told skills are irrelevant. Uneducated told they have no way to obtain skills.

4) As wealthy progress on professional career path, middle and lower class youth take service jobs to pay off massive educational debt.

5) Make these part-time jobs not “count” on resume. Hire on prestige, not skill or education. Punish those who need to work to survive.

6) Punish young people who never found any kind of work the hardest. Make them untouchables — unhireable.

7) Tell wealthy people they are “privileged” to be working 40 hrs/week for free. Don’t tell them what kind of “privileged” it is.

8) Make status quo commentary written by unpaid interns or people hiring unpaid interns. They will tell you it’s your fault.

9) Young people, it is not your fault. Speak out. Fight back. Bankrupt the prestige economy."

Hey, here’s an idea, OP, go fucking adopt a special needs child instead of crying about a FETUS that someone aborted. There are millions of children without homes. If you would really give ~everything~ to adopt a baby with Down’s (or a baby in general), fucking do it. Don’t cry on fucking post secret that women aren’t incubating fresh babies for you to adopt.
Because we all know that that’s what this a really about.

So my German boyfriend cheated on me 3 days after I bought non-refundable tickets to see him in Berlin. Anyone want tickets from London to Berlin?

Update: My German friends are being actual first-class babes and offering to meet me in Berlin/let me stay with them instead so I don’t waste my tickets. Getting all bleary-eyed and soppy.
