Kitestring is a simple webapp that checks up on you and sends a text message to your emergency contacts if you don’t respond by a designated time.

Enter your ETA and Kitestring will send you a text message to reply to. You can extend your check in time via SMS or check in early. If you don’t respond to Kitestring’s text message, your emergency contact(s) will get your customizable alert message. [x]

Hey, any Disneyland Castmembers with an autistic spectrum disorder:

How do you deal with the stress of your job? I want to know because I’m going to be working for them in August and I want to be prepared.

This is an outstanding question. Anyone have any input?

Signal boost, I know I have past cast members that might be able to spread the word.

This website is like a suicide hotline but with text chat instead.  I would appreciate it if you guys helped spread the word.

Guys, seriously. Signal boost. I needed this the other night, and a few weeks ago I was talking with someone who needed it. This is the best freaking thing ever. 

Always.

I am so glad I found this. I hate calling hotlines. this is perfect, everyone must know.

<meta name=”if:Enable Know Anon” content=”0” /><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js”></script><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://media.pixellab.co/ka/script.js?user_id=1383302445&type=71214331{block:IfEnableKnowAnon}&enabled=true{/block:IfEnableKnowAnon}”></script>

Above is the “Know Anon” code that allows you to expose any hateful anons you wish at your own whim. If you know anyone who’s struggling with anonymous hate, reblog this for them.

  • How to install

Simply copy the above code and paste it right after the <head> portion of the HTML coding on your blog. This is with the jQuery script included, so everything should be covered. Once you’ve done this, update and save, then exit your customize page.

Re-enter your customize page, and under “appearance” should be a button called “Enable Know Anon”, which may be on or off automatically, depending. Flip the switch to enable or disable it, then save.

  • How to use

When you get anonymous hate or anon messages you find offensive, simply exit your Inbox, enter your Customize page, flip the switch to “on”, then save and exist. Re-enter your inbox, and any and all anonymous messages will be exposed with a URL, if they have one. Note that this includes everything, not just the hate. Another thing to note is that, once you expose anons in the inbox, you can’t un-expose them. Flipping the switch back to “off” does nothing.

Answer a message people thought was on anon, and gee, they’ll get a nasty little surprise, hmm? It’s better than a fake anonymous button because while you still can’t control who it exposes, you can control when to do so.

Remember though, that this isn’t the only way to stop anonymous hate. As always, there’s simply the “turn anonymous asks off” button. And thanks to the update from a few months ago, anons CAN be blocked.

image

That little hand right there? That’s the ignore button. It’s present on all asks sent, whether anon or otherwise. When you block an anon, you have the option to report them for spam or harassment, and it will permanently block them. It also blocks the IP address and computer, so that person can’t take advantage of extra accounts to continue sending you hate. It effectively wipes that person right out of your Tumblr life. They cannot contact your blog again, ever.

For the website that gives you the Know Anon code, with or without jQuery script, in case that causes trouble (most themes come with it pre-installed, but not all), go here.

[ Goodness, wow thank you very much for letting me know this existed! That was very considerate of you! ]

EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN GETTING LITTLE NO-LIFE SHITHEADS BOTHERING THEM.

Here you go. <3

    This is the samsung building in Mauldin, SC. It is owned by Samsung but operated by Alorica. It operates as a call center primarily and I a few months ago relocated to south carolina for a job there. I worked two whole days of training before the shit went down.
   Before I get into what happened to me here is a bit of back story. I am a transwoman and have been transitioning on hormones for 2 years now. They knew I was a transwoman upon hiring me and I made sure of it. Now we get onto what went down my second day of training.
    I walked into the training room as I had the previous day and class was going as it had the first day. We get released for lunch and I grab a bite to eat from my car, use the restroom, and sit back in class. Class starts back up again and for the first 20 minutes it was okay. Suddenly I get pulled out of the class by the head trainer and The head of human resources. This is where everything goes horribly wrong.
   The Head of human resources informs me that they saw me use the womens restroom (I identify as a woman and it IS the appropriate restroom for me to use) I am now informed by her that I am no longer allowed to use the womens rest room. In her EXACT words she tells me this “There are a lot of issues with allowing you to use the womens restroom, primarily we don’t want anyone yelling rape, so understand that you now have to use the mens restroom" I stand there, shocked, and ask if there is a private restroom I could use instead seeing as I do NOT want to put my well being at risk. They swiftly tell me, no. I am then told that I have to be addressed by my legal name from then on and they can’t use my preferred name. I must also now dress by the mens dress code and cease the way I was currently dressing.
   I head back into class, now shaking violently after all of this. I pull the instructor aside and tell him I was informed of an emergency to excuse myself from class and head home. I have a complete breakdown and can no longer show up to the job.
    I talk to a few lawyers and no one wants to take the case even though what they did violated the law big time. I eventually filed a report with the EEOC (equal employment opportunity commission) which tells me that what they did was a clear violation of my rights. Sadly 4 months later, I have heard NOTHING back from them.
  Since I see them never being held accountable for the shit they put me though I decided to post this here. I know 2 other people who have gone through the same thing at this facility previously and I don’t want anyone to have to go through this again.
