Justice League #34 Selfie Variant Cover by Dale Eaglesham
I went into a random dream town and this person has a chair, a box of tissues, and a picture of Carlton in their basement.
As an independent young noblewoman, Elise is determined to secure her place in the Templar dynasty amidst the chaos of the French Revolution.
As long as it isn’t a saftey hazard, I don’t see why we can’t have them. And yeah, if the tattoo is inappropriate or if your plugs have something inappropriate on them, then I can see why they would want them covered up it taken out. But if you have blue hair and the store or whatever wont hire you because of that, fuck them. I like your blue hair, I’ll hire you.
One hundred percent support
i cant even tell you how sick to fucking death of this body policing bullshit i am. its 2014, we’ve cloned sheep, get the fuck over it and hire a person with cotton candy pink hair and metal in their face, what the fuck is the problem???
Let me tell you a story, so way back in 2010, I had my first job… I did a placement with them for a retail course, they liked me, they kept me on.
So, I had a handful of blue and blonde streaks put into my hair, only generally visible while I worked as I usually wore my hair in two plaits to keep it out of the way.
The first person to see me? Assistant Manager. She loved it.
The manager was coming in around midday to change over with his wife, (half-days, etc).
So I’m going about my day, doing all my bookstore stuff -receiving, shelving, helping, selling, ordering, checking on orders, everything I usually did…
And all of a sudden, the woman from around the corner of the shopping centre at the jewellers, comes in. She sees me helping a customer, like always, so goes to loudly complain to the Assistant Manager about it.
"Unprofessional", "Disgusting", "If she was one of MY girls I would have fired her for walking in like that!" and on, and on she went being so dramatic.
[It’s literally only vaguely visible, and I wouldn’t work for her anyway, given the pained expressions her sales girls wear from the minute they clocked in until their shifts were over…]
I think the intention was to instill the same emotion in the surrounding crowd of customers I had been serving or trying to assist over this idiot’s shouting… but in reality they were leaning together and muttering about how ridiculous she was.
One little old lady I was wrapping a book for (present for a grandchild she’d needed help with, and I made sure to remind her that if it didn’t suit, or they had it already, we could always exchange it -because it’s what we did back then), she reached over the counter, put her hand on mine and went, “Don’t listen to her, I like your hair… very zippy”
So, the manager arrived in the middle of all this kerfuffle, and went immediately to Lady Shoutington, still going strong about it several long minutes on… and might I point out the Manager was the nicest person in the freaking world, he really was, and his wife was the same…
The woman explained, he came up, circled around me for a moment going, “Something’s… different…”
And then went, “Aha, your hair! I love it!”
And the woman continued to complain, but the assistant manager reiterated that she also liked it, and customers chimed in… and then, in the politest manner I’ve ever seen, they pretty much told her to bugger off…
It wasn’t even her store, she held no power there, but she thought she had a right to tell me, and tell the people I worked with what our standards should be. I did apologise to the manager and assistant manager for not telling them ahead of time, but they waved it off.
They liked it, it wasn’t overly offensive… and when the Big Boss for our region/area came to the store… she said she liked it too.
If the people I worked with and for had no problem with it… why should I care what some random other store-owner thought about the whole thing?
