Fat Pride Protester "climbing the barricades"

21 examples of Thin Privilege that are actually bullshit (and one that isn’t)

Some things are genuinely stupid, and one of them is fat people copying the call for social justice that historically mistreated minorities are making.

The hero grammar needs is Bristol’s Grammar Vigilante

He works under cover of darkness to correct grammar mistakes on shop signs, anonymously fighting grammar crime in the British city of Bristol.

Armed with special tools that only a Grammar Vigilante would need or invent, he uses the night to fight misuse of apostrophes and place them where they were mistakingly left out. According to him, it’s not vandalism. It’s not a crime, it’s a service. One that the people need, but not necessarily want. We might even suggest that this Grammar Vigilante is like the Batman of grammar. Just.. less violent.
