It would be really neat if you could help me out by sending donations through paypal. My boyfriend and I are really struggling right now. I don’t have a job right now and Danny works really hard, but he doesn’t get paid enough. We are both autistic and trans, and we have bills to…
I don’t think people realise how hard it is to re-discover the person you were before depression or even try to remember your own personality
Having been diagnosed at 13, I don’t know that I’ve ever known myself outside of clinical depression/anxiety. That’s kind of a sad thought.
In a study of children aged 2-5, parents interrupted their daughters more than their sons, and fathers were more likely to talk simultaneously with their children than mothers were. Jennifer Coates says: “It seems that fathers try to control conversation more than mothers… and both parents try to control conversation more with daughters than with sons. The implicit message to girls is that they are more interruptible and that their right to speak is less than that of boys.”
Girls and boys’ differing understanding of when to talk, when to be quiet, what is polite and so on, has a visible impact on the dynamics of the classroom. Just as men dominate the floor in business meetings, academic conferences and so on, so little boys dominate in the classroom - and little girls let them."
fruitilove said: fuck you with your cruel fashion and get off my dash
We did not get on your dash; you followed us. A simple unfollow would have done, but in the future please keep your imperialist vitriol to yourself. Fur is part of many indigenous people’s clothing out of necessity, and it is not your place to label fur items as cruel just because white settlers lock up and torture their fur animals. There’s a better target for your comments. Thank you.
This also goes for anyone else who subscribes to Western animal rights movements’ ideals and misplaces their anger on indigenous peoples who have no history of systemic animal abuse. It seems like indigenous peoples are easy, soft targets for this particular kind of “activism” and I don’t even have words for how messed up that is when the culture that needs fixing is the Western one.
