I hate how if an allistic person is upset, it’s a totally valid display of emotions 

but if I’m upset, even about the exact same thing, I’m ‘causing drama’ and ‘behaving irrationally’.

Your emotions are important and they are valid. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

sincerely, a person who has been on prozac for 9 years

this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow

Prozac has literally stopped me killing myself. I would be dead if it weren’t for antidepressants. If you spread misinformation I’ll come to your house and smack u into orbit.

I’ll join you and steamroll people

As someone who takes the highest dosage of zoloft (setraline) possible for my body in order to function as a “normal” human being, allow me to assure you that if I ever hear you talking shit about needing to take meds, I will pull your head out of your arse and smack it into the nearest wall.

This is good, the one thing I’ll point out is that sometimes antidepressants will make you numb- it’s happened to me and my sister- but that’s a sign you’re on the wrong one. So if it happens, go back to your doctor and say you want to try a new one.

Despite public outcry, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said Wednesday he will move forward with the felony child abuse prosecution of Shanesha Taylor, the jobless mom whose Scottsdale arrest has drawn national attention and prompted calls for Taylor to receive assistance rather than punishment. 

Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office received a petition on Tuesday with 12,000 signatures asking for Shanesha’s charges to be dropped. "First, they weren’t signatures; they were just a list of names," Montgomery said, referring to a printout from the website. "So I don’t know whether any of the individuals in their pajamas who logged on to the site and put their name on there really had a clue of all the circumstances involved in this particular case.

Apparently signatures aren’t good enough, let’s call County Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office & tell him to drop the charges against Shanesha Taylor —-> (602) 506-3411

apparently one gay superhero couple is way too much for straight people to handle

MARVEL SUPERHEROES WHO ARE LGBTQ 
Anole (Victor Borowski) —gay man 
Bling! (Roxanne “Roxy” Washington)—bisexual female
Ultimate Colossus—gay man
Karolina Dean—lesbian female in a relationship with Xavin, a genderfluid, non-binary person currently presenting as female
Flatman—questioning male, then gay male
Graymalkin—gay male
Hector (Pantheon)—gay male
Hercules (X-Treme X-Men)—gay male
Hulkling (Teddy Altman)—gay male in a relationship with Wiccan
Inertia (Supreme Power)—lesbian female
Jackpot (Alana Jobson version)—lesbian female
Jennifer Kale—bisexual female
Karma--lesbian female
Living Lightning (Miguel Santos)—gay male
Miss America (America Chavez)—lesbian female
Moondragon—openly bisexual female
Northstar (Jean-Paul Beaubler)—openly gay male (one of the most “out” of superheroes)
Obsidan (Todd Rice)—gay male
Olympian (Achilles Warkiller)—gay male
Phyla-Vell—suggested to be lesbian
Piper (Hartley Rathaway)—gay male
Julie Power—bisexual female
Rictor (Julio Esteban “Ric” Richter—bisexual male; at one time in a homosexual relationship with Shatterstar
Shatterstar—asexual male; at one time in a homosexual relationship with Rictor
Stacy X—bisexual female
Wiccan (Billy Kaplan)—gay male in a relationship with Hulkling
Xavin—genderfluid, non-binary person currently presenting as female; in a relationship with Karolina Dean
The sad thing is that so many of these are alternate versions of themselves—and that none of them are A-list heroes. But they do exist, and I think that’s wonderful.
(I omitted some from Wikipedia’s category of LGBTQ superheroes that seemed problematic, whose sexuality seemed unsupported by text or meta-text, or who seemed potentially offensive. That said, I’m sure I left some Marvel heroes I didn’t know about off of this list. So feel free to add them.
P.S. Yes, I know that DC and indie comics—not to mention Western animation, anime, and manga—feature a lot of LGBTQ characters. But the original comment was just about Marvel, so that’s what I focused on.)

"Is it political if I tell you that if we burn coal, you’re going to warm the atmosphere? Or is that a statement of fact that you’ve made political? It’s a scientific statement. The fact that there are elements of society that have made it political, that’s a whole other thing."

this retailer sells a halal nail polish. this allows for oxygen and water to go through the nail, which makes it acceptable to wear during prayer. spread the word. 

“Being a relatively modern creation, nail polish remains obviously unaddressed by early Islamic sources. But the general consensus in the Islamic community is that praying with nail polish is impermissible because of the waterproof barrier it creates on nails, which prevents the wudu ritual from being completed five times a day.” (source)

For any Muslim followers.

^^^^^^^

HEY

NO

DON’T ACTUALLY USE THIS FOR THE SAKE OF WATER PERMEABILITY. IT’S NOT VERY EFFECTIVE.

It’s only water vapor permeable, and it’s not at all water permeable when you apply multiple coats, a top coat, or a base coat.

You should use the Tuesday In Love water-permeable brands instead! They’re completely water permeable and come in a whole ton of colors!

Here’s a test that a sister did comparing the Inglot brand and the Tuesday In Love brand on a paper towel so you can see for yourself.

please please please spread this around, I would hate for a lot of sisters to have their prayers invalidated because of something like this.

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.

I am not here to tell you it’s going to be okay because you already
know that. Anyone can tell you that. I am not here to stitch up your

wounds. I am not a nurse or a doctor. I don’t know how to fix you
and I wouldn’t want to try. I am here to tell you that it’s time to heal.

It’s time to let go of the years you’ve lost to your misery. The years
you’ve spent falling in love with your sadness and the way

your bones look when there’s nothing but skin over them. Stop
planning out your funeral and stop writing your suicide note.

Save your energy for the love letters you will have to write one day.
Save your good stationary. Stop staring at your veins like they

will bleed answers. Some days, you will still feel the hollow sort of
heaviness like your bones are made of iron pipes.

All you need to hear is that it is okay to be sad for no reason, a
billion reasons, or for one small reason. Some days your lungs

will bleed and the fresh air is made of salt. Some days your skin will
be a wound and the world is nothing but acid. On these days,

you need to know that it is okay to cry. Some days you will feel
naked and vulnerable like when sadness left, he took your whole

closet with him. I am writing this because none of us can be saved.
None of us can be fixed, because there’s nothing that needs fixing.

You are you. Do not listen to the boy who tells you that you are
broken because he hasn’t bothered looking in a mirror.

Some days, loud noises will still feel like needles on your skin.
People will raise their voices and they will ask why you are scared

of them. Some days you will still cringe when men touch you.
There will be days when you will go the beach wishing

the sea were made of alcohol so that you can stop dreaming in
black and white. You will wonder why they’ve put you on so many

drugs and you will ask yourself why you can’t function on any less.
On days like this, there are only a couple things you must remember:

you’ve been through worse before. You are limitless. The
things you are capable of are infinite. There is someone waiting

to tell you how proud they are of you for making it this far.
I am writing this to tell you that it’s time to let go of your walls,

your ceiling, your floor and grab onto the sky.

Hats off to both. I look forward to seeing what happens

And watch how the media won’t give them any praise whatsoever despite them trying to create jobs for people

part of the problem is they are only helping black kids, and people only get attention for helping black kids if they are white.

who gives a fuck tho? Black people need to stop looking for validation from the white supremacist media and live our lives. 

im not saying they need to be validated. the act in and of itself is great, but when the media only focuses on kanyes tantrums, and ignore when he does good things, it reinforces negative stereotypes which negatively affects all black people.

this is true. as evidenced by the ignoramus i just had to bite my tongue to refrain from replying to. fuck this world.

This is about the burden of disabilities, mental illnesses, and chronic illnesses in academia but I’m guessing it applies to pretty much any setting where one can request services for disabilities.  Or just life in general.

The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.

Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)

It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.

I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit. 

Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.

Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.

"After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)

Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them

I think it’s worth linking again to the donation page. 100% of your donation goes towards processing rape kits and prosecuting the cases they turn up. This shit takes money, and we know how hard it is to get money for stuff like this.
