What about all those LGBTQ people who think immigration does not have anything to do with them? Here is why it does. The immigration debate gets to the heart of a conversation about who is a "real" citizen, who is part of our communities, and who can be allowed to stay and live here, and who has to do so through a shadow existence, with no basic rights. Sound familiar? It should. It is a historic dialogue that has talked around and through communities of LGBTQ people, people of color, poor people, people with disabilities, and many others. — SONG Co-Director Caitlin Breedlove (via moyazb)

Canada’s rainbow money
Fun fact for Americans: our money is technically made of plastic and they won’t get wet/gross when you accidentally wash them, and you also can’t rip any bills.
Also you can make rainbows with them
Come on, America, get with the times
ajaya-eve-eden-evening asked: Why shouldn't a woman be asked to smile? This is a very real question. Does it come off as diminutive? Granted I'd rather make a woman genuinely smile, as opposed to asking for something free. However, I still wonder what this movement is about? "Stop telling women to smile," "I'm no wifey." It's feeling like a serious disconnect between women & men. I think that is the end of the world...women and men stop interacting all together.
Seriously tho. Why *should* she be asked to smile?
Asking a woman to smile is to make her more approachable. It’s to make you feel more comfortable - not her. I, personally, have zero fucks to give about being approachable to strange men on the street.
Women are not here to entertain and please random folks. Asking me to smile is akin to asking me to jump. Um. For what?
There’s this weird responsibility placed on women to be happy and lady-like and pleasant all of the time. It rids us of being able to express our own range of human emotions.
No one is asking for men and women to not interact with each other. That’s silly. This project is asking for women to be interacted with as if they have agency over their own bodies.
did you know how hilarious the patch notes to the sims are -
- A faint line is no longer visible on the heads of babies.
- Fish are no longer duplicated in the fridge when moving homes.
- Sims can no longer “Try for Baby” with the Grim Reaper.
- Sims who are on fire will no longer be forced to attend graduation before they can put themselves…

Anxiety is wanting to ask your partner a million questions as to why they’re with you, why they say they care about you, and so on.
Depression is not thinking you’re worth enough to even ask those questions, let alone be with them.
and having both of them is the definition of hell

Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won’t have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren’t even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they’re doing it. —

In other words, the U.S. Congress could disarm the patrols needed to keep slaves in line, eliminating slavery with one bold and quick move overnight. The 2nd Amendment itself was purposefully designed to empower the states to manage and handle their slave patrols, their militias. — Founding Fathers’ Words Reveal 2nd Amendment Was… To Preserve Slavery?
Miranda told police she connected with LaFerrara through Craigslist, which she used to meet other men who would pay her for escort-style “companionship,” he said —

Ugh. This is fucked. Not only did they kill someone for kicks but she apparently posed as a sex worker to do so. Because of course guys who patronize escorts deserve to be killed.
An Incomplete List of Noteable People I've Delivered Pizzas To -
It’s coming up on a year now since I got my current job as a pizza delivery girl, and I thought this would be a good time to delve into the little ever-expanding “WTFPIZZA” note I keep on my cell that helps me remember some of my more, uh - interesting deliveries.
So without further ado and in no…
The one with the group of middle aged ladies all dressed as McGonagall, though… I’da stayed.
