do u ever put on a shirt and look in the mirror and go
"no. this does not represent the full potential of my boobs"
"MY BOOBS CAN LOOK MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN THIS"
Thank you, John Oliver, for taking down the “she’s someone’s daughter/sister/mother” thing at the root. I get the intention behind it is not bad, but seriously-my value as a human should not be defined by how my being hurt would affect my father, brother, or male partner. It should be defined by how it would affect ME. I am someone with worth and value independent of the men in my life, as are all women. We are not tangential sub-people who only exist as we are related to me, we are people. Full stop.
This just made my life. No joke. It’s a non-profit organization that “recycles” binders and supplies them to trans/agender/nonbinary youth that either financially can’t afford a proper binder or due to circumstances such as unsupportive parents cant obtain one,for free. I just have to wait until the first week of Sept. to apply for one (they use applications to ween out the people who use them for cosplay and such that way the people who really need them get them) due to a supply shortage. But the first week of Sept is in like a day. And I’m gonna get a proper binder that fits and is safe. And I’m literally in tears right now because I’m so excited! 😂😂😂

Comment if you want the website! I need to share this with the world!
Hi, can you send the link to this blog? Or you can reblog it here, and I’ll reblog it
Everyone please reblog this. I want all of tumblr to see this.
PLEASE PLEASE READ AND REBLOG PLEASE
On July 17th 2014 my father in law, who is a part time trucker, was in northern Ohio getting ready to sleep in the bed in the cab of his truck. After laying down in bed he heard some shaking noises in the trailer of his truck. He proceeded to call 911 to alert them and then heard someone jiggling the handle to the cab. Suddenly, a bullet shot through the drivers side window. (We later found out that there was metal in his eyebrow from said bullet.) He jumped out of the passenger door only to be met by 2 other men armed with knives. All together there were four men who proceeded to assault and maim my Father in Law. His injuries included a large gash to the stomach that required glue and 28 stitches, a stab wound to his arm that required 10 stitches, PTSD, and most recently seizures.
They haven’t found the four men who did it and from the forum Topix.com it seems like many recent crimes around there have gone unsolved.
Pretty shitty right?
Well guess what? That’s not even the worst of it.
Sunday, August 14th, 2014, was FIL and MIL anniversary and the day my fiance had to go back to work until at least Thanksgiving. That morning we were all woken up to pounding on the door and my 16 year old sister in law answered to police claiming they had a warrant for my father in laws arrest. We were, and still are, in shock.
The police are claiming that he faked his entire assault including stabbing himself multiple times. We think it’s because he brought up the fact that no recent crimes had been solved in the town. As a result of my FIL being in jail we are lacking funds. He had been out of work because of his injuries and seizures and my MIL has POTS which makes it extremely difficult to carry on with every day tasks and nearly impossible to hold a job because there is such little understanding. Our land owner who were basically renting to own from is threatening us to kick us out.
I AM NOT ASKING FOR FREE MONEY.
I will make you anything you desire for a donation.
My beanies are $7 or 3 for $20
My pot holders are 2 for 10
Skirts are $12 for infants and $20 for adults
Aprons start at $50 and I’m trying to figure out how to make infant dresses.
Shipping is generally $5.
ANY donations are so appreciated.
We all have clothes and food etc and if I get hate whatever I don’t care I just need help so bad. We don’t have cable and have the cheapest internet. We’ve sold cars and guns and have a truck that we cant fix yet. We’re just trying to keep a roof over our head so we don’t have to move. Were supposed to be getting a settlement but that could take up to a year for any money to come in from it.
I am literally begging for help. Even if you can’t at least do me the favor of reblogging.
Also if you know me on FB don’t post this. It cannot be there yet because of our land lord.
i’m going to buy some stuff as soon as i can okay. i hope things get better for you guys thats terrible :(
Thank you so much seriously even just a reblog is the greatest gift
"Please stop selling shirts carelessly" wtf are they supposed to interview the people buying them like what does this dude want
you KNOW if he saw a dude wearing it he would not have said anything, he’d assume the guy knew the music, because this is not about music snobbery it’s about men thinking women are fucking idiots, and behaviour like this REINFORCES that belief because this guy will harass and belittle women, finding them to be “wrong” but he will leave men alone ASSUMING that they are “right” thereby providing himself with skewed inaccurate evidence to prove that women are idiots, completing the vicious cycle of misogyny that so many men perpetuate daily but are COMPLETELY FUCKING BLIND TO
Science Penguin [x]
i enjoy that every single human’s reaction to penguin is unrestrained delight
And penguins lack large terrestrial predators, so their reaction to humans tends to be, “HELLO STRANGE GIANT PENGUINS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? DO YOU HAVE ANY FISH?”
this was a childrens show
actually this show talked about sex and periods and making out and all that stuff frequently and to this day its like the only accurate portrayal of teenagers ive seen in media so yea
go watch it on netflix
all boobs are good boobs
all stomachs are good stomachs
all thighs are good thighs
all bodies are good bodies
yes yours, too, and don’t you forget it
US Constitution, First Amendment: The right to assemble, to have free speech, to have freedom of the press.
Ferguson Police: Kicks out media and limits protestors to a “First Amendment Area”
funny, i thought the WHOLE COUNTRY was a first amendment area. silly me.
Funny that when they do this I only hear about it on tumblr, but when they try to limit guns and the second amendment it literally becomes a congressional uproar.
please unmute this vine, I swear
"I think the act of carrying something that is normally found in our bedroom out into the light is supposed to mirror the way I’ve talked to the media and talked to different news channels, etc," Emma continues in the full video which you can watch here.
So, I just want to go into HOW MUCH Columbia and the NYPD has failed, and revictimized, Emma Sulkowitz.
In her school hearing, Sulkowitz ” had to explain to the three administrators on the panel how anal rape worked. She told them she had been hit across the face, choked and pinned down, but, she said, one still seemed confused about how it was possible for someone to penetrate her there without lubricant. Sulkowicz said she had to draw them a diagram.”
"Her best friend was meant to be at the hearing; Sulkowicz had chosen her as her one “supporter.” But her friend was kicked out of that role for talking about the case, according to Sulkowicz, in violation of the university’s confidentiality policy. As punishment, her friend was also put on probation and made to write two reflection papers: one from the perspective of Sulkowicz and another from the accused."
FROM THE PERSPECTIVE
OF HER FRIEND’S RAPIST
- Two other women at Columbia have accused this guy of sexual assault/rape. But he’s been found not responsible in all instances, and is still on campus
- When she went to the police, one officer said: “”You invited him into your room. That’s not the legal definition of rape.”
- Another officer told her friends, who came with her: ““For every single rape I’ve had, I’ve had 20 that are total bull——,” he added. “It’s also my type of job to get to the truth. If that means being harsh about it, that’s what I do.”
I want to set literally everything on fire.
This school and the officials have completely missed the fact that someone was attacked and that the person who attacked them has not been held responsible. It’s bullshit that cops think it’s okay to tell people “no you weren’t attacked” without actually getting the truth. It’s bullshit that school administrations continue to downplay the atrocity of sexual assault. This guy needs to be punished and penalized for his actions. No one should be attacked like this and no one should be punished for speaking out against an aggressor like this.
