the beauty we learn behind this aweful tragedy from the young pure souls
- a boy give his life jacket and give all his life to help his classmate… he die as a hero on his birthday
- a young selfless ship attendant help distribute life jackets to passenger and stay behind until her last breath
- a 6 years old brother who give his life jacket to his 5 years old sister and wispher comfort even his fate is still unknown
- a student who yell for rescuer to take a small child from his arms even the ferry is sinking and he still on it
either u’re gone or safe or still missing my thought and pray goes for you…may your soul rest in peace and hope miracles exist so u can be with your love again and be safe…
everything about this is heartbreaking.
i can understand why it would be annoying for white people to be constantly asking things for whatever reason but whenever i ask something it's because i like to hear your personal opinion on it.
Yeah it’s just when you hear “is kotatsu appropriation?” “are chopsticks appropriation?” “is soysauce appropriation?” “should I stop watching anime?” “can I use a bento box?” “Can I learn Japanese?” over and over and over it’s frustrating because it starts to detract from the overall conversation to talk about things that aren’t of much consequence and can be figured out on their own.
I don’t think people should stop asking these questions because the fact that people are begging to think about these things are important, but it gets really tiring to get asked if eating with chopsticks is cultural appropriation. Also, particularly with something like that it feels like the asker is really missing the point and cannot see the bigger picture of white supremacy and oppression that actually affects us.
if I ever see a girl in public who is clearly going for something really bold with her look (crazy hair, makeup, outfit) and looks like she’s maybe uncomfortable or nervous about rocking it, I make sure to go up to her and tell her she looks fierce. It took a lot of courage to go out like that and somebody ought to notice.
changes lives. be sure to do that at least once a day.
you’re the type of person this world needs
six fanfictions i am currently craving:
- the steve rogers and bucky barnes are really mad about these newfangled bananas show, starring steve rogers and bucky barnes, who are really mad about these newfangled bananas
- this same fic, five more times
#TO EXPLAIN: until the 1950s the bananas that were available in the US were a different type of banana than the kind we eat now #but then those bananas got a wasting banana disease and essentially died out #so now we eat a different variety of banana that was resistant to wasting banana disease #which is by all accounts totally not as good as the old school banana #THE LINK UP THERE IS TO A REALLY INTERESTING NYT ARTICLE ABOUT BANANAS #THAT I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT SINCE I READ IT IN ‘08 OKAY?! #and also i just want to think forever about happy things #like bucky barnes taking a bite of banana and spitting it out and yELLING #while steve rogers sits next to him nodding in angry agreement

Pregnant and recently pregnant women are more likely to be victims of homicide than to die of any other cause, and evidence exists that a significant proportion of all female homicide victims are killed by their intimate partners. Pregnancy can be an especially dangerous time for women in abusive relationships, and abuse can often begin or escalate during the pregnancy. Don't EVER say an abortion is not needed to escape abuse or death because you CLEARLY have no idea what you're talking about.
Well if a woman is in abusive relationship and the guy isn’t much short of having her at gunpoint and threatens her and black mails her into an abortion, or scares her into an abortion, and there’s next to nothing she can do, then he is an evil piece of scum. The abortion is still murder, but I’d say the blood is on his hands, not hers.
Let me be clear though, the abortion is still completely wrong. And an unborn human being is still equally is dead and mutilated. - Gabbie
Have you ever been in an abusive relationship before Gabbie? I’m willing to bet you probably haven’t. Let me explain then.
The abuser WANTS their victim pregnant usually. They WANT a child involved so that the person has no choice but to stay with them under their power, they use that to their advantage and use the child as leverage to prevent their victim from escaping.
THAT is why abuse victims need abortions. We need them because we cannot be trapped with our abusers, because we know it will kill us and because we know what sort of future that child will end up with.
If I had gotten pregnant off my abusive ex I can say with 100% certainty that I would have aborted and would not have regretted it for an instant. Because if I hadn’t and been pregnant? Well for one think I would have taken my own life. (But my life doesn’t matter to you does it?).
For another it would have made me financially dependant on my abuser, because an unemployed, depressed 18 year old with no financial support and no education simply cannot survive as a single parent in my city. And adoption would not have been an option either considering pregnancy cost and maintenance in addition to pregnancy being a potentially massive mental health trauma.
If you have never experienced abuse in a relationship or rape, then do yourself a favour and please, never, ever talk about it because you don’t know shit and you’re ignorance is both appalling and insulting. Especially considering you would be perfectly happy to have trapped me with my abuser and perfectly okay with me killing myself. Just so long as I didn’t have an abortion instead.
When my mom was in her early 20s, she was in a relationship with a somewhat abusive guy and he got her pregnant. Within the first few weeks of them finding out, his abuse escalated to the point that he was physically hurting her and preventing her from seeing her friends or family. He was extremely controlling, manipulative, and paranoid. She knew if she had the child, even if they broke up, she would have obviously been forced to keep that abuser in her life for decades because he would have requested custody and visitation rights. Finally one day, without telling him, she moved out of their shared apartment and got an abortion. Because of the choice she made, I am alive today. I was the wanted child she was able to have because she had access to abortion services as a young woman.
Rob talking about a stalker he had in Spain.

FOR TWO STRAIGHT HOURS.
Bless this man.
the man. the myth. the legend.
bisexual hate is totally 100% rooted in heteronormative and puritanical ideas of sexual morality, so when gay and lesbian monosexuals perpetuate biphobia, they are by extension perpetuating the heteropatriarchy. if you are biphobic, the only people you’re benefiting are straight people. smash the heteropatriarchy—support bisexuals.
Captain America: the Winter Soldier - The Falcon [x]
#SAM WAS SO GREAT LET ME LIST SOME OF THE WAYS #fearlessly chatting with captain america; treating steve like a human being #recognizing something in steve that speaks to having a hard time adjusting to his situation #and bringing it up in a way that doesn’t put steve on the defensive or make it sound like something not perfectly normal #inviting him to a ptsd meeting without making it seem like he thinks steve needs therapy #or that therapy is something to be ashamed about needing #just so casual and so fucking cool #Sam will be your legs before you realize you can’t stand anymore #and he’ll never ever make that about him (via queenklu)
After interviewing for a job with the Academy of Art and finding out at the end of the interview that the pay is $13.50/hr, I wrote a nice thank you note: “Thanks for speaking with me today. After looking over my expenses, $13.50 will not be enough for me to live on. The average rent for a one bedroom in San Francisco is $2,897, and $13.50 an hour would only amount to $2,160 per month. Only if you increase the rate to at least the living wage, or offer housing, this will not work for me.”
Her reply: “At this time, the pay rate for the role is $13.50.”
My reply: “I suggest your institution reconsider its priorities. As one of the largest landowners in SF with a real estate portfolio worth at least $320 million, and annual revenues more than $247 million, you would think you could spare enough to pay full time labor enough to afford to live in one of the Academy’s overly priced buildings. Just sayin.”
Greed on both sides of the equation, the landlords and the employers, makes for a citizenry forced to depend on loans and credit which, surprise, just funnels more money into the pockets of the wealthy.
I wish I knew the context of this scene because all I can think is “This is it. Eyebrow jesus has finally returned.”
