if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior.  I had a real sword with me, too.  I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion.  Some woman walks by, with her little girl.  The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight.  But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.”  You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?”    And the girl looked around and saw me.  I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood.  So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?”  And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating.  Like she thinks I’m going to say no.  So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her.  And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.”  I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.

If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

One of the more helpful and insightful things I’ve seen about depression/suicide in the last couple of days.

Women’s education in Hogwarts (before the first wizarding war)

thepostmodernpottercompendium:

This is a question that was submitted to me by someone, for the sake of convenience, I’m going to paraphrase their question(s) and assumptions to make them as short as possible:

Question: What are your thoughts on the education of women in the wizarding world?

Authorial assumption: Possibly antiquated, similar in nature to education of non-magical British women in the 1800s or so - most conservative people with the least contact with muggle world did not develop that much when women are concerned - given that the wizarding world separated from the muggle world in 1689-1693.

Assumptions that hold up the questioner’s assumed answer:

1) Law of primogeniture - male inheritance (as shown with the Black family line) indicating a certain amount of backwardness.

2) Ratio of female to male fighters among the Death Eaters versus the Order - pureblood influence versus muggle influence

3) The lower visibility of women from the older pureblood families in places of power - Narcissa Malfoy being seen only at a match, versus Lucius Malfoy being seen swanning around the Ministry.

4) The First Death Eaters being entirely male.

5) The treatment of Merope Gaunt.

I’m going to play the devil’s advocate here and first critically examine the assumptions placed here and then go on to elucidate my own thoughts on the matter. All of this goes under a cut because this is ridiculously long.

This is AWESOME.  I’ve never seen feminist theory used quite like this!

As most of you know, I have been in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend Alex for over a year now. We both believe it is time for me to relocate to Cincinnati where I will get the best care possible both emotionally and physically. In May of 2013 after many years of suffering I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease. After a FNA biopsy it was determined that I must undergo a totally thyroidectomy due to the threat of thyroid cancer. After my thyroidectomy I became even more ill. Since July 2013 I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, endometriosis, HS, and CFS. In Cincinnati I will be able to receive the best care possible and be with the man I love. But I need your help. I have created an Etsy Shop.

The money I make from my hand crafted items as seen above, is going straight to my moving fund. Please think about taking a look. If you don’t see a hat in a color you would like, custom orders can be done with a simple message. If you can’t afford to purchase anything or just don’t feel comfortable with it, please think about reblogging this post so others can potentially help. It would really mean the world to me. I’ve also started a GoFundMe which you can access
here.
Every little bit helps. Even simply reblogging this post. It would mean the world to me to get any help that I can.

I'm posting this to actuallyautistic tag to ask for your help.

Laura Tisoncik was one of the earliest people to form an entirely politicized group of autistic people. By which I mean, not a social group, not a support group, but a group that saw autism (and disability in general) as a political issue. She started autistics.org, the first wholly political…

Reblogging….no one should ever be denied treatment like this.  It’s utter bullshit.

When you cross your legs while in your chair, and people give you the most scandalous looks.

Good grief this this this.  It’s one advantage to using the scooter…no one expects me to be paralyzed…

I can never stop posting this. The narrow minded bible fanatics that just look at one small thing in the bible then feed the world with their hate over it. At the same time they ignore all the other silly laws made by man they claimed were made by god. These gif’s say it all.

REBLOG EVERY TIME
