International Women’s Day
"You can have ambition, But not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man".
This is me. I'm inquisitive and unconventional without trying to be a rebel. Perpetual anger is a bore and I think sarcasm is weak. Here's the best summation of what you'll get here:
We won't always agree. I only require one thing: Be real with yourself for a second.
I don't follow back unless i love the blog
TODAY I AM IN LOVE WITH: ...
it ok to not be ready
Please spread this shit like wildfire. People go on and sit through the whole experience and they’re uncomfortable because they just want to please their partner and they don’t tell them that they want to stop because they are not ready. It’s okay not to be ready.
notice here that consent is revoked without ever saying no and consent goes so far beyond yes/no!!!!!!
People in relationships need to read this, bc people assume that relationship (especially marriage)=consent.
Same for dogs. Stop starving your dogs because you think every animal in the world could be vegan.
These kinds of people make me sick.
its like the just don’t understand…
That’s why y’all’s dogs and cats round here abnormally fat as fuck now because you’re ordering shit from Outback and feeding them the same thing.
What dog or cat you know that NEEDS meat? I’ve had a dog almost all of my life and they didn’t die or get pissed off because we were giving them meat.
Unless the comment was deleted, I don’t see where anyone implied that cats/dogs should be fed junk food or food from Outback.
even dry dog food has meat or animal by products in it…
OH FOR FUCK’S SAKE
THEIR SLOGAN IS “STRONGER THAN GREASE”

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.
You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.
As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”

Let me tell you a story.
Tracy Latimer was 12 when her father killed her in 1993 by trapping her in his pickup and filling it with carbon monoxide. He sat outside the truck and watched her die. This was after he’d considered giving her an overdose of Valium, or just shooting her in the head, putting her down like a cow that couldn’t get up. Tracy’s mother Laura found her body, and her father Robert initially tried to claim Tracy had “died in her sleep” before confessing.
Tracy had cerebral palsy.
Maybe you didn’t like that story. Have another.
Markea Blakely-Berry was born prematurely, and experienced lifelong cognitive disabilities as a result. Her life, however, was short: her mother starved her to death, and she passed away at age 16. She weighed 43 pounds at the time of her death.
Perhaps that story makes you uncomfortable. These might help.
George Hodgkins was murdered last year by his mother, who shot him and then herself in Sunnyvale, California. He was 22, and autistic.
Kyla Puhle, age 27, was starved to death by both her parents, weighing just short of 27 pounds at the time of her death from dehydration and starvation. She had quadriplegia, scoliosis, and cerebral palsy among other medical complications.
Tom Inglis was given a lethal overdose of heroin by his mother. He sustained significant head injuries that caused cognitive impairments at age 21.
4-year-old Daniel Kirby, an autistic child, was drowned in the bathtub by his mother. She drove the body to the local police department and turned herself in.
Karandeep Arora was strangled to death by his parents at age 18. He was blind, with other unspecified impairments. After they finished, his parents killed themselves.
Leosha Barnett, age 18, weighed 80 pounds by the time her mother finished starving her to death. She had epilepsy and other unspecified medical conditions.
Ajit Singh-Mahal’s mother forced him to drink bleach at age 12. After she was sure her autistic son was dead, she called the police to turn herself in.
Rohit Singh was beaten to death by his father for defecating on his bed. He was seven, and had unspecified physical disabilities.
Gerren Isgrigg was abandoned in the woods by his grandmother at age six. He was there for three days before being discovered, at which point he was dead. Gerren had epilepsy and used a feeding tube for nutrition.
Alex Spourdalakalis was 14 when his mother and grandmother drugged him with sleeping pills, stabbed him multiple times after the sleeping pills didn’t kill him, and then slit hit wrists. He was also autistic. [read more]
These are the kinds of stories I read every morning, thanks to the Google Alert I masochistically maintain for stories of disabled people killed by their family members (I have another one for disabled people being murdered in general). Disabled people have enough to fear from society as it is, but it’s chilling to note that one of the biggest potential sources of abuse and violence is family members.
What’s more chilling is that these cases aren’t considered horrific violations of human rights and grounds for serious criminal cases. More often than not, parents get away with their crimes, or receive comparatively light punishments considering the fact that these murders are often premeditated and involve extreme violence.
This article is from last year, but I’m posting it now because today is the 2014 Day of Mourning for disabled people murdered by their parents and caretakers. And [massive trigger warning for violence and abuse] here is the list of the dead.
