sometimes you have to be really.. resourceful…

anne, i’m just reliving the time we lived together xD

omg haha this is 1000% accurate :D

You can’t spend the rest of your life being afraid of people rejecting you, and you have to start by not rejecting yourself, you don’t deserve it. From now on, people can either accept you for who you are or they can fuck off.

Now that I have a vegan best friend, met an awesome all vegan family at my piano teachers, and also having met a super cool guy at school whos wearing “vegan warrior” t-shirts, leaning towards a vegan diet gets easier and easier.

some people, like I, don’t have good intrinsic motivation.

Another proof, that representation matters!

Here is a little animatic/storyboard video I made on a Frozen cut off song, « Life’s Too Short ».
I hope you’ll enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed doing it.
Feel free to comment, I’d love to have some feedbacks !

This is amazing!

So a boyband walked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage and everyone thought they were going to sing One Direction or something typical…and then they sung Stars from Les Miserables.

This is the best thing ever. Just listen to those harmonies.

Chimamamda Ngozi Adiche, We Should All Be Feminists

gingerbatching:

Asexual erasure is being told you’re just not ready yet, or being asked, “Who molested you?”

Asexual erasure is people getting annoyed when you’re uncomfortable talking about sex.

Asexual erasure is people not knowing that the A in LGBTQIA+ is for asexual instead of ally.

Asexual erasure is not even knowing, as an asexual, that there’s an Asexual Awareness Week because people reclaim it as “Ally Week.”

Asexual erasure is being closeted not because you keep your orientation a secret, but because people don’t believe it exists.

Asexual erasure is real, and denying it or telling an asexual they’re being oversensitive hurts, not helps, the cause of equality. Would you treat a gay person this way?

Tumblr prides itself on being a loving, accepting community; it’s time to prove it. Instead of joking about my sexual orientation (or lack thereof), educate yourself and please stop asking me if I reproduce like a sponge, for God’s sake.

It took until 1973 to get homosexuality declassified as a mental disorder in the DSM, and look how far we’ve come. Please stop treating asexuality as a side effect of sexual assault or improper treatment as a child. This isn’t post-traumatic stress, it’s my life.

I’m not scared of sex, I’m uninterested. Those are two very different emotions. So, before you tell me that you’re “okay with” my orientation even though you “don’t get it,” please realize that’s acephobic (imagine someone saying that to a gay person for perspective).

Thank you.

Young women are having difficulty accessing tubal ligation, despite it being a relatively safe (death rate is 1-2 per 100,000) and elective surgery.

There is a waiting period of 30 days for women seeking tubal ligation, yet no waiting period for men seeking vasectomies.

Young women are often discriminated against when seeking sterilization. Many doctors ask offensive questions (“What if you met a billionaire who wanted to have kids with you?”), state categorically that their patients are too young to consider the surgery, and generally act as though, as one woman who tried unsuccessfully to be sterilized at the age of 21 in the U.K. put it, ”just because I was a woman, I’d reach a point where an urge to breed would overcome all rational thought.” (Perhaps unsurprisingly, that woman’s 25-year-old husband faced no such presumptions when he asked his doctor for a vasectomy. The procedure was quickly approved.)
(Source)


Say that at 18 I slap down enough money so I could have my whole body covered head-to-toe in tattoos, piercings all over myself, a mountain of cigarettes, plastic surgery, and plan to have like 20 babies… but if I try at all to safely make it impossible for me to breed for the sake of my health suddenly its like WOAH THERE SLOW DOWN MISSY YOU’RE NOT READY FOR THIS KIND OF COMMITMENT YET

I have stage III Endometriosis, which means I have to get my uterus removed because I literally have terrible cramps ALL THE TIME and not just when I’m on my period. Now, I’ve always said I don’t want any children for personal reasons and I don’t need my uterus, really. I am not worried about that surgery and I don’t feel any kind of nostalgia over an organ I won’t ever use. 
The thing is, my doctor is a ‘man’. This ‘man’ told me I had to get pregnant right now before it’s too late. I told him I didn’t want to get pregnant and explained the multiple reasons but what, do you ask, did my doctor have to say about this? 'Well, better have a kid now because just imagine how depressing it must be being a thirty-something woman without children and a husband?'
I was diagnosed a year ago. I should have gone through surgery six months ago and I still can’t find a doctor that will perform the surgery without trying to force me to have children first. Basically, if you’re a woman you don’t have a say in what can and cannot be done to your body without a shitload of people getting in the way AND I’M FUCKING SICK OF IT.

Women are getting non-consensually sterilized in prison but no doctors in my area while tie my tubes at 24 because I might regret it? Fuck you, doctors. I have more purpose in life than dropping babies. Some of those women in prison are probably great moms and I have no interest in parenting. Let us have a say!

A dear friend of mine wanted to have her tubes tied.  She was about to give birth to twins and the doctors wouldn’t consent because she wasn’t 21 yet.  She had already had children and they still refused to let her have the procedure.

My friend got a vasectomy a week after asking his doctor for one, no problem. He was 25.
Me? I’ve asked 4 different doctors for some kind of permanent sterilisation—tubal ligation or Essure or whatever—and I get a pat on the head and a “You’d regret it if you did.”
Oh, DIDN’T REALIZE YOU HAD A DIRECT LINE TO MY BRAIN.

i’m a trans guy. i also have bad endometriosis that makes periods even more horrible (on top of the terrible dysphoria i have when i’m on one).
my family, for the longest time (i’ve been saying i don’t want kids from the time i was about 6 or 7), told me to just suck it up and get used to having periods and not think about sterilization because “you might change your mind some day”. fuck that noise, i want these organs out of me ASAP.

This is horrifying.

please stop taking food that homeless people survive on

boinamedsue:

I think you are misinformed about food waste and poverty if you think that I’m taking from homeless people. So much of the food that is wasted is stuff that requires cold storage and food prep (meaning the use of kitchen, stoves, utensils, fridge etc). If you are houseless, these are items that you can’t take with you. Most common food items we find in the dumpster are: meat, cheese, yogurt, eggs, heat sensitive veggies (like lettuce) milk etc. Homeless people are not the only folks who need food, either. There are many working-poor people whose resources get depleted early in the month and rely on well-stocked food banks to make it through. Most WIC and food stamps programs are not enough to sustain a person’s nutritional needs for the whole month. Most working poor folks are women with children, elderly individuals, veterans, and people with disabilities. Most of these populations do not have the time or physical ability to dumpster dive.
Thus, the food we collect would be rotting in the dumpster anyway contributing to the landfills and producing methane (which heats up our planet).

You are making huge assumption about the sort of activism I engage in. My partner and I dive for food not only for ourselves, but food banks, too. We donate over 50 pounds of food a week—usually from one night of diving in just a couple of dumpsters. (Honestly, we could be doing much more!) Moreover, my partner and I, along with community member volunteers, prepare hot meals and distribute them directly to those who can’t store their food. We use our time and privilege to help others while also living a sustainable lifestyle. We sincerely believe that food is a human right and we work hard to help bridge people’s nutritional needs.
