holy shit there is a name for it
Well damn. Explains a lot.
Suddenly I understand some of my fan base a LOT better. That is Awesome.
"holy shit there is a name for it" was my reaction before I even scrolled down to the comments.
I just need to keep reblogging this because I cannot even begin to tell you how profound a feeling of YES and THIS and THERE IS A WORD FOR ME OMG I get every time I see this, and I hope it helps others too.
seriously, anytime you see a post with a comment saying “theres a name for it?!” reblog that post because even if it doesnt apply to you any of your followers could be waiting for that revelation.
i need ferguson to go down in history books. i need school children in the year 2074 to learn about michael brown being shot on august 9th, 2014 by officer darren wilson. i need this to spark a movement. this can not lose the focus of society a mere month after it happened.
Daniele Watts, an African-American actress who has starred in Hollywood films such as Django Unchained, was “handcuffed and detained” by Los Angeles police officers after being mistaken for a prostitute for kissing her white husband in public.

"She said when she reminded the officer of his oath to "protect and serve," he replied, 'My job's not to serve people like you.' ”
Hey there! Let me just start off saying that you are a wonderful human being – as someone who isn't out as bi and who just saw the message you reblogged about bi-ratios, I took a breath of fresh air because I am still struggling with my sexuality. Some days I wonder if I'm like, gay OR straight because my preference vacillates and I always wondered if I was able to label myself as bisexual. So, thank you so much for that vote of confidence. I'm near tears because this means so much to me. <3
Anon, I just want to wrap you up in a big blanket and say validating things to you because I so totally understand what you’re going through. The issue of bi-ratios is something I’ve never really discussed properly with people who aren’t also bisexual, because most people don’t seem to… get it? But like. The crippling self-doubt that exists in the head of a young bi person is just outrageous. Some days you happen to check out girls and end up staring up at your bedroom ceiling at night thinking “wait, am I a lesbian??” Other times you only only find men attractive for a few days and you end up doubting yourself all over again.
It’s a constant source of guilt and shame and confusion. Am I bi enough to really be bi? If I have crushes on three dudes for every one girl, does that count? Am I just making all this up? (And boy howdy, nothing fucks you up like that last one.)
It’s something that we don’t talk about enough in the bisexual community, especially since it’s something that literally every bi person I know has experienced. All of us are so conditioned to defend how bi we are that no one wants to talk about the doubt and confusion and second-guessing that we do experience. We live in a society that tells us that our sexuality doesn’t exist; that we must be ‘faking it for attention’ or ‘confused’ or that we’ll ‘grow out of that one day’. It’s an attitude that I’ve internalized so thoroughly that sometimes I still wake up thinking “wait, have I been straight all along??” before realizing that no, hold up, you were totally in love with a girl for four years.
I spent a decade of my life defending my bisexuality inside my own head. I’m done with that now — and it breaks my heart to know that there are so many young people out there still stuck in that harmful cesspool of confusion and doubt. It doesn’t matter if you like one gender 95% of the time and another gender 5% of the time. You and your identity are valid.
If you identify as bi, congratulations! You’re bi. We’re a group of people who have a long history of being excluded from different orientation groups because we don’t fit a certain mould; we do not need to pull that shit on each other.
Congrats on your first day!
Thanks so much, baby doll! <3
I’m so happy I got through today. Hopefully it means I can get through every other day too.
And become the world’s best substitute teacher!
And even though today didn’t go 100% well….
i love seeing girls close ranks when their fella is cheating, instead of defending him and attacking the other girls. like seriously. it warms my cold, cold heart so much.
i need the rest of this story, where did you put the body
LET ME POINT OUT OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SCENE:
Here, Captain America - a hero in this film - is standing still while three other kinds of heroes, rush around to do thier job. (this is in no way bashing Cap, he is simply standing still at this moment, most likely in shock/fatigue). A soldier, a BLACK COP and two firemen. While American’s super soldier is immobilized, our every day heroes are still fighting to ensure safety and peace. The fact that Marvel created this moment in thier film, a film focused on the heroes, speaks yet again to thier message that you don’t have to be a super, to be super.
Some pictures from the rally today at Columbia. So much wonderful support for my sister and I! Emma and I are truly grateful to everyone who came, and everyone who was there in spirit.
This honestly makes me so emotional.
"It was horrible. It was absolutely horrid. I don’t wanna think about it, it’s the worst, you know cause ‘your body doesn’t know it’s not real’ you know the idea of….(silence)… I thought it was happening. It was one of the worst feelings I’ve ever had to muster."

WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE???
Today in Solidarity: Family of Mike Brown join protesters outside of STL Courthouse, demanding the immediate arrest of their son’s killer, Officer Darren Wilson.
The grand jury has yet to charge Darren Wilson with anything. Mike Brown’s killer is still a free man, being paid by the taxpayers of the very community he’s terrorized. #staywoke #farfromover
comic book death vs. movie death
i’ve been waiting my whole life for this
Back from my first day as substitute teacher! Taught science at middle school. I wasn’t able to keep everyone quiet and in their seats…. But I did ok! I was able to answer everyone’s questions , and the students seemed to like me. So hurrah for my new job that will actually count towards furthering my career while making me some essential money.
going to do my first day of substitute teaching. i am so nervous. i hope i will enjoy it. i hope nothing goes wrong. i hope i don’t make an idiot of myself.
