Why is the blame for romanticizing mental illness lodged at teenage girls documenting/trying to cope with their struggles with mental illness and not grown men who make movies about how medication is evil and schizophrenia is magic powers.
I’m just gonna reblog this every time I see it.
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.
"But Guys, Dragons!"
Driven by the head-canon of an Asexual (and possibly also Aromantic) Charlie Weasley, explaining to his snog-obsessed friends “But Guys, Dragons!” we have decided to merge representation and fandom into a new pendant.
A big thank you to Rin Venieris for doing the artwork on this new piece.
Asexual dragon fandom for the morning crowd.
Along with a bump for the evening crowd -
PLEASE share this. We hear so much that the Ace/Aro community is ignored or erased. By sharing this you are letting your friends and followers know that both you and we are making an effort to include them, not to ignore them, and not to co-opt the A for anyone else. Representation matters, and it can be fun. Because, dragons.
May you have enough money to pay your bills this month with a little extra left over for a bit of fun.
This is one of the nicest things to wish for someone
May you endure with comfort
we are four queer and trans kids living in a punk house called the void that’s on the brink of facing possible eviction. multiple forces have combined (people being forced out by the landlady because of a pet, others moving out, others just not having the funds they expected) that leaves us about $1,000 short on rent for october. all of us are calling in our favors, but even with that we still may come up short. finding new housemates is not an option as we are all trying to move out in november.
we all have mental illnesses, some severe enough that prevent us from working, and others have been looking for jobs despite this but with no luck. being unhoused would put severely aggravate our already unstable mental health situations for all of us. i don’t think any of us imaged we’d ever be asking tumblr for money, but our housing instability has been pushed to the point where we don’t know what else to do.
after looking into tenants rights and eviction laws in maryland, it seems that if we don’t pay rent in full on time we could be forcibly removed in a matter of weeks, which would leave most, if not all of us without a place to go.
so that’s where we’re at, seriously any amount, no matter how small would be so greatly appreciated. please send donations to raven’s paypal at email@example.com
please stop pretending that the rise of neo-nazi parties in europe is tied to anything other than antisemitism
like believe it or not??? the success of neo-nazi parties in europe is not bc they’ve somehow duped the whole world into forgetting they’re literal fucking neo nazis. it’s not coincidental that there’s an uptick in anti-semitism every time there’s an economic crash, and neo-nazi parties are milking that for all they can.
