i love the Women Against Feminism that are like “I dont need feminism because i can admit i need my husband to open a jar for me and thats ok!” cause listen 1. get a towel 2. get the towel damp 3. put it on the lid and twist. BAM now men are completely useless. you, too, can open a jar. time to get a divorce
Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
If they’ve never had a seizure before (they should be able to respond and tell you so once the seizure has passed,) get them to medical help ASAP, and if they are not recovering afterwards within about 10 minutes of quiet and rest, get medical help ASAP. Everyone is different—some may require only a few minutes before returning to their daily activities, while others may need to get home safely and rest for the remainder of the day.
Also consider the location—try to provide them with some privacy as they are seizing and coming out of the seizure—remove onlookers where possible, or screen off the area. As some seizures can lead to an embarrassing loss of bladder control, you may wish to cover the person with a jacket or similar material.
Some who experience seizures frequently can sense them coming on, and may let you know in advance (sometimes this can be hours before, or only minutes.) You may help them find a safe space prior to the onset of the seizure, if they wish.
white girls who want my culture’s bindis and saris and henna
take my skin colour too
and my dark brown lips
take my self-hatred because i don’t fit into the euro-centric ideals of beauty
take the oppression too
take the history of colonization that has devastated my country
and the drones that currently devastate my country
take all the bad stuff too
not just the pretty, shiny, sparky bits
take the ugly, dehumanizing and shitty parts too
Dumbledore, notorious for giving second chances Dumbledore, let Sirius rot in Azkaban for twelve years.
He must have known Sirius well due to his time in the Order, he must have known what James meant to Sirius. Dumbledore was a member of the freaking Wizengamot yet he didn’t fight the Ministry’s horrifying trial-optional policy.
This is a man who took back Death Eater!Snape at his word, shielded him from prison, and employed him at a school for children.
But he didn’t have a use for Sirius, so he didn’t care about him.
I got 99 problems with Dumbledore and his treatment of Sirius Black accounts for like 64 of them.
To be honest, Albus Dumbledore is one of the most disturbing, terrifying characters I’ve ever found in a book, because he thought he was a good guy and so did everyone else and the books don’t really challenge it either (given that Harry forgives him for everything he did), but when you look between the lines he was profoundly, profoundly immoral and unethical.
A couple of months ago, I was talking about HP characters with a friend, and he said that Dumbledore was one of his least favorite characters of all time.
Naturally, this took me back a bit since he’s one of the heroes of the series, misguided as he was at times. Still, I was curious and asked my friend why he hated him. His answer still strikes a chord with me.
"There is never, ever a reason to leave a child in an abusive home. Never."
What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?
h/t to amomenttothink for retweeting this.
Please spread this around
July the 28th, World War I starts (This newspaper was relesaed on August the 5th).
OTTOMAN EMPIRE ALMOST DECLARES WAR ON ITSELF
i got so confused who hates who and oh my god you cant make this stuff up, this actually happened. history is full of the weirdest shit and biggest coincidences and my history teacher’s favorite line is “you cant make this stuff up” and thats what makes it so.
It’s like his snoring got so bad that his wife left him and now he’s just forever alone with his extra-strength Breathe Right strips
maybe the strips were so effective that he inhaled his wife
periods help you learn how to get blood off of things which is probably why you hear more stories of men caught with murder
This is so true it’s not even funny.
Are you fucking serious?
this is why i am a feminist. this is what rape culture is. this is a useless piece of shit that deserves to rot in hell. i fucking hate people :-)
the society we live in: its totally okay to rape somebody. to target them by “what they wear” because its okay and your government will support it and blame it on the victim. they will protect the person that takes away someone elses livelihood, innoncence and ruins intimacy of any sort for a very long time. we teach that “rape is okay” throughout children. thats the most disgusting thing. but, just listen it is ILLEGAL to smoke a plant, marry someone of the same sex. it is illegal to LOVE. but its totally okay to ruin love. to force someone into something. but its not okay, and your government also puts millions of dollars into stopping growth of marijuana and putting those people involved in prison, but they wont put a dime into stopping rape culture. they actually mock it. so there is your government.
