The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.
This comparison is important. The difference in these two birthdays is important. These photos are taken exactly a year apart: the left is my 18th birthday and the right is my 19th birthday. Here’s how these nights went:
18: I went out to a sushi restaurant with close friends and family. I refused to drink my first legal drink. I was wearing 2 pairs of pants and 3 sweaters. I had one bite of sashimi, ran to the bathroom, locked myself in the stall and purged. I refused to come out and my mom had to get the manager to unlock the door. I cried my eyes out and I had to convince the manager to let me sneak out the back because I was too embarrassed to go back to my own birthday party.
19: I met up with the same (with a few additions) group of friends at a pizza and wine bar. I had half a pizza, 3 glasses of wine and a slice of birthday cake. Scratch that, I had my face pushed into a piece of cake. In this picture I am over 30lbs heavier than one year ago today. I am wearing a thin tank top. I am warm, I am fulfilled and I love myself. (I am also pretty drunk).
I want you to know that recovery is 100% possible. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Some days, it took literally all my strength to push through meals. But I did it, and others can too. Eating disorders are not a “for life” sentence, although they feel like it. With hard work, adventure and patience, you can learn to love yourself again. You can learn to hold yourself together again.
Choosing to let Anorexia consume me would have been one of the last decisions I would have ever made. Choosing recovery was the single greatest decision I’ve ever made.
WOW. JUST WOW.

Hello, this is a friendly psa from an unhappy person.
Not everyone likes to read. Not everyone can read. A lot of people struggle to read. However, just because they don’t or can’t read doesn’t mean they don’t enjoy a good story.
For example, I cannot read Jane Austin’s works. I’ve tried and tried but I can’t. However, the movie and play adaptations of her novels are some of my favorite stories.
I like Marvel movies and anime, but I cannot read manga/comic books/graphic novels. I don’t know why, just that it is difficult for me to do so.
I have dyslexic friends who have to struggle to read a few pages, let alone an entire novel, but they love movie adaptations.
If I were to go into a movie I was looking forward to seeing but never read the book and saw this it would probably ruin my entire day. Depending on my mood, I may even start a fight over it.
I remember accidentally ruining that Dumbledore dies to my brother and it devestated him because he didn’t want to be spoiled and was a slow reader so wasn’t there yet.
Please if anyone thinks this is a funny thing to do, realize that you may ruin someone’s day.
If someone hasn’t/doesn’t want to/can’t read a book, that doesn’t give you the right to be an asshole and ruin the movie for them.
You’re not a special snowflake for having read TFioS and knowing how it ends. You are, however, a massive douche for spoiling it for other people.
Why would you even want to spoil it? Like, what kind of twisted satisfaction does this give you? Do you feel better now that you’ve ruined the experience for others? Do you feel like a good person?
Grow up, for fuck’s sake.
P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”

Not sure if I’ve reblogged this before but it always bears repeating.

This vine got taken down.
I think that’s fucking important to note, that this vine got taken down. I saw it and it languished in my drafts for a while because it fell through the cracks.
Remember this. Remember that they’re taking down protest videos. Remember that they’re trying to control the narrative. Remember, keep posting, keep sharing, keep talking about Ferguson. Don’t let the story die.
bless you if you can admit your favorite character has flaws.
