you’ve all been given a specific role and code name.

↳Watch out for Mr. Gibbins and Miss Castillo here.
- One in three women report being a victim of domestic violence (30%).
- One in five women report being a victim of sexual assault (20%).
- 60% of Americans, 15 years or older, know a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault.
- Among the 70% of women who have experienced domestic violence and told somebody about it, more than half (58%) said that nobody helped them.
No more bystanding. No more ignorance. No more excuses.
This is a PSA for those who have never heard of this beautiful show. This show is called Red Band Society and it’s about a bunch of dying kids yay fun times right?! Basically you’ve got your cancer patients, your anorexic, your girl with a failing heart, your boy with failing lungs, and the whole wonderful thing is narrated by a twelve year old in a coma.
This show delves into many different kinds of relationships between not only the children, but their doctors as well. Parental, platonic, romantic, you’ve got it all and they’re all beautiful.
Unfortunately this wonderful show is not getting notice and it is very possible that it will be cancelled. So if you haven’t seen it, maybe try it out? I thought it would be alright, but I was bored and slightly interested so I checked it out and I’m so glad I did because it’s my new favourite show! I really think it’s something almost anyone will love, and it’s so unique.
I’m such a great person I’ll even help you get started:
- you can watch the ENTIRE THING here
- S01E01 - Pilot
- S01E02 - Sole Searching
- S01E03 - Liar, Liar Pants on Fire
- S01E04 - There’s No Place Like Homecoming
- S01E05 - So Tell Me What You Want What You Really Really Want
I’m just kind of begging you guys to give this show a chance because I don’t think it deserves to be cancelled and I think y’all will love it <3
the LGBTQA resource center made a lil typo, i fixed it

And DONT erase ally either!
no just erase the ally
erase all the ally
being an ally is not a sexual orientation or a way of life that is discriminated against
so just erase the ally
Being an ally is like being a parent at a sporting event. Like yes great, you know those people on the field and you care about them but you are not playing the game you are not the one who is going to get hurt you have no stakes you personally do not ‘win’ anything so changing the A to ally is like a parent running out onto a field after a big game, ripping the trophy away from the child and being like:
LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! I WON! I WON THE GAME! ME IT WAS ALL ME YOU GUYS COULDN’T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT ME!!!!!!
and that is just plain silly.
Don’t forget allies but don’t include them in the acronym

Nicki Minaj is also a real person who makes real decisions for herself and made a video and song that celebrated her own body and her own sexuality while outright critiquing the Male Gaze through visual metaphor
Jessica Drew is not a real person and was drawn by a man in a submissive position who visually objectifies her (spandex doesn’t work on asses like that come on) and every female superhero he’s drawn. And he can’t even draw a background right.
repeat it with me now everybody: made up women drawn for gross men to jerk off to are NOT equivalent to real life women expressing their sexuality for their own benefit
How do all these people still believe that fictional female characters have agency and can “do what they want.” They don’t do anything or want anything. They are not real
Men: YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN!
Mid-century Feminists: Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd like the option to do that as well.
Men: YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT!
Late 20th century Feminists: Hey we would like to make our own choices about our reproductive health, just like you've always had.
Men: YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY!
Modern-day feminists: Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and them blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great.
Men: THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR!
Men: THE END OF MEN IS NIGH! MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US!
When you’re in the position I’m in, you have two options: you can either shut yourself off from everybody, from the world, and not live a full life. Or you welcome everybody into your life and occasionally somebody will try to take advantage. And I’d much rather be that person who lets people in.
