I’m a newbie, and the community is being just so gentle! The dergs I’m given are just the cutest, and I was shocked to know there are newbies who exalt them. Personally I don’t think they are really new to it. I can’t make myself exalt any of my babies, and I’m currently struggling with finances so I can give more lair space to them! I can’t believe someone could be so cruel, really.

But not all newbies are like that, anon. Some of us really love dem dergs.

No- one calls middle-aged dads who are obsessed with football teams crazy when they paint their chests in team colors and stand outside in 40 degree weather for all four quarters at an NFL game and buy jerseys and play fantasy football. They’re just passionate. But when you transpose all those characteristics — passion, merchandise, detail-oriented focus, spending money to see your favorites etc. — onto something that is traditionally for teen girls then all of a sudden it’s embarrassing and pitiable and that chaps my ass something wild.

While the international community drags it’s feet on the Ebola crisis, #Cuba has sent 165 health professionals to Freetown Sierra Leone, the largest medical team of any other nation. 300 more #Cuban doctors and nurses will also go to Liberia and Guinea.

Although Cuba is far from a “wealthy” country, it’s universal health-care system allows them to export heath workers, 50K in 66 countries to be exact. Often responding to foreign health crises (like Katrina) at an extensive rate. #kudos #afrocuban

at school i wrote captain kirk on all of my papers instead of my actual name and eventually all of my teachers started to call me captain kirk and they got confused all the time trying to figure out which name was mine in their grade books because they was looking for kirk

holy shit

Being in love is not enough to make a relationship work or last; it takes more than that. It takes trust and communication and empathy. It takes two people who are willing to give more than they take every day.
