‪#‎BelieveSurvivors‬ ‪#‎BillCosby‬ ‪#‎RapeAllegations‬
What Michael Simmons asks, ” the amazing fact to me is that when TEN women accused Bill Cosby of rape over ten years ago—each describing a similar pattern of assault—the media virtually ignored their accusations. it took a relative obscure—at least to me—male comedian to bring the issue to the attention of the public. my question is, why did it require a man to validate this abuse?
—  International Human Rights Activist/Organizer Michael Simmons is the co-founder, with Linda Carranza, of Raday Salon in Budapest, Hungary

The alt brigade expanded today. Top to bottom:

-Sekhe, Jedi Consular/Sage

-Telar’ada’inrokini, Bounty Hunter/Mercenary

-Ysande Ulgo, Jedi Knight/Sentinel

-Yza-lir, Smuggler/Gunslinger

All but Sekhe are on Ebon Hawk; she’s on Begeren Colony.

ya dün akşam otobüse binicem sıradayım arkamdaki çocuk bana 

sende mi her akşam böyle

dedi kalakaldım sonra çocuğun eline baktım global kitapları var ama benim elimde kitap filan yok evet diyip gülümsermiş gibi yapıp geçtim 

ama o nasıl bi soru ya neye uğradığımı şaşırdım 

Guess who downloaded and finished watching Madoka?

Guess who decided to celebrate this by putting their manliest character in magical girl gear?

God this was fun though. I’ll do the last of the style meme requests tomorrow!

There were some things that happened to you that you couldn’t control.

The weather, for instance, is a prime example.

The internal thoughts and motivations of others is another.

Waxing your eyebrows, however, is something you do have complete control over. You have to be either a novice at waxing or an utter dope to not get it right.

Radai, of course, was a combination of the two.

Which would probably explain why she had ripped off her entire right eyebrow.
