help me I'm feeling so so suicidal all I can think of is cutting myself. My friends hate me and think im some dirty skank hoe who is trash I feel so worthless I just want to end it all

Hey friend. I can stay with you the whole night/morning but the problem is is that I’m not a professional and I can’t possibly give you the help you need that is better than a professional. First things first, you’re not dirty skank hoe and your friends are probably just major assholes that you don’t need. You are worth so many nice and happy things on this planet. Do not end it all. We all love you very much.

Hi! I'm new in veganism. What should I eat instead of milk?

There are many alternatives to dairy milk such as almond milk, oat milk, hemp milksoy milk, rice milk, and coconut milk. You can buy chocolate milk, coffee creamer, butter, cheese, cream cheesemayonnaise, sour cream, yogurt, ice cream and more. I suggest checking out this vegan starter kit, my vegan resource masterpost and Vegan Outreach’s substitute guide. Below are round ups for making your own dairy alternatives, along with a couple other related round ups. I hope this helps some!

This pic pisses me off on so many levels!!!! I won’t even get in too much details however if y’all want to express some ppl’s stupidity stop using the word Africa as if it’s the name of one country (for starters), no wonder many ppl think it’s country,
(I grew up in one of Africa’s countries and I never had to drink water out of a little yellow thing)
or better yet, make a college with the drought that’s happening in Cali!!! Agrrrr
Africa isn’t a country, Africa isn’t a pit hole, Africa has lots of natural resources and all Countries in Africa would be wealthy if we had different politicians, who are placed in power by—— I’ll let you guess.
Anyway I find this pic offensive.

Typical Interaction with Actual Child: For "Adult Privilege" blogers
  • EXPECTATION (according to @dragon-in-a-fez):
  • Child:*brings toy up to parent*
  • Parent:"Go put it back, I don't have enough money. If you're good you can have it in 2 weeks when I get paid again.
  • Child:"Okay. :] I understand money is a limited resource and you buying me toys isn't an actual indicator of how much you love me. I will patiently wait for two weeks without continually pressing the issue. I love and appreciate all of the numerous sacrifices you make on my behalf as my primary caregiver, because toys are a luxury."
  • REALITY:
  • Child:*Brings toy up to parent*
  • Parent:"Go put it back, I don't have enough money. If you're good you can have it in 2 weeks when I get paid again."
  • Child:"But its only $10!"
  • Parent:"*Sigh* I already told you, I don't have enough money. Go put it back.
  • Child:"Noooooo! Please?"
  • Parent:*Growing annoyance* I said no."
  • Child:"PLEASE?"
  • Parent:*ignores and continues shopping*
  • Child:*Follows them around the store* PLEASE? PLEEEASE? PLEASE?? ITS ONLY $10! WHY CANT I HAVE IT TODAY? ITS ONLY $10! YOU DONT HAVE $10? PLEASE? PLEASE? ITS ONLY $10. BUT ITS ONLY $10. ITS JUST $10. PLEASE? PLEASE? PLEASE? PLEASE? PLEASE?"
  • Parent:"If you keep this up, you're not getting it at all
  • Child:"NOOOO! *Takes thing out of cart* Okay put this back, now can I get it?!"
  • Parent:":| No. We need that. You can wait 2 weeks"
  • Child:"NO I CANT, IT MIGHT NOT BE THERE"
  • Parent:"Then you'll just have to wait until christmas/your birthday/later. Now this discussion is over. You're embarrassing me in public.
  • Child:*gets to the register and puts it on the counter*
  • Cashier:"Are you getting this?"
  • Parent:*Immensely irritated after FORTY MINUTES OF BEGGING/WHINING* "No."
  • Child:"*Starts crying* BUT I WANT IT"
  • Parent:"I already told you to PUT IT BACK. You're not getting it at all now, because you dont know how to act."
  • Child:*CRIES/SCREAMS LOUDER*
  • Adult privilege bloggers:"Taking away a child's special toy is stealing you dont own your children children are capable of making informed rational decisions.
Where to Find Tolkien's Thoughts on Religion

image

I think probably your best resource would be The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien - the collection of letters cover a wide variety of topics, but some that might be useful to your research include:

  • #49: A letter to C.S. Lewis criticizing his views on Christianity and divorce.
  • #142: A letter to Fr. Robert Murray, which includes a paragraph about the Christian influence on LotR.
  • #153: A letter to Peter Hastings, who had a few theological complaints about LotR, which Tolkien addresses here (including reincarnation and the ability of Evil to create - as well as a note on institutionalized religion in Middle Earth, which I actually talk about in this post)
  • #195: A letter to Amy Ronald, which is very very short, but contains this sentence: “Actually I am a Christian, and indeed a Roman Catholic, so that I do not expect ‘history’ to be anything but a ‘long defeat’ – though it contains (and in a legend may contain more clearly and movingly) some samples or glimpses of final victory.”
  • #250: A long letter to Michael Tolkien, his oldest sone and a priest. Michael had written regarding his “sagging faith”, and most of the letter is taken up by Tolkien’s response to that. Basically a gold mine if you’re looking for Tolkien’s own words on his personal faith.
  • #306: Another letter to Michael Tolkien. It discusses, among other things, Tolkien’s thoughts on “trends” in the Church (probably a reference to Vatican II)
  • Honestly, there are probably many more, but these were the main ones that jumped out at me.

Also, there are probably a few essays of his that discussion religion. The only one that’s coming to mind right now is “On Fairy-Stories”, which mainly discusses Tolkien’s philosophy on the fantasy genre, but includes some really interesting theological tidbits (my personal favorite: “Fantasy remains a human right: we make in our measure and in our derivative mode, because we are made: and not only made, but made in the image and likeness of a Maker.”)

Does anybody know of another source about Tolkien and his faith? If so, please reblog with your suggestion!

What if you could just get more resources to make an unset. Like if you cloned Maro, but the clone came out a little funny. Like funny in the head, not funny haha. But since it's Maro, he is funny haha. So he could lead the unset team. Then after it's made and his puns stop making sense and his cellular makeup starts breaking down you'll have to put him down. It'd be sad, but you'd have an unset.

I have nothing here, but this was too great to not share.

Can you have a calling for witchcraft? Since I was very young I've been very interested in the supernatural, witches, and general magic. (I do not currently practice witchcraft.)

I mean I don’t see why not, however, practicing at some point would be something I recommend. Mostly because those who have a calling towards something should practice it. However if you would like some resources, here are some right here:

Hope this helps!

just here to say that as much as i hate terfs and people who share their vitriol toward trans women, it’s never okay to brush off the misogyny they experience *just because* they’re terfs.

i will never prioritize them over trans women but i’ll choose them over patriarchy any day. and i WILL actively support women over men when i can spare the resources.

nothing about the victim makes systemic oppression “okay this time.”

Please remember that we cannot tell you who you are. We can give you resources to help you figure that out for yourself. The only one who has the answer to whether you are asexual or not is yourself.

The First World War and American Society

Although the United States didn’t officially enter the war until 1917, American society was profoundly affected by the events from the very beginning. 

Find further resources from us here on Tumblr, at the First World War Centenary Hub on our UK website, World War I: Commemorating the Centennial on our US website, the University of Oxford First World War activities, the World War I Centenary: Continuations and Beginnings resource center from the University of Oxford and JISC, Bodleian Libraries’ Oxford World War I Centenary Programme, and more to come throughout 2014. 

What books would you add to a list of resources for studying the impact of the First World War on American society?

Assalamu Alaykum, I know you're super busy and probably don't have time for your tumblr ask box but I just wanted to ask for any books on seera that you recommend. I'm starting college next week after going to Islamic school my whole life and want to maintain some kind of Islamic studies on the side. Jazak Allah Khair Walaykum Asalam.

Walaykum Assalam!

Seerah resources, love the question mA :)

1 Seerah Podcast Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda is doing, perhaps, the most in-depth audio seerah study that’s available for download in the English language. I’ve personally been there when he’s preparing - he uses numerous classical seerah sources, has all of the books out, and is providing a comprehensive study from a lens that emphasizes spiritual self-development, family, and community. You can find the first session on the bottom of the page here, there are over 100 hours recorded to this point, and they’re still going.

2 Muhammad: Man and Prophet by Adil Salahi - probably the best English seerah book resource I’ve read. While most other biographies of the Prophet [saw] function more like an encyclopedia, this text has a narrative flow to it, telling more like a story, briefly pausing to highlight points of benefit.

3 In The Footsteps of The Messenger by Dr. Tariq Ramadan - a great primer on seerah, provides great insight and details into the life of the Prophet [saw] even though it’s more on the beginner side.

For the most advanced readers…

4 Zaad ul Ma’ad by Ibnul Qayyim (r) (d. 751H/1350AD) - Written on his journey to Hajj from Damascus to Makkah (all from memory!), this text is a wonderful example of how classical scholars viewed the seerah. There are numerous rulings extrapolated from it, but if you’re just looking for virtues and benefit without law (for whatever reason), then you can also find the nuanced stories and reflections IQ shares here to be amazing.

Seerah Ibn Ishaq by Ibn Ishaq (r) (d. 150-159H) - having lived so closely to the time of the Prophet [saw], and being from the earliest generations to follow. Ibn Ishaq (r) produced a work of biography on the Prophet [saw] that has been referenced classically by scholars throughout time in their development of their own writings on Seerah.

May Allah increase our desire to learn and emulate the Prophet [saw] and our love for him. Ameen!

Your brother,

@occhicone98 for @icp Another transformation - a shed at a junk yard is used by a pro-Ukrainian citizen battalion as an interrogation room for prisoners. These include captured Russians, separatists, local drug dealers, corrupt politicians. Battalion members say that fighting corruption and change for Ukraine going forward is equally as important as winning the war and maintaining Ukraine’s sovereignty. With the war intensitying over the past few days, they will have little resources to continue this part of their struggle. I saw the prisoners but was not permitted to photograph them. They appeared nervous but in good physical condition and were being fed the same food as the battalion members.since this picture was taken last week, many of the men from this battalion have been killed at the siege in Ilovaisk. #ilovaisk #ukraine #slavaukraini #battaliondonbas #battaliondonbass #donbas #donbass #stopputin #vscocam (at near krasnoarmeask ukraine )
