Statement

Beauty is not long hair, skinny legs, tanned skin or perfect teeth. Believe me. Beauty is the face of who cried and now smiles, beauty is the scar on your knee since you fell when you were a kid, beauty is the circles when love doesn’t let you sleep, beauty is the expression on the face when the alarm rings in the morning, it’s the melted makeup when you have a shower, it’s the laughter when you make a joke you’re the only one who can understand, beauty is meeting his gaze and stopping understanding, beauty is your gaze when you see him, it’s when you cry for all you paranoias, beauty is the lines marked by time. Beauty is what we feel in the inside which also shows outside us. Beauty is the marks the life leaves on us, all the kicks and the caresses the memories leave us. Beauty is letting yourself live.

I’m infuriated the reality of this world leaves me fearful for my own. Being a woman of color, I can truthfully state that I don't feel safe around those who are sworn to honor and uphold the law. I shouldn’t have to worry anytime my father walks outside the front door of our home. I shouldn’t be afraid of that he may be taken away from and shot dead because of false perceptions that all black men are dangerous regardless of education or status. There have been too many senseless murders by officers that have gone unpunished. The government is not doing a very good job at policing their own. It seems that nobody cares that this targeting is happening to people of color until it hits home in their backyard. I also believe that those who are non black should take action and be vocal about these tragedies taking place regardless of fear. The first step is to be truthful and acknowledge that racial problems remain in this country. Sadly on social media and news outlets minorities are always depicted as violent criminals and people who are lazy, don’t want to work and live off of welfare. Donald Trump, the man that wants to be our president and run the free world, can take it upon himself to go on social media and make offensive comments about every minority group but remain silent about something as important as this. Why is there not enough conversation about gun violence in our communities. People are always talking about guns in the hands of responsible gun owners but yet we have police officers that completely abuse that right. A society that does not trust what is suppose to be good and fair only creates chaos and resentment towards authority. WHERE DOES IT END? We need more problems solvers of injustice instead of those giving lip service. Injustice has no skin color or boundaries. #BlackLiveMatter

[Re: Code307 Video]

The Code307 video was a project submitted to us by members of our community. 

We have received messages regarding the use of topics such as self-harm, depression, suicide ideation in the video and their disappointment in our decision to publish the video despite the topics included.

Our response is quite simple. LGBT Viewers Deserve Better is a community oriented movement and was created as platform to represent a community that was previously not represented. These stories of self-harm, depression, suicide are as much a part of our community as the stories of success in fundraising for a billboard project, or trending ww for hours on end. 

We understand that these topics may not be easy for others to see or talk about. For that very reason, we choose to talk about these things. The stories of backlash are great but it isn’t the same as when you actually talk about what those “backlash stories” are. We believe in the need to shed a light on what exactly happened to our community following 307. Yes, we were able to recover and bounce back. But we must never forget how we got here, less of all be ashamed of what we had to endure to get to where we are.

No one dares talk about the struggles that we faced following 307. If they choose to remain silent, and if we choose to remain silent, then who will speak up for the thousands of people who relapsed after 307 as a result of Jason’s queerbaiting?

We choose to speak up for those who can’t.

We choose to speak up because we can.

We choose to speak up because our stories deserve to be heard.

Hello dear fans,

after there’s been written quite a lot about me in the past days I would like to take the chance to explain my current health situation to you personally.

Sadly an injury at the adductors returned during the DFB-Cup-Final and got worse during the match. Afterwards I worked hard for ten long days with the medical staff of the DFB to get in shape again and be fit for the EURO. Unfortunarely we didn’t manage to get to the set healing process to make it possible for me to be fit soon enough for France. Because the medics didn’t come up with a positive result regarding to the EURO, we had a long conversation alongside the national coach and decided that it wouldn’t be good for the team’s set goal as well as for my own health for me to join the team in France.

The most important in the coming weeks is to cure this injury with the clear goal to be able to give 100% again afterwards for Borussia Dortmund as well as for the German National Team.

I once again want to say a big thank you to the medical staff of the DFB for their support!

Furthermore I want to thank you for all for the well-wishes and Birthday-congratulations! They give me a lot of strength and mean a lot to me!

As for Joachim Löw as well as the team I wish them a lot of success and all the best for the EURO in France!

I will come back!

Your Marco

anonymous asked:

hast du gelesen was jeanluc über dich schreibt ?

Mir ist ehrlich gesagt egal was diese Person über mich erzählt, es ist sowieso nie die Wahrheit, zumindest lässt er das weg, was wirklich wichtig ist.
Ruft mich an und beleidigt mich als Hure, um vor seinen möchtegern Freunden gut da zu stehen. Er macht sich sogar darüber lustig das mein Vater wegen seiner Krankheit dieses Jahr nicht überleben wird. Mir werden auch ständig Screenshots geschickt was er schreibt und ehrlich gesagt finde ich es erbärmlich das er denkt, dass mich seine Beziehung auch nur einen Furz interessiert. Ich bin glücklich und wenn seine Beziehung nicht gut läuft und er versucht da irgendwie “Action” rein zu bringen indem er seiner Freundin selbst auf Ask fm solche Nachrichten Anonym schickt, dann muss bei denen ja einiges falsch laufen.
Und falls ihr mir nicht glauben solltet, ich hab alle Screenshots immer noch und wenn das nicht aufhört bin ich diejenige, die ihn anzeigt und zwar ohne dazu zu meinen Eltern rennen zu müssen, damit sie mich zur Polizei begleiten.

To the user who thinks my last post is gross:

This post was meant to be a joke. I didn’t want to offend or harm anyone. I respect your opinion, but I won’t tolerate that you keep bothering me with your tags and comments. No need to continue writing the same things time and again. Even if I delete my post, it will remain on this website.

So, reblogging it several times and ranting won’t help to get it off your dash. That doesn’t make much sense to me.

Use your blacklist and add my name if you don’t want to see my post(s) anymore. You can also ban my username completely. if you want to, you can also block certain posts with help of xkit extensions.

Feel free to report it or whatever if you think it is gross and/or inappropriate.

You can read a lot into comics like that. Maybe you should not assume the worst right away…

Maybe they have a basic agreement concerning nightly kissing and undressing even when the other one is asleep, so that they can act out their weird kinks and fantasies. Maybe it is just a fantasy of Baz and not real at all. (Like his face spitting one…)

And then I imagine myself spitting in his face. and then I imagine licking it off his cheek and kissing him. (Because I’m disturbed. Ask Anyone.)

Well, I actually didn’t want to say anything, but you almost begged for it. If you wanted to put me right off drawing and Tumblr in general, you did a great job.

For anyone who wants to know, here are the tags and messages I’m talking about:

MBTI Opposite Friends

I have ENFP, ESTP, INFP, ESFJ, ESTJ, ISFJ, ISFP and ISTP friends, but I’ve realized something: the people who I am more comfortable with are types almost opposites. I don’t really know why, call it balance, call it curiosity, call it what you want. 

I’ve been thinking about my relationship with all of them throughout the time, and I’ve got to the conclusion that my best friends are, for what they’ve shown, said, and meant to me, ENTJ, INTP and ISTJ, and I wouldn’t change them for any other type more “likely” to get on well with me just because of stupid stereotypes or beliefs. (isn’t it obvious?)

I am not necessarily more comfortable among extraverts, 
I neither feel more “understood” among feelers

I don’t necessarily trust more on perceivers
I don’t enjoy my life and have interesting conversations exclusively with sensors 

I just want you all to understand this. 

Don’t give up on a friendship/relationship just because you’re both different or seem to be far away from each other. 

Sometimes weird relationships are the most fulfilling ones.
