abuse of power

The leading notion is that you do, that forgiveness is some kind of magical salvation. It isn’t. Maybe you’ll forgive them one day, but it’s not the place to start. Thinking about forgiving your abusive parents is just doing more of what has already damaged you, focusing on them. They conditioned you to focus on them and their needs your entire life and to ignore yourself and what you need. So the starting point friends, is not to focus more on them, but to focus on yourself. They were bad parents and they left you with a lot of work to do. You have to teach yourself everything they failed to teach you, like how to take care of yourself inside, how to know what you need, how to stand up for yourself, how to have healthy boundaries and how to have healthy relationships. If you get to a point where you feel like you can forgive them, awesome, but it is by no means the most important part of healing from abuse. Quite honestly, I’m not sure it needs to be a part of healing from the abuse at all. What I am sure of however, is that it is not the place to start. Don’t start with them. Start with you. For the first time in your life, make yourself the most important thing.

Halsey
  • Use of transphobic slurs (the t slur)
  • Kissed an underage fan without asking

She didn’t apologize and tried to defend herself by saying:

“I called her to the front, asked her if she was single, leaned down for a kiss, and she reciprocated!”

She never asked for a kiss, only asked if she was single.

Then she tweeted:

Then deleted the tweet.

  • Made fun of someone for their job
  • I don’t need to explain this one

KEEP IN MIND THAT SHE NEVER APOLOGIZED.

WHY IS THIS STILL A LAW!?!?

A Canadian law which is bluntly anti-wiccan, witch, pagan, etc.

”365. Pretending to practice witchcraft, etc.

365. Every one who fraudulently

(a) pretends to exercise or to use any kind of witchcraft, sorcery, enchantment or conjuration,

(b) undertakes, for a consideration, to tell fortunes, or

© pretends from his skill in or knowledge of an occult or crafty science to discover where or in what manner anything that is supposed to have been stolen or lost may be found,

is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction.

R.S., c. C-34, s. 323.”

‘a’ basically puts anyone who practices magick as a criminal, wtf do they stand to gain from this shit? All it does is hurt people for practicing magick.

If you want to charge for fraud, charge for fraud, don’t hurt innocent witches and people who just practice religious beliefs for doing so.

Where Are The Feminists?

Where are they now? Where are all of those feminists? A 14 YEAR OLD girl in a bikini was attacked, brutalized, and dragged around by a grown man. But oh wait. She was of color. That’s not news. That’s not of importance to feminists because they base their values on white privilege. A young black girl in a bikini can be attacked by an adult male. That’s just fine. But lord help us if this had been a little white girl. God Bless America.

VIDEO: House chamber erupts in applause over Trey Gowdy's epic defense of the Constitution

“This is not a fight between Republicans and Democrats.”  Truer words could not have been spoken on the House floor, but some in the Chamber didn’t want to hear it.  Thankfully, Trey Gowdy didn’t stop there.

here’s the video:

Gowdy is, of course, 100% right.  Refusal to stop this President’s unconstitutional actions will only delay the pain for Democrats, as some other President they don’t favor as much will come along and abuse his power in the exact same way.

5 Shockingly Childish Abuses of Power by Hospital Employees

#5. Multiple Surgeons Dabble in Organ Graffiti

Simon Bramhall, a respected surgeon at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in England, was suspended in December last year when co-workers noticed him burning his initials into a patient’s liver. The hospital is now concerned that he may have done this to hundreds of patients’ organs over the course of his 10-plus years working there, though maybe they should be more worried that Bramhall will someday decide to reclaim the organs, since he clearly called dibs.

“I refused to legitimize police violence against people by telling them that if they behave differently, maybe they won’t die,” Hill insisted. “Harry said maybe you won’t end up on the ground. Yes, there are strategies we can use to survive. But the fact that we live in a world where we have to deploy strategies not to be murdered or killed or assaulted by police unlawfully is absurd.”

“What Harry is calling arrogance, I’m calling dignity,” Hill declared. “Black people have a right to assert their dignity in public. And just because it doesn’t cohere with what police want doesn’t mean they are being arrogant or dismissive.”

anonymous asked:

y'all are so anti-cop, i just wanna know, what are you gonna do if/when someone robs you? assaults you? breaks the law? if someone broke into your house and started stealing all your stuff, would you just sit there and say "yep, take all of it. i'm not going to call the police because they're all rotten pigs, but i'm just going to let this person take all my shit." ??????

Oh yeah like that one time when I was about 12 years old and home alone. Two guys broke into my house, and when I hid and called 911 the dispatcher told me that I “don’t sound distressed enough,” and hung up on me. Then I called back and police officers finally showed up after 5 hours and told me there was nothing to do. Very helpful. 

Or that one time when I was even younger (maybe about 6 or 7) when my dad cut through a gas station instead of waiting at a stop light and a cop pulled him over. I was in the car with him, sick and my dad asked the cop to just give him the ticket, so the cop hit my dad, slammed him onto his car, and arrested him. Clearly that cop protected a lot of citizens by being unnecessarily aggressive.  

Then there was that time in high school when my boyfriend and I didn’t stand for the pledge at a school assembly. Our school had off-duty police officers survey our school, and when he saw we weren’t standing he came and yelled at us, threatened us, and tried to physically make us stand up. Because freedom or something, right?

I don’t have to trust a group of oppressors just to please you. They’ve proven time and time again they take their position of power and abuse it. And my stories are tame compared to many others, so fuck off.
