Do you Know what is happening in Venezuela? This is what is happening. This is what has been happening during a week. The students have been protesting in a pacific way against the repressive and tyrant government that we have since 1999 (yes, 15 years living with insecurity, food and medicine shortages, deprivation of liberty, and media blackout) and what is the police and the army doing? Beating us, shooting us, and recently some students were condemned to jail for 13 years!! For what crime? For claiming justice and democracy. Please, share this post, the world needs to know.
In the 70’s they blamed the Dobermans. In the 80’s the German Shepherds. In the 90’s they blamed the Rottweilers. Now they blame Pit bulls. The animal is not to blame it’s the owner. There’s no such thing as a bad dog just a bad owner. Dogs don’t organize dog fights. Dogs don’t profit off dog fights. Dogs are the victims here. Seems like these days the victim is always blamed. Stop being ignorant. And stop the people who are organizing dog fights. Don’t blame the dog. Blame the person behind the dog.
This set is dedicated to all my followers who are going through hard times right now. Never let anyone to tell you how to life your life, you have the power in you to make anything you wish possible, so if something makes you happy, go for it!
Let the world know that in Mexico, good people are fighting for their lives against the corrupt goverment and the organized crime -wich is the same shit- Let the world know that the good people in Mexico are dying at this very moment.
someone at my school finally gets it. there was another one about how people need to stop romanticizing depression and anxiety and suicide but our asshole assistant principle took them down because they were “sending the wrong message”
Your name is Finnick Adam Nelson and you don’t know how long you’ve been at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria, but for whatever reason you sure like spending your time talking with the night guards and blowing air in their faces.

“My life has been about living like a monk and looking like a priest so that people will come up to me and tell me their most appalling stories. They have to make their confession to somebody, and it might as well be me.”
Because I can’t wear sweatpants and no makeup without people thinking there’s something wrong with me.
Because I know they will say “well it’s your fault you got raped” so it’s better not to tell anyone at all.
Because so many dads-to-be get disappointed when the doctor says “It’s a girl.”
Because being out and about after 10pm is considered “risky.”
Because if I say “no” I’m a bitch and if I say “yes” I’m a bitch.
Because if I’m dancing in the club it’s seen as an open invitation for men to get laid.
Because there is no hesitation in showing female nudity, even in shows that are for women and are supposed to be “feminist.” (The L Word)
Because in their eyes the worst thing I could ever do is to “choose” to be a lesbian
Because men can sing lyrics like “Face down ass up that’s the way I like to fuck” and people say “That’s my jam!” But women sing lines like “If you ever ever feel like you’re nothing you’re fucking perfect to me” and people say “is it necessary for her to curse?” So she makes a clean version.
Because if I speak out against the things I care about they’ll call me a “man-hating feminist” even though some of my closest friends are men, or “fag hag” because gay men are absolutely wonderful, or "bitchy" because I don’t let anyone disrespect me like the bullies used to do before.
Because we need to create this Hashtag #YesAllWomen so people can see the struggles we have to face.
Because I really hope everyone who sees this reblogs this because equality is something that helps us all no matter what gender, race, age, or sexual orientation.
TODAY at UT Austin, 5 Abortion Rights Freedom Riders, including intiator of Stop Patriarchy, Sunsara Taylor, were singled out and arrested when they joined with dozens of others in protesting the impending closure of abortion clinics in Texas, on the first official day of classes outside of UT Austin.
Thousands of students gathered as the freedom riders blocked traffic for over half an hour. About a dozen people joined in the action on the spot, incredibly inspired by what was happening. Hundreds took videos and photos, and watched on in awe.
There were many different reactions, both positive and negative. A few cars nearly hit some of the protesters, frustrated by not being able to get to lunch, or to work on time, etc. Yes, some people were inconvenienced today, but this is so much bigger than the day to day grind.
As we await the result of HB2 in Texas, it is still the case that most people do not even know that this law is scheduled to shut down all but 6 abortion clinics in the state. It is still the case that people think this is just a question of opinion, meanwhile this right is being stripped away, and affecting real women every single day.
It is long past time that students, not only understand what’s going on nationally with this abortion rights emergency, but actually understand the implications of this, to half of humanity, and fight back. It is long past time that this complacency be challenged, that these lowered sights be raised, and that students throw in on this fight.
Today, students were confronted with the reality of what it means when abortion is illegal or inaccessible. The question that poses itself in a moment like this: What will your life be about? What will your college career be about? Throughout history, students have always played a major role in movements against injustice. That needs to be the case today, in this abortion rights emergency.
Every single student, who does not want to see women forced to bear children against their will, who does not want to see women dying from self-inducing abortions due to inaccessibility, who does not want to see women’s rights be slammed back, and this backwards view of women be codified into law, needs to act NOW. It is not too late, we have not lost this battle. This is one of those moments in history where what we do really matters, and could have society wide impact.
