requested by my dear @cocopuffs312, but i want this song, this cover to be a safe place for everyone in time of need. i know that the original version is, obviously, better, but this is from one clique member to you. i love you. stay alive.
That means that local schools now have a choice about how to treat their trans students. Which could be pretty bad news in some places– but it also means that you have the opportunity to let your schools and school boards know that you care about how trans kids are treated!
There’s no national directory of school boards, so you’ll have to Google your area’s school board (or school committee, in some places). But once you do, you can tell them that you care about what happens to trans kids in your area.
Remember: school boards are locally elected. Your vote, and your voice, will count so much more to these people than to senators and representatives at the national level!
Hi! My name is [name], and I’m a [your city] resident. I’m [writing/calling] to ask you to protect transgender children in [your city]’s schools. I’m very upset about the president’s recent declaration that transgender children are not protected by Title IX, and can be forced to use the bathroom of the sex they were assigned at birth. Transgender kids already face bullying and harassment, and I’m worried that forcing them to use the wrong bathroom will make it much more dangerous and uncomfortable for them. Please allow [your city] students to choose for themselves which bathroom they’ll be most comfortable in. These kids are counting on your help and protection!
So their intimate moment is their fucking heart eyes all over the place of course it is they’re so in love it’s bloody obvious for all the world to see how did they ever think they could hide a love as devastatingly pure and whole and unstoppable as theirs, seriously.
Hey I'm planning/writing a dystopian story, where babies are made in a synthetic womb. And the main character is one of those "natural births" where no one is born naturally. And so, she is raised by her adoptive parents. But I have no clue how to start this story. I was thinking when she is 21 and starting her "predetermined" job, which is a journalist for the only newspaper. So help me please. I would appreciate it.
Ah, sounds amazing! What I thought might be easiest was to give you a list full of starting prompts to try and help out. If that’s not a good idea and not what you’re looking for, just let me know, but here’s some ways you might start off:
She knew she was different, after all, everyone had told her it everyday. There was always something slightly off about her senses; that was compared to everyone else’s. She could see things long distance and people’s voices always came out louder than they seemed to mean. No one else flinched when they were spoken too…
She couldn’t place her finger on it. She was young, but far from stupid, in fact she was rather ingenious. That was until her mother told her something a little unexpected, a little twisted…
She winced as her peers took no notice to the freezing air that settled among them. It December, yet every child was still taking P.E lessons outside. How was she the only one to feel that?
The hospital smelt of plastic and cleaning products and it made her shiver as she went to visit her half-brothers room. He was ill, again, and for some strange reason, her family were blaming it on her. They kept telling her that she’d cursed the family, she didn’t understand it…
Jumping from the railings, she ran to catch up with (character’s name here). Her balance suddenly failed her and she slipped, falling at her friends ankles. “What are you doing?” She spun around laughing a little, “I just… I got dizzy…” She squeaked at the sound of her hoarse voice, “Dizzy? Never felt it. What is it?” She frowned up at her, wondering if she was joking…
She flinched as the cold air made the hairs on her arms stand up. Everything was too bright and her head felt a little too heavy for her neck. She jumped at hearing her mother speak, “(Protagonist name), will you please calm down? They’re only drawing blood! The mother we adopted you from, she… she may still be alive.”
She looked at herself in the mirror and all at once everything had seemed to change. One moment she was one of the billions of people, but now she seemed to be one out of the billion. She frowned thinking a little too hard and making her head hurt. She’d read about this in books, but knowing that she was one of them, was frightening and she seemed completely different now.
I also imagined her having some extreme senses compared to everyone else, seeing as she was not of an artificial birth. I’m not sure if that’s what you imagined though, so I’m sorry if that isn’t what you’re looking for! I hope these maybe helped start you off, I’d love to read it XD Good luck my darlin’, lots of love from Yasmine xox
I am tempted to literally start a petition that states how much we want a game from 2k whether its Kevin’s team or not that is all about Rapture going to shit. Im talking cut scenes about Andrew Ryan as a kid like in the book, to him in his office creating Rapture. How it gets built and then playing through either as multiple characters or as Andrew or just a citizen of Rapture. @bioshock2k
what’s so frustrating is how the entire world is silent right now. especially these fucking celebrities and the media who all speak up when there’s a tragedy in America or Paris etc. but are MUTE right now on everything going on in Aleppo. Why are people turning a blind eye? this is a genocide. a crime against ALL of humanity. is it because it’s muslims being killed that no one wants to speak up? and at the same time its so mind-blowing how none of the other muslim leaders in the world seem to be doing anything to help their brothers and sisters in Aleppo. the world is silent while innocent people are being killed.
