young survivors

Lena has canonically done nothing wrong. She’s one of the only characters without questionable behavior saddled into her backstory. People who don’t like her should just say they don’t like her…it’s not like they need a reason. Anyone is allowed to dislike Lena but making accusations to trying mischaracterize a young abuse survivor? Ugly. Disgusting. Evil.


When you’re a teen, life can be so hard. Best friends getting buried in the back yard. School is hard enough without enough without running for your life. It’s time to get along, get along, get alone and put down that knife! We’re gonna be there through thick and thin! We’re gonna be there if you lose or win! We’re gonna scream, scream, scream, scream, scream after dark! ♪ Scream After Dark ♪.  Scream After Dark is not recorded in front of a live studio audience. 

“Inner child”

Does anyone else find it really annoying when people think little/young alters are the same as your “inner child”?  

I know obviously there may be overlaps, but littles are completely formed child personalities with their own likes/dislikes, style, tastes, gender etc.  Not just the “child” part of your personality.  

Alters are formed as a response to chronic childhood trauma. Everyone has an inner child.

I was sexually abused by my older cousin. As a result, it now freaks me out to see men interact with young girls. Even if it’s just a grandfather who has his young granddaughter sitting on his lap… it makes me want to run up to them and take the girl somewhere safe - away from the man.

part one: poison youth
for tired souls and degenerate beauty queens, for smoke filling fragile lungs, for the broken and the bruised, and for the small flicker of hope among the villains in your head

part two: rich youth
for young survivors and our diverse generation, for breathing in a new dawn, for the kings and the queens, and for sticking together to fight against those who leave us in the dark

MOGAI was a term suggested by a young CSA survivor in order to head off the problem our community has faced for years with regard to acronyms becoming unwieldy, unhelpful, and uninclusive. It stands for Marginalized Orientations, Gender Alignments, and Intersex. While there has been some conversation about how to clarify it over the years, the vast majority of it’s condemnation came from people who preferred the acronym because it allowed them to treat the community like an in-group. A place you had to be ~allowed~ into by existing members rather than an open door for support for those abandoned by larger society.

If you prefer MOGAI to LGBT+, your reasons are understandable and your preference is good.

Some fears from the proponents of MOGAI were that’s would allow already privileged members of the community to once again supersede the presence of more marginalized members, for example, white, cis gay men becoming the face of the community while the presence of black, trans, bisexual women was hidden and erased and given no room. They hoped that they could continue to expand the acronym so that every community within our community could be recognized and supported by name.

If you prefer LGBT+ to MOGAI, your reasons are understandable and your preference is good.

We have had many, many names under which we rallied. We will have many, many more. It’s important that we understand our ever-evolving nature and respect those names and their purposes and creations. And regardless of the shifting language we use, what makes the community is not our names but our people.

we got someone a fluffy chicken

we got parents to accept that transgender is a thing and not a phase

now we have to get the tumblr staff to STOP PROMOTING 50 SHADES OF GREY IN SPONSORED ADS. this movie glorifies abusive relationships and features unsafe BDSM practice. stop forcing adverts for it onto the dashboards of impressionable young tumblr users and survivors of abuse

Singer Shawn Mendes Heads to The 100 for "Unique" and "Special" Role

Is The 100 doing a musical episode this season?! We’ve got an exclusive bit of casting news for the CW’s most underrated show that has us thinking maybe…

E! News can exclusively reveal that recording artist Shawn Mendes is heading to The 100 in season three! The “Stitches” crooner, coming off a hugely successful year with a debut album that hit No. 1 on the charts, a tour with Taylor Swift and his own sold-out headlining tour, is set to appear in the season premiere. He’s playing a scrappy young Ark survivor who gets into a tricky situation and uses his particular talents to get out of it.

Seeing as how Mendes has the voice of an angel, we’re pretty sure this “young Ark survivor” might be busting out his pipes onscreen because otherwise that’d be such a waste of Mendes’ talents…meaning The 100 is totally getting musical. And we could not be more excited about it!

“Shawn is a big fan of the show, and reached out to me on Twitter about potentially working together,” executive producer Jason Rothenberg tells E! News. “He’s a very talented artist, and we knew we wanted to do something special and different for the premiere. Shawn gave us a unique opportunity and I can’t wait for our fans to see our collaboration.”

Yeah, it’s sounding more and more like our suspicions are correct. We love nothing more than seeing our favorite TV shows go musical for an episode, and we’ve been dying to see that happen for some time now. But we never thought the next show to take on that particular TV trope would be The 100!
