PREACH IT GIRL
have you ever heard about condoms or other methods “to not get pregnant” girl
Have you ever heard of pregnancies as a result of rape and abuse? Have you heard of the failure rates on contraception?
Have you ever heard of adoption agencies or police stations that you can literally drop your child off at for free if you can’t/won’t take care of him/her?
Have you ever heard of the thousands of children that just get circled through social services/foster homes because there are too many kids and not enough families to adopt them?
Have you ever heard of the millions of parents wanting & waiting to adopt those children because they can’t have kids on their own?
Have you heard that a report by Unicef says there are 143 million and 210 million orphans worldwide, and this is not including abandonment, or sold children. It is estimated that 5760 children become orphans every day. So to try to make the case that it’s the responsibility of someone with a uterus to give birth against their will because other people want children is bullshit and absolutely ludicrous.
Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.
We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.
No justice, no peace.

It also teaches you not to wander around 19th century forests at night practicing your marriage vows because Helena Bonham Carter might accidentally come back from the dead and force you into mummy matrimony.
Welcome to Passive, New York
As Andy Henriquez, a 19 year old from Washington Heights lay in his cell dying from a tear in his aorta, an artery that supplies blood to the heart, he asked a guard if he could call his mother just to say goodbye. For days he suffered in pain barely able to breathe as the blood made its way down to his groin. He request was denied. His fellow inmates knew something was wrong. They screamed and kicked doors in a failed bid to get Andy some help.
A doctor who visited him earlier that day prescribed him hand cream and wrote the prescription in the wrong name.
Hours later he was found dead on the floor of his cell.
This happened in April of last year, New Yorkers are just hearing about it today because a suit has been filed by the lawyer of Mr. Henriquez’s family.
In this last year I have been thinking about some things….
I have thought about the death of Eric Garner and the muted outrage that followed.
I have thought about all the black men who were set up by Detective Louis Scarcella from Brooklyn, who have languished in jail for years and are just now having their cases reviewed after it was discovered Scarcella was crooked and the silence that followed.
I have thought about how everyone just accepts that Stop and Frisk is a thing of the past and that the rights of black and brown men here in New York City are not still being violated.
I have thought about how slick it was for our Mayor to parade his black family in front of the cameras to get elected and how New Yorkers have yet to check him for basically being Bloomberg 2.0.
I have thought about those who live in the projects whose stewards, NYCHA, last year said they had a surplus of money to fix them and are now saying this year they have no money.
I have thought about how “affordable housing” here means you must make damn near 100k, yet no one seems to believe that this city hates its poor.
I have thought about the fact that this city has the highest rates of workplace discrimination lawsuits in the country, yet no one wants to address racism in the workplace.
I have thought about how gentrification of this city has made many neighborhoods I once loved and enjoyed unrecognizable and in my view turned its residents into the quietest, softest, most passive lot of New Yorkers I have ever experienced in my lifetime here.
Who the fuck are you people?
There will be very little outrage over Mr. Henriquez’s death. This lot of New Yorkers would be more outraged if you kicked a cat than if you choked a young black man to death or allowed one to internally bleed to death on the floor of a jail cell.
Royalty Meme ♛ [1/5] Books
↳ The Royal Diaries series
The Royal Diaries, an offshoot of Scholastic’s Dear America series, consisted of twenty books published between 1999 and 2005; each book was a fictionalized diary or journal written by the title character—generally a royal or noblewoman between twelve and sixteen. Taken as a whole, the Diaries spanned more than 1500 years and nearly every continent. They are particularly notable for their beautiful covers, though the 2013 re-launch of the series has replaced it with new artwork. A full list of books can be found here.
Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
so basically we want Donna back
This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.
Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.
boost the fuck out of this, and make sure you include their goddamn names and country of origin.
