My life is about me and those I love. I am an artist of many talents. How many you ask? More than you can count. I am able to see the amazingness in small things and the complex of others.

we need to stop idealizing “speaking out” to the point where victims/survivors feel coerced to share their traumatic experiences around sexualized violence because they feel like they need to prove that they deserve support for being “brave enough” to speak…

tbh if you shit on people who go to community college youre gross and i dont like you

tbh doing this is very classist & ableist as shit

not everyone has the money, time or energy to go to four-year college

the current academic system is straight up harmful and toxic esp if you have any kind of disability and (in my experience at least) community colleges can be way more flexible and accommodating to student’s needs

La Secretaría de Gobernación inició un proceso administrativo para sancionar a la cantante pop Miley Cyrus, quien durante su show de este martes 16 de septiembre, en la Arena Monterrey, se inclinó para que uno de sus bailarines le golpeara los glúteos con una bandera nacional-
Nota: http://www.proceso.com.mx/?p=382340
Lo curioso es que es el PAN quién pide la sanción siendo que ellos junto a los otros partidos  se limpian el culo diario con ella y la pinche constitución.

i hope they charge her 

Basically Miley Cyrus is in trouble with the Mexican government for rubbing a Mexican flag all over her fake butt that she was wearing. She could face a fine, like that matters, seeing as how she has plenty of money. Personally I don’t think it should be illegal to deface a flag, that falls under someone’s right to  freedom of speech. But Miley is being extremely disrespectful by doing this in Mexico, and this isn’t the first time she’s accessorized black culture or disrespected people’s culture/national symbols in general.

Mexico’s laws regarding the national flag differ from those in the United States. You can’t use the Mexican flag on shirts, or merchandise, let alone burn it or express your opinion destructively using it. I’m guessing it has a little to do with the nature of the flag’s design; the story of Tenochtitlán, founded by heeding a Mexica oracle, indigenous pride in all of that, and the history of colonization (which, ironically, provided impetus for that flag). Given Mexico’s past of occupation & revolution, laws are strict on certain political expressions—especially when it comes to outsiders.
Miley Cyrus would know nothing or care nothing for understanding any of this. She is of the vampire clan, puro appropriation, whitewash, & disrespect to raise her own profits. I heard she got fined 200K for this, I hope it’s true.

She also did this on Mexican independence day, which adds another layer of disrespect and a lack of understanding for our history and our culture. Also “freedom of speech” means different things in different countries. Just because she has an American sense of entitlement doesn’t give her the right to ignore local laws and customs due to ignorance.

Since the holidays are coming up, I figured I should post about this again. 

If you or someone you know suffers from anxiety, dermatillomania, trichotillomania or find that you simply need something to do with your hands - then you may want to get (or ask for!) a spinner ring

I just now realized that I’ve always wanted this.

The bodies of two Tampa teenagers were discovered Thursday morning on a roadside in Duval County.
Angelia Mangum, 19, and Tjhisha Ball, 18, were found about 1 a.m., according to law enforcement. A witness told Jacksonville news station WJAX the teenagers were bound with zip ties and lying on top of one another.
"Two witnesses were driving by and they saw bodies and they called 911," Sgt. T.K. Waters told news station WJXT.
Officers were dispatched to Sisson Drive, near the intersection of Main Street North and Clark Road.
Investigators suspect foul play and are trying to determine the causes of death.
"They were in an area where they would have been noticed, so I think it was fairly recently since they’d been left there,” Waters also told WJXT.
A medical examiner has taken the bodies to determine the cause of death.
"I just don’t understand what happened," Ball’s sister, Crystal Moore, said.
According to Moore, both women had been living in the Jacksonville area off and on for approximately a year and a half.
"I feel like sometimes that I failed," Ball’s mother, Jerlean Moore, said. "What could I have done? What could I have taught her better? It hurts…it really hurts."
It’s a pain that’s only worsened by the fact that no one has been caught.

let’s care just as much about black girls being murdered as we do about black boys. signal boost.

Report: Honeybee Death Rate Is Currently Too High for Survival of the Species

assgod:

ghostofcommunism:

divacuppa:

A government report released last week surprisingly admits that the honeybee species are dying off at a rate too high to ‘guarantee their long term survival’.

It has been well proven that the primary factor leading to this extinction is the presence of neonicotinoid poisons, of course present in insecticides sold by and/or used by corporations such as Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dupont and their products. A recent study from Harvard, published on March 27th of this year, has definitively confirmed what scientists outside the US have been saying for years: neonicotinoids are the [emphasis added] cause of colony collapse disorder(CCD). The study showed that 50% of colonies populated by bees who had been in contact with these pesticides collapsed, compared to only 1 in 6 who were not in contact with neonicotinoids.

The European Union understands that the death of honeybees is an unprecedented death for human beings and mother earth, as they have banned neonicotinoid poisons.

However, American powers refuse to believe the problem is neonicotinoid insecticides and they continue to be in use here.

These corporations with armies of lobbyists and politicians bought and paid for, like  Monsanto, are playing dumb and suggesting that ‘mites’ are the cause for the death rate of honeybees, a problem so bad that it means their extinction if they continue on this path. This is dangerous anti-science rhetoric, borderline scientific denialism from the American agro-chemical establishment. 

Well, did mites cause the honeybees to go extinct in the approximate 14 million years they survived here before humans invented neonicotinoid chemicals? Of course not. It seems only things as foreign to Earth as neonicotinoids can cause such a drastic loss of crucial life on our planet and the solution is obvious; inform people that if we keep allowing the honeybees to die at this rate, we will be literally without almost all of the fruits we enjoy. Oh and stop using neonicotinoids.

If we don’t seriously stop this soon, then a corporation like Monsanto would likely take advantage of the lack of bees to pollinate and create fruit, and attempt to monopolize the products of nature because the fruits will then require individual, manual pollination or more complex measures. While this may seem far fetched, in the absence of honeybees and acknowledging that manual pollination is highly labor intensive, micro pollinator drones may be in our future if something is not done to save the bees.

If you are reading this, there is a good chance absolutely none of this information is new. If the bees are not nursed back to health as a species, say goodbye to these things- (unless you want genetically modified, manually pollinated products of Monsanto in the wake of the extinction of the honeybee): Apples Mangos Rambutan Kiwi Fruit Plums Peaches Nectarines Guava Rose Hips Pomegranites Pears Black and Red Currants Alfalfa Okra Strawberries Onions Cashews Cactus Prickly Pear Apricots Allspice Avocados Passion Fruit Lima Beans Kidney Beans Adzuki Beans Green Beans Orchid Plants Custard Apples Cherries Celery Coffee Walnut Cotton Lychee Flax Acerola – used in Vitamin C supplements Macadamia Nuts Sunflower Oil Goa beans Lemons Buckwheat Figs Fennel Limes Quince Carrots Persimmons Palm Oil Loquat Durian Cucumber Hazelnut Cantaloupe Tangelos Coriander Caraway Chestnut Watermelon Star Apples Coconut Tangerines Boysenberries Starfruit Brazil Nuts  Beets Mustard Seed Rapeseed Broccoli Cauliflower Cabbage Brussels Sprouts Bok Choy (Chinese Cabbage) Turnips Congo Beans Sword beans Chili peppers, red peppers, bell peppers, green peppers Papaya Safflower Sesame Eggplant Raspberries Elderberries Blackberries Clover Tamarind Cocoa Black Eyed Peas Vanilla Cranberries Tomatoes Grapes

can’t say no one predicted this

down with monsanto

Our food system is extremely dependent on honey bees, if they die out, it’s going to start to collapse. Smash Big Agro before it’s too late.

SAVE THE BEES!
