Thought I was doing better today but the pain killers wore off and I feel like shit again.
This is wonderful….
see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’.
How come I didn’t know this
Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.
I took this video of my boyfriend during one of his breakdowns not to humiliate him or broadcast his sadness, but to educate everyone on the severity of his situation. My boyfriend is Transgender (FTM) and he’s been trying to get his top surgery. When we first started dating he realized under his mom’s insurance he was fully covered to receive the surgery. Once she found out then a week or so before his surgery she lowered his coverage to where he has basic health care but could no longer receive the surgery free. He was also kicked out of his family for his transition and he can’t afford to go to school, his grandparents took his car, nobody wants to speak to him in his family. He binds everyday and it’s getting harder for him. He has crippling panic attacks before leaving the house and well this video will show things that he goes through daily. If you can find it in your heart to share and get involved with his donation page it would mean to world. I don’t make enough money or have the credit (neither of us do) to get approved for care credit. I’ve posted his donation page. If just 1,000 people can give $5 it would make a world of a difference. Please donate and share. We’re both doing as much as we can. He plans on taking out student loans in December if he can’t fund his surgery and risks prison time. Please help. http://www.gofundme.com/Kadenstransition
I’m going to keep reblogging this. It makes me incredibly upset that I can’t donate, but I am going to reblog this and ask my followers to reblog, and hopefully they’ll ask their followers to reblog. Spread the word, guys. I’ve seen the wonderful generosity of some people on this site in action, and I’m begging you all to spread the word and donate if you can.Thank you!strangeantisocialdaydreamer<3 you’re awesome.
Here are reasons you should be watching Outlander:

5. great platonic female friendships
6. scenery porn
7. “is there ever a good reason from rape?” is an actual quote that the actual main character says and it’s amazing
8. the Scottish accents
9. the Scottish accents
10. aaaand the Scottish accents
I’ve noted before that Outlander avoids making a damsel of Claire. Sure, she’s constantly in danger and often bailed out by men, but the sticky situations she finds herself in aren’t the result of stupidity or naiveté. Claire’s fiercely smart, but above all else, she’s confident. It’s a quality not usually afforded to female characters, who get to sometimes be intelligent and good at what they do, but never too loud about it. Arrogance is associated with normative constructions of masculinity; most of the MacKenzie’s bafflement at Claire stems not just from the fact that she’s brazen, but that she’s a brazen woman. So yes, Claire gets a little too self-assured sometimes. She doesn’t hold her tongue and she sometimes forgets where—and when—she is, letting forth the unfiltered thoughts of the 20th-century woman we met in the pilot, and those thoughts get her into trouble. She’s no damsel; she’s like the proud, fearless knight of storybooks.
