LGBT Drug anon - Oh I totally agree, this rabbit hole goes much deeper than you might first expect. I myself am coming from a UK perspective so what I might have to say might not directly link to stuff in the US, but bear with me. Currently in the UK almost 33% of gay men are currently drug users, over 20% of lesbian/bi women as well, compared 10% for straight men(even less for women) and you sort of see where the concern comes from. The trans community so far hasnt actually come up :/ (1/2)

(Sorry I didn’t receive the second part, and maybe the second part would’ve answered this, but what are the programs to help with substance abuse in the LGBT community like in the UK? We could compare the programs of the U.K.’s with U.S. It’s actually good we’re coming from two perspectives so we see this is a problem happening in more than one place.)

How to garden for bumblebees
Creating a bumblebee-friendly garden will help the struggling pollinators and be a boon for your blooms as well.

Not all feminists are crazy and bad. I'm a docile feminist. I just want equal rights for everybody.

Your problem isn’t with me it’s with the entire part of your movement that speaks for you and makes you look crazy. Go stand up to them I don’t give a shit what you tell me. Honestly people at this point your problem is with your own stupid movement not anti-feminists or egalitarians.

Exactly. Please own up to the bad people in your movement. Don’t say “well I’m not like that so….”

I think the best thing is to say “Not everyone is like that. However, we recognize that some people ARE like that. Because this is our group/movement/whatever, we need to take responsibility for their actions and correct them because God knows they aren’t going to correct themselves”.

Or something like that. Own up to the “bad” people. Tell them they’re wrong. Correct their actions.

Do something other than say “well they’re not what a -blank- is SUPPOSED to be like, so they’re not a real -blank-” Yes they are. If they won’t take responsibility for making a muck out of something that’s important to you, you’re going to have to do it.

This applies to everyone

At this point we know that not everyone is like that.

Now take the next step and correct those who are like that.

Breaking via ABC News: UN Human Rights Council votes to open inquiry into alleged war crimes in Gaza; U.S. is the ONLY “no” vote.

That’s because the U.S. is a direct accomplice to every war crime that Israel commits.

USA, the world’s #1 killing machine.

White American Brutally Assaults Korean Man in a Hate Crime

Shoreline, Washington, USA —

A Korean man, Jae Kang Lee, was beaten and dragged into busy Ballinger Way in Shoreline on October 26. Police said the only motivation for the attack appeared to be the victim’s race.

They arrested Dion Packard of Arlington and charged him with malicious harassment and assault. Eyewitnesses said the beating was unprovoked. Michael Alford was pumping gas when he noticed the attack at a bus stop just 30 feet away.

He said Packard slammed Lee’s head into the bus stop pole and then the man collapsed and Packard started kicking him. The eyewitness said, “It became very scary, very quickly. He said Packard grabbed his victim around the neck and pulled him into Ballinger Way.

Alford said, "It looked to me like he was going to actually throw him into the oncoming traffic." Alford ran out onto the street, waved his arms and said “stop, stop.” Two other bystanders joined him to stop the beating and that’s when the attacker started to protest. According to Alford, he said, "Why are you helping him? Don’t you know this man’s Japanese? Don’t you know what we did for them in Vietnam?"

Personally I don’t see how it is, plenty of young love stories are framed much like close friends. People need to understand the difference between something like The Haunting which the character Catherine Zeta Jones plays is entirely baiting the 90s obsession with gay characters. And a simple love story that doesn’t need to write in bold letters GAY MAYBE in animation

Chibimoon

Well, I don’t know much about the plot of the story. If it’s not about a same sex couple, that’s fine because I still love a good story about the close friendship of two girls.

Have you ever come across a homeless individual and felt totally uncomfortable?
You see them and you know they are in need, but you are not sure what to do. You know that handing them money is not the best thing. But, you also see that they clearly have some needs. Their lips are chapped. They are hungry. They are thirsty. They are asking for help.
How can you help?
Here is a simple idea - blessing bags.

This was such an easy project. We are now going to keep a few “Blessing Bags” in our car so that when we do happen to see someone on the streets who is homeless, we can hand them a Blessing Bag. I first learned of these bags from my friend, Julie. I am using the picture of her bags (see above) because the ones we took were taken in horrible lighting and turned out really grainy and hard to see what is inside of them.

If you’d like to make your own Blessing Bags, this is what you would need:
Gallon size Ziplock bags
items to go in the bags, such as:
chap stick
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
comb
soap
trail mix
granola bars
crackers
pack of gum
band aids
mouthwash
coins (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)
hand wipes
you could also put in a warm pair of socks, and maybe a Starbucks gift card
Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.
This would be a great activity to do with some other families. Each family could bring one of the items going into the bags (ex: toothbrushes). Set up all the items around a table and walk around it with the ziplocks and fill the bags.

oh man i wanna do this

mee tooo. im bout to go to the dollar tree and rack up or a wholesale store.

All these reblogs make me so happy to see. So many amazing people on tumblr

random acts if kindness

please include a couple pairs of socks actually! Socks are among the most highly desired clothing item for homeless individuals

Id suggest putting in some Neosporin or even just some generic antiseptic.  If someone gets njured and can’t clean the would right away Neopsporin can help keep an infection at bay.
