that we are underlings

im really tired of europeans on here reblogging posts about racism in america and adding shocked disapproving comments like “get it together america lol” as if there isn’t an enormous amount of racism in europe and as if it wasn’t the europeans that first colonized the new world that planted the seed of racism in north america

Personal post ahead:

Guys, these pictures are 2 and a half years apart. I wanted to show you (and remind myself) How much of a life change you can have in just that short amount of time. In the first picture, I was deeply entrenched in my eating disorder. I was unhealthy in my body and my mind. I was depressed and hurting and I knew I needed a change. In the second picture, I am healthy in my body, and far healthier in my mind.

I self-recovered, which I wouldn’t recommend. Only a few close friends knew about the full extent of my disordered eating, and I didn’t go to them as much as I should have. I put myself in a dangerous situation by not being honest with my doctor or therapist about my condition. But I did begin to recover.

I’ve had setbacks. I’ve gone back to bad habits now and then. But I will continue to fight, and I will continue to be victorious.

I am at a healthy weight now. A weight which would have sent me into a hysterical panic attack if I had thought about it 2 and a half years ago.

But before, I stayed in bed all day, because if I got up, I would get dizzy. And now I can work 8 and a half hour days on my feet and still have enough energy to dance in the evenings.

Before, I had about 4 foods I could eat without feeling completely terrified. And now I can eat everything, and it’s marvelous.

Before, I was so concerned about having space between my thighs. Now my things rub together, and look very nice in my short shorts.

Recovery is so painful, but it is also the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. I’ve found myself again, when I thought I was lost.




This girl was crying and begging the policeman not to hit her or any of her friends. Then the policeman started crying as well and he said to her: “You just hold on girl.”
The photo comes from protests happening in Bulgaria right now. Students are protesting poverty and corruption in Bulgaria’s Socialist-backed government, chaining themselves to the doors of Sofia University and clashing with police outside of parliament.
After the photo was taken it quickly went viral

this picture is so powerful

If a 16 year old would want to adopt a child no one would give it to her because she isn’t 21 yet or not an adult or maybe too irresponsible.

So if a 16 year old is so irresponsible and not an adult yet so she wouldn’t even be allowed to adopt a child, then why would the government force her to get that child even though she might not want it?

Let’s talk about how logical the bill against abortion is now
