    idk who needs to hear this but “depressing quotes” blogs and stuff like this may express how you’re feeling but seeing a constant stream of negativity and romanticised sadness is only going to make you feel worse. Even if you only unfollow one blog and follow a puppy blog instead, you’ll feel a little better

    There is a fine line between acknowledging and accepting your feelings, and dwelling and living in them.

    people need to stop leaving intersex people out of conversations about reproductive justice. 

    intersex people are routinely sterilized at birth, and the choice of whether or not we want to have children is taken from us before we even can reach an age where we would be ready to make that choice. 

    intersex people and their families are lied to about surgeries that have no medical benefit, because doctors are so worried about making sure that they uphold the binary system and create people who look “normal” instead of preserving our right to consent to what happens to our bodies. 

    intersex people are often denied access to fertility treatment, or have many barriers to accessing infertility treatment because it is believed that we will not want to have children, or that we should not want to have children. 

    yet, intersex issues are rarely, if ever, brought up in the context of reproductive rights, despite the fact that bodily autonomy and reproductive justice is a huge issue for the intersex community. 

    if you’re fighting for reproductive justice, please consider fighting for our rights to choose as well.

    This includes putting a stop to people spouting bullshit that intersex people are all or mostly inherently sterile.

    Our variants aren’t what make us sterile in most cases, it’s the fucking doctors.

    Why did he do that?

    Because Obama created the pandemic response team. Anything obama started, he destroys. 

    He’s also cut the budget for the CDC every damn year for the past 3 years

    Do not let this be forgot that he not only fired the pandemic team in 2018, but he also most recently refused WHO's COVID-19 testing for Americans in fear that too many positive testing would diminish his chances at a reelection. (X)(X)

    Absolutely anything you’ve ever heard about an animal having “no purpose,” that wasps don’t pollinate or that nothing eats mosquitoes, is an outright lie from clickbait-quality “science reporting.” There isn’t any animal that doesn’t help to sustain some sort of life, and the more common an animal is such as flies or roaches or rodents the more of our ecosystem has grown to depend on them for millions of years.

    Me, wanting to buy something from a clothing company that pays living wages: god it’s so expensive It is not too expensive, it is fairly priced and I’m just not paid enough.

    Honestly I have a theory that a big reason why corporations hate the idea of higher wages is that their entire business model revolves around having the lowest prices, rather than the best product or service. If we get paid better, we can afford to make a choice.

    this actually isn’t just a theory, it’s an entire deliberate tactic, and if you major in business they literally spend multiple semester-long classes teaching you how to do it

    Harnaam Kaur first started growing facial hair at the age of 11. She was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome, a condition that causes a hormone imbalance in women. 

    “I decided to keep my beard and step forward against society’s expectations of what a woman should look like,” Kaur said. “Today I am happy living as a young beautiful bearded woman. I have realized that this body is mine, I own it, I do not have any other body to live in so I may as well love it unconditionally"

    This is a huge thing ESPECIALLY with kids. To the parent, they lashed out when they were mad and forgot about it, expecting the kid to forget too. To the kid? It was a big moment that defined your relationship with your parents. Stuff my parents don’t remember doing or saying were things that to me spoke very, very loudly, that I was not safe to be open and honest with my parents.

    The axe forgets, but the tree remembers, indeed.
