    Police shoot teenage special-needs girl within 20 seconds of arriving to ‘help’

    On June 3rd, 2014, the Serrano family was having difficulty with a young female family member who suffers from a mental illness and depression. Yanira Serrano-Garcia, 18, had apparently gone off of her medication and became agitated and hard to control.

    “[Yanira] wanted to be normal. She wanted to stop taking her medication, and I get it. Sometimes when my feet hurt I just want to be normal. I don’t want to take pills. I get her…all we want is justice,” said a friend of Yanira’s during a community march. 

    “Sadly, they mistook her for something she didn’t do, and a cop decided to get his gun out when he could have gotten out his taser, his pepper spray,” she said.

    “She has special needs and we just want answers,” said Yanira’s brother, Tiny Serrano. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”

    I feel like I reblog this kind of stuff every single day… Same story, different names. And police always use the same fucking excuses because they’re trained in how to loophole the law.

    Sending a big “FU” to the corporate side of the fashion industry.

    As an increasingly successful fashion blogger, I have been targeted by several brands, large & small, one of which is quite a large corporation.
    Why?
    Because I am undermining a very important part of their money making system.

    Today, the fashion industry is split in half.
    You have Women’s fashion & Men’s fashion.
    You will find designers here and there who produce androgynous designs but for the most part, the industry (brands & corporate companies) want designers who either design Men’s wear or Women’s wear, and follow a very gendered structure. Everything from the tailoring to the materials has to be specific to the binary boy/girl gender system.
    This is why you can’t find feminine style’s of clothing tailored for the average males body type in any department store, thus creating a “mens” & “women’s” division.

    Every time I modify the clothing I buy in department stores to fit my body type and then model it for people to see, not only am I inspiring people to step out of the box with their fashion choices, but I am merging two markets into one.
    Why is this bad for corporations?
    MONEY
    More markets equal more advertising and marketing opportunities which ultimately leads to more sales and more profit.

    When I successfully inspire people to be less mindful about if they look like a girl or a boy, ultimately I am inspiring them to go against the gendered market system that brands and clothing companies make so much money off of.

    I have received several hateful emails, discouraging my efforts as a fashion blogger. I was even asked by a large corporate clothing company to STOP buying their clothing and modifying it to fit my body type. They stated that by doing so, and sharing it with my audience that I was creating the illusion that gender did not exist, and that I am leading a bad example for society. …

    A GENDERED SOCIETY CREATES A HUGE PROBLEM.
    IT DIVIDES PEOPLE.

    IT SEPERATES.
    IT CONTROLS.
    IT DISOLVES ANY & ALL ORIGINALITY.

    FUCK YOU, to any clothing brand, company & corporation who’s got a problem with who I am, what I believe in & how I express myself.

    -Elliott Alexzander

    This is just so important! Gendered clothing is such bullshit and I want more people to realize!!!

    do you ever stop to think what it would be like if the dursleys were nice to harry? what if their reason for hating magic wasn’t simply that it was magic and they were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much but that it…

    riots are breaking out in glasgow right now, scottish flags are being burned, people are making nazi salutes, there is racism and sectarianism and god knows what else, there are supposed stabbings, people are being beaten up purely for voting Yes, but the bbc has decided that a news story more worthy of being reported is the first iphone 6 owner dropping his new phone. the anti-scottish bias from the bbc is reaching new levels of absurdity

  7. Anonymous said: Do you have any advice for women sort of "reading" male doms to tell which ones are trouble? Or just reading guys in general now that I think about it. Like any advice about early warning signs that a guy is dangerous? An older woman I know always said any guy that tries to give you stuff really early on he's looking for you to "owe" him and should be kept an eye on. I just ask because you seem like you're a really good judge of character and when a guy isn't on the up and up.

    uhhh off the top of my head

    • Phallic centered, 100+ photos of his dick, mentions his dick, his dominance comes from his dick, he thinks he can ‘fix’ you with his dick, keeps sending photos of his dick, mentions his dick more then he mentions anything else 
    • Thinks your submissiveness is because you’re a woman, and therefore ‘natural’ so any forced sex or abuse is simply him putting you in your ‘natural’ place 
    • Has no hobbies or other interests, and doesn’t care about yours 
    • Demanding and impatient 
    • He’s simple, he just want to fuck you, he just want to feel important, he reeks of insecurity and is desperate, he needs you to act like he’s a king and a god, he needs his cock worshipped, he doesn’t care about your needs, he is stuck in this frantic, desperate need to stop the thoughts of worthlessness and rejection and he will force this on you because he is like a scared rabid animal stuck the corner, scared of more rejection, so he won’t hear it. 
    • Can’t just be a normal, interesting, person 
    • Back tracks and passive aggressive, he mentions something you don’t like and says something like ‘well I’m the dom and you’re just a sub-’ ‘haha, don’t take it so seriously-’ ‘you’ll like it ;), you’ll let me do what I want,’ ‘Well my last sub was a real sub, I guess you’re just a fake-‘ 
    • Expects things you’re not comfortable with, demands them, calls you ‘crazy’ and ‘typical’ 
    • Believes you owe him anything, no, you owe him nothing
    • Doesn’t fulfill his promises, but keeps promising, and the promises become more and more extravagant.
    • Brings up old subs a lot and compares you
    • Lots of compliments but very little action
    • He expects you to fit him completely, his opinions are your opinions, you have to believe what he believes, you have to like what he likes
    • Automatically assumes you are of lesser intellect and doesn’t listen to any of your opinions, ideals, and laughs off anything you say that doesn’t go with what he believes
    • Isn’t upfront with what he likes, expects, and who he is. Charming at first, but then demanding, insecure, and needs a constant ego boost from you.    
    • Calls all his past subs ‘crazy’ 
    • Isn’t sympathetic or empathic 
    • Doesn’t treat you like you’re an individual, surprised when you like things aren’t typical to your type, and ignores specific things that you like and goes with ‘well, all women like this-‘ 
    • Arguments become personal, debating turns into insulting, he refuses to respect your personal views 
    • His ambition is to one day, actually have ambition 
    • Believes that regardless, he’s better than you because you are a woman and he is a man 
    • Around friends he takes the side of his friends regardless of the situation and seems to be ‘beta’ around the ‘alpha’ male in the group 
    • Treats you like a trophy, always mentions appearance, or sexual prowess, but never mentions anything else you’ve accomplished 
    • rolls his eyes at anything ‘feminine’ and instantly sees it as vapid and a waste of time 
    • expects you to baby him, even as a dom, acts like your his mother in terms of care and coddling 
    • Catch him lying and he isn’t upfront about it but dances around the topic in hopes you’ll shut up about it 
    • Speaks badly of past ex’s, consistently 
    • threatens you in anyway, even if he laughs it off later 
    • thinks all men naturally have a highly sexual appetite and therefore are entitled to sex constantly, also thinks that view forgives his cheating because ‘he’s just a man,’ 
    • Any physical change that happens to you (loss of weight, hair cut) he feels entitled too and gets upset when you change you’re own body without his approval first 
    • Wants you to fit his ‘ideal’ woman even if it’s nothing like who you really are 
    • has too many fantasies about women that are all sexual with the women as props
    • has no real female friends 
    • doesn’t trust your male friends with no reason other than they are male 

    uhh… this is really long now, so yeah, these are some ways to tell if a dom or a man is shit 

    This really shook me to my core.

    Sounds veeeeeeeery familiar.

    This list applies well outside of D/s circles. And with some tweaking could be made gender-neutral enough to cover warning signs for just about any kind of relationship.

    But the next question is… how does this dude change? How does he turn himself around? Is there not hope for this level of asshole?

    No hope, none, and no one should try and change a person like this, waste of time and energy, spend your time enjoy someone whose isn’t abusive rather than walking on egg shells trying to fix someone who is 

    Oh god this is so familiar I want to shove this in the faces of every new sub following me

    I literally just went from aw to wtf.

    NO BUT THIS IS WHY I LOVE LAIKA THO,

    there was this big uproar over a character from paranorman being gay, so what do they do? next movie, they make a commercial that THROWS THE GAY IN YOUR FACE. They’re literally not being subtle at all about their queer representation and I fucking love them for it

    Throw the gay in your face is perhaps the best thing I’ve heard all week.

    important for any artist

    Like this is legitimately interesting and I’m not trying to make a point but honestly curious- why do artists apparently draw women as male torsos + breasts??0

    because apart from amount of breast tissue, all humans have the same chest anatomy. If you ever have the opportunity to look at cadavers, without skin and fat we’re all basically identical.

    …. Well till you strip that muscle away and look at the bones. Bone can tell you a lot about a person.
