Instead of celebrating thanksgiving why not celebrate the autumnal equinox on September 22nd?
Far better to celebrate the changing of the seasons and it’s bounty than celebrating the slaughter of Native Americans.
North Carolina mother Amy Redwine sent educators a message and taught her daughter to stand up for herself.
I honestly don’t get why when you say to someone “that’s not helping” they don’t listen??? and get offended even?? how did my problems become about you and your inability to listen?? and then they continue to do the shit that you said isn’t helping??
I think people expect you to welcome their form of support and get hurt when it’s not what works for you. For whatever reason they will put their ego before your feelings. Sometimes it’s better to just directly tell people what helps you and if they can’t respect that then just walk away from them if you can.
Why Declawing is a Bad Idea (An 1-minute guide)
One word for the humans: WHY!
Because humans are lazy, entitled jerks is why! As I always say, if you can’t handle and care for an animal 110% in their natural state YOU DON’T DESERVE TO OWN THEM.
Do not declaw your cats.
And don’t let your parents do it. Fight this—hard.
FIGHT ANYONE WHO HAS/WANTS TO DECLAW THEIR CAT(Unless you have anxiety which makes it extremely stressful or impossible to fight with people. That happens. But try your best to educate and advocate for these kitties!)
"While the majority of domestic violence victims are women, abuse of men happens far more often than you’d probably expect. Typically, men are physically stronger than women but that doesn’t necessarily make it easier to escape the violence or the relationship. An abused man faces a shortage of resources, skepticism from police, and major legal obstacles, especially when it comes to gaining custody of his children from an abusive mother. No matter your age, occupation, or sexual orientation, though, you can overcome these challenges and escape the abuse.
Abused men can also reach out to the following organizations for help:
- U.S. and Canada: () The Domestic Abuse Helpline
- UK: ManKind Initiative
- Australia: One in Three Campaign offers a number of crisis hotlines”

Oh and may it also be noted that Men are now the majority of domestic violence victims, according to the CDC. [x]

I couldnt find any fundraisers for male victims of domestic abuse but I found plenty telling men they can stop it. If you know of anything people can donate to to help men, please put a link so others can help. Thank you.
Men DO have so much privilege but that does not suggest they never face hardships or deal with bias based on their sex/gender.
We make assumptions about how both men and women should be in our society which damages us all.
Here are some actual facts from the CDC:
Most female and male victims of rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner (69% of female victims; 53% of male victims) experienced some form of intimate partner violence for the first time before 25 years of age.
More than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.
Nearly 1 in 10 women in the United States (9.4%) has been raped by an intimate partner in her lifetime, and an estimated 16.9% of women and 8.0% of men have experienced sexual violence other than rape by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime.
About 1 in 4 women (24.3%) and 1 in 7 men (13.8%) have experienced severe physical violence by an intimate partner (e.g., hit with a fist or something hard, beaten, slammed against something) at some point in their lifetime
Among victims of intimate partner violence, more than 1 in 3 women experienced multiple forms of rape, stalking, or physical violence; 92.1% of male victims experienced physical violence alone, and 6.3% experienced physical violence and stalking
Men are not the majority of domestic violence victims.
They do however face domestic violence alone 92.1% of the time. Men should have access to help and support when they face domestic violence and any actual feminist would agree with that.
I’d also like to point out that it’s transphobic as hell to suggest only men have penises or that you must have a penis to be a man.
Apparently, for all those carnists who insist that meat consumption is what led to humans having bigger brains, you’re all missing a vital piece of information. It wasn’t the consumption of animals that led to our brain size or development, it was simply cooking. Cooked food is…
Prison isn’t always a tangible place with bars and concrete, sometimes it is a place constructed within our minds.
We are not always aware of this confinement because it’s been with us since birth.
The constraints of our upbringing that draws lines between right and wrong, good and bad.
This world feeds us lies that we so hungrily eat up because they are easier to digest then the truth.
