I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.
Leslie Morgan Steiner was in an abusive relationship, though at first she didn’t realize it. In a talk at TEDxRainier, she tells the disturbing story of her relationship, correcting misconceptions many people hold about victims of domestic violence, and explaining how we can all help break the silence.
If you or someone you know is facing domestic violence or an absuive relationship, you can find a list of resources here. The U.S. National Sexual Assault Hotline is 1-800-656-4673 (HOPE), and RAINN offers a secure online hotline.
All that is missing is a Z snap of fabulous ownage.

My (male) friend was recently raped and nearly everyone he knew either said it was his fault or he wasn’t actually raped. I can’t convince him that not all people think like this. Please reblog if you know that men can be raped just like women.
maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan the notes on this are sad…
Mental health problems are, y’know, health problems. Treat them the same way, or shut up.
Look up at the stars: the 2013 Geminid meteor shower will peak on the nights of December 12-14.
The show starts at mid-to-late evening and ends at dawn. No matter your location, Geminid meteors will fall most plenty after midnight on December 13 and 14. (More information)
These gifs are of the last year’s Geminid meteor shower, here's the full video.
For therapy I had to make images that would remind me that I could feel good about myself as I healed and I couldn’t think of a better icon than Sailor Moon. So I give you…Self-Positive Sailor Moon.
