  • Capitalist 1: Hey, it's Pride month, should we do anything to support queer people?
  • Capitalist 2: I heard there's a shelter for queer and trans kids who got kicked out that's going to be closing soon due to lack of funding?
  • Capitalist 1: I was thinking more along the lines of an ad campaign where we just put our logo in rainbow colors.
  • Capitalist 2: That's a much better idea

When men say that they “love to see the woman underneath the makeup,” they’re not saying they want to see your leg stubble and greasy bangs—they’re saying they want you to be better at hiding your maintenance routine. Because the maintenance spoils the fantasy.

my feminist goal is not to convince men that girls are of value, my feminist goal is to achieve a future where the judgement of our value isn’t in the hands of men.

President Barack Obama: “I can not imagine the pain of the mothers of young Israelis killed.”
1518 Palestinian children killed by Israeli occupation forces since 2000, an average of one child killed every three days, and not a tear or a comment of any U.S. president

Marriage

Historically, marriage was a contract between a woman’s father and a woman’s husband. It was the transfer of ownership of a woman from the father to the husband.

Please explain where the romance in this is too me????

Not just for those in Detroit, but anywhere where the right to water is being restricted or denied!

hey everyone, this post has only gotten a thousand or so notes and only a single follower of mine has reblogged this from me specifically.

Detroit has been shutting water off for entire neighborhoods regardless of whether people paid bills or not. Even if they didn’t, should that really mean that they should die of thirst? Should there really be a cost to stay alive?

Please, spread this. Link it on other sites so someone down the line who needs this anywhere can take back water, something that should be the right of every human being.

So I am in the midst of planning our Camping Trip - that is the camping trip of my brothers and I’s chosen family, some of our dearest friends.

It is also summer and I have been smelling lilacs in my neighbourhood.

I begin full time employment in my field in a week and a half. I actually have most weekends off now. Shit is this what being a grown up is all about?

I have been underemployed since June 26, 2014. I am starting to sense a pattern around this time of year - but I can feel my anxiety rising and my body’s will to get out of bed depleting.

What do all of these things have in common?

Firstly, I think not being occupied / busy is triggering my anxiety and depression. I knew that when my social life / financial life was in the shitter, my anxiety and depression kick in to varying degrees. The first few days of not working full time were wonderful, a little stay-cation if you will.

But by about day 4, I was struggling to get out of bed. Everything was making me want to cry. I was stifling sobs at the more minor things. I was feeling like a basket case. I am feeling disconnected from a lot of what is super important to me, and not necessarily because it is not in my life right now, but I can connect to it physically, emotionally or intellectually.

Then I remembered what a coworker said to me after my last visit home …
She asked me how my visit was and I struggled to find the right response - I wasn’t relaxed, I wasn’t well rested, I barely saw my parents, and I didn’t get to visit with family / friends as much as I had hoped, and yet I felt great upon my return to the city. She stated so perfectly, “you feel grounded. Being home grounds you.” That was it. I felt grounded.

I am struggling to find that thing that grounds me here in Toronto.

However, one thing that brings me a sense of peace, for a brief moment, the smell of lilacs. It brings me back to my childhood - I remember being on the corner or King Hiram and Mutual and there was a huge lilac bush. It smelled lovely. It also had paths running through it, which seemed adventurous, mysterious, and endless.  

I have been considering that perhaps what I really need to feel more grounded is more family time.

With this full time gig I will have 3 day weekends every 3 weeks. This means, hypothetically, I can spend more time at home. Maybe I need to invest in some lilac essential oils …

Moral of this story: I have found ways to cope with my anxiety and depression (outside of alcohol) and they work. But I recognize that it is a constant evaluation of what is working and what else I can do to manage my feelings and live my life while living with anxiety and depression…
