REALLY just wanna take this chance to remind the people who follow me to not kill/trap opossums if they’re in your yard, and do not call animal control! Seriously.

  1. Opossums are literally 100% BIOLOGICALLY INCAPABLE of carrying rabies. Their body temperature is too cool to incubate it properly.
  2. Opossums are actually quite gentle and NOCTURNAL, so if they’re roaming, they’ve probably gotten lost, been injured, and are looking for a place to hide.
  3. Young opossums tend to try to climb into garbage cans when they’re starving. This is because THEY ARE LITERALLY STARVING. Don’t fucking shoot them or hit them with things because you wanna be some fucking macho top-of-the-food-chain cocksucker.
  4. Mama possums are amazing mothers and if you encounter an “aggressive” opossum, it’s probably because she’s got babies hanging off her nipple and she’s freaking out. They’re clumsy. Sometimes they don’t hear you coming and  you catch each other off guard.
  5. Wanna lure an opossum off of your property? You can set up a box with some greens and cat kibble in it, hide it well, and lure them out that way. They’re actually quite harmless and keep other predators away. they eat lotsa gross stuff.
  6. Opossum mamas who get hit by cars often still have their helpless babies attached to them. Possums get a bad rep and people say they are “the dumbest animal”, but they are incredible creatures who have been around since the days of fucking dinosaurs so treat them well, okay?

Aww!!!

Laverne Cox Is The Woman We’ve Been Waiting For

Obama Just Took One Big Step Towards Ending the War on Drugs

U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to pardon “hundreds, perhaps thousands” of federal drug inmates before leaving office. That number might not seem so big. But it’s historic in executive terms. In fact, reports indicate that the potential number will be well above the norm for an outgoing president and may even approach levels not seen since President Gerald Ford gave mass clemency to draft dodgers after the Vietnam War.

Laverne Cox should play Wonder Woman

Or a woman should play Wonder Woman

Step 1: Log off tumblr
Step 2: Realize…

They made a reality show about mocking women who don’t perform femininity, forcing them to perform femininity, making them cry and calling them ugly etc. a male telling women how to “be women” is misogyny.

””I’m so not interested in telling a woman this is how you have to be to be a woman,” said Cox. “It’s about helping her find her own voice, to be the kind of woman she knows she wants to be. It’s about us helping them to listen to themselves.”

The women who write to VH1 with their style emergencies have no idea that three transgender women will be coming to their rescue. But Poon said all the reactions have been good.” (Source)

She literally said it isn’t about telling women how to be, but giving them confidence and a voice. (Wow, a feminist ideal perhaps?)

The women write to VH1 for help. These women were not forced there to be made over. They asked for it! 

Also, Cox is a woman and calling her “they” is just a really garbage thing to do because you aren’t recognizing that she is a woman.

"Clayton said the responses that move her are the ones like a recent e-mail from a woman recovering from a brain tumor. She wrote how much she loved the show and admired the stars’ confidence. After watching an episode, she finally got up the courage to go out in public showing off the scar the tumor had left behind."

I’m throwing that in there also just because it’s a fucking nice thing that this show did. 

Personally I’m not a fan of makeover shows, but at least it’s better than What Not to Wear because at least the women in TRANSform Me are doing this of their own volition and not being made to do it by their friends and family.

There is nothing empowering about dressing like a drag queen and praising the institution of femininity

So dressing feminine is wrong?

And how can you decide what is and what isn’t empowering for other women? Do you speak for all women?

You must be new here, I don’t have time for this

Wow, real convincing argument. You have made me seen the light. I now want to deny people their identity!

URGH okay I know this is probably one hell of a long shot but I have 600 of you following me and I know a decent handful are in my area.

ANYWAY

This is my best friend nikkiplz's cat, he went missing about two weeks ago and it's heartbreaking because he's an absolutely beautiful little guy, you can't miss a tail like that for miles. He's not very old (about 8/9 months?) and he's not fixed yet.

He’s from the South East Queensland area on the Gold Coast.

Like I said, this may be a long shot but if on the off chance any of you have seen him PLEASE send either of us a msg, we really want him to come home :c

So do me a favour and share this around please ❤️

if you get a group of at least five people between their late teens and early/middish twenties and have one of them quote spongebob squarepants i swear to god they can kill half an hour at minimum just quoting random and often unrelated spongebob snippets back and forth at each other nigh verbatim without any other conversation, this is basically science

Hey friends! If you’ve been following me since February I am very sorry to annoy you with yet another post about my ex boyfriend Steve, shavingryansprivates, regarding his awful behavior towards others.

A few months ago I spoke openly about how he sexually assaulted me while we were together sometime in December or January. After publicly speaking about his mistreatment towards me, 3 girls messaged me sharing their experiences with him. Amid exposing male bloggers for their predatory behavior recently, 4 more have come forward to tell me about their experiences with him.

So I’m compiling this post so his other victims can share their stories and have their voices heard. Just so everyone knows, it’s a very long post.

Warning: there are mentions of #sexual assault, #emotional abuse, and #predatory behavior so please exercise caution if you continue to read.
