It’s cool to see a post that isn’t ‘don’t hurt yourself in the first place!!’ but is actually giving you geniune, helpful advice for recovery and caring for yourself
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.
So… someone made a Skyrim mod where all the dragons are replaced with Thomas the Tank Engine characters and it’s the funniest fucking thing I have ever seen. (Watch the video, you won’t regret it.)

I volunteered at the Salvation Army center around here a couple years ago, helping families pick out toys. It was really fun and I thought I was doing a good thing until two men came in. They were in poor shape, they wore a lot of layers and their jackets and pants had dirt and dust on them. I think they had been sleeping outside. They were coming in to get food from the kitchen, and one of the staff members took them to another room that wasn’t the kitchen. After a while, they were both escorted out of the building. I learned later that day they were kicked out because the staff speculated they were a gay couple and didn’t want to cater to those kind of people.
I can’t even look at the bellringers without being ashamed of them. They help a lot of people, but I don’t want to contribute to a group that still considers homosexuality to be condemnatory.
Especially around the Holidays…

oops i gave them i dime today. fack.
- calling the legitimate anger of oppressed people “drama” or “hate”
- referring to allocation of human rights as simply “politics”
- referring to basic human empathy as “political correctness”
- the childlike refusal to admit mistakes and throwing a literal tantrum
- "it’s just my opinion"
my stepdad bought me this hat when i was like 13
i forgot about this hat
Unfortunately it’s children that are usually the victims of “faith healing.” That’s not natural selection, it’s child abuse, and it’s legally protected as a religious exemption to medical care in most states.
Let me repeat that: There are religious exemptions to laws that prevent abuse and neglect of dependent persons.
CHILD, Inc (website here), founded by Rita Swan, has been working on removing religious exemptions for 30 years. This year, the American Academy of Pediatrics has finally called for a repeal of the exemptions. The National Association of Medical Examiners, the National District Attorneys Association, Prevent Child Abuse America and the American Medical Association have all publicly called for a repeal as well. There are only a few states that have done so.
I get that Ricky Gervais makes a living being borderline offensive and I understand why people are reblogging this and laughing. But children dying painful and often drawn-out deaths from completely curable illnesses isn’t funny. And supporting “prayer healing,” even as a joke, just creates more child victims. ~JJ
