My friend had a guy sitting way too close to her on the bus and he was trying to read her text messages, so we damn well gave him something to read.

It is literally cheaper to house homeless people than it is to just leave them on the streets

And instead of trying to match homeless people up with one of the 24 empty homes available for every homeless person

People are literally paying to put in fucking spikes under bridges, in doorways and, yes, on fucking public benches in order to make it harder for homeless people to find a place to sleep.

What a fucked up world we live in.

or why don’t they get a job and sober up instead of relying on non-homeless people for their main income source. them getting a job is definitely cheaper than housing them, and them continuing to stay there because they’re lazy and don’t want to do anything with their lives. now that’s an idea. and next time, don’t link people to some random-ass tumblr blog. i want real news sources (ex: NBC, Huff Post, Fox News, MSNBC, etc…)

god damn fucking five year olds without homes…man…fuck em! why can’t they lay off the booze and just get a job!! everyone can afford a house if they just get a job, right? because the average living wage is enough to pay for a house, right? and why would anyone want to house the homeless!? god, those homeless fuckers really should just get rid of their mental illnesses (without therapy) and their addictions (without rehab) and get a job (without assistance)! clearly they just want to be homeless because being homeless is so much fun and everyone treats you so well.

what are real news sources!? what’s using google instead of being an ignorant mouthy little punk on tumblr!? god damn, using the internet is so fucking hard for people like me!! (I FUCKING LOVE THAT HUFF POST ACTUALLY FUCKING PUBLISHED AN ARTICLE TALKING ABOUT THIS SHIT.)

really though shut the fuck up forever

How Old was Who?Isn’t this cool - a chart that tells you how old each actor was when they played the doctor & how old they are now (or when they died) (x)

Excuse me, have you not heard the audios, I think you mean

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:    Stay with us and keep calm.The last thing we need when we’re panicking, is to have someone else panicking with us.
Offer medicine if we usually take it during an attack.You might have to ask whether or not we take medicine- heck, some might not; but please, ask. It really helps.
Move us to a quiet place.We need time to think, to breathe. Being surrounded by people isn’t going to help.
Don’t make assumptions about what we need. Ask.We’ll tell you what we need. Sometimes; you may have to ask- but never assume.
Speak to us in short, simple sentences.
Be predictable. Avoid surprises.
Help slow our breathing by breathing us or by counting slowly to 10.As odd as it sounds, it works.


                                                                                                                 


WHAT YOU SHOULDN’T DO:1. Say, “You have nothing to be panicked about.”We know. We know. We know. And because we know we have nothing to be panicked about, we panic even more. When I realize that my anxiety is unfounded, I panic even more because then I feel like I’m not in touch with reality. It’s unsettling. Scary.Most of the time, a panic attack is irrational. Sometimes they stem from circumstances — a certain couch triggers a bad memory or being on an airplane makes you claustrophobic or a break up causes you to flip your lid — but mostly, the reasons I’m panicking are complex, hard to articulate or simply, unknown. I could tell myself all day that I have no reason to be having a panic attack and I would still be panicking. Sometimes, because I’m a perfectionist, I become even more overwhelmed when I think my behaviour is “unacceptable” (as I often believe it is when I’m panicking). I know it’s all in my mind, but my mind can be a pretty dark and scary place when it gets going.Alternate suggestion: Say, “I understand you’re upset. It is okay. You have a right to be upset and I am here to help.”2. Say, “Calm down.”This reminds me of a MadTV sketch where Bob Newhart plays a therapist who tells his patients to simply “Stop it!” whenever they express anxiety or fear. As a sketch, it’s funny. In real life, it’s one of the worst things you can do to someone having a panic attack. When someone tells me to “stop panicking” or to “calm down,” I just think, “Oh, okay. I haven’t tried that one. Hold on, let me get out a pen and paper and jot that down, you jerk.”Instead of taking action so that they do relax, simply telling a panicking person to “calm down” or “stop it” does nothing. No-thing.Alternate suggestion: The best thing to do is to listen and support. In order to calm them down without the generalities, counting helps.3. Say, “I’m just going to leave you alone for a minute.”Being left alone while panicking makes my heart race even harder. The last thing I want is to be left by myself with my troubled brain. Many of my panic attacks spark from over-thinking and it’s helpful to have another person with me, not only for medical reasons (in case I pass out or need water) but also it’s helpful to have another person around to force me to think about something other than the noise in my head.Alternate suggestion: It sometimes helps me if the person I’m with distracts me by telling me a story or sings to me. I need to get out of my own head and think about something other than my own panic.4. Say, “You’re overreacting.”Here’s the thing: I’m not. Panic attacks might be in my head, but I’m in actual physical pain. If you’d cut open your leg, no one would be telling you you’re overreacting. It’s a common trope in mental health to diminish the feelings or experience of someone suffering from anxiety or panic because there’s no visible physical ailment and because there’s no discernible reason for the person to be having such a strong fear reaction.The worst thing you can tell someone who is panicking is that they are overreacting.Alternate suggestion: Treat a panic attack like any other medical emergency. Listen to what the person is telling you. Get them water if they need it. It helps me if someone rubs my back a little. If you’re in over your head, don’t hesitate to call 911 (or whatever the emergency services number is where you are). But please, take the person seriously. Mental health deserves the same respect as physical health.

This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present: “Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.

TOP 10 UNDER APPRECIATED DOCTOR/ROSE MOMENTS
      ↳  9. ‘utopia’

this may not initially look like a scene for a doctor/rose shipper, but if you look deep enough it is easy to see.  it’s a big difference from when jack and the doctor are talking about rose at the beginning of the episode.  in this scene the conversation goes straight to jack’s immortality which obviously leads to rose.  the doctor obviously does not like to think of rose because whenever he does, his face is struck with an expression of complete heartbreak, especially when jack says he’s sorry; you can see in the doctor’s eyes that he just wants to get away from this conversation quickly because it hurts to think about her.

This is a HUGE scene for all characters involved:

  • Jack learns about how he became immortal and what really happened to Rose
  • Martha learns that Rose isn’t just some ex-girlfriend who dumped the Doctor and left him heartbroken, and her face when she realizes that he truly lost the woman he loves is just… Freema, you shipper you, ILU.
  • It’s the first time that the Doctor really talks about what happened to Rose. He talks to Jack about her because Jack knew her, Jack loves her too and Jack knows how much she means to the Doctor. 

Ugh this scene is another EXCELLENT scene in a perfect episode.
