She's Completely Mad

Vetches and passion flowers have modified some of their leaves and converted them into tendrils. These grope around in space until they touch the stem of another plant and swiftly coil around it. The tendrils then coil and pull the plant up towards the sunlight.

Toying around with ideas for a T-shirt for my daughter.  The official Disney princess shirts for little girls irk me slightly.  I can deal with how they’re fluorescent pink and sparkly but not with how the princesses on shirts are always either limited to 1-5 of them or they’re stuffed in so that some are hidden behind others.  Not to mention they are always depicted in their fancy ballgowns and their superficial beauty and wealth is glamorised (like the world’s not bombarding little girls enough with that crap already -although I have to give exception here to Merida and of course Pocahontas who doesn’t have a fancy dress as such but then she’s usually stuffed to the back line in group images or left out altogether so meh) while other more valuable princess traits like kindness, perseverance, courage, generosity, thirst for knowledge etc. are for the most part ignored.

And they let ALL of the seasonal workers go and I pretty much had to work the entire half of the store (apparel, shoes, and jewelry) counter by myself that day.

I wasn’t angry.

I was in shock.

We got to check the schedule and who all was working that day in the front of the store and I saw that…

Does anyone else on here battle with eczema? I had it really bad as a child and finally kicked it’s butt after puberty. Now there’s a tiny spot on my back and chin and I’m freaking the fuck out. I can’t go back to my ugly duckling phase. Any skin care gurus have tips?

Genuine equality means not treating everyone the same, but attending equally to everyone’s different needs.

Eagleton, Terry, Why Marx Was Right (Yale University Press, 2011) p.5 (via fuckyeahdialectics)

And this is why I get pissed off when.. I talk about equality, and someone says “YOU WANT EVERYONE TO BE THE SAME”.  No, that’s not how it works, and I’m sick of explaining it.

It’s Really fucking disgusting that we need this in our society but this is vital spread.

African-American children with autism are being diagnosed almost two years later than children of any other ethnic group [in the United States], holding up their treatment, and in turn, their quality of life, according to research.

When white children were misdiagnosed with autism they were usually told they had ADHD, but Mandell discovered that Black autistic children were told they had things like psychoses, mental retardation or selective mutism. This, along with the fear that Black parents have of reporting their child’s behavioral issues due to the fact that their children are removed from the home as a result more often, makes it hard for Black children with autism to get the treatment that they need.

my first diagnosis was a psychotic disorder btw

But lets keep pretending doctors know everything and never fuck up or hold prejudices that make the diagnoses they give wrong.

This happened to my brother and noooow I know why. Nobody even tried until he was twelve and then they kept trying to diagnose him as pre-psychotic and my mom was like “no” and then they just put him in special needs for a year because THAT’S PROBABLY WHAT HE NEEDS even though he’d already been diagnosed with Asperger’s.

1. Have a colorblind mentality

2. Gotta have a lot of friends in which you allow them to treat you like their “token” black friend

3. Must think We Can’t Stop is an awesome song

4. Swear you’re the only black girl who thinks twerking is “ratchet”

5. Swear you’re the only black…
