UNSUBSCRIBE TOGETHER 

youtubespeaks:

The subscription counts for many of the accused YT abusers haven’t significantly changed since the allegations against them broke. By unsubscribing from their accounts, we decrease their power/reach and we send them the message that we will no longer support abusive behavior

BREAKING: Here’s the tweet that could lead to a new grand jury in Ferguson, MO. 
#Ferguson: @shaunking took screenshot of tweeter @thesusannichols who claims to know juror on #MikeBrown #DarrenWilson grand jury & appears to be receiving leaked information. King says that within seconds of posting this, her friends told her to delete it & she did but not before it was screenshotted. She has since deleted her entire account but King says they checked & she is indeed a #STL resident w/ years’ worth of tweets from there. “If true, her tweet not only reveals a leak in the grand jury, but gives us an ugly glimpse into how things have gone so far. This person who posted it on twitter & her contact on the grand jury must be fully & completely investigated & removed if it’s true.”-@shaunking

Y’all better reblog the fuck outta this post it on facebook, twitter, IG, myspace, friendster, everything get this information out

Yes, JSYK, this is what is coming on my blog in October. 

aimmyarrowshigh:

I’m going to arrange my queue so that it’s every-other post, but given that there are ~650 posts and only 31 days of Halloween (don’t fight me on this fact), my blog WILL be posting a lot.  If you want to block ALL the Halloween posts, I’ll update this with the specific picspam tag once I figure out one that I like.  Additionally, these are the common triggers that I know the picspam includes in several posts and that I already plan to warn for:

  • masks tw
  • food tw
  • skeletons tw
  • skulls tw
  • ghosts
  • blood tw
  • death tw
  • murder tw
  • slime tw
  • dolls tw
  • mannequins tw
  • arachnophobia tw
  • herpetophobia tw
  • emetophobia tw
  • alcohol tw
  • cultural appropriation tw — I tried not to cap anything that I knew was racist (I didn’t include any caps of anyone wearing stereotyped “Native American” costumes, “g***y” costumes, white characters with “Afro” wigs, “Geisha” costumes, etc.) but I AM including this tag on sources that I feel are dubious, mainly “Egyptian”/”Cleopatra”/mummy costumes and anything in a Halloween episode that claimed to be “voodoo.”  IF I MISS SOMETHING, it was not intentional, and please tell me to go back and tag!
  • body horror tw — I’m trying to hedge really carefully with this one and basically anything that shows close-ups of eyeballs or teeth is getting a tag, but anything grosser than that and I can’t handle it, either, so I didn’t use sources/caps with it!

IF THERE ARE HALLOWEEN-COMMON THINGS THAT YOU WANT ME TO KNOW TO TRIGGER WARN FOR, please tell me ahead of time so that I don’t accidentally trigger you! :(  Just message me. :)

UPDATE: IF YOU WANT TO BLOCK EVERYTHING, THE TAG IS “halloween spookstravaganza”!

Click here to support Allergy Service Dog for Fredrika 

fredredrika:fredredrika:

Help me get a Peanut Sniffing Dog!

I was diagnosed with a severe peanut allergy at the age of 6 after years of suffering from (luckily) minor reactions. Fifteen years later, my allergy has not only grown in severity but also progressed to affecting my education and social life. (Things I cannot do: travel via airplane or train, walk into restaurants/bars, buy food without reading ingredients, go to a majority of sports games, sit in crowded cafeterias, etc.)

After years of research, I have finally found some sort of a solution: an Allergy Service Dog. It’s exactly what it sounds like—a highly trained dog with the capabilty of sniffing out peanuts in busy restaurants, full classrooms, on public buses, and even on the hands, body, or mouth of a person I am interacting with.

Seeing as the majority of my struggle with the allergy is socially (I have learned how to avoid food and certain situations where I may come across peanuts), an Allergy Service Dog would lessen the load I am burdened to carry. Not only would it make me feel more comfortable in public, the dog would also be a certification and/or proof of my allergy for those whom I meet who think I am making my allergy up for attention.

There is a flaw in this plan, however. A Service Dog is expensive, especially because Allergy Service Dogs are relatively unknown and do not receive much support. I am a college student who does not have much money.

I am asking for the help from family, friends, and strangers to support me in my next step in life and this leap towards confidence. I really could not do it without you.

Please share and/or donate if you can. Thank you!

I am 0.9% to my goal! To be honest, this is more than I ever thought I would get to when I first started looking into Allergy Dogs. Please continue sharing and donating if you can. Do not hesitate to email all your contacts as well as sharing my page via social media. I need all the help I can get.

why hasn’t the guy that raped emma sulkowicz been named???

his name is Jean-Paul Nungesser. It’s really fucked up that every form of media has been trying to keep him anonymous. it’s not like it’s a convention to withhold the names of legal adults accused of a crime even if they haven’t been convicted yet.

This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.

This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.
-Morgan
P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown

So apparently iCloud was hacked and pretty much every female celebrity’s nudes were leaked. I’d like to remind my followers not to post them, because they’re supposed to be private, and just because some asshole leaked them doesn’t mean you should make it worse by spreading them around.

Hiiiii friends! We (Aylin, Erika &amp; Jess) have noticed a lack of asexual/aromantic/smut-free fics in the 1D fandom and we’re hoping you can help us change that by joining in this ficathon!
What does “smut-free” mean?

We’re looking for fics with no sex scenes and no allusion to sex off-screen. Whether you want to write an asexual relationship, an aromantic relationship, or just a tale of friends is up to you, but your fic should be comfortable for asexual 1D fans to read.
Things that are fine:
Cuddling and light kissing. If you’re not sure about it, tone it down.
A sexual sidecharacter trying to talk to a main ace/aro character about how they have sex. (Ideally the ace character would not continue the conversation.)
An ace character talking (in not too much detail) about how they tried sex in the past and it wasn’t for them.
It’s fine if your characters do not identify as asexual, maybe they are sexual characters, but for this ficathon it’s not relevant and you don’t need to talk about it either way. 
In the same vein, you can write a friendship/life fic that isn’t about an aromantic character, and simply not have their love life come into play.
Things we’re not looking for:
Anything more than kissing and cuddling. No making out, hands above the blanket, leave room for Jesus. 
Implied sex. (ie “they fell into bed together until sunrise” or “they made out for three hours" or "harry had never had someone touch him the way zayn did”.) In short, we don’t want your main characters having sex. 
Talking about sex in any great detail (Again - when in doubt, tone it down.) 
If you’re still not sure, send a message to this blog and we’ll get back to you ASAP.

What are the rules?

As mentioned above, the fics should have no sex scenes or allusions to sex scenes. 
The focus of the fic must be on members of One Direction, but any and all ships and/or friendships are welcome!
The minimum word count for submissions is 4,000 words, but more is encouraged!
Please plan on having someone beta your fic to make it the best it can be. If you need help finding a beta, we will post a list of volunteer betas for you to contact a few weeks before the submission deadline.

When is the deadline?

Sign-ups are open from RIGHT NOW (29/08/14) until Friday, 12/09/14. After the sign-up period closes, one of the admins will contact you about the details of submitting the fic to our AO3 collection. We will also touch base with you sometime before submissions are due to make sure everything is on track. Submissions will be due Monday, 24/11/14 and we will begin posting Monday, 1/12/14.

How do I sign up?

To sign up to write for the ficathon, fill out this form. That’s it! 

How can I support the ficathon other than writing?

First and foremost, follow this blog! We will be posting all of the fics and art here.

To sign up to provide art for a fic, send a submission to this blog with the following information: (1) your tumblr username, (2) if you have any specific preferences about what kind of fic you would/would not like to illustrate.
You can also participate by posting your art at any time in the tag #1dsmutfree and we will reblog it here!

I have a question!

The best way to get your question answered is to send an ask to this blog, but if you have general questions about asexuality you can also contact Aylin.
