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?

Please Support a Desperate Incest Survivor 

lace-me-tighter:

My name is Gabrielle, and I am an incest and sex trafficking survivor. After battling eight years of sexual abuse between the ages of nine and seventeen and suffering two miscarriages of fetuses conceived from rape, I fled my father and my abusive household to attend Central Maine Community College. There I was conferred an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts with a 4.0GPA while working twenty hours per week in a federally approved work study program, primarily as a math and science tutor.

Miraculously, I was accepted to Smith College, a premier Women’s College in Massachusetts. Although I was generously offered a significant amount of financial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, and student loans covering nearly all of my tuition, housing, and healthcare, other miscellaneous expenses such as textbooks ($500 per semester+), transportation to and from Smith ($200 per semester+), housing during recesses, and basic dorm amenities (laundry, housing dues, living and school supplies etc.) were not.

If I cannot scrape together the funds, I cannot attend. Without a car or a dependable place to live, I will be forced to consider returning to my abusive household.

As it is, I am bouncing between relatives for the summer and therefore cannot find steady work. I am using my measly reserve of earnings as well as SNAP benefits to feed myself; there is nothing extra. I cannot pay for treatment for my disfigured spine, a result of my abuse, nor can I pay for therapy for my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, much less afford mounting textbook costs. 

If you could please help a sister dig herself out of the wretched hole she came from, I would be eternally grateful. 

Thank you so much for reading and have a fabulous day.

William Bratton: Investigate Ryo Oyamada's Death 

jspark3000:

image

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

i think it’s important that myself and other white ppl remember that we can not even begin to truly understand the pain and trauma of what is happening in ferguson, nor can we grasp the anger and sadness black communities experience due to this situation. all we can do is stand in solidarity, listen, and not derail or take the focus away from the true face of racism and white supremacy.

Petition: Please Enact New Federal Laws to Protect Citizens from Police Violence and Misconduct 

thechanelmuse:

I love good police officers. I have them in my immediate family. Like all civil servants they are underpaid and under-resourced for a difficult job.

However, a long and completely avoidable history of violence by police officers has killed too many innocent civilians, caused a destructive level of mistrust in the community, and is causing a rising tide of anger, frustration, and despair among millions of good people.

This petition is for Amadou Diallo - shot at 41 times. An innocent, hardworking man simply reaching for his wallet, Diallo should be alive today.

This petition is for Sean Bell - shot at over 50 times and killed on his wedding day. 

This petition is for Oscar Grant - handcuffed with his hands behind his back for breaking a fight on the subway - Oscar was shot in the back and killed by a police officer while sitting down.

This petition is for Chavis Carter - arrested for marijuana, searched, handcuffed with his hands behind his back, and put into the back of a police car. Chavis is then said to have somehow killed himself with a gun. 

This petition is for Wendell Allen - just 20 years old - police busted into a house and shot him in the heart - killing him. He wasn’t who they were looking for.

This petition is for Eric Garner - choked to death on YouTube for the entire world to see. While the coroner has deemed his death a homicide, we must change the laws to prevent this from ever happening again.

This petition is for these men, and for many other unarmed men and women who have been killed by the police. It is unacceptable for the police to serve as JUDGE, JURY, and EXECUTIONER. The recent murders of Eric Garner, Michael Brown and John Crawford this past month at the hands of police have so inflamed communities across the country that we believe we are reaching a tipping point of anger.

It is our hope to channel this collective anger into effective policy solutions that will not only make life safer for citizens, but will restore confidence in police, and bring hope to hopeless families and communities devastated by these egregious acts of violence.

Our 5 Policy Solutions Are As Follows:

1. The shooting and killing of an unarmed citizen who does not have an outstanding warrant for a violent crime should be a federal offense.

2. Choke holds and chest compressions by police (what the coroner lists as the official cause of death for Eric Garner) should be federally banned.

3. All police officers must wear forward-facing body cameras while on duty. They cost just $99 and are having a signficant, positive impact in several cities around the United States and the world.

4. Suspensions for violations of any of the above offenses should be UNPAID.

5. Convictions for the above offenses should have their own set of mandatory minimum penalties. The men who killed Diallo, Bell, Grant, Carter, Garner, and others all walk free while over 1,000,000 non violent offenders are currently incarcerated in American prisons.

These federal actions are in the best interest of our country. We will direct our anger, our dollars, our votes, and our voice to seeing them happen all across the country. 

SIGN THE PETITION

McDonald’s worker arrested after telling company president she can’t afford shoes.

"A woman who has been employed by the McDonald’s Corporation for over 10 years says she was arrested last week after she confronted the company president at a meeting and told him she couldn’t afford to buy shoes or food for her children.

Nancy Salgado, 26, told The Real News that she felt like she had to speak out during McDonald’s USA President Jeff Stratton’s speech at the Union League Club of Chicago on Friday for the sake of her children.

“It’s really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day,” she shouted as Stratton was speaking. “Do you think this is fair, that I have to be making $8.25 when I’ve worked for McDonald’s for ten years?”

“I’ve been there for forty years,” Stratton replied from the podium.

“The thing is that I need a raise. But you’re not helping your employees. How is this possible?” Salgado asked.

At that point, someone approached Salgado and informed her that she was going to be arrested.

She later recalled the encounter to The Real News’ Jessica Desvarieux.

“The strength was very powerful, like, just remembering the face of my kids, like I say, you know, just simple things like I can’t provide a pair of shoes like everybody else does, sometimes every month, or anything like that,” she said. “And he needs to know we are what all the employees at McDonald’s are going through. We’re struggling day to day to provide our needs in our houses, things for our kids. And it’s just–it gets harder and harder with just the poverty wage they have us living in.”

“They just told me, you know, well, you’re being under arrest because you just interrupted, you trespassed the property. You’re just going to go to jail,” Salgado added. “And what I remember just telling them, ‘well, like, so, because I have to speak out my mind and I had to tell the president the poverty wage I’m living in, that’s just against the law?’ You know, just be able to speak up your mind and say, you know what, I can’t survive with $8.25? It’s just — it’s ridiculous that I’m going to get arrested. You know.”

Salgado, who is still working at McDonald’s, said she had her hours cut following the arrest and feared further retaliation.

“The CEOs make millions and billions a year and why can’t they provide enough for their employees?” she wondered.”

I think that this is beyond awful for many reasons. People can’t afford to live off of the wages that they are given currently, and can’t even speak out against it. I know tumblr is great for spreading important news like this, so please help me get the word out to support this woman.

Current Medievalpoc Patreon Creator Goals Include Print Shop, Lesson Plans, Book  

medievalpoc:

Many readers have asked whether or not this material is available in other formats- most often whether or not I offer prints or have written a book. Since I have set up the Patreon page for Medievalpoc, I have been listening to feedback from all readers (not just Patrons), as to what you would like to see happen in the future.

With this in mind, I’ve created new Patreon goals for this project, and invite you all to take a look at them. I’m committed to having clearly stated goals for Medievalpoc, with input from readers and Patrons on which kinds of formats they would like to see this project take. I will include a short description of each goal here, listed in the order they would happen with sufficient patronage.The first Milestone Goal, History of POC in Math and Science Week, has already been achieved and will begin on August 3rd.

I invite you to have a look at the Patreon page for a bit more information about them, and once again, thank you for your readership and your feedback.

Additional Database Membership: increased access to images and documentation from interdisciplinary academic sources; more posts with better pictures.

Medievalpoc Print Shop: Informational and Educational posters and print materials with works from Medievalpoc.

Educational Materials and Lesson Plans: I will develop these materials for download for educators who want to increase diversity in their curricula.

Print Shop Expansion: I will make more available in the Print Shop, including clothing, printed educational materials, and rare or licensed images.

Medievalpoc Goes Full-Time: I will be able to work on these projects full-time, and begin work on a Medievalpoc book, which I will pitch to publishers and/or crowdfund printing fees myself.

All of the above projects are aligned with Creator Goals to keep Patrons informed and involved with the process. I want these goals to be achievable and sustainable, and I welcome your feedback.

I’m usually not the one to ask for help but this time I just can’t look away. Below there’s a plea for help from a wonderful Lithuanian girl, Liucija, who’s suffering from a rare degenerative disease, Generalised Torsion Dystonia (wiki page on Torsion Dystonia here). The only way to improve her rapidly progressing condition is a Deep Brain Stimulation procedure (wiki page here).If there’s is any way you could help Liucija, do not hesitate to do so. Every little thing matters and your help would be more than appreciated. Please spread the word. Original post on facebook here.

Where you are, I am there too… these words reflect what is very important to me at the moment.Hello. My name is Liucija. I am a 23 year old psychology student at the Vytautas Magnus University in Kaunas, Lithuania. When I was 10 years old, I was diagnosed with a rare degenerative disease – Generalised Torsion Dystonia. It all started with the spasm in the right hand when I was writing (Writer’s cramp). When I learned to write with my left hand, the spasm spread into the left hand too. A few years later, I started feeling spasm in my right leg and later – in my left leg (inversion with plantar flexion). This affected my walking, which became uncoordinated and extremely challenging.As time passed by, it was harder and harder to write and walk. I had to invent new ways to study at school and university. The computer helps to some extent but gradually my spasms are getting worse and worse. Now I can use only my left hand to type. My walking is also getting worse all the time – gradually involving my torso, back, feet and toes, and it limits my active lifestyle a lot.I was very happy to be able to draw and dance, despite all my symptoms. These two things helped me to cope with this disease and difficulties caused by it, to express myself through music, dance and creativity. They helped me to relax and gain more strength to fight it with. (Please see some of my artwork and dance shows in the links below.) However, even these two things are being gradually taken away from me… Now the easiest form of self-expression is photography. I love wandering in the forest and going to towns on my electric bike and noticing little “miracles” through the lens. But now I find even cycling on electric bike very challenging and tiring.My condition is rapidly getting worse. In the last 2 years, spasm has spread to my neck. I often lose my balance and sometimes fall which results bruising and breaking my bones. I need to do something to stop this disease from progressing and improve my health. I have tried different medicine and Botox injections to the deep muscles of my legs, but they have had little effect.The only way to improve my condition is DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) surgery, which requires great precision and expertise. This spring, I was consulted by neurosurgeon-neurologist Prof. Joachim Krauss in Hanover, Germany. He has specialized in Dystonia treatment by DBS surgery since 1987 and has already done around 700 DBS surgeries. In his opinion, DBS surgery could improve my symptoms by 90 percent.After my extensive research about the surgery and its results and consequences on the patients, and my consultation with Prof Krauss, I booked myself in for the surgery on October 20th, 2014.The surgery costs 35,000 Euro. I sincerely ask you for your help and support – whether it would be a donation towards my surgery or any ideas on how to raise some money towards it. Your every gesture will mean a lot to me and will be so much appreciated.Please share my message with everyone you know and let me know if you know somebody who I could personally approach for help.Thank you for any help you can provide me with.
Yours faithfully,Liucija Tamulyte
