I rant about things. Also, I'm bisexual.
Hey guys so i’ve seen other people try this and thought i would try it. I was suppose to switch schools this year but my mom changed her mind and now i cant, and now the only way her and Joe will let me switch for sophomore year is if this gets 30,000 notes. I got bullied so much last year that i went back in the closet and i’ve talked to the principal of the school my mom is making me go to and he cant to anything about bullying because of “religious freedom”. I went on a tour of the school I want to go to and met who my classmates would be and i feel completely safe there, while at the school my mom wants me to go to I dont feel safe and my anxiety is worse. So maybe we can get enough notes on this for me to transfer?
REBLOG THE SHIT OUT OF THIS COME ON GUYS!!
OH MY GOD ALMOST THERE AH
YOU GET A NEW SCHOOL
Enjoy your new school, kid.
I hate animal cruelty. I support the ASPCA and the Humane Society.
But let me make something clear to you: PETA is a bunch of fucking idiots. Allow me to elaborate. If these dipshits had their way, seeing-eye dogs would become non-existant. Pets? Gone. Cancer research? Gone. But that’s not all. They support any means necessary to free lab animals, even extremism. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, PETA supports domestic terrorism.
In January 2006, Molly leapt a 5-foot-5-inch slaughterhouse gate at Mickey’s Packing Plant in Great Falls, raced through town with police and animal control on her heels, ran in front of a train, swam across the Missouri River and took three tranquilizer darts before finally being recaptured six hours later. She was spared from slaughter and dubbed the Unsinkable Molly B. “Animals do not ‘give’ their life to us, as the sugar-coated lie would have it. They struggle and fight to the last breath.”
"But animals don’t feel pain!"
"They are so stupid that they can’t understand what’s happening"
"Bleh ble ble barf"
I just read about another cow the other day, named Emily, who did the same thing. She escaped the slaughterhouse and evaded capture for 40 days as local residents helped to keep her hidden and purposefully misled the police as to where she was. She was eventually caught but given to a sanctuary called The Peace Abbey where she lived out the rest of her life. There is a statue there dedicated to her.
It’s incredibly sad that so many people easily empathize with these few cows who escaped but don’t give a shit about any of the other billions of cows killed worldwide who weren’t lucky enough to find a way out.
How can people sympathize with this story yet not give a damn about the cow/s in their beef burger?
I agree, total moral schizophrenia, this is exactly what one of my sons said when this post went viral.

[Highlighted elements of sex trafficking in the porn industry connect with the examples Lubben gives in this specific gifset, other elements do occur in the porn industry as well].
"The federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act defines the crime of human trafficking as:
A. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act where such an act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age, or
B. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.” - (x)
… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services. The low status of women in many parts of the world has contributed to a burgeoning of the trafficking industry. -
The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Prevention Act (TVPA). TVPA combats trafficking in persons, especially into the sex trade, slavery, and involuntary servitude. It has been reauthorized three times since its initial passage: (x)
THAT IS RAPE
We need to be talking about this and we need to be making sex work safe. No one should be made to feel like this treatment is okay.
This is why I’m so porn industry critical. And everyone who pretends there is nothing going on is fooling themselves. I used to be addicted to porn, My sexual abuser introduced hardcore pornography to me at such a young age, it really fucked me up. I was literally having to watch the most degrading and disgusting shit to get off and it was depressing the fuck out of me. I told myself that the girls were consenting adults in order to make myself feel better. But more often than not, that simply is not true and consent can often be dubious within the porn industry. Please think about what you’re supporting when you watch certain online porn. There are indie porn makers and female pornographers who are not sex trafficking, manipulating, abusing, and harming women and teens. You just really have to look.
This is the number one reason why I didn’t go down to Florida to do porn.
A bit of information for everyone.
I would like to give Planned Parenthood and their Teen Council forum 10/10 stars
idk about you all, but this made me cry
and i know not all forms do this, this might be the only one, but knowing that at least one organization recognizes me as a person, doesn’t ask me to lie to fit their box, is one of the most calming and beautiful things to experience.
and i’m just waiting for the day when government forms use this, when schools ask for preferred pronouns, when everywhere has an other category for gender and pronouns.
we’re getting there, y’all. we’re demanding to be seen and it’s working
PLANNED PARENTHOOD YES. Thank you, so awesome.
This is really great. I would like to caution people though that every Planned Parenthood is different. Not all clinics will have this on their forms, and although most clinics aren’t trans negative, treatment options like HRT and other trans resources vary from clinic to clinic.
