the lion king + distance
this is very important
Bisexual Steve Rogers gives me purpose.
Oh hi sinking feeling of despair and depression. We havent talked much over the last few weeks, nice of you to drop in. I’m just goimg to lie here crying and thinking about every mistake I’ve ever made and wondering if there is a punchline in this sick joke called my life.
You just make yourself at home. Need anything? A biscuit, some tea? Just my tears? Okay.
watch this #important
something wicked this way comes.
didn’t know what you were talking about so i checked them out. and oh my god they’re so cruel and awful
Yeah. I’m fucking shocked but mostly upset. Here we have a celeb recovering from a serious mental break who is finally getting their life together who has been the butt of countless jokes for years who has run into yet another stumbling block on the road to recovery and is taking the needed time off to process and be okay (and it’s not an event you just bounce back from no matter how stable your mental health is) and now she is being attacked for taking time off for self care? Being called a “super weak, dumbass” for needing time to recover from a miscarriage? Are you fucking kidding me?!
and the following tweet about “deserv(ing) a lil shame” and it would be different if it were Clooney.
I haven’t been this livid in a long time about someone I used to idolize.
Just going to say: if you defend Samantha Ferris’ slut shaming unsympathetic, and I’m going to say ableist, downright cruel tweets - we are going to have a problem. A huge fucking problem.
Omg I messed up my settings and my wifi wont stay connected now. Fuck me I gotta reset my phone again. I’m going to lose my conversations and likely half of my damn contacts again -.-
What is it?
At any time on Thursday, April 24 groups of three or more across the country will gather for conversations on mental health. After texting “start” to 89800, groups will receive polling questions, discussion topics, and facilitation suggestions via text message from Creating Community Solutions. No personal information will be stored.
Why do it?
Mental health is a critical issue in the US, but it is surrounded by stigma and misconceptions. It is a topic that can be difficult to give a voice to. Join Text, Talk, Act to have a candid dialogue about actions we can take to strengthen mental health on campuses and in communities. Polling results will be incorporated into the Creating Community Solutions report to policymakers.
Even if you can’t participate, please reblog this to spread the word.
The effort to end the stigma on mental health is personally important to me. I’d like to give everyone who participates something in thanks, but I can’t. Send me an ask if you decide to participate, and I’ll choose a winner for a $50 Amazon gift card with a random number generator on the next day, Friday April 25. If you’re chosen I’ll just ask for a picture of your or your friend’s message log to prove you did it. Just send me an ask and text in on Thursday to enter.
the team who wins will be exempt from the first round of shootings in the face.

man thinking about that post like
social justice warriors are sometimes the leeroy jenkins, they rush right in usually without buffs, without enough equipment, and probably in misguided and counterproductive ways but their hearts are usually in the right place so everyone who rushes in after them to try and back their asses up usually also gets wiped. refined warriors can usually manage aggro while tailoring their skills to fit the situation, but they gotta be careful.
social justice rangers (sup) occasionally have that One Post that resonated with a lot of people but most of the time they stand back and take potshots at easy targets. rangers are pretty good at getting to the point (if i do say so myself) but prefer to back up the party than to wander into the thick of the mob.
social justice paladins are righteous folks and they can take a lot of punishment, specifically baiting oppressive assholes to keep the attention off their more fragile party members. or they dash right in and start slugging away to draw aggro away from said fragile party members. damn, tanks are cool.
social justice monks are like the spiritual leaders, they’re versatile and wise. maybe a bit older than the usual demographic, they’re pretty zen, their blogs are usually about everyday things and they tend to have a lot of experience. they hold their own communities accountable but will wander into the fray, taking up whichever role needs to be taken.
social justice wizards are fucking cool. wide-reaching AoE and tons of damage, posts with like, tens of thousands of notes, they’re usually buffered against the backlash by tanks and backed up by the rangers. broad, widely-applicable statements suited for many circumstances. everyone wants to be their friend.
social justice rogues are those people who run fandom or hipster blogs who you never expect to give a shit about social justice but they follow a couple wizards and once in a while they’ll pop in, drop a bomb, and then flit away into the darkness. maybe they lose a couple followers, but man were they good at luring those fuckers into complacency. rogues are fuckin hilarious (and awesome) to see in action.
and social justice clerics are those absolute sweethearts who stay out of the line of fire but support and encourage the front line (as it were). whenever the tanks and DPS get worn down, the clerics drop in with a healing spell, maybe some HoTs and buffs. when they do draw the attention of mobs, they’re usually helpless because they’re TOO DAMN NICE and have far too much hope in humanity and just keep tryna cast healing spells on everyone. protect clerics at all costs.
THAT’S MY POST. THAT IS MY POST AND I AM SO PROUD OF HOW FAR IT’S GONE, LOOKING AT THIS RIGHT NOW. SHEDS A FEW PROUD PARENTAL TEARS
