HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TOM FELTON!
I have finally hit my breaking point. For as long as I can remember I have endured my mother’s abuse, whether it is verbal, emotional, or as seen here physical. I can expect some act of violence on a daily basis, and her beating me is not an usual occurrence, but today something snapped. My mother did this unprovoked, and this time she didn’t stop. Usually it’s bad for a little while and then she’s done, today it went on for what seemed like forever. At a certain point I decided I was going to do something I never do, call the police. You see, my mother is a highly respected and very well known person where I live. She is on the board of ed, worked for CPS for many years, and is close personal friends with people like the local chief of police, director of our local CPS unit, and so on. I always knew that calling wouldn’t go anywhere and just upset her more, but today I had to try. While she was kicking me I found my opportunity, and somehow managed to get away from someone more than twice my size. I ran as fast as I could, knocking things over behind my, trying to find a phone. I dialed and they listened and my mother proceeding to beat me over it, while I screamed for help. For the second time today, I managed to get away from her and ran to my room. I barely had enough time to lock my door, before she starting trying to get it, to the point that she ripped my door off the frame. I decided I was going to stay locked in there, until the police came. The past few months I have been collecting evidence against her, voice recordings, pictures like these, and videos of her violence, so they couldn’t dispute what was going on. But I was dead wrong.
When the officer finally came up to my room, I attempted to tell him my side of the story, but before I could get a sentence out he silenced me. HE told me that this was my mothers house, and I needed to live by her rules. If I didn’t she had the right to punish me. He also told me to be tankful for her, because he wanted to press assault charges against me. finally, he refused, despite my begging, for him to take me to a shelter for teens.
I am utterly disgusted by the injustice that occurred today. I pray there is no one else out there who is living in such a situation. I am not sure exactly what I am getting out of writing this, except maybe that it’s just nice to be able to open up about this, when I have had to keep it a secret my whole life. idk. sorry for posting such heavy shit.

“Girls are 50% of the population. We deserve to represent 50% of the heroes.” ― Tamora Pierce
LET ME JUST TELL YOU ABOUT TAMORA FUCKING PIERCE. I first read through The Song of the Lioness at 8 years old and I’m still retreading at 19. The female protagonists in Pierce’s books were my idols, my role models, and my best friends. These girls were determined, and passionate, and could beat up the boys. They liked riding horses and swearing and wearing pretty clothes for special occasions. They took casual lovers and had hopeless crushes and turned down romantic and lucrative marriage proposals because they looked to their own wellbeing first and social convention not at all. They were sometimes confused about their sexualities and gender identities and didn’t know where they fit but they were figuring it out one scary self-discovery at a time. They were victims of homophobia, sexism, and racism. They learned to use their privilege constructively. They were powerful in so many ways but they were also human and flawed. Sometimes you were angry with them for the way they acted, and sometimes you wished you were able to bash some sense into them and sometimes they did exactly what your heart told you was the right thing and ended up outcasts for it. But they stuck with it and they stuck with each other and they built their own family. And they improved the situations of so many other girls, both in Tortall and the real world. These books taught me to be a person who happens to be a female, and to treat everyone around me as people first and social categories second.
My roommate and his girlfriend got in the shower together and they’re… Talking about politics?
I was expecting to hear “OH GOD, HARDER,” not “George Washington was entirely correct in his prediction of what distinct parties would do to politics as a whole.”
Nope nevermind, there it is, apparently political debate is just their form of foreplay

This is why anyone who went to college before the 1990s can shove their “Hey, I worked my way through school and graduated with no debt” talk…
Physically hurting looking at this.
I “escaped” college in 2006 and it was crazy expensive back then! I can’t even comprehend what today’s students are going through.
You know what would be a really cool alarm clock, If it were Nick Fury from the Avengers, so when it went off it said “Wake up MOTHER FUCKER!!!” and when you pressed snooze it went “I acknowledge that you’ve made the decision to snooze, but given that it’s a stupid ass decision i’ve elected to ignore it” and just kept beeping.
Yep need it
I WOULD BUY THIS IN A HOT SECOND.
