socialnetworkhell:

"Consensual sex" is just sex. To say that implies that there is such a thing as "non consensual sex", which there isn’t. That’s rape. That is what it needs to be called. There is only sex or rape. Do not teach people that rape is just another type of sex. They are two very separate events. You wouldn’t say "breathing swimming" and "non breathing swimming", you say swimming and drowning.

reblogging for that metaphor I like that metaphor.

found this gem in the 1996 Cornell Women’s Handbook. it’s what to say when a guy tries to get out of using a condom

“Yes, but you might catch something from me” that’ll get him to use a condom haha

Applies to any form of contraception for any kind of genitals!

"you’re too young to know what your sexuality is" said the straight person to a queer teenager

If you struggle with self-care and see this, stop what you’re doing

rosecoveredtardis:

  • Have you eaten in the last 4ish hours?
  • Have you had something to drink today?
  • Can you have something, even if just milk or water or cup’o’noodles or toast with something yummy on it, if you haven’t, please? 
  • If you have any injuries, can you please take care of them for me
  • Also please take any meds if you should and haven’t, yet?

Whatever you have or haven’t done today just know you’re super strong and I am so proud of you

Okay you can go back to blogging now~ <3

this is a post of love to all my fellow bird owners who suffer mental health or other debilitating health problems

fyeahpsittacines:

you’re doing a great job. it’s okay to put your bird down with a toy or give them some cage time if you need the space to get things together. it’s okay if it all gets too much sometimes. you can do it.

Have you ever noticed that NEARLY ALL OF US have mental health issues? What is it that has drawn us all to our feathered children?

I know for me my Momo helps me so much with my depression just by being her happy little self and pulling me out of my own head.  Where as Zodi helps with my anxiety because she has so much anxiety herself and I need to focus on keeping her calm I just happen to get calm along the way.

You will not believe the shit I get for correcting people when they talk about my daughter like this. Just stop fucking assigning sexualities to babies jfc straight people

We need labels because we do not want to be overridden by the default. And that includes labels for the default, instead of allowing people to insist that they are the norm and thus don’t need a label. Hence all the brouhaha over ‘cis,’ a term used to describe people who have a gender consistent with that assigned to them at birth. It’s perfectly reasonable to label those people, distinguishing them from trans people, who have genders that differ from those assigned to them at birth. Both groups of people need to be identified.

*NEWS FLASH*

trans people don’t have to be ‘passing’ to be valuable

trans people do not have to adhere to heteronormative standards of beauty to be valuable

trans people don’t have to look any certain way to be the gender that they are

and if you hold trans people to any sort of beauty standard, may you live long and never prosper
