Ooh I actually love this.
here should definitely be something that focuses on these sisters - they’re really interesting the different ways they ended up.

@tabithalou: This what they not showing you on the media. These young men cleaning up after the riot. #Ferguson

This also is hugely important. There’s a fixation in stories. A general pessimism about the human race. But I think there’s plenty of evidence for our giving nature. That bad, bad horrible things happen and there’s ALWAYS people willing to stand up and make things better. Across generations and cultures and nations. No matter how bad things get, there’s never not somebody looking out for their kids, their neighbors, their community. And that kind of solidarity pushes us through.
Even if it’s something as simple and seemingly small as picking up the trash after a major confrontation. That too is important.

Ron’s anxieties and senses of inadequacy… are the inspiration for some of Rowling’s best writing across the series. Not all of these fears stem from being the rather more ordinary best friend to someone who is Chosen. Ron is ashamed of his family’s financial limitations, which leave him with broken wands, hand-me-down pets, and ragged dress robes, all of which stand up poorly to Harry’s magical tools, his beloved Hedwig, and his sleek party outfit. The moment in Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire when Ron discovers that the gold he used to pay Harry back for the Omniculars Harry purchased for him as a treat at the Quidditch World Cup vanished, and that Harry didn’t notice because he has so much money, is one of the sharpest depictions of the awkwardness of financial inequality in a friendship that I can remember. Their gap in Quidditch skills is another area of friction. And the scene in Deathly Hallows in which Ron, having made tremendous efforts to return to the friends he abandoned, confronts his terror that Harry is more desirable than Ron in every area, whether as a son to Mrs. Weasley or a potential lover to Hermione, is a beautiful illustration of how difficult it is to love someone who constantly eclipses you.

Live tweet from a witness to the shooting who was living in an apartment right in front of the scene. This is heartbreaking to read and made me really emotional so I warn those reading to take heed. Read from bottom to top and the pictures are in order (The one with the arrows is a conversation where he states Brown was shot approximately 7 times, two in the back and 5 after turning around exactly like other witness accounts)  Spread like wildfire.

okay
today i wore a v-neck to school, something that is totally normal for 99% of the girls there, one of the girls in my french class was wearing one similar to mine in fact.
but my french teacher came up to me and told me that i was out of dress code and that i was asking for something to happen to me.
and all day long i had to slap guys who found it perfectly okay to grab them.
im a 32DDD, 5’1, and 115 pounds. due to this im known around the school as the walking boobs, the girl who grew in other places, and BITS. I constantly get called a whore and a tease. 
Girls are always accusing their boyfriends of sleeping with me.
and there have been times when i have had to tell teachers that my eyes are up here.
i grew boobs in the eighth grade, i was a DD then, and i cant tell you how many fights i got into with guys who thought it was alright to stick their faces in them. 
the point of all of this is that its bullshit. 
i should be able to wear a v neck to school without worrying about who is going to grab my boobs next, or who is going to throw a gum wrapper in them, or what girls are going to say next.

Fuck that shit! I would report any teacher that needs to be reminded not to stare at your chest. That is not okay in any sense.
Also, I’d say screw slut-shaming, but this isn’t even a matter of dressing how one wants, but a matter of a woman’s natural state being the reason that men think it’s okay to sexual harass or assault her.

I had to reblog this because she’s not even showing that much cleavage. But she’s totally right. Large breasts are NOT AN INVITATION.

Okay, I don’t talk about this much, but this seems a good place to add it on.
I was a fairly heavy kid, and I started going through puberty early, which meant that by the time I was seven, I had breasts. I had no small amount of boys poking them and grabbing them and making fun of them, including one stunning example of humanity who threatened to “poke your breasts in after school.” I hid in the teacher’s closet until my mom came in looking for me, and they both found me sobbing in there. I had to attend school with this dickhead until senior year, and I remember feeling ill and panicky whenever I saw him in the halls. 
This happens to kids who aren’t even in junior high yet. This happens to kids before they even understand what sex is, let alone what sexual assault is. This happened to me in the mid 1980s, and we still aren’t talking about sexual harassment and assault among kids and teens except in the contexts of things like date rape.
I mean, okay. Maybe that little boy had been sexually abused himself. But even if that’s the case and even if he didn’t understand what he was doing, that little boy got the message from someone that hitting a girl in the breasts was okay, as was flipping up her skirt and shoving things down her shirt—and yes, this happened to lots of girls, and no one ever raised an eyebrow or tried to stop it because lol boys are so cute at that age, I guess.
Having big breasts is not an invitation, and having big breasts when one’s age isn’t even in the double digits is certainly not an invitation. And something needs to happen when people—usually boys and men—think otherwise.

Why is this shit STILL happening?
Okay when I was 11 in the 6th grade I was this skinny gawky kid. Fast forward a year and I was the same skinny gawky thing but with D cup boobs. Another 2 years and they hit an E cup. I was 14 with E cup boobs with a tiny body.
Rumours circulated my school that I stuffed my bra or I had plastic surgery (a 14 year old getting a boob job what the fucking fuck?). My friends dads would stare at me and everyone referred to me as the one with the enormous boobs. It was humiliating. 
It also gets really tiring when you can’t find a single pretty bra and everything that fits you looks like a grandma bra, you get back pain and you’re sick of older men staring at your chest then the rest of your normal fairly flat chested girl friends react with “You’re SO lucky I wish I had your boobs”. On a fucking daily basis.
Yeah and you also get tired of cute normal teenage clothes looking x-rated on you. And anything higher cut looks fucking matronly and awful.
I didn’t have as much of an issue day to day as I’m in Australia and we had school uniforms. But when we had normal clothes, boy, shit hit the fan.
On music camp when I was 14 it was boiling hot and all the girls were wearing singlet tops and shorts and skirts. Because it was hot. I was dressed similarly and a teacher specifically pulled me aside and called me a slut and was told to wear something more appropriate as our headmaster was visiting the next day and she didn’t want him to feel “uncomfortable”. I felt like absolute shit.
Turned out that was only the beginning. This music teacher harrassed me for years - and yeah she was a flat chested little thing that had no idea what she was making me feel. She once said I was “a massive slut that was always trying to show her boobs to the world” in front of a choir of 50 kids including all my friends, and the entire music department. I was horrified and spent that afternoon sobbing at home. The only reason I didn’t get her fired was it was the day before summer holidays and no one was in the offices to make a complaint to.
Teenage girls, no matter what size their boobs are, should never be made to feel that they should be ashamed of their natural fucking body. Girls with bigger boobs should not be fucking treated like this - it’s hard enough dealing with the constant need for new bras (because fuck you we went up another cup size!) let alone updating your wardrobe because your body keeps fucking changing. Puberty and the changes that come with it is fucking hard, and fellow kids and ADULTS ESPECIALLY should shut the fuck up when it comes to boob size.

according to the protester’s twitter account, he was throwing it away from children being gassed, not at the cops

on the far left of the picture, you can see a small figure (possibly two) wearing what looks like dark jeans and a black tee with a white long-sleeved shirt underneath; the white sleeve is clearly visible at child-size, child-height, the curb they’re standing on it’s far enough away for that to be an adult body

this is fucking important to know, especially given how the cops/media are twisting and misrepresenting the protesters’ actions as ‘violence’
