About

Hey there. Tumblr, for me, is a forum for my fandom obsessions (Sherlock, House, Doctor Who, tennis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Harry Potter [especially Drarry, anything Maruaders era and Hufflepuff things (reppin' my house!)]). Occasionally my natural love of politics, social causes, Christian faith, writing/reading, and adorable/fascinating animals will spill over as well. So, just a bit of a random conglomeration of things, good and bad- just like me!

I also run a more "traditional," professional-like blog for thought-provoking essay type posts about politics, religion, books, culture, and more. I am trying to get really serious with it and possibly turn it into something legit (or paid!) so if you could check it out and maybe get some commenting/buzz going, that would be the best ever.

Looking for something specific?

The Abyss Table is a stunning coffee table that mimics the depths of the ocean with stacked layers of wood and glass. Made by London-based furniture design company Duffy London, the limited-edition piece comes with the hefty price tag of £5,800 (nearly $10,000).

Alright guys, this shit got me heated. 
So today as I was getting ready for school, I get a call from my youngest sister’s elementary school clinic. My sister gets on the phone and tells me she is sitting out of class because her skirt is too short. “You need to bring me one that goes down to my knees, they said,” is what she told me.
Quick recap: My sister is eleven years old, in fifth grade, and has some mental and physical disabilities. She’s the tallest girl in her class. Also, the dress code states her skirt must be down to her fingertips, not her knees.
When I get there, I insisted I see her instead of just dropping her stuff off. I was not suprised to find her with a skirt obviously within the rules of the dress code. I asked her what class she was missing and she told me math. She’d been sitting out for atleast twenty or thirty minutes while she waited for me to come.
She only learns things at about a third of the pace as everyone else in her class. Even missing this short amount of time means missing a lot of information for her. Just to recap: she has to sit out of class because of the length of her skirt. She can’t even just sit in her classroom while she waits for me, because apparently that’s too distracting. To whom, you ask? I can’t really tell you. Are ten year old boys, fifth grade boys already old enough to be sexualizing her to the point that they were going so insane with horniness that they had to whisk her away until she could put on something ‘decent’. 
So not only are the sexualizing a fifth grader, they are giving her different rules for the dress code based on her height and making her miss valuable class time. This bullshit needs to stop. Eleven goddamn years old and she’s already being taught her body isn’t her own anymore, that she’s being too provocative if she wears a skirt to the same standard as all the other short, skinny girls in her class just because she looks older.
As a P.S., I would like to point out that she is already bullied because of her disabilities. Pulling her out of class and making her change is even more of an embarrassment, and only leads to more teasing. 

Signal boost, my niece went through the same thing.

this shit makes me so pissed off.
fuck every school that does this bullshit.

Bull. to the Shit.
And the standard is crap; the code says below fingertips that’s what everyone should be held to. Either make everyone have a floor-length skirt or don’t single the developed girls out. STOP.

Someone holds me safe and warm

Horses prance through a silver storm

Figures dancing gracefully

Across my  m e m o r y

if anybody asks me why i hate men, i’m just gonna redirect them to this post.

it’s pretty fucking obvious that men only want to invest in breast cancer research to further degrade, objectify, and jerk off to body parts they already feel 100% entitled to. that’s what is at stake for them. 

what about the women whose “tatas” weren’t saved? how must they feel being surrounded by awareness ads that focus more on keeping women’s sexy-sexy-titties-to-continue-titillating-the-males than saving real life human beings and helping survivors? 

If anyone’s wondering, those posts came from here. It’s a forum for breast cancer support. Give it a read, and you’ll see how many women are outright abandoned by their husbands, sometimes after being married for decades, because their “tatas” couldn’t be saved.
