Over 1 millions children are killed every year in elective abortions, almost 50,000 of them after 16 weeks. Now let’s talk about how to best save their lives. #abortion #forthechildren

I really just love pro-life logic.

Why help those who have been born when we can stick our noses into other people’s private health care matters? Lets try to get them to keep their pregnancies! We can go back to ignoring them after they give birth.

Yeah, makes total sense, right?

You want to save children?

How about we start with the 397,000 in foster care in the U.S. and give them loving, permanent homes? x

Or the 1.5 million homeless children in america? X

Or the 16.2 million children who are going hungry in america? X

Or the 18,900,000 children who are refuges, running from violence in their homelands? X

Or the 6 million children in the U.S. alone who are abused each year? X

Or the 1.2 million children who are trafficked, sold as slaves, usually sexual slaves, each year? X

Oh, no, let’s start with the non-sentient fetuses that can’t feel pain, or know what’s going on. 

Let’s ignore these millions and millions of living, breathing children who are living through hell right now.

Autistic Hermione thinking she’s being friendly when communicating with the boys at first and not realising how abrasively she comes across

Autistic Hermione reading all of her textbooks again and again because the whole study of magical arts is a special interest to her

Autistic Hermione feeling that she has something to prove, that autistic girls can do well in school, can succeed, can be witches and so overloads herself with classes

Autistic Hermione being very picky about the pronunciation of spells because in her therapy sessions they obsessed over her tone and inflection

Veronika Scott was a fashion student at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit when her teacher, Stephen Schock, challenged her class to create a product that filled a need, rather than satisfying or creating a fad. Veronika’s design was a coat for homeless people that could transform into a sleeping bag, since in her city, she says, “you are constantly faced with the homeless epidemic.” 

Not only did her design win a International Design Excellence Award from the Industrial Designers Society of America, it’s become the core of Veronika’s nonprofit organization, The Empowerment Plan, which hires people from homeless shelters and transition homes to help her make the coats. Now, three years later, the 24-year-old social entrepreneur expects that her team of 15 seamstresses will produce over 6,000 coats in 2014 — all of which will be distributed free of charge to people living on the streets. 

Veronika originally designed the coats seeking input from people at a homeless shelter. After receiving feedback from people who used the prototype over a Detroit winter, she refined the design to create her final version which, in addition to being a waterproof and windproof coat and sleeping bag, also transforms into an over-the-shoulder bag with storage in the arm sockets. 

When she started out, Veronika states,

“Everybody told me that my business was going to fail — not because of who I was giving my product to but because of who I was hiring. They said that these homeless women will never make more than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich — you cannot rely on them for anything. And I know my ladies enjoy proving everybody wrong.” 

And, their impact is growing — according to CNN, which recently honored Veronika as one of their 10 Visionary Women of 2014, “The Empowerment Plan expects to launch a ‘buy one, give one’ program that will make it sustainable beyond the donations and sponsorships that keep it running now. Hunters and backpackers who’ve asked to buy the coat will be able to do so, and the Empowerment Plan will still create coats for homeless people who need them.”

Veronika is also excited to show other clothing producers that local manufacturing is possible: “I think we’re going to show a lot of people: you think it’s outdated to do manufacturing in your neighborhood, but I think it’s something that we have to do in the future, where it’s sustainable, where you invest in people, where they’re not interchangeable parts.”

i literally do Not understand the problem with “making up genders”, because that’s not what people are doing.

they’re making names FOR genders that people already feel. gender is so vast and confusing, and you can feel like a huge mix of gender and not even know what the hell to call it, but then someone “”makes a new gender”“, and it describes EXACTLY how some people feel, and it makes them feel so happy and comfortable that they know what to call themselves now.

i don’t see what’s wrong with that at all.

"

So, hypothetically… if I could take a bunch of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and read books at Barnes and Noble all day… and then be able to display my knowledge and understanding of the subject on an equal, if not higher, level than a college student… then, hypothetically… why is everyone paying for college again?

(Answer: Because a college degree isn’t about education, it’s a class marker. If we cared about everyone being educated, we would accredit free online courses and allow people to achieve intellectual growth and success without going into debt. But that’s not what college is for. I mean, yeah in college you can travel and learn from amazing professors and start your own anything and have access to facilities and resources and money, yeah, college is all that. And I’m not discrediting anyone who loves college but… college, at the end of the day is a business. College is just one more big way to perpetuate the system. But I say f**k the system, man.) #FreeEducationForAll #LearnRadically
