We don’t disrespect American Girl in this house Don’t you dare disrespect Addy, or any of my girls for that matter. American Girl used to be legit. Good stories, good dolls, good movies. Felicity’s story was set in the beginnings of the American Revolution, and addressed the conflict that she faced when her loved ones were split between patriots and loyalists. It also covered the effects of animal abuse, and forgiving those who are unforgivable. Samantha’s stories centered around the growth of industrial America, women’s suffrage, child abuse, and corruption in places of power. Also, it emphasises how dramatically adoption into a caring family can turn a life around. Kit’s story is one of my favorites. Her family is hit hard by the Great Depression, and they begin taking in boarders and raise chickens to help make ends meet. Her books include themes of poverty, police brutality, homelessness, prejudice, and the importance of unity in difficult times. Molly’s father, a doctor, is drafted during the Second World War. Throughout her story, friends of hers suffer the loss of their husbands, sons, and brothers overseas. Her mother leaves the traditional housewife position and works full-time to help with the war effort. They also take in an English refugee child, who learns to open up after a life of traumatic experience. American Girl stories have always featured the very harsh realities of America through the years. But they’re always presented honestly, yet in ways that kids can understand. They just go to show that you don’t have to live in a perfect time to be a real American girl. Dont you fucking dare disrespect the American Girls in my house. ESPECIALLY Addy!! That was my first REAL contact with the horrors of slavery, as I read about her father being whipped and sold and her mother escaping with her to freedom, but also how freedom was still a struggle. A slave doll. Please. Read the books. Clowns on social media: “This thing looks kinda potentially maybe bad from just a few superficial details, so I have decided that this thing is evil. If you like it, you are evil too.”

Amazon, America, and Children: Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump God bless the people of Mexico City. We are with you and will be there for you. 9/19/17, 2:05 PM 36.6K Retweets 121K Likes lestrangest: lestrangest: vanwolffen: thefingerfuckingfemalefury: lestrangest: lestrangest: This shit. This makes me furious. Now he’s saying USA “is with Mexico” ?? Oh but not when he said “Mexicans are rapists and thieves” not when he said he was going to force them to pay for the wall, not when he removed DACA that was the only hope for hundreds of Mexicans. Now, only when a tragedy occurs, the first and ONLY thing he does is put a fucking Tweet saying “we are with you”. This Tweet does nothing, it is a mere reminder that the USA does not fucking care about Latinos. This is the fucking face of hypocrisy and uselessness. Trump is not “with Mexico”, he has never been with any Latino country and he will not be even if every country in Latin America exploded in flames. Y'all will like and reblog my fucking Pewdiepie post 3000 times but you’ll sleep on this?? im literally disappointed If anyone had any doubt in their mind that this tangerine coloured horse-humper lies with every word he shits out of his mouth, here’s the man who hates Mexico and the Mexican people so much that he wants to build a modern-day Berlin Wall to surround their country trying to claim that he gives a shit about them Leaving hate aside, we do need help, Mexico was struck with a series of very hard earthquakes and two hurricanes in the past weeks, Media focuses on the hard stuff and the inmediate as well as the disasters in more developed countries like the US, the help is very needed.

A peso is equivalent to almost .05 Dollars or Euros. And you can acceswith your Amazon account and make the conversion before payment. There are also things you can buy to help with less than a three dollars, maybe even less than one.  There is people trapped in buildings and  the death toll keeps rising, we have been hit hard before and have a group of very capable rescuers, the Topos (moles) of Tlatelolco that have helped when disaster has struck in other parts of the world, you can donate to them in here, donations even if small is a lot of help.  And if you can’t donate, please share this with the links. This is a bit of what the destruction in Mexico City and the other states looks like.  Pictures source: Fortune Oaxaca and Chiapas Thank you so much for providing useful links and information!
