Being Alone, Animals, and Lgbt: this-tragic-affair Charities/organisations to avoid: PETA: They'd rather spend their money on publicity campaigns than on the animals in their care. PETA killed 73.8% of the animals in their care in 2015 (x) FCKH8: Is a for-profit company that exploits oppressed groups for money. They're also wildly uninformed, and spread misogyny, cissexism and bi/panphobia, as well as stealing their posts/designs (x) Autism Speaks: They spend most of their money on researching a way to eliminate autism, heighten the stigma against autism and don't have a single autistic person on their board (x) Please support other, better charities, and feel free to add any others you can think of to this paintedspectres Susan G. Komen for the Cure: CEO makes insane amounts of money, they deny a lot of requests for wigs/help with treatment/etc., and have attempted to sue other charities that use the color pink as part of their anti-breast cancer campaign. xx) prochoice-or-gtfo The Salvation Army: They promote the hatred of LGBT+ people, work with fundamentalist Christian groups to support conservative politics and rip off and exploit workers. (xxx) shitpost-senpai Wounded Warrior: They take money that should be spent on veterans and blow it on huge opulent parties for the company bigwigs. 26 million in 2014 alone wasted! x x) thefingerfuckingfemalefury Important reminder to NOT waste any money donating to these groups ayellowbirds Reblogging because of the added info about Wounded Warrior. arch4ngel A good way to know if a nonprofit you're donating to is allocating their money in the right way is to check out their Charity Navigator darkbookworm13 Signal boosting, the bell ringers are out in force, and this info is too important ayamccabre Depending on where you are, charity budgets may be public.

Look up symptoms of prostate cancer and you will see what you are using it for, alternatively look up what a lovely time men have who had their prostate removed due to cancer which leads me to the reason why these men choose to have their prostate removed… </p> <p>b) cancer spreads! It’s fucking horrifying, it grows beyond the borders of the originally afflicted organ, it can spread through your blood and it’s not a foreign virus, it’ your own body eating your alive. It doesn’t matter if you think you are not using your prostate (you definitely are), it’s not just going to sit there complacently, it’s going to spread to other organs and it will kill you. </p> <p>And the reason why there is more content about protecting yourself from prostate cancer is that just like breast cancer in women it’s way more common than bone or brain cancer.<br/></p> </blockquote> <p>Okay!<br/><br/>There’s no need to call me stupid just because I happened to not know a piece of obscure medical trivia!</p></blockquote> <p>“Obscure medical trivia.” So… the fact that cancer spreads and fucking kills people is obscure now? </p></blockquote> <p>This guy 😂</p></blockquote>

Black History Month, Church, and Girls: <p>Black history month artistic figures day five: Singer, pianist, and activist Nina Simone.</p> <p>Nina Simone was born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in Tryon, North Carolina in 1933. She started playing piano when she was three years old and dreamed to one day become an a concert pianist. Her first official recital performance was it a classical recital when she was 12. Her parents, who had taken front row seats for the recital, were forced to move to the back due to segregation at the venue. When Simone found out about it, she refused to play until her parents were allowed to move back to the front. This event sparked her later activism.</p> <p>With the help of scholarship money, Simone was able to attend Allen High School for Girls in Asheville, North Carolina. After her graduation she spent the summer of 1950 at the Juilliard School, as a student of Carl Friedberg, preparing for her addition at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. Despite a fantastic and well received audition, Simone was denied admission to the school. She suspected racial prejudice was to blame.</p> <p>In order to make ends meet, Simone ended up taking a job as a resident pianist and singer at a bar. This is when she changed her name from Eunice Waymon to Nina Simone, in order to disguise her identity from her minister parents who did not approve of her playing “the devil’s music“ in bars and clubs. Her mixture of genres, including jazz, blues, and classical music in her performances at the bar earned her a small but loyal fan base.</p> <p>Though she had always drawn on her African-American roots in her music, in the 60s and 70s Simone became very active in civil rights and anti-Vietnam causes. She wrote her now well known song “Mississippi Goddam” in response to racist attacks and murders, including the high profile Birmingham church bombing that killed for little black girls and partially blinded a fifth. She considered it her first civil rights anthem.</p> <p>Later in life Simone moved Barbados and then France, where she lived out her days until passing of breast cancer in 2003. Her ashes were scattered in several African countries and she is survived by one daughter, an actress and singer who uses the stage name Simone.</p>

Doctor, How Many Times, and Life: 1. Redness 2. Breast swelling 3. Pain or itchiness the breast or enlargement of the breast Breast cancer ymph nodes 4. Thickening of the skin 5.

She noticed when she was breast feeding my little brother and blood started coming out instead of milk.  My mom said she felt and saw a little lump in the shower. She was lucky enough she found it at stage 2 My mom had a mammogram. The radiologist thought the spots were just regular calcium deposits.  Turns out it was triple negative breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nods. Mastectomy, radiation and chemo saved her life. This could SAVE a life. dont be embarrassed to reblog, this post could be life saving Signal BOOST and pass it on. I had a breast cancer scare before (luckily it was just scar tissue…) and information like this kept me calm and collected at the doc’s. As a cancer patient myself, who found my own cancer through a supposed LARPing injury last year, i know how scary it is and how important it is to catch it early. Please spread this around! listen to ur boobs its all in the boobs hoW MANY TIMES AM I GOING TO REBLOG THIS ! SORRY FOLLOWERS , #sorrynotsorry Always reblog!  REBLOG,THIS COULD SAVE SOMEBODY!!! DONT BE EMBARRASSED!!! B Reminder that anyone who grew their own breast tissue can get breast cancer. That includes trans women, intersex peeps, and cis men who may not have been aware there could be some breast tissue in there. The only way to be sure you don’t have any at all is if you’ve had it all removed. If you’ve had tissue removed for reasons other than cancer, they likely didn’t remove all of it. If you find something weird, regardless of who you are or how you identify, get it checked out. All of you should reblog this. Breast cancer affects everyone and there’s not enough information about it. My breasts itch all the time…should I start being concerned?? Maybe look up some big about it online, or ask your doctor some questions if you get the chance. If your something with your boobs suddenly changes, and it’s not what you’d consider a good change, get it checked out.  And whether it hurts or it doesn’t, still, get it checked out.  If it turns out to not be cancer, at least you checked and can have peace of mind that you did.   (Been there, done that, had surgery and thank goodness it was not cancer but was a tumor that made me feel like I was being punched in the boob for months.)
