Here’s the big thing about it that might scandalize Americans even more so than the idea of free housing: you don’t have to do anything to “deserve it.” Most countries use what’s called “the staircase model” – you start by being in shelter, then maybe a halfway house, then permanent housing. You can “move up” by going through rehab or getting a job or accessing other services. The idea is that housing is something you get as a reward for good behavior, not something you get by right. But with the housing first model, you get the house first, and then deal with everything else. It’s a lot easier to stop using drugs and alcohol when you have other ways to pass the time and aren’t under constant stress. It’s a lot easier to get a job when you have an address to put on your applications. It’s a lot easier to treat mental illness when you’re in a safe place that doesn’t add to your fear and pain. But if your mentality is that housing is something only the morally pure and socially acceptable deserve, and the only way to get it is for people to jump through hoops to prove their goodness, then of course you’re going to hate this model.

Facebook, Friends, and Hello: What to do if you are witnessing ISlamophobIC A bystander's guide to help the persor harassment n who's being targeted Engage conversation. Go to them, sit beside them and say hello. Try to appear calm, collected and welcoming IGNORE THE ATTACKER Pick a random subject and start discussing it. It can be anything: a movie you liked, the weather, saying you like something they wear and asking where they got it.. THE WEATHER LATELYIS S0 İGNO RED Hl HOW ARE YOU? MY SISTER TOLD ME ABOUT THIS MOVIE Keep building the safe space. Keep eye contact with them and don't acknowledge the attacker's presence : the absence of response from you two wil push them to leave the area shortly Continue the conversation until the attacker leaves & escort them to a safe place if necessary. Bring them to a neutral area where they can recollect themselves; respect their wishes if they tell you they're ok and just want to go 2 This guide was written & illustrated by Maeril | @itsmaeril Translated in English for The Middle Eastern Feminist cognitiveinequality: maeril: Hi everyone! This is an illustrated guide I made as part of my co-admining work at The Middle Eastern Feminist on Facebook! It will be published there shortly. The technique that is displayed here is a genuine one used in psychology - I forgot the name and couldn’t find it again so if you know about it, feel free to tell me!Some could say: “Yes but you can use that technique for instances of harassment other than Islamophobic attacks!”, and my reply is: Sure! Please do so, it also works for other “types” of harassment of a lone person in a public space!! However I’m focusing on protecting Muslims here, as they have been very specific targets lately, and as a French Middle Eastern woman, I wanted to try and do something to raise awareness on how to help when such things happen before our eyes - that way one cannot say they “didn’t know what to do”! I’d like to insist on two things: 1) Do not, in any way, interact with the attacker. You must absolutely ignore them and focus entirely on the person being attacked! 2) Please make sure to always respect the wishes of the person you’re helping: whether they want you to leave quickly afterwards, or not! If you’re in a hurry escort them to a place where someone else can take over - call one of their friends, or one of yours, of if they want to, the police. It all depends on how they feel! For my fellow French-speakers: I will translate it in French and post it on my page as soon as I can :)Please don’t hesitate to share this guide as it could push a lot of people to overcome bystander syndrome!!Lots of love and stay safe! PS: I you repost this cartoon of mine on twitter or instagram, please add me in the post so I can see it, with @itsmaeril :) An important reminder today, and every day.

Animals, College, and Crying: jacks @aJackieLarsen so my school installed a cry closet in the library LMFAOoooooo0O what is higher education A Safe Place for Stressed Out Students Otherwise known as The Cry Closet This space is meant to provide a place for students studying for finals to take a short 10- minute break. Rules of the Closet 1. Knock before entering 2. Only one person in the closet at a time 3. Limit your time in the closet to no more than10 minutes 4. Turn lights and timer off before leaving 5.

Africa, America, and College: A Safe Place for Stressed Out Students Otherwise known as The Cry Closet This space is meant to provide a place for students studying for finals to take a short 10- minute break. Rules of the Closet 1. Knock before entering 2. Only one person in the closet at a time 3. Limit your time in the closet to no more than10 minutes 4. Turn lights and timer off before leaving 5. Use #cryclosetuofu if posting on social media Artist: Nemo Miller in collaboration with Tony Miller and David Meyer 🤨 WTF ? What the flying monkey balls is this? The @universityofutah just went full snowflake and beyond. They created a safe closet “cry closet” for college students dealing with finals where they can go and melt away their feelings surrounded by fluffy unicorns. And this is the folks who will be the next corporate leaders who can’t deal with stress now they hide in a closet? Are they back in Kindergarten? You got be seriously Joking but April fools was weeks ago. Rules of the “cry closet” are , only 10 minutes, only one person at a time, turn off the lights and knock before entering... I can’t even get over this stupid shit anymore. They are 19 years old American kids right now in Africa hunting ISIS and these morons in America have a safe closet with teddy bears. That’s it I am done here for the day. - Update: The university made this closet to make fun of the pussified generation who can’t take the finals and need a safe space to cry. My comment stands.
