Animals, Children, and Dating: 19:08 f Okay, so propaganda has already taken over, and the news and media blackout isn't helping the sanitization and colorization that western media has already fallen victim to, so l'm just gonna give you the breakdown asl know it: 05:46 Protests started a week ago after 2 kids got run over and killed by a bus. Protests were peaceful with most kids (ages 10-18) taking over the jobs that cops are supposed to be doing instead of taking bribes and scratching their asses. 05:47 At first, they led to runaway traffic, but over 2-3 days, they established a radical improvements in traffic control and safety, clearing up the roads that were previously horrendously chaotic. Not a single civilian had a complaint. No uproars, no violence, nothing. Probably the best civil movement in the history of this country... all by children 05:48 The blame for the prevailing lack of safety and order was rightfully placed on a senion government official - one of the most corrupt and evil of the bunch: the shipping minister. He fueled the civilian's outrage by citing accidents irn neighboring countries and sidestepped the issue quite shamelessly 05:50 Civilians called for his discharge, and students demanded traffic system reforms to ensure safety and alleviation of chaos 05:51 And that's when things started going South 05:51 Message 19:08 f And that's when things started going South. 05-51 The government tasked the BCL - their student activist wing - with"reasoning" with these kids Now these BCL animals are well known terrorists, with a track record of violence, rape, torture, vandalism, etc. etc. dating back almost three decades. 05:53 They reasoned with the kids alright. By shooting at them and striking them with machetes and metal bars. All while being protected by the police - who themselves shot at the kids with beanbags and choked them with teargas grenades. 05:54 Reports are all over the place. It didn't take long for the government to have the cell providers shut down all mobile internet services, so photoS and videos are few and far between. Facebook is the most popular social media platform, but it's heavily monitored and censored 05:55 Several nundred children and young adults hospitalized - some in critical condition, some requiring amputations, most severely injured Several children are still missing 05:56 Eyewitness accounts without sufficient evidence (but I wouldn't put it past these BCL animals) 3 school boys were murdered on the spot with guns and machetes. Four school girls were abducted and gang raped 05:58 One boy had his eyes gouged out in front of Message 19:08 f One boy had his eyes gouged out in front of hundreds of other children. (Some evidence present) 05:58 Several women. including a reporter, have been molested and abused by BCL pigs. (Confirmed and evidenced) 05:58 Reporters at the scenes were brútally beaten, had their equipment destroyed, and threatened with death 05:59 The government run hospitals have refused admission to students of any kind, some have completely shut down. Some privately-run hospitals are struggling with the influx of injuries and deaths, but they re being forced by the government to deny treatment 06:00 Med students and interns in one private hospital have taken to the streets in protest, for not being allowed to treat children in dire situations because of orders from higher-up 06:01 Last night police raided a large residential area which houses families as well as students of the neighboring private universities - the police were formed in their usual riot configuration, but only this time, hundreds of BCL thugs were lined up behind them 06:02 No reports from the situation there yet. 06:02 and that's all I got so fa .02 Message 19:09 f Beating children to death and disability - direct violation of basic human rights and international law 15:06 This shit is fucked 15:06 All being executed by the government and law enforcement.

Disney, Fucking, and Love: Examples of Stockholm Syndrome in Disney trademarkednothing Frollo and Quasimodo Mother Gothel and Rapunzel Frollo and Mother Gothel convince Quasimodo and Rapunzel that their lives are dependent on them. The two villains claim the outside world is a terrible place even though they know this is not true. They also constantly emotionally abuse their victims by implying their Quasimodo and Rapunzel sympathize with their captors and even believe their captors are protecting them and treating them with kindness. However, both captors are merely using and manipulating their victims for their own selfish purposes. NOT Belle does not sympathize with the Beast when she is treated poorly She becomes angry and leaves the castle, only returning by her own wish so that the Beast (who saves her) does not freeze to death. She does not respond nicely towards the Beast until he treats her with respect. In this situation, Belle has control and is not manipulated into feeling for the Beast, nor does the Beast treat her disrespectfully after the first night. While the Beast does have an underlying motive as to keeping Belle in his castle, he abandons this idea and sets her free to make her happy. If anything, this story is a case of Lima Syndrome where the captor starts to sympathize with the victim. Check out this post which refocuses the purpose of Beauty and the Beast from merely (and wrongly) being about Stockholm Syndrome to it's original purpose onlyleigh FUCKING FINALLY spiritsonic I don't usually reblog stuff like this, but Beauty and the Beast is my favorite movie and l'd like to have this on my pagel toasterlyreasons this is actually a very good analysis. I take back all the times I've called Beauty and the Beast a 'stockholm syndrome' romance segasister If anything, the story of Beauty and the Beast falls under Lima Syndrome, where the captor sympathizes with their captives and, in some cases, lets them go. This term originated after a group of terrorists held the Japanese Ambassador's residence in Lima, Peru hostage in 1996 (fives years after this film was released). To quote from the film's entry on the Lima Syndrome TV Tropes page agrees to be the Beast's prisoner in exchange for letting her father go. When he puts her happiness ahead of his own, he eventually lets her go too. She retuns to him later to help him, but this is because HE has made the greater improvement in his attitude towards her. By the film's own admission it was he who first fell in love with her, and Lima Syndrome is more prevalent than the Stockholm Syndrome some believe is at work. It is worth noting that the movie takes place over several months." Stockholm Syndrome in Disney movies

America, Community, and Future: SUMNER AP/SHUTTERSTOCK Linda Brown, Whose Brown v. Board of Education Case Ended Segregation in Schools, Dies Rest in Power, LindaBrown! 💓✊🏾🙇🏾‍♀️ • • • Linda Brown Thompson, who as a young girl was the student at the center of the landmark Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education that declared school segregation unconstitutional, has died in Topeka, Kansas. She was 76. The Peaceful Rest Funeral Chapel in Topeka confirmed it is handling funeral arrangements for Brown. Born in 1943, Brown was in third grade in 1950 when she was denied admission to an all-white elementary school in her hometown of Topeka. She lived 20 blocks from her segregated school, but just five blocks from the all-white school. Kansas schools at the time were segregated by state law. Brown's father, Rev. Oliver Brown, sued the school district in 1951. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) took up the case, which was combined with segregation suits against school districts in other states when it came before the Supreme Court. Future Supreme Court justice ThurgoodMarshall was the lead attorney for the NAACP. In a unanimous ruling in 1954, the court declared school segregation an unconstitutional violation of the 14th Amendment's guarantee of equal protection under the law. The ruling, written by Chief Justice Earl Warren, struck down the "separate but equal" doctrine that had served as the basis for segregation of public facilities since the 1896 case Plessy v. Ferguson. "Sixty-four years ago a young girl from Topeka brought a case that ended segregation in public schools in America," Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer told the Topeka Capital-Journal. "Linda Brown's life reminds us that sometimes the most unlikely people can have an incredible impact and that by serving our community we can truly change the world." lindabrown brownvsboardofeducation education

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>

Arguing, Ass, and Children: Camille Echols added 2 new photos. 22 June at 07:45. I've been relatively quiet on social media about the "Anti-vax" movement. I've seen smart-ass memes saying "why would my unvaccinated kids be a threat to your vaccinated kids if you're so sure they work?" THIS is why. There are people who cannot have live vaccines, like my daughter, who had a kidney transplant when she was 2 years old. She got one varicella vaccine but couldn't get the second because she was immunosuppressed and instead of developing immunity, she would have contracted the virus. She was exposed to a child with chickenpox this weekend and now we are in the ER. She's getting labwork, injections of immunoglobulin and then we have to wait to see what the infectious disease doctor says. The incubation period of chicken pox is 7-21 days. So even with all we are doing, she could still become sick in the next 3 weeks. And that would mean an automatic admission to the hospital for IV antiviral meds. She could become very, very sick from this. Please, if you are someone who believes your child will get autism from vaccines, PLEASE educate yourself. There isn't a single peer reviewed study that came to that conclusion. And the people choosing to skip vaccinations put children like my daughter at risk. She has been through SO much already. And this was avoidable. so Let me address the recurring questions: 01 contacted her transplant nephrologist regarding her exposure, who in turn consulted with the infectious disease team at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and their solid organ transplant PharmD. It was the team's recommendation that I take Ashley to the ER to receive VZIG, which costs approx $5k and cannot be given outpatient. Titers were drawn prior to giving her VZIG. I never claimed that the child with chicken pox was not vaccinated. That is irrelevant. The resurgence of chicken pox, whooping cough, measles and other diseases that were nearly eradicated years ago is a direct result of a large percentage of the population deciding not to vaccinate their children without sound research the support that decision. As for those telling me to "educate myself," I am a pediatric RN with over 10 years' experience in transplant and chronic illness populations. I have had extensive education regarding vaccinations. I would not post about something I was ignorant about. .Those saying "it's just chicken pox, she won't die," please educate yourselves on transplant recipients. There are millions of people waiting for life saving organs. With those numbers, the odds are good that someone in your life has been affected by organ failure. <p><a href="https://black-girl-against-feminism.tumblr.com/post/169858354764/keyhollow-hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">black-girl-against-feminism</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/163004744915/hannie-mylove-keyhollow-hannie-mylove" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://hannie-mylove.tumblr.com/post/163002583620/keyhollow-hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">hannie-mylove</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/162999957525/hannie-mylove-keyhollow-hannie-mylove" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://hannie-mylove.tumblr.com/post/162998925645/keyhollow-hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">hannie-mylove</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/162992998800/hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://hannie-mylove.tumblr.com/post/162991317210/keyhollow-illogical-bullshit" class="tumblr_blog">hannie-mylove</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/162989996495/illogical-bullshit-anti-sjw-movement" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://illogical-bullshit.tumblr.com/post/162896691742/anti-sjw-movement-violent-darts-techno-gal" class="tumblr_blog">illogical-bullshit</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://anti-sjw-movement.tumblr.com/post/162887992421/violent-darts-techno-gal-memehumor-mom" class="tumblr_blog">anti-sjw-movement</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://violent-darts.tumblr.com/post/162637546645/techno-gal-memehumor-mom-gets-real-in" class="tumblr_blog">violent-darts</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://techno-gal.tumblr.com/post/162609433406/memehumor-mom-gets-real-in-facebook-post-about" class="tumblr_blog">techno-gal</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://memehumor.net/post/162520438508/mom-gets-real-in-facebook-post-about-why-the" class="tumblr_blog">memehumor</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Mom gets real in Facebook post about why the anti-vaxxer movement is so dangerous for her daughter.</p></blockquote> <p>Also, if you’d rather make dead kids than have the possibility of your own kid become autistic you are garbage</p> </blockquote> <p>Vaccinate.

You are being protected by the very herd immunity you argue against.</p></blockquote> <p>Look up herd immunity origins. That’s not what it is. Did you know the polio vaccine is know the leading cause of polio related paralysis? Look it up. NPR article. Honestly there is so much to discuss I can’t even get into it. Just don’t believe what you’ve been told. The research and proof is out there. Look up the vaccine inserts themselves. If vaccines actually worked (which actually have very low success rates) and were totally safe- then I would be fine with it. But as it stands, there are way too many risks and not even discussion or concern for their safety. The vaccine makers don’t care if they are safe because they cannot be sued.</p></blockquote> <p>I know herd immunity origins. I’m a biologist. The basic meaning is when a majority of a group is immune to a disease, thus a disease is not able to spread efficiently. Vaccines work with your natural immune system. They create the antibodies just like your body would if exposed to the contagion. Vaccines aren’t magic, they’re a very dead very small amount of contagion. They are safe, tested with blood collected from horseshoe crabs, as their blood has special clotting properties used as its immune system in order to identify any other contagions, especially living ones, that could cause problems. </p><p>“On rare occasions, if a population is seriously under-immunized, an excreted vaccine-virus can continue to circulate for an extended period of time. The longer it is allowed to survive, the more genetic changes it undergoes. In very rare instances, the vaccine-virus can genetically change into a form that can paralyse – this is what is known as a circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus (cVDPV).</p><p>It takes a long time for a cVDPV to occur. Generally, the strain will have been allowed to circulate in an un- or under-immunized population for a period of at least 12 months. Circulating VDPVs occur when routine or supplementary immunization activities (SIAs) are poorly conducted and a population is left susceptible to poliovirus, whether from vaccine-derived or wild poliovirus. Hence, the problem is not with the vaccine itself, but low vaccination coverage. If a population is fully immunized, they will be protected against both vaccine-derived and wild polioviruses.</p><p>Since 2000, more than 10 billion doses of OPV have been administered to nearly 3 billion children worldwide. As a result, more than 13 million cases of polio have been prevented, and the disease has been reduced by more than 99%. During that time, 24 cVDPV outbreaks occurred in 21 countries, resulting in fewer than 760 VDPV cases.”</p><p>TLDR: People like you cause that polio shit</p><p>Vaccines are very successful. Find me a peer reviewed legitimate scientific study that states otherwise. </p><p>The vaccine makers can be sued and care very much, hence they reason incredible amounts of horseshoe crab blood is harvested every year to test batches. Vaccines are here to help you. It’s not a boogie man.</p></blockquote> <p>If you do not vaccinate your children, keep them away from the public. Just because you want your child to to die an early death, it doesn’t mean that we want the same.</p></blockquote>
