spiroandthelacktones: ashleyr1120: polygonfighter: spiletta42: since1938: mediamattersforamerica: WHAT. The tone deafness is mind numbing Okay, so is the point of these things to give cops an excuse to shoot unarmed black people for looking at their cell phones in public?  Or is it to make mass shootings easier by slipping these guns past security in schools?  This is cartoon villain levels of awful.  Fuck the NRA. Guys maybe youre also forgetting the possibility that this gives police a reason to murder ANYONE who could try to RECORD THEM IN THEIR CRIMINAL ACTS. In this day and age its vital to record the police, but with this being a thing they can reasonably say they were “afraid for their lives” that someone was gonna pull THIS on them and then shoot bystanders without question This is heinous Getting close to fifteen thousand notes and almost every single comment is outraged and disgusted, at least people can see the terrifying implications of this : spiroandthelacktones: ashleyr1120: polygonfighter: spiletta42: since1938: mediamattersforamerica: WHAT.

Law enforcement officials and many school administrators say they are crucial for preparing and safeguarding students, but methods vary widely and now include drills that child trauma experts say do little more than terrify already anxious children. "A whole new cottage industry has emerged where people who don't know anything about kids are jumping in and adapting protocols for groups like police officers or people preparing for combat," said Bruce D. Perry, founder of the ChildTrauma Academy, whose clinical team assists maltreated and traumatized children through counseling, research and education. As a result, Dr. Perry said in an interview, "The number of developmentally uninformed, child- uninformed and completely stupid ideas is mind-numbing."

postmcrnews:gerardway: Vote. Obviously I don’t use twitter anymore, but a friend sent me a screenshot of this Stephen King tweet. This sums up exactly how I feel. We’re all caught in a loop and it appears that neither side is going to give in. After Newton, and the inaction I saw, I knew nothing was going to change. Nothing was going to pull those NRA dollars out of the pockets of those that help make the laws. It was a sad feeling, and I started to get numb to it all, just like a lot of other people that felt helpless. Getting numb is scary, because you just start to accept the horror as a way of life. And I take full ownership over the fact that I have used the image of a gun in various things over the years. That is because it is a powerful image, continues to be, and a part of the fiction we were creating with the music. I don’t think pictures of guns are the problem, I think the ease with which people can buy assault rifles is the problem. You may disagree with me. That is fine. This isn’t me looking to get in an argument with you. That stuff is just noise and no one is budging— so the only thing I feel we have left is to vote. And that is what I’ll do. If you feel like me, and you want stricter gun laws, make sure you vote for people that want the same thing you do. Lot’s of love to everyone, especially those in Florida.: Stephen King @StephenKing The 2nd Amendment extremists will never be swayed from their hardline position. The only way to enact sane gun regs is at the ballot box. If you feel that way, it's simple: if they take money from the NRA, don't vote for 'em in November. 2/15/18, 4:05 AM postmcrnews:gerardway: Vote.

Let’s just keep forcing birth control on women, making them take pills that literally include side effects like hormonal imbalances, blood clots, heavier and longer bleeding which can lead to anemia, and literally “sudden death”. Because birth control should definitely be the responsibility of women only. Men are so weak that they can’t stand the thought of something inside their ball sacks. I have an IUD, motherfuckers. I HAD SOMETHING METAL PAINFULLY SHOVED THROUGH MY CERVIX INTO MY UTERUS TO TRY TO PREVENT PREGNANCY. No anesthetic, no numbing. Just a rod right up my cervix. Wanna know what that feels like? Not pleasant. Oh! And I got an IUD because hormonal birth control pills were causing migraines and heart palpitations. But something in your balls? Nah fuck that shit, that sounds invasive. Y’all over here saying you’d rather have the kids then take the burden of birth control and family planning off your woman and let her continue to suffer with the current forms of birth control that don’t even work 100% of the time? You’d literally rather have to be responsible for a human being for 18 years than get a simple 30 minute procedure on your fucking saggyass ballsack? Are you fucking serious? I’m just saying it’s better to be shot at by a gun with no bullets than be shot at wearing a bulletproof vest. And the bullet proof vest might kill you even when you’re not being shot at.  Science has been trying to push male birth control for ages and I’m fucking sick and tired of nothing ever getting funding, or getting FDA approval, or getting recognized as a responsibility for everyone, and certainly not just the responsibility of women. Fuck this patriarchy bullshit.  “Hey, take this potentially lifethreatening medicine for literally the next 40 years of your life, because I don’t want to touch my own balls for a half second.” Yes, men have fewer options for personal birth control, because literally almost every single form of it is rejected by them for ridiculous reasons that are far less than or equal to the discomfort or side-effects involved in birth control methods that involve solely women.  It all boils down to men not giving a fuck about the women they have sex with as long as they aren’t inconvenienced. They would rather a woman take ~40 years worth of pills that can cause a heap of life-threatening health problems, or have invasive surgery, or have an IUD, or or or anything as long as it means they don’t have to do shit. Look at how many men don’t even want to use a condom. I mean, hey, a 30 minute outpatient surgery to install an invisible switch that doesn’t affect their long term fertility at all is too much trouble or too painful. But fuck knows these are the same guys who would tell their girlfriends or wives to go get an IUD or have a tubal ligation like it’s a mani-pedi. Assholes. I’m close to six months off of my hormonal birth control and I’m still suffering from the side effects. When I brought condoms home and expressed how this was the form of birth control I was leaning towards now my partner spit out, “oh I don’t really like wearing condoms.” Oh. I’m sorry sweetie, I didn’t realize I chemically forced my body back into the hormonal state of a nine year old girl all this time just so you could best optimize your nut. I get vision blurring migraines from the combined pill. Literally can’t take oestrogen. The mini pill isn’t all that reliable, so I was on injections. They didn’t want me to be on them for more than two years because they were concerned there was a risk it would thin my bones. I got the implant in my arm, but it caused me to have low-level spotting for literally three months, making me at risk for anaemia and generally fucking up my metabolism completely. During a conversation with my then boyfriend about all of this, he said ‘yeah, but you know… I hate wearing condoms.’ My biggest regret about that relationship is that instead of snapping back ‘I hate having debilitating headaches, brittle bones and no fucking iron, so deal with it’ instead of sitting there battling the feeling that it was me, that I had done something wrong in not being able to just find some easy way to handle it. It still makes me so angry to this day. : buckbeakbabie: qcknd: ishtarelisheba: soloontherocks: zohbugg: aquilamon: plentys: soggymoistbread1: gang0fwolves: whatwindsmeup: discoverynews: Switch off your sperm with this new male birth control Experience the sinking feeling, that anxious self doubt of “did I leave my balls on?” (a sensation similar to the nagging feeling you’ve left the iron on or the stove but with fewer house fires and more unintended pregnancies) this looks crazy painful id rather just have the kid(s) if i witnessed someone turning their balls off like this id jump out the nearest window tbh…… this is disgusting i don’t want machinery inside my ballsack Yeah no who’d want this amazing reversible birth control?
