Being Alone, Children, and Friends: Tweet t1 DickMonger Retweeted Slim Dollars @SlimDollars some people wasnt raised. they was tolerated.. sat in front of a tv and given chicken nuggets and capri suns they whole childhood... we gotta really be mindful of that 4/2/18, 7:59 AM 2,085 Retweets 3,100 Likes smitethepatriarchy: bpdcalvinfischoeder: zakbaganses: jazzisback: sauvamente: Okay but how is this our problem? What’s the context? Thank you, like what does this have to do with me? I’m supposed to be considerate of what here, a lack of socialization? You’re supposed to be aware that some people were raised to be tolerated and that transfers into their adult life. Always being alone as a child doesn’t help you grow into a social adult. It leads you to be friends with people you believe are your friends but are only tolerating you. It leads you to believe that the people who love you and are around you are only tolerating you because you’re around. It feels scary to ask people for anything because you’re afraid they’ll give you what you want only to get you away from them. It makes you feel unlovable, unsocial, and intolerable to the people you love and should know, love you. This is also something that tends to happen to children of resentment; kids who were born to parents who had kids because they were expected to, or any other reason besides wanting kids unconditionally. It’s a very lonely, loveless childhood. It’s a childhood full of you trying to tell your parents about problems and they brush you off, or wanting to talk about something you like and you get “thats nice honey but could you -insert excuse to get you away from them-” You constantly second guess peoples motives. You don’t believe anyone could genuinely want to help you. You see yourself as a bother. You don’t trust people when they do nice things for you because you think theyre just trying to placate you and make you go away. Everyone is only doing nice things for you to be polite, not because theyre a nice person or they care about you. And usually this kind of childhood is accompanied by emotional abuse. Your parents tolerate you, but they would really rather you not be around. And kids aren’t stupid. They know. And it hurts them. It hurt me so much. You grow up believing no one would ever actually love you. Some people really just don’t give a fuck about anyone but themselves to the point that they get offended when you ask them to be aware that many individuals had shitty childhoods.

Bored, Confused, and Crush: biggest-gaudiest-patronuses In 5th grade some boys hid my desk in the boys bathroom. I was confused when I got to school and it was missing, so l just sat on the floor and read my book until the teacher came in and made them put it back. I realize now they were trying to trick me into go into the boys bathroom, but no one actually told me that's where my desk was, and it didn't occur to me to ask. Looking back I realize they had to make the effort to get to school early to move it, and I feel a tiny bit of regret for not reacting more biggest-gaudiest-patronuses In 3rd grade Richard brought his new lacrosse set in for show in tell. the ball went missing during class time and at the end of the day we all had to check our bookbags to look for it. I only glanced in mine (I just wanted to go home), but that evening I found it at the bottom of my bag. I was so scared of being blamed, I threw it into the neighbor's yard and never told anyone I found out 2 years later that my bully Luke put it there to frame me, and he was stil extremely frustrated I hadn't gotten caught. I'm pretty sure Richard got a new ball feral-renaissance-cat I had a crush on a boy I met in Kindergarten and made NO attempts to hide it because the people on TV were always telling each other when they liked each other. Didn't work as well as I'd hope (i.e. didn't work AT ALL and no boy wanted to hang out with me ever after that), but that's not the point Skip ahead to third grade. We had a new kid who was kind of a jerk. One day he asks me if I have a crush and I'm like, "Yeah, [Crushl And?" Dude turns around and yells to my crush "Hey! She has a crush on you!" My crush just kinda sighs and is like, "Yeah. I know. Everyone knows. Thanks." So this guy was hoping to embarrass me in front of everyone but it completely backfired because I lack the social filter necessary to feel ashamed of my base desires darkhumourandfandoms One time in like kindergerden some kid stole my shoe and instead if reacting I just went the whole day barefoot. No one questioned it He got bored of no reaction and just dropped the shoe but by then I was too committed and continued to walk around barefoot lycant-guy22 Some of yall grew up with a low base stat of "fucks given" biggest-gaudiest-patronuses damn right we did Source: biggest-gaudiest-patronuses

Animals, Apparently, and Ass: captainsnoop i was playing pokemon blue on stream earlier at 350% speed and i got to thinking what if the reason nobody in the pokemon world has any good teams is because its considered a dick move to have a proper team comp like culturally everyone is like "haha pick the pokemon you want! if you're happy with three geodudes, thats you and your life!" and then you're supposed to just have a friendly battle with any other pokemon trainers and whatever pokemon they just happen to have like the average trainer is probably just walking around with a growlithe because that's their pet, or a hiker has three geodudes because the geodudes help him with hiking and if this pet owner and geodude hiker meet, you're supposed to have a friendly battle but nothing too serious now imagine the 10 year old kid that has six pokeballs on their belt comes up. you're like "haha, we'll have a friendly battle!" and you throw out your geodude and they throw out a fucking gyarados, and it one-shots your geodude and then you throw out your pidgey you have because the pidgey helps you navigate mountains because you're a hiker and then electricity crackles around the gyarados and a thunderbolt flies off of this giant dragon and evaporates your pidgey so you're down to your last pokemon. you tell them you're gonna send out your bulbasaur. the ten year old is like "oh okay in that case i'm gonna pull out my vulpix." like not only is this kid walking around with an amped-up super dragon, but theyve also got multiple pokemon specifically for making type advantage counter-picks? this kid's a fucking asshole! really, kid? what are you trying to prove here? this is a friendly match between strangers for fun! why are you composing real-ass competitive teams? what a fucker! jumpingjacktrash i mean if you look at how npc's talk about their pokemon, they're service animals mostly some of them are just pets. apparently they really enjoy sparring, so you let them battle other people's pokemon for socialization, it's like going to the dog park. hell yes i'd be mad if i took my chronic pain support chow-chow to the dog park and some asshole with four rottweilers and a husky was like SIC EM THUNDERNUTS even if my dog enjoyed the tussle at first. look, kid, the paras helps me weed the garden it's not a special forces attack paras. it's just a bug that eats dandelions. please calm down maxiesatanofficial This is precisely why Cooltrainers are exiled to the mountains Source: captainsnoop A very long post about Pokémon

Abc, Children, and Complex: MorningAfter Former Walking Dead Star's New Role ls Real-Life Superhero Jacob Clifton Flled to: THE WALKING DEAD NEWS .com 'Walking Dead' Actress Goes Undercover And Saves 55 Sex Slaves In Real Life PERD MUSIC POLITICS TV MOVIES CULTURE SPORTS REVIEWS LISTS RS COUNTRY COVERWALL 'Walking Dead' Actress Helps Rescue Colombian Sex Slaves Laurie Holden, who played "Andrea" on the zombie drama, part of real life sting mission that brought down notorious sex trafficker BY DANIEL KREPS aMc WALK WALK! aMc intersectionalism: “Here’s a pretty unbelievable story: Laurie Holden is an actress who plays Andrea on “The Walking Dead,” but she isn’t just an actress. Holden also works as a human rights activist with a group called Operation Underground Railroad. It’s an organization run by an ex-CIA agent named Tim Ballard that works to take down unsavory human traffickers and the like. So, Holden and the group went down to Colombia to try to take down a group of men who were trafficking in underage prostitutes. Ballard, Holden and co. ingratiated themselves into this group and set up an elaborate party in an effort to catch these men in the act….” Adam Pliskin, Elite Daily  “For months, the group put together a massive sting operation in cooperation with Colombian authorities. They each had an elaborate cover story. Ballard’s story was that he was the best man in a wedding back in the U.S. and was looking to hire several underage prostitutes for a big bachelor party in Cartagena. The cover was meant to lure the sex traffickers into a setup so that Ballard and his team could rescue the girls, many of whom were under 18. … In order for Colombian officials to prosecute the sex traffickers, they have to catch them exchanging money for the girls on tape. … Holden’s job was to “keep [the traffickers] occupied by the pool area while Ballard and the undercover officers worked to catch the traffickers on tape exchanging money.” Candace Smith and Aristides Pinedo-Burns, ABC News  “When the traffickers agree on camera to to pimp out the underage girls and the money is exchanged, the cops move in to make the arrests.  During the ordeal Holden works with social workers to comfort the girls, who fear they’re the ones who will be in trouble and that they won’t be paid. Holden is clearly heartbroken when interviewed after the fact. But she should also be extremely proud of her work.” Ian Cervantes, Complex Read more plus video

If you cannot give your dog the exercise and socialization it needs yourself, please do not own one. </p> <p>Let me tell you about Balto. There was a lady in my town who owned a Siberian Husky named Balto that she would let him roam town and people either had to take him into their homes each night or call animal control. </p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="297" data-orig-width="485"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/b41d9c0f2ba8bc9075068fd2e45946ab/tumblr_inline_p282t8CfN21qkaned_540.png" data-orig-height="297" data-orig-width="485"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="583" data-orig-width="485"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/08a6ebe37e457dc2c10a6a0d23d0af44/tumblr_inline_p282td2z4c1qkaned_540.png" data-orig-height="583" data-orig-width="485"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="410" data-orig-width="502"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/e82e45e7d0a4833b6cfed7648e964c2a/tumblr_inline_p282taJOw41qkaned_540.png" data-orig-height="410" data-orig-width="502"/></figure><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="546" data-orig-width="496"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/abde87c61711607d169264895580f87a/tumblr_inline_p282thN1FG1qkaned_540.png" data-orig-height="546" data-orig-width="496"/></figure><p>Eventually all you’d have to say to them was “Balto’s loose again” and you wouldn’t even have to fill out anything. He was digging up gardens, shitting on people’s driveways, nearly run over 3 times (one of which caused a guy to swerve and hit a mailbox), he jumped someone’s fence and impregnated their Lab, he was forcefully removed from property by people who didn’t like dogs, had BB guns shot at him by kids, chased cats into trees and was eventually attacked by an aggressive dog. After a $500 vet bill, she let her dog back outside again! Her excuse was that she “couldn’t keep him in the yard”, which was just because he was a high energy breed and she worked 10 hrs a day, do she didn’t have the time to exercise him. So why pay $1100 for a high energy breed when you know you can’t handle one? Novelty. He was eventually picked up and sold online because he was a purebred, found him 8 hours away, after the person who bought him saw her post on facebook. </p> <p>Some people may think they are doing the right thing by letting their pets roam freely, but we do not live in an idealistic society where everything is safe. There are wild animals that will find your pet an easy meal, there are people who will not slow down for an animal that runs into the road, and there are people who will hurt your pet if it comes near them, and they will breed, causing more unwanted pets to be brought into the world to be neglected because you didn’t want to give your dog exercise. Eventually Balto’s owner realized that she couldn’t handle his high energy needs anymore and dropped him off at the shelter, where he was adopted by a man who owned an acreage and had 6 other Siberian Huskies. <br/></p> </blockquote> <p>^This</p> </blockquote> <p>Well I’m glad the story ended happily.</p>

Community, Facts, and Hillary Clinton: Mikel Jollett @Mikel_Jollett Number of people who go bankrupt every year bc of medical bills: Britain: 0 France:O Japan: 0 Germany: 0 Canada: 0 USA: 643,000 liberalsarecool:Talk about obstruction. What if Republicans really cared about health care. During my stint with my economics degree I did research on homelessness. A lot of temporary homelessness is caused by something economist call ‘income shocks”, in other words unforeseen costs that are incurred that break your bank so to speak.  57% of Americans cant even afford an unexpected price tag of $500 and often non-chronic homelessness is caused by simply not being able to afford a car accident or a medical expense or a relatively small expense that wasn’t planned for. The reason why I mention this and mention homelessness is because it is incredibly sad that in this country, you can literally die on the streets if you can’t afford a medical bill, yet our neighbors in Canada treat their citizens with cancer, auto immune disorders, MS, Aids/HIV etc. virtually for free. Another thing that infuriates me is that even Democrats and their leadership and even Hillary Clinton who ran last year as a “progressive” called Universal Healthcare and Bernie’s single payer plan “pie in the sky” despite the fact that these plans work, are less expensive, and give better health outcomes than our system- also despite the fact that the majority of Americans and the majority of Democrats want universal healthcare.  We need to fight for Universal Healthcare now and until we get it. People’s lives and purses depend on it. The tumblr community should do more to push this. THIS  is a major social justice issue and one that can be easily won since the facts, science, and economics or on our side.  We need this, and we need it now.
