Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.

Help drop the child abuse charges against Shanesha Taylor by signing this petition at change.org.

Isn’t that interesting.
Tumblr emailed me to tell me they deleted my post calling out the dude who sent me a rape threat.
But hasn’t banned the dude who sent me a rape threat, even though I reported him.
I guess Tumblr just wants to make their site safer for people who send rape threats than those who receive them.
I guess it’s not considered harassment to send rape threats, but if you name the person who sends you rape threats, you are harassing them.
INTERESTING

Signal boost the  fuck out of this. Let’s make tumblr’s moderation team feel fucking ashamed for letting this happen. Let’s fucking make them question their worth and ability and place in the world and make them feel like the utter sacks of fucking shit they are until they fucking fix this and every case like this.

Black lesbian couple found murdered in Galveston, TXMarch 10, 2014
The bodies of two Houston women, a lesbian couple, were discovered near a dumpster in Galveston County, Texas. Crystal Jackson and her girlfriend Britney Cosby, both 24, had been together for two years and lived together. Their bodies were found Friday morning next to a convenience store dumpster, reports Houston’s ABC 13.
Relatives say the two women went to Galveston for Mardi Gras. Detectives believe they were killed elsewhere and their bodies moved. Reports also indicate that they were murdered in different ways. It’s currently unclear whether this was a hate crime or there was some other motive for the murder.
“That was her girlfriend, that was her soulmate,” James Randle, neighbor to Britney Cosby, told ABC.
Investigators are looking for a silver 2006 Kia Sorrento with paper tags–a car the couple recently purchased together. It is missing and whoever took it may be the same person who took their lives, reporters say.
Anyone with information regarding the victims’ deaths or the stolen vehicle is asked to call the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 866-248-8477.

Rest in power.

Thought this may be useful for a few people on here!

This is a new app called ‘Self-help Anxiety Management' by The University Of West England

SAM has been developed by a university team of Psychologists, computer scientists and student users. It engages established methods of self-help and high standards of usability to provide a engaging, flexible & practical resource.

This app is currently only available for devices using Android.

omg i need a smart phone just for this app.

THIS LOOKS AMAZING

Signal boosting this as someone who has pretty debilitating anxiety just in case it could help someone else. I’m gonna give it a go.

It’s on iphone/iProducts now too. I have it on my phone and I love it.

This could be very important so signal boost this <3

Just downloaded this.

This is what I posted about before.
It’s so helpful.

Tweet 1: I can see a lot of people either avoiding Plan B &amp; ending up pregnant or attempting to take multiple doses &amp; getting sick.
Tweet 2: anyone w a credit card (not everyone, I know) can/should use ella ella-rx.com they’ll ship it overnight $45
SIGNAL BOOST. Ella is another form of emergency contraception/the morning-after pill. It’s more effective than Plan B and can be taken up to FIVE DAYS after your mishap, rather than three days. Please spread this around; with all of the anti-choice legislation flying about and how difficult it can be for some people to get Plan B even OTC (like minors, people living in small towns, etc.), this might be the only way a lot of people can get their hands on the morning-after pill.

Boooooost

I’ve also read that Ella is more effective for plus size people.

This is important. Ella works for everyone. Plan B is not effective for people over 176 pounds. Protect yourself

Warning for Trans Youth in Southern Ontario
Avoid Dr. Kenneth Zucker of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto. He will not help you in any way and upon asking many invasive, disrespectful, and irrelevant questions, he will suggest you undergo “reparative therapy” to “fix” you (pictured above). When he finishes writing his “report”, which can take months, he will refer to you in an extremely dehumanizing manner that makes you out to be some kind of oddity (eg “He seems very interested in having breasts.”) and he will not respect your gender or use the correct pronouns whatsoever. Not only that, but when he requests your report cards and school pictures (???) he will really take his time in giving them back when you ask him to. Good luck contacting him outside of an appointment, too, as he very rarely, if ever, responds to emails or phone calls. He has stated he considers trans women a “bad outcome of gay men.” Don’t waste your time with this transphobic piece of shit.

wow no fucking kidding
what a piece of garbage

this warning should be for all of ontario.
CAMH is literally the only place in ON that you can go to if you want medical intervention beyond hormones (like any and all surgeries have to go through CAMH).
the place is horrible.

HEY EVERYONE, I NEED YOUR HELP!!!

The pictures above are all of my mom, Teacher Lee. She runs a completely free developmental preschool. Her program targets the 49% of children in San Diego that can’t afford to attend conventional preschools and it is open to ANY children. Parents and caregivers are required to attend the classes because an important part of her program is to tech parents how they can turn every day activities into learning experiences that can help the child develop the skills they will need to be successful in kindergarten.

NOW, here is what I need from you! Teacher Lee’s program is absolutely DESPERATE for funding! She is currently up for a grant from FedEx, but in order to win, she needs people to vote for her. It would mean so much to me, and to her, if you went and voted once a day and shared this post with your followers. She has dedicated her life to this cause for so many years, and she needs all the help she can get. The link below will take you to the page where you can vote. It will only take a moment, so please, please help!!!! 

http://smallbusinessgrant.fedex.com/Gallery/Detail/da6a6cb8-13aa-4c1a-8c9c-52fbf04b505b/

If you want to learn more about Teacher Lee and her program, you can visit her website 

http://www.teacherlee.com/ 

I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH! THANK YOU FOR HELPING MY FAMILY!

Limora is a good friend of mine, whose mom is a goddess with a cause. Hope you all can take a second to help! 

wow! 522 notes and she only has 265 votes??? come guys! it TWO clicks!

You can vote once per day til Feb 23!
