Hey guys, so my eating disorder is really out of control again, and I need treatment, badly. I got accepted at Timberline Knolls, but they need $2,000 for my copay, plus I need a ticket to a from (I live in California). I spent 5 1/2 months at another treatment facility last year and am back at square one. I’m desperate. Please, if you could spread this or donate any amount, I would greatly appreciate it.
I literally can’t believe how many notes this has ;~~; You all are so wonderful. Thank you so much. And to those who donated, thank you so much! It means more to me than I can express. Even if you can only donate a dollar, that gets me a step closer to treatment.

How the U.S. Might Look if We Recognized Our Native American Roots
You won’t find this map in your U.S. history textbook.
this article is so offensive, the map is trash and is missing hundreds of tribes and has glaring errors & problems with it. also as a Colorado Cheyenne i don’t appreciate Colorado being described solely as Arapaho territory, nor do i take the exclusion of Cheyennes from the description of the Sand Creek massacre lightly. also, most Arapaho do NOT live in Colorado, seeing as they (along with Cheyennes) were forcibly removed due to things like Sand Creek! most Arapaho are in Oklahoma & Wyoming, split into North & South, again, due to things like Sand Creek. and just as a final caveat, look what they DO say about Cheyennes, “Merged with the Sutai people in the early 19th century, and today are collectively recognized as the Southern and Northern Cheyenne. Intermarriage with other groups has blurred definitive population count, but estimates put total “Cheyenne” numbers at over 20,000.” Nvm that our narrative about how the Tsitsistas & Sutai came together is totally different! Nvm that we weren’t split into North & South until colonial genocide happened (like the Arapaho)! And guess what? We apparently only live in Wyoming! *and* to cap it off, you’re gonna use a decontextualized famous 19th century image of unnamed Cheyenne warriors to stand for all Native people!
stop making these stupid things i’m hella pissed about this

I do feel there is a preoccupation with that. The preoccupation with transition and surgery objectifies trans people. And then we don’t get to really deal with the real lived experiences. The reality of trans peoples’ lives is that so often we are targets of violence. We experience discrimination disproportionately to the rest of the community. Our unemployment rate is twice the national average; if you are a trans person of color, that rate is four times the national average. The homicide rate is highest among trans women. If we focus on transition, we don’t actually get to talk about those things… By focusing on bodies we don’t focus on the lived realities of that oppression and that discrimination.
good. fucking. lord. amiyah.
Who is the first woman tho?

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.

"So, er, for the non South Asians in the audience who perhaps didn’t understand why there was applause, the British built a really extensive railway system throughout India before they left, and it wasn’t so much for transportation for the Indian people, it was because it’s really hard to plunder on foot."
Hari Kondabolu’s joke about the British colonisation of India [x]
This is a perfect way of illustrating how colonialisation works, it it’s brutal and intimate. It’s degrading.
This is dead on and hysterical

“Back when George W. Bush was president, liberals were regularly accused of being disloyal or anti-American if they disagreed with the policies the administration was undertaking. As Bush himself said, you were either with us or with the terrorists, and as far as many of his supporters were concerned, “us” meant the Bush administration and everything they wanted to do, including invading Iraq. You may have noticed that now that there’s a Democrat in the White House, conservatives no longer find disagreeing with the government’s policies to be anti-American; in fact, the truest patriotism is now supposedly found among those whose hatred of the president, and the government more generally, burns white-hot in the core of their souls.”

and the county people i work with, too. things are especially intense with one particular worker. i don’t agree/understand why she’s proceeding with things the way she is, but i also want to keep a nice working relationship and potential friendship. i like things to be harmonious. i sacrifice myself to try to keep it that way. i want to sit down with her and hash everything out, but idk how what would fly.
