THIS IS SO GODDAMN CUTE.
Like this gif is making my day so much better.
I don’t think writers realize that “strong female character” means “well written female character” and not “female character who punches stuff and shoots stuff”
why does garfield even hate mondays? he doesn’t have a job. he hasn’t felt the crippling pressure of capitalism. he is only a cat.
Girls get mocked for liking high heels and lipstick. Girls get mocked for liking sports. Girls get mocked for liking tea and books. Girls get mocked for liking comics books and video games. Girls get mocked for liking math and science. Girls get mocked for liking boys. Girls get mocked for liking girls. Girls get mocked for liking both. What the fuck are we supposed to like? Water? Air? Come on, tell me. I’m dying to know.

reallycoolurl said: Can you volunteer with RAINN if you don't reside in the US?
I would think since RAINN is a US based organization, it might only take US volunteers but I’m not one hundred percent positive! I was only asked to pass on that message but maybe someone else can answer this better or it can be found out by contacting RAINN, itself. Sorry I don’t have a definite answer! Anyone know for sure!?
IMPORTANT: I have been asked to share this information publicly by an anonymous hero angel. Please take a few minutes to read and pass along the message.
What Can I do to Help?
Helping Sexual Assault, Domestic Abuse, and Incest Survivors
I was inspired like many of you, to do more, to go beyond learning the facts. But what could one person do? I found something right on the Joyful Heart Foundation get involved page, volunteer page:
This lead me to RAINN, Rape Assault Incest National Network
Volunteer-Get Involved for RAINN
Here I found that I could become an Online Hotline operator. I went through the application process, and training process. I won’t lie, it was intense. The training is thorough, but you are so supported. It was humbling, amazing, and scary. Basically, what I do is like old school instant messenger. People who need help and who are in crisis come into a chat room, one-on-one. It’s all confidential. The visitors need help. The staff needs help, as in more volunteers. There is always a wait time. I do this right from my home computer, my shifts are always flexible based on my schedule.
They are an amazing organization. If you ever thought about doing more, or volunteering for this might be for you, or not. My point is, while they do need help, there are other things you can do too. Check out all the get involved pages on JHF and RAINN.
Be an advocate in your community, tumblr, twitter, wherever.
If you already volunteer, thank you times a million!!!!!
If you need help dealing with sexual assault.
