This photo fascinates me because it expresses a dynamic that you don’t often see between men and women, with a man taking on the adoring role and the woman drinking it all in.

I will always reblog this because all I want in my life is to have a husband with whom I can share my life like this.

Always reblog. Beautiful.

The guy looks like George Benson, big time!

Don’t Leave your kids in the car.

Spread this like wildfire. This man, Terry Williams, made a PSA to spread the reality of what little children go through when locked in a hot car. 

As it says in the USAtoday article: 

A child’s body temperature can increase three to five times faster than an adult’s. That means only minutes left alone in a car can be fatal for a child.

"I’m sitting in the car with the windows rolled up cause I want to know how it feels to be left in the car," 

"As you can see, I’m sweating, like I can barely breathe out here, but my system is stronger than these little kids systems."

Tumblr I’m counting on to get this going. Spread it like wildfire.

This is a topic that make me sob every time I see reports on the news of children or animals suffering from being left in a hot car. These innocent lives who suffer like this cannot protect themselves.

So, please take the time to spread this message and help people to stop and think before considering to leave precious lives locked in a vehicle.

I remember hearing about several deaths involving this shit on the radio god damn.

How can someone even justify leaving a helpless infant alone in a car at all?

SIGNAL BOOST.

White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”

I will never understand why.

Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.

Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.

Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.

If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.

i finally put some thoughts into words // thedeathcats (via taint3ed)

Such direct wisdom from a baby.

Hatred of Women in US/World Culture

The reason none of the families and friends can detect anything “wrong” with these men who become killers is because these men are not exhibiting any behaviors that our culture VIEWS as “wrong”. Their verbal violence against women online is normal in our…
