"healthy living" is a bourgeois construct to victim blame the working class for not being motivated to eat and live healthy after being forced to work exorbitant hours that takes up a majority of their life. only the rich can afford to be healthy.

Also it shames and marginalises people with disabilities and chronic illness and a whole shit ton more problematic stuff too. Fuck the concept of “healthy living”.

Remembering African-American Victims Injured By Police Brutality In America
Rev. Earl Baldwin Jr. (Pennsylvania): Tased By Pittsburgh Police While Praying & Giving Last Respects For His Deceased Stepson In A Hospital, Survived The Taser Attack, Has Now Sued Pittsburgh In A Civil Rights Lawsuit Over The Tasing

Reverend Earl Baldwin Jr. of Pittsburgh filed a civil rights lawsuit against police after they allegedly restrained and tased him in a hospital emergency room. Baldwin claims he was trying to pay his last respects to his dead stepson when the incident occurred.
According to Baldwin, he was trying to pray for 23-year-old Mileek Grissom in the UPMC Mercy Hospital, when officers pulled him away and tased him. “I needed to tell him his family was going to be OK,” Baldwin explained to WPXI. “I was going to do everything I could to make sure they were OK.”
Video from a hospital camera shows a distraught Baldwin handcuffed and surrounded by several officers trying to pull him away from his son, and one of the officers shooting him in the back with a taser. Officers say Baldwin was interfering while doctors tried to revive Grissom, but a family attorney says Grissom was dead and not being treated at the time.



The police department has not issued a statement about the lawsuit, but UPMC refutes Baldwin’s claim. “Clearly this was a stressful situation and a tragic loss for this family,” it said. “However, the allegations about the circumstances are inaccurate.”

Tori Baldwin, Grissom’s mother, was denied entry into the hospital at the time.

Sexy costumes for young girls have officially gone too far

Over the weekend, Canadian writer Raina Delisle gained attention after penning an op-ed for the Huffington Post titled “Halloween Costumes Are Sexualizing Our Youngest Trick-Or-Treaters.” 
Delisle wrote about how she took her daughter to Value Village to buy a firefighter outfit for Halloween. But to her shock and disappointment, she found that while the boys’ costumes looked like actual firefighter outfits, the girls’ costumes were prettied-up parodies that bordered on inappropriate.

And before anybody comes at me or any of these protesters for using swear words or curse words to make a point, let me tell you a story.

There is a United States Supreme Court case from the 1970s called Cohen v. California. And it’s one of my favorites. It’s about a…

Do not EVER clock/point out/make fun of masculine looking trans women or feminine looking trans men, Do you realize how much courage it even takes to come out as transgender let alone go out the first time “in girl/boy mode”? It’s fucking brutal, and trust me it’s taking everything they have. Make them feel good. Compliment them, make them feel pretty/handsome. Support people around you and quit being a fucking dickhead.

LISTEN UP!
I rarely ever do posts like this, but I feel like this will really matter to some people.
AO3 is asking for some money, to keep the organization going. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE ao3. There probably hasn’t been a day I haven’t been on it in the last two years, I and seriously doubt there is anyone who reads fanfiction and doesn’t know of this wonderful site. 
Now clearly, one could say there are better causes to put your money to, especially on a site like tumblr. But for some people, fanfiction and fanart is their escape, I’ve read lots of stories about people being depressed and then finding out about certain ships and then becoming much happier people, and personally, fanfiction is the reason I started making friends through the internet and connecting with people because of what I love.
So all I’m asking is, that if you’ve ever seen a fanwork on ao3, smiled at fluff, or ogled at a particularly smutty fan art, try to give just a little bit of money to this site. And if not, try to spread the word like I am! I’m not a staff member or anything, I just am a fan that really wants to let this site know how much we as fandoms love and appreciate what they are doing. So please, please, please, reblog this, or click one of the links below to help out!
