If I reply with “oh” I either don’t give a fuck or I feel like i’ve been punched in the throat
Hey guys! This is my friend Alexandria, she’s a scholarship student at Cornell University. She’s a National Merit Scholar, is so smart and very sweet, but right now, she and her mom having a hard time finding the funds to get her back up to New York from Texas. If any of y’all could even donate a little bit to getting her back to school, it would mean so much!
I keep seeing posts that say help Detroiter’s pay water bills (and that’s cool, don’t get me wrong), but where are the posts that say demand the water company cuts the shit back on?
Are people missing the stories of the people who have paid and still have no water?
Y’all don’t really think this is about not paying the bill, right?
Debra Harrell, mom who let her 9-year-old play in the park alone, has been fired from her job at McDonald’s.
This country is sick. Criminalizing WoC no matter what they do.
is there a go fund me for her?
yes, there is a youcaring site for her here
i just got dumped and this was my 3 back to back long term relationship in a row. i feel super burnt out and not quite sure where to go from here. any word of advice?
Block them on every site possible. Block their number if you have to. Cut them out. They’re gone. Assume they’re never coming back. If it feels right send them one last message or call. “Hey I love you and I care but us keeping in contact will not help me grow. Call me if you really need anything but otherwise, take care.” Be nice. After that, stay busy. Go for a run. Pick up an extra shift. Read that book you meant to read but never did. Go grocery shopping with the money you would have use to get them that watch for their birthday. Go to the bar, drink just enough that you aren’t waiting for a text that won’t come. Before you know it you won’t have to drink at all. Smile at the person at work you’ve always had that thing for. When you see their friends, tell them you don’t wanna talk about it. Call your mom or dad. Tell them what happened and try not to ignore it when they say there’s other people out there. Listen to them. Drive 3 hours to see that band with some of your friends.
You’ll be ok, and you’ll find something better soon.
Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
Fuck this guy fuck the self-satisfied look on his face fuck anyone who thought this was a good idea just fuck fuck FUCK
