What’s impossible to ignore is how many of the individuals diagnosed with mental disorders are essentially anti-authoritarians. This was potentially a large army of anti-authoritarian activists that mental health professionals are keeping off democracy battlefields by convincing them that their depression, anxiety, and anger are a result of their mental illnesses and not, in part, a result of their pain over being in dehumanizing environments.

My sister and I have a headcanon that Jane is Belle and the Beast’s grandaughter.

and I think this further proves our point…

Which would explain why she understand Tarzan, he sort of reminds me of Beast in attitude…. he is sort of a Beast… hmmm. I like your headcanon. 

I agree. Professor Porter said that she got her wild stories from her mother. Belle had wild stories, which turned out to be true, just like Jane’s story about Tarzan was true.

This must be shared, with EVERYONE!

SHE EVEN HAS THE BEASTS EYES

This is not a photo manipulated picture. This is one of many of our fallen soldiers. Their remains are gathered up and bagged and sold as some merchandise like their lives are some sick joke.

With your help, we can end this disgrace and bring these fallen warriors home to their families instead of placed on shelves.

You know what I’m starting to think you guys aren’t even being sarcastic with this anymore

Since it was Munday, I decided to do a small art reference project for myself. And then I decided to make it public with the following notes.

From Left to Right, Top to Bottom:

What NOT to do (front):

  • Don’t chicken wing your arms! Although it might be easier to hold the rifle, you will make yourself a bigger target.
  • Don’t close your one eye! You will lose your depth perception, which is crucial when you are on the move, or are trying to determine how far away your target is
  • Don’t keep your legs haphazardly strewn about. You need to make sure you’re balanced!

What to do (front)

  • Keep both eyes open
  • Bend your elbows downwards and towards the ground to make yourself a smaller target
  • Bend your knees to control the gun’s recoil + be ready to move.

What NOT to do (side)

  • Don’t put the stock above your shoulder
  • Don’t lean back.
  • Both of the above reduce your control over the weapon and may result in a black eye, and the rifle flying backwards and out of your hands.

What to do (side)

  • Bury the stock of the rifle into the meaty part of your shoulder
  • Lean into the gun to keep the gun under control when the recoil of the gun kicks the gun upwards or to the side
  • Bend your knees slightly to lean forward, as well as make yourself a smaller target

Patrol/Relaxed Stance

  • The soldier is relaxed and is most likely moving around.
  • His eyes are searching for possible threats
  • His hands are still on the rifle, even if he has a sling on

Low Ready Stance

  • Possible threat has been detected
  • Entire body shifts towards threat direction
  • Stock is shouldered 
  • Eyes are focused on the possible target
  • Gun barrel is pointed in the target’s general direction, but not directly at the target.

Firing Stance

  • Immediate response
  • Soldier fires off shots while screaming to the other people in his team
  • "CONTACT!" or "THREAT!"

Hermione’s last minute study crunch before exams!

okay I’m gonna reblog this again because last time I didn’t say what I thought about this picture

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. This makes the universe of Harry Potter so much more magical than I ever dreamed it to be. In the movies and books it’s like an average library with magic books, but this picture shows a Hogwarts alive and brimming with magic. The shelves are impossibly tall because you can enchant stuff to help you reach, so why SHOULDN’T the shelves be huge? I love the girls walking on books like stairs, the cat who got caught on a flying book, Hermione sitting on a book like a chair, everyone’s casual confidence in their unbelievable magic because it’s natural to them. It’s part of their everyday lives. I love the Harry Potter world so much that it hurts, and this picture is gorgeous and makes me relive the magic I have loved since I was little.

my parents drunkenly told me one night that i was conceived on the 7th hole of the country club we’re members at. i figured it was just a joke since i play golf, until i saw their initials and a date just about 9 months before my birthday carved into a tree next to the green. they were not kidding…

Dan Cleaves, pictured, frequents bars in the Fan and Shockoe Bottom (though supposedly he has been banned at most of the establishments in the Bottom) seeking out intoxicated women to rape. He has also stalked women, and targets transwomen especially. The provided number, 1-800-838-8238, will connect you to the Virginia Family Violence & Sexual Assault Hotline. 

If you recognize him at a bar, approach the bartender or manager. They can confirm his identity by looking at his ID, and may throw him out as a result of his reputation. 

I have corroborated this information with relevant sources.

Dan Cleaves was arrested Wednesday in Henrico. He is awaiting extradition to Maryland where he will face seven counts of sexually assaulting women in an attempt to give them HIV. 

For now, it looks like we no longer need to worry about him. 

Cleaves is now out on bond, possibly in the Richmond area. As of two weeks ago, he was still preying on women. Share the information and be prepared to intervene if you see him at a bar- if you’re uncomfortable intervening yourself, ask the staff or, at this point, call the police.
