I have a box of my exboyfriends’ hair, but I keep it for curses.

Two other women, also breast cancer survivors, said their husbands left them after they were diagnosed. Both had to have mastectomies (in case anyone doesn’t know, this is the surgical operation to remove one or both breasts).

The first woman said her husband told her that he would rather see her dead than see her lose her breasts. The second woman had her operation and waited all day to be picked up by her husband, who never arrived. By nightfall, one of the nurses offered to give her a ride, and she came home to find the house empty.

Obviously, these are extreme cases of a man’s reaction to his wife’s breast cancer, but this is what I see when I see the “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets. I see love of the body parts, not the person being treated—not the patient, not the victim, not the survivor.

A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.

Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.

Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.

Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.

The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?

Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?

Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

I think people need to realize that it’s okay to like stuff and not have a deep reason for it

You can like a character because they’re cute, not because you identify with them
You can like a ship because you think they look good together, not because of a deep emotional bond

You can like a song because it’s catchy, not because of the meaningful lyrics

If you like it that’s okay, you don’t have to have deep reason or meaning behind it

My favorite thing about feminism is that you literally only have to say the word and BOOM done, men will literally prove your point FOR you

originofhappy asked: I really enjoy how you call out people who say they have wolf dogs. An ex-friend of mine had a "half-wolf" dog when it was actually just a tall husky. People don't realize that by stating their mutts are "wolf dogs" they are actually endangering their lives.

naturepunk:

I’m sure many people already know about my foster pups, Diamond and Shentea, who were submitted to a shelter by a ‘wolfdog’ breeder. Because he surrendered them with ‘wolfdog’ marked down as the breed, the shelters was put in an awkward situation - they cannot legally adopt out wolfdogs, and they didn’t want the pups to live the rest of their lives out in a shelter kennel. Euthanasia was imminent. But instead, they contacted Songdog Rescue, who contacted me, and I’ve been fostering them ever since. 

The kicker here is that Diamond and Shentea have NO wolf in them whatsoever. To believe such is utterly laughable, as these two weigh about 45 pounds and are nothing short of fluffy balls of cuddles and kisses. But because some careless person decided to call them ‘wolfdogs’ they were nearly euthanized. I cried on the long drive home after picking them up, simply thinking about how close they’d been to meeting their untimely ends, all because someone dropped an uneccary wolfdog-bomb on them.

Loving your body isn’t conceited

Feeling proud of yourself doesn’t make you a narcissist

Giving yourself credit for something won’t make you lose motivation to keep bettering yourself

Caring about your own happiness isn’t shallow

Putting your recovery first isn’t selfish

Daniele Watts, an African-American actress who has starred in Hollywood films such as Django Unchained, was “handcuffed and detained” by Los Angeles police officers after being mistaken for a prostitute for kissing her white husband in public.
