Finding Myself While Losing My Mind

Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover

Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?

Tune into Z’s UStream tonight to watch developments live.

You know that feeling when you’re driving and a cop car pulls up beside you… You’ve done nothing wrong and there’s nothing to wory about, but you get nervous and anxious anyways?

Well…

I went to Pride this weekend with some friends of mine and one of the booths was offering free HIV/Syphilis/gonorrhoea testing. Jeremy (one of the guys I was with) was due for a test, so he decided to go. Greg (another friend) works for the health department and was trying to normalize and destigmatize getting tested as part of safer sex practices, so he convinced Leslie and I to get tested as well. So we did. I’ve never engaged in sexual activity or any other behaviour that would put me at risk for infection. But I got tested anyways to normalize the process and take advantage of the free test.

I just got a call from the health department asking me to call in with my PIN as soon as possible. So, rationally, I know that I’m clean but I’m still freaking out about the results. I know it’s pointless and it makes no sense for me to worry, but I am.

(Not to mention that the companions go from being called “women” to being called “girls” or “psychopaths”…)

Excuse me??????
"TAKE ME BACK, MY LIFE WAS NOTHING BEFORE THE DOCTOR IM THE BAD WOLF LOVE ME DOCTOR LOVE ME YOUR WORLD SHOULD REVOLVE AROUND MEEEE DOCTOR". I REST MY FUCKIN CASE GET OUT

Uh, yes…
Excuse you.

Best part?
These are just a few of the quotes that show just how good she was. All of the companions have their advantages but it is absolutely no secret that there are serious flaws in the way Moffat’s companions are written.

 No, I didn’t mean that. But it was. It was a better life. And I don’t mean all the travelling and seeing aliens and spaceships and things. That don’t matter. The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You know he showed you too. That you don’t just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand. You say no. You have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away, and I just can’t ”

"Well, until he met ME. Because if these are gonna be my last words, then you’re gonna listen. I met the Emperor, and I took the Time Vortex and poured it into his head, and turned him into dust. D’you get that? The God of all Daleks, and I destroyed him! "

I’ve got no A-Levels, no job, no future… but I tell ya what I have got - Jericho Street Junior School - Under Sevens Gymnastic Team - I got the Bronze! ”

And let’s not forget Ten’s thoughts on Rose

I’ve seen fake gods and bad gods and demigods and would-be gods; out of all that, out of that whole pantheon, if I believe in one thing… just one thing… I believe in her.”

Now, this isn’t me trying to be rude or anything like that.
However, stop spreading hate. I mean, really. I’m so tired of seeing Rose hate on my dash because it’s really upsetting. Think about the character in all seriousness before you decide they’re something they’re not.

Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.
She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.
She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.
After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.

I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.
