Dark: I’m really fucking scared of our civilization dying from ecological collapse. What is the point of the tens of thousands of years of art and culture that people have built up if we’re just going to end up dying off, leaving only ruins and plastic.
Ghost: Yep, I do! While I’m not going to go into detail, I’ll give a short summary of what I believe there is after death: There’s a reincarnation cycle and the afterlife is pretty much a waiting period between lives. You can choose to leave the cycle for as long as you want and live in the afterlife. If you choose to stay, you can either rest and recharge in a rather idyllic spirit world or you can basically train to fight with a bunch of other souls pissed about class society in the mortal world, one day planning to raise havoc against the Earth’s ruling class. One last thing, the afterlife is pretty much autonomously run by the dead.
Psychic: Train myself as much as possible to be the best telekinetic ever.
taking a nap is always so risky like when will I wake up? in thirty minutes? in 2 hours? in 7 years?? no one can be sure
U.S. Democrats plan to give Israel an addition $225 million for military spending. The same bill also cuts $1 billion of emergency funds meant to deal with the 50,000 undocumented child migrants held in crowded and unsanitary border facilities.
Israel already received $504 million for the joint U.S.-Israel Missle Defense Program for the Fiscal Year of 2014. That is not including the $3.1 Billion the Obama Administration spent on Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Israel for the Fiscal Year 2014.

Just a few hours ago we were given some devastating news. Our Landlord wants us to leave our home on September 5th, despite his knowledge of our financial situation he wishes to go ahead with demolishing and rebuilding an extension to the kitchen.
We’re going to be frantically looking for places in the area around us but the current government has brought a lot of Anti-DSS [anti benefits] sentiment with them, thus a lot of rented places are not only expensive, but state that they won’t allow people on benefits to live there.
We don’t look good on paper, unemployed Mother and Daughter? Own a cat? Need a garden for therapy reasons? On benefits?
We need money to cover the costs of a deposit, moving van, first month’s rent a new place, first month’s utilities.
I will doubtlessly elaborate on this later with more details, but for now I remain in shock.
Please signal boost, please donate, please do whatever you can to help us because all I have in my bank account is £1100 and that is not enough to move two people, animals, and their stuff.

Gender, Sex, Biology & Trans Women
Many of us understand sex and gender as categorically separate when envisioning trans women. How do we enforce transmisogyny through biological essentialist views of what we define as “sex” when imagining trans women? This storify examines how we enforce physical & ontological gender violence through non-consensual cisnormative separations of sex and gender. Sex is very much a gendered concept with its own colonial and violent baggage.

It is reported that Maya Angelou has likened racial microaggressions or petty humiliations to “small murders,” in contrast to the blatant forms of oppressions called “grand executions,” in which the lethal nature of biased acts is obvious (Greene, 2000). Microaggressions have the lifelong insidious effects of silencing, invalidating, and humiliating the identity and/or voices of those who are oppressed. Although their lethality is less obvious, they nevertheless grind down and wear out the victims.
Studies reveal that a lifetime of microaggressions takes a major toll on the psychological functioning of marginalized groups in our society (Constantine & Sue, 2007; Crocker & Major, 1989; Herek, Gillis, & Cogan, 2009; Lyness & Thompson, 2000; National Academies, 2006; Pierce, 1978, 1988, 1995; Salvatore & Shelton, 2007; Solórzano et al., 2000; Steele, Spencer, & Aronson, 2002; Symanski, 2009). When speaking about the Black experience, for example, microaggressions have been described as “offensive mechanisms used against blacks”; they are “often innocuous,” but the “cumulative weight of their never-ending burden” may result in “diminished mortality, augmented morbidity, and flattened confidence” (Pierce, Carew, Pierce-Gonzalez, & Willis, 1978).
