I’m so scared right now. 
I’ve got a Planned Parenthood appointment in the morning, and I don’t have the money for transportation out there. It’s going to be about two hours by train, and then another hour by bus it looks like. That’s not even taking into account things like the actual visit fees that I don’t have on hand. I’m really hoping that they can help me with what I know is wrong, and what I hope it isn’t.
I’ve got less than 50$ in my account and the lady on the phone said that I wouldn’t be seen if I couldn’t pay the visit fee up front. I don’t know if that’s real or not but that….that scares me. That money is all I have for the rest of the week, until I get paid on Friday, leaving me with no money to get to/from work this week. I hate this. 
If anyone has anything to spare, I’d be forever grateful. For just transportation to and from work even. I’m okay on food (I work in a bakery, they do feed us there) and am waiting on my w2s to come in to do my taxes. I can pay people back when the taxes come in. http://ift.tt/2jOY52S
To everyone who has already donated to keep my broke ass alive: Thank you. Y’all are complete angels and I wish I could hug each and every one of you. I hate to have to keep asking, but I’m not going to get very far in the next however long if I don’t.

An Article from Neena Susan Thomas

“Through a rapist’s eyes. A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interview…ed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:

1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle. They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid, or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.

2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who’s clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.

3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.

4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.

5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.

6] Number three is public restrooms.

7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.

8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.

9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas,or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.

10] Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.

POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:

1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk: can’t believe it is so cold out here, we’re in for a bad winter. Now that you’ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.

2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.

3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.

4] If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and armpit or in the upper inner thigh – HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.

5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.

6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.

7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, go with your instincts. You may feel little silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.

FINALLY, PLEASE REMEMBER THESE AS WELL ….

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do it.

2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans : if a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you…. chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side,put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU CLOSE the DOORS , LEAVE.

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:

a. Be aware: look around your car as someone may be hiding at the passenger side , peek into your car, inside the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. ( DO THIS TOO BEFORE RIDING A TAXI CAB) .

b. If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.

c. Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better safe than sorry.

This, this is an insult and, furthermore, someone fucking with what belongs to him. This is not going to go unpunished. (And Graves, in the meantime, is being taken care of by his uncle, because you do not just get over torture like that and I imagine that Grindelfuck broke his legs to make sure he couldn’t get away or something similar. Jerry can’t just heal him because I headcanon that one of the trade offs for being turned is losing your magic if you’re a witch or a wizard).

Yes. Oh, yes. This is lovely!

The fact that the Graves family is haunted by a vampire isn’t really a secret, per se. It’s more along the lines of personal information that they tend to keep quiet - their ongoing feud with their batshit-insane many-times great-uncle is private, that’s all, and, well, family is family. All it would take is Seraphina absently commenting on how the days were getting shorter, best of luck with your uncle, and Grindelwald would immediately start researching - he can’t take the chance and an unknown relative of Graves’ will show up and spoil everything. From there - well. Graves does have a family portrait labeled ‘Uncle Jerry’ (he mainly throws darts at it when he’s angry before almost guiltily charming it whole again, it’s a family antique), and it wouldn’t take long to figure out exactly who the man is. 

Jerry would be insulted - listen, cupcake, the only person who can stalk, wound, and horribly traumatize my family is me! Graves, meanwhile, is relatively sure that he’s hallucinating - after all, he’d anticipate Uncle Jerry walking into the sunlight before he would every spoon-feed his many-times great-nephew chicken soup before dragging him to a no-Maj hospital.

Jerry, for his part, is extremely cheered the first time he walks into Graves’ hospital room only to run into a line of faintly glowing runes scrawled on the floor in an hasty ward. He only has a moment to see his distant relative glaring at him from the bed before Graves snarling the activating word; the vampire is then messily blasted backwards as Graves begins hastily chanting a dedication ritual meant to encompass the entire damn hospital. 

Jerry also takes a minute or two to drop in on President Seraphina - who is momentarily taken aback at the family resemblance before the knowledge of just who and what is talking to her registers and she goes for her wand - to tell her the name of the hospital where he stashed Percival Graves; he then smiles at her - with all his teeth - before mentioning that he’s going to be paying Grindelwald a little visit…

Hmmm, I want to say that it is something that started in their past lives, but none of them had the courage to act on. 

Now, they have a second chance.

Exactly what I was thinking. I’ve always interpreted the Wizarding world as being much more open in terms of LGBTQIA people (it’s blood purity that’s their big issue) and so they have numerous spells, enchantments, rituals, and potions tailored for them. Polyamory is no big deal either. You have three, four, five partners in a committed relationship who want to have a child together? Here’s a ritual that will make it so that said child is biologically all of yours.

Hi guys.

Some of you maybe remember me. A couples months ago I wrote here asking you for help. That’s why this post may looks familiar for you.

My parents kick me out after they found out I’ve fallen in love with a girl. I was working in their place and I lost that job too.

My boyfriend at that moment told everyone I know about this and spread some lies. He took my dog and a lot of my stuff. He stalked me. He found my tumblr as well and I had to make a new account.

I live in my friend house but it’s really small so I slept on the floor for the last five months. I don’t want to bother them anymore. My friend’s mom is sick and on wheelchair. And my ex knows where I live and I’m scared of that because I really don’t know what he can do.

I finally get a part time job at the supermarket and a month ago a night job in the bar. But two days ago I lost the first job because the woman who worked there came back after maternity leave.

Finally i found  a cheap place to rent but they want money for five months of rent in advance.

I saved a little in those months but I still need 1500$ for that. I’m afraid to post it because last time my ex found it and threaten me with police (his father is a big one in the police) for taking money. He told me he will find a way to make that illegal. But I have no other choice.

Last time you helped me guys a lot. I can’t thank you enough. If you would spare few dollars this time too, please send it via paypal. You can choose any currency you want! My email:  anne.wak@onet.eu

I HAVE A WEEK TO PAY FOR THE RENT. EVEN A DOLLAR IS A LOT FOR ME.

Thank you so much for any help!

EDIT. SUNDAY 22TH (610 NOTES) I STILL NEED AT LEAST 350$. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I will say this. 

Despite the evil that is Trashfire McBabyHands, and the cretins that he has gathered about him, we must all do this. 

We must protect Barron. 

Now I don’t mean in the traditional sense. Barron is a young white man whose father just became the most powerful man in the worldTM. 

But if you haven’t been paying attention to that poor kid, then you haven’t seen that he’s completely freaked out and overwhelmed by this whole thing. 

Whether that is due to, as some have said, being on the autism spectrum, I don’t know. Frankly it ain’t none of my business. 

But. 

Regardless, Barron is woke. Not in the same way a lot of activists are, but he’s perfectly aware that this shit is bananas and you can see it on his face in pretty much any picture or video he’s in. 

We must protect Barron because he is a child and even though he is a child in privileged position, he is vulnerable now in a way he never was before, surrounded by hate speech and violent rhetoric. 

We must protect Barron because we can’t just leave him on Tattooine with his uncle for ten or fifteen years. That kid has to be our Luke Skywalker. With support, luck, and a touch of the Force, he will help us defeat his father.
