Ok, I know Joan Rivers was very problematic and such but you shouldn’t be celebrating her death. Yes, she died on Beyonce’s birthday - still shouldn’t be celebrating Joan Rivers death. Please respect her friends/family. Thank you. 

A not for her friends and family, not her. She was not a good person and im not saying that she deserved to die, but i am saying that she’s dead and i dont mourn her.

Okay guys, I’m going to get serious for a minute. If you’re not in Ireland at the moment, you may not know about the situation regarding the laws on abortion. It is completely illegal, even in cases of rape, incest, fatal foetal abnormality, and other such things. Women have died in this country because inability to have an abortion put strain on their health. A woman who wasn’t even Irish begged for an abortion because her child was about to die in the womb. The complications arising from her case resulted in her contracting septicaemia, organ failure, and tragically dying. In 1992, the X Case took place, involving a 14-year-old girl, knowns only as x, who became pregnant after being raped. Instead of offering help to the girl, who because suicidal, they prevented her from travelling out of the country for an abortion.Any Irish woman* who needs an abortion has to travel to the UK, which means if you don’t have the money, you’re out of luck. What does the Irish Government have to say about this?Well, recently the UN confronted the Government about our abortion laws, pointing out that we were breaking Human Rights laws, and that the Government treated Irish women* like vessels.Joan Burton, the Tánaiste, said that there will be no referendum on abortion in this Government’s lifetime. They’re literally saying that they don’t care enough to rectify Human Rights breaches.I am NOT a vessel, and neither are you. Make your voice heard. Come to the March for Choice on the 27th of September in Dublin. Never give up, never stay quiet.

This has only been up since last night and LADS, the NOTES. Keep spreading the word!

I am Canadian, and I’m sorry to say until I read this I didn’t know anything about what you women were going through.This is completely disgusting, I can’t even believe what you’re going through.And I wish I could come out there and march with you.But I don’t have the money so I can’t.But I’m going to keep reblogging this, and sharing it. And I hope all my followers will too.This is important people, no matter what gender you are or what country you’re in, everyone deserves their basic human rights, and we need to stand together until this becomes a reality.So please spread the word for these women.

Be lucky you’re in Ireland though, the situation is 10X worse the the “progressive” United States. Just look at places like Texas or Ohio. It’s fucking inhumane here.

Okay Leigh, I don’t think you understand what the words “outright ban” mean.
Ireland has an outright ban on abortion.  That means that under ZERO circumstances can a person who is pregnant obtain an abortion for ANY reason.
The state of Texas does NOT have an outright ban on abortion.  Yes, you have to jump through legal hoops and consent to various invasive procedures, and it is very expensive to do so, but it is technically possible.
- Number 1

did u srsly just pull a “imma let u finish but the usa has it SO much worse” shut the hell up

also Northern Ireland, technically part of the UK recently allowed abortion, but only under certain strict guidelines, practically making it impossible to get one.

Reasons abortion should be fully covered on all insurance plans:

  • If you can’t afford an abortion, you definitely can’t afford a pregnancy
  • If you can’t afford an abortion, and are forced to carry a pregnancy to term anyway, you sure as hell can’t afford a child

Who the fuck do you think you’re really protecting here?

Another point (though I’m not sure how I feel about covering abortion under insurance) is that the foster care system and adoption system are both completely overrun with children. There is not enough willing parents for them all. It’d be different if every family adopted one or two children but, come on, how often does that happen?

  • Me: This older generation pisses me off so much
  • Therapist: Why?
  • Me: Because when I was growing up, we were forcefed the idea that if we didn't want to be 'flipping burgers at McDonalds,' then we'd better go to college.
  • Therapist: And?
  • Me: And now we've all gone to college, have degrees, can't get a damn job, and the same people that told us to go to college call us entitled assholes because we refuse to flip burgers
  • Therapist: Touche

A guy is taking his girlfriend to prom. He waits in the ticket line for a really long time but gets them. He goes to rent a limo. The rental line is really long but he eventually does it. He goes to buy her flowers. The line at the florist is really long but eventually he gets the flowers. At prom, she asks him to go get punch. He goes to the refreshment table and there’s no punchline.

you’ve got to be kidding me

I am in physical pain

afro-dominicano:

I hate commentary that assumes white people even have anything worthwhile to say in “opening a national race discussion”. Like what do you have to say over what I have experienced? What makes you think your thoughts on this are so much more important that it has weight over the millions of other…

If you believe what you say, then you may also believe that white people are the reason why Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans etc.. have any rights at all in the United States or any other area where there has been a race issue. Why shouldnt white people have a say? It’s not like racism is a one way street, as you just illustrated perfectly. By saying that a group of people aren’t allowed to have a say in an issue, you are saying the same thing that racist white people have been saying for decades. White people may not have the same issues that blacks, hispanics, asians, native americans, etc. have but they are not without their own racial inequalities and slurs. Don’t be so self important. There are more people out there than just you with more problems than just what you have experienced. The only way to change something for the better and for good is to fight together on the same issues. More voices equal more power. It shouldnt matter what ethnicity or race the speakers are.

JKR has released new Lockhart info AND IT’S ALL I’VE EVER WANTED TBH I’VE BEEN WAITING LIKE 2 YEARS FOR THIS DAY

Albus “I’ll give kids a year of substandard education for a vital class to get someone back for angering two of my friends” Dumbledore.


He wiped the memory of Albus’ friends. Remember that that is how he was able to take the credit for all the exploits of other wizards. Who knows what he did to them. He could have completely screwed themselves up. (Not saying that he should have invited him into a place as “safe” as Hogwarts, but still)
