I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU’RE DOING STOP AND READ THIS

lookintothemind:

Ok Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, (yes groan, but listen up) has this new app out (iPhone and Android) that’s for people in abusive relationships. It’s called Aspire News and it’s disguised as a regular news app, but when you go to the “Help” section of the app, it leads you to domestic violence resources and also has a “Go Button” that when you press it, if you’re in a compromising situation, alerts local authorities as well as local shelters and starts recording everything that is going on.

Now, if you’re looking up resources on the app and your abuser is near, simply press the X button and it brings you to a random news page. Same goes for the actual foundation site.

ITS COMPLETELY FREE
Site

Apps


SPREAD THIS, DONT JUST “LIKE IT”

I failed to mention… I’m taking an indefinite hiatus.

mohandasgandhi:

Those who follow my other blog are already aware of the situation and I don’t care to rehash it again. The fact of the matter is, the delusion and self-righteousness that has plagued particular circles on this website have grown to the point where it’s dangerous to be a female blogger, among other things.

This is not like the last time I received hateful, violent, racist, sexist, and generally bigoted threats. This time around, the community at large embraced those who sent the threats and those who egged it all on. I no longer care to participate in such a vitriolic and abusive community, so I plan on taking my discussions of world issues elsewhere.

I don’t know that I can say I’ll never resume blogging on this site but I have no interest in doing so any time in the near future. To be quite honest, I’m far too disappointed and personally hurt to even think about resuming as a blogger here.

Thanks to those of you who made blogging on Tumblr a fun experience. If you’d like to stay in touch, feel free to e-mail me.

More importantly, please, learn to be kind to one another. Life is far too short to spend your time being a hateful person and intentionally trying to hurt others. Having so much hatred bottled up inside really does eat away at you as a person and it does nothing to improve upon the world or help ease the suffering of others. Instead, it does quite the opposite. Learn to embrace a positive attitude and try to love everyone. It really does make life so much easier and far more pleasant. We’re only here for a painfully short while. Spread as much love and joy as you possibly can because everyone is deserving of such.

This is a sad night for Tumblr indeed. I can’t say we always agreed or got along on everything, but I respect this woman. Intelligent and fiery, she deserves respect, not ignorance and violent threats. If you think this may be directed to you, maybe you should re-evaluate the way you handle arguments. Quit it with the violence.

Also, I sure hope that whoever is behind this is really happy that they have succeeded in removing one of the true voices of reason that remain around here. Tumblr’s capacity for legitimate discourse has been messily injured tonight.

Lost Count: A Love Story.

It breaks my heart to hear the story these kids tell. No humans should have to endure the pain that America’s inner city teens are feeling today. For an 18 year old student to have enough pain buried inside to inspire such a sad story.. I just don’t understand how we got this way.
