“I was just trying to get to my sister’s house,” cried one 23-year-old, who lay sobbing on a lawn.
He said he was walking home when officers approached him and sprayed tear gas in his face and peppered him with rubber bullets.
“These m———— came out of the cut and sprayed me in the face like this is a f—– video game or something.” the man said. His friends pleaded with an ambulance to hurry, and a neighbor offered to drive him to the hospital.
“I don’t need a hospital,” the man yelled. “This is my home.”"
Yesterday, a teacher at my daughter’s preschool told me that she saw two boys and a girl spinning the knobs of a play oven. Boy #1 says: “I’m a pilot! I’m flying a plane.’ Boy #2 says: “Me too!” The girl is quiet, so the teacher says to her: “What about you, are you a pilot?” The 3 year old girl replies: “I can’t be a pilot. I’m a pilot’s wife.”
So what do you think has happened in this little girl’s short life to make her believe it’s more likely that she would be a pilot’s wife than a pilot?"
I don’t have words for how much it annoys me when people say lifting won’t make girls bulky. As someone with a large frame it has made me bulky. And I have the capacity to be bulkier than 90% of the female population. And I am okay with that and have grown to love my body. So if everyone could stop equating bulky to bad or manly that would be great.
Sooo one of my mom’s colleagues and her kids went missing a few days ago, and like we didn’t know she was missing until we saw a missing notice posted on Facebook
… She’s not actually missing tho, she’s in hiding. From the exact same people who posted that missing notice, and who she definitely doesn’t want to be found by.
So a reminder to please please check this kind of thing before you share missing notices.
Ughhhh okay I work in a law enforcement field where we deal with a lot of missing persons and here’s why I don’t share things like this without a link to a LE press release or major national news outlet. IF IT DOES NOT HAVE A SOURCE, YOU COULD BE ENDANGERING SOMEONE’S LIFE.
LET ME REPEAT: IF IT DOES NOT HAVE A VERIFIABLE, LEGITIMATE SOURCE YOU COULD BE ENDANGERING SOMEONE’S FUCKING LIFE.
I know you think you are helping. I know you think a “signal boost” is the right thing to do. BUT PLEASE VERIFY BEFORE YOU SHARE.
Double goes for missing minors!!!!!!!!Predators and abusers put out things like this to get information on the whereabouts of their victims.
And don’t forget that just because a person is disabled doesn’t mean they aren’t being abused and trying to escape their abusers. In fact, disabled people are even more likely to be abused.
Very important addition.
