Tumblr allows me a place to freely follow thousands of blogs filled with things that trigger me. I also can reblog those triggering things to my own space so I can view them often at will and in the same breath I can complain about how bad I feel about said things.

I am pretty sure that, regardless of race, creed, or culture, being a little girl getting your hair done up ranks about 11 on a 10-point scale of Please Momma Don’t.
always reblog. i am a survivor.
Honestly, I WISH my mom would have done this!
My mom wanted nothing to do with my curly hair, so she had it cut short.
My hair was chin length with awful, nasty curly bangs.
She would take the curling iron to my bangs and occasionally burn me.
But she kept my hair short so she would never need to do it. It went crazy and I was called “frizzball” for a long time because it looked so bad.
On the other side, as a teacher of black children, I’m now a master of these little things.

there’s justin bieber
Every year on Canadian Thanksgiving, we perform a ritual to purge ourselves of our rudeness, Bieber absorbs it all. He was never meant to escape, we are sorry.
Tis the season to remind everyone that dropping money in those little red Salvation Army buckets is giving money to an organization whose media relations director (Major Andrew Craibe) once stated in an interview that gay parents deserved to die.
The Salvation Army is staunchly against homosexuals, especially gay parents. They want to help families in need—as long as they’re not headed by homosexuals. So that bell you hear ringing is actually the sound of intolerance and hatred.
I ask you to think twice about giving any money to this organization, and that you share this with friends.
A good reminder. Instead of sticking that dollar in the bucket, here are some worthwhile charities to give it to this holiday season:
You can also donate food to your local shelter. Women’s and homeless shelters often need toiletries and basic clothing.
When I was student teaching, my cooperating teacher’s wife was looking for donations; she works with women’s shelters and pregnant teens. She took a garbage bag full of gently used clothing from me and was SO happy.
Also, Google your local animal shelter. Many SPCAs and humane societies are not actually supported by the big names, so they run purely off of donations. Food, blankets, toys, grooming supplies, and treats are things I see a lot on the lists.
If you have access to an Angel tree, please take one! My college used to have a tree, and my fiance and I would take one little girl and one little boy and go shopping for them. The church we worked at also had a drive that the youth were running where you donated toys, books, and PJs to children staying long-term at hospitals.
There is SO MUCH in your local community that needs your help this holiday.
Leave the red bucket alone and put your money to good, local use.
that’s fifty dollars for a t-shirt
Somehow Tumblr will hate him for this. They’ll find a way.
I like Macklemore more and more every day.
