"At Rio Americano High School in Sacramento CA, a student named Dejza, was violently assaulted by a vice principal, Matt Collier, for attempting to take back a piece of art with a political message that the administration didn’t like. She was put in a chokehold and slammed against the desk. When she tried to resist this unlawful abuse of authority, she was slammed and held onto the ground. Matt Collier laid on top of her, crushing her with his weight. Dejza could not breathe, and begged Collier to get off of her. Luckily, another faculty member came in and ended the situation. Dejza went to see a doctor for severe whiplash, and yesterday was her first day of physical therapy. Despite this being blatantly wrong and illegal, the administration has put her on suspension for resisting, and Collier was not disciplined. On the fifth day of her suspension, she will attend a meeting held by bias members of the administration to determine if she will be expelled.

They have tried to silence anyone who speaks out on social media, but today we have gathered in person for a silent sit-in protest.

Dejza has been wronged, and brutalized, and now she is receiving punishment. They’ve tried to silence her. They’ve tried to silence us.” -Grant Wright 

One of my friends Grant posted this on facebook and even though im not in Sacramento I want to help. This girl has been mistreated by a full grown man who may never be punished. I want to help spread awareness. So please, spread this around. Let people know that this is NOT okay. The more support we have, the better. 

i’m so proud to have been a part of this today but you guys please please please please reblog/spread this around any way you possibly can it’s so important and her story needs to be heard by people outside of our city because what this man did is so so so incredibly far from okay

arrest Matt Collier. protect and redeem Dejza.

PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS AND STAY AWAY FROM THIS SHOP, IT IS RUN BY A FRAUD.This is kind of a long story but if you’re part of the cosplay community and especially if you buy costumes online, this is important for you.
I first got in touch with Wollstone Crafts, run soley by one woman named Amber Gleason, on Etsy.com. She advertised that she made high end costumes. Her shop was really new at this point but from what I could see she had a couple of good reviews with photographic evidence of items received, so I decided to have a costume made with her.
Amber does not take paypal as payment, she only accepts checks and money orders, which is understandable because of paypal’s fees and their reputation for randomly freezing funds. However this is what is has fucked me and will probably fuck you too.I got in touch to have a costume made in November of 2013. We agreed prior to purchase and payment that the costume would be done by late March of 2014, so that it would have just enough time to arrive and be tested for my convention in mid-April. This was accepted by Amber who assured me the time frame was perfect and added the deadline to the transaction description, viewable here. The purchase in total was 780 dollars. It is now September 2014. I don’t have my costume, and Amber has not responded to my messages for over 3 months.Not only is my costume SIX MONTHS overdue on top of its 4 month construction period, but Amber’s communication skills are so awful that when she WAS keeping in touch, I barely ever knew what was going on or how much progress had been made. I asked on 3 different occasions for pictures of progress, she ignored all 3. She takes WEEKS at a time to respond to questions, and she frequently LIED to me.I cannot count how many times I had her give me a date she promised the costume would go out, or a date that she planed on getting in touch with me in greater detail, and nothing would end up happening. She does not even take a moment to explain to you what went wrong with the prior date, she just gets back in touch another few weeks later and supplies you a new date that will also never be met. I have had at least a dozen promises broken, unexaggerated, and the progress on my order changes seemingly at random from “Just one or two stitches away!” to “DELAYED”.I am not the only one having issues with her. I have gone onto her facebook page to try to speak with her only to see comments and posts from other customers complaining about their situations, all strikingly similar to mine; that their orders are overdue and their messages are being ignored. The angriest commenters get deleted from the page, but these are some that stayed up for whatever reason:
However what I previously assumed to just be very poor customer service, has recently turned into suspicions of theft and fraud. Along the course of the July month I began messaging Amber very bluntly, saying I needed my costume to be sent out promptly. This was mainly fueled by the fact that she kept telling me she was “too overloaded” with previous orders that were backed up, and yet I saw her advertising that she was still willing to take on new orders, as well as working on other personal projects despite mine being as late as it was. I felt I had waited long enough and suffered from extremely poor service, so I messaged her a total of 5 times along the entire month of July telling her I needed the costume sent out then or not at all. None of my messages were responded to, despite Amber apparently having enough free time to post memes and youtube videos on her shop’s facebook wall. On August 3rd I made a post publicly on her wall, reminding her of the 4 months the costume was overdue by that point and asking her why I was being ignored, hoping that a little public embarrassment would force her to finally acknowledge me. I was extremely civil and the post broke no facebook rules, and yet I woke up the next morning to find my post deleted, my account blocked from further posting, and my messages STILL unresponded too. Her etsy shop has also since then been deleted. In the meantime three people and counting on facebook have gotten in touch with me directly over private message, saying they saw my post and that they are all in the exact same position and have given up hope of ever seeing their money or their orders. One girl in particular has an order even more overdue than mine. Here are some snippets of what she sent to me:
To reaffirm: Amber has not sent me a single word on my nearly thousand dollar order in over 3 months.
I now have to get in touch with the police and my bank to find a way to get my money back, but I doubt I will ever see my money again or my order. I got in touch with Amber telling her I was going to the police, she did not respond. I also got in touch with her before making this post, she still has not responded. I have a lot of evidence on my side, including my money order receipt, transaction record and numerous chat logs, but Amber lives in another country, has deleted her etsy shop, and I keep finding multiple different addresses and names for her so I have no idea where she even lives for sure. Amber Gleason took my money and ran, she’s probably going to get away with it and the worst part is she continues to operate online and continuously lures in more people.
Do yourselves a huge favor, avoid Wollstone Crafts and Amber Gleason like the plague and please signal boost this. I don’t want anyone else to have to go through the awful anxiety and disappointment she has caused me.Amber Gleason also goes by the names Amber Kusanagi, and Amber Edia, however I believe Gleason to be her legal name since it was who the money order was written to.
Wollstone Crafts also sometimes goes by “Alchemic Devotion” or “Runaway Couture”. She also has multiple different addresses in California, in the San Diego area. She clearly goes by different names, addresses, and appearances, so if you’re ordering from the San Diego area PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL!
This is her shops facebook page
This is her personal facebook that was recently sent to me by another angry customer, because to both of our shock and disgust it has been regularly updated during our attempts to message her.
IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON AMBER GLEASON PLEASE SEND IT TO ME AS I AM CURRENTLY WORKING WITH POLICE IN HER AREA AND I HAVE YET TO EVEN PIN POINT WHICH OF THESE MULTIPLE ADDRESSES IS HER TRUE LOCATION. A PHONE NUMBER WOULD ALSO HELP A SUPER LOT!

I have finally hit my breaking point. For as long as I can remember I have endured my mother’s abuse, whether it is verbal, emotional, or as seen here physical. I can expect some act of violence on a daily basis, and her beating me is not an usual occurrence, but today something snapped. My mother did this unprovoked, and this time she didn’t stop. Usually it’s bad for a little while and then she’s done, today it went on for what seemed like forever. At a certain point I decided I was going to do something I never do, call the police. You see, my mother is a highly respected and very well known person where I live. She is on the board of ed, worked for CPS for many years, and is close personal friends with people like the local chief of police, director of our local CPS unit, and so on. I always knew that calling wouldn’t go anywhere and just upset her more, but today I had to try. While she was kicking me I found my opportunity, and somehow managed to get away from someone more than twice my size. I ran as fast as I could, knocking things over behind my, trying to find a phone. I dialed and they listened and my mother proceeding to beat me over it, while I screamed for help. For the second time today, I managed to get away from her and ran to my room. I barely had enough time to lock my door, before she starting trying to get it, to the point that she ripped my door off the frame. I decided I was going to stay locked in there, until the police came. The past few months I have been collecting evidence against her, voice recordings, pictures like these, and videos of her violence, so they couldn’t dispute what was going on. But I was dead wrong. 

When the officer finally came up to my room, I attempted to tell him my side of the story, but before I could get a sentence out he silenced me. HE told me that this was my mothers house, and I needed to live by her rules. If I didn’t she had the right to punish me. He also told me to be tankful for her, because he wanted to press assault charges against me. finally, he refused, despite my begging, for him to take me to a shelter for teens. 

I am utterly disgusted by the injustice that occurred today. I pray there is no one else out there who is living in such a situation. I am not sure exactly what I am getting out of writing this, except maybe that it’s just nice to be able to open up about this, when I have had to keep it a secret my whole life. idk. sorry for posting such heavy shit. 

Signal boost the fuck out of this

Hello!! I’m in need of a HUGE signal boost right now (and maybe a big reporting session) because my best friend is being blackmailed by her ex boyfriend. 

I’m not exactly sure what I’m supposed to put here, but I feel like this should be a warning for anyone who knows him and just a general informative thing. Jacob lives in Australia and is 16 years of age. They’ve had a very unhealthy relationship and he’s threatened sending out her nudes multiple times. Jacob is very manipulative and emotionally abusive towards her and even ends up pulling me and her other friends into not being able to do anything because it’ll end up hurting her. He’s made around 7 Twitter accounts to contact my friend in the times that she was trying to get out of the relationship.

In the picture above, he’s posted her nudes and threatened her.

ALL IM ASKING IS FOR YOU TO REPORT HIM ON EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING:

His Twitter accounts all start with @/neinthousand but the one that was most recently used was: @/neinthousand12 (but it was apparently deleted)

His Facebook account is:Jacob R Hynes, and he has more but I am unable to find them. They’re under Jacob Hynes and the like.

********** UPDATES!!! **********

First, we thought we had a compromise. 

Then this happened not even a minute after:

PLEASE CONTINUE REBLOGGING THIS. My friend is only 15 years of age and this is absolutely horrible. We’re getting ahold of local authorities but if you see the pictures anywhere (namely twitter) REPORT THEM IMMEDIATELY.

Sterek Long Distance AU (part one | part two).

.

"Did you mean it?"

It’s the first thing that leaves Stiles’ mouth, once the tiny pixels of Derek’s screen make up his face. Cheeks all flushed and splotchy, the soft pink of his tongue darting out to lick his lips in that tell-tale nervous habit of Stiles.

"Mean what?" Derek replies, elbows bracing on his knees as he leans forward in his chair. His laptop is sitting on the smooth bedsheets of his mattress, a healthy distance away from his hands that keep curling into themselves because reaching out to touch is not an option. Instead he watches Stiles’ mouth screw in discontent at the way Derek’s eyes regard him teasingly. Like this is a game, just their normal banter.

But then Stiles’ brows furrow tight and his mouth sets in a pinched line, small grooves digging in at the corners.

"No," he says sharply, "you don’t get to do that." and Derek’s face takes on a stuttered loss of confusion. "You don’t get to make light of this, Derek, not when I do you even know what that message did to me? When you said that no, you don’t get to act like this is a joke.” his voice falters, cracks a little, for a moment letting all of that seventeen-year old vulnerability spill forth, all soft and breakable and so so young.

"Okay," Derek whispers, and it’s meant to come out stronger but god he can barely breathe, chest all tight and squeezing painfully around his ribs.

Stiles gives a slow nod, pupils blown wide. Runs his tongue along his bottom lip again, watches Derek’s mouth when Derek catches the movement with his eyes.

"So if I ask" he says and Derek says "Yes," and then "Just

"Will you come to prom with me?"

It’s said so softly, like Stiles is holding his breath too, but it sounds so loud in the still-quiet of Derek’s apartment, shatters through the staccato echo of his own breathing.

Yes,” and god it sounds like seven months of waiting and alone and relief in just that single word.

There’s a moment, where Stiles’ face doesn’t seem to register having heard Derek’s reply at all. He’s all crouched into the screen, breathing open and heavy.

"Wow," he breathes out, soft and reverent, like it’s the best thing that Stiles has ever been told. He laughs, a surprised burst from his mouth and he tries to smother it with his hand, long fingers tugging at the delicate skin of his face and distorting his features when he lets his hand drag away. "Wow," he says again, all teeth and stupid wide grin that makes Derek smile back, lips pulling back so hard it hurts.

"So you’re coming back, yeah?" Stiles says, "Just for prom, I know, but oh my god, Derek, you’re coming back.”

Derek nods, can’t seem to get that grin off of his own face, and he can’t seem to say anything in return. Because he’s afraid that if he does it might be something stupid like I miss you or god i’ve been going insane without you or what he’s been wanting to say since that last call, something utterly inane and perfect like I love you.

And Stiles’ chin jolts forward with another startled laugh, his shoulders shaking with the mirth tumbling from his bright bright eyes. He tilts his head almost fondly as he looks at Derek.

"I love you too, you ridiculous idiot. And don’t even think of booking a hotel because you’re staying in our guest room, or at least that’s where we’ll let Dad think you’re staying. I’m going to spend every minute of your time here all over you.”

(Derek purchases a plane ticket that evening.

It’s one way.)

I wish I could simply urge the media to treat Melissa McCarthy just like any other female actress, but that’s precisely the problem: we nitpick women’s bodies in the celebrity press — even in publications of “quality.” Lena Dunham gets called fat by Howard SternandJoan Rivers, on top of reviewerscalling her “blobby”andsuggestingthat someone who looks like her could never snag a guy as hot at Patrick Wilson. I can only imagine the reaction if McCarthy’s TV show,Mike & Molly, required her to wear anything skimpier than a cardigan and slacks. And yet, the press still finds cringe-worthy ways to bring up her weight, beyond the (annoying and unnecessary) “curvy” euphemism.
If you’re writing about McCarthy or any other celebrity whose body falls outside Hollywood’s typical size-zero-to-four spectrum, consider the following a guide to how not to discuss their physique, if you absolutely must. The takeaway: stop focusing on what makes McCarthy different physically, and stop asking her about it in interviews (though kudos to her for routinely making the response humorous). There’s more to say about what makes her unique as an actor and a comedian. And ifLouie didn’t convince you of this, allow me to reiterate: if you’re an overweight woman, you are all too aware that society defines you by that fact — no size reminder necessary. People didn’t suddenly forget what Melissa McCarthy looks like, so it’s really OK if you skip that bit.

The takeaway: stop focusing on what makes McCarthy different physically, and stop asking her about it in interviews (though kudos to her for routinely making the response humorous). There’s more to say about what makes her unique as an actor and a comedian. And ifLouie didn’t convince you of this, allow me to reiterate: if you’re an overweight woman, you are all too aware that society defines you by that fact — no size reminder necessary. People didn’t suddenly forget what Melissa McCarthy looks like, so it’s really OK if you skip that bit.

“…using the word “man” meaning “humans” is supposedly sexist, despite its original meaning,”

This article that implies the word mankind isn’t actually sexist y’all…

"SUPPOSEDLY sexist" ?! "Despite it’s original meaning”? You mean back in the 1300’s?

Languages change and evolve. For hundreds of years “man” has meant “male human” so if you’re using the word “mankind” to describe the entire human population of the earth then yeah, fellow human, it’s sexist. Would you use the word “womankind” to describe the entire population of the earth? Didn’t think so. 

Also, how did “men” go from meaning all humans to just male humans? The article doesn’t really explain that, but if a word that used to mean all humans was suddenly just applied to males, what is that saying about females? Less-than-human? Property, perhaps?
