"Today (7/21/14) the pain is so bad I can barely move. The most I am able to do without assistance is curl into a ball and pass out. I’m throwing up, and no amount of medication (pain relievers or anti nausea) is helping."

I have to ask you guys for help with this. This is 100% legitimate and very serious. She’s a wonderful person and doesn’t deserve to be in agony every day. 

Even if you can’t donate, please reblog this so as many people as possible can see it. 

Even one dollar makes a difference. It all adds up. If every person donated one dollar that would be so much. 

Please, the money would go to a really worthwhile cause. She needs this surgery

Robert Downey Jr and Susan Downey together is maybe the only thing that makes marriage look super awesome. 

I’m going to go pout about being alone

I will never be team Snape. 

Everyone disliked him for the mental anguish he caused, then after the **soo special** reveal, suddenly everyone was all *pulling hair out, tears streaming down face* “IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL!!” *gasp sob choke* “He loved her FOREVER!!! Do you know how long that is??!”

Yeah, he fucking loved her, big whoop. He had no principles of his own. Everything he did was because of this obsession he had with a girl he didn’t end up with. Yeah, he really loved her. How does that mean everyone can suddenly overlook and forgive his constant verbal abuse? I’m sure he damaged Hermione’s confidence. He lowered Neville’s already low self esteem. He probably made the kid suicidal at times. 

He was abusive. Severus Snape was an abuser. Him being capable of love doesn’t change that fact. The side he was on doesn’t change that fact. 

The dismissal of his abuse and sheer adoration for his *oh so tragic and beautiful* story gives me so much disgust for that part of the HP fandom. 

Just another example of how people dismiss verbal abuse as not being the serious kind.

Rubeus Remus Potter. You were named after the only two people at Hogwarts who seemed to give shit about me, because come on who else would I name you after? A verbally abusive dickbag who was in love with my mum and gave me shit all my life and someone who convinced a bunch of children that they needed to be soldiers? What kind of awful aspirations would that make you end up having? Come on son I’m not an idiot…

to believe in a universe as young as six or seven thousand years old is to extinguish the light from most of the galaxy, not to mention from all the hundred billion other galaxies in the observable universe

So, I had a guy hand me his number today and he followed it with, "I mean no disrespect, but here—"

I told him I was flattered but had a long term, serious girlfriend, who I loved very much.

To which he responded, still pleasant and with polite interest,  ”She’s a lucky woman. How long have you been together?”

THAT is how you approach/handle a ‘no’, boys. take fucking notes.

Reblogging because this is freakin’ important

Here’s the thing about being pro choice that people don’t get…
You don’t have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That’s why it’s not called pro abortion. It’s an understanding that you can’t make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It’s pro I’m not the boss of everyone else.

This is important.
