    Are You Being Gaslighted?

    Gaslighting may not involve all of these experiences or feelings, but if you recognize yourself in any of them, give it extra attention.

    1. You are constantly second-guessing yourself.
    2. You ask yourself, “Am I too sensitive?” a dozen times a day.
    3. You often feel confused and even crazy at work.
    4. You’re always apologizing to your mother, father, boyfriend, boss.
    5. You wonder frequently if you are “good enough” girlfriend/wife/employee/friend/daughter.
    6. You can’t understand why, with so many apparently good things in your life, you aren’t happier.
    7. You buy clothes for yourself, furnishings for your apartment, or other personal purchases with your partner in mind, thinking about what he would like instead of what would make you feel great.
    8. You frequently make excuses for your partner’s behavior to friends and family.
    9. You find yourself withholding information from your friends and family so you don’t have to explain or make excuses.
    10. You know something is terribly wrong, but you can never quite express what it is, even to yourself.
    11. You start lying to avoid the put-downs and reality twists.
    12. You have trouble making simple decisions.
    13. You think twice before bringing up seemingly innocent topics of conversation.
    14. Before your partner comes home, you run through a checklist in your head to anticipate anything you might have done wrong that day.
    15. You have the sense that you used to be a very different person—more confident, more fun-loving, more relaxed.
    16. You start speaking to your husband through his secretary so you don’t have to tell him things you’re afraid might upset him.
    17. You feel as though you can’t do anything right.
    18. Your kids begin trying to protect you from your partner.
    19. You find yourself furious with people you’ve always gotten along with before.
    20. You feel hopeless and joyless.

    Police shoot teenage special-needs girl within 20 seconds of arriving to ‘help’

    On June 3rd, 2014, the Serrano family was having difficulty with a young female family member who suffers from a mental illness and depression. Yanira Serrano-Garcia, 18, had apparently gone off of her medication and became agitated and hard to control.

    “[Yanira] wanted to be normal. She wanted to stop taking her medication, and I get it. Sometimes when my feet hurt I just want to be normal. I don’t want to take pills. I get her…all we want is justice,” said a friend of Yanira’s during a community march. 

    “Sadly, they mistook her for something she didn’t do, and a cop decided to get his gun out when he could have gotten out his taser, his pepper spray,” she said.

    “She has special needs and we just want answers,” said Yanira’s brother, Tiny Serrano. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”

    I feel like I reblog this kind of stuff every single day… Same story, different names. And police always use the same fucking excuses because they’re trained in how to loophole the law.

  • "And there is another American profession that has a significantly more alarming problem with domestic abuse. I’d urge everyone who believes in zero tolerance for NFL employees caught beating their wives or girlfriends to direct as much attention—or ideally, even more attention—at police officers who assault their partners. Several studies have found that the romantic partners of police officers suffer domestic abuse at rates significantly higher than the general population. And while all partner abuse is unacceptable, it is especially problematic when domestic abusers are literally the people that battered and abused women are supposed to call for help."

    destroy this new idea that a woman can’t be strong if she cries over a man she’s lost. destroy the idea that you have to be cold and emotionally detached in order to be a strong woman

    vagina’s are able to stretch wide enough to give birth to a fucking baby and then return to it’s original size but of course being penetrated by that grass blade you call a penis is what’s going to make it “loose”

    Uhh. The baby doesnt come out of where the penis goes in…

    stay in school y’all

    i hate to be the bearer of bad news but the vagina and the vagina are, in fact, the same thing
