The whole “it gets better” phrase is a complete crock of shit.
If I was a teenager I could have bought it. I mean you haven’t even begun to experience life as an adult. You’re thinking it could get better.
Now as an adult things are honestly worse. Way worse. Every time I think it IS getting better turns out nope. Just kidding. The lows keep getting lower too.
How much more before I break? I don’t know. Things aren’t getting better. Not anymore.
So far, I have been enjoying the Adventures of Business Cat a great deal, possibly more than is appropriate for an adult human. (All of these are from the webcomic Happy Jar)
UPDATE: Now with more Business.
YES ALL THE BUSINESS CAT STRIPS IN ONE PLACE
DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

I’m so there
Hey look, it’s the trailer for the documentary I’m featured in!
it’s a little surreal… until seeing this clip I had no idea how central my story was in the film. I’m pretty much humbled and blown away.
I’d love it if they stopped using the phrase “despite their disabilities”
Oh, gosh, I would love this too.
Ever notice that 99 percent of the time someone uses the phrase “despite their disabilities, they’re talking about something that isn’t even affected by the disability in the first place? Like praising a deaf student for being good in calculus (what, do they think that all math is done via sound? Or that we do math with our ears?). Or praising a wheelchair rider for doing their shopping (at a wheelchair accessible grocery). Etc.
Most of the time they use phrases like “despite”, particularly when used in contexts where the disability doesn’t have the relevance that the person seems to think … that can only be read as a compliment if you are operating on the assumption that disabled people are helpless, passive creatures who can never be competent or do anything except sit there and wait for the benevolent charity of others.
34% of trans women who had attempted to access shelters were denied entry outright. Of the respondents who did manage to access a shelter, 25% were evicted after it became known that they were trans. 55% were harassed by shelter staff or residents, and 29% of trans women were physically assaulted. 26% were sexually assaulted at shelters. Overall, 47% were treated so poorly that they chose to leave the shelter.

I just got off the site. I had a massive anxiety attack and I remember seeing chesca’s facebook post last night and since imalive.org was busy they suggested this page and I got help. The listener was super helpful and you never know when you might need help.
This was the second time I’ve had an attack in my life and it was definitely more intense and I’m really glad there are resources like this to help out in times of need. Thank God for the internet.
So don’t be afraid to share, you never know who you end up helping.
Kummakivi or “Strange Rock” can be found in the forests of Finland. These strange geological formation have, without any scientific explanation, wound up in a perplexing positions. The mystifying sight is that of a giant rock performing an unbelievable balancing act on a seemingly smooth, curved mound.
Some Finnish folklore explains the odd locations of these giant stones by saying that trolls (or giants) carried, threw or rolled them there.
