Hell hath no fury like a fangirl disappointed! Check out my very passionate PopCults review of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones 

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE! REBLOG THIS AND SHARE THE STORY OF THESE 9 PUPPIES THAT NEED HELP TO BE RESCUED! DONATE IF YOU CAN, BUT HELPING SPREAD THEIR STORY COSTS NOTHING AND HELPS TREMENDOUSLY! THEY ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME!!

"Romania is a dangerous place for street dogs, they are seen as vermin by many, and are often subjected to extreme cruelty. Of these 9 girls, 5 were were taken into foster as babies along with a 6th who has since been adopted to Germany, and 4 were born in foster along with a 5th who has since been adopted to Germany. Now that they are getting older, they are facing being left on the streets to fend for themselves. The reality there is that there are too many dogs, too few people who care, and even the public shelters are full of horrors for any dog subjected to them. Since these girls were not raised on the streets, they do not have the "street smarts" which make survival a bit more possible. They are likely to die from hunger, cold, injury, or at the hands of cruel people.

We wish to raise the necessary funds to fly to Bucharest and bring all 9 of these sisters to Canada for foster and adoption. (This is a much cheaper route to go than bringing them cargo) This fundraiser is for 6 of the dogs. Donations will cover 2 airfares, 6 excess baggage fees (200. euros per dog), 6 flight kennels, 6 pet passports and health checks, and transport to and from the airports. A seperate fundraiser will be posted for the remaining three as soon as possible. We don’t want to leave any of these girls behind to be put into the streets!

I will be travelling to Bucharest wth the lady who will be handling the adoptions, through a recognized rescue in Canada.

Please like and share our facebook page and watch for updates, and PLEASE share this link to help these girls get home!

ALL DONATIONS AND RECEIPTS FOR EXPENDITURES WILL BE FULLY DISCLOSED.

Please visit the girls on their Facebook page for the latest updates and photos!”

DONATE NOW! IT’S A EASY CLICK BUTTON!

What do all these animals have in common? They are all rescued animals. They are only a handful of over a hundred animals located at:

The Reptile Guy’s reptile rescue center

Each animal has their own story to tell and up until now that story was a success story.

Until now.

They NEED YOUR HELP!

Welcome to The Reptile Guy! It’s a reptile rescue center and has done some great work. Mike the man who started and runs the center has done his best to help animals in need during the past few years. He has been trying to raise money to get a larger center and gain more notoriety so the Government will fully recognize him as a rescue center. This would result him with more freedom to help the animals and gain approval for charity events. Among many other things. He believed he had a few months left.

Earlier this week an individual decided to report and lie about some of what Mike was doing. This has resulted in his center being at risk of shutting down in the next few days. He only found out yesterday. His center may shut down because one individual lied about what they claimed to have “saw”. You can message me if you wish more details on this matter but understand I can not divulge names or the exact time this “complaint” was made.

We don’t know what will happen to many of these animals. We suspect a large chunk will be put down due to their health concerns. That’s right the animals Mike and many of his volunteers worked so hard to save may be killed. Simply because they are too sick and Zoo’s unable to take ‘em. Simply because someone didn’t like what Mike was doing and lied about it.

Things you should know!

  • Each animal is a rescued animal or claimed animal by pet owners who could no longer care for them.
  • Many of these animals have come in with health problems and were treated by Mike and his hired Vet.
  • All of them are invasive species and can not be put into the wild for the fact that they would either die, or cause serious harm to the eco system.
  • With out Mike many of these animals would be dead already.

Mike needs 50k to open up his new center and get the new paper work that conservation officers are only allowing him days to gather. So please help in any way you can.

How can you help?

Mike is at his wits end and as one of his volunteers. Also speaking on behalf of his employees (as they too are doing their own thing to help with donations) we are begging you to help in anyway possible. Even if it’s just re-blogging this post.

Once finish setting up the kickstarter be sure I will be attaching that link as well! I will be posting a success story every hour to two hours until we hopefully get enough money together!

Don’t do this for me. Don’t do this for Mike. Do this for the animals he have saved and could save in the future!

ALRIGHT TUMBLR. To be honest, I’m not the kind of person who reblogs a lot of feminist and rape awareness posts, but this is something that I think needs a LOT more attention than what it has. I haven’t seen anything about this on this site yet, which is really surprising. 

It’s pretty simple. This guy, Ken Hoinsky, wrote a book called Above the Game: A Guide to Getting Awesome with Women and made a Kickstarter project to fund it. In this book, Hoinsky encourages readers to use methods that are considered sexual assault. 

With a total of 732 backers, Hoinsky raised a total of $16,369. However, Kickstarter’s terms and conditions prohibits content that is “threatening, abusive” or “offensive.” It also “reserves the right to suspend a campaign at any time and for any reason.” 

BUT GET THIS. DoSomething.org went to deliver the petition and they were not allowed into the Kickstarter headquarters. On top of that, Kickstarter was deleting facebook posts on their page that pertained to this project.

DoSomething.org is doing everything it can to get Kickstarter’s attention as well as sway the author into reworking his book as to prevent the encouragement of harmful behavior. 

Please bring attention to this. You can still sign the petition. This isn’t just one man committing sexual assault, it’s one man encouraging hundreds of others to commit sexual assault. There are 732 backers, meaning at the very least, 732 people who want a book on how to treat women like trash.

That’s scary.

This is my fifteen year old sister, Hannah. She has a cyst on her pineal gland, which is in the middle of her brain. (From what I understand, a cyst is like a tumor but filled with liquid.) We’ve known about it for about two years, and it constantly gives her horrific headaches, that can last weeks. Her vision is getting very bad because of it too, and so is her quality of life, she’s started fainting and had a couple seizures recently. Just last week we had a Skype conference with one of the two neurosurgeons, in the world, who would potentially perform the surgery to remove it. (A lot of people have trouble getting this surgery approved, but because Hannah’s is one of the largest cysts in one of the youngest patients, it was approved.) Praise God. The surgery will take place in June, but only if we can pay the $50,000. We really need help raising this money.

Any amount helps.
Please keep her in your prayers.

Seriously guys, get on this. If my followers alone donated a dollar each it would make a huge difference. Please, you don’t know what this means to me, or Hannah, Natalie and Timmy for that matter.

Even if you can’t donate, reblogging helps too.

If Homestuck can raise 2 million, if Skullgirls can raise 800k, then certainly the internet can raise 50k for Hannah’s surgery.

The fact that someone can’t get a life saving surgery unless they have thousands of dollars, is disgusting. Healthcare like this should be free the world over. But it’s not. So people are forced to either suffer or rely on the generosity of others. Please find it in your heart to spare even a little toward this girls future. If everyone donated what they spend on a beverage or meal out, she would have this operation paid for in no time.

So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.

I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”.  So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.

I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals. 

…exuse me while I’m just speechless in rage..

one of the most disgusting things ive seen

That was one of the most awful things I’ve read

I never add anything to posts but this one, this strikes me to fucking home and back.

Everyone who follows me knows, my passion is art, I love it, I paint and draw and test new things and I doodle everywhere I go. I couldn’t imagine a world where I couldn’t draw, its so deeply ingrained, I’m going to art school, for pete’s sake.

But this. This poor kid reminds me of myself when I was younger, and even today. When I was in first grade, I loved drawing, I was only 6 and it was great and no one paid attention. By third or fourth grade, it was obvious that I liked art. Come middle school, I was drawing regularly…. in lined notebooks. My mom was vehemently opposed to my art/drawing and refused to buy plain paper, I had to buy lined notebooks at my school store. Sometimes my grandparents and aunts and uncles bought me stuff to use, but I burned through it all really quick (one notebook lasts about two months in my hands).

And my art, it was in the art show at my school. My mom went just like every other parent, didn’t seem to pay mind to how proud I was. Nodded and smiled and oh look, look at what the high school girls did and she wandered away from my little collection on my wall and I was heartbroken. This continued - CONTINUES - even to today. I had an art show, just last week, my last one with my high school. I had an entire exhibit wall to myself, I filled up every inch of that bad boy. I drew designs for our class T-shirts, I made covers to books and magazines the school printed, I made an entire goddamn mural for the high school library and for the church across the street and I’m about to start mural number 3 and recently my art teacher sent out my portfolio to be in different art shows across the state and I recieved my Honorable Mention in comic art from the Boston Globe Art & Writing Show.

I have achievements, I love my art. Other people love my art. I’m still learning but it’s clearly my passion, I’m committed to the Art Institute of Boston.

And you know what? My mom’s missed out on most showings, has never bought me anything I can use - you know, I’ll tell her, “I need more arcrylic paint and some canvases, any will do”. She’ll bring back watercolors that she bought for 10 cents at some market and construction paper. She knows what I ask for.

So I stopped asking. Everything I’ve ever drawn, traditional or digital - I’ve payed for my tablet, my notebook, my paints, my pencils, my canvas and paper. And I realize this 11 year old boy is not as independent as I am, and he’s a boy and has the standard set upon him that art is for girls and clearly - clearly his father is aggressive. But this, this poor kid, he needs to embrace his artistic side and it makes me absolutely fucking SICK when this is ignored in anybody, ESPECIALLY parents. If I could, I would fucking sit down with this kid and give him half my supplies and tell his fucking dad off.

I know what its like to have a parent that despises your life career choice and your ambition/passion, it’s not fun. I feel for this kid and I get so fucking mad when people whine that being in the arts isn’t a real career. Fight me.

As an artist, and an actor, with a 3 year old son who LOVES to sing and dance, and draw— my heart breaks for this little boy. This sort of narrow minded thinking infuriates me. And this kind of parenting makes me want to foot to face people. Your job as a parent, is to build your child up, teach them to be good people, and try and support them as they find who they are what makes them happy. What sort of sad human being do you have to be, to destroy the happiness of your own child?! Especially when that happiness is derived from something as beautiful as creating.
