"If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them."

One of the more helpful and insightful things I’ve seen about depression/suicide in the last couple of days.

My cat is in a similar place, just smart enough to get herself into trouble that a dumber cat never would have come near. She’s also saved by being really cute :3

My dog, Ginger, is a strange mixture of smart and dumb.

She figured out that if she was outside and she was quite we would reward her with treats, so she stayed outside and was quite for about an hour.

But during that time she apparently never peed, so when we left for an hour and a half she had to pee in the house. 

She’s athletic, and does what I like to think of as doggy parkuor; she banks off of the couch in order to make quick turns, and she likes to jump over the arm of the couch instead of just going around it.

But then this evening she was lounging on the bed and stretched too far and slid off.

Every morning she comes into my room to wake me up so I’ll feed her.

But she does this by jumping on my bed and snuggling with me.  

Fortunately she’s really cute so we forgive her when she’s dumb.

"‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space."

Not sure if I’ve reblogged this before but it always bears repeating.

"Men who frequently objectify their partner’s bodies by excessively focusing on their appearance are more likely to feel shame about the shape and size of their partner’s body, which in turn is related to increased sexual pressure (i.e., the belief that men expect sex and that it is a woman’s role to provide sex for her partner) and sexual coercion, both in general and through violence and manipulation."

Psychologists Laura R. Ramsey and Tiffany Hoyt in new study

Objectification and sexual coercion take a real toll on relationships

my mom just yelled “it’s called common sense” at my dog

“I’ve experienced basically nothing but support after coming out. It’s actually really kind of blown my mind. I thought that there would be a lot more viciousness, but maybe that’s because you’re afraid and for some reason you have this perspective, probably because of your own anxiety. To me, that’s been the most beautiful thing because it’s so indicative of the change and growth that’s happening.”
