Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.

Part 4.

Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.

More Daily Life Hacks Here

Can we all just stop for a sec and I MEAN COME THE FUCK ON. 

I’ve read some of the life hacks and some are damn good, but this…this is just insulting. “Oh that thing you need to MOVE and EXIST, we’ll just use it to “hack life” coz LOLZ!” FUCK NO!

wtf… 

WHAT THE EVER LIVING FUCK THAT IS NOT OKAY!

you know why i use a wheelchair? BECAUSE I CAN BARELY WALK FROM ONE SIDE OF MY HOUSE TO ANOTHER.

without my wheelchair, and accessible places to go, i spend all day, every day, at home.

you know why there are reduced prices for some people with disabilities? BECAUSE WE CAN’T ALL ACTUALLY GO TO WORK.

and heaps of us can’t afford to buy a wheelchair in the first place. mine is a trashed, second-hand folding wheelchair that originally belonged to a hospital. it’s designed to help people get from one point in the hospital to another, not for someone who needs to use it almost any time they want to leave their bed.

so how about all you fucked up people who keep suggesting that able bodied people pretend to be disabled go get lost.

YOU WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ALL THOSE REDUCED ENTRY PRICES? HAVE MY DISABILITY TOO, THANKS.

ALSO when there IS (and honestly, it rarely happens and you have to ask for the reduced price and then they give you grief about it and it’s just not worth it) a reduced price it’s BECAUSE PART OR MOST OF THE EVENT IS INACCESSIBLE.

And able-bodied people who pretend to be disabled are the scum of the earth because you make it so much more difficult for those of us who are disabled in non-typical ways to be believed.

ba ha ha.
BA HA HA HA.

Yeah. That $2/ticket savings (when it is very rarely offered) would TOTALLY pay off my $10,000 chair in no time!

[Image description: Picture of a black manual wheelchair. Text over the image reads, “Buy a wheelchair and use it when you go to the cinema, museums, etc. The reduced entry prices mean that it will pay for itself within a year, anything after that is pure savings.” Text in the bottom right corner reads, “LifeHackable.tumblr.com”]

Wow.

This goes for Disneyland as well people. 

this is never okay. people who are actually in wheelchairs are there for a reason people. and people who pretend they need a wheelchair don’t understand what it is like to not have a choice in using one.

When did he stop treating you like a princess?

Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, but the vast majority of victims are young girls and women simply because they are “the weaker sex”.

Did you know:

  • On average, 2 women a week are killed by a current or former male partner. This constitutes nearly 40% of all female homicide victims.
  • 45% of women are abused/raped by current husbands or partners, 9% by former partners, and a further 29% of perpetrators were otherwise known to the victim. Only 17% are attacked by by strangers.
  • 44% of victims of domestic violence are involved in more than one incident. A large number of women experience the same abuse every week.
  • On average, a woman is assaulted 35 times before her first call to the police.
  • 30% of domestic violence either starts or will intensify during pregnancy.
  • In almost 75% of incidents, a child is present or in a room closeby.

THIS HAS GOT TO STOP. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY.

It’s time to show the world that we are not weak and we will simply not stand for this kind of ill treatment. Women should be treated as princesses, like Ariel and Cinderella, who never have to live in fear of their so-called Prince Charming.

It’s time to stand up. To speak out. To be heard.
