Saving dauphins is expected, but this guy saves a shark!!!
Thank you sir, for showing us there’s still some hope for humanity!

more amazing people«

I had a look at the original video and news articles about this. Apparently the man was fishing and accidentally hooked the great white shark, but cut it loose; then he realized the poor thing was beached. What you don’t see here is what’s possibly the most awesome part: he realized the shark still had his hook in its mouth and went to the effort of removing the hook.

From the mouth of a live, distressed great white shark.

Which he then got back into the water and set free.

His name’s Shane Cox, and he’s a pretty damn awesome Australian for that.

I love this paper my disability department gave me. The representative also told me to report ANY kind of ableism, even if it seems minuscule to me.

The top three are hard to read so:

  1. Disability accommodations are rights, not special help. (Ask for what you need. Advocate for yourself.)
  2. You are an important and valuable part of campus diversity. (Diversity includes disability.)
  3. College disability services officers can be gatekeepers. (Most are good allies for students, but some are not. Demand professional, individualized, respectful services and file a complaint if you don’t get them.)

They’re all a little hard to read (small writing) so:

  1. Disability accommodations are rights, not special help.
    Ask for what you need. Advocate for yourself.
  2. You are an important and valuable part of campus diversity.
    Diversity includes disability.
  3. College disability services officers can be gatekeepers.
    Most are good allies for students, but some are not. Demand professional, individualized, respectful services and file a complaint if you don’t get them.
  4. Feed your soul and body - recharge your batteries.
    Balance your valuable time, energy, and health.
  5. Stay focused on your career.
    If it won’t help you get a job or maintain your passion for college, don’t bother. 
  6. Find a community.
    Never go it alone. Consider connecting with others who have disabilities. 
  7. Universally design your own learning. 
    Learn how you learn best, and then use your strengths and unique learning style.
  8. Never apologize for your disability or your accommodations.
    If you apologize, people may think you are ashamed.
  9. Fight oppression and bullying in any form. 
    Ableism is just one “ism.” If one of us is oppressed, all of us are oppressed.
  10. Learn disability history.
    Learn about the people and movements that made it possible for you to be in college.

Don’t Think it Matters When You Throw Your Gum Onto the Ground? Stuck Hummingbird Begs to Differ

This is really important. Besides the fact that small animals can become stuck in gum larger ones often choke on it or have their mouths obstructed by it.

Humans may be able to pass gum through our systems but most small birds, reptiles, and mammals can’t. Gum looks and smells a lot like food to other animals and it can mean their demise if they try to swallow it. 

It only takes a few seconds to wrap your gum up and put it somewhere responsible, you could just save a life. 

I never would have thought gum of all things could fuck up a hummingbird. Guess it isn’t just gross- for the wrong critter it’s dangerous.

trans women are not female and thus do not have a place in FEMinism. they can, however, be feminist allies.

ATTENTION!!! THIS is the CEO of the popular online store shopjeen (Erin Yogasundram) proudly wearing fucking black face on her Instagram page. DO NOT support this business. I am appalled that I gave money to this bigoted scumbag. Not to mention, their website had LOADS of “omg ghetto fabulous!!” garments and accessories modeled by - you guessed it - white models (sometimes donning cornrows). PLEASE spread the word as I know that this store is popular for Tumblr users.

Hi, so this post is utter bullshit.

If you took 10 seconds to go to this women’s blog before reblogging, you could easily find out that the person in this photo is not Erin.  Erin is a WOC and looks like this:

Again I’m NOT a small child with blue eyes. I’m a WOC, small business owner who is now receiving death threats due to a disgusting, defaming tumblr post that is surfacing. I did Instagram that photo on my personal account, with a caption MOCKING the ridiculousness of the Lil Wayne costume. It was pretty convenient to leave that part out, and frame me to be the person in the photo (who I repeat is clearly a CHILD). I am a full-figured, brown skinned woman with colored hair and brown eyes. Not to mention, I would NEVER do this.     I employ an extremely talented, diverse team and they make Shop Jeen the amazing success that it is. The thought that the spread of this inaccurate post hindering the company’s growth makes me sick to my stomach.     PLEASE fact check before you reblog stuff like this- this is serious.    I am absolutely distraught that my company’s name is being dragged through the mud without probable cause. This is traumatizing.this is why I look like. The person dressed up as lil wayne in that photo is a small child. The caption, which was left out of the now viral tumblr post defaming me and my company was shaming and mocking the ridiculous costume choice.

From her tumblr, she wrote this:

and when the threats did not stop:

But of course, have I forgotten where I am? Ah yes, the land of tumblr where gullible is always written on the ceiling.  Or so they say.
