talk to kids like they’re people and take full interest in what they’re saying because they’re forming their personalities and it’s really vital that they know that their opinions are important and what they have to say deserves validation and respect. so when your three year old niece tells you that dragons don’t like cupcakes because the color blue is a spoon you better nod your head and ask her to explain more about that.
a ~spooky insane asylum tour~ where you walk through dark empty hallways until you get locked in and someone comes up and lectures you about being shitty about mental illness for an hour
and then you get lectured about the history of institutionalization and abuse in psychiatric institutions for another hour?
American Horror Story: Historical Discussion About Privilege
just a small town girl. Living in a racist, insensitive, sexist, homophobic world,

Just a city boy, shot by cops in south Detroit
"He coulda had a gun hiding anywhere"
Up and down the boulevard
Trash cops, assholes in the night
(it goes on and on and on and on)
that time of year is approaching
scary lawn decorations
terrifying tv programs
people in costumes going door to door
HALLOWEEN IS ON A FRIDAY
I just discovered this really awesome site. Emotionalbaggagecheck.com
It’s a site that lets you leave the things that are bothering you anonymously.
When someone chooses to “carry your baggage" they’ll get your submission, and send a song and a personal note to your email address through the site (it’s never shown publicly) that may help you with what you’re going through.
I think this is an amazing idea!
Don’t keep scrolling past this cause it’s actually worth checking out! :)
This is actually really helpful; your email is kept private and there’s no log in or sign up required. Even typing my problems out seemed to help, and you can always change your mind at any point in time.
The site itself has a very calming atmosphere and I’d recommend it to all of my followers who either like helping people or have a few things to get off their chest (or both!)
This idea really is pretty amazing.
My mum used to tell me that if I ever feel sad or angry or need to cry just out of nowhere and I don’t know why, that might just be my spirit taking on something that today someone else was not able to carry all on their own, and that when this happens every now and again we should feel privileged to help and to also know that one day someone we’ve never met might be crying for us.
Tumblr has aided my social work education like woah. It’s put my grasp of theory, privileges, oppressions on a whole ‘nother level.
Also, bc of tumblr body positivity I feel more comfortable now at my super fatty fattest than I ever felt before.
For me, tumblr is social media at it’s best.
