"Smart girls are the overthinkers, the insecure ones, the different ones. They know what the real world is like. They analyze every little thing in life. Why? To avoid getting hurt. To find happiness. They stay up at night trying to think about every possible situation to get through all the problems. They think too much. They trust fewer people. Their insecurity proves their respect toward themselves. Of course they try to live away from a drama-filled life. Smart girls know their worth. Now those are the ones worth keeping by your side."

"I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take side. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages, the tormentor, never the tormented."
-Elie Wiesel

WEIRD BECAUSE ELIE WIESEL ALSO SAID:
People who compare abortion to the Holocaust "prove that they do not know what the Holocaust was."

He also advocates for safe and legal abortion because he saw what lack of access to abortive medicine did to some of the people in the holocaust.  Pregnant people were usually killed upon arrival, rather than kept as sub-par workers.  
So trully, in the actual* holocaust, being caught pregnant was an automatic and immediate death sentence as soon as the guards discovered your condition.  While many able-bodies people were kept to work or to forcedly make products such as marching boots for the soldiers, pregnant people and people with young babies were killed as soon as possible.
Good logic, pro-lifers.
Why do you always use quotes by pro-choice people to try to defend your incorrect views? Cut it out. Cmon.

*Only one holocaust ever happened and it did not happen to fetuses.

Reblogging for awesome.

Fucking Holocaust comparisons piss me off.

The only thing that is ever comparable to the Holocaust is the actual Holocaust, not women’s personal choices omfg.

"

A girl in my Sociology class turns around during a class activity on goals to start a conversation with me. Her opening line is: ‘I want to get married.’ I nod and smile. She does not ask me my goals, just continues telling me the sort of guy she’d like to be with and how many kids she’d like. Thoughtfully, she adds, ‘My mom told me to meet someone and marry them. You don’t wanna date around because you wanna be fresh for the guy and not a….you know what.’

My cousin’s Facebook ‘About Me’ lists things she would like in a man. There is nothing about her or the things she does, only qualities she finds attractive. ‘Looking for someone who can play the guitar and cook a great dinner,’ she wrote. I can hear her bubbly, singsong voice while reading it. She is thirteen years old and has told me that girls ‘oughta only kiss their husbands and that’s it.’ When I ask her what she wants to be when she’s older she says, ‘Married.’

My male friend tells me that he has no problem with what girls do, but that he would not date a girl who’s ‘been around’ because she’d be ‘dirty.’ I wonder if each time someone touches you, a part of you is soiled. If there are piles of dirt in the spaces where others’ fingers once rested. In the shower, I try to scrub the smell of dirt from myself, but come out, still polluted, with red scratch marks all over me.

Being a ‘you know what’ taught me some things: that I do not want to be touched by somebody who will judge my past. That I am not a tally book, with others’ names burned into me. If you have to label me as something, let it be a human being.

Our second rescue from beagles who have lived their entire lives inside a research laboratory. These beagles have known nothing except the confines of metal cages. They have known no soft human touch, no warm bed, no companionship, no love. They have never been outside or sniffed a tree or grass. 
Finally, after years of being poked and prodded, these beagles are FREE! ARME got the call that a facility was willing to release them to us after they had been used in several tests. We picked them up on June 8th and now they are all in loving foster homes, and one has already been adopted. (Click here too see the video).

You pass through some of the most dangerous districts on your route. What have you seen around those parts?I’ve seen them take young girls away by force. They put them in their cars, they cover their heads with jackets and bags, and they take them. I’ve seen them kill…One day, by the Santa Cecilia church, I was arriving when some guys pulled up in a car and ended up killing the passenger I dropped off there. He was with another passenger, who tried to run away but he still got shot. I got out of there immediately. When these things happen you have to just get out.
When I encountered a gunfight between officers and hitmen in Las Moras, I didn’t think about my life, I thought about saving the lives of the people I carried in my bus.That day I was returning from the ranch. When I was approaching la Chiripa [a roundabout in Northwest Ciudad Juárez], they told me to pull over to the side of the road because there was a shooting. I said, “OK, I’ll go this way, by the hillside.” And as I drove by the hillside we encountered another gunfight past Las Moras, and the officers started shielding themselves with the bus. They were taking cover; I would accelerate and they ran along with us. You could hear gunshots in every direction.
What do you find most dangerous about Ciudad Juárez?What scares me is our relationship with the police. Because sometimes you find yourself on the wrong side.
You told me that one time a police officer assaulted you in your house…One time, we were sleeping. I think they shot a few transit [officials] and started to search the area by the river shore. We were sleeping and the police arrived, kicked down the door, entered the house, and pointed their guns at our heads. They yelled for us to wake up because they were out looking for some hit men. They ravaged the house, stole my daughter’s cell phone, our money, and everything they could put in their bags. They ran off with the little value we possessed.
Read the whole interview: Driving a Bus in Ciudad Juarez Is Dangerous Business

america talks about fighting terrorism globally but this shit is happening right next door but then guess whos funding it ???

As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting.
Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive.
Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong.
In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding. 
Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis. 
These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition.
While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications.
SOURCE

Let’s just take a depressing freaking minute to think about this. This man has been like this for 12 plus years, yes? How long has he been alone? How long does he wait between visits from family? What if you assume that he has relatively the same amount of brain function as before the accident… It’s bumming me out thinking about being trapped alone inside my head, waiting for something to come by. I wonder if the nurses come by and talk to coma patients when they check on them? Can you feel when you are being washed and moved around? Dude…

You know I was like “Woah this is a great thing they found out” and now you just ruined my life
