I may lie and tell you I use poor quality ingredients because I'm saving the better ones for an higher dexterity percentage but honestly there's only one reason I use the poor quality ones and it's HIM

I mean, look at him. Have you ever seen Jade react so strongly to something? I'm not missing my chance to mess with this stoic bastard if he acts so cute
Tumblr media
He's resigned to die but at least he's trying

Grumpy cutie pie
The little hand(s)-on-his hips pose Jade does when he's scolding someone

Posting because I initially joined this lawsuit because I saw it here on tumblr, and also this is the first news I've heard about this thing in a long time.
If any of you joined that Illinois class action lawsuit against Facebook for illegal use of biometric (in this case facial recognition) data, watch your mail and do not throw out any envelopes that look like this or are sent from this address. My husband just today got a check for nearly $400 as part of the settlement.

More info about the lawsuit and settlement here. But the jist is: you had to sign up by November 23, 2020 to enter a claim. Checks started mailing out on May 9, 2021. The checks are for between $200 and $400.

Dolly Parton to Expand Imagination Library to Provide Free Books to Refugee Children
Tumblr media
[Image: Dolly Parton, dressed in a bright, multi-colored outfit, signs a large hardcover book.]
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library provides a free book every month to participating children from low-income families until they turn five. Now, the program will also offer this service to refugee families in London. 
Marion Gillooly, executive director of the Dollywood Foundation UK, said: “Delivering books to these children every month will give them the opportunity to experience the joy of reading with their families. We hope that this will support family relationships and inspire a love of reading that will last a lifetime.”

idk maybe it’s just me but saying shit like “uterus havers” and “people who can get pregnant” “people with vaginas” “afab people” feels performative. it’s redundant. if you need an abortion, you can get pregnant. if you can get pregnant you have a uterus. you can just say people. people who need abortions. people who need birth control. people who rely on planned parenthood.
bc lets be real, those three things i just listed are not synonyms! there are people with uteri who can’t get pregnant! there are afab people without uteri! there are people with none of those parts who can never get pregnant but still need services that planned parenthood provides.
like honestly saying “people affected by [current issue]” is always going to be more precise than your approximation based on related traits.

Full offence but countries like America, Australia, the UK, etc, should all be -- not only accepting as many refugees from Afghanistan as need be, but helping refugees get the fuck out of Afghanistan.
We're the ones who spent twenty years fucking up their country and murdering their civilians "for fun." And then we just collectively drop everything and say "the Taliban can have you."
Fuck that noise. It's disgusting. There are untold numbers of people fleeing the Taliban right now, across the whole country, with all of them -- but especially women and anyone who might be accused of helping the old government/foreign armies -- fearing for their lives.
The Western countries that have spent two decades fucking up Afghanistan have a duty of fucking care to the civilians left behind.
Breaking news as of 16 August 2021 is that the Afghan president and all other government officials have fled Kabul. The "last stronghold" that was predicted to "hold out against the Taliban for three months" has fallen within a week, and most civilians in that city and others that have been overrun are now fearing for their lives.
We have a basic moral obligation to help them in any way possible. That includes taking unreserved numbers of refugees that are refugees in large part due to the actions of the "heroic west."

Today’s realization: however successful or rich or famous or powerful I may ever become (or more likely, not) between now and the day I die, no one is ever going to be able say a thing like this about me.
Thank. GOD.

You cannot ban abortion. You can only ban safe abortion.
