The thing is tho, people will say that Guardians of the Galaxy proves Marvel can make any movie they want and people will see it hence, why they should take more risks with, y’know, less white dude leads
but all GotG proved is that it’s not so much characters marvel should be…
I had an elderly customer who often commissioned me for the creation of legal forms for his business. He was tired of having to print out paper documents and hand write everything, especially because he had terrible penmanship. I agreed to the work, but was leery of it, because this man hardly…

So I left an abusive adoptive family around May. I had been living with a single wealthy woman who provided food and clothes but she was emotionally, psychologically and verbally abusive. She’d yell at me until I started hyperventilating or cutting myself, knowing damn well I have a 12+ year history of being abused and have bipolar disorder (she’s a doctor, graduated from Duke, big medical doctor in her field). When I complained she’d just say I was defiant and ask how I’d handle a boss if I couldn’t handle her, or sneer that at least she had never hit me.
She got engaged to this guy in Feb. He’d lie to CPS about staying overnight (he wasn’t supposed to be there overnight but would be there for weeks) and refuses to get fingerprinted. When he moved in, she kicked me off the cell phone bill, stopped buying anything for me (including food) and he was going to bring his rifles into the house. This scares me because I have a history of suicide attempts and I felt unsafe with him, and her, because I dealt with the abuse so I could be financially ok. Now I had neither.
I left in May and got emergency campus housing. Unfortunately, my scholarships didn’t cover it, and I was denied loans because it was summer term. I have been paying everything with a cc since March, and even though I work, I have traded food for money, borrowed from friends and sold clothes and books, it isn’t enough. The school put me with an anti-violence resource center but they can’t pay my cc bill off, or provide honestly anything besides therapy.
Literally any amount will help, I’m just so damn overwhelmed and crying and I’ve exhausted EVERY option (I’m at 100% of COA so all student loans will end up denied)
If a post about or tagged #MMIW comes up on your dash, you had better reblog it. It is vitally important that the word is spread in the search for these Native women and children, but also that the public, especially the non-Native public, be made aware of the ongoing genocide…
“We never say that all men deserve to feel beautiful. We never say that each man is beautiful in his own way. We don’t have huge campaigns aimed at young boys trying to convince them that they’re attractive, probably because we very rarely correlate a man’s worth with his appearance. The problem is that a woman’s value in this world is still very much attached to her appearance, and telling her that she should or deserves to feel beautiful does more to promote that than negate it. Telling women that they “deserve” to feel pretty plays right in to the idea that prettiness should be important to them. And having books and movies aimed at young women where every female protagonist turns out to be beautiful (whereas many of the antagonists are described in much less flattering terms) reinforces the message that beauty has some kind of morality attached to it, and that all heroines are somehow pretty.”—You Don’t Have To Be Pretty – On YA Fiction And Beauty As A Priority | The Belle Jar (via brutereason)
