When did he stop treating you like a princess?
Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, but the vast majority of victims are young girls and women simply because they are “the weaker sex”.
Did you know:
On average, 2 women a week are killed by a current or former male partner. This constitutes nearly 40% of all female homicide victims.
45% of women are abused/raped by current husbands or partners, 9% by former partners, and a further 29% of perpetrators were otherwise known to the victim. Only 17% are attacked by by strangers.
44% of victims of domestic violence are involved in more than one incident. A large number of women experience the same abuse every week.
On average, a woman is assaulted 35 times before her first call to the police.
30% of domestic violence either starts or will intensify during pregnancy.
In almost 75% of incidents, a child is present or in a room closeby.
It’s time to show the world that we are not weak and we will simply not stand for this kind of ill treatment. Women should be treated as princesses, like Ariel and Cinderella, who never have to live in fear of their so-called Prince Charming.
It’s time to stand up. To speak out. To be heard.

please please reblog this.



Racism and ignorance clearly evident in our society, as experienced by my friend’s sister. This is what her potential dorm roommate, whom she had never met or talked to before, tweeted about her.
"Today I googled my last name and found this as one of the search results. Apparently, just by looking at my profile picture, I am Indian and I can barely speak english. This, my friends, is a prime example of racial profiling. I am an American citizen. I was born in Houston, Texas. My roots are not from India but from Africa. My parents are Algerian. I am Algerian American. English is my primary language and it is a struggle for me to speak my parent’s native tongue. My name is pronounced exactly as it is spelled. I wear a hijab (a head covering), and not a niqab ( a facial covering that excludes the eyes) though I do admire, respect, and find the beauty in all those who do choose to wear the niqab. But this girl is right, I probably would have had a heart attack living with a person who could not, and refused to, respect me and my beliefs. I can only thank God for an opening of a single room shortly after they assigned this roommate, way before I knew she had posted any of this. Alhamdullilah. I also thank God for being born in Houston, one of the most multicultural cities in the United States, and not experiencing racism like this everyday of my life. Sunday is my move in day and the start of my college career. This can be nothing but a good sign for the years to come, inshaAllah.  In conclusion, I urge everyone, please, don’t judge a person by their appearances. Racism exists in this nation because we continue to do so. We have to look beyond the covers of appearances and read the texts of their characters. Stand with me and ‪#‎stopracism‬.” -Roukaya Mabizari

She should be banned from life

this is so fucked up


hold on tight and don’t look back [x]

This is the original of this repost.













It’s here…

I have been trying to figure put how to say half of these names for like 10 minutes.

Akshajram — It’s like someone just clicked a fuckload of letters on a keyboard.

OMFG. LOL. I’m pretty sure I’ve keysmashed file names as that.

OMG I know. Half the kids were Indian. Literally half.

Yes, these are ethnic names…it doesn’t look like a keyboard smash anything. I mean god forbid their names be something that means something in their culture and not something like River to Harmony. SHEESH

Wow fuck the xenophobic people who were commenting on this. Like, these are actual names of actual children of color and you want to make fun of part of their identity and heritage because your uncultured ass can’t conduct a google search or you know actually ask these kids how to pronounce their “ethnic” (in quotations because ethnic really just means not white now a days) names. Like fuck that shit. It’s not funny and it is pretty fucking racist.

God forbid non white non western names be beautiful or meaningful
Yall take time perfecting your pronunciation of bendiddly coosalagoopagoop because it’s attached to a white man, but lord knows these names are just “keysmash” names which are only there for proper folk to make fun of.
since yall cant be assed to do the research:
Makena (Hawaiian, meaning abundance or happy one, )
Saanvi (Indian, synonymous with Lakshmi, the beautiful Hindu goddess of material and spiritual wealth and prosperity) 
Sourav (Indian male first name. It means fragrance, generally that of flowers.)
Teo (Greek, Gift of God)
Jyotsna (Indian, ‘moonlight’ in Sanskrit)
Lekhana (sanskrit for painting and writing)
Rohin (Sanskrit for ‘rising’; born under the Sandlewood tree)
Rushil (sanskrit; ‘charming’)
Kothai (devoted, sweet natured girl)
Sejal (river water, pure, or depth in character)
Vedika (restoring knowledge)
so get the fuck outta here with that mess

Dude…. seriously. This looks like a kindergarten class… Do not fuckin disrespect the children you are teaching. Do not give them “easier to say” nicknames. Learn their names and how to say them correctly. Do not disrespect the child’s heritage and culture. If you can’t put in the effort to learn, stop fuckin teaching.

OP isn’t the teacher, apparently she’s the mom of one of the kids. which is equally ass bad because she probably laughs at these children’s names in front of her kid
but still ewww at all of that ‘lolol these darkies and their funny names’ shit

god how fucking disgusting, you people will come up with 89 alternate spellings for Ashley but laugh at children of color I hate this so much

I get shit like this all the time. My name is Maemaegawauhnse and when I was in kindergarten white people nicknamed me MaeMae. For a long time I felt stripped of something. I didnt like my nickname but people didnt respect me when I told them to call me Maemaegawauhnse because I was little. So fuck you. Names are important and for you to write it off as a “keyboard smash” is racist and shameful.


if u have good cheekbones aND good eyebrows fuck u

Not everything happens for a reason. Sometimes life just sucks.

I literally overcame self esteem issues by making ironically over-arrogant claims because even if you’re joking about something a lot you start to believe it and that can totally work in a good way if you let it
