You want to get kids out of foster care and into good, loving homes? I’ve got a simple solution to your problem.
Did you know LGBT couples are more likely to adopt older, children of color and disable children than straight couples? LGBT couples tend to adopt ‘undesired’ children more (basically kids no one else wants.)
I know it’s been said (many times, many ways), but this episode had a pretty profound influence on me as a tween. I loved it, and I knew I understood why Lisa was so mad. I just didn’t know why. I though feminism was a bad word until my twenties. How times have changed!
This masterpost needs so many more notes. You might save someone’s life, or make their day, or you can turn their life around by showing them this. When I’m not so sick, I’m going over the links I need because this is hella helpful right now.
That time when Raven actually said what most of us want to say to a teacher who picks you for the answer when you clearly don’t know it, for usually no other reason than to embarrass you and make you look stupid. One of the main things I hate and always will hate about school.
So after the scandal of a group of high school boys getting young girls drunk to have group sex with them, recording said acts and then naming and shaming them on facebook under the group name ‘Roast Busters’, the NZ Police said that they needed one ‘Brave young girl’ to come forward. What they didn’t say was that someone came forward two years ago, and another three people have since come forward, talking about this exact same situation.
Following that, the editor of The Daily Blog received contact from the police being threatened with a fine and/or imprisonment and they promptly took it down.
If the police were able to be as pro-active and swift in taking care of the Roast Busters as they were getting people to take stuff down that derides them, there wouldn’t be the public outrage at the police that we presently have. So I’m posting this here and extending my middle finger to the New Zealand Police Force for their piss-poor handling of the matter.
