when the boys pull your hair and push you to the ground
I promise not to tell you that it’s because they like you.
when the teachers call home to tell me that
you pushed them to the ground in return
I’ll take you out of school early and buy
you your favorite ice cream.
when you get older and the boys
try to touch you when you don’t want to be touched
I’ll look at you like the sun when you come home
with anger in your fists.
they all tell you not to fight fire with fire
but that is only because they are afraid of your flames.
when the boys yell after you like hyenas
you yell back, baby.
I will not teach you to be afraid of your anger
so that you look for it in others.
I will not make you be the better person
because you already are.
you wanna fight ‘em? fight ‘em.
don’t you dare apologize for the fierce love
you have for yourself
and the lengths you go to preserve it.
when the boys try to tell you to soften up
I hope you make them bleed with your edges.
I hope you remember that you are not theirs
that their disappointment in you is not yours.
when the boys come to your door with pretty words and
I hope you show them the anger in yours.
I hope you show them just how strong your mommy
thinks you are.
I hope you show them the animal they can’t always
see in their own reflection.
when the boys come with the intention of hurting you
my advice will always stay the same, my darling:
give ‘em hell.
Whoa, hold up there a minute. If you’re cutting your wrists after your boyfriend broke up with you again, THAT’S STILL SELF HARM. I don’t see how it suddenly isn’t just because you don’t approve of their reasons. Any attempts at injuring yourself is self harm even if you do it once. And it’s still really bad no matter how often it happens.
Bulimia IS making yourself puke AT ALL. It’s not normal to make yourself puke EVER. Chronic Bulimia is where you do it often. Plenty of bulimics don’t puke after every meal. You only have to force yourself to puke three times a week to be diagnosed. Edit: Some bulimics do not puke at all! The only rule for diagnosis is PURGING. Purging also is done through laxatives and does not always include self-induced vomiting. To be Bulimia, though, it has to be paired with binge eating.
Insomnia IS ANY DIFFICULTIES WITH SLEEPING. "Transient insomnia lasts for less than a week. It can be caused by another disorder, by changes in the sleep environment, by the timing of sleep, severe depression, or by stress." So when you’re stressed about a test and can’t get into a deep enough state of sleep or stay asleep, that is insomnia. Chronic Insomnia isn’t not sleeping for two nights but insomnia can be.
Schizophrenia is not seeing things when you’re high, but getting high too often can cause schizophrenia.
Someone who complains about a sudden switch when they’re depressed might really have MPD. Switches are often triggered as emotional responses to certain situations. No two people’s MPD behaves the same; patients display huge differences in number of “alters”, methods of switching between them and frequency of those switches.
Depression is ANY period of deep emotional low. “Depressed mood is not necessarily a psychiatric disorder.”CLINICAL DEPRESSION is the disease that causes a person to feel depressed with no known cause, though it can be linked to events in the patients life.
When someone complains about anxiety before a test it is not actually anxiety. But if their stress manifest as, say, that worry triggering you to worry about ridiculous situations such as leaving the car door open when you never would or having forgotten to turn off the stove, it is anxiety. No matter how often it happens. Anxiety is an EMOTIONAL STATE of worrying intensely about things unlikely to happen. When it becomes a psychological problem, it’s called General Anxiety Disorder. People can be Anxious and not have a disorder at all. It’s an emotion.
Check your facts before trying to control how people label their emotions. There are some good points here, but some of these are just awful or misinformed. Like how in the world is that self injury example NOT self injury?

This post hasn’t hit half a million notes yet
Have yourselves a
Yep. I know it’s a lot of notes to ask for, and a really short amount of time, and I probably won’t get even one but, I’m doing this because a friend told me to. I was going to kill myself tonight. I had no one to talk to, no one to vent to. They wouldn’t understand. I’m going through a lot, and it won’t seem to stop. Ever. It pains me to breathe, even. But I’m giving it one shot, knowing it won’t work, just because my friend asked me to. So no, I’m not seeking attention, I simply made a promise to a friend. If it was for me I’d be dead already. The 7th was an important date for me, and therefore that’s the day I’m choosing.
EVERYONE REBLOG THE SHIT OUT OF THIS. EVERY DAY.
Where were you all when the others who were ignored finally reached out? I could have already been dead multiple times, if not for my own weakness.
Do not let this go.
Do not think that one person alone cannot be the deciding catalyst between the life or loss of another; we are an inherently social species, and the feeling of isolation can become deadly if it’s left to fester…
Don’t forget that there is a person there.
Don’t just stand back when all it may take is a few words, or even just a sign.
Everyone needs to reblog this.
I don’t care how many times I’ve reblogged this
Rogers knew whats up
50 Shades of Abuse Flyer - Canada
Use, redistribute, print.
Click image and magnify for large version.
Okay. I understood all the flack Twilight got for being an abusive relationship. Because it was and it was being read by a very young and impressionable audience. But ffs, 50 Shades is an ADULT NOVEL. Iit is about a BDSM couple. Which - newsflash - do exist. It is a completely consensual form of dominate/submissive sex play. The whole concept of domestic violence and abuse is that one side exerts control over an unwilling victim. I don’t recall Anastasia, or whatever she’s called, protesting to Christian’s form of sex. If I remember correctly, she quite enjoyed it! So before you condemn a work of romanticized fiction, actually consider it’s audience and remember that they are mature and capable enough to know the difference between reality and fiction.
so i guess you didn’t read the parts where he coerces her and the part where he continues after she has used her safeword and acts like a fucking creep whenever they aren’t having sex
it is the worst possible introduction to BDSM i could imagine
i know my shit okay
im hoping the people defending this book are 1. never getting into BDSM 2. not currently into BDSM 3. havent read the book bc i dont want to believe anyone is that fucking stupid
knowledge on you right now.
Wanna know the BDSM mantra? Safe, sane, consensual.
So let me explain why this book was devoid of all three of these things.
Safe - In the first few chapters of the novel, Christian Grey tracks Ana’s cell phone to find her at a club. Takes her home when she’s drunk, changes her when she’s so intoxicated she doesn’t remember him doing so,and informs her he will be keeping tabs on her for her own benefit. This is not the behaviour of a respectable Dominant. This is the behaviour of a power hungry, abusive asshole who really can’t take no for an answer.
Sane - One of the most important parts of BDSM is aftercare. Scenes can be extremely traumatizing and intense for the submissive. Aftercare is anything from petting to cuddling to holding to sweet talking, whatever degree of gentleness a bottom would need to pull them out of “subspace”. How does Christian provide aftercare? He submits Ana to a traumatizing first time spanking experience AND THEN FUCKING LEAVES. AND GETS MAD THAT SHE DIDN’T TELL HIM SHE WAS UPSET. He’s the one who should fucking know better! That, again, is not the act of a responsible Dominant. It’s the act of a selfish abuser.
Consensual - Did I mention he undressed her when she was belligerently drunk? Tracked her phone to locate her? He also buys her a new car despite her saying no countless times. Now, consent is important for any kind of sexual activity at all. Consent means informed, consent means enthusiastic. Informed, enthusiastic consent. This is crucial in a BDSM setting. Scenes can be extremely intense, especially for the bottom. What is Christian’s form of obtaining consent? Handing Ana a fucking contract highlighting all the things he wants to do her asshole and asking her to sign it. She was a virgin (Don’t even get me fucking started.) who had never before been exposed to BDSM. Entering in that kind of relationship takes a gargantuan amount of trust and knowledge so you know exactly what you’re getting into. Not reading a list of kinks on a piece of paper and signing your rights to say no away. Christian didn’t offer her resources, he didn’t offer her information. He gave her an ultimatum. That is not the sort of consent a responsible Dom/me would seek from their submissive.
Fuck. This. book. It’s written in a shitty way, it’s a terrible example of a BDSM relationship (ask anybody already involved in the lifestyle and watch them go blue in the face just thinking about it), which is already faced with enough prejudice and misunderstanding, and it romanticizes and glorifies abuse.
Reblogging because relevant
Thank the gods, FINALLY a Tumblr post about this!!!!!!!
My baby brother’s first girlfriend recently confessed to thinking they were actually a boy. I asked my brother if this bothered him. His response was:
“Well, yeah. If I had have known they were a boy when we were going out, I would have said I had a boyfriend, not a girlfriend.”
He was ten.

This was an art project for school, the assignment being to do a piece on some social injustice. As a person who has been, is, and likely will be depressed in the future, I feel a strong shame when the topic of depression is brought up in a social setting, as if my struggle is some kind of a disease. The way depression is talked about is, for some reason, separate from the way physical injuries are discussed. My pain and injury is no less than that of someone with physical evidence that there is something wrong, which is absolute bullcrap.
Anyway, I hope you like the comic. /end of rant.
Holy shit Hannah.fuck. this is so wonderful and really got to me. i even spent time in a mental hospital and peoplestill tell me to just “get over” my depression and to “stop being so sad all the time”…
