a little love story about mermaids and tattoos
when McGonagall finds out that Ginny is pregnant, and that the Weasley and Potter bloodlines will converge, she marks on her calender the day the child will turn 11 and that is the day she retires
Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.

Don’t be scared. I’m a shapeshifter too!
First time I realize shapeshifters are not in their normal common: Beast Boy is green and Mistyque blue.

Africa is CONTINENT, not a country.
We do not SPEAK AFRICAN, there are over 3,000 unique languages with over 8,000 dialects.
We are not a MONOLITHIC group; not only does each country,
tribe*, region, Etc have a distinct culture to them, the way they dance and express rhythm and dress varies as well.
We have a history RICHER than the European continent, sadly the Europeans have white washed, raped, assimilated and destroyed a lot of it.
Africa is a RICH continent, but due to colonization most of our resources are being stolen and the European military and monarchy is making sure it stays that way.
Our people are beautiful; being black is a blessing never a curse. Our skin keeps is young and beautiful. It protects is from the sun and shields is from weatherly dangers.
Western European beauty standards are fallacies.
Africa is more than a continent, it’s a life.
I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.
this was literally the only way I could communicate with my now-husband for almost all of the first three years of our relationship, so yeah, fuck anyone who thinks I am or was a “slave to technology”.
Oh hehe maybe I’m gonna talk with this unknown people in the queue/waiting room/bus/street instead of talking with my relatives/partner/friend with technology.
