“My name is Jasmine Edwards. I worked at IHOP in Evansville, Indiana. As you can see I got hurt at work. A lady hit me with a glass of milk and I had to get 8 stitches. My boss told me that I was fired and that my people didn’t know how to act. I didn’t do anything wrong, customers even said that I handled the situation very well. Anyway he fired me and another lady for standing up for me. This is not right and I ask that you Please Share-thanks”

7/11 breathing. A skill to use for anxiety. It’s recommended to do it for 10-15 minutes. Like any other skill it does require a lot of practice. I advice that you practice it when you are feeling calm so you are ready in a time of need. If you lose count, which is easily done, simply start again until you do 15 minutes. It will also help with distraction even if you don’t get it right the first hundred times.

Breathing out longer than you breathe in actually activates your parasympathetic nervous system!
Anxiety is your sympathetic nervous system (“fight or flight”) setting off all the alarms, while breathing like this will set the parasympathetic system (“rest and digest”) into action shutting off the alarms and settling your nerves.
Other things that help: laughing, checking out what’s going on around you (moving head and eyes to orient to your surroundings), getting curious about something.
Take care, be safe.

Please use this, guys, it can really help calm you while being triggered and when you’re in a stressful environment.

I’m so glad this post exists. I took ecology in high school and apparently a lot of animals are attracted to the smell of cigarettes and they eat them whenever they can find them. Sometimes they’ll even wander onto roads at night if they smell one and they’ll get hit by cars doing so. And they can’t digest them. The cigarettes just sit in their stomachs until they run out of space and then they starve because they always feel full. I don’t understand why people can’t just put their cigarettes out and then toss them in the trash bin or keep them in an ashtray in their cars until they get home. Is it really that hard?

This makes me so sad.

Or just. It smoke at all

Umm…

Is everyone clear on what’s going on in Russia with LGBTQ peoples. CAUSE YOU SHOULD BE. What’s going on is absolutely horrifically disgusting and it turns my stomach. Russia is home to people just like you and me except their government is telling them how they can and cannot live and who they can and cannot LOVE. This is heartbreaking. Ask yourself how you can help our Russian brothers and sisters. Lets not be quiet about this. We can all help.

Ways you can help:

REBLOG THIS POST.

VISIT allout.org This website will inform you of the chaos in Russia and other areas of the world where being gay is a crime. Help allout.org by donations and/or signing they’re demands to governments across the world for EQUALITY and PEACE.

BOYCOTT STOLI VODKA!!

LETS DO THIS BY THE MILLIONS.

It is just appalling to see how Russian youth are being brainwashed into a doctrine of hatred!  Our gay Tumblr community must know what is happening to our brothers and sisters in Russia.  Russia wants to be seen as a progressive country by hosting the Olympics, but with human rights being violated this way, Russia only appears barbaric to the free world and any right thinking person.  PLEASE, AT LEAST RE-BLOG THIS.

Kate Brown 
Art by Carmen Jones (tumblr, portfolio)
Kate Brown was a free black woman who began working for the US Senate as a laundress in 1861.  Within a year, she was promoted to supervisor of the ladies retiring room.  This was a noteworthy position for a young woman of color and Kate became known to Senate employees as a woman of intelligence and refinement. 
On February 8, 1868 she boarded a Washington, DC bound train in Alexandria, Virginia after visiting a sick relative.  The carriage she boarded was reserved for ladies, but a railroad policeman ordered her to leave on the basis of her skin color.  Kate refused and two employees physically forced her out of the carriage, leaving her bruised and injured on the railroad platform.  Kate was bedridden for several weeks after the altercation, coughing up blood from a lung hemorrhage. 
Horrified by what had happened, Senators Charles Sumner and Justin Morrill called for an investigation into the event.  The Senate issued a report critical of the railroad which reaffirmed Kate’s right to travel without racial restrictions.  Although segregation was legal on trains in some parts of the country at this time, the 1863 congressional charter authorizing the Washington & Alexandria Railway barred racial segregation.  The clause “That no person shall be excluded from the cars on account of color” was included in the railroad’s charter at the instance of Charles Sumner.
Empowered by the support of the Senate, Kate sued the railroad for $20,000 ($360,000 in today’s money) and a District of Columbia court awarded her $1,500 ($27,000 in today’s money).  The Washington & Alexandria Railway appealed the decision, arguing that they complied with the charter by providing two separate but identical cars.  The US Supreme Court upheld the lower court’s decision and Kate was compensated by the railroad.
Kate returned to her job within months of her assault in Alexandria and she remained a Senate employee until 1881.
The Senate’s 1868 report can be found here.

I dunnoooo I think you already know that “White is beautiful” don’t you?

Or will it shatter your beauty if I recognize mine?

Realest. Shit. I. Have. Ever. Seen. THIS IS WHY WE SAY BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL. We’ve been brainwashed by society to think that we’re ugly. We’re trained to think like this before we can even pop out of a vagina. So stfu with that “Ummmmm don’t you mean ALLLLLLLLLLLL girls are beautiful?!?!?!!!?!!?!!” Yeah, they are, but we’re just making sure you know that BLACK GIRLS ARE FUCKING BEAUTIFUL TOO.
