Banned Books by the Numbers: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/22/banned-books-week-infographic_n_5852234.html

Banning books is so completely ridiculous. At first, I was happy to see that Oklahoma has no banned books, but then I considered the high rate of illiteracy in children AND adults, and figured that’s why we don’t have any banned books. No one can fucking read them anyway. 

I saw Oklahoma and I knew, instantly, that it is because we do not bother to read.


Alexander Tsiaras’ Anatomical Photography

You’ve seen his art before on tumblr, in google search gif sets (where I found some of these images) and facebook, but you likely don’t know the author of the art because people fail to give artists credit. Tsiaras’ work pops up on my dash constantly and has never been sourced as far as I’ve seen it. So here you go, tumblr. Meet the artist. Learn more in the links provided below.

"Alexander Tsiaras, Founder, Editor-in-Chief and CEO of TheVisualMD, has been called a "Digital Age Leonardo da Vinci". He is a technology innovator, whose roots are based in his art and science photojournalism background.

His images simply and compellingly explain health and illness in terms that anyone can understand. Most importantly, they give you a visual map to plan your own optimal Health!"

My man is so sweet and tender. Last night an ant ran across my back and instead of smashing it to death, he gently got it onto his hand and put it down. I know, as a rape and intimate partner violence survivor with PTSD, I will always struggle with feeling safe, but small things that he does like…

You DON’T have PTSD.
PTSD is a disorder normally brought on by militant experience.
The idea that your country allows you to kill a person or see the death of a person by will, causes this.
This isn’t brought on by rape. Sure, there is psychological disorders brought on by rape, but PTSD is Traumatized. It has to constantly happen, it has to actually be planted into your brain.
Please, find another word and stop trying to make yourself look like a war hero.

Have you ever heard of rape trauma syndrome??? Of course you havent, fuckwad. I have a legal diagnosis of PTSD. Fight me.

I had to do a project in an abnormal psychology class that centered solely on a woman who had PTSD from sexual abuse. It’s post traumatic stress disorder, nowhere in the DSM does it state it has to be caused by fighting in a war.

Why the hell do we feel like we have a right to disagree with someone else’s experience.

Who do you think you are to say “you do not have this thing you say you have” when you do not know them AND are not qualified to diagnose.

I’ll tell you what I do want. I want someone who will be monogamous, and nice to his mother. And I want someone who likes musicals but knows to just shut his mouth when I’m watching Lost. And I want someone who thinks being really into cars is lame and strip clubs are gross. I want someone who will actually empty the dishwasher instead of just taking forks out as needed, like I do. I want someone with clean hands and feet and beefy forearms like a damn Disney prince. And I want him to genuinely like me, even when I’m old. And that’s what I want.
