how do i get this picture of myself tumblr famous

i want this tattooed on my back

lol, this would make a magnificently stupid tattoo.
1) I’ve always found it a very bizarre assumption that pro-lifers only care about fetuses. The Catholic Church, one of the most notorious abortion spooners, is actually one of the largest charity providers in America. If we’re basing this on a more political level, republicans, the ones who don’t like abortion, are statistically more likely to donate to charitable organizations. (http://www.ethicsdaily.com/republican-states-give-more-to-charity-than-democratic-states-cms-19923)
2) Most of the children in Foster Care can’t be adopted because the parental rights of their biological parents haven’t been terminated yet. The parental rights need to be terminated in order for the child to be eligible for adoption. Also, most of the kids waiting to be adopted are teenagers, have severe mental or physical disabilities, want to stay in a certain area or there’s like, five siblings. (firsthand testimony from someone I’ve spoken with who tried to adopt a foster child)
3) this is some real next level stupidity. as a black bisexual, I personally laugh in the face of anyone who says anything like this. you seem to care ooooh sooooo much about POC, but do you care that African American children in NYC are more than 50% likely to be aborted? or, on a more basic level, what have you done to ease ANY of problems that my people are facing? or are you just offering abortion as the only solution to… homelessness? police brutality? unemployment? workplace discrimination? misrepresentation in media?
you are not pro-choice, you are pro-abortion. you clearly only like to use oppressed peoples who are suffering from REAL ISSUES as props to demonstrate why everyone needs an abortion. what about everyone who needs pre-natal care? diapers? better maternity leave? antibiotics and other medication? home aid? anything other than an abortion?

Scientists discover most relaxing tune ever

Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.

Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.

Dr David Lewis, one of the UK’s leading stress specialists said: “‘Weightless’ induced the greatest relaxation – higher than any of the other music tested. Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions.”

The study - commissioned by bubble bath and shower gel firm Radox Spa - found the song was even more relaxing than a massage, walk or cup of tea. So relaxing is the tune, apparently, that people are being Rex advised against listening to it while driving.

The top 10 most relaxing tunes were: 1. Marconi Union - Weightless 2. Airstream - Electra 3. DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix) 4. Enya - Watermark 5. Coldplay - Strawberry Swing 6. Barcelona - Please Don’t Go 7. All Saints - Pure Shores 8. AdelevSomeone Like You 9. Mozart - Canzonetta Sull’aria 10. Cafe Del Mar - We Can Fly

my muscles stopped functioning 

I was so relieved this wasn’t a trick. Very soothing.

THIS IS IT, GUYS. This is the song I listen to when I’m feel a panic attack coming on or can’t sleep because of my anxiety. It has helped me more times than I can say.

I thought this was going to be a rickroll, but it’s not!

Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.

If you are wise, then, know that you have been created for the glory of God and your own eternal salvation. This is your goal; this is the center of your life; this is the treasure of your heart. May you consider truly good whatever leads you to your goal and truly evil whatever makes you fall away from it.
