“I find the Sumia and Henry pairing adorable and I wish more people agreed with me. Of all the Sumia pairings, this one seems the least common.”

this happens to me every single time i am sick to death of seeing the same thing
why are you reblogging this oh god please don’t
Because you’re right
Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.
Spreading the word.
My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to bitch slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.
She nodded and accepted my salty language like a seasoned sailor.
I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.
I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.
Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.
Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.
Get angry. Be in command.
what have you done to my basket

What if there are actually multiple souls in your body but you’re the most powerful one so you have control over your body and the voices you hear in your head are just the weaker souls talking to you.
and maybe people with schizophrenia don’t have an assertive soul so all of the souls are fighting to take over
both of you write a book together

Is it legal for a prospective employer to ask you what medications you’re on?
this is so important that i’m reblogging it. NO. NO IT IS NOT. read more.
Very important! All my chronic condition people take note.
Employers cannot ask ANY health status information before extending a job offer. They can’t specify it in the job description (only required physical abilities as pertains to essential functions of the job, like “can lift X pounds” for a warehouse kind of job or something), they can’t ask or try to get you to talk about it in your interview. They can only ask about conditions that would affect what accommodations you’d need in the workplace, and they can only do that AFTER making an official offer of employment and you officially accepting. At which point, if they find out what you need and then retract their offer, you have grounds for an EEO discrimination complaint. At no point EVER should your meds be relevant to the conversation unless you’re accepting a position that requires you to operate heavy machinery or vehicles and the medication you take makes that unsafe, because then it’s a legit safety concern both for you and anyone you’d be working with.
