I feel so useless sitting here. What can I do to help Ferguson??

natnovna:

there’s a bail and legal fund that’s been set up for those who’ve been arrested 

this person is trying to organize a food drive for school kids in ferguson

national moment of silence 2014 (for victims of police brutality) 

share the following: 

videos of what has happened

links to articles

how to make a tear gas mask

livestream link to the peaceful protests

I also think it’s really important for white people to use our privilege for good and correctly inform people about what’s going on - not by giving your two cents, but by sharing first hand accounts of what’s really happening in Ferguson. It’s also crucial to debunk the anti-black myths circulating (thanks mainstream news). Call out the victim blaming, and set them straight.

Don’t stop talking about it.

I clicked on the paypal link 2 or 3 times but I don't think it worked :(. Can you tell if it did? Also, you inspire me, and I am loving learning from you.

So weird. Nope, no donations. Trying the link again? My paypal email feminishblog@gmail.com if you just want to do it the old fashioned way. I love that you love to learn - that hunger is one of the best gifts in the world. <333

Bipolar disorder can be confused for depression in a lot of cases; it is possible that Robin Williams was in his 'high' state when he was acting/voice acting and in his 'low' state when he was not, but it didn't show because of his family. Virginia Woolf was Bipolar, and she said that she only felt happy when she wrote.

He openly talked about his depression. That does’t discount or dismiss any other diagnosis, but I don’t know why people are trying to insist he didn’t suffer from depression. He did. I don’t want to go on about it anymore. I don’t see a point.

What's being a feminist all about :) sorry I'm new to this and also, why do people go against it if it's normal

I’m here for specific questions, but you should probably first google “feminism” to learn more about this very broad topic (and you can also utilize my tags).

No need to preemptively say sorry. Be unapologetic and dive in! We all have to start somewhere. But you’re only going to get anywhere if you’re willing to put in the time for yourself.
