#Halloween costumes are NOT #consent. Even if they're "provocative," or "slutty" - costumes do not say "I'm asking for it." Always get consent ...Halloween is not an excuse.
A reminder since Halloween is right around the corner and a sexy costume isn't an invitation.

This image from the early 1900’s was deemed ‘too graphic’ to be seen in papers. The photographer Jacob Riis compiled a book, "How the Other Half Lives: Studies Among the Tenements of New York", it showed the effects of poverty. Labor and civil rights reforms during the Progressive Era helped people decrease poverty and join in the up-and-coming consumer culture that gave Americans a new definition of happiness.

Herman Melville quote on humanity~Often I hear people speak of the homeless as Vermont "all drug addicts or alcoholic's"weak,lazy,"Why don't they just get a job",criminals,dangerous,crazy,leeches,and many other narrow-minded, cruel things.I have 1 question,...why the assumptions/judgment??? If this was a civilized world we shouldn't have homeless people.Period.That is not to say they may need a lot of support,& assistamce with learning living skills,and may need treatment for various things,like mental health.What is SO wrong with that?????

Have you thought about the social side of sexual abuse? Some people say that the abuse happens because the women let them happen. If you have been raped or sexually assaulted and you have been blamed, or fear that you may be blamed, I just want you to understand this: You are not to blame. There is nothing you did to make someone hurt you, nor is there anything you could have done differently to prevent or stop it

Especially where I stand as far as my animal rights advocacy and animal rescue is concerned, if you don't want to hear what I have to say, be it verbally or in written form, then too bad because I will not remain silent while thousands of animals are being killed on a daily basis !!!
Truth hurts, doesn't it?
Silence only helps the abuser and hurts his victim.... #Strength #inspiration #quotes

Stand up for what's right!! Even if you have to stand alone.
“As we go about living from day to day, it is almost inevitable that our faith will be challenged. We may at times find ourselves surrounded by others and yet standing in the minority or even standing alone concerning what is acceptable and what is not. Do we have the moral courage to stand firm for our beliefs, even if by so doing we must stand alone?” –Thomas S. Monson - kids room!!!
And people want to keep their opinions in as not to upset. dare I say my thought oit loud I should shut up and not cause a ruckus..
Life Quotes. Stand for what is right even if you have to stand alone.
A life motto
