it’s nearly 2014, wake the fuck up people. girls don’t HAVE to shave, being gay isn’t a choice, racism is pointless, rape isn’t funny and sexism is fucking stupid.
people with anxiety disorders are so brave like we feel unbearable amounts of anxiety over doing things like going to the doctor or getting on a plane or talking on the phone or taking a test but sometimes we find the strength to do those things anyway even though we’re terrified out of our minds and that’s really amazing. people with anxiety are brave as hell
reblog if youre an idiot
Please read this****
If a thief forces you to take money from an ATM, do not argue or resist. What you should do is punch your pin in reverse. EX: if your pin is 1234 you punch 4321. The moment you punch in the reverse, the money will come out but will be stuck in the machine and the machine will immediately alert the police without the theif’s knowledge. Every ATM has this feature.
Reblog this so everyone knows, this happens all the time especially in the city
tumblr teaches me so much more than anyone else does about life situations
but what if your pin backwards is someone elses pin? ex: 1234 is my pin, but backwards 4321 is someone elses pin..
The machine will only accept your pin since you have to swipe your card beforehand.
What if my pin is 1331?
i hope you’re being smart ass
ATM’S DO NOT HAVE THIS FEATURE. I CANNOT BEGIN TO TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES I HAVE ACCIDENTALLY PUT IN A PIN NUMBER BACKWARDS AT AN ATM FOR WHATEVER REASON, AND IT JUST GIVES AN ERROR MESSAGE SAYING INCORRECT PIN.
I ALSO CANNOT BEGIN TO TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES I HAVE HAD TO EXPLAIN TO CUSTOMERS OF THE BANK I USED TO WORK CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR THAT NO, AUTOMATIC TELLER MACHINES DO NOT FUCKING DO THIS.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF SOMEONE GRABS YOU AT AN ATM AND THREATENS YOU FOR ALL YOUR ACCOUNTS MONEY? YOU GIVE THEM YOUR GODDAMN MONEY, CALL THE POLICE, AND THEN CALL THE BANK. THE CAMERA ON THE FUCKING ATM SHOULD HAVE CAUGHT THEIR FACE, AND THERES USUALLY ANOTHER CAMERA NEARBY JUST IN CASE THEY SHIELD THEMSELVES FROM THE ATM CAMERA. CALL THE POLICE FIRST, AND THEN CALL YOUR FUCKING BANK. TELL THE PERSON WHO WORKS FOR THE BANK WHAT HAPPENED, AND THEY WILL TAKE THE POLICE REPORT NUMBER, AND RETURN THE MONEY TO YOUR GODDAMN ACCOUNT.
THAT IS THE FUCKING POLICY IN THE EVENT OF THIS KIND OF CRIME BEING COMMITTED AGAINST ANY BANKING CUSTOMER.
ATM MACHINES DO NOT HAVE THIS FUCKING FEATURE, STOP SPREADING GODDAMN LIES THAT CAN GET PEOPLE FUCKING HURT SHOULD THEY BE IN THAT PREDICAMENT.
this post is really great and informative and i hate to add onto it but OP has abandoned their blog and left potentially triggering material on it so please be careful
in case anyone is interested, in order:

it sounds like the words little kids make up because the words are still too difficult to pronounce for them
nah but i just imagine bro and lil dave staying up all night and bro’s like “when santa’s here we’ll beat him up, kay lil man?”
and Dave is just so stoked that he holds his little katana to his chest and sits on the couch waiting, but he falls asleep so bro goes and gets his presents and scatters them on the floor like they’d been dropped and when dave wakes up the next mroning sad that he couldn’t stay up to fight santaand sees his gifts all over and bro’s like “hey you feel asleep, but santa came and saw you looking so fierce he ran away, but look at all the sweet loot he left!”
John and his dad would do things more traditionally, only instead of a tree they’d have a cake tree. And john would go to bed super early and end up waking up suer early too, but dad would be awake anyway and they’d go open presents suer early.
Rose never really believed in Santa but her mom acted like she did, so she would always tell her to go to bed early but rose would refuse and they’d sit up all night talking about all the things rose had done that year to not earn gifts but her mom would always give them to her anyway.
Jade was always spoiled rotten by her grandfather, but she really believed in santa, but after her granddad died she didn’t get presents on christas and thought Bec had chased Santa away
I’ll start “accepting Christans” when they get the fuck outta places they don’t belong and stop trying to convert people in poorer places to their faith. Jesus is not the answer to why they are in poverty. And I’ll start “accepting Christians” when every single Pray The Gay Away type of therapy stops forever and ever.
hey we’re friends so i’m not trying to start anything, but I’d like to offer my perspective! :)
I’m actually Christian pansexual! I’ve now had to leave five churches because I didn’t feel like I could express my beliefs and myself in the same building. So you are totally right. The homophobic epidemic is very real in the church, as it always has been. And it’s a very distressing, very opressive force that I personally have borne witness too. I can only say that I’m fortunate that I’ve only been attacked verbally, and never physically, so far. And it’s scary, and it’s painful, and it terrifies me every time I consider joining a new church. I’m familiar with the feeling of finding myself in a group full of seemingly funny, kind people that I can relate to, and realizing that they would never treat me with such courtesy if they really knew me.
So I could never pretend like this isn’t a problem. It affects my life every day. I still don’t know how to tell my mother that I’ve stopped going to church for the fifth time because I couldn’t handle the atmosphere. And I know that a lot of others have fared far worse than I ever have.
But the story doesn’t end there.
One of the first people who ever inspired me to be honest about my sexuality was a Christian homosexual friend of mine. He didn’t try to sugarcoat the situation, and he expressed the frustrations that I just expressed. He was living with another family, after coming out to his own family, who were not accepting of him. He found books and resources that honestly evaluated those sections of the Bible, and we explored that together.
I don’t have all the Christian answers. And I sure the fuck don’t know when I’m going back to church, or when I’ll be able to handle the dissappointment emotionally again.
But holding any group responsible for its biggest biggots is wrong. I can’t do anything about those people. Believe me, I wish I could! I wish I could change all their minds. Maybe then I could go back to church.
to everyone reading this: please stop assuming each and every one of us happens to be a caucasian, middle class, heterosexual, cisgendered, trans*phobic, homophobic douche. When you do that, you are the one who is painting an entire group of people with the same brush. And suddenly you are the ignorant one.
^dear gosh thank you very very much

My government teacher, who doesn’t really teach us anything but whatever, brought up this event in our class and asked everybody what they thought. Instantly there were tons of jokes and legitimate shoutings saying, “It means he’s a terrorist.” “He’s selling the country.” “Blah blah blah, hateful bullshit.” I just kinda sighed and said under the rabble, “And we wonder why a lot of the world portrays us as paranoid assholes.” But I’m gonna say the best comment came from the teacher, cause when the talking died down everyone asked him what he thought and he just kind of stood there for a minute then said, “Well, I was just hoping it was a sign that we could maybe move forward to peace and civility.”
