I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama

LIES.
that came from taxes I paid.

Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.



#gonna need obamacare to afford treatment for that burn jackass

what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.

Anonymous asked: Kink is an elaborate form of self-harm, y'know. What kind of logic compels you to look at a person running a razor blade across their wrist and say that's awful, yet look at someone choose to get spanked and slapped and say that's absolutely peachy??

pervocracy:

Also “elaborate forms of self-harm” by your incredibly well-thought-out “anything that causes physical pain is exactly the same” definition: marathon running, waxing, martial arts, ear piercing, deep tissue massage.  Go bug people who do those things for once.

But to take your question far more seriously than it deserves…

I do self-harm. I have since I was a child.  I’m glad you have my best interests at heart here, but your kind attempt at supporting my recovery is a little misguided.  Because believe me, if guilt and shame and “what’s wrong with you” and “lol ur a freak” made a person stop it, I’d have quit twenty years ago.

I also do kink.  And the difference is… well.  I won’t get into complicated details here.  I’ll just say this.  When I self-harm, it’s because I hate myself.  When my partner hits me, it’s because he loves me.

-

And seriously, could y’all anti-BDSM people please move beyond the idea that harm and abuse are defined by hitting?  It’s so fuckin’ superficial.  Ooh, hitting, there’s a lot of movement and a big sound, must be a real bad thing.  (Although you don’t even stick to that, because I never see you hassling boxers, even though they hit each other in ways that would horrify most kinksters and take far more long-term damage.  But boxing isn’t a scandalous sex thing that’s secretly fun to think about, huh?)

The worst harm that’s ever been done to me, from without and within, was done with words and with rage.  Without those, hitting is just getting some bruises while you’re having a good time, and shit, people do that skateboarding.

NBC’s Hannibal versus Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon:

Graham stood under the trees for a long time looking at it. He tried to be still inside. In his mind a silver pendulum swung in darkness. He waited until the pendulum was still. (…) [Graham] started at the noise, felt a trickle of fear. He was an old hand at fear. He could manage this one. He simply was afraid, and he could go on anyway. He could see and hear better afraid; he could not speak as concisely, and fear sometimes made him rude. Here, there was nobody left to speak to, there was nobody to offend anymore.

The National Parks #11: Crater Lake, Oregon

I’ve only been to Crater Lake once, and as you can see it was really snowy so the loop road was closed. That’s why the photography here is so limited, but I think they’re good photos nonetheless.
