The police caught and arrested him. But despite the heinous and violent crimes he was credibly accused of, he was released without bail. He was free for three months AFTER police discovered that he was abusing 12 underage black girls.
Chrystul Kizer was raped and trafficked by this man for years.
Free Chrystul Kizer!!!
Pls spread help spread the news!
this isn’t an old post; the screenshot has a typo: her hearing is scheduled for february of 2020 and if she is convicted as charged she will spend life in prison. she will likely never be granted clemency. her case and the court are far more stacked against her than they were for cyntoia brown, who regardless still spent 15 years in prison.
please sign the petition.

I don’t care what other people say, you shouldn’t be expected to know what you want in life in your 20’s! After spending your entire life with a schedule that’s been made for you (school, extra curricular activities, family commitments etc.), your 20’s is your first real experience of independence. Naturally you are still going to be learning the ropes, trying to balance your own responsibilities with work and with free time for yourself. It’s gonna be hard and it’s gonna be a challenge because it’s new? Take this time for yourself to find out what YOU want to make of your life. There’s no rush, there’s no time limit and there’s no point scoring system to who has the best life. In this new found freedom, just take this opportunity to be YOU and discover yourself.
ive been on tumblr a long time and i remember when everyone said “oh don’t romanticize mental illness” and it was agreed that doing that was gross and a good way to kill people indirectly
but somehow we’ve come full circle and there are people who legit defend their right to be anti-recovery there are people who don’t want to get better and spread the idea that you can’t get better as if it’s gospel and it’s fucking frightening to me bc nobody seems to want to say “hey? this is toxic and untrue and is your disease speaking, and it’s not something you should accept.”
and i feel like every recovery post gets about 500 of these people saying “this isn’t something that will work” “cool karen i’m depressed” “maybe it worked for you but it won’t work for other people” and that’s… just… im so sorry if you’re 15. i’m sorry if you’re in high school and watching grown adults tell you it doesn’t get better. that nobody says that with time and help and patience the world stops being so heavy, that accepting your illness as a fact is one thing but accepting it as the only way to be is just wrong, that you can learn to live with it and still find some degree of “happy”…. if i had seen this shit back when i was … oh god starting at 12 when i was already self-harming …. i think i’d have actually honest-to-god killed myself. not a joke, not a funny tumblr punchline, i would have actually just killed myself.
i’m saying this right here and right now to the adults on this site. if you for any reason shoot down positivity that’s causing no harm - you might have indirectly worsened someone else’s condition, and you should try and do better in the future. if you find it necessary to tell people “recovery is a lie”, you need to do better. i know everyone has different circumstances, but i also know that mental illness behaves in such a way that everyone thinks they can’t recover. if you feel like you should be spreading the Word Of Relapse, you are causing toxic language to be normalized and you need to do better.
im team “cool karen ive got depression and that means i’m going to try this because i’ve got to try something” i’m team “romanticize recovery” i’m team “it isn’t working now but it might in the future and it’s worth staying to find out” im team “hey this didn’t work for me but it might help somebody else out”
fuck guys it shouldn’t be an unpopular opinion to say “i don’t want any of you to die”.
Oh thank fuck someone finally said it!
I’m sometimes very leery of tumblr’s tendency to assume things are fixed traits and build identities around them, for exactly this reason.
When I was a teenager I believed it was impossible to ever heal, or even cope. It very nearly did kill me. Despair is tempting, but it is a false god.
I see some folks in the notes talking about “but I have XYZ and it’s lifelong, how am I supposed to be pro-recovery?” And I want to throw out there that recovery isn’t always about reaching some end goal of “cured,” recovery is about getting better and getting to somewhere manageable. I have some conditions both physical and mental that are lifelong, that won’t go away. For example, I can never un-traumatize myself. However, I’m a lot more recovered than I was a month ago, a year ago, ten years ago. I don’t have panic attacks as frequently, I’m more knowledgeable of my triggers so I can avoid them easier, I’m better at setting boundaries and taking care of myself. There’s even small things, like how I do my laundry before I have no clothes left (usually.)
Recovery looks different for everyone. Maybe your recovery isn’t being able bodied and mental illness free, but just being able to enjoy a night out with friends every once in a while.

Yohoo potatoes, I’m back with another *whips out a megaphone out of nowhere* “long ass post” (is that my patent now?) for you guys! This one could help out with your studyjo/bujo (if you don’t know what a studyjo is don’t worry I’ll link it later) and organising that potato life to make the most of it!
Why should I use a bullet journal?

- You will 120% forget about tat assignment deadline unless you’re reminded of it
- You get to laugh at your past self after 20 years or so
- It’s therapeutic and all that ish
- You’ll like it because it’s being productive while actually kinda procrastinating (aren’t we bosses at procrastinating?)
- Memories :)
Bolded ones are the trackers I am using and are potato proofed

- WORD OF THE DAY PAGE : one word every day

A/N: I know I said this about literally everything I write but this is self-indulgence af because please I just want someone to rant to when I have writer’s blocks (which is all the time) you get me? (Also, I’m not saying you have to do it but I’m def attaching a paper crane tutorial so everyone can get the whole iMmErSivE reading experience)
Description: Your unconventional way of handling writer’s block caught the eyes of a certain bird boi.

You knew that there were more productive things you could be doing right now, sitting at the outdoor area of a cafe with a half-empty mug next to a laptop but your brain felt more like a pile of mush and every word you typed out in the last 20 minutes made you cringe, which was exactly why you stopped doing that all together.
Refusing to even look at the untouched word document on the laptop in front of you, you pulled out a pile of coloured square paper and started folding it in a routine you knew at the back of your head. You sighed as you stared at the small crane in your palm. Your odd habit of folding paper cranes whenever you got stuck on something came when you were so infuriated with not doing anything that you started toying around with the napkin provided by the cafe. After getting bored of bunching up the paper towel repeatedly, you started looking up easy origami tutorials to forge the sense that you actually did something and wasn’t wasting your time by making something presentable. You settled with the elementary school level crane and it became the only origami you were semi-decent at making. You kept all the cranes you made from your writing sessions at the cafe in a paper bag you carried around all the time. The bag was half full and you weren’t sure how to feel about it, knowing full well that it implied that you spent a lot of the time you planned to use on writing making little to no progress.
It had become a routine for you almost. Going to the cafe with your laptop and notes, ordering coffee with as much extra shots of espresso the shop offers, open your document, your brain stops working midway, shifting your focus to folding cranes as an outlet for your frustration and self-loathing. So productive, so good for your mental health-
“I thought you are supposed to be writing?”
Oh, all that and being interrupted by this oversized blonde pigeon.
You did not stop even when you heard the sound of the man in front of you pulling the chair and sitting down next to you uninvited. Pressing down on the paper to form the beak, you threw the origami into the paper bag with the rest of its friends before finally lifting your head to meet the amused gaze of the winged hero.
“And I thought that heroes are supposed to be real preoccupied with saving people and all that,” you said as you lifted your brow, “I’m really starting to question if you are getting any work done, how come you’re always around?”
Hawks laughed, attracting the attention of by passers as some of them gawked at the number 2 hero who was so casually sitting there with someone who looked like they wanted nothing more than to wipe his grin off his face. “What can I say? You’re my favourite writer and I’m just trying to urge you to put new stuff out there.” he said, not without adding a wink at the end and you groaned in annoyance. You weren’t gonna lie and say that you didn’t feel the slightest bit flattered when the charming hero approached you for the first time, saying that he read your work. But as he showed up more and more frequently and invited himself to watch and gave snarky remarks as you struggled, it was like Hawks was trying to get you to be annoyed at him deliberately.
“What’s with you and paper cranes anyways? Ever think about switching things up and fold something else?” he asked, reaching for one of your creations and fiddled with it curiously despite the glare you were sending him.
“Cranes require the least effort,” you said as you leaned forward to snatch it out of his hand and groaned when he pulled back with a knowing smirk, “not sure if you can tell but I’m already on the verge of a breakdown. I’m not gonna put even more stress into doing something that is supposed to take my mind off of my lack of productivity.”
You let out a defeated sigh and fell back onto your seat which only made his smirk grew wider. He examined the origami for a little longer and shifted his stare back at you, “Can I have one?”
“What? No!” you snorted and launched forward to take it back as he let his guard down. You gave the hero a disbelieved look as he gave you a childish pout that was so unfitted for someone of his status. Before you met him, you always thought of the pro-hero as a suave and respectable person. Well, you still sorta did, but to think that this man was someone people rely on was something that became hard for you to imagine, especially seeing how child-like he was in front of you.
“But whyyyyy,” Hawks whined and motioned to the paper back on the floor next to you, “you had made so many! What difference will it make if I take one?”
“They’re all my children and I love every single one of them,” you said as you dramatically placed a palm on your chest where your heart would be at, “you are dead wrong if you think I’ll ever let someone take away one of my babies.”
Hawks snickered, “God, are all writers so weird?”
“I don’t know, are all heroes annoying?”
He threw his hands in the air in defeat, “Fine, I won’t force you to separate from your children.”
“Good.” you nodded as you threw yet another crane into the bag.
“As much as I like talking about your crane obsession, I need to get going. Still a long way to go until heroes can properly slack off.” he said as he got up and stretched. HIs wings spanning widely as he extended his arms, threatening to push your things off the table and hit you in the face.
You quickly dodged the assault of his wings and bent down to shield your precious laptop, “Mind your ducking wings, you blind goose.”
He let out a full body laugh at your insult and started walking away, only to turn on his heels as he heard you call out for him. “Hawks?”
“Put it back.”
He groaned as he reached into the inner pocket of his jacket to pull out a tiny paper crane. He muttered something about you being telepathic while he let the origami slid from his palm into the paper bag where it belong and you couldn’t contain your grin despite your best effort.

Hiya guys, some of you may know I am at university at the moment studying law. What you probably don’t know is that I am struggling. Money is an issue and whilst I have a part-time job (and a loan), I am still unable to cover all my expenses. I have put together a pdf (80 pages) of a collection of over 250 of my poems. They date from 2016- as recent as last week. The collection is called ‘I dreamt you read my diary’, because it literally may as well be my diary!
To get a copy emailed to you, I am asking for £5 (or the equivalent in your currency) So simply, send £5 to my PayPal and make sure you include your email address as a message with it, so I know where to send the collection!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! Also if you don’t want/ can’t afford to purchase the collection, I completely understand, even a like or reblog would help me x
“Experiencing loss is a part of life. Some people lose their first love. Some lose the harmony in the relationship. Some people lose hope. Others lose patience while others lose their soul. Some lose their certainties. Some have nothing to lose.”

Hey, I don’t like to talk about this but I don’t like my mother to beg men for money. Also, I can’t afford to fix my laptop. all my projects and work is gone. I’m determined to recreate it again.
Thank you for those who share! 😊

So we are looking to rent in the LA area. We need $900 more to make it. If you know anyone who is renting a room for two by the end of the month. Hmu. Thank you!
We are still sleeping on the floor with a tiny blanket to share.
My sociology professor had a really good metaphor for privilege today. She didn’t talk about race or gender or orientation or class, she talked about being left-handed.
A left-handed person walks into most classrooms and immediately is made aware of their left-handedness - they have to sit in a left-handed seat, which restricts their choices of where to sit. If there are not enough left-handed seats, they will have to sit in a right-handed seat and be continuously aware of their left-handedness. (There are other examples like left-handed scissors or baseball mitts as well.)
Meanwhile, right-handed people have much more choice about where to sit, and almost never have to think about their right-handedness.
Does this mean right-handed people are bad? No.
Does it mean that we should replace all right-handed desks with left-handed desks? No.
But could we maybe use different desk styles that can accommodate everyone and makes it so nobody has limited options or constant awareness that they are different? Yes.
Now think of this as a metaphor. For social class. For race. For ethnicity. For gender. For orientation. For anything else that sets us apart.
WHY DOESN’T THIS HAVE MORE NOTES?
Because I posted it about 90 seconds ago, calm down.
vbekvjnfjv the reply tho
Some of ya’ll have never seen Removing the Glove and it shows.
some of yall never grew up left handed and it shows
Please help me get a new laptop!!!
Hey y’all this is K your local black bi girl❤️! School is starting up soon and I’m in a lot of trouble. My laptop that I brought recently started to break down and I as of right now can not afford to get it fixed.
This laptop has all my important things on it. School documents, personal photos, my art, and legal documents. I primarily use this laptop for school and other personal matters relating to my life. Also my university is located near the water and the temperatures drop to below freezing in the winter time. The reason I brought the laptop in the first place was so I didn’t need to walk to the library anymore after my toes almost got frost bite. Right now I am planning to have breast reduction surgery hopefully this month or next month and I’m gonna need my laptop to to contact my school and my job (my phone is refurbished and sometimes acts up I can not rely on it). I am looking to buy another laptop and the cost would be about $335. I’m struggling with money right now and I’m trying to save up as much as I can for school even if it’s just one to two cents or a reblog I would greatly appreciate it.
My cashapp is $Qwlala
Hey guys still at $0!
Because of the timing of my surgery and financial reasons me and my school decided it would be better for me to take a semester off so I won’t be going back to school until January. On September 30th I will be going into surgery and my recovery period will be about about 6 weeks (if nothing goes wrong during the surgery or during the time I’m healing). Again financially me and my family aren’t at a good place right now because my mother is saving her money to get me to doctor appointments, buying groceries so me and my brother don’t starve, and trying to save money for the winter. My laptop is still broken and really and truly need one before I go back to school. Like stated in the previous posts above a simple reblog or even one cent would be extremely helpful.
Hey guys I officially got my surgery!!! I got home yesterday but I was to drugged up and in pain to post anything however today I’m feeling a lot better and I’m healing up nicely! I’m still at $0 so again even if it’s a penny or a simple reblog I’ll be very appreciative to both.
Forgot to add (my bad 😖😖) I got home two weeks ago and I’m still healing up nicely (in a lot of pain though 😭😭😭) and I’m still at $0 again reblogs are appreciated
I just got $300 dollars and I’m literally sitting here crying and my a Mom is so freaking happy and she’s so thankful and she wants to say thank you and blessing on 2 you!!!! I’m not gonna give names (I don’t know if they want their name out there) but u know who you are so thank you thank you thank you!!!! Now I only need $35! Again thank you so much!
