    I don't think ace attorney is copaganda but I do think it falls into the ideology of 'it's a shame that all of those bad people were in positions of power in this system. This problem is surely individual and not systemic and if we can just all promise to be cool then there's no need to change the system' like???when you've that many prosecutors committing murder I think u need to look a little deeper. AA4 did go into it a little bit but lord knows how capcom loves to ignore AA4.

    #AND IN AA6 THE SYSTEM WAS ONLY ALLOWED TO BE CHANGED BECAUSE IT WAS A FOREIGN COUNTRY #and thats more racism than any actual progressive advocacy for change!!!!!AAAAAAAA #yelling emernally

    The Joshua Tree w/Jeff Brisbin

    "We don't get drunk in the moment or get waterlogged in the ocean, of it." says Jeff Brisbin about his son Josh. Jeff's family lost Josh ten years ago to suicide. Josh lives on in their memory and under the Joshua Tree. They share the same old moon. 

    Jeff Brisbin, a Singer/Songwriter from Saratoga Springs, NY is our guest this week. Jeff's youngest of three sons and second to youngest child died by suicide nearly ten years ago. Jeff was the first person to kiss his son coming into this world and upon his departure. 

    Community Hospice offered the Brisbin family grief counseling. If you are struggling, click the link for the hospice grief support information to find your county.

    filling an entire building with bright blue florescent lights to “help autistic people” is the equivalent of showing up to an anti-capitalist/pro-anarchist riot with an Amazon branded crowbar.

    I Exhaled: The George Floyd Verdict Aftermath

    A bonus post today but it was appropriate to speak up. I Exhaled: The George Floyd Verdict Aftermath. Happy Reading!

    To exhale is an amazing feeling. An intense need to release is human. Our bodies want to feel real. The painful trauma of watching George Floyd’s need for breath haunts me. It took the breathe out of me. Thinking of “I. Can’t. Breathe.” Being me, a black female of Haitian descent, there are times where I must remind myself to breathe. Though I could tell you the scientific and anatomical methods…

    ok, so i live by a dentist office where they put in a new ramp for wheelchair users in case of emergencies. but the ramp looks incredibly steep and it stops directly at the ground and then there’s a faint uphill immediately after. it doesn’t seem ada compliant, and i’m wondering what i could do? i mean, i don’t even know if what i’m talking about is warranted at all, but it looks really steep, and i’m thinking wheelchair users would just get stuck at the crevice...

    there's a room at my school for when people need to stim or need silence and I just heard a girl say she's using it to practice for her choir auditions??? like, babe, people need that space? you can practice somewhere else?? what the fuck. I've never used the green room because I'm anxious that people will see me differently (yay stigma at my school and the fact that when I have a meltdown people assume I have autism when it's adhd & my school is full of horrible assholes who think autism is horrible and bad) so I just use my headphones and shit but my god, there are people in this school who NEED that space? it's wrong for a neurotypical to take a space made for neurodivergent people and use it for singing practice. there are soundproof rooms in the choir area FOR this purpose. Goddamn.

    [GUEST PANELIST AT "SOCIETY'S STANDARDS THROUGH DIFFERENT LENSES", A DISCUSSION EVENT ORGANIZED BY GLOBAL UNITED YOUTH STRIPES] It was a great pleasure to discuss about society's standards, body image, social media, cancel culture and gender equality in different industries on Global United Youth Stripes discussion event yesterday! Thank you so much for having me as one of the panelists, alongside other amazing global leaders from various disciplines, such as Rina Bulliqi, Nancy Williams and Ting Ting Li. I have also gained fruitful knowledge from other panelists, as they have possessed great amount of experiences in their own fields, such as business, retail and social justice advocacy. Hopefully the discussion is able to give us newer perspectives and approaches towards society's standards in general, as well as mediums used to spread the notions, such as social media.

    If you intentionally trigger somebody's paranoia or their delusions, this is a reminder that you can do better and the people you are abusing deserve better. Mental health is not a toy - people who experience delusions or paranoia do not exist for your entertainment.

    The nØkill Network is dedicated to promoting no-kill animal shelters, organizations, and rescue groups by helping people learn about and locate these organizations. The nØkill Network also strives to promote the no-kill model so that shelters that do not currently have a no-kill policy might take the initiative needed to gain the public, governmental, and financial support necessary to become a no-kill organization. Shelters that historically euthanized healthy, adoptable animals have been able to make this change - it is possible and we hope that this community can help to provide the ideas, education, and support necessary to make it happen for the rest of the shelters throughout the nation. Please join the community to learn, participate, and support the mission!

    when will people understand that trying to cure autism is rooted in ableism and eugenics? we are not burdens to society and every single one of us, including future autistic kids, deserve the right to live.
