I am 23, but I look about 15. My husband is 25 and looks extremely young as well. Everywhere I go people look at me like I’m a teen mom or something. I personally have nothing against teen moms, I have several in my family. BUT, it sucks to be looked down on just because I look young.
I am 23,…
Yep. I’m also 23, and apparently look about 16. I did get pregnant accidentally two months before my wedding, but I am married. My husband and I do have some debts still, but we’re paying them off. My house is usually clean and tidy, my daughter is always fed and in clean clothes appropriate to the weather.
Yes, I am a young mum. But I am not an immature mum.
I asked my doctor, my delivery nurse friend, and many mommies about this. I’m currently 28 weeks right now and i’ve only got a couple stretch marks on my tummy. The genetics thing is mostly true. Everyone i’ve asked (including the professionals in the pregnancy field) and unfortunately, they all agree that if your mom had them, you’ll have them. I was told that putting on coco butter during pregnancy is a waste of time. I’m doing it anyways… but it doesn’t help my stretch marks at all. I’ve been putting it on every day since 15 weeks and my marks starting showing at 25 weeks. I HAVE been told that AFTER you give birth if you put the cream on it helps to fade the marks. And i’ve been told that palmers coco butter is the best stuff on the market.
Hopefully your momma didn’t have them! My mom had “a few” she says, and that’s what it looks like I’m going to have. It could always be worse, remember that! Good luck!
A lot of it does have to do with genetics, but you can do stuff to help, especially afterwards. The idea with using things like cocoa butter during pregnancy is to help support your skin’s elasticity - if that’s going to help, so will drinking plenty of water and making sure you’re getting your nutrients. Post-birth, keeping your skin moisturised and well-fed will help support the healing of the skin, helping speed up the fading process a bit.
A student blows up at a teacher, drops the F-bomb. The usual approach at Lincoln – and, safe to say, at most high schools in this country – is automatic suspension. Instead, Sporleder sits the kid down and says quietly: “Wow. Are you OK? This doesn’t sound like you. What’s going on?”
He gets even more specific: “You really looked stressed. On a scale of 1-10, where are you with your anger?” The kid was ready. Ready, man! For an anger blast to his face….”How could you do that?” “What’s wrong with you?”…and for the big boot out of school. But he was NOT ready for kindness.
The armor-plated defenses melt like ice under a blowtorch and the words pour out: “My dad’s an alcoholic. He’s promised me things my whole life and never keeps those promises.” The waterfall of words that go deep into his home life, which is no piece of breeze, end with this sentence: “I shouldn’t have blown up at the teacher.” Whoa.
I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT GOD DOES NOT HATE GAY PEOPLE.
You are a Pastor, and most Christians believe that God speaks through you. When you openly denounce being gay in your sermon, I lose all respect for you.
I just don’t understand how as a CHRISTIAN you can openly hate a group of people and why you think God thinks its ok, BECAUSE ITS NOT. It is just so HYPOCRITICAL
File under: Reasons I stopped going to church.
I agree. God does not hate people because of what they do. There are several verses in the Bible that are generally taken to mean that homosexuality is a sin (though I do know of a few Christians who don’t believe they are meant to be taken that way). However, NOWHERE in the Bible does it say “hate people because they do something this verse here says is wrong”.
If anyone is going to hate people for such things, then take a good hard look at yourself. EVERYONE has done stuff that, if you look around in the Bible, you’ll find a verse saying it’s wrong. We’re not here to judge and hate, we’re here to love and encourage people.
I need help editing this page! I love the theme but I need to be able to have an about page and bio page. Message me!
This is probably going to be too long for an ask. So here it is.
You can add pages that will stick around no matter what your theme is or how many times you change it. Go to your edit theme page. Scroll down the bar on the left until you see the little “Pages” button. Click that, click “add page”. You’ll get a pop up window.
From the drop-down list at the top, you’ll probably want to have “Standard Layout” selected. That’s the default.
Next you’ll need to put in your URL. It’ll already have your tumblr URL, after the last ‘/’ you need to add something like ‘about’ or ‘bio’.
Next is the page title - again, just something like ‘About’ or ‘Bio’. In the “show a link to this page” you’ll want to click the checkbox so that it’ll show up on your Tumblr.
Next you’ve got the Body. This is where you add in everything that people will see when they go to that page. It has the standard Tumblr formatting buttons, and you can also edit the HTML if you’re good at that.
my mom was driven to her rapist’s work and forced to apologize for getting him arrested. Because he never spent a day in jail. Because without the abortion she received to terminate the pregnancy he caused, I would not be here. Because her mother has still never apologized for marrying the monster that did it. Because people still think it’s okay to use the word “rape” for anything other than the awful act it is. Because my mom grew up in a foster home and accepted abusive behavior from other men in her life until she was almost 30. Because safe sex testing was not the norm and it caused her to almost die from chlamydia. Because strong women like my mom still get blamed for their actions instead of praised for the bravery to speak out.
Because many women I know still have to deal with these injustices 30 years later.
This is VERY real. Please report this person. I don’t care if you don’t have a facebook account. PLEASE report this person. Look at their photos. Wall photos to be exact. They dismembered their cat for satanic rituals. And they post photos on their “journey”. You can see them putting a knife in the cats mouth. Cutting off it’s head and skinning the poor thing. And show many other shit that just makes me want to throw up. Yes this IS real. If you don’t know how to report someone go to the top right corner of the profile where there is a gear and click it. There should be a report/block feature. If not that. Go to the bottom under the subscriptions and there should be report/block feature there too. PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIFYING AND NO CAT SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE THIS OR DISMEMBERED LIKE THAT.
GOOD WORK TUMBLR! Facebook has taken down the page.
Uh, I think that people are more bothered by the fact that she’s pretty much an entitled, shitty human being vs. her music being bad. I hate Lady Gaga and think she’s shit, but not because I hate her music. Because I think she sucks as a person.
How is she entitled and a shitty human being?
Hmm, let’s just take on what she says in the photoset.
“Crazy Koreans” is pretty racist, not to mention ableist.
She’s also stated that her “vagina was offended” by her gender being questioned.
There’s more, I’m sure. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Well I, as a disabled person, am not offended by her use of the word “crazy”. “Crazy” has evolved to mean several different things. (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/crazy) I believe she was using one of the variants for the second definition.
Though I am not Korean, I can’t say how I feel about her use of the word “Korean”. However, it seems that a lot of (maybe not all, but at least a lot) Koreans didn’t mind it since they paid a shit ton of money to see her show, and her show that night was the 2nd largest show in the history of Korea. Also, Koreans tried petitioning the government to let minors go to the show which sent a message of “We like this performer. We want her in our country. We believe in her message.”
If the attitude of Koreans towards Gaga was shifted in that a majority of Koreans did NOT want her there, then, yes. Gaga, at least in this instance, would have been a shitty person as well as terrible at marketing herself I might add.
However, I can say that I wouldn’t be offended if, say, a French person came to the US and said “You crazy Americans.”
About the “vagina was offended” comment. I believe that it was said to prove a point to say “I have a vagina so I’m offended that people would assume that I’m male because being a female is a part of my identity, and I don’t like it when people question my identity.”
Just my opinion.
As disabled people, I don’;t think we as people get a say in whether or not “crazy” is ableist or not, as “crazy” is a slur towards those with psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and personality disorders. It’s not up to disabled people to decided whether or not “crazy” is offensive (note: it IS).
With regards to her “vagina is offended” comment, that was cissexist. If she was really the “ally” she claims to be, she wouldn’t act like being trans was disgusting. She doesn’t want to be seen as “one of them” and her comment WAS offensive.
I’m not meaning this to be mean or anything, but as a disabled person, I don’t think you have a say in how “crazy” should be used. I don’t either.
Quick question, honestly. This is out of ignorance on my part, but…say someone with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or a personality disorder states that they did not find the words “crazy” or “insane” offensive, namely in phrases like “that’s crazy!” (I remember someone a while back with both bipolar and BPD stating that she was not bothered by the words, and that she found it irritating how people make such a big deal out of it.) But then there’s another person with the same disorder(s) who states that, yes, the words are extremely harmful, regardless of context and who’s saying them.
How exactly do you choose who to listen to?
(Sorry if I’ve said something offensive here, but this is something that confuses me.)
Personally? I’d err on the side of caution. It’s fine to reclaim a word that’s been used against people who have mental illnesses, if you have one yourself (I do). But if another person with a mental illness of some sort tells you that it’s ableist and it bothers them, well, I would stop using it. Just like if someone who is autistic tells me that they would prefer to be called “person with autism” — I’d follow their wishes, even if that’s not how I would refer to myself.
I have a bunch of mental illnesses, including psychosis and borderline personality disorder. I put up with people using the word ‘crazy’ but I don’t like it. To me, it is offensive, and I like that people would err on the side of caution about that.
“Eating disorders are addictions. You become addicted to a number of their effects. The two most basic and important: the pure adrenaline that kicks in when you’re starving—you’re high as a kite, sleepless, full of a frenetic, unstable energy—and the heightened intensity of experience that eating disorders initially induce. At first, everything tastes and smells intense, tactile experience is intense, your own drive and energy themselves are intense and focused. Your sense of power is very, very intense. You are not aware, however, that you are quickly becoming addicted.”—Marya Hornbacher, Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia (via sempre—giovane)
Planned Parenthood is excited to be launching our new Tumblr that’s all about sexual and reproductive health – bodies, birth control, relationship issues, “is it normal for this to do this?” type things. In the coming weeks and months we’ll be sharing what we know, answering questions, and just… tumblring.
“The reality is that fat people are often supported in hating their bodies, in starving themselves, in engaging in unsafe exercise, and in seeking out weight loss by any means necessary. A thin person who does these things is considered mentally ill. A fat person who does these things is redeemed by them. This is why our culture has no concept of a fat person who also has an eating disorder. If you’re fat, it’s not an eating disorder — it’s a lifestyle change.”—
I just want to nail this to every stable surface I can find. I cannot count the amount of times that I’ve seen fat folks being encouraged, cajoled, and even forced into behaviors that would be recognized as disordered eating/exercising patterns in thin folks.
Pretty much everything that’s done on shows like The Biggest Loser would be called out as pro-ana/pro-orthorexia in a thin person. Exercising past the point that it hurts, to the point where you’re throwing up, even injuring yourself? Berating yourself because you didn’t lose ENOUGH weight this week? Constantly talking about how fat is weakness and thinness will make everything better, about how you can’t stand to be your current weight anymore? Emphasis on weight as a sign of how much control, strength, and worth you have? Viewing food as bad, as a temptation to sin? Constant sharing and talking about tips on how to minimize food intake, how to lose weight?
That sounds exactly like every pro-ana/pro-mia blog I’ve ever seen. It’s also what fat people are told we need to be doing to ourselves until we’re thin.
Timothy McGee, Temperence Brennan and Richard Castle are all bestselling mysterywriters in their perspective universes, wouldn't it make sense that they would all know each other? #CASTLE/BONES/NCISCROSSOVER
I was just on WoW for what seemed like forever, doing Ashenvale quests, because I thought it was a wonderful idea to start working towards Loremaster.
I feel like a zombie. mein gott.
But I never have to go back to that hateful place. :)
I’m so tired that I kept doing stupid thing though like…
I’ve got EK Loremaster, working my way to getting all of them. I think I’m about a third of the way there, it can get soooo boring. If you don’t have it already, an add-on like Loremaster (from the Curse website) helps so much.

My husband is on his way to being a doctor. I won’t lie, I love it.
Lol people talking about things and being judgmental even though they’ve never experienced what it’s like, fuck you.
You do not know what it is like to live with an Autistic child 24/7, therefore you have no fucking right to judge the parenting of this child.
YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND, DO NOT JUDGE THESE PARENTS.
You have no idea how difficult it is, how much of a struggle it is both emotionally and physically.
I don’t know what this vent is referring to, so I’m just going to comment based on what you’ve put here.
I do know what it’s like to not only parent two autistic kids, but to be autistic myself. And you know what? The challenges may be different, but they’re by no means HARDER. Parenting is hard. Parenting an autistic child isn’t harder; it’s jsut different.
And if you’re struggling that much emotionally with raising an autistic child, may I suggest seeking help, because in most cases? It’s because you have deep seated ableist beliefs about how you’ve got it so much worse or that you’ve lost who your child was MEANT to be.
And that, frankly, is bullshit.
^This. Parenting any child is hard. With an autistic child, in my (very limited) experience, you do things with a different perspective.
