Thank you all for your continued support. We’re so excited to tell a new, modern version of Anne’s story. Keep watching as we will have some further announcements very soon.
I am so excited to join this group of talented, dedicated women!
Back in October of 2013, I applied for disability after a series of unfortunate surgeries left me quite sick and unable to hold down a job. I finally got my first rejection letter in May 2014, and have since filed an appeal, but am told that it could take another 6 months or more to get a determi…
This is a friend of mine from high school. If you are able to help, awesome! If not, maybe a signal boost?

Hobby Lobby is a corporation. Corporations get certain benefits that people don’t: tax breaks, protection from criminal charges being filed, etc.
If Hobby Lobby would like to be a PERSON WITH RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, then Hobby Lobby should not get the protection of a corporation.
If Hobby Lobby had the courage of their religious convictions, they would not:
- Purchase products from China, which has an egregious policy of forced abortions;
- invest in companies that make the morning after pill, among other medications, that Hobby Lobby wants to forbid their employees from accessing.
If you are a human in the United States, it should not be up to your boss to decide what medicine is appropriate for you to take. It should be up to your doctor. Yes, and insurance company could deny you, but YOUR BOSS SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY DECISIONS WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR HEALTH CARE.
Hobby Lobby is totes cool with vasectomies and erectile dysfunction drugs.
One of the points people up is that Hobby Lobby doesn’t want to cover the Morning After Pill because it’s abortion. Except that the Morning After Pill ISN’T ABORTION. The Morning After Pill delays or inhibits ovulation. IT PREVENTS PREGNANCY. This is science. But maybe you think gravity is a myth, too.
Christian Scientists and Jehovah’s Witnesses traditionally do not believe in medicine. So I imagine you ‘re okay with a business run by someone who practices these faiths to not cover your mom’s chemo, or your diabetes medication, or a blood transfusion for your child.
Point six: (bonus round!)
I appreciate that you are so confident of your convictions that you are willing to put your name on your…oh wait. You’re anonymous.
#DrHobbyLobby prescribes taking up cross-stitch. May I recommend this one?
However loving his parents may have seemed, he [Simon] knew that, scratch the surface, and they’d scream and run away. And here he’s confronted with a guy who is just everyting he thinks is wrong about a person, who comes back for him when the chips are down because he’s on his crew. To me, that’s a real parent, and that is an extremely beautiful thing to get to, and I think it’s very real… But the most important thing about ‘Safe’ was that relationship.

maN I DONT CARE IF SOMEONE HAS A PORNSTARS VAGINA AND THE BIGGEST BOOBS AND THE LONGEST HAIR IF THEY SAY THEY ARE A BOY AND THEY IDENTIFY AS A BOY THEY ARE A FUCKING BOY DO YOU HEAR ME

But they aren’t though
Um, actually yes. There are Asians, ya know, born in Asia with blond or red hair and blue or green eyes. Some of them are presenting albinism, some have Caucasian ancestry (a parent or grandparent(s) or even father back), but the genetics for those physical traits do also exist indigenously in Asia, particularly in people in the Mongolian, Hmong, and Liqian populations.
The point is genetics are crazy complex so it is equally possible for someone to be born with lady junk, but be internally male. Though science is still in its early days of studying this, correlational data from brain scans suggest that the brains of trans people share apparent gender similarities with the group they ID as rather than the group their crotch belongs to.
I mean, if a person can be born intersex, i.e. with both or ambiguous male/female genitals on the outside, it’s really not so far to leap that a person can be born with both genders, one external and one internal. And at the end of the day, we should respect that people know who they are and treat them golden-rule-style as a fellow human.
I kinda ship some blogs with other blogs in hopes that one day you’ll follow each other. So anyone who reblogs this I will pair you up with another blog who I think you are compatible with. Please I’ll do them all!

HEYOOO! Where my OTP?!
This is a lion making a kill in the wild. I know it’s very graphic but I think it’s important to show just how brutal nature can be.
HEY CIRCLE OF LIFE. LIONS HAVE TO EAT TOO. WHEN LIONS DIE, THEY BECOME THE GRASS AND ANTELOPES EAT THE GRASS.
oh my god the giraffes got screwed.
Maybe it’s more a spiral of life? Or like a bicycle wheel with spokes of life?
Would you accept the toilet paper of life? When one role runs out, it is replaced with another.
