it is ok to wonder if, somewhere out there, someone else is hoping to meet someone like you.

it is ok to wish that you had someone to share and validate your adventures and experiences.

it is ok to want stability and a steady living situation with people to come home to who genuinely care for you and want you around.

it is ok to admit you are lonely.

I’m hosting the Sept meeting of the CHIPRC Zine Zine Club! We’ll be talking about Deafula #7 & Motor City Kitty #23 (which means conversations about things like accessibility + community + support + friendship, hell yeah). Bring some rad zines you’ve read lately to talk up, too!
Grab a copy of the zines through Stranger Danger or Quimby’s!
Wed Sept 10 // 7pm // 858 N. Ashland // See you there

Aw, I wish I could go to this — this is a great idea!

In a study of injuries in 90 patients injured by rubber bullets, one died, 17 suffered permanent disabilities or deformities and 41 required hospital treatment after being fired upon with rubber bullets.

So when the cops claim this is a humane, legitimate crowd control tactic, they’re straight up lying to your face. Don’t let them bullshit you. (x)

Can we just start calling them what they are? Rubber coated bullets. Normal ass, violent, lethal projectiles.

it must be really beautiful to live a life where depression is a foreign concept to you and you can spit cliches like “how could you do it to your children” and try and reason that depressed people shouldn’t commit suicide because people who want to live get murdered sometimes

what a cushy decadent and blissfully ignorant life you must lead to not know or even care  what it feels like to want to die so much that you cant think about anything else

fuck henry rollins truly

Uh, also, didn’t Henry Rollins make his career and the bulk of his punk or hardcore cred or whateverthefuck off singing about how miserable and depressed and enraged he was and how he couldn’t stop thinking about it? WHAT A DOUCHECHUGGER

catagator:

If you’re looking for a way to do something for the people and community of Ferguson, perhaps write a check to their library. 

The address is to the library, this information is from their director, and they don’t have a way to accept anything other than a check at the moment.

We’ve seen what a sanctuary the library has become.

[Image: a screencap of a photo, headline, and the first paragraph of an article. The photo is of honeybees.  The text from the headline and paragraph read: “Another tragic loss - 37 million honeybees found dead in Canada - Barely two weeks after 25,000 bees were found dead in a parking lot in Oregon, another round of bee devastation has been reported. This time, the mass die-off was far worse. More than 37 million honeybees were found dead in Elmwood, Ontario, according to beekeeper Dave Schuit, who lost the bees from 600 hives in June. He and many others are pointing to insecticides called neonicotinoids, used in planting corn and some other crops. ‘Once the corn started to get planted [in Elmwood] our bees died by the millions,’ Schuit said. After a record-breaking loss of honeybees in the U.K., the European Union banned several pesticides in May, including neonicotinoid pesticides.”]

If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.

this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.

last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks

Get excited, motherfuckers.  Without bees, we will die off.  Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs.  Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.

Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY. 
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Giving bees a “bee block” alone is a huge load off their backs! You can buy homes here or  You can even build your own. 
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.
