Okay guys this is kinda important. GQ just came in the mail and for the first time in a long while it had a really important article…

I just sat here for like the last half hour reading this and I’m incredibly appalled at our justice system in regards to the military. The article interviews about 23 men who have all been sexually assaulted in some branch of the military. The PTSD from sexual assault in the military is more prevalent than PTSD from combat…

If you have a chance I suggest reading this article…and the title is a quote that one of the victims Doctor told him…

Hey guys! I’m very impressed and extremely happy to see this post gaining a lot of speed over the last few days! A few people have requested it, so i’ve gone ahead and scanned the pages of the article for those who want to read it, to read. 

So, here it is!

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

reblogging here bc i think the sexualizing of breast cancer and the objectification of women with breast cancer, basically everything so well stated in the above, is a rape culture issue.

restwelland-dreamoflargewomen asked: I saw your post about your NaNoWriMo plan and I was wondering how you set that up?

I’m going to try closer pictures and see if that works. (I am terrible at picture taking, forewarning.)

I always title my scenes so that I know what happens where, so I’d put the number on top and the scene name below. You can see the lined sticky notes are for scene summary and setting notes (since this is fantasy, I’ll need a lot of those). I have a note for POV and Location, and also room to put additional notes.

I’ve color-coded my character notes so tell what each character is at a glance (I have too many characters and not enough colors to give each character a separate color) with blue=main characters, green=supporting characters, orange=minor characters, yellow=characters who appear briefly or ‘one time characters”, and red=antagonists.

I also threw some motivational Chuck Wendig quotes on my wall and made a calender!

(I don’t have a life.)

Thank you for sharing this awesomeness.
