Queer, ace, survivor.

I suffer from PTSD, depression and anxiety, as well as several bone diseases that cause me chronic pain and disfigurement.
I am a survivor of abusive relationships and rape.

This whole blog has a trigger warning as I write about my experiences attempting to recover from what I can and live with what I can't.

“In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.”

ASD Silicone Mood Bands

I found the mood bands from an ableist post and I figured a lot of autistic peeps would like the link to them so they can purchase them for themselves… I don’t know a lot about the company or the quality of the bands.

i’d get these but i think people would ignore them anyhow

<3 Brilliant idea.

GUYS PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO HOW THEY ARE ATTACKING AND RAIDING MUSLIM HOMES IN AUSTRALIA

the police are attacking muslims in their homes in the middle of the night, arresting women in their beds, men in the morning, attacing and humiliating us all

life is getting scary here for the muslims 

I didn’t believe this but here are some sources

Summary: Apparently they were trying to find local ISIS supporters and foil an alleged plot to carry out what PM Tony Abbot called “demonstration killings” to show that ISIS isn’t just located in the Middle East. They claim to have intelligence that informed this decision to raid. The raids were carried in 12 suburbs and involved around 900 police officers. They arrested 15 people during the raids, but have only released the details of one prisoner who had direct contact with the Australian Muslim who they know is an active recruiter for ISIS. 

To me this sounds like an incredibly overblown response to an issue that could’ve been solved by one arrest. Please keep in mind that the Washington Post, the last source, is more conservative. Since these raids have happen, protests have erupted all over Australia and the Muslim Australian community is understandably fucking pissed. Don’t let this go unnoticed.

unsurprisingly, abbot reverts to cold-war tactics to distract the populace from his appalling politics and justify continued human rights abuses on christmas island. cool. what a rancid butthole.

Further proof Australia isn’t as great as people seem to think it is. 

For those who think that I’m being unreasonable for saying that the raids were unreasonable and have an agenda.

You don’t send out 900 cops, end up with one arrest, and use it to create a panic.

I love it when people deliberately miss my point. It’s my favourite.

It must take an extraordinary amount of effort on your part to read everything I’ve written, ignore what I said, disregard my sources and then argue “teh principle”

Go you. 

“We so wanted to avoid iPod jokes but we wanted Cap to adjust to the new world, so it was about emotions, it was about ethics, it was about morality. It’s “How far have we come since you went into the ice?” not “How short have the skirts become?””

and of mcu fandom know how many fics I’ve read where Steve suffers from culture shock in the form of ipods, computers, and fucking toasters? To many.  

What bothers me about it is that it takes what Steve is going through and turns him into the punchline instead of like what we saw in Cap2 where the moment is funny, but not at the expense of Steve’s feelings.  So you’re laughing with Steve, not at Steve.

You know the political agenda of the reporting is in the extreme when even my racist boss agrees with me. 

Could have knocked me over with a feather, he actually started the conversation too.

theabbottchronicles:

Tony Abbott has raised the public terror threat from “Medium” to “High.”

"A terror attack is likely to occur… we have nothing to indicate any specific plots… but there’s a possibilities of plots. There’s potential. So be concerned."

"So… things are terrible?" asked a concerned journalist.

"Well, no. Go about life as usual. You’re not at risk."

"I thought we were?"

"Well you are… but don’t worry about it."

"So, you’re bringing it to our attention that we shouldn’t be concerned about the increased danger?"

"Yeah," said Tony. "There is no need to worry about increased threats. Not while the Liberal government is on it. Trust me. I’ve seen my fair share of student protesters, I know how to handle a scary situation… but don’t be scared… of all that danger you should think about… which is real but not important but still kinda important…"

He then dropped a very pathetic smoke bomb that failed to cover him as the smoke quickly blew away, and backed away slowly while waving his arms and whispering “terrorism is coming for us, but don’t worry about it…”

Attention!

delacroixed:

Substantial new powers of arrest for police officers under proposed amendments to Australian anti-terrorism laws have been drafted

… under the proposed changes, police officers would only need to “suspect on reasonable grounds” that a person has committed or is committing a terrorism offence.

Gee, how fucking coincidental.

Anonymous said: I agree that the media is instilling the 'fear of god' by broadcasting the terrorist plans. But I just wonder if because Abbot publicly announced our terrorist alert to high (like is he not supposed to tell Australia about this?), that the public would have demanded to know why? In addition, just like racist Australian folk need reminding that a scary and powerful minority of Islam are terrorists, a scary minority of Australians are racist violent fucks.

In answer to your question; No.

The Abbott government has no problem with withholding information from the Australian public; they have always cited “national security” as the reason why no one is allowed to release any information about boats seeking asylum in Australia, or what is done to them when the Navy turns them back.

They have no obligation to tell us the reasons for anything, and they frequently hide information from the Australian public when it is deemed dangerous or would incite panic.

just like racist Australian folk need reminding that a scary and powerful minority of Islam are terrorists, a scary minority of Australians are racist violent fucks.

But this is where we get to the real meat of your ask. 
I really like how you’ve worded this, like it’s a solid fact.
Except you’re full of shit. You don’t know the first thing about Islam, or anything else you’re talking about.  

So first off; Islam is the religion, the people following the religion are Muslim.
The terrorists everyone is freaking out about are proportionate to the amount of Christians who are in the KKK.
They’re not a “powerful” minority and any ‘knowledge’ about them spread by the media is a) incorrect and b) completely irrelevant to the Australian people.


If knowledge of terrorists and terrorist acts was vital to the public, we would have the same level of coverage of the acts of terror and violence done to the Muslim population, or racist groups like the ADL being named as terrorist organisations because they meet the definition.

(I also like how the ‘minority of Australians’ are racist violent fucks, but the minority of Muslims involved in terrorism are also ‘powerful’.)

You don’t think the violent racists in Australia are powerful? They’re certainly not a minority I can tell you. They’re our cops, our politicians, our councilors, our armed forces.
They’re powerful, they’re the ones writing the laws. They’re our goddamned Prime Minister for fucks sake.

The only thing the Australian public needs reminding of is how to behave in a reasonable and human manner. Nothing else.
