//So, I saw someone out there point out how Child!Blake can be seen wearing a shawl on her left arm:

And how, as a teen, her combat uniform also covers that part of her right arm (it even has a sash to keep that part of the sleeve in place):

The person in…

I do not know him that well, but I am very afraid for Jesus’s life. He went missing last week in San Marcos, and has not been heard from since. To anybody who lives in San Marcos or the surrounding area, please read the following and spread this like wildfire.

Jesus Armando Sanchez is 17 years old. He was last seen on 7-15-2014 at home in San Marcos ,CA, around the intersection of Borden and Cedar. Height: 5” 7’. Weight: 165 lbs. Hair: Black. Eyes: Brown.

Please spread this everywhere and keep your eyes open for him. Jesus is a good kid and needs to be brought home safe. Even if you do nto live in the San Marcos Area, please reblog this in case your followers do live nearby.

Also, please check out the Facebook page for further details. Thank you.

Help save the honey bees! Please reblog and share :)

I’m very skeptical about this. Last I’ve heard, CCD is caused by a combination of factors, and to blindly point a finger at one source without references just ticks my bullshit meter. Anyone got science to back this up?

I checked out this page on the Ontario Beekeeper’s Association website, and found a couple of recent papers on the subject (though, granted, they are against the use of neonicotinoid, so it might be a one-sided story). The general consensus seems to be (bee?) that sublethal doses of neonicotinoids cause changes in behavior and physiology which leads to colony collapse - immune suppression to make them more susceptible to disease, negative change in foraging behavior, abandonment of poisoned hives, etc - so, yes, it seems that it is a combination of factors, which are aggravated by pesticide poisoning.

I’ve seen a bunch of “save the bees” post floating around tumblr, but this is the first one anyone bothered to put sources on.
Thank you. (However I’m not going to look at the sources now, but hopefully I will remember to do so later.)

Not to mention that stopping the use of these pesticides is one of the easiest things we could control— if people were willing. It’s hard to control parasites and internal issues that the bee faces, but it is not hard to stop spraying crops with harmful pesticides.

URGENT: today in Russia, a terrible bill passed in the Russian parliament’s lower house that censors all things considered “gay”. It’s our local partners’ worst nightmare and we need your help. 
This vote comes off the back of two brutal anti-gay murders in Russia, and the trial of a major LGBT rights organisation today.
Tell world leaders to STOP the crackdown, add your name:www.allout.org/russia-attacks

REALLY IMPORTANT

This really is happening, and it’s scary as hell.

“Update June 12: the situation is worsening. Russia has just passed a new anti-gay law makes it illegal even to say the word “gay”.  People in Russia standing up against the crackdown are urging All Out members to keep growing the petition to help draw the attention of world leaders and the media.”

OK JUST A BIG PSA FOR ANYONE LOOKING TO PLAY DRAMATICAL MURDER, OR ANY OTHER NITRO+CHIRAL GAME:

THEY. CONTAIN. RAPE. 

as in, literal, fully-detailed, rape. in both good and bad routes. there is also gore, cannibalism, decapitation, limb and eye removal, beastiality, some really gross meaty stuff, drug use, and a lot of other NASTIES.

PLEASE do not play the games if this content triggers you!!!!

On the left is Richie, my fiancé, about a year and a half into our relationship and pre-t. He had come out as trans to me about a few months prior to that. On the right is Richie 4 years later and almost 3 years on testosterone. We’ve been together almost 5 years now and his birthday is coming up.
I created a secret top surgery fund for him in hopes to surprise him for his birthday on August 30th. I’m not at all expecting $5000 to be raised by then, in fact, I don’t have any kind of expectation towards the amount raised before his birthday. I just wanted to get this started for him as a surprise to remind him that there are so many people that love him and support him and are wishing him a happy birthday and I know any amount donated would be the best birthday surprise he could ever receive.
Right now, Richie doesn’t believe that top surgery will ever be a reality for him and I want to change that incredibly dangerous mind set. A whopping 41% of trans* people commit suicide. Richie’s dysphoria, negativity and hopelessness has been growing at an alarming rate. I want to do everything I can to prevent and/or limit the amount of pain he has to deal with on a daily basis. Top surgery would undoubtably eliminate a big chunk of it.
Richie has been medically transitioning for almost 3 years. He has identified as trans for about 4 years. In that time, he has seen so many of his friends within the community get top surgery and it has been a silent struggle for him. He has become more reclusive, isolated and depressed. I don’t want Richie to ever feel inhibited by his body and/or isolated because of it. This year for his birthday, I want him to truly believe that top surgery is entirely possible for him and unquestionably going to happen in the near future. I can’t do that alone, so I’m reaching out to his family, friends, my followers on tumblr, as well as any kind strangers who may know what it feels like to deal with dysphoria or just want to help out an amazing guy who has done so much for others. I honestly can’t imagine anything better than knowing that we all helped make it possible for him to live happily, authentically and without fear or insecurity of his identity, by contributing to the single most liberating and defining moment in his life. I know top surgery will change his life forever and I know that it is something that will give him back that contagious spark and thirst for life that he used to have and remind him that he once thought the world was beautiful and it still is.
Please spread the word by reblogging and if you’re capable of donating anything, you have no idea how much it is appreciated. No amount is too little so please do not feel embarrassed if you can only donate a dollar or two, I’m still just as humbled by your generosity.
For those of you who have already donated and/or have been reblogging and sharing this with your followers or friends, I am forever indebted to you all.
