“The basis of most arguments against trans people is that we are not who we say we are, that we are always and only the gender that we were assigned at birth. And so much of that is about having a sense of certainty around gender, that when you were born with a certain set of genitalia, then that must dictate your entire life, and the reality is that that’s not true. A lot of people are not comfortable with that, because then that means they have to begin to question who they are.”- Laverne Cox
Supernatural fans, ever wonder why the boys are named Winchester? Not only is it a brand of gun but there’s a famous ghost story that goes with it
Sarah Winchester, wife of the gun-maker William Winchester, visited a medium after her husband died of tuberculosis. She was told that the family was cursed and being haunted by people who had been killed with Winchester rifles. The psychic said the ghosts could be appeased if she built a house for them. “Never stop building,” she was told “or you’ll die”
For the next 38 years she had construction going on the home 24 hours a day
Each night she held a seance to ask the ghosts what to build next. Because she let the dead design much of the house the layout doesn’t always make sense
There are staircases that lead to ceilings
doors that open onto walls
and one that leads to a two story drop off
Sarah Winchester slept in a different room every night hoping the ghosts wouldn’t be able to find her. In 1922 she died in her sleep

I mean, I’m not saying that we can enforce this as law or anything. I also might be wrong about this. But:
Just as a general rule, I feel like we should not look at pictures of the breasts or genitalia of people who would rather we not look at pictures of their breasts…
Parks and Rec GIFs that describe me. I made none of these.
Why did Stan Lee make a cameo in The Princess Diaries 2? Was this foreshadowing Disney buying Marvel? Is Princess Mia going to be an Avenger? So many questions
In case you though I was joking
WHY DOES THIS PICTURE EXIST?

Hi. I’m Rae. Blogger, fanfic writer, teacher, etc. I wrote that fic with the ugly sweaters and blog about Haiti a lot. Nice to meet you.
So. I’m gonna need your help with something huge.
The short story is this: The nonprofit children’s foundation I work with in Jacmel, Haiti desperately needs help on the ground. They do amazing, life-changing work, but their itty bitty budget doesn’t have much by way of hiring new people. For all the great work the ACFFC does, they’re a pretty understaffed and the situation can’t continue the way that it is. The longer story is here.
The ACFFC needs someone who can do 6 months or more of free work, helping them develop their curriculum, and just, y’know, giving the kids some extra love and attention. I am ready and willing to pack my bags for Jacmel, but even with my savings, I’m not gonna be able to afford it alone.
This raffle is how you can help. Donate, and get a shot at free Misha stuff! There are a sparse handful of people in the world who own this vintage H2H merch. I probably don’t need to mention how much Misha’s autograph goes for. It’s kind of a sweet deal. And as a side note, I bet Misha would be pretty proud of you.
How it works:
- Donate $10 here to help me reach my crazy impossible goal.
- Fill out this raffle form. Super important, or you won’t get entered!
- Boom, you’re done. Every $10 you donate is another entry into the raffle, and a tiny step closer to getting this teacher back to Haiti.
- Get an extra raffle entry by reblogging and spreading the word ~
- Get potentially many extra raffle entries by convincing your friends and family to help with the cause
I’ll pick a winner once I’ve made it to halfway to my goal. If January comes and that hasn’t happened, I will pick a winner anyway. If a freak accident should occur and I can’t move to Haiti when all is said and done, 100% of the earnings of this fundraiser will be donated to the ACFFC.
Please ask me questions! If I don’t know the answers, I will find them for you. You can contact me on tumblr or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s be the change, Tumblr. Let’s make this happen.
c’mon guys do the thing 1) i need ur help 2) u can’t get this shit anywhere 3) misha would want you to
