Sign this twitition to get ABC Studios and the CBS Network to bridge the gap between the male and female salaries on Criminal Minds. AJ and Kirsten are willing to leave if they don’t get the salary they deserve and Season 9 will most likely still be renewed with only Thomas, Joe and Matthew signed on so far. Negotiations are said to end on Tuesday May 7th, I know that’s soon but voicing our opinion and showing our support still means something! Please sign this! (Also try to trend #equalpayforkirstenandaj on Twitter)
GUYS ONLY 4000 SIGNATURES ARE NEEDED TO SHUT DOWN ANONIB
PLEASE WE CAN DO THIS
this retailer sells a halal nail polish. this allows for oxygen and water to go through the nail, which makes it acceptable to wear during prayer. spread the word.
“Being a relatively modern creation, nail polish remains obviously unaddressed by early Islamic sources. But the general consensus in the Islamic community is that praying with nail polish is impermissible because of the waterproof barrier it creates on nails, which prevents the wudu ritual from being completed five times a day.” (source)
Hello my name is Mahal and I’m a new birth doula based out of South East Michigan. I am a woman of color. My dream is to eventually be a midwife but until then I want to support folks in a very important era of their life: parenthood. I want to support people from pregnancy till the 4th trimester. Which brings me to why I’m asking for help.
I’m in desperate needs of funds to become a post partum doula. Here is the program that I plan on taking my training from: http://center4cby.com/dona-postpartum-doula-training.html
Sadly I’m not old enough to accept the state scholarship for doulas and I’m already obligated for giving free births and just can’t afford to give more free services at the moment.
With post partum doula training I can follow the continuity of care model and also offer more services that will help me support women and in turn support myself. So please help. If you can’t help please direct it to someone who can, or reblog this post. Thanks so much everyone.
Donate here please: http://www.gofundme.com/2pvsb8
If you have any questions please do let me know :) Thanks so much everyone

Warren Andrews had just finished putting up balloons for his stepdaughter’s 18th birthday party at their suburban home in Mayflower, Arkansas, when his wife came inside and said something was wrong. After stepping out of his house, and taking one glance, he immediately dialed 911.
“I don’t know what’s going on, but I’ve got a river of oil coming down the street at me,” Andrews told the operator. Five minutes later, the slick of noxious black crude spewing from a ruptured Exxon Mobil pipeline was eight feet wide, six inches deep and growing fast.
In this photo, spilled oil from Exxon pipeline runs through a neighborhood in Mayflower, Arkansas on March 29, 2013. Reuters was recently given access to the photo from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Exxon is refusing to let reporters anywhere near the accident. They’re also controlling the airspace above the spill. They don’t want you to see what’s happening. TOO BAD, EXXON.

Meet Mac - He needs our help to pay for life-saving heart surgery, and every little bit could help save his life and by extension, lives of trans and LGB people in Uganda. We have less than 24 hours to get to $2k and we’re almost halfway there. Click, donate, reblog. Spread the word
More about Mac:
Mac is a trans activist in Uganda - a country where LGB folks — and those that are gender non conforming — experience immense discrimination and violence. While the Ugandan Parliament has been debating the Anti- Homosexuality Bill (which includes the death penalty in certain cases for homosexuality!), Mac’s served his community for the last five years, advocating for human rights, sexuality rights, and free expression of gender.
He started up a trans support group in Uganda called TRASU, which is open to any trans* or gender non-conforming person in Uganda. He has also been the coordinator at Freedom and Roam Uganda for the past five years and partnered with Sexual Minorities (Uganda), Trans Support Initiative (Uganda), SIPD-UGanda, Gender Dynamix (South Africa), Trans Bantu (Zambia), Rainbow Identity (Botswana), and Trans and Intersex Africa (South Africa).
Mac has a heart for some of the most marginalized individuals in Uganda. He even recently opened up his home to community members who were attacked at their former homes.
Mac needs to travel in India for life saving heart surgery. He has a non-cancerous tumor growing next to his heart, which is winding around the veins of his heart.
Mac’s always poured out his heart for his community. Now, lets come together to mend Mac’s heart so he can keep doing amazing work.
I’m going to keep reblogging this because it’s important.
Please help #findterrilynn #NOLA
!!!!!!!!!!!!!! please please reblog!
Saw her mom on CNN this morning, and it broke my heart. I hope she’s found alive and well.
This is Saleena Jawad. She is 16 years old and has been missing since March 8th at around one PM. She was last seen in Fredericksburg, Virginia, which is about 60 miles south of Washington DC. Please, please, please, if you have any info call 443-854-4743 (her cousin) or 443-854-0675 (her aunt).
Please reblog and spread this info around! Her family and friends are worried.
Did you read that, raging liberals of Pakistan and the West? Malala does not want the attention. She does not want to be a symbol. She does not want to lose her life because your obsession with symbolizing Muslim women into icons of resistance render damage to their very lives. If you genuinely care, try to understand the context and gravity of the situation.
And for God’s sake, stop reblogging that ridiculous comic strip that completely cartoonizes her.
That comic has over 100,000 notes. This has less than 2,000 so far. Malala has been asking people to stop for awhile now. I guess respecting women is a bit too difficult when it’s easier to use them and their experiences to push your own narrative. (via mohandasgandhi)

In Watertown, NY, the city where I was born, the city council recently passed an ordinance banning non-related roommates in their residential area. Why is this important? Well firstly I don’t know if any of you guys have ever tried to rent a house or apartment by yourself. It’s hard to find a job right now and if you do have one you’re looking at needing multiple part-time jobs or a full time and maybe also a part-time to pay the rent and bills yourself.
Secondly what this also means that if you aren’t married you can’t just move in with your significant other. IN THE WHOLE CITY. The case that started this whole thing is a dude living with his fiance and their 2 housemates. One of their neighbors didn’t like the idea of them all living together and went to the city council to change the residential zoning laws as a result. ONE PERSON started this because she didn’t like someone else’s living situation.
This city council is trying to define what is and isn’t a family, and that isn’t cool. I myself live with my girlfriend, another female couple, and a fifth single female housemate. THESE PEOPLE ARE MY FAMILY. Not a single blood relation of mine came to my commitment ceremony to my partner, but one of my current housemates who was primarily an internet friend at the time FLEW ACROSS THE ENTIRE COUNTRY TO BE THERE.
The link above is a petition. Please sign it. This city council needs to wake up and realize they shouldn’t be making this type of decision for 27000 residents, or setting a precedent for other cities and towns to do the same.
This is kind of actually important. I signed it, you should too.
This is just fucking dumb O_o What kind of town is this? Have they never heard of college dormitories where it is MANDATORY to have a roommate (who is almost never related to you)? Like…how is this even an issue at all.
