What Would You Do?: A transgender woman is insulted by a man at a diner. This is a really great segment they did where a trans woman, played by a real trans woman, is insulted and ridiculed by a man (played by an actor, of course) while she serves him at a diner. You’d be surprised at how many people butted in to defend her.
So much faith in humanity restored.
Fucking great how they supported her.
I may need to watch this show more often.
I am literally crying this is making me so happy that there are people who will protect a perfect stranger especially religious people. I’m so used to hearing about people killing, hurting, misgendering people like me that I forget people like this exist.
THIS IS CARMEN CARRERA SHE WAS ON RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE SHE’S A FIERCE BITCH.
this show is my favourite show. what an episode. wow. ALSO THAT GUY. GO MIKE. GOD BLESS YOU. I LOVE YOU.and that other guy. i swear this show is the absolute best. it makes me cry so much because people restore my faith in the human race.
Remember how I said this show was everything?
This is so powerful.
Carmen! <3 <3
holy shit this deserves way more fucking notes
i can’t reblog it enough, please get this through your skulls. i can’t walk home at night past 10 pm without being terrified that every guy that hollers at me is going to follow me home. it’s fucked up. it’s unfair. our culture sucks. we need to fix it. rape is never okay. never. if the rapist is the girl’s boyfriend it still counts. rape is rape. no is no. no answer is no. you shouldn’t beg and plead until someone’s uncomfortable. take the hint. end this bullshit.
ALL RIGHT, I’m tired of trying to sell this.

Apologies for the terrible image quality - I’m lacking scanner access at the minute so I had to take these photos on my phone
I was reading hyperbole and a half’s blog entry explaining their experience of depression and decided to make another sketchy comic based on my experiences with anxiety, which is another mental illness I think people tend to misunderstand quite frequently
Hopefully this will be of use to some people - whether they suffer from anxiety themselves or if they just want to know more about it
I have different anxiety attacks and I am extremely grateful for my boyfriend every time. Because he knows what to do. Some times I need someone to hold me, others I just need air and space; so he opens the window and give me a tall glass of water, and stay outside keeping track that I am breathing.
He only ask what I need during an anxiety attack, only when I’m back to “normal” does he ask me what happen that triggered an attacks and makes sure I am okay, that I am loved and not alone.
Same. My bf will come in and find me lying on the office floor, and instead of giving me a guilt trip or telling me “get over it” or that I’m making Him depressed, he just rubs my back and holds me.
Makes a world of differnce
Not everyone has a special person to help them through the attacks, but that doesn’t mean they’ll never find someone who can. To those who don’t have anyone to talk to/help them, hang in there! It’s not an easy thing, but you can do it!
