This blog was made to help those who are going through a hard time or those who enjoy looking at uplifting pictures/posts. Our ask box is always open if you are seeking advice or an answer to your question(s). We are also open to any suggestions about what you would like to see more out of this blog and what you would like to see less of, etc. This is also a place where you can be yourself and submit pictures, videos, written posts, about related topics of this blog. Hate, violence, and other negative acts towards others are obviously not going to be tolerated. We encourage you to love yourself, others around you, and to be confident with who you are. This blog was also created after what happened to Jamey Rodemeyer. He and Rae - creator of this blog - were friends and after his tragic death, Rae decided that there has to be something done to help those who are going through what he went through and this was his way of reaching out to others by collaborating with a few of his friends that help put this blog together. We will dedicate our time and effort into those who seek out help/advice and try our best to make you feel better. If you find our advice/answer unhelpful, please reach out to someone else that you feel comfortable with or visit the link below labeled "Support" and please call one those numbers to receive the help you are looking for. We value each and every life that is out there.

In memory of Jamey Rodemeyer: 3/21/97 - 9/18/11

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

Sometimes the internet can be a great place. 

How rape trials should go?

Lawyer: Did he rape her?
Witness: Yes, but she was drunk and passed out.
Lawyer: That's not what I asked. Did he rape her?
Witness: Yes, but she was wearin-
Lawyer: I didn't ask what she was wearing. Did he rape her?
Witness: Yes, but-
Lawyer: I didn't ask anything else. It's just a simple yes or no answer. Did he rape her?
Witness: Yes.
Laywer: Yes, he raped her.
Rape is rape is rape, no matter the context.
