“I got a fan letter from a young lady. It was a suicide note.

So I called her, and I said, “Hey, this is Jimmy Doohan. Scotty, from Star Trek.” I said, “I’m doing a convention in Indianapolis. I wanna see you there.”

I saw her — boy, I’m telling you, I couldn’t believe what I saw. It was definitely suicide. Somebody had to help her, somehow. And obviously she wasn’t going to the right people.

I said to her, “I’m doing a convention two weeks from now in St. Louis.” And two weeks from then, in somewhere else, you know? She also came to New York - she was able to afford to got to these places. That went on for two or three years, maybe eighteen times. And all I did was talk positive things to her.

And then all of the sudden — nothing. I didn’t hear anything. I had no idea what had happened to her because I never really saved her address.

Eight years later, I get a letter saying, “I do want to thank you so much for what you did for me, because I just got my Master’s degree in electronic engineering.”

That’s…to me, the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.”

Always reblog.

“In 2011, [Texas Republicans] slashed family planning funding and forced many women’s health clinics to either contract their services or shut down altogether. Last year, they successfully defunded Planned Parenthood, a move that forced even more clinics — including dozens that weren’t even affiliated with the national women’s health organization — to close their doors. The result? Texas is now funding 176 fewer health clinics than it did in 2011, and over 50 have been forced to shut down because of it. 200,000 women have already lost access to preventative care like birth control and cancer screenings. The state’s health department has projected that there will be an additional 24,000 unintended births as a result of the cuts because so many women are struggling to access the contraceptive services they need.”

SO pro-life.

24,000 unintended births. Who’s paying for those?

(via bebinn)

The women* forced into them.

Anti-choice is not pro-life. That’s “pro-life” ‘til the birth canal ends.

You can be any character in the world…as long as you’re white.

  • They can never find ethnic actors…until they need maids, slaves, thugs, victims, extras, dropouts, villains. We don’t even get to tell our own cultural stories. 
  • Yet there will never be a black James Bond

Wow, this has a lot of notes!

Overcrowding in California state prisons

There’s a real cost to having an economic incentive to incarcerate people. There is a real, human cost to privatization.

There is a real cost to a widening gap between the rich and the rest, forcing many into poverty, forcing many to become houseless.

There is a real cost when houselessness is criminalized. Where do all the new poor go, one wonders. They go to overcrowded jails & prisons for crimes of poverty or they go to a myriad of slums & houseless communities that are growing and expanding in the United States. It’s rare to find a houseless person without a criminal record - not because they are inherently criminal but because being impoverished is systemically criminalized in this country.

And the criminalization isn’t proportional across communities either. Most of the people being criminalized are black & brown & extremely-poor whites.

Not normally this blog’s topic, but this needs to be spread like crazy. Internet privacy is a big fucking deal, and 83 notes on this as I reblog this is pathetic.

If you dont reblog this, I will judge you so hard

Not an American, but fuck, this shit has got to stop somewhere, right? (Although everyone who approved of the Patriot Act gave tacit permission, as far as I can tell, to be fucked without lube at any time by the US government. None of this is illegal, because US citizens deliberately traded freedom for “safety”, at least IMO.)
