Pretty sure I already reblogged this but what the hell.  Love this campaign.  

campaign bringing awareness to homeless youth

I adore this campaign so much.

Okay just going to inform people about being young and homeless for a second

In most states, it is a status offense to run away from home, and in most states your parents can drag you home kicking and screaming.

46% leave because of physical abuse.

17% leave because of sexual abuse.

50% of homeless youth were kicked out, or their parent/guardian didn’t care/try to stop them when they left.

40% of the homeless in America are under 18.

Okay, so obviously in trying to fix homelessness, fixing youth homelessness is very important. But our society is completely restricting of youth being independent. A youth who is unhappy at home has very few options.

A youth is restricted from getting jobs without parental permission (and of course few homeless teens can get that). Without the option of getting a legal job, youth are forced into prostitution (survival sex), drug selling, and theft.

A yout cannot rent an apartment without parental permission.

Most hotels and motels will not let somebody under 18 book a room.

A youth cannot even get medical help without parental permission (even if they could afford it).

To house a homeless youth for more than 24 hours is a felony.

To aid a homeless youth in finding housing (besides a homeless shelter or their parent’s/guardian’s residence) is illegal.

Even shelters place 48 hour restrictions on youth without parental permission.

40% of homeless youth are LGBTQ.

Our misguided belief that these restrictions help youth- that these kids will go home and all will be well- is naive and harmful. It is ridiculous that we place parental rights and our notion that kids shouldn’t leave their parents above youth safety.

midgardian etiquette 101: when going to their homes, hang your coat first or in some cases, your mjolnir.

naw maybe it’s actually asgardian custom to check your weapons at the door

It was medieval custom to check your weapons at the door of the meadhall before greeting the king of the place you were going to. It was courteous and showed respect. You can see it in Beowulf. 

what i don’t understand is how that hook can hold the mjolnir.

the hook is worthy

the hook is worthy

Peter Pan would disagree.

I’ve not read the comics but I always figured Mjolnir wasn’t heavy so much as stubborn, and if it decided it didn’t wanna move it just wouldn’t. It sits on Loki, rather than crushing him in Thor 1, and in Avengers it rests on the floor of the ship, and trying to pick it up Hulk starts breaking the floor with his weight, but Mjolnir doesn’t seem to weight anything at all (If it was as heavy as Hulk implied, it would drag the whole ship to the ground right?). Mjolnir isn’t heavy, cos its not going down, instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it. Hence, the hook doesn’t hold it, it merely remains in place.

so what you’re trying to say is that Mjolnir is like a chicken head

 instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it. 

OK SO WHAT YOU ARE SAYING
IS THAT WHEN THIS HAMMER WAS FORGED IN THE HEART OF A STAR IT BECAME A FIXED QUANTUM POINT
AND THE UNIVERSE MOVES AROUND IT—AND THOR IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE PROPER RESONANCE TO INTERACT WITH IT ON A QUANTUM LEVEL
AND SO HE IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE LEVERAGE REQUIRED TO SHIFT THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE AROUND THE FIXED POINT THAT IS MJOLNIR

THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE

DUDE YOU GUYS SCIENCED THORS HAMMER THAT IS AWESOME

i just… can’t have this not on my blog.

What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

aconissa:

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
