Oh, hello. Here's a bit about me. I'm 22 yrs old. Senior in college. My best friends and boyfriend are my family. I have a zoo of pets. I'm a bookworm and have been a vegetarian for most of my life. Basically, I'm just a small town girl from Ohio who dreams of a lot more. Contact me through ask if you'd like to talk :)
hey y’all, please consider participating anonymously or otherwise. there are so many complex reasons victims/survivors do not report, and i want to help create space for us to feel empowered in sharing them.
you can submit anonymously here (anon asks are on) or using your twitter handle through the hashtag <3
i won’t be posting anything submitted via tumblr in the hashtag until monday 4/14 at 7pm, but you’re welcome to begin submitting now. i’ve already seen a few that are breaking my heart. you are all powerful beyond measure.
another quick clarification: tumblr’s submit option for non-users asks for a name and email address but you can give fakes for both of those—and either way i would never share them.
this is a great idea Hannah. also, for ppl like me who have twitter but dont really use it unless i know something is happening, this is nice to be prepared w/ lol
This is a great idea. There needs to be more conversation about why; even the most earnest of allies who are not survivors cannot comprehend why “more reporting” is not something that will “fix” anything.
just a reminder that this will be happening tonight at 7pm ET/4 pm PT. i haven’t posted anything in the hashtag yet and there are a LOT of submissions, but i’ll do my best to post everything! plz continue submitting if you want to share your story or tweet it later.
why come no one #onhere talks about Cassandra from Wayne’s World and how unbelievably excellent she was?
seriously, i thought i’d have seen her float across my dash by now. a woman of color fronting a rock/metal band in an 80s cult classic? who didn’t just sing but also played an instrument, BASS at that? who was totally confident and kick ass and took shit from no one and was all about her music?
i mean. *I’M* still in love.
everyone ever stays sleeping on Tia Carrere, tbh. (This is also the woman who played Nani in Lilo & Stitch)

“There is a fundamental reason why we look at the sky with wonder and longing—for the same reason that we stand, hour after hour, gazing at the distant swell of the open ocean. There is something like an ancient wisdom, encoded and tucked away in our DNA, that knows its point of origin as surely as a salmon knows its creek. Intellectually, we may not want to return there, but the genes know, and long for their origins—their home in the salty depths. But if the seas are our immediate source, the penultimate source is certainly the heavens… The spectacular truth is—and this is something that your DNA has known all along—the very atoms of your body—the iron, calcium, phosphorus, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and on and on—were initially forged in long-dead stars. This is why, when you stand outside under a moonless, country sky, you feel some ineffable tugging at your innards. We are star stuff. Keep looking up.”
