On Aug. 17, Winnipeg police pulled the body of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine out of the Red River near Alexander Docks.
The scope of the tragedy prompted Holly Jarret of Hamilton, Ont. — cousin to Loretta Saunders, an indigenous woman who was murdered in February at age 26 — to launch the #AmINext hashtag earlier this month.
So Obama can write a handwritten letter to Joan Rivers’ daughter saying how her mother made him and Michelle laugh (I wonder if this was before or after Joan referred to Michelle as the t-slur) but Obama had no time to call off Ferguson police gassing and shooting rubber/wooden bullets at peaceful protestors?
Pakistani teenager Aitzaz Hasan died Monday after tackling a suicide bomber trying to enter his school. By sacrificing himself, he saved the lives of the 2,000 students studying inside. Hasan’s father says, ”My son made his mother cry, but saved hundreds of mothers from crying for their children.”
This is bravery. This is selflessness. This is true courage.
Here is a beautiful picture of his grave decorated with many flowers. May Allah rest his soul in peace…
rest in power my friend
So this is a tmi and about sex and negative experiences do dont read that if you don’t want to hear about it.
But I had this ex boyfriend connor and he was really big and one time when we were having sex the condom we used was too small for him and he was fucking me to hard and it broke and we were both scared I would get pregnant so I took the morning after pill and I didn’t get pregnant and I was only like 15 and I was reading my journal where I had written about it a few months ago and he was an asshole and I wrote hire much having sex with him hurt and he would go to hard and break the condom but even though he hurt me he couldn’t break me like a condom because I was too strong for that and now like two years later I almost completely forgot about him and when he first left me I was so upset I didn’t think I would ever feel better and I ended up being hospitalized a few months after that partly because of the drugs and how badly I was functioning and I think the way he treated me contributed to that but now if I see him around I don’t even really remember him and I can’t picture being with him at all and I feel so proud of myself because it might have taken a while but now I am completely unaffected from him and this all happened at such a vulnerable time in my life but I’m strong and I was a lot stronger then I thought I was and im okay now

- “Gandhi boasted of the incident in his writings, pushing the message to all Indians that women should carry responsibility for sexual attacks upon them.”
- “Gandhi believed Indian women who were raped lost their value as human beings.”
- “He argued that fathers could be justified in killing daughters who had been sexually assaulted for the sake of family and community honour. “
- Incest. “He took to sleeping with naked young women, including his own great-niece, in order to “test” his commitment to celibacy.”

A mother’s worst nightmare.
She was preaching
