Love Moko. Her song Your Love is addicting, and her style is so pretty. Just felt like she’d make a great Sailor Moon. Also was inspired by Asieybarbie’s sailor moon redraws as well when doing this.

I’m gonna cry because I love Moko too and I love Sailor Moon and this is absolute perfection and everyone should just SEE THIS THEN LIKE IT IMMEDIATELY OK.

It’s #FossilFriday, and weighing around 1,500 pounds, rivaling a large moose in size, is Megaloceros giganteus, one of the largest known deer. 
Megaloceros’s enormous antlers, some of which reached a 13-foot spread, were used in ritualized combat between males. Adapted to live on grassy terrain, this elk became extinct some 10,000 years ago.

Baby playing with the bottle sprinkler. It’s been very popular with the neighborhood children and fascinated gardeners.

Chalk messages on the sidewalk

From the protest at Bayview Thriftway earlier today. They are protesting this location because an employee harassed a nursing mother to the point  where she deiced to leave the store.  Other mothers nursed today without incident.

hcconn asked: Part 1: I just read your posted ask about "do you wish your parents hadnt adopted you?" One of the reasons someone might want to know so desperately is if they were considering adoption or had adopted.

peaceshannon:

Part 2: I would be devestated if the child we adopted did not love us or consider us their real parents. So, do you see why you may get questions like this? It is a very scary thing, to put so much love into a child and have them resent you for it.
ooooh, ok. thanks for pointing that out to me (yes, i’m sorry i am being just a little sarcastic because yea, i knoooow the reasons why potential adoptive parents and adoptive parents would ask me that, frankly its not that difficult to figure out). 
but let me ask you a question. is that not the case with any child? do parents not put so much love into their biological children too? is not possible with ANY child that they also not love you or consider you their parents anymore or resent you? the answer is yes because i have seen that with plenty of children raised by their biological parents too. but do people go around asking biological children if they wished their parents hadn’t birthed them? even when those children say nothing bad about their parents at all (make note, i don’t speak poorly of my adoptive parents). hmmmmm, i wonder why not? i wonder what the difference would be between adopted people and non-adopted people that i would get asked that question in different forms many, many times (hint: i don’t always post those asks bc frankly they’re getting redundant).
ok, maybe it’s because i’m active in trying to fight for the right of poor, unmarried, brown women to raise their children (well then, perhaps i should start asking pro-choice activists if they wish their moms hadn’t birthed them???) maybe that’s why people ask consistently about if i wish i wasn’t adopted and how my parents feel about my activism. whether you want to admit it or not, this is tied into the assumption that adoptees should be grateful to our parents and it is “devastating” for adoptive parents (who have only had good intentions and loved their children) if those adoptees grow up to be critical of the systems of oppressions that put us in those families (want to talk about devastating, imagine giving birth to a child and being forced to give it away because the rest of the world tells you it is selfish for you to raise it).
the world is a complicated place. i can love my adoptive parents and still hate the corrupt system that took me from my birth mom without her permission and made them my parents.

5-year-old with cancer just wants birthday cards

This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

Warren 2016

There is no way you had every loan grant and scholarship and it still “didnt work”.

Im in debt, but edumacating myself

Feed In Breastfeeding Support Gathering at Bayview Thriftway in Olympia WA

pacificnorthwestdoodles:

I’ll be attending and documenting a Feed-in at the Bayview Thriftway in Olympia, WA.

One of my neighbors was told to leave when she was breastfeeding her baby. In Washington State, breastfeeding mothers have the right to breastfeed in public. The owners/employees at business must not be aware of…

I am late. I’m heading over there to take some photos. I’m a fan of protests in my town. Any photos posted on here will be done so by participant permission.

Coach Natalie Nakase has played professionally in the U.S. and has already been a head coach in Japan’s national pro league. Now, she’s the second ever woman to join an NBA coaching staff. 
She’s been proving her hustle for the Clippers, and makes no bones about her goal: to be the head coach of an NBA team. - CM
