this will forever be my favorite tweet of all time
Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured.
If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!
Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there.
Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman?
No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?
(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)
The psyches and souls of women also have their own cycles and seasons of doing and solitude, running and staying, being involved and being removed, questing and resting, creating and incubating, being of the world and returning to the soul-place.

My conclusion on durianrider and freelee is that they are both highly addictive personalities. Enabling eachother to engage in their behaviors masked as ‘health’. Freelee has had extreme disordered eating and as far as I’ve heard, durianrider has been involved in drug addiciton. I feel like it’s really irresponsible to project your insecurities on to the world and use your social platform to feed your ego, which is exactly what it is.
And all these people are commenting on their videos going ‘I have insulin resistance and my doctor said i should stop this’ or ‘this diet is making me gain weight’ and they tell them not to give up and keep eating upwards of 3000 calories a day in….sugar!
Like who are you?! No nutrition, medical or physiological training whatsoever. So fucking irresponsible and dangerous to young girls and boys minds. And don’t even get me started on their fat shaming attitudes, and also the way freelee seems to be seriously dominated by him in most videos with him talking over her etc etc.
Christ almighty how do people buy this
I love Johnny so much. I love us. Day’s like today even more so.
Accidentally got watching freelee the banana girl and durian rider again on youtube. They freak me the hell out
Is it just me or does Durian Rider not really seem like a very nice/sane person?
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.

when one of your best friends is sad but they won’t talk to you about it
girls who were bullied most of their life and gain confidence at one point should be feared most because they dont take anyone’s shit no longer and they will destroy you if you think otherwise
Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
This is so incredibly precious, this actually makes me tear up with happiness!
