CURRENTLY COVETING: NYX WICKED LIPPIES
Who else is crying over these new lipsticks by NYX? The Wicked range is made up of 12 witchy, jeweled toned shades - just in time for fall *__*
why does NYX keep doing this to me btw???
IMMORTAL IS THE PERFECT BLUE I’M CRYING
This man, Conor Fowler of Baltimore, MD, is a rapist. He raped me and has raped other women I know. He is violent, manipulative, dangerous, and should not be trusted. He is not under any current legal investigation and is still a threat to women in the Baltimore area.
Stay away from him and advise everyone you know to do the same. I suspect he has attacked many women and will continue to do so any time he feels he can get away with it.
It has taken me nearly six years to build up the courage to share this in such a public way and I am doing so in hopes of reaching out to other women he victimized who have not yet had the support or avenues needed to come forward. I want to do everything in my power to stop him from hurting anyone else, but I can’t do this alone. Please share via any/all social media platforms and feel free to add commentary.
If you know someone Conor assaulted who wants to talk me, give her my contact information or request it through my ask box if you don’t know me in person. You are not alone
First things first, I want to commend the woman speaking out. We read, everyday, about more and more sexual assault survivors outing their abusers and I can only imagine how difficult it is to do so. You have courage that I’ve never known and I hope that you continue to flourish and shine. Clearly, you have a lot of support, keep those people close because misogyny, rape apologists, and victim blamers often lurk around.
Being someone who is very distantly acquainted with this man, I hate to admit that I hesitated when I saw this post because my instinct was ‘how do I know this is true?’ and ‘this guy’s reputation is on the line’ but then I thought about it (asked some questions, got some answers) and realized I was perpetuating everything that I’ve been fighting against and all the things I’m hoping women and men will ‘unteach’ themselves.
I’m confident that many people I know who know him much better than I do and perhaps even consider him a friend will have the same knee-jerk reaction.
And, now, consider: People don’t just makes these accusations up. And people don’t just randomly accuse someone of a heinous crime six years later (or at any time, really). Less than 1% of rape accusations are false and as much as you may know or like this man, it’s highly unlikely that this falls into that category.
It’s easy to share an article about the Steubenville, or TKE, or any other men who’ve been accused of horrific crimes against women when they’re distant and far-removed from you.
It’s easy to advocate for change in those cases. It’s a little more uncomfortable when that person is someone you know, but what you don’t want to do right now is perpetuate exactly what you stood against in all those past articles you’ve shared about rape (the current one’s probably being the Columbia University student speaking up).
So right now may perhaps be a defining moment for many of the people who I know. You’re probably going to learn a lot about yourself in how you react and then choose to proceed here.
Don’t be like all of those people we’ve hated on for supporting rapists and rallying behind them.
Reblogging again for excellent commentary.
…Near the village of Brasschaat, outside Antwerp, Belgium. The last photo shows a grotto-like cave under the mansion that may have been used as a bar in the past.
You know, when I first met you, I got a crush on you just because I thought you were super cute. The more I've gotten to know you (in person and via Tumblr), the more I'm just amazed at how kind, funny, and genuinely awesome you are. Y'know, on top of being super cute. Anyway, I just felt the need to let you know that, and I hope you have a great weekend!
This is the kindest anonymous message I have ever received and it fills my heart with so much joy. So thank you kind anon, for taking the time to write me this. After years of dealing with low self-esteem, I’m always surprised to hear that anyone notices me and thinks of me enough to have a crush on me, let alone think that I’m kind, funny, and genuinely awesome. I wish I knew who sent this so that I could give you a giant hug.
Thank you again you majestic and beautiful person. (And I’m sorry I didn’t respond to this last night, but I wanted to wake up to this message still being in my inbox)
Stargazers could be in for a rare display Sept. 12 as an Earth-directed solar flare ignites the northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, in the United States. As a result of the flare’s direction and strength, the dazzling light display could reach as far south as Maryland in the east and down to Kansas farther west.
*road trips my ass to idaho*
wow I really wish I was in Minneapolis right about now ugh
