Rescuing a terrified abandoned dog - Video - Follow us

My eyes are leaking and I have a lump in my throat. This is so so cute

what really breaks my heart about this video is that abandoned dogs who react so defensively to humans like that usually have some major trust issues due to past trauma—most likely abuse. dogs can usually tell what someone’s intentions are when approaching, and while they may not trust a rescuer and might back away or out of reach, they usually won’t feel the need to lash out. but a dog that’s been abused equates humans with pain and, being in a vulnerable situation on its own, tries to defend itself. this little baby girl probably went through some really tough times before she ended up on her own. but it makes me very happy to see that she’s got a happy ending.

Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan

Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.

You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.

As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.

Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.

My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.

You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.

So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.

oppression is not a competition

thank you so much for this wording
