last episode of season 9 of criminal minds then I’m all caught up.
What if verbal abuse left the same scars as physical abuse? Would it be taken more seriously? That’s what photographer Richard Johnson hopes to accomplish with his new photo project, “Weapons of Choice.”
The series uses a makeup artist to put bruises and scars on photo subjects. Embedded in these violent marks are some hateful words typically associated with abuse, such as “Stupid,” “Dumb,” “Trash” and others that are much, much worse.

Who does our “representative democracy” truly represent?
I wonder how quickly our government would change if Congress was paid minimum wage.
and not just the minimum wage of the state they are in office for but federal minimum wage.
Asexuality is not fake.
Asexuals are oppressed.
Asexuality is real.
How can you say that sex can exist without love and not that love can exist without sex?
Asexuality is as real and as repressed as all the other member of the LGBT community. “How can you be repressed for not liking sex?” Oh well maybe we’re only 1% of the population and maybe most people refuse to believe that they exist and maybe people who are asexual are at higher risk of being raped because stupid jerks thing that we “need to be fixed.”
SHUT UP! We need awareness just as much as gay, bi, lesbian, pan, demi, aro, trans, queer, and everyone else who is denied their right to exist.
We are not celibate. This is not a choice. We do not want sex. Some (not all) may even prefer death over sex! “Oh, well how do you know you don’t like it if you’ve never tried?” HAVE YOU EVER STUCK YOUR HAND IN BOILING WATER? NO? THEN HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU DON’T LIKE IT?
And relationships involving one or more asexual person can be successful! The asexual person can let themselves have sex to please their partner, or (for some reason people tend to ignore this option!) the sexual person can choose to give up sex because they are so romantically in love with their partner.
Asexuals need to be recognized or else we’re just gonna feel broken and we shouldn’t have to because
Omg look it’s two female characters with a purpose and emotions and BONUS they also mirror the lead two boys perfectly… I know what we should do. Let’s kill ‘em.
It’s important to note one thing about Jo and Ellen’s deaths.
Season five was intended by Kripke and all parties as the FINAL SEASON.
He was killing off everyone around Sam and Dean because the show was coming to an end.
also can we talk about the fact that one of the biggest contribution to the writing of their deaths was the adamant hatefulness from so many female fans? Can we please talk a little bit about internalized misogyny and how it has an affect on female representation in media? Cuz I’m pretty sick and tired of seeing male villains like Crowley being utterly adored by female fans but villains like Bela, Meg, and Naomi being completely and utterly hated to the point of fans DEMANDING writers kill them off. Jo and Ellen were hated on so so so much. It was ridiculous. And quite sad too, seeing as Jo was literally written as the female version of Dean.
the episode where demon!Dean has a fling with a waitress hasn’t even aired yet and I’ve seen countless posts calling the waitress a bitch or saying “by fling they better mean he flings her out a window”. The fandom knows nothing about this character and already people are spreading hate and wanting her to be killed
If we want females on this show the first thing we need to do is stop wishing them dead
