And there is another American profession that has a significantly more alarming problem with domestic abuse. I’d urge everyone who believes in zero tolerance for NFL employees caught beating their wives or girlfriends to direct as much attention—or ideally, even more attention—at police officers who assault their partners. Several studies have found that the romantic partners of police officers suffer domestic abuse at rates significantly higher than the general population. And while all partner abuse is unacceptable, it is especially problematic when domestic abusers are literally the people that battered and abused women are supposed to call for help.

NRA Values are a health risk to America’s youth.

In the following decade violent crime in the UK would skyrocket 77% leaving citizens of the UK with no way to defend themselves in what would become known as “The Violent Crime Capital of Europe.” The UK would gain a rate of violent crime several times higher than that of the US and would continue to fall apart as lawmakers scrambled to ban more and more items.
Revisionism and lack of context are a health risk to the youth of not just America but every state that would steal the rights of its citizens overnight.

You want to get kids out of foster care and into good, loving homes? I’ve got a simple solution to your problem.

Did you know LGBT couples are more likely to adopt older, children of color and disable children than straight couples? LGBT couples tend to adopt ‘undesired’ children more (basically kids no one else wants.)

Way too powerful an image here…
This speaks volume about the standards expected in society on how one should look. And how young we begin to be bombarded with these standards…

I can’t remember the amount of times of cried while grabbing at my fat and wishing I could cut it off. It started when I was eight. This picture and the meaning behind it is so, so important.

In what could be the largest climate change protest in history, Madonna Thunder Hawk, board member of the Lakota People’s Law Project, will be leading the People’s Climate March in New York City. There will be similar protests and marches taking place all over the world to engage in the issue of climate change and its implications. As stewards of this planet and its inhabitants, indigenous people will be leading the New York march demanding that leaders take notice of the problems that are occurring in conjunction with climate change, and that we must think of future generations in our present actions. These protests will precede the United Nations Summit that will take place this coming Tuesday the 23rd where 125 countries are expected to convene to announce non-binding initiatives to reduce carbon emissions that fuel global warming. Many believe that this UN Summit will not take the strident course necessary to affect real change in these issues; leaving all of our futures on a tenuous platform.
