oftentimes women might smile at cat-callers out of nervousness or pure fear because they know that if they react negatively that guy could get way scarier and even violent
it’s not a “wow i’m so flattered” smile it’s literally a “please don’t follow me home and murder me after this” smile
"Listen to them! CHEEL-dren of the night! What music they make!"
"ONE child of the night! TWO children of the night! THREE! Three beautiful children of the night! Ah ah ah!"
I’ve received quite a few asks regarding flashbacks recently. Most of my advice is the same as for dissociation because a lot of it relates back to grounding. Skills are transferable like that.

social justice stuff you see on tumblr is nothing new; these ideas and terminology have been around in activist circles for years. You’re only just finding out about them now because they’ve been brought into the mainstream of a website most of you frequent.
Sexual harassment or assault against boys/men is not OK. It is not funny. It is not unimportant. It is hurtful.
I wish people would stop reversing genders and suddenly sexual harrassment/assault is empowering, because it is committed by a girl/woman against a boy/man. No it’s still not OK, not ever. It’s not cute, funny or empowering. It hurts.
(And yes I know sexual assault happens in other gender constellations as well and that girls/women are far more likely to be affected than boys/men and that boys/men are far more likely to be the perpetrators than girls/women)

Zwischen Meppen und Lingen explodiert eine Ölförderanlage, vier Menschen kommen ins Krankenhaus. Umweltschäden seien nicht zu befürchten, so die Behörden.
[…] In den 1980er- und 90er-Jahren stillgelegte Anlagen seien auch im Emsland wieder in Betrieb genommen worden. Dabei platze auch mal eine marode Pipeline, so Fuest: „Das passiert immer wieder.“ Am Standort Bramberge habe man insgesamt wenig Probleme. Dennoch: „Ein Restrisiko bei der Erdölförderung bleibt eben“, sagt der Grüne.
