Hi, there. I’m wearing a shirt that reads “Kill Me”. If you saw me at a party or on the street would you promptly murder me? What about if I had a few drinks? What if I was walking alone at night?I’m guessing that you wouldn’t if you’re a sane individual. The cops wouldn’t overlook your crime because of what I’m wearing because that’s silly. I wasn’t literally asking for you to kill me based on my choice of clothing. Who would take that defense seriously?
My friends wouldn’t blame me for being murdered and my killer would be behind bars almost instantly. So, why is it okay to rape someone because they’re wearing revealing clothes? Why does THEIR choice of clothing excuse THEIR attacker? It doesn’t. You’re silly if you think otherwise. The less guilt on the attacker. The more guilt on victim. Stop. Victim. Blaming.

Next month on the 18th I will be officially divorced. I’m so happy to be able to finally cut all legal ties with my worst nightmare. Of course it won’t be over, not for 14 years since we have a child together, and even after she’s 18 there will still be her connecting us to that extent. But I am out and I am trying to rebuild the life that was taken from me. I never imagined that before I’m 30 I would be married and divorced. I never thought that I would lose my child, my job, my school, my possessions, my everything, just to get away from someone that I once loved. It’s hard to know that our entire relationship was built on lies and the second I wanted out he was hellbent on taking away everything I cared about, simply because I no longer cared for him. It’s hard to see the pain my daughter will endure at the hands of someone who is completely heartless. It’s hard to start over from nothing. It’s hard to believe that I could ever love someone again. Hard to trust that it won’t happen next time. But there is no use lurking in the past and denying myself a future. What he did to me is on him. He is the one who is mentally unstable. It’s up to me to create my future, seek therapy for victims of domestic violence, be careful that I never repeat my past, because I can’t go through that again. I want to have a life filled with love, not anger, not regret. What’s done is done and the only thing to do now is get the fuck up and keep going. Years from now I can look back and see how strong I was to leave despite all the obstacles in the way. I can see that I never did anything to hurt him for my own selfish reasons. I only wanted to be free from his prison. And that’s not asking too much.

Friendly reminder that the doves in the Efteling (Netherlands) are either gray, white, pink blue or green.

They are tame birds and painted with animal friendly dye. They are painted 4 times per year. They used to bathe them in the paint, which didn’t actually harm the animals but made them drowsy for a few days, but later animal welfare decided they could only be painted with brushes. The German factory that sold the paint went bankrupt and the Efteling bought all of their remaining paint. 

The painted doves are less likely to be attacked by birds of prey, so this method is also used by pigeon fanciers. It’s animal friendly and looks very cute so I thought I would share.
