Predator PSA!
Please be wary of this man if you happen to run into him in the southeast Tennessee area or at any cons in the general vicinity of Tennessee and Georgia! 
His name is Kedar Thor Brewer; he goes by his middle name in person and online by the handles Tash Alistair and vinylscratchwubzu. Here is the source of the mugshot.
He was charged in 2012 for having committing three counts of statutory rape with a fifteen year old girl (he was twenty three at the time), and though he got off with a probation sentence, this was not the first time he’d had sex with a minor and he has a history of preying on underage girls. Up until that arrest, he’d gotten away with it.He’s also an emotional and physical abuser, and though never diagnosed he shows signs of being a sociopath and a user who will come across as the most charming and personable individual upon first meeting him. He has never lived anywhere for longer than maybe two years, and depends upon the kindness of others to support him (in the rape case, the victim’s mother had actually taken him in to her home). He also has hardly any long lasting relationships with people past that same timeframe, as once they become aware of his true nature they stop associating with him.
Having supported him for nearly three years, I’ve witnessed all of this first hand and it’s taken me this long to find my voice and finally make this post. There have been at least three other victims I personally know of, and I would like to avoid there being anymore, ever!
He is a Brony, and aside from the Pony community, his other interests include Touhou, Phantasy Star, JRPGs, Gaia, and some anime.He sometimes tries to cosplay, as seen here..He would be violating his probation just by being in the state of GA—if you see him there, immediately contact police!
The charges were incurred in Clarksville, Tennessee. Though the judge did give him a diversion and a probation sentence, until that probation is completed in May of 2015, the felony is still on his record. Despite being ordered to, he has not registered as an offender. 
Please reblog to spread awareness if you or someone you know is in his vicinity of prey! If you see him at a con, immediately contact a staff member as that is a violation of his probation!

I have a question.... How can you get kidney damage from crop

kittengrin:

kyidyl:

kittengrin:

It’s less likely from a crop (I probably should have said flogger, honestly), but any heavy impact in the kidney are can cause damage.  Any time I’ve been taught to use impact toys (crops, floggers, etc) and every time I’ve taught anyone else to use them there’s always been HEAVY emphasis on “DO NOT HIT IN THIS AREA”.

To elaborate on what kittengrin said, your kidneys are kind of a weird case.  They’re located (in case you didn’t know) on either side of your spine around the top of your pelvis (so on your lower back in the middle).  They aren’t comparatively well protected (the bottom bit can be a little protected by your hips, and the top is covered by ribs - but they’re your floating ribs.), being covered by mostly connective tissue.  There isn’t a thick layer of muscle, fat, and bone between them and the outside world like there is on your upper back.  Because really, when you hit someone’s back, what are you hitting? Mostly their spinal cord and lungs, but those are very well protected.  There’s a lot of strong muscle and bone between your hitting implement and those delicate things.  

Now, I don’t know this for certain b/c I haven’t gone to med school yet, but drawing on my knowledge of physics…I’d say that the density of the connective tissue makes it easier to hurt your kidneys with something like a flogger, not harder.  Waves like dense things to travel through, so at a guess I’d say that the concussive compression wave travels through the tissue to the underlying structures (ie, kidneys) easier than it would through, say, bone.  Bone isn’t super dense all the way through, you’ve got spongy bits and marrow in the middle that can help dissipate the force.  

Lastly, the structures and vessels of your kidney are much more delicate that anything else that is in your general back region.  Muscle, fat, skin, and bone are all strong and specifically evolved to be able to handle the force of impact.  Part of their job is protecting the rest of your squishy bits.  Kidneys….eh, not so much.  They can’t take the impact as well, so in combination with their relative exposure, they get injured easily.  

This is a really good elaboration on my brief answer.  Thank you!

From years in martial arts classes with actual contact sparring, getting hit in the kidneys hurts like HELL. Even a relatively very small, not very hard hit in the kidneys, a hit too light to even leave a bruise on the skin, can make a grown-ass man fall to his knees and gasp in pain. I have seen men three times my size (okay, I’m short, but still) tear up from a passing hit in the kidney. You damn well feel it. Except that it isn’t the type of thing that makes everyone immediately recognize that something wrong happened; it’s the kind of pain that is sharp and terrible, leaving you speechless for a minute. And a minute is MORE than enough to be struck repeatedly with any instrument, or even with a bare hand, which can mean kidney damage or even kidney failure. Unlike livers, kidneys don’t always really bounce back from that damage. 

So… yeah. Hitting the kidneys is bad, mmmkay?

important psa about buns

We raised rabbits when I was a child and my sister gave a rabbit a bath (she was 5) and it died..so heed this instruction.

I wasn’t going to reblog this, but then I realized I might save a rabbit.

This is important guys. If your rabbit gets into something gnarly and you HAVE to bathe them:
1. Fill a bowl with warm water.
2. Get a washcloth. Put it in the water. Squeeze it out until it is just damn. 
3. Lightly scrub the dirty area on your bun.
4. That is it. DO NOT get your bun wet. Only slightly damp on the part that was dirty. 
(source)

VERY IMPORTANT! SAVE A BUNS LIFE!

Do not bathe your bun!!!!

Omg i don’t even have bunnies but i think this is really important

Need to save the bun buns

Aiya Van Kooten everyone

When Aiya Van Kooten stood face-to-face with a burglar in her bedroom, her left eye twitched, then she went into “predator mode”.

“I screamed at him… jumped off my chair, leaped over my bed and sprinted after him down the stairs,” she said.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/8626910/Predator-mode-scares-off-burglars

This is the best story of my life

Although she was the only one home, Van Kooten said she had no regard for her safety - instead, she said she was just overwhelmed with “rage“….. ummmmm Hero!!! 

Haha, badass Muslim woman. Love it!!!

This lady is so awesome. She lives with her grandma and was studying and had a towel on her head and no shoes but she chased them out of her garden, kicked one up the arse as he climbed a fence, they dropped a camera and laptop, she flagged down a passing driver to help her continue the pursuit, and it turned out he was ex-military, and they finally caught one of them in a park and pinned him as the police arrived. Now she’s going to visit the burglar in prison for the next few months to help with his rehabilitation.

So in summary:

This lady doesn’t just defend her home and loved ones, she will hunt you down, team up with other skilled individuals, get you put away, and then teach you the consequences of your actions until you’re a valuable member of society once more.

Seriously she’s a frigging superhero.

OMG YOU GUISE WE FOUND QAHERA

Like all mythology, that of the criminally bad Black mother spread through storytelling—lurid tales told with bitter resentment. Haven’t you heard the one about the jaywalking mother whose son was hit by a drunk driver? Surely you know all about the homeless mother who left her two children in the car during a job interview. And now there’s the McDonald’s mother who abandoned her daughter at the playground.

But what do these stories leave out? Our welfare system is designed to put everyone to work regardless of circumstance. Unfortunately, the low-wage jobs attainable for most mothers lead to a parental quagmire. Between low paychecks and inflexible work schedules, how is one to arrange for adequate child care? With no apparent options, the answer is often that they simply cannot.

Such women, it’s been repeated to you, are bad mothers who deserve to be punished, and increasingly we’re doing just that. Indeed, the mythology of bad Black mothers was never just a part of our cultural folklore—it’s entrenched in our legal system.

Over the last three decades, the population of incarcerated women has grown by over 800%, and women of color have been locked up at disproportionately high rates. African American women are three times more likely than White women to be thrown in jail or prison.

The justice system doles out particularly harsh punishments for infractions that relate to motherhood. Although pregnant Black and White women take drugs at similar rates, expecting Black mothers are 10 times more likely to be reported to child welfare for drug use, according to the Drug Policy Alliance.

Mandatory minimum sentencing has slowly eliminated judicial discretion and exacerbated the racial disparities. In addition, most child maltreatment laws and definitions of neglect are very vague, leaving room for prejudice based on race, class and gender to creep in. One in nine Black children have an incarcerated parent. Who stands to gain from this?

Noah Remnick

Quote is from Debra Harrell and The Mythology of Bad Black Mothers in The Los Angeles Times. Though she is out of jail now, she was subsequently fired from her job and her daughter remains in state custody. @prisonculture shared a link for a fundraiser for her at You Caring.

I am fascinated (as in repulsed) by the people pretending to care about the well-being of her daughter—by ignoring all of the structural inequalities and lack of options for Debra—suggesting that she could’ve been kidnapped playing at the busy child park. If they care then they must care about the structural problems that lead to lack of options. And if they care, then they have a funny way of showing it since when Black girls and even adult Black women go missing, there is less concern, less media coverage and often they are marked off as “runaways.” So now Black girls are capable of being taken? I know Harrell was in a bind that poverty creates and even those all about bootstraps magically have no answer for the fact that McDonald’s fired her because they don’t pay her enough to afford childcare. And she worked

Take a look at Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness, and the Politics of Empowerment by Patricia Hill Collins; she goes further than this article did as to how the mythology of the “inherently” bad Black mother came about and how it unironically co-exists with the “thoughtful mammy” who raises any children (especially White ones) “well,” except her own. Critical read.

THINX Underwear:

OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY

AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:

For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.

AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:

After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.

THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS

Getting lost in Tampa is easier than one would think.

We have three different E Linebaugh Aves. THREE. IN TOTALLY DIFFERENT PARTS OF TOWN. One road will have up to five names. There are places in Carrollwood where you can be at the corner of Bush Blvd, Bush Blvd, and Bush Blvd. Seriously. Fuck Tampa.

Now that’s what I call justice 

That last one sometimes* has a point though- because sometimes those nonwhite kids AREN’T parentless. They were stolen from their parents in their country of origin. Also, there’s a demand for (especially Southeast Asian) babies by white people as accessories, not as children. These people are not adopting in their own communities; they’re “saving” children from their not-at-all-endangered cultures and homelands, while letting kids from their own surroundings rot in state care. They don’t do it because they want to raise a kid. They do it for the prestige, for the ego boost they get when someone comments on how dedicated and loving they must be. It was never about the kid. It was about what they could get because of the kid.

what the fuck…

I’ve had a dude do that before. that shit is terrifying. Dude went across the room like he typically would to get one. Came back and I didn’t know that he didn’t have one until he pulled out.

I FLIPPED. Cried all the way home. Cried for days. Got tested. Bought the morning after pill. Seriously, fuck dudes that do this. There should be laws against it.

There ARE laws against this. It’s called rape by deception or fraudulent rape and basically, it’s anytime the conditions of your consent are compromised. In a situation like this, you consented to protected sex. By having sex in a way you did not consent to, a crime WAS committed and he could be charged if any physical effects like pregnancy or STD occurred. Remember, ANY SEXUAL ACTIVITY YOU DON’T CONSENT TO IS RAPE. 

How can anyone think this is ok, by any stretch of the imagination???

My ex did this and only told me after I dumped him. This is pretty much why men aren’t to be trusted

If a guy does this, it’s rape. Call the cops. Ruin his life since he has no problem risking yours. Make him fucking learn. Rapists belong in jail. Rape by deception is rape, not a funny “meme”. 

Anyone doing this deserves a long jail sentence. After they are set on fire. And stuck in all of their vital organs with icepicks.

I suggest slicing his dick off with a peeler. Piece by piece. Let it heal in between. And occasionally break little bits of his hands, just to mix things up. To make him afraid. To make him fear us the way we fear men.
