Anyway you dice it, nothing is going to change the fact that children need both a mother and a father.
Ah, homophobia, transphobia, and good old cis straight prejudice. (Oh, also a prejudice against single parent homes! Yay! So many problems!)
Did you know that there’s actually been STUDIES about the sorts of environments that children do well in? And you know what they found? The gender of the parents has no impact on the well being of a child.
Like, cornbreaded christ, stop trying to use “but the children!” as an excuse for bigotry.
Each year on her birthday, the King and Queen released thousands of lanterns into the sky in hope that one day - their lost Princess would return.

when the person u hate does something that makes everyone else hate them:
there is not a better feeling than someone playing with your hair
Or running their fingers down your back.
Unless you thought you were alone.
And now, the weather.
brushing your teeth at night is a difficult thing to do because its like a semipermanent decision once you brush your teeth thats it you cant eat for the rest of the night and i just never know if im willing to make that commitment
Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.
But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)
At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.
Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
Amen to that, Hugh.
