Hey there! I'm Elisabeth. I'm a college senior majoring in sign language interpretation, and I love it!
I also love Sherlock, Castle, Doctor Who, Elementary, LOTR, books (lots of books), and other cool stuff like that. Oh, also puns. Lots of puns. I mostly just reblog things I like, so feel free to have a look around.

Things I am passionate about:

Interpreting, American Sign Language, Deafness and the Deaf Community, feminism, dancing, raising awareness about mental illness (especially depression), music (in general), EQUALITY, trying to better myself, changing my pattern of ignorance on different issues, thinking complexly about books/movies/stories, languages, good food (especially gluten free food!), poetry, coffee, being kind to others, staying positive, learning new things, and finding the beautiful in everyday.


I'm always here for anyone who needs to talk or is having a hard time. I know, I've been there, so please message me anytime if you need someone to talk to. Anon is on.

I hope you have a lovely day! :D

P.S. this is my poetry blog:http://swingblueslove.blogspot.com/

 

Your Pain is Your Fault: What Women Are Told by Their Doctors

sick-girl-problems:

cripples-r-us-swag:

“I discovered that I needed to play a weird balance game with my appearance — I enjoy dressing nicely and wearing makeup, but if I went in to a doctor’s office dressed for work, they assumed I wasn’t in pain,” wrote one woman. “If I went in wearing comfortable loungewear and no makeup, they assumed I was depressed. I had to figure out a ‘just right’ solution where I would be treated respectfully and not dismissed.”

YouTubers And Sexual Abuse (via TheThirdPew)

Yo, this kid is only 17 and has more sense than the average victim blaming adult. Why didn’t I know people like him in high school?

"When the bar has been set so low for being a youtuber that I just don’t want them to rape other people, there’s definitely something wrong."

I think my favorite part is, “All right, George Lucas!”

This is a really great video.

Also this:

"Having a second chance at becoming a better person is completely different from deserving your large audience of people you have power over back. These people who have already trusted you before.”

SO MUCH THIS SO MUCH THIS.

Harry Potter and the Times He Was Brilliantly Sarcastic

nevillethebamf:

“Yeah, Quirrell was a great teacher. There was just that minor drawback of him having Lord Voldemort sticking out of the back of his head!”

“Well, I had one that I was playing Quidditch the other night,” said Ron, screwing up his face in an effort to remember. “What do you think that means?”
“Probably that you’re going to be eaten by a giant marshmallow or something,” said Harry.

“Wow, I wonder what it’d be like to have a difficult life?” said Harry sarcastically. 

“Cool name,” said Harry, grinning, “but you’ll always be Ickle Diddykins to me.”

“Listening to the news! Again?”
“Well, it changes every day, you see,” said Harry. 

“You know your mother, Malfoy? The expression on her face - like she’s got dung under her nose? Is she like that all the time or just because you were with her?” 

“And they’d [the Death Eaters] love to have me,” said Harry sarcastically. “We’d be best pals if they didn’t keep trying to do me in.” 

“This is night, Diddykins. That’s what we call it when it goes all dark like this.” 

“Brilliant! It’s Potions last thing on Friday! Snape won’t have the time to poison us all!” 

“Pity you can’t attach an extra arm to yours [broom], Malfoy. Then it could catch the Snitch for you.” 

“I don’t know who Maxime thinks she’s kidding. If Hagrid’s half-giant, she definitely is. Big bones… the only thing that’s got bigger bones than her is a dinosaur.”

"you’re obsessed with your mental illness"

i know right? it’s almost like it impacts every part of my life

"it’s all in your head"

I know right? it’s almost like it’s a mental illness

LA, you’re hella cute all the time!

Men who want to be feminists do not need to be given a space in feminism. They need to take the space they have in society & make it feminist.
