In 31 states, rapists are allowed to sue victims they’ve impregnated for custody rights.
There’s a case in Boston, MA right now in which a rapist is taking advantage of this. He pleaded guilty of rape in 2011 and was sentenced to 16 years probation; however, this sentence includes 16 years of family court as well, which the victim must also attend. He’s using this to sue for joint custody of her child and will only withdraw his law suit if he is free from paying any form of child support. This entire sentence seems like much more of a punishment for the victim than it is for the rapist, and for the state to allow such a thing, the victim is suing.
As stated in the court complaint, “Even if the family court ruled in the [victim]’s favor on issues currently in dispute, such as whether the criminal defendant should be granted visitation rights to [her] child, [she] will suffer harm from the constant threat of new issues arising in family court until her child reaches adulthood, including, for example, efforts by the criminal defendant to seek to modify child support orders and enforce his parental rights at the trial court level and on appeal.”
If this woman is forced to attend 16 years of family court with her rapist, she is not only forced to confront a traumatic event that she should never have to deal with again, but she is subjected to the possibility of losing pieces of her child to him over and over again for all of those years. In addition to this constant state of fear and anguish she would face, just by being sent to something considered ‘family’ court—for her and her rapist—she’s being disrespected and her rape undermined by even the suggestion that this is a family situation. By doing this, the law is making felony into family.
In 31 states, rapists are actually given rights instead of having much of anything taken away. In being given these rights, they are being given the chance to further torment the woman and possibly abuse the child. It is not okay to reward rapists and further punish victims, and the ignorance of rape and how our justice system is handling it needs to turn around.
Please sign this petition to ban rapists from being able to sue for custody rights. This issue is so little known, yet so important, and I don’t know any better way of trying to make this change.

Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors
Memories may be passed down through generations in DNA in a process that may be the underlying cause of phobias
Memories can be passed down to later generations through genetic switches that allow offspring to inherit the experience of their ancestors, according to new research that may explain how phobias can develop. Scientists have long assumed that memories and learned experiences built up during a lifetime must be passed on by teaching later generations or through personal experience. However, new research has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. Researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, found that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. The results may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias – it may be based on the inherited experiences of their ancestors.

#so… #the fact that most people are scared of features such as #pale skin black or dark eyes and long sharp teeth #or that this is most people’s idea of something scary-looking #could have been passed down in human genes #meaning there could have been an event long ago which caused humans… #to be scared of creatures that look like this? #im not saying it was aliens but it was aliens
Ok which one of my ancestors gave me the crippling fear of spiders
I used to have 6 cats. Now I have 4.
Feeding 6 cats a strict diet was really hard, and most often resulted in chaos and injuries, so I switched to open feeding. Predictably, they gained weight. Like, a lot of weight.
So, I decided that I should switch…
Do you want a tiny or healthy dog?
You might all have heard about teacups and thought, well if this isn’t the cutest thing!
… Well, no, what goes on behind the curtains most certainly is not cute. What goes on inside of their tiny bodies is not cute. These dogs sure do have a dark story.
You see, there is no such thing as a “reputable teacup breeder”. Why you might ask, well, teacup is not a recognised size of dog or a breed of its own. You might go on a teacup breeders website and see “FCI teacup puppies for sale!” … it’s a lie. FCI, or any other kennel clubs, do most certainly not promote or register this size of dog. This isn’t even a breed. Got my point now?
Well, now let’s move to the breeding of them. Their problem starts before they are born. Before a litter is planned, the breeder finds two, cute undersized dogs (preferably under four pounds). Too often, the parents are closely related. That only increases the risk of series of genetic issues. Then, the mating begins…
Most females are bred on the ninth to fifteen day of their heat cycles. Eggs can be fertilized for up to 72 hours any of these breeding. Because of that… you puppies can be conceived a week after the first ones. When the puppies that were first conceived are fully matured and ready to be born, the younger ones obviously come too, week premature (that’s a lot for a dog). Often the older puppies are put down or worse, killed, so the premature ones are the only one who get to live.
But it’s not even guaranteed if the puppies or female will live… The female’s body is so small it causes many complications, especially if the female is carrying more than two puppies. Often the puppies survives… but the mother doesn’t.
Now, the puppies are born. There, their tough life begins.
Many teacup puppies are starved so they don’t grow. That does explain how tiny and fragile they look. Breeders might also use other ways to stop the growing, in example, by using no fat, protein, rices… only food with no nutrition. Puppies are also often sold at three or four weeks, but the breeders claim their older. That can cause a lot of emotional problems.
Now, move on to the health problems.
The most common one is hypoglycemla, which means they have too low blood sugar level. It can cause several seizures and death very quickly. Because of this problems, teacups need to be fed few times a day. This can also cause digestive problems.
Then. the other really common problem, hydrocephalus. That means they have water on their brain. It causes too much pressure on the brain. Symptoms are painful, but they include; Vomiting, seizures, intense headache, and trouble walking. It also causes mental disability and tunnel vision… and it may cause death.
Other common health problems are live shunts, serious heart problems and respiratory problems.
Teacups cannot regulate their body temperament, so they get easily cold and teacups dying due to cold is not unheard of.
Then of course, their tiny body is very fragile. Their bone structure is very poorly built.
They do get hurt easily, and if you accidentally step on your teacup… it might get severely hurt, or even worse. They can break bones if the jump off the couch, or if they try to jump on the couch. If you have kids, they might want to pick them up and who knows how that will end. Larger dogs can also play rough and harm them. Everything can hurt them and they need to be monitored.
Then of course, it’s a fraud. There is no such thing as a registered teacup, or AKC teacup or whatever. In fact, there are no such thing as a teacup- they’re not a breed on their own, and people are fighting against them.
Cuteness can kill too easily.
REBLOGGING FOR THE LOVE OF GOD because at my old work we had this girl come in with this tiny ass teacup poodle who didn’t know any better and this poor little dog was in so much pain and the owner didn’t even know. all of its internal organs were under developed and failing it, and it was one if the most heartbreaking things i’ve ever had to experience.
SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you see people going “oh teacup pups are so cute’ or ‘i want to get a teacup puppy, they’re so adorable!” please educate them. Because these dogs, while cute, are NOT healthy. And the more people that buy them, the more these horrid people are encouraged to breed them. PLEASE do research if you are ever going to buy or adopt an animal. Know what you are getting into.
I went through something like this, and I wish I hadn’t. Someone my family knows got one of these little hell-spawns, and upon knowing what that person did it made my heart sink. I got to go and see the creature of demonic ‘cuteness’, and just staring into its eyes I knew that the owner was in deep shit. The thing was about the size of a mini plush pug, weighing barely anything. And when we finally did get a chance to walk it, it walked with a wobble in its step, and was slower than a snail and turtle combined. And you know what? The thing didn’t live too long! It had hydrocephalus, and it couldn’t hold on much longer after the surgery (Which was done by a great surgeon, the best there is for animals). I would’ve been sad, but quite frankly, I think it was for the better, because it would’ve most likely suffered for the rest of its life in pain and agony…. We took care of it for a while when the owner was traveling, and it was already painful enough just watching the thing wobbling around and barely eating… I never want to get involved with something as heartbreaking like this was, ever, ever again… I strongly believe that breeding of these things should be outlawed. It’s just a terrible scheme to scam you out of your money and your life. Do your research, people! Educate yourselves!
Oh, y’know…still going on about marrying me and the usual stalking.
Kris and I rebooted our human Sonic ask blog we forgot about because we’ve been busy, but we’re updating it finally now! We’ll be working on it during our free time, so don’t worry, your ask will get answered when either of us aren’t stocked up on work.
OK GUYS DO ME A HUGE FAVOR, THIS IS ULTRA IMPORTANT MY CAR GOT STOLEN IN HOLYOKE MASSACHUSETTS AROUND 3PM SO IF YOU SEE THE RED CHRYSLER BELOW WITH LIC. PLATE NUMBER 822 FW5 ANYWHERE IN THE WESTERN TO EASTERN PARTS OF MASSACHUSETTS PLEASE CALL THE HOLYOKE POLICE DEPARTMENT…
Does anyone know how to retrace an ask? I replied to one earlier regarding friend codes before recording theirs and the ask vanished, so I have no way of finding it again.
Hey guys, just looking to add some Friend Codes into my Poke’mon Safari in X. I’m specifically looking for Bug/Poison Safari’s with Whirlipede for Speed Boost. If anyone wants to add me to their Safari I have a Normal one with Audino’s, Dunsparce, and Ditto’s. Just ask-message me and I’ll give you my friend code.
