Lets spread this one phrase as far around tumblr as we can as a tribute to the great Robin Williams

Self defence sprays that are legal to carry and use in the United Kingdom

I’ve seen a lot of people (mostly women, for reasons which may be obvious) speaking about being worried when going out, be it alone or even with friends, both in the day and at night. I know that a lot of female friends of mine carry around a can of antiperspirant or a pot of pepper to use if they’re ever attacked. What I know a lot of people don’t realise is that there are products out there which work in a violent situation and help in catching the assailant for the best part of a week afterwards.

Known as ‘criminal identifiers’, these sprays are brightly coloured dyes which can be sprayed in the face of an attacker. Unlike things such as CS or Pepper sprays, criminal identifier sprays are legal in the UK.

There’s a few available on the market, with farbgel and Mace’s Stoppared being the mostly highly recommended.

What these sprays do is release a sticky, brightly coloured dye. It’s difficult to wipe away and stains the skin a bright red colour. No matter how hard an attacker might try to remove it from their skin and clothing, the staining typically lasts for around a week and doesn’t start to fade until after a few days have passed.

Unlike CS and Pepper sprays (which, again, aren’t legal in the UK) criminal identifier sprays don’t cause irritation or pain to an attacker. Instead, they expand and clog up the area sprayed with a kind of sticky foam that’s difficult to wipe away. It should give you enough time to escape and report someone whose face resembles a baboon’s arse to the police.

Each can of the sprays costs around £10 each, though it may be cheaper when buying multiple canisters and if you shop around.

People say “phase” like impermanence means insignificance. Show me a permanent state of the self.

I present the most badass gifset on Tumblr.

Legitimately turned on by this

This is the best thing.

Oh my god

I don’t even know this fandom and this is cool.

Reason #999 why the cartoon will always be ONE MILLION PERCENT better than that travesty of a movie. They did so much research and put so much detail in you don’t even notice.

Bonus trivia: Toph got a unique martial arts style to match her distinct version of Earthbending (Southern Praying Mantis style, I think) which the creators found out later was (according to legend) invented by a blind woman. Totally a coincidence, but still so fucking cool.

(If you don’t watch the show, Toph is both blind from birth and the best damn Earthbender in the world. Also, GO WATCH THE SHOW.)

Asker Anonymous Asks:
I see so much on how biological females can look androgynous, but where are the resources for us biological males? It's much harder to just "figure something out" when you're over 6 foot with broad shoulders. Where do I start looking? Does anybody know?

Followers, help me out here! I personally have no clue, as a naturally androgynous biological female, I’ve never needed to look honestly. Does anybody have resources or ideas or anything?

genderqueerconfessions:

I’ve lived my whole life as a woman and just recently I’ve started identifying as agender. On the one hand, I don’t mind using female pronouns because I’m used to them, I’ve never bothered with men’s clothing because women’s clothing is prettier and fits better, I…

I made an indiegogo campaign for my surgery with REWARDS!! Please share this!

My name is Charley and I am a 20 year old disabled trans artist. I have been trying my best to save up for a much-needed chest surgery which would majorly improve my quality of life, but being disabled and trans makes it very hard to find work even if I was physically able. I am doing my best to get by every day, but the possibility of affording this surgery at my current time seems nearly unattainable and hopeless. I am hoping that with this campaign, I can finally make this goal a reality, or at least get much closer to affording it!

Homophobes who say “but the gay lifestyle leads to depression and higher risks of suicide”.

Like really? And why is that? Whose fault do you think that is?

I recently did an interview with Shor LGBTQ, an online portal for LGBTQ South Asian creative writing. I talk about bisexual identity and the obstacles one faces being bisexual. I also talk about how I personally experience bisexuality and how my attraction works, something I’ve been meaning to commit to words for a while.

Please check it out if its the kind of thing that intrigues you and look around the site. They have a few other great interviews.
