I'm Melissa. I'm 21. I live in Pennsylvania. I decided my old about me was dumb and deleted it.

I want to see you smile, I want to see you laugh.
I want to hear you say that everything’s okay and that you swear, you’re going to call me back.
Don’t be afraid to cry, don’t be afraid to write a letter.
Don’t be afraid to try and tell me that you need someone to help you out,
And make things a little better.
Alcohol is not the answer, it only makes things worse.
I wish that I had known that when I drank myself to sleep at night,
And always thought that I would be the first, to die
Out of all my friends, but we were already dead on the inside.
From stupid drugs and cigarettes that kept us from being alive.
It’s okay to feel depressed, feel your heartbeat in your chest.
Realize you’re alive, and for that moment you survived.

Women Prisoners Sterilized To Cut Welfare Cost In California
In California, prison doctors have sterilized at least 148 women, mainly Mexicans, from 2006 to 2010. Why? They don’t want to have to provide welfare funding for any children they may have in the future and to eliminate ‘defectives’ from the gene pool.
The sterilization procedures cost California taxpayers $147,460 between 1997 and 2010. The doctors at the prison argue it is money well-spent.
Dr. James Heinrich, an OB-GYN at Valley State Prison for Women, said, “Over a 10-year period, that isn’t a huge amount of money compared to what you save in welfare paying for these unwanted children – as they procreated more.”
In 1909, California passed the country’s third sterilization law, authorizing reproductive surgeries of patients committed to state institutions for the “feebleminded” and “insane” that were deemed suffering from a “mental disease which may have been inherited and is likely to be transmitted to descendants.” Based on this eugenic logic, 20,000 patients in more than ten institutions were sterilized in California from 1909 to 1979. Worried about charges of “cruel and unusual punishment,” legislators attached significant provisions to sterilization in state prisons. Despite these restrictions, about 600 men received vasectomies at San Quentin in the 1930s when the superintendent flaunted the law.
Moreover, there was a discernible racial bias in the state’s sterilization and eugenics programs. Preliminary research on a subset of 15,000 sterilization orders in institutions (conducted by Stern and Natalie Lira) suggests that Spanish-surnamed patients, predominantly of Mexican origin, were sterilized at rates ranging from 20 to 30 percent from 1922 to 1952, far surpassing their proportion of the general population.
In her recent book, Miroslava Chávez-García shows, through exhaustively researched stories of youth of color who were institutionalized in state reformatories, and sometimes subsequently sterilized, how eugenic racism harmed California’s youngest generation in patterns all too reminiscent of detention and incarceration today. California was the most zealous sterilizer, carrying out one-third of the approximately 60,000 operations performed in the 32 states that passed eugenic sterilization laws from 1907 to 1937.
Although such procedures may seem harsh, they are not illegal. The Supreme Court ruled in 1927 that women can be forcibly sterilized in jail in Buck vs Bell. Writing for the majority, Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. said, “Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”

If I’m being unpleasant it’s because my head hurts and it is deserved anyway.

I think we’re all thinking of the same thing but don’t dare speak its name for fear of summoning it.

ARE THOSE BLURRED FUCKING LIMES

I think that a sexist song about objectifying women and promoting rape culture should make you a little bit more than “uncomfortable”.
