Two brides have become two of the most kickass women in the world by marrying to protest against homophobia in Russia.
Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole. ‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.

"Oh, you don’t wanna recognize my gender? Okay then lol guess you have to recognize my marriage"

  • you’re okay
  • you can do this
  • today might not be a good day, but you’re alive and that’s okay
  • it’s okay

The “she has ruined her body” argument pisses me off so much. 

Because what it translates to is: This grown fucking woman decided to make a choice in how she wants to treat her body, but I don’t like it because it doesn’t make my wiener happy. 

Seriously, shut the fuck up.

The list of advice reads:

Keep calm and reassure other people who may be nearby.

Don’t hold the person down or try to stop his or her movements.

Time the seizure with your watch.

Clear the area around the person of anything hard or sharp.

Put something soft (folded sweatshirt) under their head.

DO NOT try to force open their mouth with anything hard or your finger!

Turn the person gently onto one side. This will help keep the airway clear.

Stay with the person until the seizure has ended naturally.

Be friendly and reassuring as consciousness returns.

Offer to call a friend, relative, or taxi to help the person get home if they need assistance.

Seizure First Aid. 

Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it. 

100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)

This is so important!

So many people don’t understand how to react to a seizure. This is important.

God only knows how many times I’ve done this and how many people I really wish knew this to have helped me as a little girl.

Long post but THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT for all my friends because I am prone to seizures and I want everyone to know what to do when I have an episode.

I’d also suggest taking long deep breathes to come yourself down whenever you feel upset. It sounds cliche but it works.

And/or go do something you love: read, listen to music, read, etc… Find something or a bunch of things that make you happy and stick with it!!!
