I can’t remember the last time I saw a gender related post that was all about equality rather female or male superiority. You all claim to want equality but it doesn’t look like it. Much vindictive. So bias. Wow.
I had my father get sick when I was 22. And I was poor, alright. And my father had an ulcer, and it exploded and you know all these toxins get in your blood. And basically, my father died, whatever, 50 days after his ulcer. So I had a father get sick while I was poor.
My mother got sick when I was rich. And my mother, you know… I don’t really want to get into it, but my mother was sicker than my father. And my mother’s alive. My mother’s fine, OK? I remember going to the hospital to see my mother and wondering, ‘Was I in the right place?’ Like, this was a hotel. Like it had a concierge, man.

Keeping that one guy off your sofa and in a library
hello tumblr world, this is SUPER IMPORTANT. this guy is one of the sweetest, most special people i’ve ever met and is one of my dearest friends, and i’m afraid he won’t be able to graduate from the college of his dreams if he can’t get some help financially. even if you can’t donate, please please please reblog to spread his cause in hopes that someone with heavier pockets might, because we all need a little help from our friends sometimes.
