when u find out that someone u thought was all innocent is actually kinky as fuck
When people are abused and assaulted, it is like the doors to their souls slam shut. The goal of Joyful Heart is to let the light, and the life, back in—to banish the darkness and let the healing begin.

(as problematic and trigerry SVU is, I think Mariska Hartigay was the first actress I came across that used her celebrity in a non shitty way. Even though her character is fictional, she recognized that sexual assault and rape isn’t, and that that for every fictional victim on her show, there are thousands of real life victims struggling to survive. She knows her character is famous for listening to victims, so she uses her power in real life to do that)

Just to be clear, I do often use “dude” as a “gender-neutral” term, especially when I’m excited, but if that ever makes you uncomfortable or you feel I’m not respecting your gender, you can tell me to stop because me getting to use a certain word is not even close to being as important as you being comfortable around me, okay?
This is a good attitude to have about the word “dude”

Video is a teacher talking to a classroom of deaf students.
Teacher: I want to talk about language today. When a child is born, what is the first thing the parents hear in the hospital?
Student: “Your child failed the hearing test.”
Teacher: Right. A baby is five hours old and he’s failed something already? What about the term “hearing loss”? What does that word evoke?
Student: Hearing is the norm. Deaf is less than. Lacking.
Teacher: Are we “less than”? Do you believe being deaf has taken away or added to your life? If someone invented a pill you could take it tonight and you would wake up hearing how many of you would take it? *looks around the room* None of you. Why not?
Student: Because being deaf gives you friends anywhere you go.
Student: And a way of seeing the world that’s different from anyone else.
Student: Hearing kids don’t know who they are. We do. We’re deaf: first, last, always.
Student: Hearing people think they have more than us…their lives are better. We have it so “hard.” But I’d never give up being deaf to be like anyone else. Never.
Teacher: Not hearing loss. Deaf gain.
