I think one of the most badass moments of Criminal Minds was when Reid saved both his and Hotch’s life by rambling for 13 minutes straight.

Pretty sure I already reblogged this but what the hell.  Love this campaign.  

campaign bringing awareness to homeless youth

I adore this campaign so much.

Okay just going to inform people about being young and homeless for a second
In most states, it is a status offense to run away from home, and in most states your parents can drag you home kicking and screaming.
46% leave because of physical abuse.
17% leave because of sexual abuse.
50% of homeless youth were kicked out, or their parent/guardian didn’t care/try to stop them when they left.
40% of the homeless in America are under 18.
Okay, so obviously in trying to fix homelessness, fixing youth homelessness is very important. But our society is completely restricting of youth being independent. A youth who is unhappy at home has very few options.
A youth is restricted from getting jobs without parental permission (and of course few homeless teens can get that). Without the option of getting a legal job, youth are forced into prostitution (survival sex), drug selling, and theft.
A yout cannot rent an apartment without parental permission.
Most hotels and motels will not let somebody under 18 book a room.
A youth cannot even get medical help without parental permission (even if they could afford it).
To house a homeless youth for more than 24 hours is a felony.
To aid a homeless youth in finding housing (besides a homeless shelter or their parent’s/guardian’s residence) is illegal.
Even shelters place 48 hour restrictions on youth without parental permission.
40% of homeless youth are LGBTQ.
Our misguided belief that these restrictions help youth- that these kids will go home and all will be well- is naive and harmful. It is ridiculous that we place parental rights and our notion that kids shouldn’t leave their parents above youth safety.

i have seen hell

A boy sprawled next to me on the bus, elbows out, knee pointing sharp into my thigh.
He frowned at me when I uncrossed my legs, unfolded my hands
and splayed out like boys are taught to: all big, loose limbs.
I made sure to jab him in the side with my pretty little sharp purse.
At first he opened his mouth like I expected him to, but instead of speaking up he sat there, quiet, and took it for the whole bus ride.
Like a girl.

Once, a boy said my anger was cute, and he laughed,
and I remember thinking that I should sit there and take it,
because it isn’t ladylike to cause a scene and girls aren’t supposed to raise their voices.
But then he laughed again and all I saw
was my pretty little sharp nails digging into his cheek
before drawing back and making a horribly unladylike fist.
(my teacher informed me later that there is no ladylike way of making a fist.)

When we were both in the principal’s office twenty minutes later
him with a bloody mouth and cheek, me with skinned knuckles,
I tried to explain in words that I didn’t have yet
that I was tired of having my emotions not taken seriously
just because I’m a girl.

Girls are taught: be small, so boys can be big.
Don’t take up any more space than absolutely necessary.
Be small and smooth with soft edges
and hold in the howling when they touch you and it hurts:
the sandpaper scrape of their body hair that we would be shamed for having,
the greedy hands that press too hard and too often take without asking permission.

Girls are taught: be quiet and unimposing and oh so small
when they heckle you with their big voices from the window of a car,
because it’s rude to scream curse words back at them, and they’d just laugh anyway.
We’re taught to pin on smiles for the boys who jeer at us on the street
who see us as convenient bodies instead of people.

Girls are taught: hush, be hairless and small and soft,
so we sit there and take it and hold in the howling,
pretend to be obedient lapdogs instead of the wolves we are.
We pin pretty little sharp smiles on our faces instead of opening our mouths,
because if we do we get accused of silly women emotions
blowing everything out of proportion with our PMS, we get
condescending pet names and not-so-discreet eyerolls.

Once, I got told I punched like a girl.
I told him, Good. I hope my pretty little sharp rings leave scars.

life hack: remember to compliment people on qualities other than their looks. remind them of their kindness, thoughtfulness, and intelligence. tell them about how powerful and capable they are.
