why the fuck does everyone in the purge movies want to kill people if crime was legal i’d find a way to erase my student debt and also probably steal a bunch of new clothes
The cousin of one of our team members is battling a devastating and degenerative combination of medical conditions, and we need your help to get her the treatment that has renewed her hope and could save her life!
19 year old Roisin was born with Cystic Fibrosis and was recently diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension. The combination of these two conditions has caused a very sudden, rapid decline in her health. She is now dependent on a wheelchair and oxygen tank, which she cannot physically carry herself, and has to spend most of her time in a hospital over 50 miles from her home, friends, and family. With the additional diagnosis of PH, Roisin’s quality of life and prognosis have significantly deteriorated.
When Roisin stopped responding to treatment, it was believed that the only option for her was a double lung transplant. Sadly, 1 in 3 CF patients dying whilst on the transplant waiting list. With the complications from her PH, Roisin’s fate was looking grim.
However, there is a new, alternative treatment to lung transplants which helps repair and heal the damaged lung tissues as well as provide healthy, working cells which will slow down the progress of the CF. This treatment involves harvesting adult stem cells from Roisin’s bone marrow and that of a genetic relative who does not suffer from CF, mixing the two, educating and activating them to become lung cells, then putting these new stem cells back into Roisin via an IV line.
This treatment has lifted Roisin’s spirits and given her the strength to keep fighting what she thought before was an impossible battle. It also means any donated lungs can go to someone who doesn’t have any other options, as this treatment is not a viable option for everyone.
Unfortunately, this treatment is expensive. Roisin needs to raise £55,000 (about $89,000) as quickly as possible to have a chance at saving her life. We’re racing against the clock as Roisin’s health worsens, and any effort is greatly appreciated!
Thank you from all of us on Team Purgatorgy!
Even of its just a signal boost, any help would be appreciated.
do you think whoever was designing the default netflix avatar made a mistake somewhere but just sat there laughing at the result for so long that the whole design team decided to keep it

Yes. YES. Fuck Columbus forever.
I’ll always distinctly remember being a -child-, maybe 7? and even then being so horribly angry about Columbus. I was originally vocal about it. The real kicker? I quickly learned to shut up about how I felt.
I tried to talk about how infuriating it was to learn how Columbus invaded and destroyed an entire native people. And every adult I talked to tried to convince me everything Columbus did was totally okay. Apparently children aren’t supposed to learn about Columbus and find him to be anything but ~brave~ and ~adventurous~ or some shit.
I’m still, even now, fucking appalled anyone, ANYONE, could so easily and thoughtlessly try to indoctrinate a small child into accepting genocide of native people. It’s …disgusting, and so extremely telling of how far our culture will go in its dehumanization and erasure of the violence native people endured and continue to endure at our hands.
So. Yes. Fuck Columbus.
I hope someday we all celebrate Indigenous People Day and only remember Columbus for his crimes against humanity.
Well I can’t call the not-boyfriend my not-boyfriend anymore. I guess I just have to call him boyfriend now.

I feel like the last 3 are very accurate
“I remember when I was doing “Rent” and I was too thin, and I was doing that on purpose because I’m dying, I’m a HIV+ drug addict. I remember having to eat raw food and doing all this work to make sure I could stay thin… And I remember everyone asking me when I was doing press for the movie, “what did you do to get so thin? You looked great!” and I’m like, “I looked emaciated.” It’s a form of violence in the way that we look at women and how we expect them to look and be, for… what’s sake? No…
I love her so much, you guys.
