Has anyone ever used evening primrose oil capsules?

The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation

"While the majority of domestic violence victims are women, abuse of men happens far more often than you’d probably expect. Typically, men are physically stronger than women but that doesn’t necessarily make it easier to escape the violence or the relationship. An abused man faces a shortage of resources, skepticism from police, and major legal obstacles, especially when it comes to gaining custody of his children from an abusive mother. No matter your age, occupation, or sexual orientation, though, you can overcome these challenges and escape the abuse.
Abused men can also reach out to the following organizations for help:
U.S. and Canada: 1-888-7HELPLINE (1-888-743-5754) The Domestic Abuse Helpline
UK: 01823 334244 ManKind Initiative
Australia: One in Three Campaign offers a number of crisis hotlines”

Oh and may it also be noted that Men are not the majority of domestic violence victims, according to the CDC. [x]
More info on Male Domestic Abuse Hotlines are here [x]
Learn about the signs of domestic abuse here [x]
Men Specific Domestic Abuse, not always physical [x]
I couldnt find any fundraisers for male victims of domestic abuse but I found plenty telling men they can stop it. If you know of anything people can donate to to help men, please put a link so others can help. Thank you.

Men who are victims of domestic abuse can call the same domestic violence hotlines as female victims:
New York City Domestic Violence Hotline1-800-621-HOPE (4673)
National Domestic Violence Hotline1-800-799-SAFE (7233)
With the exception of a few shelters that are congregate living settings, all domestic violence shelters in New York City are able to accommodate male victims.
Information and Support
Non-residential services such as counseling, support groups, legal assistance, advocacy and other services are also available for men.
Gay and Transgender men can access a full range of domestic violence services by calling the New York City Gay and Lesbian Anti-Violence Project Hotline at (212) 714-1141.
Straight men can obtain domestic violence services at most non-residential domestic violence programs in New York City. At some of these programs they may be welcome to join existing support groups. Because there are so few straight men coming forward for services, there are no programs operating support groups specifically for straight men.  Some men find women’s support groups helpful since their issues are the same, while others feel uncomfortable.

reblog because tumblr seems to forget men can be abused too

Reblog because nobody should be abused, and everybody should have access to help.

reblog because Gender Norms and Sexism don’t just effect women but men too.

Excellent!  Well-said!  *clap clap*

"THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL YOU WHY":
-Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid skirt when I was 10
-and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced
-Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ favorite “joke” when I was 11
-and because when an 11-year-old girl in Texas was raped by 18 men the New York Times wrote of how the girl “dressed older than her age”
-Because I started counting calories when I was 14
-and because when Malala Yousafzai was 14 she was shot in the head for trying to go to school
-Because I heard a boy greet a girl with “hey slut” today at age 16 -and because when a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio was filmed being raped by two boys at a party while unconscious the CNN reporters talked about how tragic it was because the rapists had such bright futures as athletes
-Because I will have to watch my drink at all bars and parties when I am 22
-and because when CeCe McDonald was 22 she was sentenced to 41 months in prison for defending herself against a man who screamed transphobic, racist insults at her and then slashed her face with a bottle
-Because no matter what age I am the biggest threat to men will still be heart disease, and the biggest threat to women will still be men.
-Because it is not just about me, because it is not just about anger, because it is not just a JOKE, because it is not just about “hating men,” because it is not just about girls with vaginas, because it is not just about ending “slut”, because it is not just about white straight girls in Rookie magazine, because it is not just about writing on backs, because it is not just about the fact that gay men are “fags” but lesbians are “hot,” because it is not just about pictures of thin white girls being the only google image results for the search phrase “beautiful women”, because it is not just about writing signs, because it is not just about what she was wearing or how many times she said yes before she changed her answer to no, because misogyny is not just about one thing and feminism is not just about one thing and it is not just “a trend” and it will not “happen” in just one way.
-And because yes. It is about equality for EVERYONE, but first and foremost it needs to be about equality for girls, because they are not treated equally to men, in every single sense, and you are not going to take feminism away from me and call me bossy/hostile/aggressive and make this about yourself or make it into a joke, because truth be told, I’m not joking and I’m tired of explaining. If you want to call yourself a feminist, you work hard to spread feminism, you do not turn this into a contest of whose struggle is greater and constantly demand to know what you can get out of feminism personally. Feminism is not just about you, or me, it is about everyone. If you’re male and you’re tired of men being stereotyped as hyper-masculine, soulless, sexist, inherent leader-tyrant creatures, then go out and prove the patriarchy wrong and fight for girls, like someone with a soul who believes in equality would. Then, yes, feminism will be about everyone.

Anyone who thinks extended breastfeeding is weird but gives their children cow milk needs to think for a few minutes.

Nurse your kids for as long as you want, Mamas. Nurse them til they’re 1, 4, 10… Anyone who tells you it’s weird needs a reminder of what dairy is.

lol i dont allow my kids to drink cows milk from their teat now do i?no.  Breastfeed your kid but put it in a dam cup if they are over 3  dam.
Now try again love.

I didn’t say anything about the method of drinking the milk… And your aversion to children drinking from their mother’s breast is a personal one, so keep it to yourself.
