There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?”
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human.
Therapy animals save lives.
These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury.
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!
This is the most upsetting thing I’ve seenI can’t stop fucking laughing

I don’t even know what this is from
But I like it
Mouse over text on the comic’s webpage: “I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.”
The most important thing you can possibly be taught, above, in comic format.
12-year-old invents Braille printer using Lego set
The Braigo printer cost its inventor about $350, making it more affordable than other Braille printers that can retail for more than $2,000.
And because I seriously side-eye this Western journalism trend of never crediting and NAMING the actual inventors in the headlines (especially when they’re young POC)
this inventor’s name is Shubham Banerjee, and he is making his glorious design completely open source, publishing it online FREE of charge! Just remember this kid’s name before some crusty old white dude “innovates” his design and takes all the credit.
You go, Shubham Banerjee.
i mean, why yell at the willfully ignorant when you can make fun of them instead?
Laura on Strombo!!! <3
damn, this is an intense interview.
Seriously excellent interview. I didn’t know she’d moved to Chicago. Maybe I’ll run in to her some time. Of course, I’m far too much of a suburban dork to get be her friend, but she seems so very cool and down to earth.
Whenever I watch an interview with a trans women I brace myself for when the interviewer asks something offensive but it never happened here so yeah, it was pretty great. Deff worth a watch.
Also, goddamn Laura just keeps getting hotter. < 3
What a respectful and actually kind sweet interview.
This is dude (George Stroumboulopoulos) is a pretty legit interviewer, so I’m not surprised that he did well. Well worth the twenty minutes of your time. Also Joan Jett shows up for a hot, glorious, second.
I haven’t finished watching it but Beck tagged this for discussions of suicide and police brutality
I’ll finish this later. I just. have a lot of feelings.
This is far and away the most respectful interview of a trans* person that I’ve ever seen on a mainstream TV show. Also, Laura Jane Grace is a goddess as usual.
(Also as always fuck Florida cops)
