"My name is Michael Hunter. I was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2013 & was told on June 11, 2014 that I only have a few months left to live if I can’t find a donor. Please help me with my biological family or a donor match! I was born in Columbus, OH 3/1/1985 at Doctor’s North Hospital and given the name Christopher Brown. Please share"
Michael is a friend, I’m asking that you all take the time to share this. He desperately needs a bone marrow donor and there is very limited number of African American donors. Without a donor Michael is going to die.
Michael was adopted and does not know his birth family. We know he has a half brother but have no information about him.
He does not specifically need an African American Donor but because of all of the things that factor into finding a match (blood type, dna tissue etc.) , someone of similar descent is more likely to be a closer match.
If anyone knows anything about Michael’s birth family or if you would like to see if you are a match, please privately message me. I can put you in touch with him and his caregivers directly!
We hope through spreading awareness we can either find his birth family whom he does not know or find a donor match. Michael lives in the Cincinnati, OH area. Please dont just like this or scroll past. Please share this! You could save his life!
BOOST. Its so hard for Black people to find donors.

anyone between the ages of 18 and 25 (via prettyboystyles)
uh… 18 and 50.
I can’t believe I’m an adult, when did this happen? What am I going to be when I grow up? Oh god, I’m already grown up. All the other adults know what they’re doing, but I don’t. How could this have happened. Next thing you know, I’ll be dead. ~ 45+(via chuuface)
Brand new episode of Tropes vs Women is online! Please heed the content warning on this video. It contains some especially triggering scenes of sexual violence.
"We must remember that games don’t just entertain. Intentional or not, they always express a set of values, and present us with concepts of normalcy. So what do games that casually rely on depictions of female victimhood tell us about women vis-a-vis their place in society? The pattern… works to reinforce the myth that women are naturally fated to be objectified, vulnerable and perpetually victimized by male violence.”These games also tend to frame misogyny and exploitation as an everlasting fact of life, something inescapable and unchangeable. This dominant narrative surrounding the inevitability of female objectification and victimhood is so powerful that it not only defines our concepts of reality, but it even sets the parameters of how we think about entirely fictional worlds, even those taking place in the realms of fantasy and science fiction.”It’s so normalized that when these elements are critiqued, the knee-jerk reaction I hear most often is that if these stories did not include the exploitation of women, then the game world would feel too unrealistic, or not historically accurate. What does it say about our culture when games routinely break the laws of physics and no one bats an eye? When dragons, ogres and magic are inserted into historically influenced settings without objection? We’re perfectly willing to suspend our disbelief when it comes to multiple lives, superpowers, health regeneration and the ability to carry dozens of weapons in a massive invisible backpack. But somehow, the idea of a world without sexual violence or exploitation is deemed too bizarre to be believable.”The truth is, that objectification and sexual violence are neither normal nor inevitable. We do not have to accept them as some kind of necessary cultural backdrop in our media stories. Contrary to popular belief, the system of patriarchy has no existed for all of history, across all time, and all cultures. And as such, it can be changed. It is possible to imagine fictional worlds, even of the dark, twisted dystopian variety, where the oppression and exploitation of women is not framed as something expected and inevitable. When we see fictional universes challenging and transcending systemic gender oppression it subverts the dominant paradigm within our collective consciousness and helps make a more just society feel possible, tangible and within reach.”
