Where All of Your Wildest Dreams Come True

1,677 notes

When a Muslim Woman demands justice in her community,
Talk about how she “unveiled” the misogyny of muslim men.

When a Muslim Woman is sexually assaulted in a public space,
Attach a photograph of a woman being stripped naked in Tahrir.

When a Muslim Woman stands up to political oppression,
Tell them that she is the first, the only; an anomaly.

When a Muslim Woman recounts instances of sexual harassment,
Use the term “Arab Street” frequently & attach a 99% statistic.

When a Muslim Woman participates in a revolution,
Regularly use the words “sexual revolution”, “honor” and “virginity”.

When a Muslim Woman discusses intimate partner violence,
Insert a photograph of a model in niqab revealing one bruised eye.

When a Muslim Woman stands up to the Taliban,
Give her a book deal and fly her around the world.

When a Muslim Woman stands up to your tax dollars,
Plug your ears and call her a terrorist.

Remember folks, heroin IS an opiate. All opiates/opioids are derivatives of the opium poppy. Heroin, morphine, percocet, oxycontin, vicodin, etc…all opium derivatives. I never tried heroin, but tried opiates on many occasions and certainly abused them. I was only a step or two away from heading down a worse road.
Addiction is first a biological and genetic disorder, before it hijacks our freewill center (the frontal cortex) and turns our spiritual condition to smoldering ash. There is a reason the Big Book opens with “The Doctor’s Opinion.”
Be fearless, be thorough. Ignorance is not bliss. Knowledge is power. Learn the facts. Know your enemy.

I can’t stress this enough. Every single person I know who had or has a heroin problem started with painkillers. Every single one. It is the common prologue to all of our tragedies.
This is why I take messing around with painkillers *very* seriously and my stomach turns into knots when someone tells me they like them.
(Of course if you actually need them for chronic pain that is a completely separate issue - I’m speaking purely in terms of recreational abuse here)

Oliver North was not a soldier, he was a criminal and a murderer. The terrorists he funded illegally with the profits of illegal arms sales to Iran assassinated dozens of Nicaraguan candidates for office and fought a decade-long civil war that left more than 50,000 dead.
