this is a callout post about AO3/tumblr user sunbreaksdown, who now goes by swapcats. these events happened roughly 7 years ago, and at that time she went by the name icor.
sunbreaksdown, whose name is sam, was in a relationship with me for a year while i was 16/17 years old and she was 19/20 years old. she willfully engaged in sexual activities with me on numerous occasions, frequently initiating them herself. she was arrested for having sex with a minor (me), and went to prison for 2 months in the state of california while she was visiting me.
what happened between us ruined my life, and i need to finally speak about this publicly.
receipts are here on this blog.

tbh asexual/aromantic representation is super fucking important because i didnt know what aromantacy was until about six months ago and im 18, almost 19 years old. i thought something was so fucking wrong with me. i forced myself into romantic relationships and lied to the people i cared about just to try and fix myself and ended up hurting them and ruining a lot of friendships in the process. if you dont think ace/aro representation is important then i dont have time for you.

Canada: land-wise, it’s one of the world’s biggest countries, but population-wise, it’s anything but.
A map posted to Imgur on Thursday shows us precisely why.
The map comes from the Government of Canada’s “Plant Hardiness Site,” which contains images showing “Extreme Minimum Temperature Zones” throughout the Great White North.
“Extreme Minimum Temperature" refers to the lowest average temperatures that are projected in specific areas each year.
In so doing, it shows people what plants can grow where — and, by extension, why so many of Canada’s people are concentrated in cities and along coastlines.
Ellesmere Island in the north, for example, shows a bone-chilling minimum temperature of anywhere between -56.7 and -51.1 degrees Celsius, while much of Baffin Island measures from -42.8 to -40 degrees Celsius.
It’s only when you hit the cities and the coasts that the temperature becomes bearable. In the Toronto area, for example, extreme minimum temperature is measured at around -26.1 to -23.3 degrees Celsius.
But things really warm up when you travel to B.C.’s Vancouver Island, which appears in the map’s warmer yellow range, covering temperatures -12.2 to -1.1 degrees Celsius.
Because really, if plants can’t live in certain places, why should people?
Hi so there are a lot of mogai/non-cis people on here who have issues with housing and are either facing homelessness or afraid of being kicked out etc etc
We need a roommate. We’re not asking for any money, just to have someone around to help us hold the place together since we aren’t always around, we have a cat that needs to be taken care of, and in general we would love to have someone to live with honestly.
So, if you’re reading this, you can somehow get to Massachusetts, and you want to move away from people who treat you like shit, even if you’re broke, get the fuck over here because we want to give you a place to live.
That is all.
I would love this, but I’m sure there are others that need it more. So I will signal boost it.

Chickasaw Nation: The Fight to Save a Dying Native American Language
A 50,000 year-old indigenous Native American tribe that has weathered the conquistadors, numerous wars with the Europeans, the American Revolution and the Civil War is now fighting to preserve its language and culture by embracing modern technology.
There are 6,000 languages spoken in the world but linguists fear that 50% of them will become extinct within the next century. In the US, 175 Native American languages are spoken, but fewer than 20 are expected to survive the next 100 years.
The language of the Chickasaws, known as “Chikashshanompa”, is a 3,000-year-old living language that is categorised by Unesco as being “severely endangered”.
The last remaining monolingual speaker of this language, Emily Johnson Dickerson, 93, died in December. Now the tribe is scrambling to make sure that its language does not become lost.
Dwindling native speakers
The Chickasaw Nation consists of 57,000 people, including 38,000 who live in 13 counties in Oklahoma, a state designated as the Indian Territory which boasts rich oil and natural gas preserves.
"There were over 3,000 speakers of Chickasaw in the 1960s," Joshua Hinson, director of the Chickasaw Nation Language Department tells IBTimes UK.
"The last native speakers who learnt the language at home were born in the late 1940s. From that point on, with people leaving Oklahoma for other parts of the US, mandatory schooling and political pressures to be bilingual in English, the number of people dropped, and now, our youngest native speakers are in their 60s."
There are now only 65 native speakers of the Chickasaw language who are also fully bilingual in English, and only four to five confident conversational speakers who are under the age of 35.
Modern Chickasaw people in Oklahoma live in houses on land held in trust for the Chickasaw Nation by the Federal government.
They have been Christian since the Civil War, although religion co-exists with traditional native Chickasaw customs.
Some customs have died out, such as the native doctors and practice of native medicine, but others, like the role of the woman as a matriarch in the family and in government, have continued, and 60% of the community’s leaders are women.
