U.S. Democrats plan to give Israel an addition $225 million for military spending. The same bill also cuts $1 billion of emergency funds meant to deal with the 50,000 undocumented child migrants held in crowded and unsanitary border facilities.
Israel already received $504 million for the joint U.S.-Israel Missle Defense Program for the Fiscal Year of 2014. That is not including the $3.1 Billion the Obama Administration spent on Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Israel for the Fiscal Year 2014.

hey eri do you support how ableist solace was yesterday they literally said that otherkin need to "need to really think about their life and get help" and then cast doubt on disassociative disorders and ppl who suffer from them, they also implied that young people are faking or will grow out of mental disorders, so basically is this entire blog despicable or only part of it

She was talking about people who identified as anime characters, and I was hoping she would talk about it a bit more because I really don’t know enough about that disorder to make judgments about it. This is what solace said:

There are also a lot of comments somewhat similar to this: 

theladyems said: Diagnosed DID (Dis-associative Identity Disorder) is extremely hard to treat and extremely rare. Their ‘alters’ might have a different cultural background but it’s unlikely since DID is a fragmented/compartmentalized psyche to deal with trauma

I’m not sure about what solace said, I don’t know very much at all about DID or fictionkin, there’s not really anything I can say except that I doubt everything solace said was true, but I also doubt that every person that identifies as an anime character is not just a weeaboo with a warped view of Japan and anime.

Solace here. I refuse to enable, in any way shape or form, white people who go around saying they’re Naruto reincarnated. I don’t care if they’re mentally disabled or just young and confused or both. Plenty of people with mental disabilities aren’t racist weeaboos, just like plenty of people who are young and confused aren’t racist weeaboos. As far as I’m concerned using DID as an excuse for weeabooism is about as tenable as using bone cancer as an excuse for weeabooism. 

Like I mentioned before, other mods may very well have different opinions, but I’m not interested in changing mine, and I still think it’s horribly ableist to use any condition/identity as a “get out of racism free” card. 

Eri: I’m with solace on that
