Bra-shunning: (v.) 1) The refusal to wear a brassiere because I’m just going to the fucking market so let’s just throw on this light sweater here so it doesn’t draw focus goddammit why is it so hot today. 2) A slothful action less political than bra burning.

"The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections."

I feel like it’s safe to say that it doesn’t matter which channel you go through to help the people in need, as long as the organization is legit.
