TSG.tv will be hosting our 34th gaming marathon to raise money for Rocking H Ranch. We will be live streaming as we play through the Sonic franchise for 72 hours straight, starting at 6pm on Friday December 12th and ending on Friday December 15th at 6pm. You can watch and chat with the team and other viewers on www.TSG.tv or from our twitch page www.twitch.tv/thespeedgamers . Throughout our 6 year history we have raised approximately $485,000 for various causes. We hope to hit the $500,000 milestone during our Sonic event.

Rocking H Ranch provides money for several charities: Backpacks for Kids, Paws for Reflection Ranch, the Tara Sawyer Foundation, and Trent's Retreat Foundation. The charities provide money for: starving children; equine and animal-assisted therapies; abused, abandoned, and neglected children in impoverished nations; and children with pedantic cancer, respectively. We will not be taking a single cent of donations for ourselves; 100% of the proceeds go directly toward Rocking H Ranch.

For more information on the charities, please go to www.rockingh.net/Rocking_H_Ran…

Any promotion would be much appreciated! Any donations are much appreciated! Help out however you can! ☻
Depression isn't always sadness.
Depression is apathy. Depression is a world where your friends are so
frustrated
with trying to help you, that they stop.
Depression is being chained within reach of a key, and
having no desire to unlock yourself.

Hopelessness isn't always a world with no solutions.
Hopelessness is surrender. Hopelessness is a world with solutions
and zero drive
to fix the problems.
Hopelessness is being convinced you're worthless so often
That you believe it.
Hopelessness is being tied within reach of a knife, and using
that knife to hamstring yourself.

"I'm okay." Isn't always okay.
"I'm okay." Is avoiding an argument.
"I'm okay." Is pushing away those trying to help
because you can't handle
putting them through the same thing
again.
"I'm okay." Is the delusion of saving your friends
by hurting yourself.

Defeat is surrender.
Defeat is when the heartless world
breaks you down so badly
that you freeze to death in the world's coldness.
The icy claws of a planet that has no reason to care
takes the time to pull you into
a tomb of silence.
I only met you once prior, to my memory.

I live in a world where the faces in the background
frequently fade before features become apparent.

My days are walking on heavily cracked glass with lead boots.

My heart weighs heavy with regret for my decisions that seemed like
good ideas:

College, a vehicle, applying for this horrible life sentence of a job.

My muscles weigh heavy with the exhaustion of
pulling more than my own weight.
Far more.

My eyes weigh heavy with nights subpar sleep from anxiety
for my fear of paying loans and ineffective search of happiness.

My mind drifts to the existential.
Who will remember me, save my family--likely ending
with me
if my luck for romance continues as-is.

Then you. Yesterday I gave you six cents to pay for your groceries.
So common an action
I don't even recall
what you purchased.

You told me you'd pay me back, but I declined that day, as I do.
Yet, today, here you are. You remembered me, if even for just a day.
For a day, I was something to someone I had barely met.
For a day, I was a person worth remembering.
For a day, I was someone.

For that brief second, my heart lifted to the occasion. My day was made.
To the man who returned my six cents.
Thank you, you meant more to me
in that minute
than you can even imagine.

   So, onto the idea of rape culture. Rape should not be normalized in society. Rape is a terrible thing. No matter what you dress, you are not asking to be raped. People who say that someone "deserved" rape because of anything are horrible, misguided individuals. Rape is an action used to take power and security away from someone. The victim is being stripped of their most intimate of feelings, and being thrown into a situation where an activity usually providing pleasure is used specifically to bring pain, emotionally and physically.
    There are things that really do happen because of rape culture. Spouses can be raped by their spouses. It's still rape. However, this wasn't anything addressed until the 1970s. Even now, though, it's met with disbelief that it is even a crime. Any time no is said, no means no. I didn't even realize until recently that people thought otherwise, but it's a thing, and it's sad. People respond with "why wouldn't you have sex with your spouse?" Even though there are plenty of reasons, even as simple as not being in the mood. I don't deny that rape culture exists in some ways, but it's the terminology bastardization that is the huge issue.
    There is nothing normal about rape. Rape is a horrible action and should be punished. Molestation should be punished. Sexual assault of any time is a punishable offense. People, in general, need to make it clear to victims that it is okay to discuss things and bring the assailant to justice. Most people want justice, but they are pressured by a part of society that is more concerned about image.
    What makes everything worse is when people use rape culture in convoluted situations. Saying you look nice in certain clothes is not rape culture. Criticizing hyperbolic ramblings about feminism does not make that person a rape apologist. Rape is a crime. It is a serious thing, and the way it is slung around so lazily and ignorantly causes more problems for actual victims than anything else.
    Men and women alike are harmed by this distortion of the terms. Any and all victims of rape are less likely to be taken seriously when the public can't take the topic seriously. I'm not talking about rape jokes and things like that. I'm talking about people who bastardize the terminology in order to play the victim card.
    Referring to things that are not rape as rape is insulting and counterproductive. It's up there with people who fake rape to defame people, or to gain forms of attention. These ideas all go against the whole concept of justice. They bastardize it. They create this weakened image of a very serious concept. Rape is horrible. Rape is one of the top, most extreme, heinous things one can do. By crying victim to something that you are not, you distort the idea. Those victims who are told they're "looking for attention?" It's because people use those things to get attention. It didn't come from nowhere. People do this, and it has to stop.
    This whole thing hurts women, though, too. Women victims are also going to face, as a consequence, this weakened image of rape. This all comes about because by alienating both men and women (there are women who find this special snowflake situation is beyond out of hand, too,) from the messages sent, these people make the whole idea less serious.
    People who cry rape online, people who cry bullying and harassment over criticism, people who treat this like a get out of criticism free card defecate all over real victims in the process. Hiding behind a veil on the internet, claiming things to be special (this extends to fake self harm victims, false mental disorders, and many, many other topics) is horribly harmful to real victims who have really suffered unimaginably horrible experiences is wrong.
   
Bastardizing Rape - Not Surprised...

I like to try out various types of art. If you want to use full sized versions of any of my stuff for a project, just contact me by a note or a comment on the item and let me know! :heart:

I do lots of favoriting and am very passionate about art and music. Feel free to message me and chat! :aww:

DO NOT EXPECT LLAMAS FOR LLAMAS! Since I favorite and watch pretty easily, I want my llamas to be meaningful gifts I give to people who do something really awesome or helpful! If you receive a llama from me, you've really earned it! :la:

I REALLY want to thank everyone for favoriting my work... The volume is to the point, now, when I do my mass uploads that I can't thank everyone without getting marked for spam. As such, I can't thank you all independently now :(!

If you have favorited anything, from here on out, I REALLY thank you, and if there were no spam cap, I'd still probably dig through everything and thank you all. I may still try, but if you don't receive a message, I'm not being rude, I just can't thank everyone in any reasonable way! :noes:

My watchers are awesome! My favoriters are great! I just can't do it! I got 9 pages of favorites today (6/30/2012)! Definitely not complaining, but that'd be like, a day's worth of thank yous, since it's hard to tell when I can comment again.

I sincerely appreciate any and all support, and if I could hug you all, I would! :heart:

So, just because I don't thank you doesn't mean I don't 100% appreciate you doing what you have done for me. You don't have to, and the fact that you do is wonderful!

TL;DR: Can't feasibly thank all the people who favorite my work on your pages, so if you favorite my work, thank you thank you thank you! :hug: :huggle: :iconaawplz:
