|teacher:||where is your homework|
This is my wonderful beautiful angel of a friend Emily. Two years ago she had a terrible accident that placed her in a wheelchair. There is hope for her to walk again, but the financial burden has become too heavy for her (she is 22) to bear. Please help us get this sweet girl back on her feet. Every dollar counts and please share as much as possible too. Love and thanks to you all
"Because when I was a kid and going to punk rock shows, there weren’t any girls on stage playing instruments that weren’t there as a pretty prop. Girls that weren’t afraid to get their make-up smeared and look sweaty.. To be fearless and make the stage their own. It’s what gets me out of bed in the morning. To suddenly have that all taken away from me, and become ‘the wife of’, is without a doubt the most disappointing and fucking heartbreaking thing that could ever happen, because it’s exactly the opposite of what I stand for. It’s not only detrimental to me as a person, but the message that this fucking conveys to the girls that come to see us play is ‘You can work your ass off for ten years and you can be amazing, but at the end of the day you will simply be who you’re married to. Is this nineteen-fucking-fifty-three?"
