This is how many children that died in their Hunger Games, without even being mentioned throughout the three books. All these children were under 18. All these children had parents. All these parents’ hearts sank to their knees during their child’s reaping. All these parents saw their terrified child off at the train station. All these parents heard the sound that signified their child’s death. All these parents received their cold, dead child in a wooden box. All these parents’ lives ended there. All these parents could say or do nothing. All these parents were merely thanked that they gave up their child. Thanked.
And the media focuses on the love triangle.

in short, fuck tumblr’s attitudes about “grades don’t matter” and “i’m offended because someone is breathing” and “it’s cool to be apathetic and hate everything” because the world doesn’t fucking cater to you guys, you pretentious assholes who expect everything in life to be sugar coated to y’all and you’re gonna have to grow up sometime

"In 31 states, rapists are allowed to sue victims they’ve impregnated for custody rights. There is clearly something wrong with a society that allows this to happen; our awareness of rape is shockingly small, as even our statistics can’t be trusted due to our inability to define rape as exactly what it is. According to the Bureau of Justice, the estimate of women raped in one year in the United States is approximately 300,000; however, according to the Centers for Disease Control, the estimate is 1.3 million.
We need to stop ignoring rape in the United States, and a way to start is by creating laws that bring only justice to the victims and treat rapists just as they are; criminals. When rapists can receive custody rights, they’re given the opportunity to abuse their victims even further.”
