MISSING WOMAN - PLEASE PASS ALONG!
Shana Carter was last seen leaving her boyfriend’s house on Arrowhead Lane in Grimsby, Ontario on December 4 around 10:30pm. Her friends and family miss her dearly, including her three-year-old son. She also has family in Halifax, Nova Scotia and might be anywhere between Ontario and the Maritime provinces.
Details: 25 years old, 5’7”, brown hair & eyes, tattoo on her wrist that says “Leroy”
If you have any information on Shana’s whereabouts, please don’t hesitate to contact the Niagara Regional Police #8 District at 1-905-688-4111, ext. 5400 or 5421.
Her family has also created a page on Facebook in hopes it’ll help them find her.


Personally, I hate the way the local media is treating her disappearance. It was a brief notice buried on the 6th page in between huge advertisements and the photo published was tiny, grainy and unclear. I have no doubt that she isn’t receiving greater coverage because she’s a woman of colour. Also, every article I’ve found online makes unnecessary mention of her “troubled youth” and “transient lifestyle” (meaning she worked in a strip club over three years ago). I hate that whenever a woman disappears who was even remotely connected with strip clubs or sex work, the media always makes a note of it. Why?

 Please reblog this, peeps, even if you don’t live in Canada. You probably have followers who do.

This message is for every girl who goes to work, school, or home alone.

If you find a child crying on the road showing his/her address & asking you to take him/her to that address, immediately take that child to the police station and ABSOLUTELY NOT to the address.

This is a new way to gang rape girls.

Please reblog this message in order to help make girls aware of this sick & twisted method of tricking girls into getting raped.

Dont be shy to reblog this message, as this 1 message can save the lives of many girls!

I’m reblogging this because it’s always good to be aware of what’s going on around you but again WHY DO WE HAVE TO BE ON GUARD?

STOP FUCKING RAPING US.

“The thing is, watching TV has its benefits. It excuses you from the responsibility of having an informed opinion about things that matter. It gives you shallow opinions or false ‘facts’ that you can easily parrot to others that watch what you watch. It rarely unsettles our carefully self-induced calm and isolation from the world.”
Seth Godin (via azspot)

You know what should be illegal? Borders. They create dangerous nationalism, jingoism and fuck with trade, travel and community.

Last year was the first year ever that more PhDs went to women than men. Now will academia eventually reflect the shifting paradigm?

According to Inside Higher Ed, a report by the Council on Graduate Schools finds that in 2008-09, women earned 50.4% of doctoral degrees — up from 44% in 2000.
