SIGNAL BOOST for a doggy friend
Save Treacle -
Hello….a few days ago our baby puppy was taken to the emergency vet hospital.
Treacle has been diagnosed with a rare inner ear infection that has started to affect her brain, causing her to become very disorientated - vomiting, unable to walk properly and very very frightened.
It has now been confirmed that Treacle will be deaf. Even though the deafness is incredibly sad - the infection is being treated with anti biotics and is under some control.
However Treacle has now been diagnosed with a terrble case of Lung Worm - a parisite that eats away inside her lungs and stomach - this is what is making her sick and this is whats needs to be treated at the vets.
As the problems have now been identified the total amount estimated at the vets has decreased to £5000 -
We are so increcibly thankful and greatful for all of the support we have received so far…
We as a family will do everything will can to fund the money, but finding 5k isnt the disposable income or savings we have.
Treacle is fully insured - due to having an ear infection when she was a baby - the insurance company will not fund the full bill.
For anyone knows my brother or my family - you will know how much Treacle means to us. Please help by donating anything - no amount is too small. Please tweet/facebook this pledge so we can spread the word and get Treacle home, happy and well. Thank you. The Smiths
"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
