  1. There are so many things that are used to discriminate against a person, thinking that perhaps a well balanced? non criminal ( not ever caught) is in some ways a better person for the job. How to stop this? I wish I knew. I just keep fighting every day to try bring it to the open instead of just letting it pass me by saying there is nothing i can do.

  2. Reblogged this on kissmeunderthepinkblossomtree and commented:
    I saw this and immediately did not give it a second thought, this is an outrage, so unfair! I have a mental illness and going to announce it over and over again, it does NOT take away my talents and gifts and dreams, all it does is make me be a stigma to many when in fact people with some form of mental illness are exactly the same, we DESERVE the same treatment, yes we are normal and beautiful!! ❤ Miss Popette x

  3. In addition most comments are judged in the same manner and one that are too “specific” are usually deleted by the person who gets to impose sanctions against free will and free speech. Like this site administrator not approving my on topic non aggressive and highly specific comment about the topic which will now never be read or viewed. I am also very disappointed with this sites Review process. It’s not transparent nor legitimate , I was given no indication or reason to why my comment was rejected. This is nice, I can easily find a legal reason to imply my own will on this site and its content. Don’t ask questions if you are going to pick your answers…
