Olivia but Panda works best. An "artist" and an "activist" who finds delight in psychology, a bit of philosophy and social awareness with a side of politics. I'm a young, queer, liberal, anti-racist womanist/feminist and athiest that is addicted to alliteration. And a whole mess of other things. I don't always follow back but I appreciate all my followers. I write what I feel, so read those tags. Exaggeration may be included. Deal with it.

"I am definitely a feminist. I’m fucking disgusted by the way women are still treated. It’s 1993 and some people still think we’re in the 1950’s. We need to make more progress. There needs to be more female musicians, more female artists, more female writers. Everything is dominated by fucking males, and I’m sick of it!"
Yet police in riot gear are attacking crowds of UNARMED pro-democracy student protesters and protesters from the Occupy Central movement (a civil disobedience movement aimed at achieving universal suffrage occurring in Hong Kong). At least NOW TV, BBC NEWS, and APPLE DAILY have confirmed that pepper spray and rubber bullets are being fired at demonstrators and there is tear gas being launched into crowds and it’s spreading INSIDE the Central MTR station.
Judging from all the photos and Apple Daily news reports I’ve seen, there are police stationed at Lippo Center, outside Lan Kwai, and Jordan + Tung Chung MTR stations look entirely closed off to everyone but the police. There are protesting crowds in Causeway, in Mong Kok on Argyle Street, in the HKAPA and Gloucester Road + Nathan Road are FILLED with protesters.
Hong Kong is no longer safe. Central has been paralyzed.
There’s a live feed of everything that’s happening here.
This is your Sunday evening reminder that you can handle whatever this week throws at you. Even if school, work or general life isn’t okay, you’ll get through it because you are damn strong and amazing.
