karmaschild: (Planned Parenthood)
Originally posted by [ profile] theljstaff at Help Us Support Planned Parenthood

Join us in standing up for reproductive health and education. Planned Parenthood, the organization that delivers reproductive health care, sex education and information to millions of people worldwide, has come under fire in the U.S. lately, with many politicians on both state and federal level seeking to end funding (and in a few cases succeeding).

During the month of May, you can send a specially designed Planned Parenthood vgift to your friends to help support this cause. (And if you need someone to send it to, [ profile] frank is always happy to receive gifts!) There are three variations ($1, $5 and $10) for you to choose from, but they'd all look good on your profile when your friends know that you stand by something so important.


Thank you all for your help in our support for Planned Parenthood. This promotion ends June 1, 2012; LiveJournal is not affiliated with Parent Parenthood. For more information about Planned Parenthood, please visit:

NOTE: It was asked in the comments what percentage of the donation goes to PP and the LJ Staff confirmed that the whole amount does. (Seriously, don't wade into the comments if you don't have to. They're absurd.)

Man, I picked exactly the wrong night to tune into [ profile] spn_party for the episode watch post. For one thing, I knew it was going to be rocky sailing, since it was an episode with Castiel in it. Regardless of what the mods of that comm say, the community is very pro-Castiel and it makes being a non-fan very difficult. Especially if you happen to also be a fan of Dean Winchester, who is fandom's current whipping boy.

Marvel with me at the incredible magnitude of assholishness required to bring the Dean bashing to me when I mentioned I was uncomfortable with it. Fortunately, there were a few nice people there, but I'm still pretty well put off that comm. Ideas are in the works to find an alternative, because I am seriously not putting myself through that again.

Anyway, about the episode... I honestly can't tell you much of what happened. That's because nothing much did happen. There was a new prophet... a terribly stereotypical Asian kid who was a cellist, top of his class, math nerd, cared only about school. You know what I'm talking about. There were more angels. Can I just say I'm sick of angels? Almost as sick as I am of Leviathans. Season 8 cannot come soon enough, I swear. I am officially over Season 7.

Meg was the highlight for me. I've been largely indifferent to her character for most of the show's run, but tonight made me appreciate her so much more. She was genuinely funny and consistent with the characterization she's had all along. Meg is out for Meg and whoever is helpful to her goals is okay and whoever is not is dead. I like that about her. She's up front about things.

I might have more thoughts on the episode after a rewatching. I was honestly too busy being horrified at the community post during most of it, so I probably missed some important bits.
