YOLO AT TWISTARS

20, female, Australia. Uni student wishing I'd been kept in gymnastics as a baby. First routine I ever watched was Shawn Johnson's Olympic beam routine in 2008. :)

I love travelling and am a full time TV junkie.

I Don't Know.

smoothiefreak:

I don’t know how to tell my White friends how I’m feeling this week…

I don’t know how to explain how having cops around has never made me feel safer, but rather, more likely to die that day.

That I worry that I will be shot for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

So I sent Leslie King who is the head of Media Services at USAG who’s email can be found on USAG’s website and was also given to me by my-bff-nastia and this was the email I sent as well as the response I got. I also sent the same email to Steve Penny, I don’t know if he will get back to me but I saw his email and I figured he should do something considering his track record. 

bless you :)

MAKE THEM CRY

we should all email them until they revoke or at least suspend gymnastike’s privileges.

well, people power is one of the strongest powers on this planet!

THIS IS AMAZING

I have never been so impressed with a gymnast- or anyone’s- personality, composure, and maturity, than I am with McKayla Maroney’s. People can disagree about a lot of things- her gymnastics, even fashion choices and opportunities she’s pursued- but saying that McKayla is a bad person, or attention seeking, or a brat or a bad sport, is wrong and very sad. 

If you’ve ever had any reservations about this girl, please watch this interview. I’m so impressed. 

Reblogging this just to remind everyone how fabulous she is

If you’re the kind of person that thinks McKayla (and the other victims) deserve this or brought this upon themselves, please unfollow me now

Gymnastike is TRYING TO MAKE A PROFIT OFF OF THIS. I repeat, they are trying and succeeding at making a profit. Every single time someone clicks on that post, Gymnastike is taking McKayla’s personal tragedy and making money off of it. Not to mention no one knows when these photos were taken, so she could be underage. So shoutout to gymnastike for DIRECTLY LINKING (they have since removed the direct link but still) TO POTENTIAL CHILD PORN.


IM SO HEATED. FUCK THESE PEOPLE.
