I think about pokemon in non-battle situations a lot. Like pokemon who have been trained/raised to be helpers and assistants than to be battle partners.

Pokemon visiting hospitals to cheer patients up like dogs and cats do. Or ones that help kids learn to read, speak, swim, go through therapy?! Even pokemon who’s abilities help owners with specific disabilities?!

I love thinking of pokemon outside of battle situations.

Matthew Durham, 19, allegedly confessed to sexually assaulting several children at an orphanage in Kenya, police said. (Credit: KFOR)

An Edmond teenager faces a possible life in prison sentence after authorities say they learned about shocking crimes he allegedly committed on an African mission trip.

The suspect was volunteering at a Kenyan children’s home when he allegedly raped and molested a number of young children.

According to court records, 19-year-old Matthew Durham confessed to raping several young girls, forcing some boys to perform oral sex on him and even making other kids watch.

“This is a young man in our community that made choices to exploit children in an orphanage,” said United States Attorney Sanford Coats. “It’s a true tragedy all the way around.”

The 19-year-old suspect traveled overseas with a group called Upendo.

Upendo is an organization that assists neglected Kenyan kids by providing food, housing, clothes and religion.

While Durham volunteered to travel overseas several times over the last two years, on his last visit, the criminal complaint alleges, “Durham requested to stay at the children’s home in an ‘overflow bunk’ rather than at an offsite facility.”

During that visit, several alleged victims claimed Durham “often touched them in a sexual manner or told them to touch themselves while he watched.”

Once confronted, Durham allegedly came clean.

“A caretaker at the orphanage noticed something wasn’t right and confronted Mr. Durham. He admitted to some of the acts,” said Coats.

The affidavit continues, “The victims are believed to be both boys and girls between the ages of four and nine, at least one of whom is HIV positive.”

Prosecutors say while the alleged sex crimes were committed overseas, Durham can be held accountable for the crimes in Oklahoma.

Durham is being held without bond.

#LET ME TELL SOMETHING. DIVERSITY IS NOT JUST ABOUT HAVING DIFFERENT SKIN COLORS, OKAY? IT’S ABOUT HAVING ACTUAL DIFFERENT PEOPLE. CHARACTERS THAT ARE BELIEVABLE AND DIFFERENT AND REAL. I’M SO TIRED OF SEEING MOVIES, ANIMATED OR LIVE ACTION, HAVING FEMALE CHARACTERS WITH THE SAME FACE AND EXPRESSIONS AND BODY LANGUAGE WHO BARELY EXPRESS THEIR SEXUALITY OR HAVE NORMAL, NATURAL REACTIONS AND INTERACTIONS AND EXPRESSIONS THAT MATCH THEIR CHARACTERS WHEN AROUND THEIR LOVED ONES. LOOK AT THESE THREE. THEY ARE ALL STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS, BUT HOW DIFFERENTLY THEY ACT AROUND THE MEN THEY LOVE. LOOK AT THEIR EXPRESSION WHEN PLEASED OR EXCITED. JUST LOOK AT THESE THREE. LOOK HOW DIFFERENT THEY ARE. HOW REAL. HOW BELIEVABLE. HOW BEAUTIFUL. 

#httyd2 #has some really good female characterswho stand alone and not in the shadow of a male counter part #ruffnut is probably more developed than her twin brother #astrid doesn’t need hiccup to save her she can fight all by herself and she is the one to comfort and give him advice #and valka is a fearless dragon warrior but also a loving mother who wants her son to forgive her and to approve of her and understand her choices

But still… It would be nice to have them be different skin colors tho….

White people: “LOOK AT ALL THIS DIVERSITY ALL THE LADIES HAVE A PERSONALITY aND ALSO DIFFERENT HAIR COLORS I LOVE DIVERSITY WHO NEEDS POC FOR DIVERSITY”

yes, you obviously make 100% perfect sense because if you think even a little about the place and time of the movie there should obviously be more poc. it’s not like they are viking, which are norse, which haha, all had fairer skin and hair. but nononono, theres no poc because they are racist, or something. obviously.

Yes I think poc need to represented but where its logical but throwing a random poc in the middle of this movie would have been illogical and horribly inaccurate. also dont even think about pointing out how there are dragons and they are oh so illogical themselves. its a movie about dragons, of course there are going to be dragons and if this was pretty much any other place at any other time period then yes, please, add poc, make the star a poc, it would be fucking fantastic!

honestly, please, think with a small bit of logic. I understand why you want them in the movie, in all movies actually, but in all reality, its a norse movie, set long ago, there were just no poc around in that time. yes, they really were all fair skinned people. So, sorry there were going for historical accuracy (or as much as there can be in a movie about dragon) and didn’t add any poc.

u believe in dragons but not POC ok

"diversity is not just about skin color ok" well i literally did not read anything after that i guess only white women’s features can be shown and not poc but ok
