Stop hating on pan people, stop hating on aromantic people, asexual people, demisexual people

Stop hating on agender, bigender, genderfluid, nonbinary people

Do you think conservative parents/people will approve of them anymore than gay/lesbian/bi/trans people? No, because they don’t understand all the “””made up sexualities and genders”””. They don’t understand your feelings and it’s just awful

Please don’t forget these people suffer as well

I think this is necessary to post. I see a lot of people “saving” bunnies.

“*Bunnies are one of the most frequently “kidnapped” mammal species.
*Mothers dig a very shallow nest in the ground that is easily uncovered when mowing or raking the yard. If you find a rabbit nest-leave it alone!!
*Mother rabbits only return to the nest two or three times a day, usually before dawn and right after dusk. 
*To determine if they are orphaned, either place a string across the nest in a tic-tac-toe shape or circle the nest with flour. Check the nest the next day. If the string or flour is disturbed, the mother has returned. If not, take the bunnies to a rehabilitator.
* A bunny that is bright eyed and 4-5 inches long is fully independent and does NOT need to be rescued!
*If you find a bunny that does need to be rescued, put it in a dark, quiet location. Bunnies are a prey species and while they may look calm, they are actually very, very scared!”

Never knew this, keeping this for reference

As a student of Veterinary Medicine I can completely confirm this! Do NOT take them out of their nest unless you’re 100% sure that the mother did not come back for them after at least one day!

It’s that time of year again!






am i the only person not affected by generalized positivity… like post it notes in bathrooms that say ‘you’re beautiful’ or posts that are like ‘smile! you are a beautiful sunshine flower!’ i’m just like … okay…

I just heard a psychologist (Guy Winch) say that the people that positive affirmations help most are actually the people who have high or at least normal self-esteem. They really do cheer those people up!

But for the rest of us they run so counter to our general worldview (we’re fundamentally bad and deserve nothing) that our brain rejects them immediately as lies and uses that moment to remind us of how terrible and abnormal we actually are.

What usually works for people with low self-esteem is stuff like writing out a list of very specific things we know we’re good at, and revisiting it every day to write a paragraph elaborating on one of those things (i.e. “I’m a compassionate person and here are five examples”) to try to set our brain on a different track long term.

That makes so much sense.

the psychology behind the “ok that sounds fake but ok” meme 

Holy crap









Ok so I was looking for historical slang terms for penis (gotta be era-accurate when writing vintage dick jokes) and I came across….something


some linguist compiled a literal timeline of genitalia slang–a cock compendium, if you will–that dates back all the way to the fucking 13th CENTURY. This motherfucker tracked the evolution of erection etymology through 800+ years, because if he doesn’t do it, who else will? Thank you for your service, Johnathon Green.

Some of my favorites include:

  • Shaft of Delight (1700s)
  • Womb Sweeper (1980s)
  • Master John Goodfellow (1890s)
  • Nimble-Wimble (1650s)
  • Corporal Love (1930s)
  • Staff of Life (1880s)
  • Spindle (1530s)
  • As good as ever twanged (1670s)
  • Gaying Instrument (1810s)
  • Beef Torpedo (1980s)

and last but not least, the first recorded use of the word Schlong, which was in 1865 CE. Tag yourself, I’m Nimble Wimble 

And are the lovely ladies feeling left out? not to worry! Johnathon’s got you covered, gals, because he also made one for vaginas. Highlights:

  • Mrs. Fubb’s Parlor (1820s)
  • Poontang (1950s)
  • Spunk Box (1720s)
  • Ringerangroo (1930s)
  • Ineffable (1890s)
  • Itching Jenny (1890s)
  • Carnal Mantrap (1890s - a busy decade apparently)
  • Bookbinder’s Wife (1760s)
  • Rough Malkin (1530s)
  • Socket (1460s)

and a personal favorite, crinkum-crankum, circa approximately 1670.


this alone has justified the internet

This is unfortunately not complete, as he used written documents. Imagine the variations. Humans have never named anything so much as they have their genitals.

waiiiiiiiit a second… sleeping beauty pricked her finger on a spindle…were they really talking about dick??

No, but it does open itself up for retellings, eh @kristina-meister



“That’s just how I am lol” NAH. That’s a character flaw. Work on it. Fix it. Grow.

thank you, Russian Spy Agent

free software alternatives


i never stop talking about some of these so i might as well banish them to a single post! you might know about a lot of them already, but feel free to look anyway

freeware can be a great opportunity to get a feel for something and learn a new skill. and in some cases, the free versions are almost as powerful, so you might find that you saved a lot of money but made work that was just about equal to what you might have done with paid software!




the issue with straight authors writing characters that portray behaviours or thoughts of internalised homophobia is that the straight author will never know how it is to battle with internalised homophobia–of how society makes you hate how you love people of the same gender as you, and how that manifests into a deep self hatred and a hatred of other lgbt people, especially if they dont conform to what society deems acceptable–and thus their self hating gay characters are just vessels for the straight authors’ (subconscious) homophobia to be shown in a “progressive” way 

a straight author writing about how a gay/bi male character “is not like those other flamboyant gay dudes who, shudder, wears MAKE UP!” or how a lesbian/bi female character “isn’t like those man hating lesbians who don’t shave and sit with their legs apart” just tells me that the straight author hates fem gay men and butch lesbians. 

it doesn’t pose as a thought provoking view of the reality of so many lgbt people who battle with internalised homophobia, because the straight author has never had to deal with these specific self-hating thoughts; never have straight people needed to hate gay people so as to keep themselves alive in our homophobic society. 

a straight person writing about a character hating on gnc lgbt people just strengthens the societal hate of gnc people. they want to have lgbt characters in their books, and they want to pretend they’re progressive with their characters, but they refuse to actually write us, us who break gender roles and gender presentation and do so because we love people of our own gender. 

they just write what they know: homophobic “straight” characters who conform to strict masculine or feminine gender roles, but they just happen to like someone of the same gender as them. well congrats, straight author, you’ve managed to fool your straight editor that you actually care about lgbt people 

every lgbt person knows another lgbt person who think they’re “not like those other ones”, who think they’re better than us who derive from gender expectations to navigate within the lgbt community as well as outside of it. these people exist! and it’s really sad that they do, because they obviously harbour so much self-hate for their attraction or gender! 

and i do think characters based on these experiences should exist. i do not, however, think a cishet person should ever even try to do so. not only do they not know how this feels (because most of us lgbt people has felt like this at one point or another), but they can never really understand that this doesn’t actually stem from the person being homophobic, but from hating themselves due to what our homophobic society tells them they should hate. 

a gay author could very well make a character suffer from internalised homophobia, and as painful as it would be to read it, they wouldn’t alienate their lgbt readers the same way straight authors do when they create a character who hate fem gay men and butch lesbians “because i’m a normal person who just happens to be homosexual”

“Not right now Roomba, Mr. Fluffles and I are having a word”

dear food bloggers








if you mention health in your recipe, i will assume the recipe is Austerity Food and does not taste very good. i will not give the recipe a chance. i will not try it. there are fifty thousand other search results. i will continue searching until i find a recipe that appears to be written with the intent of making food that tastes as good as possible, and also doesn’t expect me to do something like scramble three eggs in a single teaspoon of flavorless oil.

by the way, a piece of life advice: a generous splash of olive oil will keep the eggs from sticking to the pan (i know you burnt three or four batches before you got that pretty picture), taste really good (FAT IS FLAVOR say all the real chefs), is good for your heart (yes really), and if you’re on a diet (which you shouldn’t be) you can burn off that many calories by folding a basket of laundry. it’s not like you shanked an orphan. please calm the fuck down.

It takes far more than that to burn a “generous” amount of olive oil. While it may not be terrible for you, it’s still an increase in caloric intake.

i can’t believe i was reblogged by a blog with the tagline ‘anti fat acceptance, obesity kills’. i am honestly furious, and that’s hard to do on the internet these days.

take your pro-eating-disorder, anti-feminist, anti-health bullshit far away from my posts. SHAME KILLS.

fatphobia is the reason I didn’t know until Jesse started posting about it that most of my weight gain is from not getting ENOUGH calories.

fuck blogs like the one up there. fuck em.

since adding ~200 calories a day to my food intake i have had more energy, had an easier time working out, done longer and more productive workouts, and in 2 weeks i have gained noticeable muscle tone. not from trying to live on chia seeds and kale, but from eating regular food like egg and toast for breakfast, pbj and fruit for lunch, chicken and rice for supper, and adding a high-protein snack like yogurt and red bean jam or cheese and nuts.

diet culture is just purity theater. calorie counting is cargo cult medicine. your body wants to be active and healthy, stop punishing it and start cooperating with it.

i’m gonna bring this back. if you’re struggling with your weight, try ADDING a small snack to your daily intake. your body is probably in famine mode and conserving energy, storing every spare calorie as fat under the assumption that you’re experiencing famine conditions and the food is running out.

repeat: dieting convinces your body there’s a famine.

your body responds by hoarding calories.

this is an evolved survival trait.

you will be fat and fatigued because your metabolism is preparing for weeks or months with no food at all.

stop starving yourself. it’s not working.

The diet and fitness health industries are basically a two-man con. Diet says: you’re so fat, cut your calories. Fitness says: you’re so out of shape, you need to exercise more. So you cut your daily caloric intake to 1500, and you go to the gym, and you can barely go fifteen minutes before your heart is pounding and you can’t catch your breath and you’re about to fall off your treadmill, what is wrong with you? How do you fix this?

Diet says: You’re so fat! Cut calories!

Fitness says: You’re so out of shape! Exercise more!

You need energy to exercise. The energy content of food is measured in calories.

It’s a brilliant way to part people from their money, and also slowly suck all the vitality out of them. Like, seriously. The average adult human burns over a calorie a minute just paying the metabolic rent on having a warm-blooded body. There are 1440 minutes in a day. If you want to get fit, that’s a great goal, but don’t do it while cutting your caloric intake down to starvation levels. Calories are literally energy. You need energy to exercise. You need energy to live.




If a Jew does good things and is well-liked, odds are a lot of people won’t know that they’re Jewish.

If a Jew is hated and and does bad things, everyone will know they’re Jewish.

“If my theory of relativity is proven successful, Germany will claim me as a German and France will declare me a citizen of the world. Should my theory prove untrue, France will say that I am a German, and Germany will declare that I am a Jew.” - Albert Einstein 

This is the reason why people have broken their spines bending backward trying to prove that Hitler’s grandfather might’ve been Jewish, yet Gentile feminists use Lise Meitner not getting credit for discovering nuclear fission as an example of sexism in STEM when she was a Jewish-born woman living in Germany at the time of the Nuremberg laws.
