Amazing Pokemon fusions
These are just some of the many ways members of the LGBT community identify themselves in a beautiful photo series from San Francisco-based photographer Sarah Deragon.
Deragon’s “The Identity Project” has taken her around the country as she “seeks to explore the labels we choose to identify with when defining our gender and sexuality.” Her portraits show the amazing diversity and vibance of a queer community that for too long has been defined by outsiders.
why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.
First of all, I’d like to see a source for that because I don’t buy it and none of the entries on dictionary.com that talk about pussy’s use as an insult being in any way tied to the word pusillanimous (also, fun fact, the root puss- in pussy is not the same root as the pusill- in pusillanimous, and the latter is, again, not mentioned in any of the etymologies related to pussy).
Secondly, even if that is the original etymology of the current slang term, which I don’t buy, but assuming it were, ask anyone who uses pussy as an insult why it’s an insult. They sure as hell aren’t going to tell you that it’s the shortened form of pusillanimous. The point is that the usage of pussy in language equates femaleness with weakness.
Anke designed an adorable teapot cozy that accentuates the teapot’s resemblance to a snail’s shell and adds a pair of eye stalks to complete the transformation. They really do look like cute snails, but with the added bonus that these charming mollusks won’t eat your garden plants.
So I learned from my friend that coconut water can be used as an emergency blood transfusion, and of course my first thought was “So, can a vampire drink coconut water?”
and of course we had this idea of these tropical vampires being horrified when these old world vampires come and are still drinking blood like some sort of monster.
my two-week long flash game project for animation is finished and up on my deviantart! play it here!
3 gender choices— male, female, and nonbinary! i tried to make the nonbinary option as gender-neutral as possible, so it could go towards either gender, be a combination of both, or neither depending on the clothing choices!
3 skin tones— because POC (like myself) are people too and are really cool! so that should be an option!
2 body types— one on the chubbier side and one on the skinnier side- because not everyone has the same body types!
even if you can’t play it, please reblog so others can check it out!
this is so cute I’m dying
guys just imagine
a punk-rock concert takes places on a beach and a group of mermaids swim to the surface, wondering what that noise is because it’s the most incredible thing they’ve ever heard
and see land-walkers wearing peculiar outfits and hair in spikes and these mermaids are absolutely in love
so they start their own brand of punk culture with squid ink tattoos, seaweed tartan, fish-hook earrings and pierced tails
and they scavenge for thrown out music memorabilia and submerged leather jackets (their prized treasure is a waterproof radio they found on the beach)
and the real problem is trying to find a way to spike their hair, so for the moment they just use seashells and continue being hella cool
I love pirates because they have no concept on albeism. oh you have no leg? here have a peg leg. no hand?? well guess we gotta put a hook on that, give those sons of bitches a surprise. Blind in one eye, put an eyepatch on no one fucking cares, youre deaf??? go man the canons you glorious bastard.They dont care if youre disabled bcus as long as you can fuck shit up they literally dont fucking care.
? They murdered people? Many people? And took people as slaves? That’s like saying “Well you may have stabbed several civilians to death, but at least you didn’t say anything anti-Semitic while you were at it, so I guess you can’t be that bad.” There are bad things to be and do that don’t end in -ist? And murdering slaver is near the top of that list?
Yes. But at the same time, I feel there is a point here.
Something along the lines of “if the murdering slavers could grasp this basic human decency, why the fuck are you having so much trouble with it?”
Scientists can now image molecules with sufficient resolution to observe covalent bonds being formed.
As a Ph.D. chemist, all I can say is HOLY SHIT THAT’S AMAZING.
