Therefore, a...– SHUT THE FUCK UP (via marcovicci) oh noo fact by fact breakdown: “Computers function as brains”: not true “All lifeforms have brains:” not true “Having only a single thing that defines x group makes something a part of x group:” obviously false ...
been meaning to write this for a while. important question: what is an ally. answer: an ally is a close,trusted friend of someone in a marginalized group. you can’t be an ally to a movement. you have to be an ally to an individual person. donating to a gay rights group and reading a bunch of literature doesn’t make you an lbgt ally. calling out random racists doesn’t make...
Elemental Spirits and Beings
extoria: asksecularwitch: herbalialavandula: One of the first things I learned when looking up the Elements when a wee-old fluffy bunny… Was that each Element had a creature associated with it, called an “Elemental”… Or apparently some kind of really powerful Elemental nature spirit, or some shit. Yes, all Elements have beings that can be attributed to them… But really, it’s not JUST Gnomes...
stretch, kitty cat. reach up & pull down the sun. dusk is coursing along fencetops across gutters & rooftops, singing — won’t you run with her? stretch, let the sky within you drag you to your feet — feel it sizzle in your bones & flash bluewhite behind your eyes like distant stars. then lick your lips & run low to the ground so dewdrops glimmer ...
tumblr, what’s a decent book?
eternal-mia: lol @ people who say it’s contradictory to want to destroy society and also to want rights. if we didn’t have society we would all have tons of rights: the right to die whenever we damn well pleased, the right to sleep on any piece of ground we wished, the right to fight back if someone tries to detain you, etc. lots of rights. maybe doing these things would be dangerous, but we...
The tragedy of a species becoming unfit for life by over-evolving one ability is...– Peter Wessel Zapffe (via damnfinecupoftea) okay i have to point out that this isn’t what evolution means, you can’t ‘over-evolve’ it’s just the process of adapting to a given situation. individual blind mutations add up to a gradual drift toward beneficial ones....
what’s the difference between right and good? right is objective. right is a point floating in a vacuum. it just is. is it even real? does it even matter? good is subjective. you can’t just be good. you have to be good to someone or something, even if it’s yourself. good is real. we make it real.
abigrock asked: Yes, if you are experiencing symptoms of PTSD you should seek psychiatric help.
On trigger warnings
piedrabbit: baconmane: How many of you have seen Wreck It Ralph? I’m not gonna say anything specific, so as not to spoil anything serious, but there’s one scene in there where Felix makes a comment, a relatively innocuous one, to another character, and that character has a traumatic flash back and freaks the fuck out. That, my friends, my followers, is a trigger. A trigger is not getting...
at the centre & outside it is always dark & silent, though the torrent roars yet between & tears drops of still water skyward — i am here & there too — in a distant land i run through trees reaching stretching to alien lights alien stars the far side of the sky — But is the night still dark there? But are the stars still bright there? Can my voice my hand...
Anonymous asked: Remember when you had that blog where you told everyone you weren't human? That was some funny shit. But it got a little pathetic near the end.
i believe in alien gods. i believe in wrong reflections. i believe in other ways. i believe that kindness is goodness. i believe people. (or, to unpack those, i believe that other people’s gods are real and their experiences of them are real even if i haven’t experienced anything like that or even heard of their gods for that matter (xeno means ‘strange/foreign or of...
dog eats world: Hundreds of farmworkers in Spain... →
noneofthismatters: Earlier this week in Andalusia, hundreds of unemployed farmworkers broke through a fence that surrounded an estate owned by the Duke of Segorbe, and claimed it as their own. This is the latest in a series of farm occupations across… ooohhh myyy god it’s catch-22 in real life, they are literally paying people to not raise pigs
random thought re: pronouns. i think it would be kinda nice if everyone would use the non-gender-specific ‘they’ as a formal pronoun sorta like the way you use the plural ‘you’ in formal settings in some languages. that way if you don’t know the correct pronouns for someone you probably don’t know them well enough to be referring to them in a less formal way...
Outside the sun goes dark & the storm howls & cold hungry people share bread & say we are wolves, we are dragons, we are stardust & fire & the glint of dawn off dewdrops on cobwebs — they cling to scraps of self & meaning & slowly weave cloaks of being to wrap themselves in. Listen: the north wind drowns out your hollow laughter. Stranger songs will be...
[tw: ableist slurs]
swanblood: However, when we are confronted with behavior we do not understand, what was once invisible becomes visible—and unexplainable. Reactions to this experience are so common we have a word to describe those who confront us in ways we do not understand: we say they are “crazy.” We create a divisive binary: we are sane, they are insane. Creating divisive binaries is a pattern of behavior...
thoughts about stuff: Not Appropriative: white person eating chinese food white person cooking chinese food for themselves & friends & family white person really liking chinese food and cooking it a lot or going to resteraunts frequently and maybe knowing the names of some of the dishes. Grey area: white person specializing in cooking chinese food and cooking it for big family...
There’s hardly any air left but the band is still playing — beautifully, though the sound grows thin. Then the rhythm falters, & one by one they stop & fall to the ground, blue with suffocation. The audience grumbles.
Gamzee didn’t KILL nepeta
alienaisha: princessglados: nepetaisgamzee: I repeat Gamzee didn’t KILL Nepeta. Dirk isn’t the only hero of heart you know… Purrhaps you may have underestimated the Rogue of Heart. Purrhaps you may have only applied the fact The Heart aspect = Soul to Dirk. Didn’t anyone ever tell you not to trust cats or cheaters (AKA rogues). She used her fucking heart powers people. She used her...
purlsbeforewine: redrupee: !! DO NOT SUPPORT SAD PICTURES FOR CHILDREN !! The creator recently admitted that he is faking his depression for money. He also goes on to accuse the entire disorder of being a “socially enforced” construct that doesn’t medically exist. (Pointedly he only brings this up after he gained nearly $44,000 more than he needed in order to get his project off the...

radioheadofficial: let me tell you what i think about feminism. feminism does not fight only for women. it fights for your average man, too, because patriarchy and all the bullshit that comes with it negatively affects the lives of both men and women. (especially women.) patriarchy simplifies men as being creatures incapable of true intellectual thought and compassion, it creates this image of...
got a bit further in City of Bones, on chapter 17 i think? so far the plot is pretty good. they’re trying to figure out what’s up with clary’s missing memories which is a bit old hat but works fine, and then the one Nice Guy (simon) got turned into a rat and kidnapped by vampires and they went after him and got caught up in a vampire/werewolf melee and escaped on a...
city of bones turned out to be a weird graveyard populated by creepy eyeless monks. highly underwhelming. said eyeless monks are okay i guess but i think they’re trying to hard to be creepy.
timaeustestified: basically thank god for the people that reply/reblog/like my shit consistently. you prevent me from feeling like i’m floating in space floating in space is a nice feeling sometimes though i think.
reading the first bit of the mortal instruments series mostly because i wanna remind myself how this sorta story fits together. impression so far: all the young male characters are obnoxious except for like one who’s spoken like five times. the protagonist apologized for snapping at one of them at one point and it just drew attention to the fact that he’s been a stuck-up asshole...
