A General Overview of My Face When People Who Don’t Know About Reptiles Talk About Reptiles


Hey! You like reptiles right? Let me tell you a story!


Me: Yes, I’m listening

Them: So my mom’s friend’s sister once owned a boa


Them: And the friend would sleep with it every night and once they noticed it kept stretching out!


Them : So they took it to the vet and the vet told them that it was measuring them because it was planning on -


Me: No.

Them: But -image

Real life. The concept you’re thinking of is going outside.

What the hell is the science side of tumblr


Pretty much


Blackpoll Warbler (Setophaga striata)
from the Sibley Guide to Birds, 2nd edition
In the spring Blackpoll Warblers travel across the Caribbean, arriving in Florida in April and fanning out to their breeding grounds in the boreal forest from Newfoundland to Alaska. In the fall they take a very different route, from maritime Canada and New England heading almost due south over the ocean, past Bermuda and the Lesser Antilles, finally landing on the northeast coast of South America.

Otter Fact #4


When traveling on land, river otters have been observed to not just walk or run, but to also slide on their bellies. One slide can be as long as 20 feet (6 meters) and may reach speeds of up to 18 miles (29 kilometers) an hour.


so what youre saying is that you support cis people? after all theyve done to oppress you as a "queer" individual?



Yes. I do support cis people. Just in the same way that I would support anyone else. If you are born cis, you cannot help that fact. You aren’t born into hatred. Being cis isn’t wrong. At all.

Have I been oppressed by cishet individuals? Absolutely. I’ve had the shit beat out of me all through high school because of my sexuality. I’ve been beaten, abused, held down, denied employment, and raped for who I am. By cisgendered, heterosexual people. But that doesn’t change the fact that my father is cis. My mother is, too. My friends are. My classmates. My roommate. My girlfriend, for fuck’s sake, is cis.

Just because I have been wronged by some, does not give me the right to hate all. I hate some. Not, by any means, all.

I hate those that have wronged me as individuals. As specific people, who have done specific wrong to me. My rapist was cisgendered. But, so is my eight-year-old niece. 

In short, Anon, yes. I absolutely support cis persons. Why? Because being born with uncontrollable traits is not grounds for hatred, under any circumstances. 

Two of the three boys that beat the shit out of me in high school, consistently, were black. Does that give me the right to hate all black men? Absolutely not. Do you see where I’m going with this, Anon?

No matter the circumstances, hating an entire group of people based on immutable traits is wrong. When you do harbor these prejudices, you are no better than those you claim to be fighting.

Did i just read something rational on Tumblr. Doesn’t this violate some law of nature? 

Hello. I would like to take you out to dinner somewhere beautiful with lots of expensive silverware and classical music and both of us can dress like we are wealthy and then do crazy and obnoxious things that we normally wouldn't do and finally go on a walk through a park at night under stars that shine for us. And laugh a lot.

That sounds rather lovely. You should know, I’m normally not one to dress up.

Three weeks ago, my friend Joe lost his father to a long battle with cancer. Earlier this week, Joe’s mother got in a fatal car accident which resulted in her death. Joe is a senior in high school and most of his money was already going towards paying bills for his family. Unfortunately, now he has no more close family and has the responsibility of paying for the funerals for both of his parents.
I know most of you probably won’t be able to help, but I knew it couldn’t hurt to spread the word. My school and community are trying to come together to raise money to help him out with the funeral expenses.
If there is any chance you are able to make any sort of financial donation to helping him out, please contact me on my personal blog for more information. Something like a $10-20 donation could help tremendously, but please remember that even the smallest amounts (even $1 if that’s all you can do) will be greatly appreciated. 
Even if you can’t donate money, it would be wonderful if you could spread the word. Prayers and positive vibes sent his way could also be a great help. This is a tragic thing for someone at his age to be going through. Please do anything you can to help whether it’s donations, spreading the word, or prayers for him.
