“Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That’s what it was like for me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt if you planned in falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has happened only once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.”
there are gross men who reblog underage girls’ selfies onto their porn blogs and literal fucking nazis but you’re right kids it’s radfems who need to be valiantly driven off the face of the tumblr dot com
I’ve reached the point where I just can not comprehend how one can be pro-porn and claim to be a feminist. Like, the entire industry is based around using women’s bodies to make money for men and functions by exploiting, coercing, and abusing women in order to film them in increasingly more degrading and violent scenarios for the sexual pleasure of men. You can’t deny that’s a fact, and I’m still waiting for an argument about what the point of pursuing alternatives is if they uphold this larger industry, and what the essential good of pornography is for humanity that requires its continued existence other than “it feels good when I come.”
imagine if we lived in a world where we didn’t have to utilize pornorgraphy (which always and forever will turn human subjects into physical objects to used for pleasure) to express our sexuality and instead created our own authentic sexualities that weren’t based on fetishizing, objectifying, racializing, commodifying, and dominating each other?
o wait ur boner sorry
First kakapo chick hatches since 2011
Painstaking repairs to a crushed kakapo egg have paid dividends with the arrival of the first kakapo chick since 2011.
There had been concern Lisa One would not survive after the egg was last week found crushed, on the nest.
The chick, belonging to kakapo mother Lisa, hatched on Friday evening under the anxious gaze of the Kakapo Recovery team, on Whenua Hou/Codfish Island.
Senior ranger Jo Ledington did an incredible job carefully repairing the egg with tape and glue, programme manager Deidre Vercoe Scott said.
"We only have five viable eggs on Whenua Hou and this one was the first laid. It was touch and go for a few days but with the special care and expertise of our team, the dedication has paid off," Ms Vercoe Scott said.
Lisa One is in an incubator on the island and receiving round-the-clock attention, including regular feeding, weighing and checks. It will be several weeks before it’s known which sex it is.
The other four eggs are also in incubator care and are expected to hatch at various stages during the next few weeks.
Lisa One’s arrival has increased the total population of the critically endangered New Zealand parrot to 125.
I break down into tears very VERY easily when I talk/hear about kakapos.
This makes me happy on a very deep level.
THIS is conservation. Not the bullshit that goes on in most zoos.
next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
This little one needs a home. The other cats in the littler beat her up.
She is already litter-box trained, and if she doesn’t find a home soon, her current owner will be turning her in to a shelter. The current owner is my roommate’s coworker.
So if anyone in Orlando wants an adorable kitten, please contact either me or her with your interest. If you contact me, I’ll pass it along to her.
Here’s my roomie’s blog.
If you’re not interested, please signal boost. I would MUCH rather see her in a loving home than in a shelter.
