    Its one thing to be actively and perpetually cognizant of what Israel’s settler colonial end goal is, how that affects the conditions of Palestinians and what that means for this current ceasefire. I doubt that’s lost on anyone, especially not the people of Gaza who are…

    Actual problems with feminism

    - excluding POC, mogai, disabled and especially trans women

    - ignoring issues that do not involve the U.S

    - not realizing that feminism is for women to realize that they can do what they want and thrashing women who are feminine or wear religious attire

    Not problems of feminism

    - one teenage girl saying she hates men because 5 men catcalled her while walking home from school

    Until I started taking my antidepressants, though, I didn’t actually know that I was depressed. I thought the dark staticky corners were part of who I was. It was the same way I felt before I put on my first pair of glasses at age 14 and suddenly realized that trees weren’t green blobs but intricate filigrees of thousands of individual leaves; I hadn’t known, before, that I couldn’t see the leaves, because I didn’t realize that seeing leaves was a possibility at all. And it wasn’t until I started using tools to counterbalance my depression that I even realized there was depression there to need counterbalancing. I had no idea that not everyone felt the gravitational pull of nothingness, the ongoing, slow-as-molasses feeling of melting down into a lump of clay. I had no way of knowing that what I thought were just my ingrained bad habits — not being able to deposit checks on time, not replying to totally pleasant emails for long enough that friendships were ruined, having silent meltdowns over getting dressed in the morning, even not going to the bathroom despite really, really, really having to pee — weren’t actually my habits at all. They were the habits of depression, which whoa, holy shit, it turns out I had a raging case of.

    When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.

    1. How does your character feel about personal space? Do they tend to make others uncomfortable with how close they get, or are they the ones constantly being uncomfortable with anyone getting too close to them? Or do they not care either way?
    2. What is your…

    Casting a fire ant colony with molten aluminum

    Not saying that killing ants just because it’s cool. But hey.

    I’ve seen this post and the original video before.

    That ant colony belongs to an invasive species of fire ant (called Red Imported Fire Ants or RIFAs) which cause more harm to the local environment than good. Researchers are experimenting with extremely high temperatures as a means to dispose of invasive insect species and, just so you know, molten aluminum is VERY HOT.

    Not saying this is the best way to do it, but these folks are doing a service for the local environment and they got a beautiful piece of art for their efforts.

    It’s also good for Science because we get to see what the inside of a fire ant nest look like. That’s really cool.

    Thats pretty metal.

    It’s literally pretty metal.

    1. Straight White Guys: It's not racist. The reason why most characters are straight white guys is it's a business. They just want to do what makes the most money. No one's being racist or sexist. It's just smart business.
    2. Straight White Guys: Having a Black Captain America or Pakistani Ms. Marvel or female Thor is PANDERING. All they're trying to do is get MONEY from you. It's just a marketing ploy! This is horrible!
