Just your daily reminders:
- Racists are a problem
- White people are not
- Homophobes are a problem
- Straight people are not
- Transphobes are a problem
- Cis people are not
- Sexists are a problem
- Men are not
And most importantly,
- Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole
Just your daily reminders:
- Racismis a system which elevates one group of people at the expense of people who are not within that group and engenders racist tendencies within people without them even realizing it.
- White people are the benefactors of this system which means that they have implicitly racist attitudes without even knowing that they do, and even people who are trying to not be racist can in fact end up being racist.
- Heteronormativityis the orientation counterpart to racism and assumes heterosexuality as normal and non-heterosexuality as not-normal.
- Straight people again benefit from heteronormativity as their sexuality is seen as “normal” and “healthy” while those who are not heterosexual are seen as implicitly sexual (adding a homosexual children’s show character is frequently dismissed due to this), or otherwise made into caricatures of themselves by heterosexuals
- Transphobia is again a counterpart to racism and again cis people are transphobic without knowing they are (major newsmedia misgendering Chelsea Manning, Katie Couric being blatantly ignorant towards Laverne Cox during her interview, the list goes on)
- Cis people are the number one cause of Trans people being murdered by a staggering margin. They are the cause of trans homelessness and trans people’s anxiety as they are misgendered, mocked, attacked, called slurs, and again, killed.
- Sexism is again a system of biases which result in women being demeaned while men are given carte blanche
- Men are the benefactors of a patriarchal system which allows them to believe that they will get what they want, that women are less intelligent, less capable, less important, LESS, and have made an entire movement devoted to distrupting feminist discourse any way they can
And most importantly,
- the distrust that PoC, LGBQIA people, trans people, and women have of White, Heterosexual, Cisgender Men is a defense mechanism, and the reason why blanket statements are used is not so that hatred is engendered but so that people reading the article who fall under that category question their own behavior to determine if they have been part of the problem and not part of the solution and that the goal of social justice and the feminist movement is to attack the societal mechanisms which enforce the views and opinions which result in the degredation of anyone not white cisgender heterosexual male.

Confused husky pup
He’s not expressing confusion, he’s tilting his head for better sound localization. While having an ear on each side of the head is good for lateral echolocation, tilting the head so that the ears are offset gives it vertical depth.
Oh my gosh, that explains why some dogs put their head to one side when you talk to them. They’re not confused, they’re trying to listen to us better. Awww.OH MY GODayana-annapurna
this is fucking hilarious

Crows are scary
- use tools
- Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
- Have huge brains for birds
- like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
- They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
- they are scary smart at solving puzzles
- some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
- they can remember faces
- SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT. They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows. Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag. But the nice guys with masks they left alone. THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight. THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
- They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.
Yeah but have you seen this
YEAH! THEY ALSO PLAY FOR NO EVIDENT REASON OTHER THAN FUN AND THEY LOVE THE SNOW!
Crows are seriously the coolest birbs ever.
