Eat Your Tardigrades or You Don’t Get Dessert!
You know this little guy, right? It’s the mighty tardigrade, as featured in the new Cosmos. Tardigrades, also known as water bears, also known as FREAKIN’ MOSS PIGLETS, are microscopic eight-legged animals that can withstand temperatures from near absolute zero to boiling water, absorb extreme doses of radiation, go without food or water for ten years, and even survive the vacuum of space. They can even be completely dried out and ride on the wind to a new home, where they rehydrate and go about their tardibusiness. Tardigrade rain, folks.
In other words, they are BAMFs (bad-ass microfauna).
Oh, and you’ve probably eaten them. Thanks to Meg Lowman, I found out that these water-dwelling super-critters live not only on wild mosses and wet plants, but on grocery store produce like lettuce and spinach. Do you think that a mere rinse or shake under the faucet (or even cooking) is enough to dislodge a radiation-eating space pig? Ha! Not by a long shot, according to Lowman.
So yeah… trying to go strictly vegetarian? You’ve almost certainly eaten some tardigrades. Sorry. Don’t worry, though. They’re totally harmless. I like to imagine that when I eat them, I absorb their power, and become a little bit mightier.
New motto: For strength, eat your vegetables and eat your tardigrades.
Meg Lowman has more about your local tardigrade friends. Also check out Lowman’s awesome research project that helps wheelchair-bound students climb to the top of the forest canopy where they help study tardigrade biodiversity. Science is for everyone!

Appa! :D Yip yip!

Okay yes you got me.

I did indeed start identifying as asexual because I’m on Tumblr.

And you know what.

If I wasn’t on Tumblr, if this website hadn’t taught me that wonderful little word, I would still be identifying as what I did before Tumblr.

Would you like me to tell you what that word was?

Broken.

I also thought I was broken and my husband used that fact to force me into sex for years. Years

EDUCATION AND VISIBILITY ARE IMPORTANT

saintkathryn:

People really need to educate themselves on “tone policing”.

You have every right to be passionate if it’s something you’re passionate about.

You do NOT have the right to be aggressive to someone who isn’t aggressive to you. Especially if the person is just wrong and needs correcting.

And if you don’t care about correcting someone then you need to ignore them.

These are really simple concepts, guys.

People really DO need to educate themselves on tone policing!

Like how politely telling someone that glorifying the murder of their people is justified because you aren’t personally affected by it is a really freaking aggressive thing to do and totally justifies an aggressive response, so shut the fuck up about tone policing and don’t fucking tell people to be nice to you if they want your respect!

YOU KNOW, IT WAS ALREADY PRETTY FREAKING CLEAR THEY DIDN’T HAVE YOUR RESPECT THE MOMENT YOU TRIED TO TELL THEM THEIR GLORIFIED EXTERMINATION WAS NO BIG DEAL

I have respect for flipping everyoneexcept bigots. So guess what? You want my respect, you better be hell of freaking nice to me, bigot, because I’m not about to respect you unless you respect me—and everyone who’s important to me—first.

REAL QUICK POLL

How many of you have heard of the expression “Call off your dogs” and accurately understand its intention?

You answered: Hahaha! How many of you have seen a racist bigot call a WOC a cunt because she doesn’t like the murder of East Asians glorified for whiteppl?

i have a nice layer of I dont give a fuck fur on my legs and that’s how it’s gunna be

My legs get hairier than my dad’s.

The legacy of anti-Black racism is that Black struggle gets deemed the property of all other social justice struggles. The symbols and tactics of Black struggle are deemed the common property of all. Black people are required to show solidarity with other people of color, without other people of color owing solidarity to Black communities. Black oppression is always analogized to other forms of oppression in a manner that disappears Black oppression itself. It is presumed we already know everything about Black oppression, so we can just use it as an empty signifier to explain other oppressions.

Andrea Smith, as quoted by @prisonculture on twitter. (via so-treu)

Damn. TELL IT.

Black oppression is always analogized to other forms of oppression in a manner that disappears Black oppression itself.

If I had a dollar for every. fucking. time.someone compared being black to being gay, or disabled, or…..anything really.

THIS!!!!!!!

So on point!! This happens so much it’s—in fact, when does this NOT happen? I even just recently had an exchange with a bigot about homophobia who quickly argued that gays have no equivalent of Jim Crow laws and therefore are pretty much equal in society. And this is why I don’t engage with basic-ass creeps like him, because nuh-uh, you do not get to use black people as a pawn to justify your homophobia! That is sick on every level! Stop freaking erasing black people’s suffering by turning it into a measure against which to compare and excuse other people’s suffering! That is so disgusting!
