witchlockfox:

you know what i agree that every time the media depicts DID or some mental illness (but especially DID) they always want to show someone who has completely lost it and is “low functioning” and that gets annoying because many people with a mental illness (including DID) are high functioning and have their shit together but you know what

please stop ignoring the people who are mentally ill who can’t work, who can’t go to school, who can’t handle their lives, are on disability, have to be institutionalized, etc. etc. SHOULD I GO ON

because hey, those people exist TOO, and ignoring the experiences of high-functioning people with mental illness is just as bad as ignoring the experiences of low-functioning people with mental illness, okay? 

and what’s even worse is that there’s this “superiority” tone to everything about it like “haha, we’re not ALL crazy like that” like stop, stop right now, i am so sick of making this point, but shitting on other disorders and illnesses (like psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia) or people who aren’t as high-functioning as you in an attempt to “fight ableism” isn’t actually fighting ableism, it’s actually reinforcing the same shitty stereotypes and ableist beliefs

because you know what else?  i’m mentally ill and i can’t work at a job, i can’t go to school, i’m on disability, i’ve been institutionalized seven or eight times (i don’t feel like counting right now), i’m psychotic, i often relate to those low-functioning cases shown in the media you all harp on, and that doesn’t make me “lol CRAZY” or somehow bad or inferior to you

I don’t understand why I’m so upset. I got so much done today and now I just want to curl into a ball crying what the FUCK is wrong with me

"A new study shows that men are threatened by confident women taking pictures of themselves, and call these women stupid, socially inept, and ugly. In other news, the world is round, the sky is blue, and the patriarchy is still shitty."

THIS ^^^^^^^^

^^^^^ The fact that people actually spend money on these studies to research shit that irrelevant irritates me. Do you know how much money goes into committing research?

I let it go. It’s like swimming against the current. It exhausts you. After a while, whoever you are, you just have to let go, and the river brings you home.

straight people are so weird wtf like heres a drawing of two animals in love but one has eyelashes so you know these are Straight Animals

image

YES THIS OMFG

There’s this weird unspoken rule of western animation that WOMAN=EYELASHES. I have a butch/femme lesbian couple and had to add big ol’ eyelashes to the butch girl because everyone kept assuming that it was a straight couple otherwise. :|

one project I was art lead on had a female scottish terrier lead character. Initially, she just had these little beady black eyes. She also had a sweet pink scarf from the get-go because she was fabulous, but I was eventually forced to give her eyelashes, as well. Because apparently, she was "too gay" without eyelashes 8|

8|

And it’s kind of funny because I often seen the most fabulous eyelashes on men not on women? Like men tend to have longer/fuller lashes. 

Lmao the dog was too gay without eyelashes really.

it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same

I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life

For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw

WHAT

It’s okay, I’ve lived 4 hours north of Arkansas my whole life, been there many times. Sometimes I still call it Ar-Kansas in my head. 

Also, this is how I felt when I found out that Kanata and Canada were not pronounced with the same emphasis on syllables. (Ka-NAH-ta, apparently.)

Help save the honey bees! Please reblog and share :)

I’m very skeptical about this. Last I’ve heard, CCD is caused by a combination of factors, and to blindly point a finger at one source without references just ticks my bullshit meter. Anyone got science to back this up?

I checked out this page on the Ontario Beekeeper’s Association website, and found a couple of recent papers on the subject (though, granted, they are against the use of neonicotinoid, so it might be a one-sided story). The general consensus seems to be (bee?) that sublethal doses of neonicotinoids cause changes in behavior and physiology which leads to colony collapse - immune suppression to make them more susceptible to disease, negative change in foraging behavior, abandonment of poisoned hives, etc - so, yes, it seems that it is a combination of factors, which are aggravated by pesticide poisoning.

I’ve seen a bunch of “save the bees” post floating around tumblr, but this is the first one anyone bothered to put sources on.
Thank you. (However I’m not going to look at the sources now, but hopefully I will remember to do so later.)

Not to mention that stopping the use of these pesticides is one of the easiest things we could control— if people were willing. It’s hard to control parasites and internal issues that the bee faces, but it is not hard to stop spraying crops with harmful pesticides.
