I think about this tweet a lot.
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
New project! According to my ipod, I have 5000 songs in my music library, and I’m probably only familiar with half of them. So I’ve decided to listen through all of them in order by artist.
Today’s artists: a-ha through Across the Universe cast
Today’s song that stood out: Take On Me by a-ha. I always forget how fun and bouncy this song is!
is it your own skin though? As in you grew it, on your own body, from birth?
This skin was grown yes. On a human body. That is mine. I’m not a robot
Ok ok I’ll believe you… If you first tell me what this says:
I don’t need to prove myself to you how dare you, I love breathing oxygen
what are taxes and how do I pay them?
mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell
Someone made a thing that changes “SJW” to “skeleton” and it’s the best thing
Today is National Coming Out Day.
Feels like good timing for me. I have been at a women in computing conference this weekend with my workplace. This means I’m with a bunch of coworkers who I am work-friends with, but who don’t necessarily know I’m pan (unless they stalked me on fb for some reason).
At this conference they have a bunch of ribbons you can add to your badge that say different groups you’re a part of. They have ones for different clubs and mailing lists, and ones for latinas, black women, etc. And they have ones that say “LGBT”.
I took an LGBT ribbon on the first day but I was weirdly nervous to put it on my badge. I know both the conference and my workplace are very accepting, but I was still worried people would ask me weird questions or just be confused.
On day two I decided to be brave and put on the ribbon, and I was happy to see no one said anything. Even when we were comparing ribbons to see who had more, no one asked me anything, they just accepted it.
In the end I am really glad I did that because many of the women who came to talk to our booth also had LGBT ribbons. I hope that these women saw my ribbon and felt that much more comfortable with our company.
