as a brunette mexican girl with a big nose who grew up watching the disney princess movies and loving herself more than is commonly accepted, I’ll just say this… if you’re a good parent, like my parents were, a blonde character in a cartoon isn’t going to damage your little girl, or her sense of self importance in “society.” I won’t deprive my three year old of a cartoon, that she loves to sing along with and say the lines to, because of my own insecurities or the ones other people tell me I’m supposed to have.
Tongue-eating Louse (Cymothoa exigua) is not an insect, but rather a parasitic isopod (Family: Cymothoidae ) that lives inside the mouths of fish. Juveniles gets into a fishes mouth by way of its gills. They will stay on the gill until the mature. Mature females will then attach themselves the host tongue, while males attach to the gill arches beneath and behind the female. The females will then bites onto the host tongue, draining blood away from the fishes tongue until the tongue atrophies away from lack of oxygen. The female Tongue-eating Louse then attaches itself to the remaining tongue stub, replacing the fishes tongue with its own body. The fish uses the “parasitic tongue” the same way it would used its real tongue. The Tongue-eating louse will feed on the host’s blood and mucus. Tongue-eating Louse do exhibits sexual reproduction and will under go protandy, when males are presents without a female
Another example of something that Old Rich White Men have culturally appropriated. Humans find it so acceptable to pierce and adorn their tongues in jewelry when, in reality, this practice originated with fish and their parasitic neighbors. Now humans use tongue piercing as a fashion statement which is extremely harmful, especially to otherkin like myself who identify as parasitic isopods. I pride myself on being very open minded but I cannot find a good reason for this sort of cultural appropriation where humans are stealing from other species. These are sacred, time honored traditions and everyone is hurt when they are stolen from us.
vegans that throw around the word rape are just as bad as libertarians that do
anyone that throws around the word rape when it has nothing to do with rape needs to stop
that is not a killer beat. you did not just kill that level of that game. batteries are not dead. you did not massacre that person in that debate. use words as we dictate. be afraid to use words as you please. we will harass, intimidate, and report you if you do not speak exactly as we demand. you are not free. veganism is a dietary practice/ lifestyle, libertarianism is a political philosophy. how they relate to each other in the original post is not clear. you may as well have said “pizza delivery people that throw around the word rape are just as bad as single mothers that do.”
If someone tells you a racist, sexist or homophobic joke, don’t get mad at them. Just tell them you don’t get it. Keep telling them you don’t get it until they are forced to explain why women/minorities/homosexuals are stupid/etc.
Then just walk away.
I DO THIS, they feel like such shit when they have to explain why it’s “funny”
all jokes are ruined if they have to be explained. you wouldn’t understand. you’re not super mega funny like me. also this post of yours. I hate men, kill all men. is sexist. I know you wouldn’t actually kill all men, and you might have even made this post out of humor, but even though I don’t think its funny, I wouldn’t harrass you… that is, if your post hadn’t been so hypocritical, and if this wasn’t tumblr.
