It’s not consent unless there is a choice. A ‘yes’ doesn’t mean anything unless saying ‘no’ is a safe and comfortable option available.

Fuck. This is literally the best commentary on consent I’ve ever seen.

This is so fucking important to understand. All of it.

“I’m sick of how bisexuality is erased in LGBT spaces. I get really nervous before any LGBT event, especially Pride. I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – Continue reading Prejudice at Pride at Empathize This






i’m watching a british youtuber’s birthday stream and an aussie viewer sent in a comment saying “why was he born so beautiful, why was he born at all? because he had no say in it, no say in it at all” which was received with confused existential horror, and this is how i just discovered that australian happy birthday songs are not universal


do you not sing this in other countries?!?!??

NO we do not sing a lament for someone’s personal beauty wishing they’d never been born. That is some weird Greek tragedy shit.

Oh. I did not realise nobody else does this.

some fucking dumbass: gay people with gay relatives are more likely to be gay than straight people with predominantly straight relatives, proving the gay gene is real and exists

me, a gay with a brain: gay people with gay relatives feel more safe coming out than gay people with a lot of straight relatives, proving nothing other than the fact that straight people oppress us and then try to cop out of taking responsibility


do you ever have a conversation and think “I am not heterosexual enough for this”

No. Look at the position of the tail fins. They’re perpendicular rather than parallel to the ground. That’s a sky shark.


child handling for the childless nurse


My current job has me working with children, which is kind of a weird shock after years in environments where a “young” patient is 40 years old.  Here’s my impressions so far:

Birth - 1 year: Essentially a small cute animal.  Handle accordingly; gently and affectionately, but relying heavily on the caregivers and with no real expectation of cooperation.

Age 1 - 2: Hates you.  Hates you so much.  You can smile, you can coo, you can attempt to soothe; they hate you anyway, because you’re a stranger and you’re scary and you’re touching them.  There’s no winning this so just get it over with as quickly and non-traumatically as possible.

Age 3 - 5: Nervous around medical things, but possible to soothe.  Easily upset, but also easily distracted from the thing that upset them.  Smartphone cartoons and “who wants a sticker?!!?!?” are key management techniques.

Age 6 - 10: Really cool, actually.  I did not realize kids were this cool.  Around this age they tend to be fairly outgoing, and super curious and eager to learn.  Absolutely do not babytalk; instead, flatter them with how grown-up they are, teach them some Fun Gross Medical Facts, and introduce potentially frightening experiences with “hey, you want to see something really cool?”

Age 11 - 14: Extremely variable.  Can be very childish or very mature, or rapidly switch from one mode to the other.  At this point you can almost treat them as an adult, just… a really sensitive and unpredictable adult.  Do not, under any circumstances, offer stickers.  (But they might grab one out of the bin anyway.)

Age 15 - 18: Basically an adult with severely limited life experience.  Treat as an adult who needs a little extra education with their care.  Keep parents out of the room as much as possible, unless the kid wants them there.  At this point you can go ahead and offer stickers again, because they’ll probably think it’s funny.  And they’ll want one.  Deep down, everyone wants a sticker.

This company understands dogs. (via jpellizzi)

this is Barkshop’s Consuela Cactus!

Barkshop does a lot of toys that have “destroyer’s prizes” inside, normally a sturdy squeaker ball.

They have packages of toys designed based on play-style (I’m getting the ‘thrasher’ pack for Aiden’s birthday).

They also have a “destroyer’s club” where you can earn points by showing them the carnage your dogs inflict on their barkshop toys and earn a free toy. 

It’s a really great company and if I could get free shipping i’d be spending my heart away on their stuff.
