If there’s one thing I’ve learned from reading fanfiction, it’s that clear communication will save you at least three chapters of angst.

AMEN.

Most days I wish I never met you because then I could sleep at night and I wouldn’t have to walk around with the knowledge there was someone like you out there.

Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.

- Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)

new sailor moon anime is making dudebros piss and moan and it isn’t even out yet. I’m so proud.

how is that pissing and moaning? they’re rightfully pointing out that you can’t gender a fucking anime

It’s not gendering an anime to point out it was made for women and the majority of the consumers are women. Sailor Moon DID capture the hearts of girls everywhere. It isn’t like there’s a footnote that says “BUT NO BOY HEARTS WERE CAPTURED”
It means a whole fucking lot to a lot of girls because it is rare to get a superhero that is aimed to empower them. Naoko Takeuchi said she made Sailor Moon for girls, to empower girls. She has said this. That was her goal. She wanted to reach girls. You have a problem with that, and the advertisements acknowledging this was the aim of Sailor Moon, that’s really fucking sad.


seriously how is anyone surprised by this.
Whenever dudebros see one thing in this world not aimed towards them, they piss and moan about their balls shriveling up. number one, balls /=/ being a guy. Number 2- go watch the thousands of other things FOR YOU. 
In America, you have plenty. Women aren’t considered an audience worth drawing in. Media studies have shown executives often only target men and figure women don’t need to be targeted bc they’ve been forced to watch shit aimed at men, to put up with male aimed fanservice, their whole lives. They will come with the dudes. They CANCELED superhero cartoons recently using the fact it was too popular with the female viewership instead of the male viewership. Girls don’t often get stuff for them. Disney princesses (which are currently avoiding putting the name of female characters in the movie titles  so boys will go see them). my little pony, which gets a bunch of dudes taking it over, making porn and actually making it uncomfortable for little girls to attend it.Definitely not fucking superheroes (say Wonder Woman and NOT SINCE THE 1970S notice how she doesn’t have a movie or a cartoon and her comic panders towards dudes). 
So when I see American dudes feeling put upon that Japanese media aims some stuff towards girls? zero sympathy. 
Aiming towards girls is what made Sailor Moon what it is.
I feel intense pity for men who can’t handle being put second ever. This is not made for you. You can still enjoy it. Just try to resist the urge not to be catered to or put first in every series you watch.

Naoko Takeuchi is a Japanese feminist and Sailor Moon is definitely a series created “for girls, by girls”. It’s always been that way for the entire 20 year history of the show, even BEFORE production plans were made during Sailor V’s serialization. 
Boys are welcome (and I would even encourage them!) in the Sailor Moon fandom, but just as women are expected to deal with the fact that comic books aren’t created with their focus in mind, I think men can be expected to not demand that a little girl’s anime series be catered to them.

*whispers* it’s starting

Cats who can’t figure out walls [x]

PLEASE TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET IF YOU SEE THEM DOING THIS BEHAVIOR OVER TIME.

It’s called “head pressing” and it occurs in dogs and cats. 

Head pressing is characterized by the compulsive act of pressing the head against a wall or other object for no apparent reason. This generally indicates damage to the nervous system, which may result from a number of varying causes, including prosencephalon disease (in which the forebrain and thalamusparts of the brain are damaged), or toxic poisoning.

http://www.vet.cornell.edu/FHC/health_resources/toxoplasmosis.cfm (head pressing is listed as a symptom)

http://sevneurology.com/patients/clip-multilobular-osteochondroma (About a dog’s brain tumor but head pressing is listed as a symptom)

I wasn’t going to reblog this until I read the important caption dang thank you!!!
