Hey look it’s the traitors. 

This physically hurts

Yes, it hurts to see two players leave everything on the ice for their team and the team not trying to resign them. But its a business, and “team loyalty” is just one-way bullshit teams feed the fans. And fans eat it up! Call these guys traitors for getting a job somewhere else! In what other profession do people actually call an employee a TRAITOR for finding a new job after their old job didn’t want them? Apparenly, professional players of a violent injurious game should offer to work for less? Or maybe they should just sit outside the arena of the team who didn’t want them anymore? And nobody ever seems to look down on the teams’ lack of loyalty to the players. Its always “good job team Blah for getting player Blah to work for less!” and “smart move team Blah dumping those old or injured players!” and basically “I can’t believe my team is actually PAYING player Blah market value to play!!!!” and never never “Wow, team Blah is a piece of shit for not resigning player Blah who played through all those injuries last season and put team winning and fans being entertained before his own actual health and well-being, way to reward his loyalty and dedication”….

    Anonymous said: Do you ever think you'll stop drawing fanart? No offense it just seems like the kind of thing you're supposed to grow out of. I'm just curious what your plans/goals are since it isn't exactly an art form that people take seriously.

    thescienceofjohnlock:

    Ah, fanart. Also known as the art that girls make.

    Sad, immature girls no one takes seriously. Girls who are taught that it’s shameful to be excited or passionate about anything, that it’s pathetic to gush about what attracts them, that it’s wrong to be a geek, that they should feel embarrassed about having a crush, that they’re not allowed to gaze or stare or wish or desire. Girls who need to grow out of it.

    That’s the art you mean, right?

    Because in my experience, when grown men make it, nobody calls it fanart. They just call it art. And everyone takes it very seriously.

    It’s interesting though — the culture of shame surrounding adult women and fandom. Even within fandom it’s heavily internalized: unsurprisingly, mind, given that fandom is largely comprised by young girls and, unfortunately, our culture runs on ensuring young girls internalize *all* messages no matter how toxic. But here’s another way of thinking about it.

    Sports is a fandom. It requires zealous attention to “seasons,” knowledge of details considered obscure to those not involved in that fandom, unbelievable amounts of merchandise, and even “fanfic” in the form of fantasy teams. But this is a masculine-coded fandom. And as such, it’s encouraged - built into our economy! Have you *seen* Dish network’s “ultimate fan” advertisements, which literally base selling of a product around the normalization of all consuming (male) obsession? Or the very existence of sports bars, built around the link between fans and community enjoyment and analysis. Sport fandom is so ingrained in our culture that major events are treated like holidays (my gym closes for the Super Bowl) — and can you imagine being laughed at for admitting you didn’t know the difference between Supernatural and The X Files the way you might if you admit you don’t know the rules of football vs baseball, or basketball?

    "Fandom" is not childish but we live in a culture that commodified women’s time in such away that their hobbies have to be "frivolous," because "mature" women’s interests are supposed to be caretaking, via marriage, children, and the lives of those within an imagined (generally nuclear) family unit: things that allow others to continue their own special interests, while leaving women without a space of their own.

    So think about what you’re actually saying when you call someone “too old” for fandom. Because you’re suggesting they are “too old” for a consuming hobby, and I challenge you to answer — what do you think they should be doing instead?

    I would like every anon and non-anon who have sent me messages along the the lines of 'you're too old for tumblr, it's creepy' and 'when will you grow out of fandom?' to read this and remember it when they are in their 40s.

    Yes.

    "oh my god, you’re seriously going to pay college kids $15 an hour to flip burgers? get a real job!"

    scenicroutes:

    a real job? you mean, like, an internship at the white house?

    image

    okay, well what about the national democratic party?

    image

    what about interning at the united nations?

    image

    wow damn it’s almost like our economy functions on stealing labour from hardworking young people, regardless of whether their jobs are “real” or not

    Why isn’t flipping burgers a “real job”? Someone’s gotta do it. It sure isn’t a “fun activity”. Do you want to go flip them? I don’t. That means its a “real job”. Next you’ll be saying washing floors and toilets isn’t a “real job”. Jeez »:|

    The more I think about Pacific Rim, the more I realize that half the stuff in there is stuff that’s never done because people say it’ll keep a movie from being successful. There’s so many tropes inverted, and it’s all done so right.

    • Raleigh’s story begins moving forward because of a death of a loved one. Rather than it being a girlfriend, a mother, or a sister, it was his brother. The movie literally starts with a man being put in the refrigerator. In fact, through the entire film, no woman dies to advance the characterization of a man. 
    • There’s three lead characters in the film. One is an Asian woman. One is a Black man. One is a white man. In many situations like this, the white man’s story would default to the A-plot, while the other two characters would either have a subplot, or spend the entire film as support extensions of the white male lead’s A-plot. In “Pacific Rim,” however, the story of Mako and Stacker is the A-plot, and Raleigh is the one whose development is a subplot and whose role in the film is largely supportive to the A-plot. 
    • Speaking of the A-plot, it’s a coming-of-age, heartfelt father-daughter story that shows both the daughter’s struggle to respect her father’s instructions despite them being contrary to her desires, and the father’s struggle to trust his daughter to take care of herself and accept the fact that she’s grown up and he can’t protect her forever. That’s a pretty common theme in movies, but what’s the proportion of those movies where the father and daughter are white? Pretty damn high. The proportion of movies where it’s a father and daughter of color is practically statistically insignificant. The fact that this familiar story is shown not only with a man of color as the concerned father and a woman of color as the grown daughter, but also that it’s a situation of interracial adoption, is magnificent. 
    • The core of the story revolves around a woman who’s an action star, is feminine without being sexualized, and who has her own motivations and acts for her own reasons, independent of the men around her. Even though she is not blind to the presence of the men in the story, and she considers them as much as they consider her, she is not an extension of any of them. 
    • It’s a blockbuster action film that shows a friendship between a man and a woman who have lots of chemistry, but is not a romantic relationship. In fact, not a single one of the characters’ storylines includes a romantic subplot. I remember for the last few months, I would ask people to name one feel-good movie that doesn’t have a romantic subplot. People would almost always reply that there is no such movie, or that such a movie isn’t possible. 

    And that’s the thing. These are all features of a movie that people say are impossible to pull off, or won’t play with audience, or won’t make money, but in Pacific Rim, it proves that “it doesn’t work” isn’t the reason. Pacific Rim has gotten overwhelming critical praise, garnered a cult following within days, as well as being near-universally loved by audiences. Put aside the fact that it proves movies about gigantic mechas and monsters smashing buildings and punching each other can be smart (meaning Michael Bay has no excuse), it proves that movies don’t need to be about white men first, white women second, and everybody else third, if at all, and the rest of Hollywood has no excuse for their insistence on making movies that way.

    there is so little emphasis on helping victims and survivors forgive ourselves for something that was never our fault to begin with, compared to the dogmatic chanting that we must learn to forgive our abusers at any expense.

    that’s right! it says so in the good ..news article! forgive your abusers and don’t ruin their bright futures!

One of my hens attempted to crow this morning.
I didn’t realize it at the time. No, my immediate assumption was that something was brutally murdering one of my birds. I rushed to the rescue only to find the yard conspicuously empty of threats, but I didn’t relax until that awful rasping caw came again from my right.
Here she is compared to another black bantam I got at the same time as her. Her comb and wattles are huge, but I just kinda disregarded it because those two aren’t the same breed even though they’re similar looking. Shouldn’t have, that comb is almost rooster-sized regardless of breed differences.
Just wanted to share, I figured Tumblr would get a kick out of a non-binary chicken.

Years ago I had something similar happen. In the early spring a batch of mixed breed chicks hatched (all I can remember is that they were 1/4 silkie) as the months passed and the chicks grew and their sex characteristics developed, all hens… sort of.
One bird, a petite black hen, started crowing, by the fall she was crowing just as well and often as the roosters we kept in the coop. But it didn’t stop there. During the winter I noticed this hen exclusively roosting with other hens, not that odd, but then one day I saw her mounting them.
When we let them out off the coop to free-range in the spring she had a small harem of other hens. They would follow her, “mate” with her, and only roost next to her, and, if a rooster antagonized her or her harem, she would spar with him (not always successfully). 
So remember, if anyone tries to explain away non-binary identities with a “Natural Order of Things” argument, flap aggressively at him and try to stab him with your leg spurs.  

nonbinary chickens are pretty common! Reason #89574897345 why I fucking love chickens.
