This is harder than it looks b/c how can I find the right words to say?!?
1. I pull over for turtles or swerve around them slowly if it’s unsafe for me to stop b/c I don’t wanna startle them.
2. I remember anything you verbally say to me b/c I like to keep track of likes and dislikes etc so I guess I can be considerate.
3. Having a lion’s mane for hair isn’t too bad and accepting it has been so liberating!!!!
4. I’ve been told that I’m pretty intense. I like that because I believe you should do all things with passion or not bother at all.
5. My dog, Fluffy, is my bestfriend and she is with me whenever I am singing, which is always.
Speaking of different body shapes. These are all basically peak human bodies.
How come 99% of them don’t conform to what the entertainment industry tells us is the perfect body?
This is a FABULOUS set of body refs. So glad this came back across my dash so I could reblog it here :D
Totally reblogging it too cuz I lost it the last 3294 times I saw it on the interbutts. GJ!
I know you probably have seen this before, but here it is again. I love that this includes males bodies as well, and is a great reference for anyone wanting to design a various cast of characters. The mere size difference between some neighbours on some photos should give you artists great pointers on how to portray height variation in a believable way to your viewers!
(Also that way I have it in a place I’l remember and will be able to get it whenever I need it so there.)
I didn’t learn until I was in college about all the other cultures, and I should have learned that in the first grade. A first grader should understand that his or her culture isn’t a rational invention; that there are thousands of other cultures and they all work pretty well; that all cultures function on faith rather than truth; that there are lots of alternatives to our own society. Cultural relativity is defensible and attractive. It’s also a source of hope. It means we don’t have to continue this way if we don’t like it.
“I wanted to be a defense lawyer because I wanted to come back and protect my community. I wanted to protect my people from the police. People around here grow up hating the police. But you know what they’ve done? The police have recruited our people. They’ve made it more complicated. They’ve got Dominicans and Puerto Ricans doing their work for them. Because they know it’s hard to hate your people. But as soon as that badge goes on, it changes you. Once that badge goes on, your people are the ‘boys in blue.’”
