trovia :“As early as the 1920s, researchers giving IQ tests to non-Westerners realized that any test of intelligence is strongly, if subtly, imbued with cultural biases… Samoans, when given a test requiring them to trace a route form point A to point B, often chose not the most direct route (the “correct” answer), but rather the most aesthetically pleasing one. Australian aborigines find it difficult to understand why a friend would ask them to solve a difficult puzzle and not help them with it. Indeed, the assumption that one must provide answers alone, without assistance from those who are older and wiser, is a statement about the culture-bound view of intelligence. Certainly the smartest thing to do, when face with a difficult problem, is to seek the advice of more experienced relatives and friends!”

If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times. IQ tests measure how well someone takes IQ tests and that is it.
seeing people say shit like “i wish i as born gay” or “i wish i was born a different gender” makes me s o sad bc ill bet you dimes to dollars that person is on the lgbt spectrum but because of ingrained phobias and the way media portrays people like us, it feels like an insurmountable implausibility, when its really not. if you wish you were gay, or trans, or whatever, then like, maybe you should give the introspection a chance. compulsive heteronormativity is real and it can truly make you believe youre cis and straight and that you never need to think more into it than that.
honestly this post is extremely real
like if you find yourself thinking “boy, i wish i was the other gender” then i’ve got some great news for you
this is so sad omg please give the snail a happy ending :(
@oodlemcdoodle can.. You…give him a happy ending..
Okay, hold on bud
Okay but this can be interpreted as a lesson about disability, illness, and mental health. It might take *you* ten seconds to draw a big old orange line, but for some people it’s an enormous accomplishment. People whose hands shake, people with executive dysfunction, people with poor hand-eye coordination. This snail.
It may be easy for you to go out for groceries. Some people barely manage to get out of bed.
It may be easy for you to express yourself. Some people were never given the tools.
Now I’m even more happy that the snail got a happy ending here <3
I hope Sebastian knows that 99% of his fans aren’t crazy-ass stalkers. You can love a person without standing outside their Starbucks, finding what hotel they’re staying in, etc. He’s a goddamn human being with feelings and a personal life.
He loves us just as much as we love him and he goes out of his way to meet his fans, but he’s not gonna do it if this keeps happening.
Please, leave him alone.
I stared at this post for two minutes wondering when Sebastian the crab, from The Little Mermaid, had gotten such an intense fanbase.

I was commissioned by @chloe-bourgeois-cesaire to do a JuleRose and Myvan piece in light of Zombiezou
the girls are celebrating Pride at the park and this was super fun to color!
Mylene and Ivan are celebrating their anniversary with some ice cream from André’s.
This is the most beautiful Julerose piece I’ve seen.
Please, bring more attention to this and all the missing girls! Every girl could get this kind of message, this is really dangerous! The media doesn’t want to talk about it, so we are forced to act independently!
I can name about 5 white girls that got international attention when they went missing… everyday teenage girls whose names will forever be in my head from seeing their images everywhere over the years! But black girls can go missing and the worldwide media can look the other way!
The media can give 24 hours coverage of riots but when it comes to these missing black and latino girls they don’t want to cover it.
Smh.. I’m tired…
boosting this warning <3
it’s really interesting how in cop shows it’s only ever the Bad Guy that won’t let police into their house without a warrant, asks for legal counsel, refuses to talk to police, won’t let themselves be searched without probable cause, or exercises their legal rights at all. wonder who that could possibly benefit
reblog and put in the tags what your total number of notes across all original posts are from this site. it also gives you your top 9 posts.
70,605 (and of course my popular stuff is all Dragon Age shit posting)
1,449 notes. The most popular post being the one where I celebrated Big Bang Theory’s cancellation.
49,684 which is a lot more than i expected tbh
The two champions are a picture of a very good rat, and discourse about Hades getting pegged
Misogynists accidentally writing gays because they hate women too much to include any kind of chemistry between a woman and anyone else or even to write more than a couple of lines for their two women characters is very funny but in a horrifying and soul-crushingly disappointing way
