But not just any tomato.
My grandma has spoiled me by growing the worlds best tomato’s and feeding them to me until I hear the word tomato,
and I think deep red heirloom.
I think sweet with golden California sun,
juice running down your chin.
Grandma’s strong hands in the warm earth,
yellow cherry tomatoes sweet like candy,
deep purple and richer than the highest quality cut of beef.
I hear tomato and I think of love.￼
you know what? fuck you *replaces all the boards in your ship with different boards until you aren’t sure whether it’s the same ship anymore*
You know what? Fuck you back *builds exact replica of the ship with the discarded original boards*
writing fanfiction is just. i’m being so creative and original. i’m plagiarizing everyone by accident. i’m a genius. i’m cringe. i’m too angsty. i’m too cheesy. this is not in character. it doesn’t matter that it’s not in character because these are my characters now. i love my hobby. this is the worst possible use of my time. i’m seeking validation. i’m projecting my own personal problems onto this story and i’m barely hiding it. i know so many words and i’m using all of them wrong. im on tumblr posting about it instead of writing it.
This is where malicious compliance comes into play… We once saw sprinklers at noon going on a police hq and called on them. (Sprinklers should go after dark, less water evaporates) it’s not ppl wasting resources, it’s institutions. Don’t call on individuals, call on organizations, companies and institutions.
the best thing about this is that when there’s plenty of resources, domesticated cats will naturally form colonies. in these colonies female cats raise their kittens communally with their kin. so you get situations where moms will raise kittens with their daughters from a previous litter, cats from the same litter will raise kittens together, etc. so not only does this little old kitty see her human as family, she is also excited to help her with her kitten.

Some thoughts about my personal gender journey.
remember that you’re white before you’re anything else and this impacts every single way you interact with the world compared to poc
whiteness is a shield for you as a person and its part of your privilege, ignorance on said privilege is complacency and support to white supremacy. a poc saying you have privilege is not an insult but a fact and a lot of you seriously have to think critically for once and question as to why you feel insulted
“neurodivergent people are bad at picking up social cues” statistically untrue every day i pick up on millions of social cues that literally do not exist
If your shot hit the tree, then it still missed the deer, my dude.

The fact that grimes commented lmfaooooo
She’s actually “correct” in a nefarious way by asking you to Google it yourself because, yeah, OP is wrong. He doesn’t use child slavery to source lithium…
He uses child slavery to source cobalt to make lithium batteries
So by asking you to do your own research on the lithium sources, she’s derailing in his favor.
This is the same tactic the United States Atomic Energy Comission (now just the Department of Energy) intentionally misinformed uranium miners, mine owners, mill employees, and the general public during the uranium boom in the 40s-60s.
The AEC would put together “informational” seminars, videos, and presentations as propaganda for mine staff, miners, downwinders, the public, anyone involved. Their main tactic was the insistence that “Uranium is so weakly radioactive, it presented no hazard in uranium mines ” and while that is *technically* correct, Uranium isnt what kills you, its the Radium and Radon that Uranium decomposes into… the VERY carefully selected words by people headong organisation are always insidious. Dont expect them to mean anything but exactly what they say.
The worst part is this tactic WORKS and we need to be pointing out the other part of the story not being told by these people whos only agenda is to grow their bank account while sacrificing human lives.
i’m thinking about that post about how nature is healing with every update in minecraft
minecraft 1.12: more color than ever is brought to minecraft! parrots can be found in the jungle now!
minecraft 1.13: life has returned to the ocean! dolphins and fish and corals and sea pickles and vibrance!
minecraft 1.14: the villagers are remembering their culture and their craft! they’re more advanced than ever!
minecraft 1.15: bee :)
minecraft 1.16: there’s even life in the nether now! a somewhat-thriving society of piglins is there, there’s animals like striders and hoglins, and even forests of fungi!
minecraft 1.17: life is even occurring deep underground! axolotls are swimming around in the caves, new plantlife can be found stored away, and beautiful geodes adorn the underground!
minecraft 1.18: horror and evil and darkness. giant gashes in the world and looming mountains. hideous monster at the bottom of the caves. fucked up evil slime that wants to hurt you. kill kill violence murder kill
It is increasingly obvious that most people have no idea how to indicate an illness is slowly killing someone without making them cough up blood. Doesn’t matter what it is or if it has anything to do with your respiratory system, if you’re dying, you’re coughing up blood.
Writers found out about tuberculosis and were like “damn this slaps” and we’ve been stuck with it ever since
As a person the doc told had all the symptoms of something that kills people (procedural testing confirmed it was something else so that’s neat, I’ve been given steps to mitigate it so what I actually have won’t be a problem that could kill me for quite some time) I have some other options
1. MAKE THEM FALL OVER. Seriously most things that will kill people cause some bodily system to fail at some point, and having somebody be walking upright, then suddenly grasping for something to hold onto, then hitting the deck can be a far more dramatic moment than “oh no mystery illness, I’m coughing a lot, uh-oh there’s blood now.”
2. Cognitive dysfunction. One of the body’s common responses to “oh that’s no good” is to focus all of the attention on the problem, and that can make people with chronic illnesses ‘zone out’ for no reason. If you have a normally witty, innovative, or otherwise mentally present character having them sit in a chair talking and then suddenly drop out of the conversation, only coming back to it when somebody addresses them directly, and even then their eyes are perhaps unfocused, or they seem like they’re trying to say the minimum necessary to get you to move on. It can be a gut punch.
3. Lack of confidence. When something goes from routine to being something [malady] might prevent them from doing the person might suffer a loss of confidence. Maybe you have a strong character that has a stress-triggered case of syncope. They might hesitate to lift weights or work out again, fearing that sense of oncoming death that knocks when you realize your body is going to shut down on you and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.
4. The opposite of loss of confidence, the acquisition of false confidence. The inability to accept there’s things they can no longer do, punished by a demonstration of the fact they cannot do it. Maybe your character is a gymnast, but tore their rotator cuff. They might instinctively go to swing around a corner by the doorframe, a typical enough gesture for most, especially those accustomed to moving quickly, but the pressure of simple inertia causes them to cry out in pain and fall, their arm and torso spasming as a sense of hurt, failure, and doubt clouds their eyes.
5. Google illnesses with similar symptoms, then go read peoples’ stories. “There’s nothing more tragic than the truth,” and whatnot. Oftentimes an author cannot even imagine the pain of having something be one’s lived experience. So go look for people who have that lived experience. Then revel in the pain you can cause your character.

Once you’ve looked over all those cool links, I have some general advice for you on how you can have some sort of support system going for you:
You may decide to leave home for many different reasons, including:
It’s common to be a little unsure when you make a decision like leaving home. You may choose to move, but find that you face problems you didn’t anticipate, such as:
Think about how your parents may be feeling and talk with them if they are worried about you. Most parents want their children to be happy and independent, but they might be concerned about a lot of different things. For example:
Reassure your parents that you will keep in touch and visit regularly. Try to leave on a positive note. Hopefully, they are happy about your plans and support your decision.
Not everyone who leaves home can return home or ask their parents for help in times of trouble. If you have been thrown out of home or left home to escape abuse or conflict, you may be too young or unprepared to cope.
If you are a fostered child, you will have to leave the state-care system when you turn 18, but you may not be ready to make the sudden transition to independence.
If you need support, help is available from a range of community and government organisations. Assistance includes emergency accommodation and food vouchers. If you can’t call your parents or foster parents, call one of the associations below for information, advice and assistance.

Are you flirting with me ?
So what I’ve learned from the past couple months of being really loud about being a bi woman on Tumblr is: A lot of young/new LGBT+ people on this site do not understand that some of the stuff they’re saying comes across to other LGBT+ people as offensive, aggressive, or threatening. And when they actually find out the history and context, a lot of them go, “Oh my god, I’m so sorry, I never meant to say that.”
Like, “queer is a slur”: I get the impression that people saying this are like… oh, how I might react if I heard someone refer to all gay men as “f*gs”. Like, “Oh wow, that’s a super loaded word with a bunch of negative freight behind it, are you really sure you want to put that word on people who are still very raw and would be alarmed, upset, or offended if they heard you call them it, no matter what you intended?”
So they’re really surprised when self-described queers respond with a LOT of hostility to what feels like a well-intentioned reminder that some people might not like it.
That’s because there’s a history of “political lesbians”, like Sheila Jeffreys, who believe that no matter their sexual orientation, women should cut off all social contact with men, who are fundamentally evil, and only date the “correct” sex, which is other women. Political lesbians claim that relationships between women, especially ones that don’t contain lust, are fundamentally pure, good, and unproblematic. They therefore regard most of the LGBT community with deep suspicion, because its members are either way too into sex, into the wrong kind of sex, into sex with men, are men themselves, or somehow challenge the very definitions of sex and gender.
When “queer theory” arrived in the 1980s and 1990s as an organized attempt by many diverse LGBT+ people in academia to sit down and talk about the social oppressions they face, political lesbians like Jeffreys attacked it harshly, publishing articles like “The Queer Disappearance of Lesbians”, arguing that because queer theory said it was okay to be a man or stop being a man or want to have sex with a man, it was fundamentally evil and destructive. And this attitude has echoed through the years; many LGBT+ people have experience being harshly criticized by radical feminists because being anything but a cis “gold star lesbian” (another phrase that gives me war flashbacks) was considered patriarchal, oppressive, and basically evil.
And when those arguments happened, “queer” was a good umbrella to shelter under, even when people didn’t know the intricacies of academic queer theory; people who identified as “queer” were more likely to be accepting and understanding, and “queer” was often the only label or community bisexual and nonbinary people didn’t get chased out of. If someone didn’t disagree that people got to call themselves queer, but didn’t want to be called queer themselves, they could just say “I don’t like being called queer” and that was that. Being “queer” was to being LGBT as being a “feminist” was to being a woman; it was opt-in.
But this history isn’t evident when these interactions happen. We don’t sit down and say, “Okay, so forty years ago there was this woman named Sheila, and…” Instead we queers go POP! like pufferfish, instantly on the defensive, a red haze descending over our vision, and bellow, “DO NOT TELL ME WHAT WORDS I CANNOT USE,” because we cannot find a way to say, “This word is so vital and precious to me, I wouldn’t be alive in the same way if I lost it.” And then the people who just pointed out that this word has a history, JEEZ, way to overreact, go away very confused and off-put, because they were just trying to say.
But I’ve found that once this is explained, a lot of people go, “Oh wow, okay, I did NOT mean to insinuate that, I didn’t realize that I was also saying something with a lot of painful freight to it.”
And that? That gives me hope for the future.
Similarily: “Dyke/butch/femme are lesbian words, bisexual/pansexual women shouldn’t use them.”
When I speak to them, lesbians who say this seem to be under the impression that bisexuals must have our own history and culture and words that are all perfectly nice, so why can’t we just use those without poaching someone else’s?
And often, they’re really shocked when I tell them: We don’t. We can’t. I’d love to; it’s not possible.
“Lesbian” used to be a word that simply meant a woman who loved other women. And until feminism, very, very few women had the economic freedom to choose to live entirely away from men. Lesbian bars that began in the 1930s didn’t interrogate you about your history at the door; many of the women who went there seeking romantic or sexual relationships with other women were married to men at the time. When The Daughters of Bilitis formed in 1955 to work for the civil and political wellbeing of lesbians, the majority of its members were closeted, married women, and for those women, leaving their husbands and committing to lesbian partners was a risky and arduous process the organization helped them with. Women were admitted whether or not they’d at one point truly loved or desired their husbands or other men–the important thing was that they loved women and wanted to explore that desire.
Lesbian groups turned against bisexual and pansexual women as a class in the 1970s and 80s, when radical feminists began to teach that to escape the Patriarchy’s evil influence, women needed to cut themselves off from men entirely. Having relationships with men was “sleeping with the enemy” and colluding with oppression. Many lesbian radical feminists viewed, and still view, bisexuality as a fundamentally disordered condition that makes bisexuals unstable, abusive, anti-feminist, and untrustworthy.
(This despite the fact that radical feminists and political lesbians are actually a small fraction of lesbians and wlw, and lesbians do tend, overall, to have positive attitudes towards bisexuals.)
That process of expelling bi women from lesbian groups with immense prejudice continues to this day and leaves scars on a lot of bi/pan people. A lot of bisexuals, myself included, have an experience of “double discrimination”; we are made to feel unwelcome or invisible both in straight society, and in LGBT spaces. And part of this is because attempts to build a bisexual/pansexual community identity have met with strong resistance from gays and lesbians, so we have far fewer books, resources, histories, icons, organizations, events, and resources than gays and lesbians do, despite numerically outnumbering them..
So every time I hear that phrase, it’s another painful reminder for me of all the experiences I’ve had being rejected by the lesbian community. But bisexual experiences don’t get talked about or signalboosted much,so a lot of young/new lesbians literally haven’t learned this aspect of LGBT+ history.
And once I’ve explained it, I’ve had a heartening number of lesbians go, “That’s not what I wanted to happen, so I’m going to stop saying that.”
Sorry we can’t cbt our way out of the fact that the earth is becoming observably less habitable with each passing year

this post just cant be on its own. it needs the accompanying pic “when you’re level 80” that is exactly the same image, but the stick has glowing runes on it and the crabs are purple
Ok, I had nothing better to do with my monday night
This gets better every time i see it.
has anyone got the version “when you’re level 1 but bought the cosmetic package” and he’s wearing a santa hat and hitting the crabs with a candy cane
Everyone who has heard the term “guerrilla warfare” has also briefly imagined a war made up of gorillas - this is the one connecting thread that every single one of us on this planet share, surpassing race, virtues, culture and more. If you’re ever feeling lonely, know that at one point, all of us thought this very same thought.
Hey OP, you do know that not everyone in the world is a native English speaker right?
No this is news to me
Thanks for the murder thing tho, definitely a balanced, tame reaction to this made-up post that’s clearly not meant to be taken seriously.
Hey, it’s Hershey. We already got our first exciting fan letter! Let’s see what it says
It’s from Forrest. Hi, Forrest! You suggested that we should delete our account on July 17th, 2021.
Well Forrest, I have a suggestion for you. On July 17th, 2021, I suggest you start running.
Fuck you, now you get to see it in video form, because fuck you.

The first funny bitch was Cain, who straight up lied to God after killing his brother.
God: where’s Abel?
Cain: fuck if I know??? I’m not in charge of him
It is TRAGIC that you can’t read this in the original Hebrew.
God: Where’s the Sheepkeeper?
Cain: Do I LOOK like a Brotherkeeper?
God: hey where’s Abel???
He killed his yonger brother in cold blood because he was jealous of him. There is in no way anything funny about this. No hesitation just poped a rock over his turned head, droped his body over the edged and tried to lie to god about what he did. FUCK YALL CRAZIES!!!
oh are those the receipts, Cain is problematic now?
