and my U.S. History teacher was trying to get us to understand why it was such a big deal that England had put a tax on colonial sugar, and he goes,

"What if you had to pay a tax every time you logged onto wifi?"

And the whole class just went

and I heard at least two people whisper “I would murder someone”

I will keep reblogging this in the name of historical science

And here I always thought the colonists were overreacting.

GUYS THIS IS IMPORTANT I NEED YOU TO SPREAD THIS LIKE WILDFIRE. THESE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO MESS WITH YOUR POSTS AND MAKE THEM TRIGGERING PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SPREAD THIS IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. HOVER OVER THE LINK AND CHECK IN YOUR LOWER LEFT HAND CORNER OF YOUR BROWSER TO MAKE SURE ITS A GOOD WEBSITE.

Okay followers, if none have ever interacted with me, please just reblog this. I don’t want people to be triggered by things like this

gutcolour:

if you’re cis and you don’t always like being the gender people say you are, that makes sense, because gender is necessarily a rigid and imperfect way of categorizing people. but instead of thinking you have to just deal with it and accept your assigned gender, have you considered: don’t do that. gender is a fake as hell imposition and you don’t have to obey it. follow your gay little heart to greener and freer pastures

In the rare cases where actual psychological differences exist, they cannot be attributed to innate neurology alone. Everything in the brain is a combination of nature and nurture. Culture comes into play, which affects behavior, which then affects the brain. From birth (and even in the womb), a baby is labeled as a girl or boy and treated a certain way as a result. For example, a 2005 study of 386 birth announcements in Canadian newspapers showed that parents tend to say they’re “proud” when it’s a boy and “happy” when it’s a girl. Anne Fausto-Sterling, a biologist at Brown University, has shown that mothers talk to infant girls more than infant boys. This could partly explain why girls tend to have better language skills later on. “Some differences end up fairly entrenched in adult human beings,” Fausto-Sterling says. “But that doesn’t mean that you were born that way or that you were born destined to be that way.”

new ace spectrum word?? if there isnt one already for this??

placiosexual

in which one feels little to no desire to receive sexual acts but expresses interest/desire in performing them on someone else

placio from latin placentes, meaning ‘please’ or ‘to please’. placentes is pronounced like…

so then could we have accisexual? Accipiet (achi-pee-eh) is latin for recieve. So, would like to receive the acts but not perform them. I think I’m that.

(although i can probably think of another word for it…selfish ;-/ )

desperately selling stuff I love

didn’t think it would happen, but things have gotten worse

after an appointment thing, I returned to my car and a tire was flattened

so a garage was called, and a guy came out to help- in the process of removing my tire, he snapped off two of the studs

then he left and didn’t take any responsibility for it ?? and I called my insurance place and got towed to a garage, where I paid $150 for a pair of new studs and a used tire

this is not okay and there is no way that I can afford to get my stuff from columbus (which will be tossed in a week or so?), unless I somehow make a substantial amount of money quickly (like $400??)

another issue is that I don’t have access to most of my possessions, and thus can’t get at any of my rad goodies to sell beyond what I have with me

so I guess I’m selling my Mother 3 Deluxe Box for $400 (with franklin badge, GB micro, and all the inserts, but no cartridge)

and I guess I’m again willing to sell my beloved Ibanez RG1xxv electric guitar with a hardshell case for $875 (the pink on here)

I don’t want to part with either, but I have no other options beyond begging strangers on the internet, which is a thing that I don’t want to make into a habit

please consider signal boosting

Please help Lilith out if you can
