i am an adult oh god make it stop
When the mirrors and the lights and the smoke clear,
I’d never guess how we ever coulda got here.
You can say what you say when the lights go down,
So shake, shake, shake, and shut your mouth.
Australia really needs to talk about its racism. The government and opposition start banging on on terrorism and all of a sudden it’s hunting-season on innocent Muslim Aussies. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians are too many living in squalor. Indian students are wary of coming here. Home and Away and Neighbours can’t cast a PoC to save their life. People refer to themselves as ‘Australian’ in a way that suggests Vietnamese Australian, Greek Australian, Aboriginal Australian or Korean Australians are something different. We all need to talk about racism and confront it wherever we see it. We need to change the culture, one dumb joke or racist dating preference or school bully at a time.

This week, India became the first Asian nation to reach Mars when its orbiter entered the planet’s orbit on Wednesday — and this is the picture that was seen around the world to mark this historic event. It shows a group of female scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) congratulating one another on the mission’s success.
The picture was widely shared on Twitter where Egyptian journalist and women’s rights activist Mona El-Tahawy tweeted: “Love this pic so much. When was the last time u saw women scientists celebrate space mission?”
In most mission room photos of historic space events or in films about space, women are rarely seen, making this photo both compelling and unique. Of course, ISRO, like many technical agencies, has far to go in terms of achieving gender balance in their workforce. As Rhitu Chatterjee of PRI’s The World observed in an op-ed, only 10 percent of ISRO’s engineers are female.
This fact, however, Chatterjee writes, is “why this new photograph of ISRO’s women scientists is invaluable. It shatters stereotypes about space research and Indian women. It forces society to acknowledge and appreciate the accomplishments of female scientists. And for little girls and young women seeing the picture, I hope it will broaden their horizons, giving them more options for what they can pursue and achieve.”

Halloween falls right in the middle of asexual awareness week.
So, like, I’m not saying asexuals are super awesome skeleton warriors, but let’s look at the facts here…
"i was born in the wrong generation" i say as i steal my grandkids hoverboards because fuck you i was promised these years ago
I just realized that the lack of acceptance for asexuals is literally the dumbest thing.
Like, you can’t handle the thought of two dudes kissing? Okay you’re dumb and terrible whatever.
But you can’t handle the idea… Of someone… Not kissing anyone? What are you worried about? They’re gonna eat too much mac n cheese?? Draw too many dinosaurs??? Tell me
when someone asks if they can draw or write you a thing
