Marriage equality is cool and all, but uh…

Trickle down equality, yo!

the next targets.

Um well…freedom of speech DO give people the right to argue anything…

The real question is whether authorities and the public considers the arguments valid.

How to knit a little gun - A down and dirty knit along.  Here it is, those of you who have been asking. The usual caveat - Knitpool is an inexperienced pattern transcriber and may have assumed some knitting experience. Just ask if you get stuck or see something that needs correcting. Thanks and practice gun safety!

Ever hear the term “SJW”? It means “social justice warrior,” and it refers specifically to people who point out racism or sexism in movies, video games, and other pop culture. Those people are considered worse than other types of critics because instead of just pointing out that a movie has flaws, they’re accusing people who like it of being awful.

Except they’re not, of course. If someone points out that the alternator belt in your car is slipping, they’re not accusing you of being some kind of mustache-twirling, white cat-stroking supervillain for having car problems. They’re not accusing you of anything. They’re talking about your fucking car.

I don’t know what’s been happening over at Cracked lately, but damn.

The only thing better this stuff on cracked is the people whining about cracked “selling out” in the comments.

I enjoy their impotent misery.

Nah. People use SJ on those who point out problems with racism, bigotry, homophobia and such. And those people are needed and respected by many.

SJW is denomination those who violently attack others blaming them for breaking the social norms, without having much reason or ressources of thir claims.

The AMAZING Regina Flath at Simon & Schuster sent me these INCREDIBLE new copies of the Lioness Quartet. It has a new afterword by Tammy!!

I can’t stop staring at the beauty of these new covers.

Wow those are amazing.

Most of the covers for the Alanna books have been kind of bad.

Wow, non bad covers! Amazing.

Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome

If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.

If you are healthy, please reblog.
If you are sick, please reblog.
If you have a disability, please reblog.
If you have an invisible illness, please reblog.
If you know someone with a disability, please reblog.
If you are a human being, please reblog.

Let’s spread the word and help those of us that may not look like it. 

Ignorance isn’t bliss, ignorance is ignorance. 

And people ask me why I am afraid to use my cane in public.

Being disabled, visibly so is always dangerous

When I got my first cane and posted about it, I had people demanding to know why I thought I “deserved” it at my age.

That was the word.


This is the kind of bullshit that made my dad, a man who dealt with crippling pain from degenerative disc disorder, afraid to apply for handicapped parking

I remember saying to him that he could get handicapped plates and hearing him say that it wasn’t “bad enough” as I watched him wince and hobble as he walked from the back of the parking lot

People internalize these ideas, even handicapped people, that’s why this is so fucking important

I use a cane when I’m outside because of fatigue and balance issues. It helps me stay on my feet longer and not fall over. I get dirty looks and rude stares literally every time I’m around strangers, because I’m not (usually) visually limping, because I’m not putting my weight on it 100% of the time, because I’m too young to look like I need it. Because obviously my cheap-ass not-pretty-at-all cane is a fashion statement, or a ploy for attention, or something. People are terrible.

I was flying recently with a friend, and we had all kinds of fun traveling.  We had been on the tarmac a while and were told we’d been on it another while when she checked her blood sugar and realized it was going down fast.  (She had thought she would be good until beverage service, not realizing we would be bumped to #7 in the takeoff queue twice.)  She asked the hostess for a drink, explaining her reasons, and the hostess, being a very nice person, brought her a snack box as well.  A little later my friend heard the women in the seat across from us to the rear tell each other she had just “pretended” to be diabetic to get the snack box that she hadn’t even asked for.  I wanted to punch them.

A fast and loose fantasy classification guideline.

So Death Ghidorah and Kaiser Ghidorah are dragons but King Ghidorah’s a wyvern? Well, my world is shattered.

I think he’s more of a Hydra than a Dragon, since he has three heads and all

This post actually has me breathing heavy. 


To be fair, “The Wyvernborn” just doesn’t have the same ring.

Pedantic classification of things that don’t exist is a little pet peeve of mine.

All dragons that have no wings.

A Wyvern from the TV show Merlin, count the legs.

A Wyvern concept art from Dragon Age, again with four legs (and the in game model is the same).

There’s also a thing called the Guivre (similar to a Wyrm) which is “supposed” to be a no-legged dragon, but is hardly ever rendered as such.

Also note a “hydra” is not a dragon with more than one head, it’s not a dragon to start with. It is a giant serpent that regrows two or more heads from each stump when they are cut off.

TL;DR - People shouldn’t try to classify mythological creatures as if they were real because none of it is based in reality. People can and do use this stuff as if it were interchangeable.

Has no legs but wings: Is a Linworm

Has no legs and no wings is a Worm

Reject the mainstream machine of misinformation.

News is entertainment. We let it become that. It’s not going to stop being that. I’ve seen how this sausage is made. There are some very hardworking people who want to tell you what’s really happening, and those people are completely beat down and trampled by people trying to make money by telling you whatever you want to hear so long as you sit through the ads and make them money.

The internet has its own flaws. Misinformation is just as rampant, it just typically isn’t for profit, unless you can pay rent with “teh lulz” or the satisfaction that your lies will keep those uppity minorities down.

Always be skeptical. Always seek out information from many different sources. Take nothing at face value. Question things constantly.
