    stop comparing your children to some imaginary counterpart without autism. love your whole, autistic child. love their stims, comfort them when they meltdown, love the way they communicate, help them when they need it. love your own children, the ones that are right in front of you!

    Y’know what, no, I want a game like Dragon Age except instead of all of this Euro-Inspired fantasy, I want Aztec architecture and lore and obsidian mirrors, flying serpents, piles of teeth and hair scattered in haunted dungeons, time/space paradoxes and cool UI assets with calendars and star mapping and a hairless dog companion named Spider.

    Also none of that appropriative or homogeneous bullshit, the empire in the game is made up of all sorts of different HUMAnS wITH CUSTOMS AND CULTURES and there are maybe elf-like people and same standard fantasy garbage only its better cos IT’S nOT STAndARD EuRO

    and evryone is romanceable all the time forever unless they are dead and also theres nonbinary characters

    ALSO UNLOCKABLE WAR PUGS DAMNIT SHHH this is just wish fulfillment at this point but jfc someone get on this

    Tiny Dinosaur wanted to help out with awareness so he made a tiny presentation.
    Suggestions for improvements are very welcome, he has never made a presentation about asexuality before and he wants to make sure  he gets it right.

    44% of the audience of Guardians of the Galaxy is female and all the speculation states that women went to see it for Chris Pratt’s body. I don’t think that’s fair. Maybe (and this is crazy) they just like kickass movies with space shit and explosions. Maybe women can do things without men being their motivation. Maybe.

Finally, thank you.

this poster literally explains how it coincides with seasons though — “decreased sun exposure & water intake” which presumes fall and winter. nooot to mention the fact that this is silly: it would mean flu “season” doesn’t exist in Arizona which has around 360-363 days of sunshine. 
the influenza virus survives best in cold, dry air — i.e. fall - winter months are its perfect breeding grounds. (Also why it happens seasonally in the southwest!) Hence, tropical countries have “even” flu distributions whereas pretty much everywhere else sees a spike in influenza (seasonal flu) with the seasons. 
also the lowered rate of exposure to sunlight (vitamin D) is entirely dependent on seasons and geographic regions. it’s why flu season is on a “different schedule” in the southern hemisphere. 
lack of sun exposure, increased sugar intakes, less water intake, and stress are just GENERALLY bad for your immune system overall. Monitoring these things & taking care of your self just means a general boost to your immune system it does NOT create flu resistance. That is why the flu shot/spray exists. Flu resistance is NOT just having a good immune system. 
Please don’t believe you will be immune if you drink water and take vitamins. the flu is VERY seasonally based for those who don’t live in tropical regions and the best way to resist it is to get your flu shot. 
ESPECIALLY (if like me) your are asthmatic or otherwise immuno-compromised.
the flu is NOT your inability to adapt. Influenza is a virus which survives best in cold, dry climates, and thus hits most areas hardest in the fall and winter (and early spring), particularly from December onwards. It will attack your immune system and having a good immune system will pretty much only help you bounce back from catching the flu faster. It will not prevent you from getting the flu. Getting the flu shot, however, will raise your resistance and immunity. 

Reblog this version instead because jesus christ, Tumblr spreading horrible misinformation OR JUST SIMPLIFYING IT SO YOU DON’T WORRY AS MUcH. The flu is really fricking serious for some people. Get ur shot.

    hyenas, terrifying and excellently organized predators of the savannah

    also surprisingly docile and like neck scritches and have a tail chasing compulsion

    if you don’t think hyenas are great then you’re objectively wrong

    Aaaahhh, I love hyenas. :D

    Hyenas: Always getting a bad rap because lions are jerks. Lions actually steal from hyenas most of the time because hyenas are the better predators — but they’re also very skittish when faced with a giant pride of cats. Adorable babies!

    Okay, lemme tell you about spotted hyenas, aka the BAMFiest BAMFs in the animal kingdom.

    1. Their societies are entirely female-dominated. Female hyenas are larger and stronger than males and have higher social status in clan hierarchy - even the lowest-ranking female in a hyena clan is higher up the social ladder than the highest-ranking male. They’re basically the Amazons of the animal world. The females even have false penis-like appendages (which are essentially large clitorises), which led the ancient Greeks to think that hyenas were hermaphrodites. Because fuck your narrow human perceptions of sex and gender roles, that’s why.
    2. They are considered the dominant predators of the African savannah, despite not being the largest or strongest, because they are the most successful hunters. Their hunting success rate is estimated to be about 70-80%, meaning that they catch about 70-80% of prey they pursue - a freakishly high statistic (to compare, the success rate of lions and wolves is about 20-30%). They also scavenge much less than lions do, as whowasntthere said, and are incredibly adaptable and opportunistic predators, meaning that they are also the most common and widespread of the large African carnivores. That’s not too bad for an animal typecast as a lazy scavenger.
    3. Their jaws are some of the strongest in the animal kingdom, stronger than those of lions, tigers, wolves or perhaps bears, and can crush elephant and giraffe bones; hyenas are also able to digest all bone matter. Don’t tell me that’s not metal as fuck.
    4. Despite looking like dogs, they are not part of the dog family and are actually more closely related to cats. Because fuck your logic. Nature does what it wants.
    5. They are incredibly intelligent. They are easily as intelligent as primates and some scientists claim that their intelligence may even rival that of the great apes, which would make them among the most intelligent animals in the world. Hyenas even outperform chimpanzees on some tests, which is pretty damn awesome, considering that chimpanzees are our closest relatives and all.

    So yeah, basically hyenas are awesome and badass as well as truly fascinating animals and if you don’t have at least a bit of respect for them you’re wrong.

    historical-nonfiction:

    Several of Aristotle’s writings have survived only by a fortunate chance. Around 80 B.C., the men of a Roman army invading Asia Minor found a number of manuscripts of Aristotle’s works in a pit and brought them to their general, Sulla. It turned out that no other copies of many of them existed, and Sulla had them taken to Rome and recopied
