and her very being

Advice for a human that's in love with a crytid? I mean, she's wonderful but I have this deep feeling that I'm inferior because I'm human... She'd never want me to feel like this, but I'm a human girl, compared to her...

Most of the very best,, most interesting ,, most powerful ,, caring ,, beautiful beings I’ve ever met have happened to be human, thank you very much . Being one of seven billion doesn’t make you ordinary, it makes you one in seven billion !! I think that is amazing and I think that you should own it .

OMG I just realized something... in those pictures with Lili in the field of flowers that Cole took, one of the pictures she has flowers in her hair, and the other one she doesn't- I'm just imagining Cole arranging those flowers in her hair so they look just right for the photo and idk but that just makes me so happy😁

Hi!

Yeah, I didn’t notice it at first but after staring at the pictures for at least 20 minutes( I have no life…), I finally noticed that! You’re right, picturing Cole placing the flowers and fixing her hair and caressing her face (because he can’t help himself being so close to her) definitively makes me very happy too!

Support women in STEM

Because they’ve advanced the success and growth of those fields for just as long as men, even when they weren’t afforded the opportunity, the recognition, or the grants. Onward:

Rosalind Franklin (July 25, 1920—April 16, 1958)

Rosalind Franklin was a chemist and, get this, X-ray crystallographer. As far as titles go, you can’t do much better than crystallographer. Her work in understanding the molecular structure of DNA laid the foundation for the discovery of the double helix. She also made significant contributions to understanding the structures of RNAs. And viruses. And coal. And graphite. Her work was not fully appreciated until after she passed away. Two teams of all-male scientists who used her work to discover great things later went on to win Nobel Prizes.

Rebecca Lee Crumpler spent most of her professional life being the first at things. She was the very first Black woman to become a physician in the United States. The first (and only) Black woman to graduate from New England Female Medical College. She authored Book of Medical Discourses, one of the very first medical books written by a Black person. Every obstacle she powered through was done in an effort to provide care for other people. Hero. 

Mary Anning (May 21, 1799—March 9, 1847)

Mary Anning discovered the first full Ichthyosaur skeleton at 11,  the very first Plesiosaur at 22, and then opened up her own fossil store front a few years later. We repeat: She opened up her own fossil store. We could go on and on, but Rejected Princesses (@rejectedprincesses​) already did it best in this biographical comic. While you’re over there, check out their whole archive and the dozens and dozens of women’s life stories within.

Follow these too:

  • She Thought It: Crossing Bodies in Sciences and Arts (@shethoughtit​​) is a database dedicated to shedding light on women making strides in both science and the arts. A whole bunch of great things.
  • Lady Scientists of Tumblr (@scientific-women​​) promises everything you could ever want from a feminist science round-up blog: intersectionality and equal representation of all scientists who identify as female. Hell yeah.
  • Math Brain (@ihaveamathbrain​​) backs the novel idea that women are indeed capable of understanding math. Shocking. With the perfect amount of sarcasm, they tackle the idea some bozos have that women just don’t have the mind for mathematics.

Flying with Supergirl is always so great… for most people.

Bonus:

What your father did to you, the choices I had to make.

Shoutout to people having respectful conversations with someone of a different background for the first time.

You do, in fact, sound as awkward as you think you do.  More awkward, actually, because while this is your first conversation like this, it is definitely not the first time for the person you’re talking to, and they may be pretty tired of it.  And you’re stumbling around not sure what words it’s okay for you to use, and what’s okay to bring up, and you may not even be making much sense.

But it’s obvious that you see the person you’re talking to as a fellow person, worthy of respect.  It’s obvious that you’re trying to connect and find common ground.  You’re listening to what they’re saying, and when you say something insulting (which you almost certainly will), you apologize and don’t do it again.

You’re nervous, and yes, it’s obvious that you’re nervous, but you’re still trying.  And it’s okay.  You’ll get better at this.  This is only the first of many conversations like this, and as the novelty wears off, you’ll get better and better at paying more attention to the conversation, and less attention to how you come across.  After a while, this will just be a conversation like any other.

But first, you have to have this first conversation.  Which you’re doing!

Go, you.

This whole scene is testament to how close Lapis and Peridot have now become.

Peridot quips that the barn is their “Gem Cave” but that she doesn’t call it that because Lapis dislikes it, and then does an impression of Lapis’ snoring (whilst Lapis stands, blushing, next to her).  This playful teasing of Lapis is very telling indeed, because it shows how comfortable the pair of them are around each other – Peridot can tease Lapis like this because she knows it won’t offend her, and Lapis doesn’t object to it because she knows Peridot isn’t being serious with her.

They have a very clear understanding of each other and are now happy enough to playfully mock each other like this.  This is one of the very many ways in which they arguably have the dynamic of an old married couple.

The fact that Peridot does an impression of Lapis sleeping carries the implication that Peridot has sat watching Lapis whilst she’s asleep on at least one occasion – which is behaviour often exhibited by couples in a romantic relationship.  Lapis says that she sleeps in the hammock while Peridot describes is as a “bed that you fall out of”, implying that she’s probably tried to get in the hammock with Lapis at some point.

So I’m seriously not supposed to ask any questions right now?

i just remembered one of the first vividly gay moments i had back in highschool when i was in denial. i was friends with two girls who were dating and one of them made the other cry for some reason all the time like all the time. and i was always trying to comfort the one who was crying. and one day i had the thought “i wouldn’t treat you like this.”

and my het™ oriented mind immediately rejected that thought like “too bad she’s a GIRL so you wouldn’t be dating her IN THE FIRST PLACE b/c YOU’RE TOTALLY STRAIGHT.”

when I was in elementary school, this author came to our school for a picture book reading and idr what happened exactly, but i think i wrote him a letter thanking him for coming to our school and i wasn’t expecting him to reply, but he did and told me to ask my mom if it would be okay for him to send me a book, so i wrote back and said yes and the next time he wrote, he included a free autographed copy of the book and i was so excited?? we kinda kept in touch and every time he released a new book, he would send me a copy with some extra goodies like stickers and stuff and he still does to this day and one time he even sent me an autographed copy of one of his friend’s books because the cat’s name was victoria and he “thought of me” and i’m just like THAT’S SO NICE

anyways, we added each other on FB a few years back and i totally forgot because he’s not really active on it, but he just created and added me to a facebook group for his dog and books and i’m just like this is it, i’ve made it LMAOOOO
