some details about this piece: Bakugou styled Uraraka and Tsuyu’s hair. he asked Momo to make some hair decorations (a butterfly clip for Uraraka, b/c she reminds him of a butterfly (both pink and floaty), and a flower for Tsuyu b/c frogs like to sit on those lily pads with those flowers, right??). Bakugou asks Momo to make a lot of hair decorations, clips, etc, because it’s safer than leaving the campus or ordering something online. she enjoys it, and it’s good detail work practice, b/c Bakugou always asks for specific designs
Toshi is just a guinea pig for hair styles, haha. he really enjoys it tho, b/c it feels really nice to have your hair brushed, and it’s something he rarely experiences. (also, headcanon that All Might has a bunch of old t-shirts from his time as a student at UA)
Aoyama saw how amazing Bakugou was with hair and asked him to style his. Bakugou was gruff about it, but he won’t turn people down. tho he does regret styling Aoyama’s hair, b/c his hands were covered in glitter for weeks after.
(Tsuyu likes to watch Bakugou style hair, b/c he seems so different from his usual self, so it’s interesting to watch. Momo also likes to watch, but more because she’s curious about styling hair herself)
(headcanon that Bakugou has a little bag full of hairclips, hair ties, etc, that he keeps in his back pocket at all time)
Just to clarify: “Romantic and sexual orientation can be fluid.” means “They can change over time, and that’s okay!”.
It does not mean “They change for everyone”. Many people identify as the same label their whole life, and that’s okay!
It does not mean “You can simply turn straight if you want”. People can’t “turn”, neither on purpose nor forcefully. It just doesn’t work like that - and it is not necessary to turn anyone straight because being lgbt+ is not wrong!
So, “I thought i was into girls but now i found out i like girls and boys”? - Yayy! That’s cool!
But “You think you like girls now but you’ll change your mind”? - Nope, it’s not okay to tell people things like that.
Only you know how much fluidity (if any) you experience. Other people get no say in that - and fluidity should never be used as an excuse to disrespect someone’s idenity.
look is no one going to talk about the fact that Haggar is Altean???? Like we literally met another Altean besides Allura and Coran and no one is talking about it. And she was right under our noses this whole time, kind of disguising herself. and this brings so many questions to the table. Are there more Alteans out there? If there are, are they hiding or simply minding their own business? do they know about what happened to Altea? Why does Haggar kinda look like actual Galra? Can people turn Galra or is Haggar just kind of doing that shape-shifting thing Allura did in season 1? Is it quintessence? Is it because she’s a witch? are there other Alteans working for Zarkon? If so, are they being forced or doing it willingly, like Haggar? Is Haggar a mix between Altean and Galra, just like Keith is human and Galra? Is there a chance that there are half-human, half-Alteans on Earth? Are there actual Alteans on Earth? Are they hiding? So many questions tbh I can’t wait for season 3
Do you have any non religious arguments against abortion?
Current biology research shows us that, once fertilization takes place in humans, the resulting zygote is an individual organism and a member of the human species. This organism is self-directed, which means it develops from within using its own unique DNA (as opposed to, for instance, how a car is put together one piece at a time).
In fact, for the first week (prior to implantation), the human embryo is not directly connected to the mother, but continues to grow and develop from a single-celled organism to a blastocyst with hundreds of cells that at this point begin to differentiate (different cells are going to develop into different body systems).
The development is gradual and continuous, which means there is no definite point after fertilization where we can say that the human embryo/fetus has become something different that it wasn’t before. All of our descriptions of stages of development and the terms we use are arbitrary and only for our own benefit in understanding what happens.
Birth itself is simply a change in location for the fetus. We change our terminology, but the fetus/newborn doesn’t change in any significant way.
If this is the case, we can easily say that the fetus is a member of the human species.
However, this means nothing if we don’t know how to treat members of the human species. Science cannot answer that question - it can only tell us what the fetus is and what it does. At this point, we have to turn to philosophy and ethics.
Most people can agree that all human adults and human children have human rights and deserve equal treatment.
Most people also agree that while animals should not be abused or neglected, they don’t deserve equal treatment with humans. If they did, the punishment for a hit-and-run would be the same whether the victim was a squirrel or a human toddler.
We have to have a consistent explanation for equal treatment that tells us, without ambiguity, who does and doesn’t have rights.
Our explanation must include human adults and human infants, but exclude animals.
If we base our explanation on ability, such as self-awareness, sentience, verbal ability, etc. we run the risk of either excluding some human adults or infants or including squirrels.
However, if we base our explanation on the common humanity shared by human adults and human infants, we satisfy all three requirements with an explanation that should make sense to us.
This explanation, that all humans deserve equal treatment regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, or ability, means that a human fetus (or even a zygote) deserves equal treatment because it is human.
This means that if it is wrong to intentionally kill a 2-year-old, it is wrong to intentionally kill a fetus, regardless of the fetus’s stage of development. Therefore, if we agree that it should be illegal to kill 2-year-olds, it should also be illegal to kill fetuses.
A law based on this fact would simply be the existing murder statute applied to all human beings equally, as the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution already requires.
This would mean that it would be illegal for abortionists to kill preborn children. The mother of the preborn child would be considered a second victim of a medical professional who chose to violate the law and medical ethics.
tl;dr: Fetuses are biologically human. All human beings have equal rights. Fetuses have the same rights as everybody else.
So I was always a bit curious in that first scene in the Hinterlands at the Crossroads. Solas just kinda wanders off.
Where you going??
Oh hey there are people over there.
Are you … ??
You beautiful Egg
Solas wanders off to help someone hurt during the conflict. This is at the very start of the game and shows his personal motivations before he really gets to know anyone in the Inquisition. The best part is it’s completely in his character the way it’s presented. He’s a figure in the background. Without flycam/paying strict attention we don’t see what he’s up to and can assume he’s just doing a Solas elfy thing or whatever. Or not even notice. Turns out, he’s doing what he always does: caring about people.
Ursula is the best Disney villain. She doesn’t do what she does to take over a kingdom, she just does it cause she enjoys it and happens to get a chance to do it to the daughter of a king she doesn’t like. And what is the thing she does? Use poorly constructed contracts to trap mermaids and turn them into worm people for her worm people garden. Not slaves or anything useful like furniture, just sad worm people that sit in her house and be sad. What a bizarrely specific form of chaos
tbh it always confuses me when people try to write Damas as Serious and Stoic, because like… this is a man who 100% canonically:
wears a skirt with slits up to the hips, exposing his bare, perfectly smooth thighs
probably implanted(?) a crown into his skull, purely for the ~aesthetic~ (or alternatively: glues them on every day?)
takes pecker as his ‘advisor’, despite clearly being a competent leader on his own, and no one questions it (implying that the people of Spargus are used to him doing weird shit like this)
is literally the dad equivalent of tsundere in his interactions with Jak. THE BIGGEST TSUNDADRE.
Pecker: 'oh, are you beginning to care?’ Damas: 'my concern was for the artifacts!’
and my favourite: 'you make me proud! …that…. our training system is so good…’
drives his car through a wall with perfect dramatic timing, casually mowing down several enemies that were about to kill Jak before referring to himself as an entire army
…which comes after he specifically advised Jak against being rash; when Jak calls him on the fact that he ignored his own advice about not taking enemies head-on, Damas responds with 'it depends on how hard your skull is’
actually emotes a lot? like just look at his shit-eating grin as he drops stupid one-liners, or the 'oh shit I fucked up D8’ face when Jak says he never knew his dad; this man is not stoic at all.
Back when he was fresh from Purgatory he couldn’t be sure that what he was seeing was even real, but he knows now that this is not.
Well, except that it is, in a way. Shimmering blue light in the distance, not grace but something else entirely. Real as the far-off twinkle of the stars, beautiful and unreachable in all the same ways. He stares for a very long time into the burning center of wisping shapes, cold and familiar. The heavy expression fixed on the face is endlessly unnerving, like the eyes see right through Dean and into the fabric of the world behind him. Dean always ends up turning his eyes down in shame. Out of grief that he’ll never get to move past.
He bundles himself up in jackets like he had when he was young and just as scared and alone as he feels right now. Swimming in them because of all the weight he’s lost. Not on purpose, it just… happened that way. The joints in his hands stick and crack when he cleans his guns. He takes up smoking again just to get some warmth back in his chest.
We could make this go away, Sam tries to tell him. Dean won’t have it. The chill in his bones is a comfort, and he’ll fight to keep it even if it ends up freezing him from the inside out.
Them in the passenger seat again together. The Impala’s chassis doesn’t balance out the way that it does when there’s two people in there, leaning on the turns and squealing in the wheels, but he can still pretend. He hangs an elbow out the open window and taps his cigarette out onto the oil-slick asphalt. He keeps his eyes straight ahead when they pull up to a red light. He shivers and fights the urge to turn his head, stare into dead eyes.
Dean tried to talk, the first few times. But there’s just not enough of him left to dredge up an answer, Sam thinks, not even the affectionate syllable of a name. There’s not much they can do about that, but Dean loses sleep over it anyway.
It’s Dean’s curse to be haunted by what he wants and loves. Ghosts, sometimes, they’re not tied to things. They’re tied to the people that hold too tightly to them.
So @gryffindorkwinchester and @endgame-sterek were talking about protester!Derek trying to save the wolves, and my little
biologist heart couldn’t resist, so I wrote a little something. I have no idea
how local government works, so just pretend with me, please. While we’re at it,
let’s also pretend wolves still live in northern California.
I like that the actor playing Technical Boy has explicitly said not to get out the violins or feel sorry for his character, because even though Technical Boy is a tragic character none of it excuses his actions
Technical Boy is a fascinating character with how he relates to our world, but I have a deep fear that he’s going to get woobified because he’s a quirky, pretty white boy with sass and I’m really glad his actor shares that caution. Technical Boy is all the whimsy and fun of the internet and technology as well as all the wonder and intellect, but as we’ve seen in his introduction he’s also every nasty, evil, utterly horrific and inherently racist part of it too (he had Shadow lynched ffs, of all the ways to have his ‘children’ kill Shadow he chose something with deeply racist context, so don’t try and say Technical Boy isn’t racist- if its on the internet, it’s Technical Boy)
we’re only just moving onto the second episode so there’s not much out there on tumblr yet but I am bracing myself for the wave of Technical Boy Stans who are going to Snapeify/Lokify/etc. him
I am a Bimbo but that does NOT make me “your” bimbo! Huge turn offs are:
rude entitled people, arrogant and disrespectful!
Huge Turn ons: a GENTLEMAN 👈period !!!
A gentleman will always get my undivided attention every single time 😉💞💞💞💞💋
