Talk about queer coding :D And about how a few dribbles of milk have gathered in the corner of his mouth :)

Hi! So this has the potential to be a very wordy post but I’m gonna keep is brief because I’m already seeing bits and pieces of it in other, existing posts. 

First off! To say milk itself, as a substance, is intrinsically queer coded is actually too presumptuous. It’s more like milk is often used as suggestive/sexual substance, mostly because is visually connotes semen (sorry it’s just true). Go watch Fergie’s M.I.L.F  or Miley’s Dooo It! videos or check out this Nicki Minaj shoot for reference. And there are plenty more where those come from. 

Anyway, because milk ALREADY carries that symbolic weight, it’s common to signal or indicate a male character’s potential queerness using milk. Like a dude chugging a bottle of milk, especially with the little dribble you mentioned…it’s suggestive. Look at the trailer for SKAM’s season three to see exactly what I mean. They straight up introduced the theme of Isak’s sexuality with an carton of milk exploding in slow-mo all over his face while he watches a bunch of sweaty boys whip each other with towels in a locker room. 

Possibly the most famous and relevant example of milk queering a character is in Rebel Without a Cause, which is in many ways still famous because it has one of the most obvious portrayals of queer youth in Hay’s code era cinema. (Not to mention it’s queer director and queer actors!) In Rebel, there’s this super memorable scene where Jim, Jame’s Dean’s character, takes a long swig from a glass milk bottle before sensually pressing it to his cheek, as if to cool himself down. It’s very sexy and very suggestive and that character is definitely struggling with his sexuality for the duration of the film. Plus, James Dean is bisexual and was well aware of the intention/signaling behind that role/gesture. 

Also, If you want to read more about how Rebel is super gay, here’s a good concise summary. 

In conclusion! I don’t think the photographer or anyone involved in that shoot necessarily meant for it to seem queer or sexy or sexy in a specifically queer way. I don’t know if it’s a Rebel Without a Cause reference or not. I just know when I saw that pictures my eyes got really big and I started sweating and blushing, and here’s why!!!

yoooooo @ the Portal tags

you know, I’d really enjoy it if we stopped acting like it needs to be Wheatley vs. GLaDOS 100% of the time always and forever

if everybody could just chill tf out and take it easy over the fictional robots that’d be great

lifehack: if you ever feel like articulating a nasty to “The Other Team”

then simply take a nap instead

it’s so much nicer and less of a hassle and better for your health and also less insulting to such a good game

Human DNA: What you need to know

DNA is important. We all know that, and it is heavily featured as evidence is modern crime investigation. So we thought we should get around to giving a bit of a primer on basic DNA structure, and the reason why DNA is considered a building block of life.

DNA Structure

DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid, it is a molecule that carries genetic instructions for all known living things. It is made up of a sugar (deoxyribose), a phosphate group, and one of the four nucleotide bases.

4 nucleotide bases:

Purines: adenine (A), guanine (G)

Pyrimidines: thymine (T), cytosine (C )

It is structured as a double helix (2 strands) running antiparallel to each other (running from the 5’ end to the 3’ end), with the bases pairing up with each other as A-T/C-G using hydrogen bonding.

(picture from Wikipedia)

The structures can get a little bit more complex. DNA can be double-stranded (dsDNA) or denature to single-stranded (ssDNA), and it can be relaxed or supercoiled. DNA has a lot of mechanism to ensure that it is replicated correctly, and passed on to the future progeny.

The Central Dogma of Biology and Genetics

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) codes RNA (ribonucleic acid) which codes to proteins, through the process of replication, transcription, translation.

In the nucleus, DNA is replicated from the template strand. Incidentally, the replication process is also important for passing on genetic material to future progeny. It is then transcribed to RNA strand (technically a messenger RNA/mRNA) which can leave the nucleus. During this phase, thymine (T) is replaced by uracil (U). During translation, three RNA bases = one codon. And each codon codes for a different amino acid. The amino acids are stringed together, and depending on the folding and interactions with other amino acid chains, can become different proteins with distinct functions.

I’m so so sorry for the lack of posts lately folks. I have 2 more days before I’m leaving to my trip to the Coursing Championships and my head is aleady spinning. I hope I can prepare some more posts before I leave. I will take my laptop with me, but I doubt I will have much time once I arrive. Wish us luck, good runs and healthy paws!

oh a random slice of life from visiting my sister in Maryland. It was me, my older sister the Lt. Col. (who just moved to MD from GA), and Middle-Little sister, and we were painting Lt. Col. Sister’s middle son’s room in the new house. It had wood-panel walls and glossy black trim, it had to go before the child could really live there, he’s a seven-year-old ball of sunshine and can’t be subjected to wood paneling. So we painted it all in shades of blue and it took forgoddamnever.

At one point someone brought up the thing about the Gay Cousin– you know, how there’s always one– and how our group of cousins is so white-bread that I’m the closest thing we have. And yeah, I mean, I’m a whole person, so I count, but I’m so invisibly queer, I’ve had the same dude for 15 years now and nobody realizes. 

As if to prove the point, Lt. Col. Husband was standing in the doorway with a beer, having just put the kids to bed, and said, “Wait, in what way are you the gay cousin???” 

I’ve known the guy a decade. “I’m bi,” I said. “I was pretty serious with a woman before Dude. I’m clearly not super into getting around, but I’m definitely not a straight person either.”

He was like, “does that count??” and to their credit, both of my sisters were like, “yes that counts what is wrong with you”, and he sort of went off and stood in the corner with his feathers all ruffled for a moment. 

Buddy, I’m the sister that likes you, don’t screw this up. And also, yet more testament to the fact that if you don’t know any gay people, it’s because you’re not paying attention.

This narrative of how you Come Out one time and then you’re Gay Forever is like, the least true thing ever to become a narrative trope… 

Also he tried to argue about the upcoming cakes for gays Supreme Court case on the basis of homophobia being a 2,000-year-old religious practice and i was like are you seriously reducing all of Christianity to homophobia maybe crack a Bible sometime and read the bit where Jesus actually talked, it might open your eyes. Also if it’s cool to refuse cakes for gays, why can’t lunch counters be whites only too? I mean what kind of America are you arguing to live in, here? 

I got the feeling he was doing the white dude arguing for the sake of arguing thing that’s so fucking obnoxious, but I was Not Having It so we didn’t get far into that. I told him to let me paint his child’s bedroom in peace.

When America goes to visit Canada and they go outside, Canada always wears a warm coat a few sizes too big for him. He knows that America always underestimates the climate and wears clothes that aren’t warm enough, but he can’t really stand the cold, not the way Canada can. They inevitably end up  swapping coats.

▪ How do they behave around people they dislike?

Everyone knows Rosie for her chipper nature, so this is a pretty good chance to show the other side.

She knows she’s gotta be mature about it, but being around someone she dislikes will result in a different personality to come out. She ain’t all loud and openly nasty, but instead tight lipped smiling, brows always knit together , and she looks like she’s always gritting her teeth.

Rosie amongst people she dislikes mean she will be quiet, analytical, critical of that person… smiling, although she’s likely plotting some way to make your death look like an accident.

Advice: Don’t be a person Rosie dislikes. You’ll be a rare case that won’t last very long if you don’t have any major worth.
