(are these still a thing? actually wait i don’t care?)
i already put this one in another post, but it’s my favorite so ~here you go~ [x]
it sucks when you have a bad teacher for a subject you’re genuinely interested in
I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -
Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.
Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.
If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.
And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.❞

So alot of people know I like Gone, so here’s a little blurb about the relationships.
If you’ve read the book, you know that it’s in the YA section in stores. As it should be. But you know why it’s so different? Because they don’t primarily focus on the relationship. They focus on the problem.
Like obviously Sam and Astrid are cannon from the get-go. And it only focuses on the initial “how do I exit the friendzone” in the first book. But though I dislike the characters, you know that relationship is healthy, and steadily grows throughout the series.
But the books main relationship isn’t even the obvious one. It’s the broken one of Caine and Diana.
Caine and Diana are in the opposite, a rather unhealthy relationship where no one can express their feelings to the other. The books could easily focus on Caine and Diana, seeing their mindsets together. But the book DOESN’T focus on their heartbreaking story that got the best of almost everyone reading it by the end. He could finally accept his feelings for her, but knew he was an awful person who did horrible things. He KNEW who he was. He sacraficed himself, knowing he couldn’t take away the pain he gave her. The book by the end could have easily been about those two, but it wasn’t.
I could go on about the sub-plots of implied relationships or other ones that the book could easily veer off to.
Edilio and Roger.
Jack and Brianna.
Dekka and Brianna.
Lana and Sanjit.
But the reason that this book is so good is because it’s not a strong female lead with the actual problem at hand on the backburner as she tries to decide between two hot guys who are in love with her. (Or vise versa. Any relationship really, but that seems to be the trend right now.)
No one goes: “hold on a sec Gaia I need to pick my new love interest.”
Or: “Drake please I’m having a crisis choose me a chapter from now.”
The book is honest, with people who have flaws, and that is why everyone should read it through.

I’d rather you not reblog my art than remove the warning, thank you.
So during the wtnv livestream last night the-secret-police-of-night-vale said something really funny about Cecil having a weather button and I had an extreme need to draw it. :)
