the harmful trans agenda. with such ideals as ‘using the bathroom’ and ‘being respected as a human’
If the point of the Big Bang Theory was to show that male nerds can be just as sexist as male jocks then well done I guess
Women in America are more likely to experience sexual assault than they are to give birth to a daughter
Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
So often in English you have either this elevated coldness in academic language, “hipster speak”, or you have this ridiculous lowness in ordinary American conversation, “you know you’re a redneck if…”. Either extreme intellectual pontification or ignorant rants that hit cognitive speed bumps.
What you don’t often have, something that older languages tend to have, is this cultivation of life itself, this edible intoxicating language where the word seems to grow from the experience itself, rather than the experience being dictated by a predetermined word. And that may be why we have so much difficulty in poetry in our time. We force the poem to mean the experience we predetermine. We don’t let the poem grow out of this sensual force beyond ourselves. To do that requires us to be vulnerable, to be open, to be yielding, and there is nothing an American is more afraid of than to yield the floor.
You can affirm this by how many men leave comments on Youtube.
