Twenty Amazing Ladies (3/20) - Mary Lambert
“I am a big girl. A voluptuous, curvy, dress-wearing lesbian. I love my body; it’s the only one I’ll ever have. I eat a lot of greens and work out and drink gin martinis and put M&Ms in my froyo and sometimes I don’t do anything but watch Project Runway.I am allowed to look sexy, feel sexy, and be in love. I am worthy of all of those things, and so are you. Own your good and bad, and all the scary parts that you’ve been covering up because it is yours and no amount of judgement can tell you how to love your body. In the words of Sonya Renee, the body is not an apology.
You are magic.”
wow she’s amazing

so the duke and duchess of cambridge have been touring australia and they’ve had aboriginal performances (traditional and not), visited uluru, among other things and it just rubs me so much the wrong way.
we don’t even learn about aboriginal culture and history in school. australian history classes begin with the first fleet and skip all the brutalities to the gold rush and then casually mention the stolen gen while praising all the white men in wwi.
it’s like we don’t want to acknowledge the shit we’ve done in the past or even acknowledge the existence of aboriginal people and culture until some swanky foreigners come ashore and suddenly OH LOOK AT OUR INDIGENOUS CULTURE LOOK HOW DIVERSE AND ACCEPTING WE ARE I AM YOU ARE WE ARE AUSTRALIAN
The Most Intense Color of Any Living Thing on Earth
Also known as the marble berry, Pollia condensata is a wild plant that grows in the forests of several African countries. The berries are not edible, but they have an extremely rare property. They produce the most intense color of any living thing on Earth. Even after the berries have been picked from the plant, they stay the same shiny, vibrant, metallic blue color for many decades.
The vast majority of colors in the biological world are produced by pigments—compounds produced by a living organism that selectively absorb certain wavelengths of light, so that they appear to be the color of whichever wavelengths they reflect.
However, the marble berry’s skin has no pigment. The berries produce their vibrant blue color through nanoscale-sized cellulose strands that scatter light as they interact with one another. Thus the fruit’s color is even visible at the cellular level as pictured above.
imagine a horror movie where you’re trapped in your house with a serial killer but all your lights are clappers
so you’re running for your life from this psychopath while both of you are just aggressively clapping the lights on and off
