Sea Creature that looks exactly like a rock with guts.
Pyura chilensis is a creature that not only looks like a rock, but is also completely immobile like one too. It eats by sucking in water and filtering out micro-organisms. Its blood also produces a rare element called vanadium.
It is born male, but becomes hermaphroditic at puberty. It also eproduces by tossing clouds of sperm and eggs into the surrounding water and hoping they knock together.
Another fun fact about this creature is that it is consumed. Locals of Chile or Peru (thats where it is found) eat it raw or in stews. They say it tastes “soapy” and "bitter"
Yet another fun fact. This creature is a tunicate, which means it’s in the phylum chordata, which means, it’s related to animals with back bones. Tunicates are thought to be at the base of the evolutionary branch that lead to whales, tigers, crocodiles, eagles, and humans.
Yes, millions of years ago, your ancestor could have quite possibly looked like a rock with guts.
What a beautiful creature. Truly fascinating… at least I think. I have a soft spot for animals anything biology related.
Like, I just don’t see how or why people just shut down when one criticizes Anarchism as a means of praxis. Because it’s really not any good and lacks any pragmatist aspect that would make it work.
You don’t have to be a champion of Stalin or an apologist for the soviet union to realize why Marxist analysis is just a better, more accurate way to analyze and subsequently combat late global capitalism
I mean, hopefully understanding Marxist philosophy and praxis gives you a more correct stance on the Soviet Union or Stalin. From understanding the philosophical roots (Dialectical Materialism and Historical Materialism) you can make a proper analysis.
You can also analyze the class character of anarchism, look at its piss poor praxis and historical execution it’s hard not to dismiss it offhand. It’s philosophy is idealistic and it’s class character is petit-bourgeois. Anti-authoritarianism, and grass roots democratic structures aren’t anti-marxist, as evidenced by the Cultural Revolution so yeah no, I dismiss anarchism because of Marxist analysis.
- sends images of communists shooting people -
"see how fucked up your ideology is?!!"
- is a capitalist -
Yeah but to them, they aren’t culpable for capitalism doing shitty things, that’s a problem with the individuals who do them, not the system…. *procedes to paint with a broad brush about communism*
more of yall need to be marxist-leninist smh everyone out here is anarchist

You say not all men are monsters?
Imagine a bowl of M&Ms. 10% of them are poisoned.
Go ahead. Eat a handful.
Not all M&Ms are poison.
dudes if you post stuff online in support of feminism but don’t call out your friends when they make shitty remarks about women or do anything to create safer spaces in real life than you’re not doing much more than looking for positive attention and patting yourselves on the back
It’s been 49 days since the Connecticut Department of Children and Families imprisoned a sixteen-year-old trans girl of colour without a charge or conviction. She remains in solitary confinement in an adult prison indefinitely. The case is only beginning to receive mainstream national coverage in publications like the Advocate, Salon, and CNN, but more awareness and public outcry is desperately needed in order to free Jane.
To learn more, and stay updated about rallies and demonstrations in support of Jane, follow Justice for Jane on Twitter.

Seriously why the fuck is soviet music so amazing?
I just realized, the choir-style music is an embodiment of Socialist Realist principles, it isn’t just restricted to paintings, statues, and such.
I’d also consider folk music in some cases.
I had my father get sick when I was 22. And I was poor, alright. And my father had an ulcer, and it exploded and you know all these toxins get in your blood. And basically, my father died, whatever, 50 days after his ulcer. So I had a father get sick while I was poor.
My mother got sick when I was rich. And my mother, you know… I don’t really want to get into it, but my mother was sicker than my father. And my mother’s alive. My mother’s fine, OK? I remember going to the hospital to see my mother and wondering, ‘Was I in the right place?’ Like, this was a hotel. Like it had a concierge, man.
People don’t… if the average person really knew the discrepancy in the health care system, there’d be riots in the streets, OK? They would burn this motherfucker down!”
I hate the term equalist because it was created with an agenda. When it was created it softened the blow of the word “feminist. ” the word feminist shouldn’t HAVE a blow to begin with, but it does because of the prefix “fem,” and to be “fem” in a patriarchal society is a slur.
If you consider yourself an equalist then you are a part of the problem and really need to reevaluate why you use that term.
Stop referring to them as “Men’s Rights Activists.”
This legitimizes them by framing their bigotry in the language of progress.
Start referring to them as organized misogynists, rape apologists and proponents of violence against women.
Do not concede a single inch of ideological ground to them.
Do not let them control the discourse.
Allow them no platform.
Allow them no reprieve.
Destroy them completely.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again- these people are to Patriarchy what fascism is to Capital. They are the most thoroughly reactionary group in defense of traditional masculinity. And I believe there’s a capitalist interest since these people didn’t come from nowhere. I ask, under what conditions did this arise?
With that in mind, I would add another term: Gender-Fascist.
So followers, go forth and bash the fash.
