why test on animals when there are prisons full of rapists

because the prisons aren’t actually full of rapists

the rapists run free and the prisons are full of people charged with weed possession

and we shouldn’t do experiments on human beings without their consent no matter who they are, because this already happened and still happens to marginalised groups in and outside of prison and frankly it’s terrifying that the people responsible for this were able to do that and mostly got away with it, I know education on ableism, racism, history and ethics is pretty bad worldwide right now but come on

and prisons tend to be a reflection of classism and racism.  but especially ^ that comment ^

being vegan is cool except for when people who don’t know anything about it suddenly become nutrition experts and moral philosophers and get all up in your ass

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.

Michael Newton is an artist located in Manchester, England.

My oil paintings explore aspects of MELANCHOLIA using traditional methods of oil paint on canvas and on wooden panels. I work initially from pen and ink drawings that combine elements of my own figurative drawing with my photographs and found images. Working directly onto the support with oil glazes, I use these subverted images as the basis for a loose and immediate style of painting. Consequently the oil paintings have a freshness of execution despite the melancholic themes.

I’d beat the exact same amount of shit out of a pro-Palestine anti-Semite as an anti-Palestine anti-semite.

Bigotry in the name of freedom? Take a second look.

You’re god damn right

#no respect or support whatsoever for anarchists who tolerate casual antisemitism in palestinian advocacy

We comprehend time because it’s measurable thanks to space, mass, and energy, except we can only measure it because things repeat, but in another universe those things could not exist and time would still exist but it would be unmeasurable and something can exist without being measurable also time is semi finite, it is only finite on one side. thanks, enjoy your existential crisis. If I’m going down I’m taking you fuckers with me.

hello-missmayhem:

all that’s happening is that beauty companies have realized that “progressive” and “empowering” advertisements garner more publicity and create more brand loyalty than the old-fashioned “you’re ugly if you don’t buy our product” advertising. it has nothing to do with ethical capitalism or social trends. the beauty industry is just trying to make money.

restless leg syndrome is the fucking devil.  

i haven’t had issues with it in quite awhile but tonight i’m pretty sure i’m going to hacksaw my legs off.

:(

Feeling that hacksaw desire right now

I woke up sick and just got worse throughout the day. But! I actually left work early. I don’t know if this is me growing up + thinking getting better is the priority or if I just really dislike a job and feel no dedication to work hard.

Actually it’s the latter of those two. Definitely the latter.
