speaking of white boys
they murdered this shit
ok sorry but this is the funniest photo ever. white girl with dreads holding iphone crying about pig being slaughtered while probably not giving a shit about the shitty conditions of migrant workers who get her veggies or even the workers at meat factories who also get treated like shit and exposed to danger every day from unsafe conditions
anyways i used to be vegan and i didn’t reblog this bc like you know how militant vegans can be like
I really can care less about the workers in the factories. I’m all for the animals. I truly believe you have a choice in what you do and slaughter in animals is a choice I don’t believe in. Vegans can be harsh but they have good intentions but it’s also they get harsh criticism as well so you expect them to just take it and not push back? Nope.
"I really could care less about the workers in the factories."
Like did you really just say that? Workers are less important than a pigs life? Ya’ll heard it here first. Lmfao.
Yeah, people who work in slaughter houses were like, “Hm, what do I want to do? There’s banker, CEO, movie star… OH! Slaughter house! Yeah, I almost forgot.”

Fuck yes. Forever reblog.
s/o to my grandad thooo
Reason i dont join the military now
this puts things into perspective
LGBTQIAP+ characters, protagonists with disabilities, more movies with PoC (maybe a few that don’t turn their protags into animals for 90% of the film, yeah? Havent gotten that since the 90s), anything. Literally anything.
This is DISNEY we are talking about. They own 12 different parks and resorts. They own their own TV station. Last year they made $9,964,000,000 in net profit.
There is literally nothing, short of colonizing Mars, that the Disney company can’t do because of financial risk. Get that weak ass bullshit excuse for their lack of diversity away from me.
"They can’t have a queer character because of the financial risk" my ass.
Just saw a post where some guy said thinking all men are potential rapist is like how the judicial system thinks all black and latin@ youth are criminals.
shut the fuck up men you dont have it as bad as PoC omg.
speaking of PoC, how come i never see many MoC who are MRA’s?
Yes people do have it just as bad. How is being accused of being a rapist because your a man any different then being accused of being a criminal because your black?
Yo because you being accused is going to do literally fuck all? Like do you want to roll out and compare statistics for every 100 that end up with jail time (hell even court time, or fuck even a police report)
I bet you MoC racially profiled are ending up in a lot worse a place than ‘wah hurt feelings i’m not a predator’ than men are because women are wary as fuck around them
Love relationship? None. They belong together.
But whenever I write Lois, I like to write how smart people are terrified of her, even if they admire her. She’s LOIS LANE.
So, basically, Lois and anyone she meets.
During the Bubonic Plague, doctors wore these bird-like masks to avoid becoming sick. They would fill the beaks with spices and rose petals, so they wouldn’t have to smell the rotting bodies.
A theory during the Bubonic Plague was that the plague was caused by evil spirits. To scare the spirits away, the masks were intentionally designed to be creepy.
Mission fucking accomplished
Okay so I love this but it doesn’t cover the half of why the design is awesome and actually borders on making sense.
It wasn’t just that they didn’t want to smell the infected and dead, they thought it was crucial to protecting themselves. They had no way of knowing about what actually caused the plague, and so one of the other theories was that the smell of the infected all by itself was evil and could transmit the plague. So not only would they fill their masks with aromatic herbs and flowers, they would also burn fires in public areas, so that the smell of the smoke would “clear the air”. This all related to the miasma theory of contagion, which was one of the major theories out there until the 19th century. And it makes sense, in a way. Plague victims smelled awful, and there’s a general correlation between horrible septic smells and getting horribly sick if you’re around what causes them for too long.
You can see now that we’ve got two different theories as to what caused the plague that were worked into the design. That’s because the whole thing was an attempt by the doctors to cover as many bases as they could think of, and we’re still not done.
The glass eyepieces. They were either darkened or red, not something you generally want to have to contend with when examining patients. But the plague might be spread by eye contact via the evil eye, so best to ward that off too.
The illustration shows a doctor holding a stick. This was an examination tool, that helped the doctors keep some distance between themselves and the infected. They already had gloves on, but the extra level of separation was apparently deemed necessary. You could even take a pulse with it. Or keep people the fuck away from you, which was apparently a documented use.
Finally, the robe. It’s not just to look fancy, the cloth was waxed, as were all of the rest of their clothes. What’s one of the properties of wax? Water-based fluids aren’t absorbed by it. This was the closest you could get to a sterile, fully protecting garment back then. Because at least one person along the line was smart enough to think “Gee, I’d really rather not have the stuff coming out of those weeping sores anywhere on my person”.
So between all of these there’s a real sense that a lot of real thought was put into making sure the doctors were protected, even if they couldn’t exactly be sure from what. They worked with what information they had. And frankly, it’s a great design given what was available! You limit exposure to aspirated liquids, limit exposure to contaminated liquids already present, you limit contact with the infected. You also don’t give fleas any really good place to hop onto. That’s actually useful.
Beyond that, there were contracts the doctors would sign before they even got near a patient. They were to be under quarantine themselves, they wouldn’t treat patients without a custodian monitoring them and helping when something had to be physically contacted, and they would not treat non-plague patients for the duration. There was an actual system in place by the time the plague doctors really became a thing to make sure they didn’t infect anyone either.
These guys were the product of the scientific process at work, and the scientific process made a bitchin’ proto-hazmat suit. And containment protocols!
And that bitchin’ proto-hazmat suit looked like a scary demon birdman.
Shit like this is hilarious, because lol we know more science then them dudes. But then I think about stuff like the giant exoplanet that defies our theories of planetary formation, and the large quasar group whose diameter is over 1000 times the distance between this galaxy and the next which is in direct violation of the cosmological principle which, and I’m like, ‘in 100 years whatever passes as people will be like “lol, they used to shit in water bowls, and stupid little pocket mirrors were they’re best way of connecting with each other. They didn’t even know what it was like to be a part of the Super Organism.”
