Butterfly's Wings


Chronically ill, autistic, bisexual, mostly white, feminist, opinionated, academic, lefty scum. Pronouns are she/her/hers.

This blog is a mixed bag of social justice, politics, cool science stuff, pretty pictures, fandoms (such as Star Trek, Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Welcome to Night Vale, Sailor Moon, Avengers, A:TLA/Legend of Korra, My Little Pony, Doctor Who (especially classic Who), Pacific Rim, Game of Thrones, Almost Human, Elementary, Greco-Roman classics), literary quotes, geeky jokes, and pretty much anything else that amuses/interests me or otherwise catches my fancy. Note: Reblogged opinions may not necessarily be ones I agree with. I also reblog ones that I disagree with but still find interesting or thought-provoking.

One day I'll actually go through and properly tag this mess.

Joe Hockey has admitted to New Zealand press that the economic crisis he’s been raving about doesn’t exist. He later then was found in his office cursing himself and moaning. Tony Abbott came in to comfort him.

"I know it’s difficult admitting your bullshit in front of others. That’s why whenever I’m confronted by trying to explain myself I become silent and shake like defective clockwork." Tony attempted to pat Joe reassuringly as he’d read that this was something humans did to show sympathy. He wasn’t entirely sure how to do it though and ended up like one would pat a pet.

"Yeah… what if the voters get word of this? Surely even some of the more gullible ones will notice we’re lying to them through our teeth and-" Joe stopped as he looked up at Tony. "Why the hell do you have a dart embedded in your forehead?

"What dart?" Tony looked down at Joe, confused. "Silly Joe. We’re discussing your failures here, not mine. Now, repeat after me." Tony stared blankly into nothing and started vibrating, his hand still resting softly behind Joe’s ears like a dog being scratched.

A great addition to your garden or back yard. - Bee watering station. 
Bees need water just like we do but often times drown in open water. To make a bee watering station you can either do what is shown in the photo above and fill the bowl of a dog/cat watering jug with stones or you can fill a small dish with marbles and add water to that. That way the bees have something to land on!

This is actually hilarious. Give it a try.

omg why is this quiz so damn wound up about pomegranites

It honestly would take me too damn long to explain all the layers of WHY POMEGRANITES.

Basically, just start googling pomegranates and canaanite religion, pomegranates and symbology within Judaism, pomegranates and symbology in Christianity.

Have a crash course on pomegranate symbolism via wiki.

I’m gonna show you what a girl typically working out would look like versus what you want me to look like 

perfect person award

YES IT’S BACK

She also put on lip stick, eyeliner, let her hair down, and put on hoop earrings.

^ that’s the point of the video, though. This asshat was bitching about how “unfeminine” female Olympians are, when that shouldn’t even be a focus for people. There’s plenty of time for makeup, eyeliner, bikinis, whatever (if that’s their thing!) outside the Olympics.

It’s degrading to female athletes to have their accomplishments pushed to the side, things they’ve worked their whole lives for, and instead be judged on appearance at the one place they shouldn’t be.

^^^ YES. people need to know the context of the shit their about to comment on lol.
