Forgive me, Mr. Takei.  I think it’s beautiful.

That appears to be in the Brisbane Art Gallery, so maybe it wasn’t actually real? If it was, surely it should’ve been in the Museum, not there.

the titanoboa existed, and was about 12m long. maybe it was in the art gallery because its a sculpture, not an actual skeleton?
or maybe giant skeletal snakes go where they please

Oooooo, that’s awesome. I vote that giant skeletal snakes go where they please, and why would you go to the museum when you can hang out over that lovely pond thing.

Historian and Feminist Scholar Gerda Lerner

When women were campaigning for the right to vote, they’d go on hunger strikes.

And what the police would do would be to grab them up, tie them to a chair, and ram a feeding tube down their throat. The clamps and tubes they used tore up the womens’ mouths. Sometimes the tube would go into the woman’s lungs. Then the woman might die of pneumonia. After women dying in jail became distasteful, they’d let the ill women go for a short period to recuperate in the community, then come and arrest them again.

Also suffragette protestors were beaten. Viciously. By the police. There’s all these pictures of smiling suffragettes having parades— they were risking their lives, some of them died. The police would come and beat them and sexually assault them. There aren’t many pictures of that, the newspapers wouldn’t run them, or the local government wouldn’t let them. 

They also chained themselves to shit, they set buildings on fire and smashed in windows, they followed politicians around shouting abuse, this one british woman threw herself under king george’s horse to be a martyr—they were violent. They were met with violence and they replied with violence. And a lot of them died. 

Then black women had to fight the same fucking fight all over again. 

That’s what  I think about when men say they gave us the right to vote.

I have read 671 whole books/comics in the last ten years. 

I have read the most books/comics by Neil Gaiman, followed by Terry Pratchett, Philip K Dick, Douglas Adams and Isaac Asimov. 

I made a spreadsheet. Someday I will extract more statistical information from this.

I didn’t know Kel had talked about this.

I am an awful, awful human being.

(The artist took it very well, considering.)

(And it totally got fixed.)

guyplayfair said: If you could hug any Doctor Who writer, which one would you hug? I think personally I would go for Robert Shearman, he looks cuddly and that beard would probably feel nice rubbing on your head. Russell T Davies also looks quite huggable but his propensity towards suits and lack of facial hair might not make it as pleasurable as Mr Shearman.

neil-gaiman:

I would like to hug all the women who have written for Doctor Who since 2008. All of them! I would start with…

What, nobody?  That can’t be right…. (goes off, puzzled).

DOUGLAS ADAMS! I WOULD HUG DOUGLAS ADAMS BECAUSE IF I WAS ABLE TO HUG HIM IT WOULD MEAN HE WAS ALIVE 

Sorry Neil, you’re also great. You’d be second.

Also someone hire a woman to write some good SF.

Cyber harassment study reveals the unsurprising!
It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…

That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.

"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”
"Aha! We knew it!" 
“Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”
"Wait, what?"
