So wait, Laika used same-sex couples in their trailers but not in the actual movie?

That’s… not cool.

And almost like they were using the the progressive rep they’d earned from a single joke in ParaNorman to promote their next movie without any intention of actually following through and providing positive queer representation in the actual narrative.

Okay. Duly noted.

Yeah. That and with the other transmisogynist crap that IS in the actual movie? It’s incredibly disappointing.

"Up to 11 men, all between the ages of 39 and 74 will sit at the table for a domestic violence discussion on ESPN. Zero women. Victims of domestic violence in America are most likely to be women aged 20-24. When the show has updates from the field—brief reports about injuries and the upcoming game—they’ll cut to female sideline reporters, Lisa Salters and, on some weeks, Suzy Kolber. These people are not allowed at the table."

DOGS AND CATS CANNOT BE VEGETARIANS!! OCCASIONAL pieces of vegetable are ok, but not all the time

BUT NOT FOR CATS. CATS ARE STRICTLY CARNIVORES. THEIR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM CANNOT HANDLE PLANT MATTER.

This is why, if you catch your cat eating grass, it is EATING GRASS BECAUSE IT FEELS ILL AND WANTS TO MAKE ITSELF THROW UP TO POSSIBLY GET THE BAD THINGS OUT OF ITS TUMMY. It is NOT eating grass because “omnivore”!! Cats are CARNIVORES.

Not entirely true. Cats eat grass for a variety of reasons. Sure, they can eat grass to make them throw up. They can also eat grass to get more folic acid in their diet. They can eat it to soothe a sore throat. They can eat it to help with digestion because of some of the enzymes in grass that helps them digest things…there are a variety of reasons. They can’t eat ONLY vegetables, but a little bit of grass eating is not indicative of a health problem.

Success! India’s First Mars Probe Is In Orbit And Working
“India has managed to do what few other nations have accomplished: putting a satellite into orbit around another planet — and it did so a lot cheaper than the competition.
The $70 million Mangalyaan, or “Mars craft” in Hindi, began circling Mars after a 24-minute engine burn to slow it down enough to be captured by the Red Planet’s gravity.”
Read more from NPR.


YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES SPACE

It’s not just that the satellite is cheaper, but that they focused on finding answers to questions that hadn’t been answered AND which could be answered cheaply AND which compliments other nations’ scientific research into Mars.This was, in short, a very well-realized space expedition. India deserves all the attention.

A quick PSA, because working in a New Age store I realize a lot of people don’t know this.  Keep in mind this is the simple version.

The fella on the left-hand side, that’s Gautama Buddha, the Buddha, the central figure in Buddhism.  Note that he is not considered a god, but a teacher and spiritual leader, the first to attain Enlightenment in his era.  Note also how thin he is.  This is because the Buddha fasted a lot.  He was born Siddhartha Gautama.  Buddha is a title, and not actually his name.

The fella on the right-hand side is not Buddha.  This is a common misconception in the West.  That is Hotai (or Budai or Hotei depending on the language), a Buddhist monk from China and folkloric hero.  Hotai is thought by many to be a Buddha, but he is not the Buddha.  Unlike Buddha, Hotai actually is revered as a god in Chinese folklore, although not in Buddhist practice.

This post is based on things I’ve been taught by my Buddhist coworker but if I forgot or mixed up something important and you are Buddhist and you notice, please let me know.

This has been an informational post.  Have a nice day.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD EVERYONE READ THIS. READ IT. LEARN IT. PREACH IT.

I AM SO TIRED OF EVERYONE BELIEVING THIS MISCONCEPTION.

When I first got my glasses I found out streetlights actually were attached to something! They just looked like floating balls of fuzzy light before.
