Did you know that we’ve been in the middle of a Loch Ness Monster sighting drought? Last year marked the first time in almost 90 years that Nessie hadn’t been spotted for an entire year. In fact, there hadn’t been any ‘confirmed sightings’ of the elusive cryptid for 18 months, leading some veteran spotters to voice concern that perhaps the famous monster had finally given up the ghost.
But wait! Something awesome just happened: Two different people, both using Apple Maps, captured screenshots of something measuring approximately 100ft long, with what appear to be two large flippers, powering along just under the surface of the loch. Experts from the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club have been studying the images and Gary Campbell, club president, reports that they’ve been steadily ruling out alternative explanations, leaving it increasingly likely that these images are brand new ‘confirmed sightings’:
‘We’ve been looking at it for a long time trying to work out exactly what it is. It looks like a boat wake, but the boat is missing. You can see some boats moored at the shore, but there isn’t one here. We’ve shown it to boat experts and they don’t know what it is. Whatever this is, it is under the water and heading south, so unless there have been secret submarine trials going on in the loch, the size of the object would make it likely to be Nessie.’
‘Now that we have spies in the skies above Loch Ness, maybe we will get more sightings which will whet the appetite of more down to earth Nessie hunters to come north. Furthermore, the use of satellite technology means that if Nessie is just swimming below the surface like in this case, we can still pick her up.’

October is a month away?
IT’S TIME TO…
I like GoT a lot but whenever I read/watch it I get the feeling that the underarching message is that the only way to survive in the world is to be calculating and cold hearted and project suffering onto other people so you can claw your way ahead and like I get that that doesn’t mean that rr martin thinks that’s the way the real world oughta be but its sOOOOO HARD to slog through so much plot where every kind and gentle person gets fucking trashed bc WEAK IDEALISM!!
tolkein and cooper and other authors in their vein tend to go a little far in the opposite direction but like…i can reread and rewatch that stuff a billion times because i don’t feel like if i lived in that world that i would get turned into bloody fertilizer which is what would happen if i were in GoT
Unless I’m exhibiting symptoms of blood sugar issues I’ve never had or my inner ears are inverted I think this entire day has been colored by anxiety symptoms
like in the morning I had the usual ‘not getting enough air’ feeling that happens sometimes but it took a lot longer to get under control, I felt like my heartrate wasn’t high enough, I’ve felt dizzy on and off all day and even though I’m eating and drinking and I went out on an errand to make sure it wasn’t lack of activity I still feel weird and gross
Does anyone ever have physical anxiety symptoms that last this long?? It doesn’t feel emotional like my issues normally are but I felt like I was gonna pass out earlier today and I’m not sure what’s going on

Sharkboy and Lavagirl dreams?
bryson you are uniNVITED FROM MY LIFE
- Sexism - and the word “men” - groups together white men with men of color, cis men with trans men, abled men with disabled men, etc. It means that a a queer trans man of color can oppress a white cishet woman.
- Heterosexism - and the word “heterosexual” -…
So what you’re saying is no one should ever discuss certain groups privilege over other groups because their anti-privileges (not sure of exactly the right word here) might outweigh their privileges? That makes no sense.
I think OP was trying to show the ridiculousness of singling out the term monosexism, and saying that if you think monosexism is a ridiculous term, then if you follow logic you should think all of those other terms mentioned are also ridiculous
OP was saying that the term monosexism is just as valid a term as the other ones listed, and that none of those cover all axes of oppression, but that’s ok, because there shouldn’t be one term used for all axes of oppression bc oppression manifests itself in different ways depending on the situation
Thank you! That was a really great explanation :)
Reblogged for extra clarification because sometimes irony doesn’t work well in text.
i can’t count the number of times i’ve seen lesbians in the bisexual tag saying that gay people can’t have monosexual privilege because they don’t have institutional power over bisexuals only straight people do so therefore monosexual privilege doesn’t exist. and i just wanted to say well black men and white women done have the institutional power that white men have but they still have male privilege and white privilege respectively
Good point! Thanks!
I actually have a lot of dreams about ‘shark men with decent intentions but are full of teeth and morals based on eating everything’
Had a dream about a shark-guy who like, caught a young selkie and let it go on this abandoned island surrounded by gulper-eel-whale-things and apparently in return for not eating her she had to stay there and not go in the water again…I feel like it was less ‘malicious imprisonment’ and ‘i’m a shark and idfk how friends work’
