how the hell did we get the idea pink isn’t a cool colour
because scientifically speaking pink doesn’t even exist; it fits between violet and red on the spectrum but actually what goes there is infrared and ultraviolet and all those things we can’t see
pink is the ambassador of an otherworldly and unknowable realm it is the most badass colour out there
50 species of lizard and one species of snake reproduce through parthenogenesis (that’s the fancy word for producing offspring as a female without having sex).
Whiptails are stimulation ovulators. That is to say, they can’t ovulate without having sex.
So not only do they are give birth through immaculate conception, they’re ALL LESBIANS.
There are two kinds of parthenogenesis seen in reptiles. That used by whiptails and the other all female species is true cloning - the egg contains the female’s full genetic material).
Other species including komodo dragons use another form of parthenogenesis where they actually fertilize themselves, with a haploid polar body used instead of a sperm. Because of the way reptile sex chromosomes work, this form of parthenogenesis can produce males as well as females - however, the females produced have weird sex chromosomes and can only lay other females. It’s used as a backup reproductive strategy if they can’t find a mate. This works because in reptiles, unlike mammals, its the males that have two sex chromosomes the same (ZZ) and the females different (ZW). Females produced by parthenogenesis are WW - and that’s what happened to the whiptails. They lost the Z chromosome and now are all WWs.
Reptiles are fascinating.
So that means that bit I talked about on skype about lesbian dragons being able to reproduce in LotS has a basis!
They’re the animal versions of amazonians!
Steve Harvey’s emotional chat with Michael Brown’s mom (Full Interview)
i urge, urge, urge, URGE you to spread this like a wildfire. We need to reveal the humanity of this situation because Michael was not a thug, his family is real, the suffering that the black community goes through is tragic.
Black people should not be taught to assume the position, black people should not fear walking at night to buy a candy bar or a simply SWISHER, black people should not be treated like second class citizens. 2014 especially.
Spread this to the racists! Spread this to Facebook! Spread this literally EVERYWHERE YOU CAN.
Let EVERYONE know that mike did not die in vain. Let everyone know that he is not another statistic. He is Mike Brown and we must be he voice as well as the voice of all that have been murdered due to racial injustice
