Reblogging fun stuff. Sometimes I'll make my own posts or post my own art. I'm 19 years old, and taken. ;) I identify as greysexual, and though biromantic, I tend towards the lesbian end of that spectrum. I ride horses and stuff... a little horse crazy... yeah... feel free to ask any questions or whatnot?

Please! Feeding ducks and geese also creates other problems like:

  • Duckling Malnutrition: In an area where ducks are regularly fed bread, ducklings will not receive adequate nutrition for proper growth and development. Furthermore, because ducks will naturally seek out an easy food source such as human handouts, ducklings will not learn to forage for natural foods as easily.

  • Overcrowding: Where an easy food source is abundant, ducks and other waterfowl will lay more eggs and the pond or lake will become overcrowded. This makes it more difficult for the birds to seek out healthier food sources and increases the likelihood of territorial aggression.

  • Pollution: When too much bread is offered to ducks, not all of it will be eaten. The soggy, uneaten bread is unsightly and rotting bread can create noxious odors as well as lead to greater algae growth that can clog natural waterways. This concentrates the pollution and can eventually eradicate fish and other life in the vicinity.

  • Diseases: Feeding ducks bread can increase the spread of diseases in two ways. First, a carbohydrate-rich diet leads to greater defecation, and bird feces easily harbor bacteria responsible for numerous diseases, including avian botulism. Second, moldy bread can cause aspergillosis, a fatal lung infection that can decimate entire duck and waterfowl flocks.

  • Pest Attraction: Rotting supplies of food leftover from sated ducks will attract other unwelcome pests such as rats, mice and insects. These pests can also harbor additional diseases that can be dangerous to humans.

  • Loss of Natural Behavior: When birds become accustomed to handouts, they lose their natural fear of humans and may become aggressive in order to get more food. Their loss of fear can also cause other dangers, such as a willingness to cross busy roads in order to reach picnickers and other likely sources of food.

You know there are programs that can change your daughters confused predilections.

My heart fucking broke during this scene. 

This was my favourite scene. He’s a military man who comes off as a typical “manly man” and he stands up for his daughter being lesbian. This scene was heartbreaking but fucking beautiful.

The Huffingpost has covered the topic of gender-neutral bathrooms becoming more popular on college campuses. 

Well right here in the Union, we already have them! On the second floor of the Union, located near the SGA office, students can find our gender friendly facilities.

Just another reason why FSU is a great place to be! Go Noles!

Why do some baristas think its adorable and clever to dick around with people’s specifications? They can kill someone with allergies or other problems!!!

i’m unlucky enough to have encountered a barista malicious enough to do this to me - i ordered a decaf latte with soy milk and they gave me fully caffeinated with cow’s milk. cue hours of panic attacks due to the caffeine and feeling sick due to lactose intolerance. ugh!!! Seriously!!!

I’ve had this kind of thing happen multiple times. Ordering diet pop and getting regular, ordering sugar free syrup and getting regular…and since I can’t always tell the difference in taste between diet and regular, I finish the whole drink and then end up in the hospital with blood sugar over 40. It’s not fuckin’ cute, people.

Last summer, I had a stomach infection and could hardly eat any sugar at all. After I went to doctors appointments, I’d gotten into the routine of stopping at a nearby coffee shop and getting a sugar free soy latte (because I’m also lactose intolerant). Whenever I gave that order to a certain barista, she would roll her eyes and be kind of rude, but I was like whatever. Then one day, I gave my order and my drink tasted a little better, but I didn’t really think anything of it until I overheard her whispering to another barista something like “I made that girl’s drink with regular syrup and whole milk, I’m so sick of these bitches getting soy and sugar free when they’re not even fat” like she had done something really awesome and clever.

I was horribly sick for the rest of the day. it’s not uncommon at all for baristas to give me whole milk when I ask for soy. and for me, that just means I get a bad tummy ache, but for some people, that could actually kill them.

People who do this shit should really lose their jobs.

My ex-boyfriend’s wonderful, artistic, funny grandmother died of an allergic reaction, because someone thought it would be funny to give her something other than what she ordered. 

My mother is diabetic, and managing her blood sugar (really well, fortunately) through her diet and without insulin because it’s damned expensive for her. 

There are people with allergies, food sensitivities and religious prohibitions, and so on. Whether you think someone’s a “skinny bitch” or a “fat cow,” (either way, fuck you for being a judgmental asshole), it’s not your goddamn place to be the arbiter of their diets, you thoughtless moron. 

I personally get very sick and uncomfortable if I drink whole cow’s milk and I’m not heavy at all. But you know what? It really shouldn’t even matter, because it’s none of your damned business, anonymous barista.

Your job is to make delicious custom beverages. Whether a customer gets something for dieting/weight reasons, health reasons, or just fucking PREFERENCE reasons, you don’t dick with someone’s order. I don’t care how cute or clever you think you’re being for getting back at some random person who just wants their drink how they like it or, in plenty of cases, how they must absolutely have it.

You’re not cute. You’re not clever. You are just an ass and should probably be fired, lest your company violate some child labor law for having an employee so fucking juvenile.

The theater I used to work at had seltzer water that came out of the same tap as Sprite. You can guess how well that went over for diabetics.

People like you infuriate me so much with such condescendence and ignorance… The fuck do you mean with that little smile at the end of your statement? You think you are doing “those skinny bitches” a favour? You think you are funny or something? Because you are not. The only thing you are is so much of an ignorant that you work serving people food and don’t even know you don’t fuck around with their order, especially in the case of products widely known to be problematic such as whole cow milk or caffeine. If you were even just a bit cultured and serious about your job, you would know that:

1) It is not only pretty rude, unprofessional and childishly insolent, but also pretty dangerous to just serve whatever food you want instead of what the client is specifically ordering, especially without even informing them. Your client’s reasons may be perfectly reasonable or absolutely stupid but YOU DON’T KNOW THAT –AND IT’S NOT YOUR PLACE TO DECIDE FOR THEM- so whatever reasons you have to think you are entitled to secretly serve them your choice over THEIR CHOICE THAT THEY ARE PAYING FOR are obviously not good enough because you could literally kill someone because of allergies, sugar problems, caffeine fucking someone’s already fucked up nervous system, etc. Look at all the harm you can do by fucking a simple coffee cup order, you thoughtless brat. If they order soy without caffeine and without sugar, YOU SERVE SUCH.

2) If you think you are such an expert on diet and food matters to feel so fucking entitled to serve your clients whatever the fucking fuck you want instead of what they are ordering because you think you are doing them some kinda stupid favour, you should know that about 60-70% of the worldwide adult population can’t digest whole milk properly, many of them being not only intolerant to lactose -among other things-, but just plain allergic… which, yet again, means you could kill someone, and in the best of cases, ruin for some time their hard work being careful on diet and treatment for their digestive system. This happens to most other animals as well, and it’s the reason people should stop the “oh cats love milk” while in reality milk is pretty awfully bad for cats and the whole “babies survive on milk so adults have to drink milk too it’s very important” NO NO AND NO WHOLE COW MILK IS NOT LIKE HUMAN MOTHERS’S MILK AND ADULTS DON’T NEED MILK ACTUALLY THEY ARE BETTER OFF NOT DRINKING ANY THEY JUST DO IT OUT OF RUTINE AND OUT OF LIKING MILK JUST AS EATING CHOCOLATE OR WHATEVER.

3) Stop the body bashing because, first of all, Skinny people are not better or worse than others, and second, you don’t know if someone is skinny because that’s their natural complexity, because they are ill and while in the hospital they lost some weight, or because they are indeed starving themselves to death to try to look skinny. YOU DON’T KNOW THAT PERSON SO HOW CAN YOU EVEN THINK YOU CAN POSSIBLY BE SO SURE WHAT’S BETTER FOR THEM. STOP JUDGING THEM AND MAKING DECISIONS FOR THEM JUST BY LOOKING AT THEM FOR 2 MINUTES WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU.

4) Stop calling your clients “bitches” for such reasons, how dare you? Are they ruining your local? Are they insulting you or being rude when they order? No? THEN WHY ARE YOU INSULTING THEM. WONDER WHO IS BEING A BITCH INSTEAD.

5) Thank you very fucking much for giving me another reason to be paranoid about relaying on absolutely anyone other than myself to do anything because apparently I can’t even order a darn little coffee without fearing the barista would be ignorant and/or insensible enough to serve me something else that could kill me.

His fucking face in the third pic is like every white boy I’ve ever seen try to explain away his racist/sexist/homophobic comment.

When it’s actually the opposite. European settlers were the savages. Native Americans had running irrigation systems! They had beautiful and intricate cities and homes and communities. They were clean, and respectful of the environment, and even used a form of breath sweeteners! But no. You won’t learn any of that in American history classes. You won’t learn about the complete and utter genocide of a nation of people who originally inhabited this land. Nope.
