Today we remember Jamey Rodemeyer (March 21st, 1997 – September 18th, 2011)
3 years ago today, 14-year-old Jamey committed suicide as a result of the relentless bullying he experienced. ‘Out’ as bisexual and a dedicated activist against homophobia, he was a huge Lady Gaga fan, and sent his last tweet directly to her. A few days later, she dedicated her song, “Hair” to him — a Little Monster lost far too early.
To commemorate Jamey and others like him, please reblog as a reminder to be kind and brave, to support one another, and to love yourself. 
Need help or know someone who does? In the U.S., call 1-800-273-8255 for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline or visit stopbullying.gov.

Most of my future children tag is cute brown children being fabulous and clearly belonging to me in spirit, but I’m making an exception for this tweet because if I don’t raise my kids to give that exact same response, then I have failed as a parent.
Who is this woman and can I send her a thank-you gift basket and a Black Parenting Award?  This is why it is imperative that we teach our children real history outside of textbooks constructed by, written for, and approved by white men whose re-telling of history conveniently glosses over atrocities and minimizes suffering.
"bold new idea"
I want to go to that school and set fire to every history book in the building.

YOU DID NOT QUOTE SPONGEBOB AND MAKE IT SOUND POETIC AND BEAUTIFUL

Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.

these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING

i’m unreasonably freaked out and disturbed by these

and then you put one onto a scottish beach and it runs so fast it takes off into orbit and is never seen again

these are actually created by their artist in a process that simulates evolution in an attempt to create artificial life. according to Jansen: “over time, these skeletons have become increasingly better at surviving the elements such as storms and water, and eventually I want to put these animals out in herds on the beaches, so they will live their own lives”
