bird privilege is being able to make loud as fuck noises early in the morning without somebody calling the cops on you
rhaegaryan asked: soi just bought a parrotlet and her names lucy. i just wanted to ask how long it took for yours to start trusting you and coming to you
It took a few days of my presence before she would step up readily and not long after before she became cuddly. Now, Midori was the last baby from a breeder who was done breeding birds. She was 4 months when I got her and had been handled and spent time around the breeder’s family so the idea of trusting a person wasn’t totally new to her.
Hitting the bullshit nail right on its head.
Feminists don’t hate men, we hate the bullshit power structure that exists that allows men to take advantage of women rather than dealing with their emotions.
BASICALLY I’M OBSESSED WITH CONTROLLING WOMEN’S LIVES BECAUSE I CAN’T CONTROL MY OWN
i wanna make a neon billboard of this shit

Sleepy #Tiki is my favorite Tiki.

God we fuck up teenagers’ heads. We tell them that biological conditions are moral punishments and then we get all shocked when they don’t practice rational risk management of biological conditions. We teach them “sex is super desirable and all the cool kids do it, and it’s hideously shameful and will destroy your life” and we wonder why they act an eensy bit neurotic about it. If you tried to design a system for making sexually active kids confused and unsafe, you couldn’t do much better than the American media and school system.
And for once, the answer is relatively simple. Just talk about sex like it’s a part of life. Some people have sex and some people don’t, because people are different. STIs aren’t bad because they’re Dirty Crotch Rot; they’re bad because they’re contagious illnesses like strep throat or whooping cough, and you can ask a doctor to check for and treat them just like you would with strep throat. Unwanted pregnancy isn’t a scarlet A; it’s a mostly-preventable accident that sometimes occurs when people are going about their normal business of having sex. You can ask the school counselor about a variety of topics, including career planning, problems at home, questions about sex, or conflicts with teachers.
If we could just get the goddamn stick out of our collective ass and accept that sex is a human activity and teenagers are humans, maybe there wouldn’t be quite so many plaintive “I don’t understand my body and I’m confused and scared and I don’t know anyone I can ask in person” messages flying out into the world.
It’s always snuggle o’clock around here.
