This is a fantastic infographic!
The disadvantage of drinking cow milkThings to be careful about! I’d definitely recommend plant milks…
Glad I have never, ever liked milk ever in my entire life.
A quick PSA, because working in a New Age store I realize a lot of people don’t know this. Keep in mind this is the simple version.
The fella on the left-hand side, that’s Gautama Buddha, the Buddha, the central figure in Buddhism. Note that he is not considered a god, but a teacher and spiritual leader, the first to attain Enlightenment in his era. Note also how thin he is. This is because the Buddha fasted a lot. He was born Siddhartha Gautama. Buddha is a title, and not actually his name.
The fella on the right-hand side is not Buddha. This is a common misconception in the West. That is Hotai (or Budai or Hotei depending on the language), a Buddhist monk from China and folkloric hero. Hotai is thought by many to be a Buddha, but he is not the Buddha. Unlike Buddha, Hotai actually is revered as a god in Chinese folklore, although not in Buddhist practice.
This post is based on things I’ve been taught by my Buddhist coworker but if I forgot or mixed up something important and you are Buddhist and you notice, please let me know.
This has been an informational post. Have a nice day.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD EVERYONE READ THIS. READ IT. LEARN IT. PREACH IT.
I AM SO TIRED OF EVERYONE BELIEVING THIS MISCONCEPTION.
The bomb is dropped
The kittens sort of soften the blow.
this is the shittiest post ever. please unfollow me if you agree with this post also shame on OP for using cute kittens for this garbage post
not sure what it is exactly that makes this post so shitty? Because it’s promoting actual equality? instead of saying that you can call everyone else shit because you are part of an oppressed party you can say you are equal to them doesn’t exactly sound like a shitty idea to me.
only problem with this post: i’m swedish so i read every a as an ä…
womenpeople are taught “don’t send nudes if you don’t want them to get leaked”
menpeople are never taught “if a womanperson feels comfortable enough to send you a nude photo, keep it to yourself. leaking it could put herthem in danger.”
if you don’t see the issue here, you’re a part of the problem.
I adjusted it.
Male nude photos are leaked a lot, too. People should learn that anything said, given, or shown to them in confidence and secrecy should not be spread around.
When 19-year-old Luc Argent’s body begins to reject his new heart, he knows he doesn’t have a lot of time left. Which means he’s pushing everyone away more than he usually does in order to minimize the collateral damage when he finally kicks the bucket.
Then Evelyn comes back to town.
Evelyn left California—and her best friend Luc—three years ago. Since then, she hasn’t gotten so much as an e-mail from him. So when she returns and he shows up at her doorstep with an insane idea for an impromptu road trip, she doesn’t know what to think. Running away with a guy is something her mother does. Not her.
But even after all this time she doesn’t known how to tell Luc no. Just like Luc hasn’t learned how to tell Evelyn about his illness and how serious it really is. He has a destination in mind, he has a plan, and it all revolves around him and Evelyn and what little time he has left.
has anyones crush ever actually worked out for them or is that a myth
Mine did. I married her.
Well, I COULD…but then I would never have a reason to write a sequel, right? :)
how come it’s easier to find books for teens that feature vampires, werewolves, or robots than lgbtq characters
Agreed, although thankfully, this is slowly beginning to change and there are quite a selection of LGBT books out there. :) Not as many as I feel there should be, but definitely an improvement. Here’s a list to help OP out!
Ask the Passengers
Grand & Humble
Gone, Gone, Gone
With or Without You
I’ll Get There. It Better be Worth the Trip.
Made of Stars
Will Grayson, will grayson
And here are several GoodReads lists full of LGBT books! I hope this helps.
The worst kind of writer’s block is the kind where you know what’s going to happen and how it’s going to happen and everything other single detail but for fuck’s sake, it won’t turn into words.
