hey remember that time disney made a movie with a diverse cast and strong female characters and not-entirely-evil antagonists and interesting characters and a poc princess and unique animation and an exciting plot and a steampunk submarine to top it all off
and nobody so much as gave it a second glance
Remember how we could have had a TV show sequel but the movie didn’t do as well as they hoped so they cobbled the three episodes that they did have into a direct to video sequel instead
Have you seen most of the plus-size sections out there? It’s horrifying. Whoever’s designing for plus-size doesn’t get it. The entire garment needs to be reconceived. You can’t just take a size 8 and make it larger. In my travels, I’ve been an advocate for larger women. I’ve been talking to designers, but only a half-dozen make an effort. Most say, ‘I don’t want a woman who’s a size 10 or 11 wearing my clothes.’ Well, shame on you! It’s not realistic. We need to address real women with real needs.

Tim Fucking Gunn! I love this man even more now! You tell ‘em!
The guy who invented the theory that vaccines cause autism had his medical license revoked for it
they took it away because he came up with a seemingly plausible theory?
They took it away because other scientists have been unable to reproduce his results, his results were made up, he didn’t even get approved by an ethics committee, and now he’s risking the health and lives of a whole bunch of people
Oh and the fact that basing a study on 12 participants is a fucking joke if you know a goddamned thing about statistics and designing scientific studies.
Also a fun note: these studies mostly became popular because of Jenny McCarthy, who claimed that her son’s autism had been caused by vaccines.
As it turns out, her son never even had autism. She claims that she “cured” his autism with things like a gluten-free diet and therapy, but it’s far more likely that he was misdiagnosed… and that she ran with it and started ruining people’s lives with it.
tl;dr - The anti-vaxx movement is built on lies and misinformation on top of lies and misinformation, and while this might be a laughable thing in other circumstances, this particular movement KILLS CHILDREN.
All of the above.
Ugh yes. For the record, my dad has been reading a gigantic, unwieldy, noisy newspaper at the table for decades without anyone complaining. My 5” smartphone? Massive etiquette violation apparently.
I need to frame this and hang it in my office. And in my house.
