thick skin and an elastic heart

I don’t think people realize how much of a problem Zayn’s tweet is. His acceptance and support of the Palestinian/Arab terrorists makes it seem like murdering Israeli citizens an okay thing for them to be doing. To be quite honest, I don’t think…

I was on the subway. It was me alone and there were 3 people sitting across from me. It was perfectly fine, until I noticed that the women in the middle kept staring at me. She wouldn’t stop. Her eyes were wide open and she never stopped to look the other way.

Midway throughout…

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

That comment is the only acceptable response to this quote

No, no actually it isn’t.
Do you know what the quotes means.
If you say the phrase is making no sense and is ridiculous, you are saying
'Let's take away the few rights women, poc, queer people etc have, because white cishet men have always rules stuff and it must continue like this'
you are saying
'beating children has done me and my parents and grandparents no harm, so I shall beat my child if it brings home a B.'
That’s what you are saying if you declare the sentence ridiculous.

Let me bring this up since someone decided to make a ridiculous, shitty example out of a medical situation. I’m a biostatistician PHD candidate, and one of my professors told me this story:
For a long time, since before the 70’s, there was this belief, even among top-ranking cardiologists that taking beta-blockers was bad for people at risk for heart attacks. There was literally no scientific literature on WHY this was bad, it was just a predominantly-held belief within the medical community. (This is actually extremely common. Most doctors treat patients on 40% “widely held medical belief” that has never been proven on paper).
The first man who actually decided to TEST the effect of beta-blockers on at-risk populations found that HEY ACTUALLY BETA-BLOCKERS PREVENTED HEART ATTACKS.
How did the scientific community react?? Were they completely logical and objective in accepting his findings?? HELL NO
They smeared that guy’s name through the mud, no one accepted his results, they claimed he was putting his patient’s life at risk for  even TESTING this thing etc. etc.
It took a good 10-15 years of tests on beta-blockers (a fucking uphill battle) before the medical community finally accepted this as a treatment for people at risk for heart attacks.
But meanwhile, think of all the people who DIED but COULD HAVE LIVED THANKS TO THIS TREATMENT but DIDN’T because stuffy old white guys decided “this is the way we always did it!!!!”
Here’s a source (it’s a scientific article just read the conclusion)

There’s a wasp flying around our lunch table. I came out to have a good time and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now.

More fun with photoshop. This time I wanted to see how Anthony Mackie’s Falcon from the Winter Soldier movie would look as Captain America. Of course I know that Falcon is only Captain America in the comics, so calm your tits MCU fanboys. I just wanted to see how awesome Anthony Mackie looks in the red white and blue. It took me an entire day to do this.
Edit: I just added a shield, since that’s obviously the most important thing about being Cap.
