lightning illuminates an ash cloud that extends ten kilometres high in this june 5, 2011 eruption of puyehue volcano, near osorno in southern chile. known as a dirty thunderstorm, this phenomenon is yet to be explained by science, as the source of the lightning (or the specific mechanism by which particles of differing charges are separated in the ash cloud) continues to be debated.

Anonymous Asked:
I've been seeing a lot of stuff floating around tumblr about how saying "female bodied" or "male bodied" or separating sex and gender is transphobic. As a trans guy who is pre-everything, I think that it is factually inaccurate to say that my body is male. It isn't. I want to change that. I know that there are lots of variants on male, female, and intersex, but do you guys have some resources that might help me make sense of this?

theartoftransliness:

Zak: I think part of the problem is that, while you might be comfortable with the term “female-bodied,” for other people it might make them feel dysphoric or it would actually be inaccurate. For instance, I’ve been on testosterone for 4 years and have had top surgery. Is it accurate to say that I am female bodied? I’d say no, but I’d also say that “male bodied” would be inaccurate. Those terms just don’t work to accurately describe many people’s bodies. Beyond that, those terms carry baggage that to many people make them distasteful. It is more accurate oftentimes to be more specific. If you are talking about people with vaginas, say so (or people with breasts, people assigned female at birth, people who can get pregnant, etc depending on what you’re actually talking about). Yes, saying female bodied may be simpler and cover all of those things for some people, but for other people it is an alienating and uncomfortable term (even among some cisgender people!). Hope that clears up why many people have a problem with it.

THIS IS HOW THE BRITISH PRESS RESPONDS TO THE KILLINGS OF DISABLED CHILDREN. All of these extracts were taken from UK news websites. the final tweet is in response to a now-deleted tweet from politician Sandy Kaylan, who praised a mother for ‘euthanising’ her infant children

tania Clarence, 43, admitted to smothering three of her children, all of whom suffered from physical disabilities. Regardless of the circumstances that led to their tragic deaths, these methods of reporting are unethical and go against the British editors code of practice - which states that, once proceedings are active, the press cannot publish any material that could create substantial risk of prejudice in court. The language used in these articles (“tragic mum”, “the unbearable burden of care”, putting the word murder in scare quotes, etc) does exactly that. Reading these articles, it is clear who we are meant to “side” with.

that these rules on court proceedings are apparently not applicable to cases involving the killing of disabled children shows how little the British press (and by extension, the public) cares about the welfare of disabled people in this country. Calling these children burdens and implying they deserved to die reinforces ableism and makes the world a more dangerous place for disabled people. Yet the press does not count it as encouraging prejudice. maybe it’s because we believe the unlawful killing of disabled infants does not “count” as a real crime

This is abhorrent.

5,000 notes. Tumblr really that’s it?

People are surprised that this only had 5000 notes? That’s pretty much a standard problem. Tumblr as a whole tends to not really give a shit about ableism. I mean this might not be the case for smaller communities like the autistic community or the mentally ill communities etc, but yeah, I’m very much unsurprised at the lack of notes. That’s pretty standard.

After all, tumblr circulated a petition to make a death star but didn’t really circulate one that advocated for it to be illegal to prevent a disabled person from receiving an organ transplant.

But you know. What do I know?
