Animals, Driving, and Family: omosexuality is Natura Bonobo Homosexuality is Natural Dolphins Bonobos Basts SwansLionsPengins Penauins Homosexuality is Natural Homosexuplity is Naturat wins sixpenceee: wubberduckzilla: asleepymonster: eyesonhorus: sixpenceee: Homosexuality is natural! Here are animal species where homosexual behavior occurs frequently.  Dolphin: Sex is often performed in non-reproductive ways, using snout, flippers and genital rubbing, without regard to gender Bats: More than 20 species of bat have been documented to engage in homosexual behavior.In the wild, the grey-headed flying fox. In wild Bonin flying foxes (Pteropus pselaphon), males perform fellatio or ‘male-male genital licking’ on other males. Male–male genital licking events occur repeatedly several times in the same pair, and reciprocal genital licking also occurs.  Bonobos: which have a matriarchal society, unusual among apes, are a fully bisexual species—both males and females engage in heterosexual and homosexual behavior, being noted for female–female homosexuality in particular. Roughly 60% of all bonobo sexual activity occurs between two or more females. Sexual activity is the bonobo’s answer to avoiding conflict. Swans: An estimated one-quarter of all black swans pairings are of males. They steal nests, or form temporary threesomes with females to obtain eggs, driving away the female after she lays the eggs.  Lions: Both male and female lions have been seen to interact homosexually. Male lions pair-bond for a number of days and initiate homosexual activity with affectionate nuzzling and caressing Penguins: Penguins have been observed to engage in homosexual behaviour since at least as early as 1911. In early February 2004 the New York Times reported that Roy and Silo, a male pair of chinstrap penguins in the Central Park Zoo in New York City had successfully hatched and fostered a female chick from a fertile egg they had been given to incubate. Other penguins in New York zoos have also been reported to have formed same-sex pairs. In Odense Zoo in Denmark, a pair of male king penguins adopted an egg that had been abandoned by a female, proceeding to incubate it and raise the chick. (Source) Homophobia on the other hand, only exists in one species: HUMANS You can order a shirt here Please also note we are the most closely related to bonobos I just bought this for my mom for mother’s day. She gets a lot of flack from her family about shit like this, so I think she’ll be proud to have it. Fun-filled fact, homosexuality is present in across nearly every taxa and is an expression of biodiversity. Being gay is as natural as having ears. Kinda shocked at the homophobia in the comments! But even more reasons to promote this shirt ;)

Tumblr, American, and Blog: PATRICK MULLEN-COYOY Where is Guatemala? Where in Mexico is Guatemala?" The question hangs in the air, For an answer that lies beyond your grasp. How do you tell them where Guatemala is? waiting, How can you give them a sense of a place, a feeling- a memory, really -that even you barely know? You start off easily enough: What is Guatemala? It's mixtas, it's rellenitos, it's shecas. It's tiendas selling típica and Hastily-painted souvenirs That you'll treasure for the next decade. It's chicken busses and tuk tuks Carpets made of woods Smog mixes wi Smog mixes vi crazyexmachina: Two years ago, I decided to write again. Having just returned from a trip back to Xela after nearly 9 years, it felt right. I wrote this poem through tears, posted it to Tumblr, and then let it be. One year ago, I decided to submit this poem for publication with @tiachuchapress. I rushed to edit/excise those bits and parts that didn’t stand the test of time. I clicked send, and then let it be. Today I read “Where is Guatemala?,” out loud, for the first time ever. Today I looked back on words that I have not dared read since submission, lest I discover some glaring flaw. And yet, reading today, I knew this was not a “lesser” poem from my past. It’s different, for sure, but like “Chapingolandia,” it stands for a certain moment, a certain feeling, a certain Central American mix of dust and incense in the air. And so I do not merely let it be, but celebrate this piece that I’ve nurtured for so long. This is just the beginning, and I’m so excited to share it with all of you. 💜🇬🇹

Not only it isn’t just the US, but Europe started much earlier. Italy in particular never got around dealing with fascists (even monuments to the regime are still up), the Italian right is notoriously and literally still fascist (there is even a party called Movimento Fascismo e Libertà - Fascism and Freedom Movement) with parties like CasaPound Italia and Forza Nuova still active, with the center-right being not far off but mostly keeping a public face of only “conservatives”. Mussolini’s granddaughter Alessandra Mussolini is still active in politics and a member of the senate and of the European Parliament for Central Italy. This is 100% true, Europe has a long history with both far left and far right politics, but the far right was still for the most part not that popular except in isolated incidents like in Ukraine or Golden Dawn in Greece, but I make the claim that the far right is making a pretty effective and large comeback because neoliberal austerity measures and other economic factors have hurt many European countries. Since the left in these countries has been ineffective in addressing the grievances of the people or flat out infiltrated or thwarted by the state. The populist right was emotionally appealing in a time of economic need (much like the Nazis were in Germany who scapegoated Jewish people) and has thus surged by blaming refugees, immigration, etc. The left would have been able to counter the right in many of these countries without using economic scapegoating but as I said many were prevented or attacked. So although the presence of the far right has never left Europe I do think there are reasons to believe it’s on the rise just like in the United States. In Austria the Greens BARELY beat the far right wing party and Poland is a good example of the far right taking over as well. Oh yes, absolutely. The combined economic crisis of early 2000’s and the current immigration/refugee situation created the perfect panoramic for fear mongering and scapegoating tactics that the extreme right is so adept at using. They’ve been gaining ground for quite some time now. The ineptitude and infighting common in the European left also meant they were unable to create a coherent narrative and opposition (and don’t get me started on the racism is not a thing here” moderates).I wrote only about Italy because that’s what I have personal and deeper experience with, and to remember/tell people that fascism never really went away. (I still want to go back there and deface that horrid obelisk to Mussolini in front of the Foro Italico…) Well thank you so much, because I learned something today. Had no idea musollinis granddaughter was still active omg thats so scary lol and yeah Europe is not a post-racial utopia and that includes Scandinavia which some liberals claim is the zenith of all morality lol

That we intervened on behalf of Kuwait. That without “bombing” people that want to kill and oppress others, millions will be murdered and tortured. “at war for 1000′s of years” you clearly know nothing about Afghanistan nor the middle east here’s Afghanistan in the 1950′s, 60′s, 70′s if you really want to know what caused all the instability growth of extremist groups I suggest you take a look at the US foreign policy towards Afghanistan during the 80′s It’s interesting to note that when the communist government came to power in Afghanistan in the late 70′s, one of the first things they did was declare equality of the sexes, made education for girls mandatory, banned child marriages. The conservative tribal leaders who the US armed funded ( who later became the Taliban) declared this to be a “war on Islam” fought against the central government. The US had no problem back then with encouraging the growth of Islamic conservatism to counter socialism/communism. You created your biggest enemy you have no one to blame but yourselves.
