Arguing, Curving, and Elf: Theory: Nobody who writes a physics textbook gives any fucks Evidence Q2S.12 In J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings (volume 2, p. 32), Legolas the Elf claims to be able to accurately count horsemen and discern their hair color (vel- low) 5 leagues away on a bright, sunny day. Make appropriate estimates and argue that Legolas must have very strange-looking eyes, have some means of nonvisual perception, or have made a lucky guess. (1 league3.0 mi.) Update: Legolas pupils are about 3.5 cm wide each. Now drawing kawaii Legolas on physics assignment And they told you science was no fun THEY Sciencel I'm going to do it. I'm going to hand it in Legolas's pupl size isn't the problem here, though. 5 leagues is 17.262 miles The curvature of the Earth means that for a person of average height, the visual horizon is less than three miles away. Even if your vision is telescopic and the atmosphere is peifectly clear, you can't see around the planet. If they were standing on a hill, it would have to be at LEAST 198 feet above sea level In order to see the horizon at 17.2 miles away, with nothing tall in between. Which knowing Rohan, isn t impossible But consider. Elven satellite eyeballs. you mean lke @sidereanuncia it's back, the post that I can only imagine haunts your I shall never find peace Also, for what it's worth, there's absolutely no reason to believe that the curvature of Middle Earth is the same as that of Earh sindri42 There's no evidence that Middle Earth curves Yeah there is. The Silmarillion states that the world was curved aner the fail of Numenor believe), preventing access to Valinor. But Elves (among others) can travel the straight path across it So middle earth is round, but not for Eves because magic sindri42 So wait, the reason he can see that far is because Elves just have the ability to ignore the curve of the earth? That's awesome. It also means that no matter how good your optics got, you would always want er eyes manning the spyglass because they can see arbitrarly far while everybody else is limited by this horizon' bulshit Oh thank God, my poor ef prince has seen too much in this post Elves are fnat-earthers textbook tolkien

Animals, Bad, and Complex: when you're in biology class and realize there are only two genders O @hkhwyw sgaprivilege: sonoanthony: hatingongodot: fandomsandfeminism: wuuthradical: fandomsandfeminism: wuuthradical: fandomsandfeminism: wuuthradical: themagicofthenight: Well considering gender has literally nothing to do with biology I doubt that would happen. Gender has everything to do with biology. We wouldn’t have a binary without it. They’re inseparable. Surprise: There is no binary. The binary is an oversimplification that is largely contextualized within Western culture.  We wouldn’t be here right now if there wasn’t a gender binary. Complex lifeforms need one to perpetuate themselves. Also incorrect. Sex is a spectrum. You’ll find that reality is rarely as simple as pure and uncompromising binaries.  Sex isn’t chromosomes: the story of a century of misconceptions about X YThe influence of the XX/XY model of chromosomal sex has been profound over the last century, but it’s founded on faulty premises and responsible for encouraging reductive, essentialist thinking. While the scientific world has moved on, its popular appeal remains. Have you considered that those scientists might be bias and pushing an agenda. Gender is a biological absolute. Gender is highly contextualized by time and place. Like, if you want to talk about scientists being biased and pushing an agenda, look at modern western science for pushing a flawed binary narrative. Non-binary genders are not a modern invention. The idea of third genders/non-binary genders is as old as human civilization, because gender is socially constructed and subjective, and people’s ideas about gender have changed over time and between cultures. In Mesopotamian mythology, among the earliest written records of humanity, there are references to types of people who are not men and not women. In a Sumerian creation myth found on a stone tablet from the second millennium BC, the goddess Ninmah fashions a being “with no male organ and no female organ”, for whom Enki finds a position in society: “to stand before the king”. In Babylonia, Sumer and Assyria, certain types of individuals who performed religious duties in the service of Inanna/Ishtar have been described as a third gender. Inscribed pottery shards from the Middle Kingdom of Egypt (2000–1800 BCE), found near ancient Thebes (now Luxor, Egypt), list three human genders: tai (male), sḫt (“sekhet”) and hmt (female). The Vedas (c. 1500 BC–500 BC) describe individuals as belonging to one of three categories, according to one’s nature or prakrti. These are also spelled out in the Kama Sutra (c. 4th century AD) and elsewhere as pums-prakrti (male-nature), stri-prakrti (female-nature), and tritiya-prakrti (third-nature). Many have interpreted the “eunuchs” of the Ancient Eastern Mediterranean world as a third gender that inhabited a liminal space between women and men, understood in their societies as somehow neither or both. In the Historia Augusta, the eunuch body is described as a tertium genus hominum (a third human gender), The ancient Maya civilization may have recognised a third gender, according to historian Matthew Looper. Looper notes the androgynous Maize Deity and masculine Moon goddess of Maya mythology, and iconography and inscriptions where rulers embody or impersonate these deities. He suggests that the third gender could also include two-spirit individuals with special roles such as healers or diviners Anthropologist Rosemary Joyce agrees, writing that “gender was a fluid potential, not a fixed category, before the Spaniards came to Mesoamerica. Childhood training and ritual shaped, but did not set, adult gender, which could encompass third genders and alternative sexualities as well as “male” and “female.” At the height of the Classic period, Maya rulers presented themselves as embodying the entire range of gender possibilities, from male through female, by wearing blended costumes and playing male and female roles in state ceremonies.“ Andean Studies scholar Michael Horswell writes that third-gendered ritual attendants to chuqui chinchay, a jaguar deity in Incan mythology, were “vital actors in Andean ceremonies” prior to Spanish colonisation. Two-spirit individuals are viewed in some Native American cultures as having two identities occupying one body. Their dress is usually a mixture of traditionally male and traditionally female articles, or they may dress as a man one day, and a woman on another. In Pakistan, the hijras are officially recognized as third gender by the government, [Source] [source] [source] [Source] [Source] [source] [source][source] [Read More] [Read more] [Read more] it’s amazing how quickly “science says there are only two genders” becomes “have you considered that science is fake and is pushing an agenda?” I’m a biologist and I can assure you the 2 gender binary doesn’t exist. All around we see animals that don’t fall into either categories. Gender is a spectrum is the realest line there is when it comes to biology and gender. Cis people: Science says the truth. Science: *Says they’re wrong* Cis people: Actually, you know what, science is bad and is lying.
