That’s great, Bob. Now let’s talk about the creepy fetishizing you’ve got going on.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

"you’re obsessed with your mental illness"

i know right? it’s almost like it impacts every part of my life

See also: “you’re obsessed with race”, “you’re obsessed with gender”, “you’re obsessed with economic issues”, and so on.

This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve come across in a long time.

I understand the daily hardships that so many people have in a world ruled by white males.

I understand that sometimes this can make it feel as if all white males are the enemy (especially for those who fight for equality).

But posts like this need to stop.

You are not advancing anybodies rights.

You are not promoting anybody’s equality.

This is not activism.

This is hate-mongering.

Thanks for the contribution :)

I’ve lost track, am I even allowed an opinion these days? Whatever. How about this radical idea: Let’s treat each other equally, and then we’ll all be equal? All this mindless mud-slinging achieves nothing and only serves to demonstrate how true objectives of those involved (notably NOT equality).

Pollution Causing Tumors in Endangered Sea Turtles

Pollution from urban and farm runoff in Hawaii is causing tumors in endangered sea turtles, a new study found.
The study, published Tuesday in the journalPeerJ, shows that nitrogen in the runoff ends up in algae that the turtles eat, causing the animals to sprout tumors on their eyes, flippers and internal organs.
"We’re drawing direct lines from human nutrient inputs to the reef ecosystem, and how it affects wildlife," Kyle Van Houtan of Duke University said in a statement.
The disease behind the turtle tumors is called Fibropapillomatosis, and is thought to be prevalent in areas with high levels of nitrogen runoff. Now, researchers want to test the theory that algae can store excess nitrogen that finds its way into Hawaiian waters, and thereby turtles’ stomachs.
"In this paper we drill down on whether excess nitrogen inputs are causing a nutrient cascade in the system that’s ending up in these tumors in green turtles," explained Van Houtan.
Researchers found during their study that algae can store nitrogen in the form of the amino acid arginine, which was found in unusually high levels both in the algae in highly polluted waters and in the tumors of diseased turtles. One non-native red algae species in particular, Hypnea musciformis, had especially high levels of arginine compared to other species sampled. And since this invasive species grows more successfully than native algae, it can make up as much as 90 percent of the turtles’ diet.
Do to these combined factors, the turtles have approximately 14 times more arginine in their systems than they would if they were eating native algae species in less-polluted waters. What’s more, these algae-eating herbivores have to eat twice as much of the invasive algae to get the same amount of calories that they would if they were consuming native species of algae, acting as a sort of “one-two punch for promoting this disease,” the study noted.
How the virus causes the disease is still unclear, but researchers nonetheless hope their findings help scientists better understand how to protect not only sea turtles, but also other marine plants and animals that face similar threats from pollution.

men love “fat asses” and big titties but act like those things commonly exist naturally on thin women and they “don’t count” when accompanied by a jiggly belly and thick thighs
