Video: Oldest genitals reveal how ancient fish had sex

If you’re going through a dry patch, it’s nothing compared to the entire animal kingdom – which appears to have gone millions of years without cop …

Copulation and internal fertilisation have evolved and then been lost a few times over.

It’s that time of year again: matching merino tops and bottoms. #vscocam

when people say that raising the minimum wage will hurt workers because of layoffs or inflation they’re really just admiting that capitalism is structurally unable to provide an adequate standard of living for the working class

nicko330 asked: Why do you think that it's ok for women to assume a man is a rapist, but not ok for a man to assume a woman is a slut?

mildlyamused:

The worst thing that can happen if a woman fails to think of men as Schrodinger’s Rapist? She’s raped and killed.

The worst thing that can happen if a man fails to think of women as people? People think he’s an asshole.

Like right now. I now think you’re an asshole.

There’s also the part where ‘slut’ is, at best, a matter of perspective and at worst, a completely invented term that really has no relevance. Whether or not you think some woman has slept with ‘too many’ other people doesn’t make it true or even meaningful.

But a rapist is something you can actually be. There’s a lot less ambiguity.

Besides, aren’t all you jerkoff misogynists going on about how women should know better and keep themselves safe instead of just making sure men don’t rape women? Well, when they take your advice (because there’s basically no other option for now) they assume guys are rapists until proven otherwise. You brought this on yourself. When 1 in 6 women will be the victim of sexual assault or rape in her lifetime, it seems prudent to be safe first and sort things out later.

Anonymous asked: Fun fact: there isn't a country in the world were a man can have his female rapist convicted of rape because of how the laws are gendered. And feminists are the ones shutting down the changes.
