Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

Yet, in an ironic twist, if you listen to people at the zoo, all they say is “hey look it’s ______” whilst at the primate exhibits. I don’t understand how people can turn a blind eye to such a blatant resemblance to such brilliant animals. There is so much human in primates, as there is much primacy in humans.

It ain’t fact if it ain’t in the book. It’s hard to give in to your own insignificant helplessness in it all when you feel you should have come from a grander place.

My BFF Coming out to her 89 Year old Grandmother

BFF: Grandmother I need to talk to you

Grandma: [concerned voice] What? What is it? Are you sick?

BFF: No, no. Grandma. I'm gay.

Grandma: What?

BFF: I'm gay Grandma. I have a girlfriend now.

Grandma: [relieved voice] Oh honey, is that all? I thought you had cancer. Anytime someone needs to tell me something they are sick. Who's your girlfriend, when is her birthday? I'll bake her a pie.

so let me get this straight. anti-choicers took $500,000 dollars worth of pennies and sealed them in a glass case as a “memorial” to “victims” of abortion. i’m going to say that again. these people have locked away $500,000 dollars as a “tribute” to dead blobs of cells instead of donating that money to actual living breathing children who don’t have basic necessities or homes.

anti-choicers are incredible
