This tree makes の sense.

Are you fucking kidding me.

#For the people who don’t know:#The character ‘の’ is pronounced as ‘no’#Also the tree is shaped like の#’This tree makes no sense.’#You’re welcome.

tHANK YOU, sCIENCE SIDE,

Actually that’s the language side—Japanese language, to be exact. We’re still waiting to hear from the science side of Tumblr as to how and why a tree would grow in this manner.

Trees grow in the direction of light, so clearly this tree had light in a strange loopy pattern during growth.
Plant follow light, light make loopy loop, plant go loopy loop.

WHEN PEOPLE SAY YOU HAVE PRIVILEGE THEY ARE NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS

THEY ARE SAYING YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS THAT COME FROM OPPRESSION

THIS IS NOT A DIFFICULT CONCEPT

Uh duh.

What was that?
POCS were thriving and had expansive civilizations BEFORE white people came,colonized everything, and “discovered them”?
Oh…

Go read the source article. And if you haven’t, go read “1491” by Charles Mann. Indigenous people in the Amazon actually found a way to farm that instead of wearing out the soil, actually IMPROVED it with extensive farming. It’s called terra preta and no one has been able to replicate it (not even living indigenous people), and if it were to become replicable it could have enormous impact on agriculture worldwide. #indigenoustechftw
Charles Mann states that for a long time (and still today) outsiders have thought of Amazonian Indian people as “remnants” of the most “primitive” state of humanity, when in fact evidence increasingly points to the idea that modern Amazonian indigenous ways of life are the result of massive upheaval in the face colonizing disease, warfare, land theft, and general genocide. That, effectively, modern Amazonian indigenous people are living in the aftermath of what probably looked a lot like an apocalypse to them.
Which, well, no duh. 

are you sure it wasn’t some alien technology that let them farm sustainably before the White Men came & showed them how to civilised?

White people theworld didnt start with your invasion

I also read that the Amazon is just a giant garden. In other words, IT’S MAN MADE!!!! THE PEOPLE CREATED A STABLE ECOSYSTEM!!!! THEY WERE FUCKING GENIUSES. Read it here and here.

silversarcasm:

I’ve had some more people asking about person first language so I’d just like to make it clear why I prefer ‘disabled’ to ‘person with disability’. There are a few reasons but majorly:

Saying ‘with a disability’ removes the fact that disability is not something we have but something that happens to us. We are disabled by something.

For some of us, our bodies or minds disable us, but for many of us, society is a major factor in disabling us. The refusal to build accessible housing and public places disables mobility impaired people for example.

So essentially, saying ‘with a disability’ moves the blame away from outside forces and instead to us, we have it, it’s our fault that the world is inaccessible. Whilst ‘disabled’ acknowledges that disability is something that is done to us, that we are in fact disabled by society or by illness and it is not our fault.

(Disabled folks who do wish to identify as a person with disability is their prerogative though, this is aimed at abled folks talking about us)

  • I am inherently valuable.
  • My body is inherently valuable.
  • It’s fine if I want to educate people, but
  • That doesn’t mean I have to educate everyone. 
  • I don’t have to explain my existence to you if I don’t want to. 
  • Every now and again, a “fuck you” is as poetic as I can be. 
  • Breathe.
