SeaWorld Orlando has lost its other polar bear at the ripe old age of 24. They don’t know why, but there were complications following a routine physical. :(

if you don’t think some of the hate Taylor Swift receives is unnecessary and sexist let me just remind you that she once wore a black turtle neck, jeans and boots and this was a result

This comic I made over a year ago, but I’ve touched it up since and I’m happy to share it on tumblr C: while I’ve improved immensely since I made this, I’m still really proud of myself for making it.
ps. this was during a stage in my art where I was a little texture heavy, heh heh
Thanks!Two of the rescued pilot whales (I think it’s Ava and Fredi, but I’m not 100% sure) were bowing their way around the show pool about 1.5 hours after the last Blue Horizons.
The stadium was empty except for a few ops workers getting the stadium ready for the next day’s shows, so these ladies were performing for the fun of it!
Looks like Fredi’s doing the bow+spit behaviour that some of the killer whales know! I don’t know if that’s something they taught her or if she’s just being extra playful with the babies.

Definitely Ava and Fredi :)
I love them so much, but the babies are still hard for me to ID!

Agent Carter Panel at San Diego Comic Con
There were exactly four people who got to ask questions during this panel
All four were women
Three of them were dressed as Agent Carter
And they all asked questions surrounding the fact that they loved hearing the story of a strong woman like Agent Carter in a world that seems to exclusively show the stories of strong men
So if you were wondering why this show is a big deal: That’s why.
So I made my first gifset… AU where Dean’s impala is a guy
I was never a huge fan of the idea of having a human!impala episode
BUT THEN JOHN BARROWMAN ATTACKED
But it gets even better because john barrowman was actually born in ‘67
In one experiment, mothers were asked to guess the steepness of a carpeted slope that their 11-month olds would be able to crawl. Then the children actually crawled the slope, and the difference between actual and mother-predicted angles was noted.
The results showed that both boys and girls were able to crawl the same degree of incline. However, the predictions of the mothers were correct within one degree for the boys and underestimated their daughter’s ability by nine degrees.
What this shows is that the presumption that boys are more physical causes parents to encourage their boys more in physical activities while cautioning their girls. This further translates into providing more opportunities for boys to be physical and fewer for girls. The result?
Boys actually do develop stronger physical skills than girls. But not because of anything innate or biological, but rather because of the gender roles that the parents subconsciously projected onto their babies.
The experiment mentioned is available in full HERE.
