More than 20,000 species of plants and animals around the world are currently under threat of extinction, and hundreds vanish each year. We don’t always know the exact time of extinction, but for the Pinta Island giant tortoise, the date was June 24, 2012.

On that day, Lonesome George—the Galapagos Island tortoise now on display at the American Museum of Natural History, and the last known member of his species—died of natural causes. With him, his species, Chelonoidis abingdoni, vanished.

Over the last two years, Wildlife Preservations taxidermy experts have worked closely with Museum scientists to preserve Lonesome George as he appeared in life—down to a missing toenail on his left front foot.

Watch a video about the preservation process, and learn much more about Lonesome George

East of Kensington is a dark introspective look into the tale of Peter Pan. It shows us the grim reality of this fairy tale. It’s 20 minutes long. When I was 10, I was obsessed with Peter Pan (mostly Jeremy Sumpter from Peter Pan 2003). If an attractive male showed up at my window and whisked me away to a magical land full of fairies, mermaids, and pirates, I would be ecstatic. But this short film makes me doubt all of it.

My life plan is to become really famous for a few years then slip into celebrity obscurity and open a coffee shop called “Has Bean”

Funny thing about straight white men getting offended by being called  straight white men, it’s almost as if they’ve spent their entire lives using the   differences/ classifiers of other people as means of insult/ dehumanisation. So they are finally described in those terms they get really defensive and accuse you of attacking them based on race, orientation, and gender.

The thing that scares/ annoys me the most about explaining gay oppression to straight people, is that I’ll become some laughable anecdote to them. That angry lesbian who yelled at them. And they will use my efforts to teach them as fuel to further a stereotype

Text

But seriously when will people in groups of power understand that segregation is what they do to oppressed groups to subjugate and dehumanise them; but separation is what oppressed groups do to protect their very lives and right to live as they are?

Text

Had to literally yell down two straight white men who were saying gay bars should be all inclusive and they don’t understand why minorities would “segregate” themselves because both of them were totally cool with gays

I’m so exhausted with explaining to straight men why the opinions of gay/queer people hold more importance than their “we all bleed red” opinion
