I want to note that the way the sex binary looks like it’s present throughout the animal world is that white scientists have a terrible habit of labeling everything “male” or “female” even when it makes no sense.

Like, by any reasonable metric, bees have three sexes: drone, queen, and worker. Workers are only labelled female because someone couldn’t abide the idea of something not being either one or the other.

And before someone calls “genetics” there are many species where both sexes have the exact same genetics, and even many where individuals can change reproductive capacity at will, and scientists suddenly have no problem calling the ones who grow eggs “female” even though they were “male” two weeks ago.

Some species of mammals reproduce asexually. They have only one sex. It is still called “female” because it makes babies even though one might reasonably ask why even make the distinction when every single individual makes babies just the same.

Peizhi Verse is on tap for NaNo again

So, thing about this world is that the one iron-clad, cannot, has-not been broken limit on magic is that the dead stay dead. There are no vampires, no zombies, no reincarnation, no resurrections. Death is permanent, and nobody has ever managed to work around that.

With one exception. Tariq Dossari, the husband of Amara, a brilliant islamic scholar and alchemist from the 9th century. Tariq was murdered by a jealous rival of Amara, who hoped to drive her from public life by the death of her beloved husband.

Decades later, Tariq woke in his grave, to discover his city burned, his family dead, and his wife long-missing. He’s been searching for an explanation ever since.

All of which is a long winded explanation for why Peizhi is out at three thirty on a wednesday morning, chasing rumors of vampires on the Chicago subways.

It is, however, feminism’s fault that now women let you know. Sorry, not sorry.

Photo Highlights from Ferguson October “Weekend of Resistance”

Quote from J. Myles
“Real talk- I did this for a weekend. These ppl here have been doing this every damn day. I’m exhausted over here wondering how ppl can handle the mental and physical strain. They are legit fighting for mike brown and the systematic racism we face as a ppl. [We], whoever all need to support them because this fight is for all of us. No way around that fact. “

If you’re a writer and you see this post, stop what you’re doing.

mark-helsing:

WHENEVER YOU SEE THIS POST ON YOUR DASH, STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND WRITE ONE SENTENCE FOR YOUR CURRENT PROJECT.

Just one sentence. Stop blogging for one minute and write a single sentence. It could be dialogue, it could be a nice description of scenery, it could be a metaphor, I don’t care. The point is, do it. Then, when you finish, you can get back to blogging.

If this gets viral, you might just have your novel finished by next Tuesday.

Sometimes I wish that I didn’t have emotions but then I remember that I have literally experienced that. It’s called depression. And it sucks.

Feelings may be hard to handle, but not having feelings is a far more horrific experience.

you make an excellent point

I’m aware its probably bad in the long run, but I’ve found having a restricted affect is pretty nice. Like, it would be terrible, terrible advice to tell someone to aim for it, but… Not feeling things intensely, and not experiencing deep sadness or sustained anger is working really well for me, is all I’m saying. Much better than being depressed. (There’s no obligation to pursue classical ‘sanity’.)
