i am duckie, sometimes called caolan. i am 19. i am a georgetown uni student, and will hopefully remain so for the next 4 years. i am a poshingtonian. i am genderfluid. i prefer the pronouns "they," "them," "their," etc. i am pansexual, though also gray-asexual. i am an aspiring music douche and, ultimately, music therapist. i am a sex educator (which sometimes makes this blog NSFW). i am not particularly healthy in the head. i am an asshole. i am sorry. i am a social justice blogger. i am not sorry. i am genderfunkadelic. most importantly, i am a sexy lumberjack.

i try to comprehensively use content warnings, but if i miss anything or you'd like me to tag a certain type of post, please tell me and i will. i'd be real grateful if you would PLEASE tag trypophobia, body horror and images of damaged skin.

this, right here - this is my design.

Surreal Photos of A Frozen Venice

Art director Robert Jahns has created a series of surrealistic photos of Venice by combining photos of Italy by Luis Manuel Osorio Fernando with photos of frozen lakes in Russia by Daniel Kordan. Robert Jahns wanted to show how the Venice Canal would look like if it was frozen by the winter.

this is so weird but hell, what with climate change, it could happen. if venice doesn’t sink first.

All the life’s wisdom can be found in anagrams. Anagrams never lie.

Anu Garg

here are some anagrams of my first and last name:

acne ordeal, no one cared, anal doc, narc ale, dead orca, oral ace, old crone

the world has a shitty sense of humor.

(via a-box-of-cats)

mind, there are some nice pseudonym ideas:

lance adore, deacon earl, ocean alder, el dorado

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.

In my Biological Anthropology course we were discussing how the modern ideas of races were a product of European exploration because just hopping into a ship and landing somewhere new the variation in populations seems very dramatic, but looking at it holistically it’s just a gradual shift in pigmentation across the globe. If you were to walk from the equator to the North Pole, you would see this subtle shift in skin coloration, and have a very hard time splitting the populations you found into different “races.” There are no biological human races, and there are no genetic markers that are found only in certain races and not in others. Things we think of as “racial traits,” such as skin coloration, hair color and texture, and “racial diseases” like Sickle Cell (which, much like skin color, is inherited based on geography and is present in the Mediterranean and not just in parts of Africa as some believe) are not inherited along racial lines. In fact, there is more variation within a single “racial” group than there is between population groups (and there is more genetic diversity in Africa than anywhere else on the globe. Just a fun fact). We are such a young species, and the genetic variation between populations is amazingly small, yet we fight and hate and belittle people for the few minor physical traits we do see as different.
