The quote from the college is infuriating:
Hobart and William Smith Colleges regret the accessibility challenges faced by Professors Kuusisto and Peace. The conference organizers immediately apologized and the president of Hobart and William Smith also personally expressed his regret. We remain committed to ensuring that our facilities and programs are accessible to all members of the community. We have taken immediate steps to create more appropriate signage and to mitigate access issues.
Nope. That’s not gonna do. See, you just placed the problem for YOUR brazenly inaccessible buildings on two disabled people. Your sentence structure is more or less, “We apologize for the fact that it hurt when you we punched you in the stomach.”See? It’s not actually an apology if you locate the problem within the person you harmed.
In doing so, you take away your own responsibility - ethically as well as legally - to create an inclusive learning environment, and you refuse to acknowledge how many other disabled people - or pregnant people, parents of young kids, people with broken legs, older folks, athletes who just had surgery on their knees, etc. - you’re excluding with your refusal to make your classrooms and event halls meet the very basic accessibility standards laid out under the ADA.
Such an adorable cat.
99% of cats have soft and fluffy fur, the only reason you’re calling this cat beautiful is because it has a giant scar on its face. If it had both eyes this picture would have 22 notes and nobody would give a shit. Stop calling it beautiful. It’s not, and it doesn’t matter because it’s a cat and it doesn’t understand English.
It’s badass looking but it’s not the most beautiful cat in the world. Stop making everything about beauty. It doesn’t matter if the cat is beautiful. Is it a nice cat? Is it housebroken? Does it play well with children? What are its political views? These are all things that are exponentially more important than “Is it beautiful?”.
You people will go to such great lengths to call every empty playground and dead leaf and disabled cat beautiful to make your blogs look more accepting and worldly but the truth is you wouldn’t give a shit if it wasn’t to make you feel good about yourself.
Please get help man. Get. Help.

if he was white, it’d be a “life hack”
If you’re white its a life hack. If you’re black its ghetto.
how do cats even work
- A cat can jump up to five times its own height in a single bound.
- The little tufts of hair in a cat’s ear that help keep out dirt direct sounds into the ear, and insulate the ears are called “ear furnishings.”
- The ability of a cat to find its way home is called “psi-traveling.” Experts think cats either use the angle of the sunlight to find their way or that cats have magnetized cells in their brains that act as compasses.
- One reason that kittens sleep so much is because a growth hormone is released only during sleep.
- A cat has 230 bones in its body. A human has 206. A cat has no collarbone, so it can fit through any opening the size of its head.
- A cat’s nose pad is ridged with a unique pattern, just like the fingerprint of a human.
- If they have ample water, cats can tolerate temperatures up to 133 °F.
- A cat’s heart beats nearly twice as fast as a human heart, at 110 to 140 beats a minute.
- Cats don’t have sweat glands over their bodies like humans do. Instead, they sweat only through their paws.
- The claws on the cat’s back paws aren’t as sharp as the claws on the front paws because the claws in the back don’t retract and, consequently, become worn.
- Cats make about 100 different sounds. Dogs make only about 10.
- Researchers are unsure exactly how a cat purrs. Most veterinarians believe that a cat purrs by vibrating vocal folds deep in the throat. To do this, a muscle in the larynx opens and closes the air passage about 25 times per second.
- A cat almost never meows at another cat, mostly just humans. Cats typically will spit, purr, and hiss at other cats.
- A cat’s back is extremely flexible because it has up to 53 loosely fitting vertebrae. Humans only have 34.
- Some cats have survived falls of over 65 feet (20 meters), due largely to their “righting reflex.” The eyes and balance organs in the inner ear tell it where it is in space so the cat can land on its feet. Even cats without a tail have this ability.
- A cat can travel at a top speed of approximately 31 mph (49 km) over a short distance.
- A cat’s hearing is better than a dog’s. And a cat can hear high-frequency sounds up to two octaves higher than a human.
- A cat’s brain is biologically more similar to a human brain than it is to a dog’s. Both humans and cats have identical regions in their brains that are responsible for emotions.
So cats are Kryptonians on Earth? Got it.
Eat litter, Kal-el!

im not kidding when i say i know a girl who went partially blind because of an emo haircut
My aunt had a similar cut when we was a teenager and it very much started to effect her vision, and also her neck because she constantly had to tilt her head to the side to keep said hair..out..of her eyes.
Anyone have an actual peer reviewed study about this sort of thing? Very much curious.
