talking with my friends last night, and we somehow got on the topic of “natural family planning” and i was all “ugh do what you must in the privacy of your own home, but i really don’t want to hear about it. why must you flaunt your boring, god-filled sex life in front of the rest of us? like, i accept your lifestyle and all that, i’m no heterophobe, as long as you don’t throw it in my face all the time.”

This made me giggle :) 

sorry for flaunting my lifestyle in your faces

#FieldProjects: ““Before 2008, child labour and child marriage were rampant… But now, thanks to BBA, we have become a Bal Mitra Gram [Safe Village].”

Our campaign with Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA) is spreading freedom for children across India!

Want to send 100% of a donation to a Safe Village that frees all children from brutal labor in mines? It’s simple! CLICK HERE: www.madeinafreeworld.com/india.

I definitely want to look more into this! This is the same organization that designed Slavery Footprint, and it looks like they are doing some more fantastic stuff!

Mycology is a strange thing. When I tell someone that I study fungi for a living, I get the strangest looks but if they could stop and see the world the way I do for just a minute they might see how amazingly wonderful the smallest parts of our world really are. Take this image for example, these are not just some clinging parasites devoid of beauty. They are as beautiful as any flower. In a world of magic they might lend themselves as faerie shelves. At this angle in science fiction this looks like a completely different world and yet it is the same Earth we all call home.

"There is the tendency to place ourselves and our ambitions at the center of our lives. This is very human, but it is not Christian."

"All human beings- both women and men- are called through the Church, to be the ‘Bride’ of Christ… In this way ‘being the bride’ and thus the ‘feminine’ element, becomes a symbol of all that is ‘human’…From this point of view, woman is the representative and the archetype of the whole human race: she represents the humanity which belongs to all human beings, both men and women."

Now PLEASE tell me how the Catholic Church is “anti-woman”??? It just makes me mad because I once believed the things people say about Catholics, which are usually the exact opposite of what Catholics say. /rant out
