"God of our fathers, we have no calendars, and no clue what we should be doing right now. We hope this is at least partially correct. Amen."

"blessed are you oh lord our g-d, ruler of the universe, who has kept us alive, sustained us, and enabled us to reach….. some season. not sure which. definitely one of them, though."

omg-d

Thanks for delivering us when…uhm…who was it again? You know, those guys…were persecuting us. That was cool of you.

What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:

  • I am unable to do that
  • I am too stressed out to do that
  • I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
  • My body will physically not allow me to do that
  • I am on the verge of a panic attack
  • I cannot do that

What people hear:

  • I am unwilling to do that
  • I am just shy
  • I am overreacting
  • I am lazy
  • I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
  • I need a push
  • I don’t want to do that

The Satanic Temple has responded to an Orange County, Florida decision to disseminate religious materials in public school by creating complementary materials that espouse the philosophy and practice of Satanism. Last month, a Florida judge ruled that if the Orange County school district allowed Christian groups to disseminate Bibles and Christian-oriented religious materials in its schools, it would also have to allow atheist groups to do the same. David Williamson of the Central Florida Free Thought Community — who recently fought against Brevard County’s attempt to ban atheists from offering invocations at public meetings — sued the district over its initial unwillingness to allow atheist literature with titles like “Jesus Is Dead” and “Why I Am Not a Muslim” in the schools. A judge dismissed that case after the school board decided to allow the materials. The Satanic Temple took advantage of this decision, deciding to flood Orange County schools with a pamphlet entitled The Satanic Children’s Big Book of Activities that contains kid-friendly Satanic lessons. “These bullies are mad and afraid of things they don’t understand,” the instructions on the word-jumble reads. “Help Damian use inclusive language to defuse the situation. The spokesman for the Satanic Temple, Lucien Greaves, explained that his organization “would never seek to establish a precedent of disseminating our religious materials in public schools because we believe our constitutional values are better served by respecting a strong separation of Church and State.” “However,” he continued, “if a public school board is going to allow religious pamphlets and full Bibles to be distributed to students — as is the case in Orange County, Florida — we think the responsible thing to do is to ensure that these students are given access to a variety of differing religious opinions, as opposed to standing idly by while one religious voice dominates the discourse and delivers propaganda to youth.” The Satanic Temple made headlines earlier this year when it successfully petitioned the state of Oklahoma to allow it to erect a goat-headed Baphomet statue adjacent to a display of the Ten Commandments. Greaves made it clear that, in both cases, his organization is only responding to provocations by the Christian community. ““Even as we prefer public policies respecting secularism, we feel that opportunities — such as this — to establish an equal voice for contrasting religious opinions in the public square, tend to favor marginalized, lesser-known, and alternative religions,” he said. “I am quite certain that all of the children in these Florida schools are already aware of the Christian religion and it’s Bible, and this might be the first exposure these children have to the actual practice of Satanism. We think many students will be very curious to see what we offer.”

Come into the fold, as it were.

One time my family was on vacation in Alaska, and halfway through, we went to a laundromat. We claimed one of the huge machines and just stuffed the contents of our suitcases all in there.
After the machine had run, my dad was pulling stuff out and realized we’d stuffed it so full, some things were still dry AND folded. So he’s pulling out perfectly folded shirts, and this woman is trying to pretend she’s not watching. My dad looks at her and goes “This is amazing! I’ve never seen a laundry machine that can do this!!!”
She totally claimed that machine when we were done.

I’m not a misandrist, but a few quick questions:

If men can’t even make their own sandwiches, why are they allowed to make bills in congress?

If men can’t control their own sexual urges, why are they allowed to control nations?

If a woman’s legs/shoulders are enough to distract a man, how can we trust them to stay focused on things like open heart surgery or judging a murder trial?

Again not a misandrist, some of my best friends are guys and i’m even dating one.

TUMBLR IS BEING A JERK TO ME, SO THIS TOOK FOREVER TO POST. ANYWAY…
This is a good question, and at this moment I find that I am willing to submit to public humiliation in order to answer, so I am going to post some of my references.
You know there are tons of great anatomy and reference books out there, and they are super useful… but I find that the real trick is applying one’s knowledge of anatomy to an actual figure in a specific situation.  Bodies twist and warp and move, and sometimes just knowing what bone or muscle goes where isn’t enough for me.
This is where the long, sordid relationship between me and my webcam begins.  I am my own favorite model, …because I am always available, and I’m always wiling to look like an idiot for the sake of art.

my teacher sent a student home today because the student had had an anxiety attack earlier in the morning and she said “if you have a broken bone, you don’t just keep walking on it and damaging it more, you treat it. Your mental health is the same. Health then school.” 

I was about to get really angry but it took a different turn than I expected
we really need more teachers like this
