brazil’s yacare caiman was once hunted to near extinction for its valuable skin, but thanks to a global ban on the trade, its home in the pantanal — the world’s largest wetland, situated along along the paraguay river — now supports the world’s largest population of crocodiles. the caiman, however, face new threats: deforestation, dams, tourism, mining and seaport development.

Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
This is why this is important.
When you’re talking to someone and you’re like “Hey when’s this thing coming out?” and they’re like “I don’t even know what that is” and you explain it to them and they go “Oh okay well I dunno when it’s coming out” it’s like OBVIOUSLY SHIT FOR BRAINS, you didn’t even know what that WAS, your answer is no longer valid so why are you giving me one.

I think I’ll run a daily check of lizardsextapes.com until eventually someone buys it or I go mad and purchase it myself and just have a page of nothing but that sultry iguana with sunglasses and Karma Chameleon playing with no pause button.
This is how I spend my time. Wisely.
Sometimes I look at our work chat when the engineers are talking and even though I know what they’re talking about I can’t help but laugh.
Children don’t inherit Layer tags, that would be problematic if they did.
It’s not something that’s funny but it sounds funny and I can’t not be a dumbass and laugh.
