Why isn’t anyone talking about this?
Watch non black cosplayers and lovers of cosplay stay silent on this.
Man what in the FUCK

Trigger warning: Breakfast
reasons why we don’t make fun of seemingly odd triggers
This is a great example of why the appropriation of trauma triggers and their respective warnings by the SJ crowd grinds my gears so much.
In my chest I feel it
This is very personal to me.
Holy hell #triggerwarning #breakfast
Another brilliant idea for washi tape lovers!
The hazards of life can be instant, like violence or accidents, the kind that hit us over the head with a swift goodnight. But lifestyle is a more sinister threat, another type of mortal hazard with slower effects that go stealthily into the blood one cancerous bacon sandwich or poisonous drink at a time, potential killers by degrees that might catch up with us later in life, as something surely will.
Imagine the duration of your adult life divided into 1 million equal parts. A MicroLife is one of these parts and lasts 30 minutes. It is based on the idea that as young adults we typically have about 1 million half-hours left to live, on average.
MicroLives can measure how fast you are using up your stock of life, faster or slower depending on the chronic risks to which you’re exposed. If your lifestyle is chronically unhealthy, you’ll probably burn up your allotted MicroLives that much quicker, and die sooner, on average.
It turns out that one cigarette reduces life-expectancy by about 15 minutes, on average, and so two cigarettes cost half an hour, or 1 ML. Four cigarettes are equal to 2 MLs.
The first two pints of strongish beer also equal about 1 ML. Each extra inch on your waistline costs you around 1 ML every day, 7 a week, about 30 a month, and so on. According to recent research, so does watching two hours of TV. An extra burger a day is also about 1 ML.
…We could simply add up all these MicroLives, half-hour by half-hour, to see roughly how much time, on average, you lose in total from whatever your lifespan might have been.
For teaching: anatomy and physiology
safdarnama has been writing some great content about the Refugee Art Project on his blog. Unfortunately, our reblog function hasn’t been working quite so well, so here is a reproduction of his posts which can be found here.
At the Other Worlds Zine fair, we launched some new refugee art project zines, including a special women’s issue and one made with children of a refugee background at Fairfield High School.
The women’s zine featured the artwork and writing of refugee women from the Villawood detention centre and our weekly art workshop in Parramatta. Our workshops seek to provide refugee women with opportunities for creative self-expression, a time to socialise and for those who live in the community, a chance to create a sense of belonging.
The women’s issue is by far the most popular zine we have done so far. We ordered about 60 copies and at the end of the fair there were only a small handful of them left.
The young person’s issue featured wonderful comics and portraits made by children and young people of a refugee background in Western Sydney, in partnership with Fairfield High School.
For young people, the troubles of leaving their home and arriving in a new world can be particularly difficult. Their struggle to learn a new language, understand new cultural norms and negotiate familial pressures were poured into this zine in stories that capture their innocence and strength.
The zine is made up of comics and portraits by kids aged 15 to 16, in a workshop facilitated by our colleague, a high school arts teacher.
Their comics were instructed by earlier Refugee Art Project zines, made with people inside the Villawood detention centre. Those zines, which also contained short comics about the struggle of refugees in detention, motivated the students to draw stories about their own lives. They were animated by images of birds in flight, figures trapped in cells and with chains on their feet, and brought such imagery into their own work.
The zine thus represents a link between refugees in detention and young people in the community.
Our high school art teacher and I had a great day at the High Schools in Refugee Week, to officially launch the zine. The school ordered 100 copies for their own use, and each child who participated in the class got their own copy.
The last image is one of my favorite comics from the zine.
Learn it first then teach it to everyone
