I’m kind of cheating here because I did this years ago, buuuut Julie Dillon is holding a mermaid art challenge and, loving mermaids and also being a Pisces, I can’t ignore the call! The challenge goes till March 10, so I’ll try to do something new before then.
This design’s based on the Caribbean Monk Seal - the only Caribbean seal species that I’m aware of - which sadly has been missing for more than fifty years, and was declared extinct in 2008.
The lack of fucks he gives combined with the level of sass he practically sweats is the reason I love Nine more than anything.
ARE YOU TELLING ME
THAT WE WERE PLAGUED
BY THAT FREAKING POST
those were literally the worst weeks of my life

But also that awkward moment when the Forest of Cheem’s sacrifice is relegated to unimportance in Moffat’s world. Her bravery and kindness don’t matter, and she’s turned into yet another cheap joke about women being infatuated with the Doctor.
That she fancied the Doctor did not feature at all in the season 1 episode. She was curious about his origins, she had sympathy for him, and she gave her life so he could save the rest of the people aboard the base. I personally don’t see her fawning over him (like so many of Moffat’s women do). Thus, with no real evidence to draw this from, Moffat seems to be interpreting her sacrifice as “fancying” the Doctor, which is immensely problematic: It suggests that she did this only for him rather than to save everyone on the ship, and it shows yet another example of Moffat thinking that any woman who interacts with the Doctor must be infatuated with him.
Even if she did fancy him, the fact that Moffat considers her actions negligible in comparison to her “crush” is pretty gross, especially when the payoff from this line is so small. All it does in the context of the episode is set up the Doctor as an object of desire. But in the context of the show, it undermines the agency and power of women to act with bravery and integrity without it being all for the Doctor.
lmao i remember complaining about this exact same thing on this exact same gifset back in 2011
additionally THAT’S NOT EVEN HER NAME
her name was Jabe??? this is like saying ‘i met the human race once. they fancied me’

Why be confined to be hiding behind true love? Enough! Please understand, you don’t need a man…
This might be my favourite parody song, all that I need at the end of this is Anna walking on, both of them putting on sunglasses, linking arms and strutting into the distance.
PS - There is not one frame in this entire gifset that doesn’t include a funny face.

Measles has surged back in Europe, while whooping cough is has become a problem here in the U.S.
Childhood immunization rates plummeted in parts of Europe and the U.K. after a 1998 study falsely claimed that the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella was linked to autism.
That study has since been found to be fraudulent. But fears about vaccine safety have stuck around in Europe and here in the U.S.
NPR maps the resurgence of preventable diseases due to public ignorance and lamentable misinformation about vaccines.
Pair with Bill Gates on vaccines, animated.
this is such bullshit
VACCINATE YOUR FUCKING KIDS
V. IMPORTANT (you should probably get your flu vaccine too, jsyk)
herd immunity —- this is NOT how you do it!
The problem with healthy people not get vaccinate is they could survive possibly survive the illness. People who will die from the illness often medically can’t get vaccinated. They rely on herd immunity to not get sick.
That’s the issue with the flu vaccine it will often make vulnerable people as sick as flu but they are they people to whom the vaccine is offered.

Good morning, tumblr. I have the flu and 80mph winds blew down half my garden last night, so I am in a foul mood, and this morning’s news about Ellen Page has not helped matters.
Or, to be more accurate, the reaction to Ellen Page’s coming out has got me damn near ready to…
THIS. So much this.
I came out for the first time at 15. At 25 I’m tired of carefully not mentioning genders or having to come out again if I slip and say she/her/girlfriend/woman. How it changes peoples interactions with me to know I’m gay.
Knowing my extended family would disown me if they knew I was gay. That my sexuality is why my mother doesn’t feel comfortable at church. That being scared people will discover my sexuality is why I don’t feel comfortable at church.
It matters that people in public eye are coming out. It matters that people are publicly talking about the damage the Tories did with Section 28A and making sure it doesn’t happen again.
