I read an anecdote from someone whose African Grey didn’t particularly get along with her Amazon parrot, Paco. One night she was preparing cornish hens for dinner, while the grey hung out with her in the kitchen. He got a closer look at one of the hens, looked his mama dead in the eyes and asked, “Paco?” Then he laughed.
that is one sadistic bird
I am slightly afraid now.
I love birds?
African Grey Parrots are one of the smartest birds, and seems they can be known to play “jokes” or “pranks” on their owners or any visitors.
I was visiting a friend of the family one time and I was just casually watching tv when I thought I heard the water running. I go into the kitchen but everything’s fine. the parrot looks at me and says “gotcha”.
Parrots are awesome.
Normandy landing that you didnt see. 1944
Red Cross workers.
That is seriously the most badass thing I’ve ever seen.

fun fact, there’s a manga that features various stories about intersex individuals and the struggles they face in a society where one can only be “male” or “female”
it’s called IS and you can read it here.

that’s enough blood loss to die twenty times
people with vaginas are metal as fuck
euletoaster hat gesagt: One of the older versions of my conlang Iri incorporated hand signs and facial expressions, but I couldn’t keep track of them so I don’t use them anymore. But I still think it’s a really cool idea.
yeahh keeping track of conlang signs can be tricky. =/ but that concept would def be super neat, so if someone wants to do it they should! like it’s a Good Conlang Idea.
I read a book once with a species whose language combined sound and body language, to the point where it would be impossible to understand from just hearing. Coloration played a minor role (they had the ability to change color on some parts of their skin), but one could simply use careful phrasing to avoid ambiguity in conditions of low light, for example. In the book, it was stated that that prevented them from ever developing written language, until their technology reached the point where audiovisual recordings became possible, but that seems implausible to me. It might make alphabetic-style writing impossible (though even there I’m not sure of that, you could probably have characters for particular “visual phonemes”), but logographic writing should be perfectly possible.
Also, when the users of that language attempted to learn a human language, they would attempt to incorporate similar body language, copying whatever posture the speaker was in when they taught them a word. (e.g., speaker was holding some squid out to display them and taught them the word for “squid” - so they thought that holding their arm out was part of the word!)
One of my scifi species are all deaf and communicate with sign language. They also have six arms, so I wouldn’t even TRY to conlang that one.
You don’t call real women manic pixie dreamgirls. you don’t bitingly reference Gillian Flynn’s “cool girl" when describing a woman. You don’t accuse women (especially lesbian and bi women) of the male gaze.
These are all aspects of how men see women: one-note, simplistic and fantasies. You don’t blame women for how men gaze at them. You don’t blame women for being reduced by men.
