This is scary. This is really fucking scary. It's been a long time in the overall making, but the picture that it poses is dangerous.
Think you always have a choice over how to give birth? Think again.

What the FUCK? These Christianists need to be stopped. Cutting a woman open without her permission is the worst sort of battery.

In an era with sex on our fingertips, literally just a swipe away, we have seen an increase of beauty culture that has required Adonis-type bodies to be deemed attractive in the queer community....

Net Neutrality in a nutshell: Amplifying the signal. Here are 14 minutes of your life that are totally worth spending on this video. And yes, you must watch all the way through; it builds and ends on a climax.

More info on the ground radar survey around Stonehenge. Tl;dr. Stonehenge is a small piece of the whole.
Using powerful ground-penetrating radar, investigators working around Stonehenge have detected a trove of previously unknown burial mounds, chapels, shrines, pits — and most remarkable of all — a massive megalithic monument made up of more than 50 giant stones buried along a 1,082-foot-long c-shaped enclosure.

Of course it hasn't. And people ignore the fact that there were just as many vile people under the quote on quote "real name" policy as there are places where people post under pseudonyms, people ignore the fact that pseudonyms allow for a significant amount of safety, et cetera.

Oh and in case folks wonder where I've been, it is just that the only accessible way for me to use G+ remains to be on either my iPhone or my iPad. Neither of these of course usually have a keyboard, although I am looking into a Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad quite soon to make generally everything easier.

All of the modifications that I had made to #G+ on Chrome at some point stopped working. If someone knows how I can currently get a wider main column when it is in one column and #accessibility mode already, that in and of itself would let me be around a lot more. The narrow column is just too narrow for me to track text over. This is without even talking about the annoying extra motion and top bar and things that are harder to change that I had previously resigned myself to dealing with.

I also need to be able to adjust the colours in order to fix some of the very low contrast gray text and such. Unfortunately I just don't have the know-how to actually write the modifications myself. I've also avoided updating the G+ app because I don't know if anything has happened to it that would make it less usable.

So, that's pretty much the state of things.

this is BS, this anonymity thing that entitles everybody to be as mean as they can REALLY needs to stop.

One more for the night, I uh. Basically couldn't resist. Uploading just one seems like too much of a teaser. Same hills and clouds a little closer to the road.

It's been quite a while since I got around to posting any photography. Part of that's just not having been able to sit at the computer I do my postprocessing at for any length of time. Instead, I've been out there taking photos and hopefully once the semester ends, I'll get a lot up here for everyone.

This photo was taken off of the east side of Sesnon, in the hills that border the San Fernando Valley. It's part of an exploration into digital recreation of some of the old film looks, trying to capture something I can never have (as I will never be able to work with film processing chemicals because of asthma, film is expensive, and other limiting factors), perhaps, but rewarding nonetheless. I love how the clouds end up looking, and I love how it doesn't end up feeling 'shopped or faked, but somehow organic, like it grew out of the mind and the earth. Anyway, I'm rambling and I should get to bed, but I hope everyone else is doing well too.

I miss G+, I just don't have the right time or space for it as much in my life when school's like this.
