For those you who want to act aghast that I’d use a term like “rape insurance” to describe the proposal here in front of us, you should be even more offended that it’s an absolutely accurate description of what this proposal requires. This tells women that were raped and became pregnant that they should have bought special insurance for it. By moving forward on this initiative, Senate Republicans want to essentially require Michigan women to plan ahead and financially invest in healthcare coverage for potentially having their bodies violated and assaulted. Even worse, it would force parents to have similar and unthinkably terrible discussions about planning the same for their daughters. I’ve said it before and I will say it again: This is by far one of the most misogynistic proposals I’ve ever seen in the Michigan legislature. — Michigan Sen. Gretchen Whitmer (D). The Michigan GOP, backed by Right to Life of Michigan, just forced through a bill requiring separate abortion coverage in a rarely-used, veto-proof vote. It is opposed by doctors, patients, and even by current Republican Governor Rick Snyder. (via bebinn)
I am sitting here angrily clutching my face, trying to figure out the last remaining story beats for Canary 751. Every time I try to address some of the blank spots of the film to fill in, I come up against a wall. I may be forcing it too much, and if so I’ll come back to it when my head is clearer….

[So at the end of season 7, Dean had a new jacket, but then it didn’t make it out of purgatory…] Ohh the jacket. Let me get a drink of water now. So yeah….so the jacket, for those of you who don’t know…there’s a jacket. That leather jacket that I had on in purgatory? It was designed for me, like, I had jacket designers come to the set, they took measurements, and we started talking about how we wanted this jacket to be. And I was like, okay I need a gun pocket here, a blade pocket here, a mic pack pocket here, just all these different pockets and how I wanted it to fit and all this stuff. So went through all this trouble, and they made this really cool jacket, and um, I guess the color came out a little wrong, and the producers hated it. And they’re like, “get rid of the damn jacket.” So episode 1 of season eight, I come out of purgatory and I find the campers, and I grab his flannel shirt, and I rip the jacket off and that’s the last you see of it. So now that’s two leather jackets I’ve lost! —
This is actually a thing! It probably really was the colour- Everyone remarked how pretty it was, I couldn’t get over how red it was for TV. Red on the RGB scale for TV is an eye-strain and there are studies saying that it can cause emotional responses that make the viewers scared or angry if overused, so they try to reduce it as much as possible unless they’re going for those effects (such as Hannibal, or any violent or gory scene). The only show I can think of where they use as much red as possible without emotion-mapping it is Glee, and even then, the characters wearing red were sort of villains for a while, weren’t they? And competition, even singing and cheerleading, is a sort of aggression.
Anyway the point is, it was red. And it was something worth praising, just this nice piece of material and more than that it was something that the character had gotten at a point of growth just for himself, something that fit and looked good and looked good on him. But it was too red. You have to balance red in shots, you have to. So instead they took it out.

As I’ve said yesterday, I like to keep personal things personal. That being said, I’ve recently come across some posts about a terrible rumor that I would like to address, because I know how fast things like that spread on this website, and this is making me really sad and mad at the same time.
Read mored, I apologize deeply if you are on mobile.

What if oxygen is poisonous and it just takes 75-100 years to kill us?
My science teacher said he thinks that’s true actuallyYeah this is actually pretty much exactly what is going on. It’s why anti-oxidants are such a big deal. Bonus fact: oxygen oxidizes stuff in your cells or, in other words, it’s not toxic, just setting you on firevery very slowly.
