This Seahorse Needs Contours

I'm Melissa, I'm in college, I like birds, and I have a lot of opinions.

She/her pronouns.

barbidreamdumpster:

if you want to ask a bisexual or asexual person about their sexual history to verify that they’re queer, but you don’t want them to take it the wrong way, try this useful communication technique:

give them twenty dollars and go away.

Also: please let me know if I haven’t been tagging things properly. Feel free to request blacklist stuff. I want you all to be safe and happy.

So hungry but I must be strong. Fogo in 100 minutes.

a differential is a change in a variable that is so infinitesimally small that it’s /basically/ zero (but not quite & it doesnt work like 0 so dont let any real mathematicians know i said that). they can be negative.

Also -0 is a thing in computer science. [The way floating point numbers are encoded in most machines, there is both +0 and -0.]

ooooh i didn’t know this that’s even better

Yep. On a 32 bit machine, 80000000 is -0 and 00000000 is +0, if you interpret the bits as a floating point number. [However, most machines do integers in two’s compliment, which means that there is no /integer/ -0, only floating point -0.]

I don’t feel like going into detail or anything but like, weight loss culture fucked with my brain a whole bunch and I know I’m not alone in that. I resent it a good deal, as should everyone, to be honest.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
It's not a bad thing to want to lose weight, being overweight my entire life I've always craved to be thinner. Losing 13 lbs so far has made me feel incredibly more energetic. I hate fat shaming, but weight loss is not always about conforming to societies expectations. Being 5ft tall and over 200 pounds has deff effected my ability to preform day to day tasks. I find it comforting when women like me are able to lose the pounds as well..health is a huge factor in my weight loss..
mathjargon mathjargon Said:

Nowhere in that past did I say “do not lose weight under any circumstances”. All I said was:

  • Destroy weight loss culture.
  • Destroy the notion that weighing less is better.
  • Destroy before and after photos that frame thinner bodies as superior.
  • Destroy weight as a benchmark for health.

Also, your body is not everyone’s body. What benefits you does not work for everyone else. Recognize that weight is possibly the worst standard you could use to track your personal health, and that weighing less is not a gold star guarantee for better health. Thanks.
