The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”
"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.
Okay. I started this in August, and I need to end it with the new year.
In Dishonored, there is a division of the Abbey of the Everyman (a religious faction in the game) called the Oracular Order. There isn’t much more than a mention of them in the game, but I really like the idea and so I wanted to go ahead and try designing one of the nuns. Overall, I’m pretty happy with it! There are some things I’d do differently (like more research…), and I feel like it may be a bit over-designed, but it was a learning experience nonetheless.
A lot of it was based on pre-existing designs from the game, so a ton of credit due to those who worked on it. My thanks to them for the creation of one of my favorite video games.
Qunari are known across Thedas as the brutal horned giants who descended from the north to nearly conquer the continent. These ruthless followers of a harsh philosophy enforce their will through the Ben-Hassrath: their spies and secret police. One brilliant agent did it all, hunting spies, rebels, and deserters until the day he finally broke. To preserve a valuable asset, his superiors sent him to Orlais to observe and report… and The Iron Bull was born.
Today, Bull’s Chargers are famous mercenaries, fiercely loyal to the huge Qunari warrior who leads them into battles and taverns with equal enthusiasm. The Iron Bull still sends the Ben-Hassrath reports, but years of living outside Qunari rules have him wondering which identity is really him. Whoever he is, he’s more than happy to join the Inquisition and get paid to kill demons.
God that transmisogynist asshole is still working at Flight Rising apparently, he just isn’t an administrator anymore. I was looking up threads and he said this:
Again, I am truly sorry to anyone I may have offended by what I said. I hadn’t intended to offend anyone, I promise; I simply failed in that regard. I clearly have a misunderstanding of certain terminology, and my statement was made out of ignorance.
What you said wasn’t a misunderstanding of terminology you literally called trans women men with mutilated genitalia wtf I hate this guy
Down on the West Coast they got a sayin’

There are more asexuals in the world (70 million) than there are people who live in France (66 million) or the UK (64 million). There are about twice as many asexuals in the world as there are Canadians (34 million).
There are more asexuals in the US (32 million) than there are Texans (26 million) or New Yorkers (20 million). There are only slightly more people living in California (38 million).
There are more asexuals living in California (380,000) than there are seats at the Rose Bowl (93,542).
There are more asexuals living in New York City (80,000) than there are seats in Yankee Stadium (50,291).
On a typical 747 jet, there is probably 4-6 asexuals, depending on the airline!
You are not alone.
