The kakapo is one of the rarest parrots in the world:

It’s flightless
It’s the world’s heaviest parrot
It’s possibly the oldest living bird and
It has a subsonic mating boom that can travel several kilometres

*shuffles along a branch*

*bounces along the floor*

Somebody told me these jump on the backs of sheep and eat their flesh and now I’m scared of them

Tara, no no no no no, this is a harmless little herbivorous kakapo. The nasty sheep eating ones are the kea. They’re both fat green parrots found in New Zealand, and they do look a bit alike, but this little guy is harmless, don’t worry.

Ok good everything is alright in the world again :)

I’m disappointed by the decision to change Moana to ‘Spirited’. I am polynesian, and I was excited by the prospect of a Disney princess movie with a polynesian title. Disney didn’t change Lilo & Stitch to some edgy adjective. They respected Hawaiian culture enough to know that it’s fine to have a name like Lilo in the movie’s title. What was so wrong with Moana? What is so wrong with my culture?

I think it’s less a cultural thing and more they’re trying to appeal to boys so they’re not calling anything a Princess movie or having a title that’s too ‘feminine’. They changed ‘Rupunzel’ to ‘Tangled’ for that same reason after all and that’s not a different culture. I’d say the adjectives are a trend, same way we had a bunch called by a description of the fairy tale (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King) followed some called the protagonist’s name (Pocahontas, Mulan, Hercules, Aladdin). So I don’t think it was a racist decision, just a bad one. Moana’s such a beautiful name and would be a much better title.

i’m proud of those grade nine kids who STUCK IT to tony abbott

i can’t believe he dismissed a young woman ‘s question about marriage equality by asking “how ‘bout a bloke’s question… what’s your favourite football team?”

and the kid that responded with “how do you think following in howard’s footsteps by turning back asylum seekers is a good idea?” i’m so proud that boy would have been a child when howard was PM. 
and his subsequent answer was just the most ridiculous (and racist) thing ever.

The next boy asked “DO YOU KNOW IT’S A HUMAN RIGHT TO SEEK ASYLUM IN ANOTHER COUNTRY?”

These kids are heckling the CRAP out of him, these fourteen year olds are shouting YOU HAVEN’T GIVEN US A REAL ANSWER STOP AVOIDING QUESTIONS and their teachers are trying to hush them from yelling at the prime minister of australia.

And every single one of them has their phones out, filming every single uncomfortable squirm.

and one beautiful girl raises her voice and says “why is a man minister for women? and why is a man in control of rights for women?” cue deafening screams of support from her classmates. and when he responds “look… urgh… people are either male or female” and she says “NO. there are actually intersex genders”

there are tears in my eyes. we’re under the control of an idiot right now, but at least the future of our nation will be just fine.

Back when I was younger (and shorter) a guy who liked me (and was shorter than me) asked how tall I am. When I said 6”1 he said I should say 5”13 just to sound shorter.

Because apparently being tall is a bad thing, and dating a girl taller than you makes you less of a man, we can’t change how tall we are but we can pretend so that we fit society’s expectations better. My first boyfriend liked to stand on the step above me and go ‘that’s better’, my Dad used to stand on tip toe in family portraits to be the same height as my mum, and now this guy was trying to ‘put me down’ too. It’s not like I have self esteem or anything. Lets teach young girls that our very genetics are wrong and should be quietened up.

A month or so later that same guy complained about being in the ‘friendzone’.

  • Person at Party: Omg you're not even in heeeels, how tall are youuu?
  • Me: 6"2 :)
  • Person: Oh wowwwww, that's so tall!!
  • Another person turns to his girlfriend and whispers: Unnatural...
  • What I should have said: *Gasp* You're onto me! I'm actually a biologically engineered super human from Mars!
  • I'll have to kill you now you know my secret.
  • What I actually did: Ignored and turned away, don't want to make a scene.
