The first gay marriage proposal in the White House.
An active duty U.S. Marine Corps captain made history over the weekend by becoming the first gay man to pop the question to his partner at the White House.
In the photo: Matthew Phelps proposing to his partner, Ben Schock. Congrats to the couple, and may their journey be happier than ever.
this is beautiful to see
OKAY YEAH LET’S TALK ABOUT TAMIKA FLYNN BECAUSE SHE’S SO IMPORTANT
So not only is Tamika a teenage girl (the most hated of all creatures) she’s, in my opinion, the most important character in this story. Actually one of the most important characters I’ve ever come across.
Tamika’s a 13 year old WOC, a group historically kept “in their place” with illiteracy, but we first heard of her when she saved the city’s schoolchildren from murderous librarians, all while completing a reading list way above her age level. Well done, Tamika.
And yeah, I noticed the “stocky” comment. I too punched the air at the “stocky” comment. Because not only is she a 13 year old WOC, she’s Not Thin. Not exactly someone who gets to be included most of the time, let alone written as the hero.
And yet here she is, Tamika Flynn, kicking multiple asses all over the damn place, literally taking down helicopters with slingshots and leading the city to revolution. And if that hasn’t convinced you this podcast is the tightest shit then get outta my face.
TAMIKA. FUCKING. FLYNN.
last week my friend jessi took some amazing pictures of me, with and without makeup. and i wanted to share them, even if i find them quite shocking.
YES! thank you again darling for being such an amazing model for my photography class project
they turned out amazing
Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors
Memories may be passed down through generations in DNA in a process that may be the underlying cause of phobias
Memories can be passed down to later generations through genetic switches that allow offspring to inherit the experience of their ancestors, according to new research that may explain how phobias can develop. Scientists have long assumed that memories and learned experiences built up during a lifetime must be passed on by teaching later generations or through personal experience. However, new research has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. Researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, found that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. The results may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias – it may be based on the inherited experiences of their ancestors.
