Investigative Escapism

Misanthropic: Disliking humankind and humanity. I actually love people--I just love irony and wordplay. This blog contains swears, but nothing sexually explicit. I'm a 22 year old Christian, white cis-female. A fandom blog, but with a side dish of wit. Message me anytime.

"For there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus"

-Galatians 3:28

Here Paul is talking about unity in the church. Race, class, and gender. All are reconciled at the cross. We know they are not erased, because Rev. 7:9 says every nation, tribe, and tongue worships the LORD. Your culture, your class, your gender do not disappear. But they are reconciled—each is brought to Christ to be used beautifully by him, and to join the rest of the Church as one. There is nobody above anyone else- we were all sinners who received grace. To God there is no hierarchy among people. Just one body in Christ.

When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

Night Of The Cemetery Bats
Seth Magle, who directs the Urban Wildlife Institute in Chicago, suspects that most of the species of bats found in cities are using cemeteries as habitat, or to forage for food. But cemeteries aren’t just great places for spooky things like bats.
Like parks, golf courses and other urban green spaces, cemeteries can provide a refuge for all sorts of wildlife, including red foxes, skunks, woodchucks, opossums, white-tailed deer and beaver, Magle says, as well as fox squirrels, gray squirrels and “all the sort of usual urban residents that you would expect — rats and house mice and things of that nature.”

You know you had a Catholic upbringing when somebody says “May the force be with you” and your instant reaction is to reply with “And also with you”.

Lift up your lightsabers.

We lift them up to the lord.

Let us give thanks to the Force our guide.

It is right to give the Force thanks and praise.

Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).
