The Study of Dith

humor and humanity in the life of an American in Canada

Jesus was a radical, non-violent revolutionary who hung around with lepers, hookers and crooks; wasn’t American and never spoke English; was anti-wealth, anti-death penalty, anti-public prayer (M 6:5), but was never anti-gay; never mentioned abortion or birth control; never called the poor ‘lazy’; never justified torture; never fought for tax cuts for the wealthiest Nazarenes; never asked a leper for a co-pay; and was a long-haired, brown-skinned, homeless, community-organizing, anti-slut-shaming, Middle Eastern Jew.

The only thing that would make these secret room bookcases cooler is if you activate them by pulling out a special, secret book :)

clothesansbuttons has one of these! It’s the best!

Scientists discover the animal kingdom’s first ‘female penis’

tanacetum-vulgare:

One more fun example for arguing that both gender and sex are much more complicated than we like to think. 

Gender is “cultural” while sex is “biological” suuuure but check out this biology! She sucks sperm out of the male with her penis, and takes like 40-70 hours to do it. Amaaaazing. 

Yes! It’s all spectrum.

The Exciting Thing About Orange Is The New Black's Season Two Trailer

Piper Chapman is the protagonist of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black. But Taylor Schilling’s Brooklyn-dwelling yuppie spending a year in prison isn’t the star of the show, not really. That honor goes to the wide ensemble of her fellow inmates—characters like Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren, Galina “Red” Reznikov, and Sophia Burset, all of whose stubborn pride in the face of mistreatment by the world provides the series’ hilarious, heartbreaking appeal.
The show’s creator, Jenji Kohan, seems to realize this fact, saying that the white, middle-class Piper was the “Trojan Horse” that allowed her to secure funding and viewership for a show with such a diverse cast. In the first season, Schilling did a fine job portraying a woman whose false cheer and sense of superiority slowly, necessarily erodes in her new environment. But now that Orange Is the New Black has built a devoted following that fills Tumblrs full of GIFed quips from secondary characters, the best thing it could do in its sophomore set of episodes would be to ease up on Piper’s screen time so we can better know the other women at Litchfield.
Happily, the trailer released today hints that might be what happens when the show returns on June 6th.

I love that Piper is a Trojan Horse for the ensemble cast!!!
