Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission.

Do NOT out anyone.

Got it?

Okay.

this is also a less important point, but still worth noting: DO NOT “come out” as an ally. don’t you dare.

Also - don’t feel pressured to come out. You don’t have an obligation to put yourself in an unsafe situation for any reason.

Most people who are new or not into fish keeping say,” I don’t want big fish tanks, because they require more work!”
More water makes it look that way, but the truth is that larger tanks are easier to take care of.

What, but how?imageImagine that the red dots are how much waste Mr. Fishy creates in one week- that’s 9 dots. On the left is the waste in a small tank and on the right is the waste in a big tank. The water in the small tank is more toxic because there’s more waste per part of water, but the big tank has less toxic water because there’s less waste per part of water.

What does this mean?

For the small tank, more water changes have to be done weekly to keep water safe for Mr. Fishy.
For the big tank, a smaller weekly water change is only needed to keep water safe for Mr. Fishy.

Here’s a weekly water test from a divided 15 gallon tank for two Siamese fighting fish (betta splendens):

Aside from pH (which should always stay constant), all of the toxins are at zero in my filtered tank. That’s always to be expected from any mature tank. But look at the nitrate! By the end of the week there is nearly zero nitrate, plants help but the size of the tank helps even more. If I didn’t change my water for 3 weeks, the nitrates would still be below 20 ppm- but I still do 10% water changes every week. I don’t have to worry about any catastrophes rapidly occurring.

But my fish doesn’t like big spaces!

If you get a bigger tank, fill it up with plants and ornaments to make your fish more comfortable. If your fish is not doing well in a big tank, it’s not because of water volume. A big empty tank is going to be scary for some fish, a small empty tank can be the same.

Tl;dr: Bigger volumes of water dilutes the daily/weekly amount of waste your fish creates, meaning less frequent/smaller water changes and more stability.

"Creepshot" Photos Are Now Legal in Texas

A Texas state law prohibiting people from taking photographs “with the intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person” if the person being photographed does not consent is unconstitutional, according to the state’s highest criminal court. Under this decision, so-called “creepshot” photos, where men often take photos of unconsenting women that they encounter on the street, are legal in Texas.

[thinkprogress]
sooo this is disgusting

dont ignore this
this is important and a huge step backwards

the case that sparked the ruling is that of a grown man who was charged with “26 counts of improper photography after taking underwater pictures of clothed children - most wearing swimsuits - at a San Antonio water park” according to that thinkprogress article. peter linzer, a professor at the University of Houston Law Center, says,”To think that it’s unlawful to look at a little girl in a swimsuit, when you have lascivious thoughts, in public? And you did not do anything to that child? That cannot be made a crime in the United States,” he said. “The fact that some people might find that very offensive doesn’t change anything. … You can’t prevent someone in public from looking at you and having dark thoughts.” well, mr. linzer, i think violating privacy by taking photos WITHOUT CONSENT of young girls in order to satisfy pedophelia counts as doing something to that child. if you wanna be a nasty pedophile and watch young girls and think dirty thoughts about them, then you’re right, unfortunately the constitution protects your right to do that. but taking ACTION by photographing said young girls to use as sexual stimulation is not only disgusting but federally illegal under the child abuse prevention and treatment act because it is a non-contact sexual act of voyeurism/peeping. it’s time the laws catch up to technology so that sitting around photographing children and women counts as peeping.
recently, massachusetts courts passed a similar ruling on the basis that the law they had at the time banning pictures taken without consent for sexual purposes wasn’t specific enough, but the court created a more specific, constitutional law banning upskirt photos within days. this is what needs to be done in texas to protect the privacy rights of women and children, and prevent them from being turned into sexual objects by predators in public. i urge everyone, regardless of where you live, to contact texas state representatives and senators to make them aware that a law NEEDS to be created similar to massachusetts’ as soon as possible.

Well Tumblr it’s that time of the year again. It’s heart breaking I even have to remind people of this.

As we approach the Halloween season if you have a black cat [especially an indoor/outdoor one] it’s time to make sure they stay inside. Unfortunately around this time of the year people think it’s funny to harass and harm them. It makes me sick to my stomach but some people even go as far as to ‘sacrifice’ them. Most adoption groups won’t even adopt them out during this month. I’ve even heard of people trying to harass them when they see them sitting in windows of houses. It’s horrible and not funny but it’s important to protect them.

So if you or anyone you know has a black cat make sure they are aware of where the cat is. And if you see anyone hurting or harassing them [or any cat!] speak up, they can’t do it for themselves.
