Swimming scallops? This sandy seafloor resident doesn’t stick around—it claps its two shells together and jets off to escape being a sea star’s meal. Try to spot them in our Monterey Bay Habitats gallery(Photo: Steve Johnston)

When men imagine a female uprising, they imagine a world in which women rule men as men have ruled women.

Sally Kempton

It’s been apparent to me for a while that most men can’t really imagine “equality.”  All they can imagine is having the existing power structure inverted.

I cannot decide whether this shows how unimaginative they are, or shows how aware they must be of what they do in order to so deeply fear having it turned on them. (via lepetitmortpourmoi)

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

this makes me so fucking angry .
knowing that my cousins, uncles, nephews, and friends can’t fucking do anything without running the risk of getting caught up with these fucktards with guns . I fucking hate this place, I truly wish death on those who have brought death and harm to my brothers and sisters that truely do and did not deserve it . May the reality of their wrong doing forever haunt them .

Will Darren Wilson ever be arrested?

In general, I think we need to move away from the premise that being a good person is a fixed immutable characteristic and shift towards seeing being good as a practice. And it is a practice that we carry out by engaging with our imperfections. We need to shift towards thinking that being a good person is like being a clean person. Being a clean person is something you maintain and work on every day.We don’t assume ‘I am a clean person therefore I don’t need to brush my teeth.’ When someone suggests to us that we have something stuck in our teeth we don’t say to them ‘What do you mean I have something stuck in my teeth—but I’m a clean person?!’

Dude nailed it. We all need to work at being good. Even if we think we are.

Male Birth Control Is Coming — And No, It's Not Just Another Condom →

Come 2017, the contraception landscape might look very, very different. 

Vasalgel, an up-and-coming non-hormonal form of birth control for men, announced in a press release last week that its preclinical trials on primates had been successful. “If all goes well, [we] will be planning for clinical trials with humans to start next year,” said the release.
