(INDIGNANT HUFFING) NOT ALL M……ale lions

the more i think about it, the weirder this comment seems. how does this man know that being a male lion is more stressful than being a female lion. has he lived as both a female and male lion before. is this man an Animorph

male lions rights activist

as a big cat fanatic and a zoo veteran: 
male lions are lazy fucks. they CHOOSE to fight cos they’re BORED.

As a professional Ethologist who specializes in apex predator and primate behavior, I can fully support this lazy lion notion.See this gorgeous guy? 
This is Zero, the most photographed lion in National Geographic history (so I’ve been told). While his huge frame and two-toned mane make him an intimidating sight, he is essentially the biggest baby I observed while in South Africa.
You would hear these deep roaring moans echo across the reserve… and it was Zero, whining for the girls (Maggie and Lisa) to bring him food. The lazy bum would just roll around in the river bed moaning and groaning until the females would show up with a kill. 
Sure, he could fight if there happened to be a rival male in the area. And his ‘mock charge’ display was intimidating enough to keep just about everyone* out of his way… but 99% of the time this guy was all about moaning (for food), mating, and mane-flips.
* - The only animal not run off by Zero’s display was a honey badger, who - true to form - did not care.

“One year, I taught this (Sociological theory) class and only used female writers. The journals were written by women, the textbook was written by females. Do you know what kind of responses I got on my student evaluations that year? {…} That I was biased, that I was only looking from one point of view… that I was basically a man eater. That’s the kind of things I’d get from the students… The semester before, I used only male writers. Do you think I got any kind of feedback like that then?”

"Not a single word."

"Treetops" 
This is the last piece included in my Imagined Realms book up on kickstarter. I got the idea for this one just a few weeks before launching, and was able to get it wrapped up just in time. :)

“My third grade teacher called my mother and said, ‘Ms. Cox, your son is going to end up in New Orleans in a dress if we don’t get him into therapy.’ And wouldn’t you know, just last week I spoke at Tulane University, and I wore a LOVELY green and black dress.” Laverne Cox, speaking at the University of Kentucky (via so-nyeo-shi-daze)

OOOH LOOK AT THAT HISTORICAL ACCURACY THO

In which fantasy fiction with characters of color is subjected to the “historical accuracy” test and comes out on top once again…

That awkward moment when you’re coming to the end of your job contract and realise that selling your soul to the private sector would be really profitable. And it’s also in an area you’re interested in. And you’re actually very well qualified for the position.

Fuck.

Oh thank god the nearest open position in over an hour away I don’t have to sell my soul to the private industry competitor!

Well turns out there might be positions available in the city I live after all. I am having a serious ethical conundrum right now.

On the one hand: private education institution.

On the other hand: the work really interesting and pays incredibly well. As in, my wages would do significantly more than ” only just about cover the rent and bills” and “actually let me save up for a PhD” paying-well.

Heeeeeelp.
