Anonymous asked: Have you heard of the sooty owl? They are frightening and their eyes are probably hell portals.


i DID actually while i was looking up owls a while back oh MAN they have incredible faces, like some kinda confused ghost who ended up in a bird and now just has to live with it


looks like they come in lesser and greater sooty flavors, and theyre both pretty similar except for their sizes (about 43 cm for the greater, 37 for the lesser)


theyre like someone took a barn owl and just lowered the brightness, threw some speckles in there, made their eyes a direct portal to the infinite nightmarish abyss, called it a day


the YOUNG SOOTY OWLS on the other hand dont even look like real animals. they look like someone made a dodo out of felt and accidentally left it in a dryer. owls are great

donotchoosesidesyet asked: /raises hand. I actually *never* understood the apparent need for real life names on public accounts. I grew up solidly in the era of "whatever you do don't give out your IRL name or you'll be kidnapped and murdered," so this shifting zeitgeist to the Facebook era of real names on everything baffles me. What's the positive angle on that?


The positive angle is that if you insult an established person their fans will shame you. Like, the RNP stopped reddit anti-feminists from making me delete hundreds of shitty comments from my videos because they didn’t wanna have to deal with the actual stigma of it. But that’s because I am a middle class white male with a good command of English writing.

But if there is no stigma associated with stuff like pinching random women’s rears in public for a “prank” then the RNP actually acts in the opposite direction. So the protection I enjoy is actually the protection the harassers enjoy via RNP when making fun of people who are not socially accepted or socially expected to defer to white dudes (e.g., trans women or black men).

That said, “Stranger Danger” for online stuff has always been overblown just like Stranger Danger for real life stuff. Children are <i>way</i> more likely to be abused or assaulted by family members and friends even if you normalize for kids that are outside a lot. So you were raised in an overly paranoid environment.

The same is true of people who might be “outed” with a non-polar gender or sexuality, they’re way more likely to get shit from their local environment than roving gangs of internet harassment weenies, though you and I both know that the roving gangs of harassment weenies do in fact exist. They’re just Not The Scariest Thing That Can Happen.
