Pink Robots & Percolation


Everyone needs to see this video of David Byrne trying to explain that Annie Clark (St. Vincent) is his friend but being completely confused by friendship as a concept

Women have always been healers. They were the unlicensed doctors and anatomists. They were abortionists, nurses and counselors. They were the pharmacists, cultivating healing herbs, and exchanging the secrets of their uses. They were midwives, traveling from home to home and village to village. For centuries women were doctors without degrees, barred from books and lectures, learning from each other, and passing on experience from neighbor to neighbor and mother to daughter. They were called “wise women” by the people, witches or charlatans by the authorities. Medicine is part of our heritage as women, our history, our birthright.

With some adorable queer cameos by Ramses Rodstein, Ajapop, Courtney Trouble, and Killer the queer porn cat, Chelsea Poe elegantly discusses queer identity, how she likes to fuck, her new movie, and her advice for queer young adults everywhere!

<3  Chelsea’s scene in Trans Grrrls with Maxine Holloway challenged everything I (thought I) knew about porn.

I have a question FOR SCIENCE!


(Okay it’s less for science and more because I want to make a point.)

What have the COMPANIONS of Doctor Who inspired you to do?

Did you go on a trip? Help someone in need? Become a Doctor or a nurse or a journalist? Did you study chemistry so you could learn to make nitro 9 or take a class in archaeology?

Let me know! The more details the better!

Martha Jones got me through my first months of med school! She is obviously bad ass and brilliant, so if she can be uncertain about hearing an extra heart, I can be uncertain about hearing extra heart sounds. But also, to trust myself and have confidence that I’m right <3




i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.

See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.

You are a good man, Sir Patrick Stewart.
