He plays for the dreamers that forgot how to dream, and the lovers that forgot how to love.

Appropriately for easter, at that angle the blotchy parts of the moon look like a rabbit holding an egg.

It just amazes me how Twitter is so good at exposing how big of an idiot and jackass that otherwise intelligent seeming people are. Like, if all you knew of NGT was his television appearances, you'd think he was pretty great. Thanks to the internet, we've known for a while now how artificial and curated that image is.

"in Europe loving in front of your family and kids is very normal you stupid prude!"

The only place I've seen anyone unironically say this about medieval life is A World Lit Only by Fire, which is one of the worst and least accurate pop history books in the world but has unfortunately colored a lot of popular medieval history "knowledge" because it ended up assigned reading in a lot of college courses. Other claims include

* Medieval peasants had no sense of time and never went much further than their home village, which could lead to them becoming hopelessly lost if they ever left town.

* The focus on religion removed the medieval man's sense of self as an individual human, causing them to frolic naked in the summer due to having no shame.

* Cannibalism was a regular occurrence, as was poverty so great that you were left naked in an empty hut any time you had a bad year from selling everything you owned.

So basically the medieval countryside was just full of roving bands of nude cannibals. It also had one point where he took a medieval joke about a peasant fainting at the smell of perfume in a city and needing to be revived by waving a shovel of dung under his nose as actual fact that he repeated.

Never forget that one of the numerous sexual harassment allegations against NDT was that he carries around an index card with a list of heavy set actresses on it as proof that women don’t experience body shaming any more than men do.

Medicine needs to be made properly with high standards. Medical history as a whole is riddled with a lot of bullshit and biases that, unfortunately, are contemporary as well as historical, and the contemporary institutions can only improve by recognizing the mistakes of both the far and recent path even if that makes them uncomfortable, such as what you've pointed out about how transmedicalism is uncomfortably penis-focused and shoves trans people into very narrow narratives.

I think what ppl are making fun of is just the idea of 'the existence of medical facilities is bad'. You could argue that OP was merely suggesting a massive institutional shift that provides high-quality medical care more equally and accessibly, but I'd argue such a shift would still produce something we'd call 'hospitals' even if the institution was pretty different. And it can also be read as 'let's just make medicine in our backyards'.

For the record, she's also wrong. People at least put a curtain up and tried to stay quiet. Loudly loving your wife in front of your kids was considered as much of a faux pas as it is today.

I do think there can be an overreaction to even the suggestion of sexual content in American culture - tenfold if it happens to be queer, in which case even chaste hand-holding and the explicit confirmation of being a couple can be seen as 'adult content'.

That does not mean we need to just start sucking dicks in public. People have the right to opt out of seeing that stuff.

If we're being charitable toward NDT, he might have thought he was saying something more like "Great photo! Looks to me like you used a such-and-such lens, because you'd be hard pressed to get a pic like that from a regular cellphone camera. Am I right?" and was just tone-deaf to his own dickishness.

I was willing to cut Tyson a lot of slack as the various stories about him started coming out, precisely because of his association with Sagan (who was one of my childhood heroes). But he just can't seem to stop being a creepy jerk, over and over.

You're not a centrist if the truth is, in fact, somewhere in between two ludicrous extreme arguments. That just makes the people at the extremes crazy.
