Hahahah cats are the greatest
Sanzoku no Musume Ronja (Ronia the Robber’s Daughter) - Character sketches
The new TV series directed by Goro Miyazaki is a collaboration between Studio Ghibli and Polygon Pictures which aired its first two episodes in Japan yesterday.
After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”
The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.
BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?
BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?
The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.
This. Is. Not. OK.
guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons
We already know that reading is awesome, but today we learned that cats enjoy reading too. In Pennsylvania the Animal Rescue League of Berks County has a wonderful program called Book Buddies that invites children in grades 1-8 to visit the shelter and read to their cats.
Kids participating in the program get to improve their reading skills and hang out with cute cats while providing much-desired company for the cats at the shelter awaiting adoption. The ARL says that the “cats find the rhythmic sound of a voice very comforting and soothing.”
And then we get to enjoy these incredibly sweet photos.

First seven days of Inktober! I pursued the theme ‘flowers/plants’.
That’s enough of that. Next personal theme for me will be animals.
I upload my inktober drawings daily on twitter.
