The Voluptuarian Wolfess

teal-deer:

The Satanic Temple follows the tenets of LaVeyan Satanism. Among those tenants are:

  • One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
  • The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forego your own.
  • Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.

This means under no uncertain terms that telling a Satanist woman that she can’t have an abortion is against her religion, as it violates her freedom, does not conform to our best scientific understanding of the world, and violates the idea that her body is inviolable and subject to her will alone. 

What the Temple is saying is that according to their religion, Satanist women do not have to be subjected to state mandated so-called “Informed Consent” materials (really bullying propaganda designed to scare women out of abortions) and that only the woman has the right to decide whether or not she wants an abortion

The website linked above also includes a letter you can print out and hand to your doctor stating that your deeply held religious beliefs mean that your bodily autonomy cannot be violated. 

Here’s an article from The Raw Story about it. 

In short:

thanks satan

Oh my g—Satan, I guess.

Wow.

The number of times I’ve seen people with white GSDs, malamutes, and huskies being passed off as “Arctic wolves” is staggering - and frankly, rather aggravating to boot. Just because a dog has a white coat, upright ears, a long tail, and pale eyes, does not mean it’s a wolfdog. Here are examples of true white wolfdogs of varying content for comparison: 
Above is a high-content wolfdog. Note that this animal has a very narrow arrow-shaped skull, small angular eyes, lanky build, and rounded, well-furred ears. It also has dark pigmentation on its nose and around its eyes. This animal has many physical characteristics of a true white wolfdog.

Above is another high-content animal. It displays even more wolfy characteristics, including the cow-hocked stance of its back legs, pre-caudal gland on the tail, and large finger-like digits on its paws. They are not compact little ‘cat feet’ as seen on huskies.
But these are high-content animals. Low-content ones are much harder to distinguish, right?
Yes, and no. There are still many differences between a white wolfy-dog, and a real white wolfdog. The trick is to look past the coloration. Here’s an example:
The above pup is a low/low-mid content wolfdog. Compare that to a white GSD/husky mix: 

The difference should *hopefully* still be very apparent, as the physical build of the wolfdog differs greatly from that of the GSD/husky mix. He’s got well-furred rounded ears, defined cheek ruff, and almond-shaped eyes.
Here’s yet another example to drive the point home: 
Can you guess which of these two has wolf content?


If you guessed the bottom pup, you are correct. Even though it has what appear to be blue eyes and a pink nose, it’s still got wolf traits that the upper pup does not, including a heavy cheek ruff, smaller eyes compared to skull size, hare feet instead of cat paws, and a longer, narrower muzzle.
His lack of color is admittedly unique for a wolfdog, but it’s important to remember that phenotyping is about looking at the bigger picture, not just a collection of traits on a point system. If the animal has many wolf traits but also has blue eyes, it’s still entirely possible that it’s a wolfdog. This is especially true when it comes to lower-content animals!

Just be fucking honest about how you feel about people while you’re alive.

The world’s 85 richest people have as much wealth as the world’s 3.5 billion poorest.
This statistic was recently released in United Nations report that uses Oxfam figures. It’s also a huge wake-up call for anyone who doesn’t consider income inequality a major issue in global politics. (via micdotcom)
Potter has done too much for me for me to ever want to shit all over it. I’m never going to say: ‘Don’t ask me questions about that’. I remember reading an interview with Robert Smith from The Cure. Somebody said to him: ‘Why do you still wear all that makeup, don’t you feel a bit past it?’ And he said: ‘There are still 14-year-olds coming to see The Cure for the first time, dressed like that. I’d never want to make them feel silly.’ It’s a similar thing with Potter. People are still discovering those books and films. It would be awful for them to find out the people involved had turned their backs on it. Though sometimes, people do come up and say ‘I loved you in The Woman in Black,’ which is really sweet. That’s them knowing that it matters to me that I’ve done other stuff.
