It was more like a savory pastry, delicately little dough pocket filled with tomato sauce, cheese, and seasoned meat. Just a stunning culinary innovation. It was a calzone. It was literally just a mini calzone.

This three-legged decorated war hero had one leg lost to surgery after taking four rounds from an AK-47.

Bad. Mother. Fucker.

 Those eyes say “Pretend to throw the tennis ball. I dare you to only pretend.”

I think those eyes say a lot more than that. He’s seen more than I ever will, done more than I’ll ever do, and his war will never be over.

He’s got Ranger scrolls on his collar. That dog is a god damn hero.

I just noticed the Purple Heart and that Scroll.Wow. Just wow. The picture alone, in all it’s detail says a lot of things. god damn.

I can’t not reblog this dog… his youEyes say so much

I’ve never seen a dog with such a face like that. Like an old man who went to war and if you ask him about he just stiffens up and face turns to stone. 

Layka is a lady dog. Let’s remember that.
Now, it’s an understandable problem - our socialization instantly encourages us to see this rugged, sleek, military animal as a male. Three-legged hero dog with military decorations and stern-appearing eyes? TOTALLY A DUDE DOG, JUST LOOK AT HIM. It’s a programmed response, and nothing to be ashamed of - let’s just be accurate and note that Layka’s a female.
I’ve highlighted all the reblogs above where Layka is described as a hero, an old man, with male pronouns - rather than the fierce, charming heroine she is. It’s kind of a teachable moment: how does an image of an animal, displaying absolutely no secondary sex characteristics, instantly give us these fictional headcanons about its gender and gender performance? It’s an impressive demonstration of our ability to translate body language.
The photographer who took this compelling shot noted that Layka’s playful, bouncy energy made it nearly impossible for him to get a shot with her mouth closed! He ended up having to stop using the tennis ball he was using to get her attention, because it made her too excited and smiley. Based on the photos below, I think she’d have quite a sense of humor about the “where’s the tennis ball?” game!

Of course, the photographer did end up connecting with a fundamental aspect of Layka’s nature in the cover photo; her serious, soldier side. But that’s not all the animal is. Does the dog in the unused shots still resemble an “old man?” Is the dog in the unused shots male or female? Is it still a hero with its tongue out? Is it still admirable without a “face like stone?”
This is what I mean when I say that we have to examine the lenses of culture and society that we are always, always looking through when we talk about science biology.

Why are you psych analyzing people for calling a dog by the wrong gender why does this happen on tumblr

because it’s an example of the actual sexism human women deal with in real life. That the default is male. That heroes are stoic, serious, and masculine.

Layka is so smiley in person that the photographer struggled to get her to pose "seriously."

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?



except this isn’t anything to do with internet searching but searching books for phrases so

becky why the hell would a book mention pokemon in 1870

time travelers writing them obviously. it’s so obvious.

GIVEAWAY!
This is the first giveaway I’ve ever done. Ever. I’m excited to spread the comic love, but nervous it won’t get spread as much as I hope. So please! Reblog and share this with your friends!
What I’m giving away are Issues 1—5 of Ms. Marvel (I know issue #6 is pictured, and that’s my mistake, but only 1—5 will be part of the first volume, hence why those are the ones you’ll be getting). They are all in mint condition, kept in plastic covers, etc. I just don’t have the first print of the first issue, which is why it’s blue.
The Rules (read these! seriously!):
Open to U.S. residents only. Sorry :(
The contest will be open for one week and ends August 6 at midnight EST; I may extend it if there aren’t that many participants.
I’m not looking for followers; there is no reason to follow me, unless you want to. All I ask is that you like and reblog the post so I know you’re at least somewhat serious about it.
And finally… no boys. I make it a point to read and buy comics that don’t feature the typical Straight White Male™ and want the comics I’ve purchased to be passed on to people who can identify more with them. (If you are non-binary, I trust you to use your discretion when participating).
I’m doing this because while I like supporting my local comic book shop, I’m not really fond of holding onto individual issues. Hopefully this giveaway is successful, since I’d like to do more of them. However, I ain’t made of money, so my pull list isn’t that large, meaning I can’t do this too too often and there might only be like, four titles available in total for me to giveaway. If YOU would like this to happen more often, you can donate to my PayPal (the link is on the side of my page or here).
I promise that any money donated will be used to purchase and giveaway comics. Shoot me a message to suggest titles, either for pulls or graphic novels, because this is, essentially, for you all. If the donate thing doesn’t go over well, no big deal; I’ll donate any money that was received to a kickstarter that supports women/minorities in comics. So whatever the outcome, I won’t be using anything that’s been donated in goodwill for personal use. That’s the type of behavior that ruins something like this, and that’s the opposite of what I want happening.
Thanks and good luck!
