Denying gay and bisexual men the opportunity to donate blood based on their sexual orientation is an outdated and discriminatory practice. We’ve advanced in our medical knowledge of HIV transmission and know transmission depends on behavioral risk factors. Donor screening for gay and bisexual men should be the same as for all other people and be based on a risk assessment of behaviors, rather than on sexual orientation

This skull at the University of Kansas Natural History Museum is the first Triceratops ever put on display anywhere. It was recovered by Barnum Brown and Elmer Riggs when they were students there and has been on view since 1895.

Why should I retract my claws for you?
What do I earn from playing nice?
I’ll choke on the cries I leave in my throat.
I am not sorry.
If I am angry, I will be angry.
I will be blinding light
I will be rage and shaky hands
I will be venom and teary eyes
I will not laugh at your jokes
I will not tuck my fangs away to smile for you.
I will look you dead in the eye
I will spit out teeth that are not mine.
Who likes my new shoes?
This sculpture by Issac Cordal in Berlin is called “Politicians discussing global warming.”
