Kameron Slade, a fifth-grader from Queens, NY, was scheduled to deliver a speech as part of a school-wide competition at PS 195. But when the principal learned Kameron’s speech was about same-sex marriage, he was ordered to choose a new topic or lose the opportunity to speak. (via)

ETA - Update: Kameron will now be giving his speech to the whole school at a special assembly on Monday.

My heart

My kid will be this cool

I don’t think you understand how fucking amazing this kid is, in the first gif he immediately shows himself to be more understanding of these issues and of the actual terminology of the debate by saying “same gender marriage” instead of “same sex marriage” therefore including an entire wave of activism in the form of pushing through the thought that it should be gender and not sex, allowing gay trans people to also get married and be recognized and to deconstuct the idea of sex=gender. I love this kid. I love this kid so very much.

Close-ups of butterfly wing scales! You should definitely click on these images to get the full detail.

I’ve paired each amazing close-up (by macro photographer Linden Gledhill) with an image of the corresponding butterfly or moth.  The featured lepidoptera* are (in order of appearance):

*Lepidoptera (the scientific order that includes moths and butterflies) means “scaly wing.” The scales get their color not from pigment - but from microscopic structures that manipulate light.

The great science youtube channel “Smarter Every Day” has two videos on this very subject that I highly recommend:

I had a headache today and then decided it had been far too long since I’d last drawn these two together. And then I don’t know what happened.
