OH before I  go to bed I should convey to you all the weirdest fact I learned today

I learned that when a caterpillar is metamorphosing into a butterfly within the cocoon, it is not, as I previously assumed, slowly growing wings and little antennae and whatever else. If we open a cocoon, apparently what we find is that the caterpillar has actually dissolved into a shapeless goo, from which the butterfly will be formed.

goo.

From which the butterfly is formed.

You can, of course, go the philosophical route with this: are they, then, the same creature, pre- and post- this complete reconstitution of the self? If the very brain, the nervous system, has been completely reassembled, how do we identify this as in any way the same?

So here’s the kicker.

Apparently one scientist figured he’d test this out by training a bunch of caterpillars to react negatively to a specific scent, which they would normally not react negatively to. This was all done prior to the cocoon stage.

And these butterflies. These post-goo, completely remade selves? They reacted negatively to the scent, too.

OKAY GOODNIGHT

here’s the source for that

EXCELLENT THANK YOU

do you ever just think about someone and immediately get really happy because their mere existence is a source of joy to you

trans folks should not be just a footnote in feminist classes (or anywhere.) You don’t get to spend one or two class periods talking about transgender issues and then go right back to using language that erases the existence of transgender people as soon as you’re done.

stylinsmut:

why are people saying you should “respect everyone’s opinions”

no you shouldn’t

homophobic, racist, and sexist opinions should not be respected because there’s no reason to respect them

Every time I see anything new about Amethyst I love her even more goddamn
