I AM A:
Feminist, Environmentalist, craftivist, tea drinker, and cat lover.
I love discussing and blogging about fatshion, body positivity, feminism, art, music, issues of social justice, pop culture and all the places that these topics intersect.
So my grandfather died, just like the doctors told us. Almost, anyway. They told me Christmas, and he didn’t see Halloween. He barely made it to his 39th wedding anniversary; he passed less than a week later.
And I cried and I cried. And I saw him in his coffin, and couldn’t help but think how healthy he looked, and how he didn’t look at all like how he looked that night he passed. How I kissed his cheek and held his hand, and my partner lifted him out of bed so easily.
My grandfather died, and I am still here. I put his glasses on my shelf, right next to my vintage camera collection. Old things that all belonged to someone dead now. But now they’re mine, and I love them.
I wish I had been hatched from an egg.
Dealing with my mother is going to be the end of me, I swear. I will not have reprieve from the stress she brings me until the day she dies.
She’s toxic, and I’m too weak to completely cut her out from my life.

Okay so anyway, evidence for this theory is the following:
THE FACT THAT HUMANS ARE SO HAIRLESS:
Only two kind of habitats give rise to hairless animals, an aquatic one and a one below the ground (a naked mole rat for example)
The suggestion that humans have become hairless to prevent overheating has been rendered false because hair can act like a defense against the sun.
This is why camels retain their fur even in the hot dessert environment.
OUR FAT CELLS
We have ten times the number of fat cells as expected in an animal our size. Only two types of animals have large fat cells: hibernating and aquatic ones.
In hibernating it’s seasonal fat, but in aquatic it’s all year round. It’s unreasonable to think that we evolved this feature in land because large fat pockets would have just slowed us down.
Primate babies are always born slender, but human babies start to develop fat even before birth.
WALKING ON TWO LEGS
So we’re the only mammals that have developed bipedalism. This is a surprise, because walking on 2 legs vs. walking on 4 legs is very disadvantageous. It’s slower, unstable, our organs are vulnerable to damage.
One theory is that if our habitat was flooded, we’d have to walk on two legs to keep our heads above the water.
The only animal who has ever evolved a pelvis like ours, the swamp ape, used this method.
We have conscious control over our breathing. Every other land animal doesn’t. Mammals like dolphins and seals also conscious control because it tells them how deep they are going to dive and they can estimate how much air they need to inhale.
Our body is so wasteful of salt and water. Think of tears and our way of sweating. Other land mammals don’t have this. Water mammals do however.
Okay anyway I hope you learned something.
