I have little to no concern for other people’s possessions or emotions.
Italian artist Luigi Prina is a retired architect who has spent the last 20 years designing and hand-constructing incredibly beautiful flying ships. Luigi has now created over 200 flying ships, which hang from the ceiling of his studio, turning it into an extraordinary space.
But these exquisite ships don’t need to hang from a ceiling in order to look like they’re flying. Perhaps the most amazing part of this tale is that Luigi’s delicate flying ships can really fly:
"The designs are made out of very thin paper and balsa wood and the propeller is powered by an elastic band that carries the extremely light vehicles—weighing no more than 2 ounces—through the air. Prina is passionate about aviation and literature and combines those two interests into telling beautiful stories with his winged bicycles and boats."

every time i read “straight people” i automatically picture the pixies from fairly odd parents
These kind of posts make me think bad of gay people. If you want to talk about how straight people are “closed-minded” then just look at this post. How do they expect to ever be respected if they constantly talk about straight people in this way. It really irritates me when I see posts like these.
Finally, some sense. And none of that “though we mustn’t forget women suffer more because vagina” bullshit either. What is so difficult about looking at a set of problems and not seeing completely opposite things depending on who’s on the receiving end.
The attitude towards male victims is usually celebration or denial, even helplines will be hostile towards them, feminist laws ensure the male is always assumed the abuser even if he called while the woman was beating him, feminist run programmes treat them as perpetrators and men more often hide things like this from people, despite this, the figures are still similar to the number of female victims. I’d be willing to bet it’s a hell of a lot more, given the difference in how they’re treated.
Important that she is criticizing this proposed law in this article as well:
Well worth the read everyone.
