Welcome friends and enemies. B9 Kingdom has a new store open up at Topatoco, where you can get some excellent art books from excellent artists. Never forget that. Never forget that good art is just a click away. Please consider helping that art out.

Long ago, I was a pharmacy technician when Viagra first came out and I endured a male customer screaming bloody murder at me when I had to tell him that it wasn’t covered by his insurance. (It was pretty standard that insurance companies wouldn’t cover any new medication for up to six months after its initial release.) He was calling me a bitch and laying all this violence on me and I just had to be like, Sorry about your dick, dude, but do I look like the CEO of your insurance company who decided you have to pay $10 to get hard?

It didn’t take long for Viagra, which is solely used to treat limp dick, to be covered, but it was YEARS before my birth control pill, which treats acne and hirsutism and amenorrhea and PCOS and NCAH and endometriosis and on and on, got covered.

$172m on PENIS PUMPS? We spent one hundred and seventy two MILLION dollars to give tiny dicked jerkoffs some hope of maybe not having as tiny of a dick?!

I’m not sure what’s more shocking (a gender double standard isn’t, sadly) that penis pumps cost $360 a piece or that 477,777 wanted one.

I feel like there are probably valid reasons to want penis pumps, because disability is a thing, and we don’t know everyone’s problems. 

Other than that, I agree with the sentiment!

BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY

ba ba BOOM

*dumbfounded*

Religious people can’t engineer or solve complex problems?

People think this is a smart thing to say?

He’s not saying “religious people”, not at all. Nye isn’t the anti-religious Richard Dawkins type. He’s specifically talking about young earth creationism, the anti-science idea that the planet and universe are 6000 years old and the line is regarding his recent debate with Ken Ham, head of the incredibly racist Creation Museum.

Here’s the thing, the religious people who built the above structures weren’t anti-science, anti-knowledge, anti-learing, these cultures valued these things. When you’re training your child that evolution is an evil lie, that the planet is 6000 years old, that all the natural formations on earth were formed by some physically impossible massive flood, that the craters on the moon were formed by geysers errupting from earth and hitting it during said flood, that dinosaurs were on the ark, that all of humanity came from one dudes family after that flood around 4k years ago, that the son of Noah who was cursed that his descendents would be servants were the ones who went to Africa (a view which has been used to justify slavery extensively, EVEN TO THIS DAY), that the Loch Ness Monster is actually a dinosaur and proof of God’s creation, that ‘secularism’ has corrputed science and turned it against god, etc. etc. etc. then you are seriously disadvantaging that child when it comes to learning anything in the sciences.

Nye isn’t condemning religion, he’s condemning right wing extremist evangelical young earth creationism, and in a wold where a lack in scientific literacy is currently harming our ecosystem and reducing our species odds of survival, and as someone who was raised in this fucked up mindset (the reason I know so much about what they teach is because I was taught it as a child), I think his point holds absolutely true when taken in context.

Thanks for the context

Holy shit, someone got corrected on tumblr and didn’t throw a fit over it. Four for you ileolai.
