🏞 Please consider the environment before printing this toot

If you ever think you have poor judgement, please remember that the 1908 editor of Puck magazine thought this image was a sick burn against suffragettes.

Oh, and while I've got my art brain on, here's a fella I finally decided I'm done with. Decided to leave his mane rough'n'shaggy, in part out of laziness, in part out of the fact that I don't want to wait a week (or more, thanks to summer humidity) every time I add a new slop of colour.

So: Have a rainbow lion :D

"Gay Pride" was not born of a need to to celebrate being gay, but our right to exist without persecution.

Gentle reminder that being "self-sufficient" and a "self-starter," and pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, and even just living on your own and expected to be able to do everything for yourself, is actually a highly unnatural state of affairs for human beings which only became the norm in a small number of countries less than a century ago.

I realized I don't have enough money to pay my rent, so if you want to help me you can either:
- buy something from my shop
- support me on ko-fi
- boost this toot
Thanks a lot and have some cute foxes πŸ’™

For context, I am currently doing a science degree with the intention of becoming a researcher. The biggest thing I am worried about is having to complete a phd while being paid very little, and most likely even once I finish my phd, since I live in a capitalist society and will have to use all of that money just to survive. Although I still plan on going into research, if surviving becomes too difficult, I may have to abandon my dream.

I know someone who loves maths and is doing a maths degree, but decided to not go into academia due to obvious capitalist issues such as needing money to survive.

We do not need capitalism for science or art. It is actively suffocating us while pretending to be on our side.

People who think that there would be no scientists or "innovation" without capitalism seem to be living in some imaginary world where scientists get paid a lot. People become scientists *despite* capitalism. Capitalism tries to sabotage science at every turn.

This Fibonacci joke is as bad as the last two Fibonacci jokes you heard combined

Ace and aro people: I see you, and I still love and support you. Y’all don’t need permission from anyone to feel valid. Keep on being you

@alyxgalaxy With some prior notice I'd try to make it wholesome, making sure everyone here knows how lovely they are!

Without any prior notice? Probably something foolish, but my luck is such that things would break just before I "Deleted & re-drafted" after noticing a glaring typo. :blobsweats:
