Scientists have discovered the animal kingdom first female penis.
They have also discovered a new way to make me say “Well, goddamn”.

“Contrary to popular belief, the presence or absence of certain sex organs isn’t the determining factor when deciding which animal of a species is female and which is male.”

YO CISSEXISTS WHO LIKE SCIENCE SO MUCH. CHECK THIS OUT.

It’s down to gonads, right? Ovaries vs. testes?

Since not all organisms have organs that look like typical ovaries or testes, it’s actually the size of the germ cells that determines sex, as far as I am aware. Small (often motile) cells = sperm = male. Large cells = eggs = female. Or as the article states: 
"Contrary to popular belief, the presence or absence of certain sex organs isn’t the determining factor when deciding which animal of a species is female and which is male. In fact, biologists don’t use sex chromosomes either. They actually rely on the size of an animal’s gametes — sperm in males and oocytes in females. As the rule goes, females are the sex that contribute the largest gametes, whereas males are the sex that contribute the smallest gametes and therefore expend the least amount of energy on producing these cell”
Then there are organisms in which you can’t really divide it into two sexes, so you have to talk about “mating types” instead (yeast etc).

whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal

Anonymous asked: Hi there, I was just wondering if I can get some advice. I want to tell my family about being a therian but I'm a little afraid. I mean they've freaked out over lesser things and they are VERY conservative and christian so I'm sure they would think I'm crazy? Should I just save myself the stress and leave it alone?

Whenever thinking about telling someone about something personal, whether that be therianthropy or something else, you must first think of this:

  • Why do you want to tell them?

Is there a certain reason? Have they been asking about things related to therianthropy (your behaviour, what websites you visit etc) and you want to give an honest answer? Do you want to be able to be more yourself with your family? Do you wonder if anyone of them is therian too?

Think about this, ponder the possible advantages of telling them. Then compare with the possible disadvantages. If the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, then tell them. But if they do not, do not tell them. You don’t have to tell anybody about your therianthropy if you don’t want to.

And if you do tell someone, remember that how you say it will be just as important as what you say. Do not make it dramatic - it frightens people. The best is usually to hint at it for a long time, letting them get used to it before telling them the word “therianthropy”.

A lot of things I started doing or enjoying that people told me “it’s just a phase” has stuck with me. Fluke, or am I subconsciously trying to rebel by being stubborn?

I mean, I’ve heard “oh, you’ll get over it” about everything from liking Pokémon to being bisexual, really. Still a poké-nerd, still bisexual, still therian, still like jpop and refuse coffee…

I don’t wear ties to school any more though.
