i DID actually while i was looking up owls a while back oh MAN they have incredible faces, like some kinda confused ghost who ended up in a bird and now just has to live with it
looks like they come in lesser and greater sooty flavors, and theyre both pretty similar except for their sizes (about 43 cm for the greater, 37 for the lesser)
theyre like someone took a barn owl and just lowered the brightness, threw some speckles in there, made their eyes a direct portal to the infinite nightmarish abyss, called it a day
the YOUNG SOOTY OWLS on the other hand dont even look like real animals. they look like someone made a dodo out of felt and accidentally left it in a dryer. owls are great
Tell me this isn’t a psychopomp and I’ll call you a damned liar.
so many of my friends are queer that i genuinely forget that the majority of the population isn’t on a regular basis
yeah i find it pretty funny when people call others out like “don’t just assume” because for real, it’s at least 85 percent.
please get off my post with your heteronormative bullshit and realise that a) you have no way of knowing how many people are cishet based on limited data and laws and social stigma preventing people from being open about their identity, b) you have no reason whatsoever to make presumptions about other people’s identities and c) that ‘straight until proven otherwise’ is an attitude which pressures people into going through the stressful process of ‘coming out’ on a regular basis, thanks
I know at least 85% of people do not have deadly allergies to peanuts, too. That doesn’t mean I shove a sandwich in their face on the assumption that the individual in front of me is in the lucky majority.
Assumptions about sexual orientation may be less immediately life-threatening, but you’re still talking to individuals, not a statistic. It’s a matter of courtesy and decency.
