rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying

Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.

My AP Biology teacher talked about Rosalind Franklin so much. She should be addressed that heavily in every Bio class, seriously. She’s amazing.


literally fucking unfollow me if you hate harvey milk and consider him an assimilationist actually fuck off and unfollow me if you feel like such an authority on queerness that you can decide when people are “assimilating” and when theyre radical enough like. youre an asshole. 


NYC in the 1980s.



After picking up a camera at the age of 15, Jamel Shabazz has been unknowingly become the first “visual documentarian” of hip hop. For over 30 years he’s captured the world around him. Every frame  of that world is a time portal that sparks emotion stemming from the scenes they represent. And if there is ever a glimpse into the foundations of street wear and its surrounding culture, it can be found in the pages of his first book.

“Back In The Days” is real deal documentation as it pertains to the origins of hip hop, not to mention hip hop fashion. No 2oK a day models. No makeup artists. No food trucks. The models in the book don’t need runways because they lived the life of style. Jamel Shabazz was there to capture it all.”

it honestly makes me so sad and ashamed that lgbtq people of my generation are so ahistorical and arrogant as to completely dismiss the work done by those who lived and fought before us. it is fucking heartbreaking that it is even necessary to defend the name of a man who was literally shot in the head for being an openly gay politician. have some fucking respect.
