This is horrifying hahaha. (Via @amberbenson)

A stuff of nightmares to be sure.

… Aaand friendly remember that we’ve never had as many periods as we do now, since most of us don’t actually spend our time being pregnant or lactating, with resulting amenorrhoea.

Truth. A hunter-gatherer diet for the mother, and unrestricted nursing around the clock for the child, leads to years of lactational amenorrhoea.

There are a few other reasons why pregnancy and birth are so dicey for humans, iirc.  (I’m not looking up sources, so I may not be explaining this quite right.)   We’ve got such big damn brains, and we insist on walking upright, so nature had to make some compromises between fetal size and maturity on the one hand, and the size and mechanics of the mother’s pelvis on the other.  Humans are born half-baked, compared to other mammals, but if we gestated longer, there’s no way we’d fit through the birth canal.  As it is, it’s a pretty tight fit, and that’s why late pregnancy and labor can be so fucking uncomfortable.

Such hard work, but worth it, the vast majority of the time.

deathsock asked:
Hello! I'm developing a graphic novel and I would very much like some resources on the 1980's, specifically fashion, slang, technology, and entertainment :) Thank you!

lazyresources:

With the lack of a specific region or location, my answer will be centered on American culture since it’s easier for me. Please note that I am a ’90s kid, so I have no personal experience of the ’80s.

While it should never be used as your only source of information, wikipedia is a great place to start since it touches on almost everything you’re looking for. From there, look at the eternal links at the very bottom of the page or take what you need and google it. Tumblr is another great place to look through—there are many blogs based on the 1980s. The best source, however, is to talk someone who lived through the 1980s. Even better, talk to people of different ages who lived through the 1980s; that way, you get a sample of the different views depending on the age group. For links (tumblr blogs are in italics):

Sorry for the wait, but I hope that helps!
