A fact about me and bugs: Once, when I was in high school, I saw a humongous wasp (at the time I thought it was a hornet, but now I know there’s another kind of large wasp called the cicada killer, which is probably what it was, given what it did LOL) intercept a cicada as they were both flying through the air in opposite directions, and carry it off.
I had never seen a wasp so big, and for it to have completely absorbed the cicada’s momentum, to the extent that its own flight path never slowed or wobbled? I was in awe.
heterosexism is a double-edged sword: yes, other people might assume I’m straight but I’m going to assume other people are straight too because if I don’t - well, I might get hurt if I’m wrong. and then I think well, what if someone who thought I was straight wasn’t and they were afraid of the same exact thing I’m afraid of?
There are two Baron Cohens. One makes his living exploiting offensive stereotypes; the other one has a TV show.
