Hey, PSA that these kind of cool and creepy looking ceramic models of human heads with areas marked off with different labels/functions are an artifact of #phrenology - a long-debunked 18th Century #pseudoscience that attempted to rationalize systemic racism, sexism, ableism, and classism.

Personally I am sad for the day I'll have to stop wearing one. For now, men can't even tell me to smile.
@theMannyWillNotBeTelevised You should post some stuff so people know what you're like, and whether or not you're a bot, before just trying to follow a bunch of people.
I printed a #slingshot. Waiting on bands to come in.
"Let us think the unthinkable, let us do the undoable, let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all."
