16... More... Days...

I had to share this one because it equally satisfies the part of me that's excited about 'Deadpool' and the other part of me that appreciates a good 'Star Trek' reference.

Phasers set to LOL.

Why Does My Cat Scratch So Much?
Introduction Your cat has a lot of energy and needs to scratch. But scratching the couch, curtains, or other furniture isn't really an option for her—and it's not something that you want her to do either! So how do you keep your feline friend happy while keeping your home intact? Cats scratch because they instinctively want to sharpen their claws. The reason why cats scratch is because they instinctively want to sharpen their claws. You might have heard it said that cats scratch trees and furniture to sharpen their nails, but the truth is that they don't need sharpened claws in order to hunt. They can do fine with blunt ones. The habit of scratching as a natural behavior comes from an instinctive urge to mark territory and show affection (to other cats). Cats will also use scratching as an outlet for stress or frustration if they feel uncomfortable or frustrated in their environment. Cats scratch so that they can remove the old outer layer of their claws. You may have noticed that your cat has a thick outer layer of his claws. Cats need to remove this old layer in order to allow new layers of keratin to grow underneath it. The old outer layer is replaced by new layers of keratin, but the new inner layers are soft and tender, so they can't protect themselves until they're fully developed. For this reason, cats scratch so that they can remove the old outer layer and allow for healthy growth underneath! Scratching helps release pent-up energy in cats. You've probably noticed that your cat scratches a lot. If you're like me, you might have wondered why your kitty needs to scratch so much — and whether it's hurting them. The answer is more complex than you might think: scratching serves several purposes in cats' lives, from stretching out their bodies and exercising their muscles to marking territory, removing the old outer layer of their claws, or even just calming down after an exciting day. As a cat owner myself who has rescued many cats from shelters over the years and fostered many more (I currently have eight domesticated felines), I know how important it is to provide them with opportunities for this behavior in their daily lives. Scratching provides beneficial exercise; it also helps keep cats' muscles healthy and strong by helping them stretch out when they're feeling stiff or pent-up energy levels are high. If your kitty tends to scratch too much without being able to use up all his energy through playtime outside or exercise indoors (such as running back and forth across the room), then try teaching him some new tricks while he's engaged in another activity such as playing with a wand toy—this will help him release his pent-up energy while also improving his confidence level! Cats scratch to stretch out their bodies and exercise their muscles. Scratching is an instinctive behavior for cats. When they scratch, they stretch their bodies and exercise the muscles in their paws and legs. Cats also use their claws to mark territory; this is called scent-marking. Scratching can relieve stress that cats feel from being confined indoors or from boredom. Scent-marking helps protect your cat from other cats in the neighborhood who might want to take over your house! It's not just about marking—scratching also helps cats sharpen their claws for hunting prey and defends against enemies like dogs or even humans (they're sharp!). The act of scratching also releases pent-up energy; it's a great way for kittens to burn off energy and keep them calm when you're busy trying to finish up work at home or if your kitty has been cooped up inside all day while you're away at work or school. If you think of these reasons as "why" instead of "how", it'll help clear up any confusion about why cats do what they do! Cats scratch when they're bored or have too much energy. Scratching is a normal cat behavior. Cats are very active, and scratch when they have pent up energy. They also scratch when they are bored or in need of some mental stimulation. Scratching allows your cat to release their stress by exercising their muscles and also helps them sharpen their claws, which you’ve probably noticed them cleaning just as much as they clean themselves! In addition, cats love to climb on things like trees and furniture, so scratching can help them do this more effectively. In addition to climbing and scratching, cats sleep almost 20 hours a day! This means that if you provide an adequate amount of sleeping space for your cat (in other words: hideaway spots) then he might be less likely to choose something else—like your furniture—to sleep on instead. You can help your cat satisfy her scratching instincts. If you want your cat to stop scratching, stop scolding her. Cats scratch because they need to, and punishing them for doing what comes naturally only causes resentment on both sides. Instead of disciplining your cat for scratching furniture or other objects in the house, provide her with a variety of appropriate surfaces so she can satisfy her urge for self-grooming in a safe way. You can also invest in commercial scratching posts that are specially designed to be attractive and durable enough for cats to use regularly. You should also try to ensure that your cat has regular playtime with you or another feline companion so she gets plenty of opportunities for physical activity and mental stimulation on a daily basis (if you don't have another feline friend handy). If you'd like to give this method an extra boost, consider adding more toys into the mix—many cats enjoy playing with toys specifically designed for them—and taking time every day to spend some quality bonding time together while playing fetch or engaging in other activities that will keep both of those wonderful paws busy! The best way to keep your cat from destroying your home is to provide her with a variety of scratching surfaces, like a cardboard box or a cat scratching post, and to make sure she is getting regular activity through playtime with you or another feline companion. The best way to keep your cat from destroying your home is to provide her with a variety of scratching surfaces. For example, you can buy a cardboard box or a cat scratching post and make sure that she gets regular activity through playtime with you or another feline companion. Conclusion We hope that this article was helpful in answering your question about why your cat scratches so much. If you’re looking for solutions to the problem, we recommend providing your cat with plenty of safe surfaces to scratch on and giving her regular playtime with you or another feline friend. If that doesn’t work, then consult with a veterinarian who can help determine if there might be additional reasons why she is scratching excessively—like an infection or allergies—and treat those accordingly
Why Do Stereotypes Hurt So Much?
It's not just rude... it's bad for our communities. If you're not familiar with the "fake geek girl" accusation, that's probably a good thing. It doesn't happen all the time, but there are some people in the geek community (an over-generalization of gamers, comic book lovers, and sci-fi readers) that feel the need to act as gatekeepers. And while there's nothing wrong with defending the things you love from people who only wish harm on your community, the practices currently in place end up deterring new fans, which keeps the fandom from growing. Not only that, but it makes it a very hostile place to be, even for those who have been fans for a long time. Instead of coming together to get excited about what we all love, fan events have become gated communities more concerned with outing the 'fakes' than with the media that brought us together in the first place. And the 'fakes' being targeted are predominantly- though not exclusively- women. What gives? The above is, of course, satire. The truth is that geek culture has become extremely accessible in recent years. There are lots of new comics fans thanks to the hugely popular Marvel and DC franchises. Thanks to Cartoon Network's lineup, there are anime fans left and right. Steam is making it easier (and cheaper) for new fans to become dedicated gamers. Geek is no longer an insult, it's an identity that people are proud of. And why should we be ashamed of our passions? They're a big part of our lives. They're how we have fun. They're how we relate to the world. So why is there a culture built around punishing new fans? I've seen lots of reasons tossed around. But I'm not really sure what the answer is. I've been told that 'fake geek girls' are only interested in sex, that they're only calling themselves geeks because it's trendy, that they're invading male-only spaces to cause trouble and not because they actually care about the medium. Via Tara Tiger Brown, Reddit, Joe Peacock. Sure, there are probably lots of 'booth babes' at conventions who care more about doing their job than showing off how much they know about geek culture, if anything. Maybe there have been some trouble-makers at conventions. None that I've ever been to, but I wouldn't say it's not a possibility. But isn't that what convention codes of conduct are for? Protecting fans- all fans- from misbehavior? It seems unreasonable to assume that someone has bad intentions based on their gender presentation or their appearance. When it comes to bullying or toxic behavior, it sounds like being exclusionary based on the way someone looks is generally agreed upon as unfair and cruel. So why is this an accepted practice when a new fan is present? Or when a person is expressing their fannishness in a way that's different? The truth is, we all miss out as a result. We were all new once. I wasn't born with an encyclopedic knowledge of knowledge of Marvel comics or fandom history. That's all stuff that I learned. Because it was interesting, because it was fun, and because I wanted to hang out with the fans who invited me into their spaces and made me feel welcome. What is so threatening about new fans that makes us so possessive? Why wouldn't we take advantage of their new-found excitement, instead of shunning their enthusiasm? @RobertMarsh @CarmenMRey @AimeeH @DanRodriguez @ButterflyBlu @melifluosmelodi @DonovanMoore @InPlainSight @baileykayleen @LizArnone @VinMcCarthy @WayneWinquist @MattK95 @ChosenKnight @RaquelArredondo @BeannachtOraibh @chris98vamg @BryanVincent @BiblioLady @purplem00n23 @dustinparson I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this subject! I know it can be difficult to have these discussions and I'm honestly humbled by the responses I've gotten here.
Surprise! Girls Have Always Been Nerds
In other news, water is also wet. But apparently J.J. Abrams, director of the upcoming Star Wars movie (and the rebooted Star Trek franchise) didn't get the memo. On Good Morning America last week, he gave this well-meaning but kind of oblivious endorsement of the movie: “Star Wars was always about, you know...it was always a boy’s thing, and a movie that dads take their sons to. And though that’s still very much the case, I was really hoping that this could be a movie that mothers can take their daughters to as well. So I’m looking forward to kids seeing this movie and to seeing themselves in it, and seeing that they’re capable of doing what they could never imagine was possible.” *Sigh* Definitely well-meaning. And I'm completely excited about the emphasis on female roles, from what I've seen so far it looks like a definite improvement. But the truth is that despite the somewhat alienating failures of the original trilogy, female fans have been here all along. It's not like we're quit either! Who do you think was discussing the infamous slave Leia bikini scene? A random bunch of women who had never seen the films? Who do you think has been showing up to conventions, reading the books, and watching the movies over and over and over again? I appreciate what he's trying to do. But it feels a little weird that he's talking about appealing to women when he doesn't seem to know anything about the female fans that are already here. Female fans exist! They like nerdy stuff! They always have! This is just... tiring. I don't really have anything against J.J. Abrams for this (though I have a few bones to pick with him over the Star Trek reboot). He's unfortunately just one of many people in the industry that seems convinced women do not and have never cared for anything that has to do with geek culture. They couldn't be more wrong. The science fiction genre was INVENTED by a woman (Mary Shelly's Frankenstein to be precise). In the early days of Marvel and DC, comics were most likely more popular among girls than boys. When Stark Trek was about to be cancelled, female fans were the ones leading the first letter writing campaign of its time to bring the show back for a third season. tl;dr We're here. We have ALWAYS been here. And Hollywood would know that if they'd start listening.
