Offalicious! Brain Bombs. Creamy and crunchy, two of the things our palates love most.
My crisp Panko crumbed bits of lamb brain, seasoned in one of my homemade sweet sour dry rubs and potato starch, crumbed and fried until golden. Dipped in a hot sour sauce to balance the palate.
Celebrate the life given to sustain you by using as much as you can in beautiful ways, wasting nothing.
"Trans rights are human rights." This moving video features 21 transgender people in Asia and across the Pacific sharing their experiences with their families, healthcare providers, government entities and more, and how those experiences were shaped by their trans status.
Together with UNAIDS, the Asia-Pacific Transgender Network released the video for special recognition today, Zero Discrimination Day, which is “a day to celebrate everyone’s right to live a full life with dignity no matter what they look like, where they come from or who they love.” (via Gay Star News)

PS. Guys, if you want to give any message to our grandmas please don’t hesitate to put them in my ask box. We need to show them and let them feel that we are with them in this battle. They really need us, and we can simply help by spreading this message. Thank you very much :D
Neither Courage Wolf nor Calming Manatee were doing much to help my anxiety, but I knew they were both on to something.
So, I created Calmage Wolfatee.
I’m Chinese/white and grew up in the UK. Of course, there I never thought of being mistaken for Latin@ because that’s not considered a racial category in the UK. I have been asked before if I’m Greek, Italian or Spanish, but that never had any negative consequences.
However, I moved to North America (several places) for a while and suddenly, in many stores, people began spying on me and following me around. Every time I looked up, I met the gaze of a shop assistant and every time I turned around, there was another up my arse. I also had people react very negatively and aggressively to me asking for help finding something. I guess that even a British accent can turn into something else when you’re sure someone is `one of those people’. I’ve even had people act like I’m not speaking English and they can’t understand me when my accent is very close to received pronunciation, which is the most widely known and understood British accent outside of the UK. (I know received pronunciation is held up as the ideal to shit on a lot of other people, but I don’t know a less problematic term.) I also had men drive by in cars and randomly scream that I was a whore or a slut several times, but I didn’t think anything of it because that’s a common occurrence in the UK, even when you’re fully clothed and wrapped in a winter coat.
Unfortunately, I never did get to meet any locals who were a similar mix to me, but I have heard it’s common for North Americans like me to get mistaken for Latin@ and get treated like they’re up to no good. I can’t be sure, but I’m guessing that’s what happened with me.
I’m white/Japanese and grew up in America, and I have had similar occurrences. I’m “ambiguously ethnic” and a lot of people back where I’m from assume that anyone of color that isn’t overtly black or Asian is central or south American.
