the waitomo caves of new zealand’s northern island, formed two million years ago from the surrounding limestone bedrock, are home to an endemic species of bioluminescent fungus gnat (arachnocampa luminosa, or glow worm fly) who in their larval stage produce silk threads from which to hang and, using a blue light emitted from a modified excretory organ in their tails, lure in prey who then become ensnared in sticky droplets of mucus.

I love your art, however I also really love Gail Simone. I wish you did have some kind of tagging system so I could block most of the "do not like gail" posts. I don't send you hate about Gail, nor do I try to convince you of her merits. I do believe at times you bring up good points about her... but mostly I don't care for you critiques? I know I'm in the minority here but just my two cents. I think you guys are both awesome but you do snipe at her a lot. She's a person with feelings like you.

You know, I really don’t want to be mean about this, I really don’t.

But this is a personal blog, and if I have to tag my Gail Simone criticism, then I need to start tagging every author criticism I ever post. That includes Lobdell, Noscenti, Didio, etc. Because I’m sure there are fans of each that follow me. I try to be as accommodating as possible when it comes to tagging, but there has to be a limit. 

I have an art blog where I only reblog my art and I don’t post opinions. If you find my posts annoying and are only following for the art, you can check it there. I don’t want people to feel they have to read my shit when it makes them uncomfortable.

Not regarding this particular comment so much as the general brouhaha as a whole: it is kind of distressing that so many of us - the fandom at large - aren’t able to look at criticism without reading it as a personal attack.

Math, meet nature. Nature, meet math. You guys should hang out more.

I will forever be imaging DNA as a helix of butterflies now.
