"Curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought it back":
Your curiosity can get you in a lot of trouble, but if you do go looking for an answer or what ever you were looking for,  your satisfaction of knowing was well worth the trouble that you went through to get it.
 “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb”:
Meaning that relationships formed by choice are stronger than those formed by birth.

Alarming Whispers reveal the ridiculous sex ed lessons schools give teens

WHEN WE WERE LITTLE SOME TEACHER TOLD US, THE GIRLS, THAT WE WERE LIKE FLOWERS, AND EVERY MAN WE HAD TOOK A PETAL WITH THEM. IF WE HAD TOO MANY WE WOULD END UP LIKE AN UGLY, WITHERED FLOWER AND NO ONE WOULD WANT US

Oh my God, these people are horrible!

Yeah my school told us making out could cause pregnancy too.

when i was in middle school they gave a girl a giant red paper heart and had three or four guys each come up and rip a piece off - the last chunk left in her hand was supposed to symbolize her worth as a person after being with other people.

Hi, I saw your donation drive on AO3, and I'm wondering what the money is for, exactly? $70,000 seems like a /lot/ of money. Is there somewhere I can see a list of intended purposes? Thank you!

70,000 USD does seem like a lot, which is why many of our users may be surprised to find out that in 2015, the OTW will need 75,000 USD just to replace old servers and expand capacity! The OTW’s annual budget for 2014 is 221,863.44 USD, and 70% of that goes directly to servers, collation, and staff development for AO3. The remaining 30% of our 2014 budget funds Fanlore, Legal Advocacy, Open Doors, and Transformative Works and Cultures; covers administrative costs; allows for outreach and membership development (such as our thank you gifts and shipping); and provides opportunities for professional development and training for personnel. All of these things help the OTW protect and celebrate fans and fan culture.

I find it amazing that people think that’s a lot of money to ask. It’s incredibly expensive to fund such heavily used and non ad supported websites, and that before anyone even gets paid for their work. I am definitely donating what I can to this drive, and I hope if you have a few dollars spare and benefit from Archive of Our Own, or any of their projects you will consider dona ting as well.

We currently have 16365 fandoms, 418361 registered users, and 1330541 works. (x)

And it’s free of advertising, it’s non-commercial, it’s our haven and we can be certain that our fanworks don’t get banned or deleted or censored. AO3 has given a multinational fandom a platform, and, with the OfTW, a voice. So if you can spare a few dollars, do it!
