Pretty much, yeah.

❝Wil, people aren’t angry at you because you want to be healthier. They’re angry because your wording others fatness and fat people. We’re already considered less-than in society. We’re already told that we’re immoral, that anything wrong with us is all our fault, and that we deserve diseases like diabetes and heart problems because of our fatness. We’re told that anyone who looks like us in the media is simply “encouraging obesity” and is wrong. We’re scrutinized, and every bite of food that is put into our mouths is scrutinized. We’re told jeeringly not to try to exercise, that standing up for ourselves means we’re stupid and blind, and some of us have even been told to “eat ourselves to death” or to “kill ourselves”.❞

High School Fads, 1944

Ok so now I’m on the look out for lesbians with hair bows in the back

This ^^^

I just like how the bow on the left is a ‘signal and a chllange’ it’s like yeah, Betty’s been going steady with Tommy for a few weeks now, but let’s see if Ronny can step up his game before Betty becomes a right bow kind of girl

can i use ‘she wears her bow in the back’ as a euphemism now?

Yes, I think we all can now.

The New Jim Crow

1. Ferguson, Missouri has a population of approximately 21,000 people — roughly 75% of those residents are Black

2. The Ferguson police department has around 530 cops —less than 5 of them are Black

3. Ferguson had *zero* homicides for all of 2014 —until Michael Brown was murdered by Darrin Wilson

4. Things you should know: Five Myths About Black-on-Black Crime

5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color

6. Five examples: The Militarization of the police

7. It’s deeply Institutional: Police view Black Children As Less Innocent

12 Terrifying Japanese Urban Legends >

And I click the link and read, “This account has been terminated due to abuse complaints.” NUUUUU!

So, I tracked down a Cracked article of eight scary Japanese urban legends, Listverse’s gathering of ten Japanese urban legends, a general gathering of media portrayals of urban legends from Japan, from Imgur, the Reddit thread with the comments for that Imgur posting, a list from 2009 from the Spookieststuff blog, and Tofugu’s analysis of the Red Room legend.

None of which specifically seems to address the geisha pictured here, but hey, trying to help.

I neeeeed to track these tights down.

Queen Hatshepsut of Ancient Egypt. She has a lovely smile for someone who’s been dead for thousands of years.

she wasn’t a queen. she was a pharaoh and wanted to be referred to as such. she even had her statues modeled after the male pharaoh’s statues to state her dominance and authority. she was actually one of the most successful pharaohs in all of ancient egyptian history and she reigned longer than any other woman in power in egypt.

damn no wonder she died and smiled for a trillion years afterwards

The fact that we know about her is marvelous.

the next Pharaoh after her Tuthmosis III  tried to erase Hatshepsut out of history ,chiseled her name off her monuments ,covered the text on her obelisks with stone,knocked down and defaced her statues .

she was even left off the list of pharaohs ..talk about some patriarchy bullshit

her name was lost for a couple of millennia, her body was found in a unmarked grave  in early twentieth century

sad part is in Egyptian belief is  if your are forgotten in the living world you don’t exist in the afterlife,so he was trying to kill her even in death 

My best friend throwing down some herstory. A+ commentary

She wore a fake beard, you guys.
She was the fucking boss.

If we remember her now does that save her from an awful afterlife?

I’m just picturing the Kemetic afterlife. All the Pharaohs are hanging out in some kind of swanky club, drinking and congratulating each other on being bros. 

The doors slam open and Hatshepsut strides in, glorious, robes swirling, rocking the fake beard and the insane amounts of wealth and power. “Miss me, bitches?” 

There needs to be art of this moment. Just puttin’ that out there.

daddy loves when i wear tall socks c:

Tall socks are love, after all.

Prior to this picture being taken, one imagines a great deal of squirming and feet-kicking.

So fluffy, so very very fluffy.

How though, Daddy?

Oh, I like this a great deal.
