Purple tongues are cool...

I am me. I cosplay, write, read, hang out with my friends and generally try to live a good life. I hope this will be fun.

    do you want to know something?? I always wondered what the hell kind of hairstyle the Ancient Egyptians were trying to portray with depictions like these

    and this

    until I did my hair this morning and 

    oh

    welp

    you can take the noses off our statues but until you find a way to take Egypt out of Africa we’re still going to find ourselves

    I’m reblogging this post without all the salty, racist commentary because I’m sick of looking at it. please spread this around again in its pure form for posterity.

    What’s funny is that white people thought they were hats/crowns 😂

    ESIUQRAM

    Here’s a really good post about this.

    And here’s some pictures of the Afar people, who still live on the horn of Africa today.

    Cool, huh?

    Beautiful

    People thought it was Hats and Crowns? How could they not see hair?

    The same reason archaeologists, upon finding a woman’s skeleton in the grave of a famous Roman gladiator, immediately wondered where the gladiator’s skeleton was: Old Straight White Man™ brand denial.

    Same way they denied the Really Gay Egyptian Tomb, too. It’s kind of a Thing.

    This post is amazing, I’m so glad it exists. I have learned.

    There is so much greatness in this post and all white people care about is defending why they thought the depictions are hats. White people??? Why are you like this???

    I’m salty as fuck that we were taught they were crowns at SCHOOL. For Christ sake.

    So this official poster has been released for How To Train Your Dragon 3 and it has left me with… opinions. 

    My first initial reaction was excitement! Oh hell yeah HTTYD 3 is coming out! I adored the first two! But then i saw…

    SIIIIIGGGGGGGHHHHHHH I knew immediately that this was most likely a female night fury and fuck yeah shit fuck it is which is so disappointing. I could write a huge essay on how female characters are portrayed in media. I could write a massive blog about smurfette syndrome and how female characters are always just a pink, soft version of their male counterparts, or how female animal or anthro characters still have to fall into society’s beauty standards so we do crazy things like give ducks tits or large eyelashes. 

    I COULD talk about why these things occur, and how this is a worrying reflection of how society views human females, that males are the default and females are the other… but I’m not going to do that TODAY.

    Hi my name is India and not only do I have an animation degree, but I also have a degree in animal and veterinary science.

    This design doesn’t just insult me as an animator. This design insults me as a scientist. 

    Let’s begin.

    Literally nothing will ever be as satisfying as the 4 minute long fight sequence in Kingsman: The Secret Service, in which Colin Firth mercilessly wastes an entire Westboro Basptist Church like congregation as the guitar solo from Lynard Skynard’s 1973 anthem Freebird plays in the background.

    This was the best career move Colin Firth ever made

    Also had the best line/delivery of any movie ever

    wouldn’t it be cool if sylvia rivera or marsha p. johnson were still alive and you could see what kind of activism they were doing now, and support it, and follow them on social media?

    “It sure would!”

    Gosh, imaginary reader, I agree! And you know what?


    MISS MAJOR IS *ALSO* A TRANS WOMAN OF COLOR WHO WAS AT STONEWALL, AND SHE’S STILL ALIVE AND AMAZING AND I ALMOST NEVER SEE ANYBODY MENTION HER

    And yes, that’s her Instagram, @missmajor1. And yes, you can look her up on Facebook under Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, and she even follows back 😮


    Looks like she’s even on Twitter, @immissmajor.

    From missmajor.net:

    Miss Major is a veteran of the Stonewall Rebellion and a survivor of Attica State Prison, a former sex worker, an elder, and a community leader and human rights activist.

    Miss Major’s personal story and activism for transgender civil rights intersects LGBT struggles for justice and equality from the 1960s to today. At the center of her activism is her fierce advocacy for her girls, trans women of color who have survived police brutality and incarceration in men’s jails and prisons.

    Miss Major is formerly the long-time executive director of the San Francisco-based Transgender Gender-Variant Intersex Justice Project (TGIJP), which advocates for trans women of color in and outside of prison. She is also the subject of a new documentary feature film currently showing around the country, MAJOR!

    She even has a GoFundMe, where people make one-time or recurring monthly donations to support this activist legend through her retirement:

    Since June and Pride commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, I thought it’d be a good time to boost her story. Happy Pride! 💖💜💙

    Boost boost.

    “Women are also rejected. Women also spend their teen years pining after dreamy boys who will never love them back. You don’t see us going around murdering people over it. You don’t see us setting up internet communities for the purpose of talking about how evil and shallow men are for not taking us to pound town. Women don’t go around killing men who don’t like them, because if you’re a woman in this society, a boy not liking you is the least of your problems. It is nowhere near the shittiest thing you’re going to be expected to “just deal with” in your life — one of those things being the fact that we are expected to “just deal with” how men are sometimes going to murder a bunch of people because they felt entitled to romantic attention from women. We are expected to “deal with” that, while never bringing up the terms “male privilege” or “male entitlement” or “toxic masculinity” and why those things so often lead to mass murder, on account of how that might really hurt the feelings of the men who have been gracious enough to not go on killing sprees.”
