fashinpirate's tumblr blacklist made me look into the history of LimeCrime and OMG
Doe Deere is like a K-drama villain, I can’t
that was the craziest thing I’ve read in a long time. I would watch a tv series about Lime Crime and Sugarpill
I mean she dressed as Hitler and killed at least one cat!
And lied to the vegans!
I made “fan art” of her once but it was only to get it shared on her IG so I could get traffic on my etsy nah mean lol
stop white boys 2k14
Because obviously we should all be striving to attract these pasty bean-poles.
This is literally the same video dying
Maybe if this was 2006 and they were in emo bands would they be close to attractive but it’s not so they can fuck off
Another day, another kick ass woman from history who is sadly lacking her own movie franchise.
but nah, women never did anything interesting or exciting in the Old Days
She was known as the Lioness of Brittany.
I might have gone as her son, Oliver, last Halloween. And by might, I mean, I did, though everyone just thought I was a random french pirate.
There’s a great footnote in the source article on John de Montfort: “Whose wife, Jeanne de Montfort, also took to the sea to combat the French alongside the English Navy. Nicknamed ‘The Flame’ due to stories about her carrying a flaming sword into battle, she is sometimes confused with the Lioness of Brittany.”
Because one badass pirate lady was just not sufficient, this period of French history produced two. The next time someone disparages the French, I’m going to tell them to take their complaint to Jeanne de Clisson.
And if a historical novel called The Lioness and the Flame happens to fall out of my head later this year, I’m blaming ktempest.
and I will take all the
credit blame, for sure.
Except she is not a Frenchwoman, she is a Breton and the French don’t deserve credit for her! If she was alive in the 1300’s, that’s well before Brittany was made a part of France in 1532 (although Bretons are still Bretons after that date).
if your ~*~heterophobia~*~ includes bi people we can’t be friends
If your heterophobia is exclusively aimed at bi people it ain’t heterophobia
i hate small talk
tell me about how lonely you are or tell me about why you keep waking up in the morning or talk to me about your mum’s eyes and your dad’s laugh. I don’t care about the weather and you don’t care about how my job’s going.
I’m so fucking in love with this.
how can i blacklist all posts like this can people just tag them #pseudo profound john green shit so i never have to see them
He’s just mad because he can’t acquire all the apple juice that I’m acquiring. (x)
I haven’t seen this around tumblr just yet, so I wanted to put my own word out about it.
This is a fashion doll created by an illustrator that has been modeled to the standard proportions of the average 19 year old girl. She’s healthy, sporty, wears natural makeup, and GOSH DARNIT LOOK HOW POSABLE SHE’LL BE.
The project is technically fully funded now, but the more support and preorders it gets, the more influential it will be. My mom just got one for the sole purpose of keeping in the box, because best case scenario, these things become the next barbie and they’re worth big bucks later on; worst case scenario, she helped support an artist with a good cause.
Preorders aren’t outrageous at all. $25 for a first-edition doll that will NOT be sold in retail stores. Please spread the word and help get this doll known!
EVERYONE PLEASE. PAY ATTENTION. Especially if you’re Asian.
On January 30th, 2014, California Senate just passed SCA-5, a legislation that would repeal portions of California Proposition 209.
In condensed words, this bill allows schools to DISCRIMINATE AGAINST ASIANS.
Valerie Thomas: Why she kicks ass
- She is a scientist and inventor, who invented the illusion transmitter for which she received a patent in 1980. (This is an invention that NASA continues to use to this day.)
- She went to an all-girls school where she did not receive any training in the sciences. Implicit stereotypes contributed to this, as the girls school did not teach the students about math or science, so she had to educate herself about those subjects. She later attended Morgan State University, and was one of two women in majoring in physics.
- She worked at NASA, first as a data analyst and then moving on to oversee the creation of the Landsat program, then as project manager for the Space Physics Analysis Network and was associate chief for NASA’s Space Science Data Operations Office. She also participated in projects related to Halley’s Comet, ozone research, and the Voyager spacecraft.
- She retired in August 1995 as Space Science Data Operations Officer, serving as manager of the NASA Automated Systems Incident Response Capability and serving as chair of the SSDOO Education Committee.
- She is currently an associate at the UMBC Center for Multicore Hybrid Productivity Research, and also serves as a mentor for youth through the Science Mathematics Aerospace Research and Technology and National Technical Association.
Ughhh I’ve been robbed and I just feel kinda shitty in general. Your kind messages are appreciated
Someone FaceTime with me or something please
Tagging bare boobs as nsfw is the opposite of progress and further sexualizes them and supports the ‘no breastfeeding in public/men can be shirtless but women can’t’ crap. You wouldn’t tag a picture of David Beckham advertising his underwear shirtless as nsfw. Don’t tag boobs as nsfw.
I feel this but it will probably get people fired?
Yeah and like I have safe browsing for a reason, not because I’m trying to avoid looking at breasts out of some moral belief but because scrolling past boobs in a public space is highly precarious
And like, yeah, that should be changed, but proudly looking at bare boobs in a public library isn’t the best praxis towards that
To avoid unnecessary sexism, I tag partial or complete nudity, no matter the gender of the person, as #nsfw and make sure everyone is comfortable.
Last month, Loretta Saunders, a 26 year old Aboriginal woman who was working on a thesis about missing and murdered Aboriginal women in Canada, was murdered. Now, the Canadian federal Special Committee on Violence Against Indigenous Women has tabled a report claiming that there is no problem and there should be no inquiry- despite the fact that Aboriginal women are five to seven times more likely to die as a result of violence than non-Aboriginal women in Canada.
Loretta is one of over 800 missing and murdered Aboriginal women in Canada. We need a public inquiry into this violence.
Please take a moment today to sign this Change.org petition started by Loretta’s cousin calling for a public inquiry into the violence against Aboriginal women.
Happy International Women’s Day.
