Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover
Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?
I don’t think I could ever date a good actor like he could tell me he loves me and I’d be like nah you said it much more convincingly to kate winslet try again
"Monosexism and biphobia aren’t real"
just some things i saw on fb tonight followed up by some fact checking.
silly silly little comic
Ladies, gentlemen, and other gentlepeople: my girlfriend’s ‘silly little comic’
Oh my fucking gods this is perfect
This makes me smile
dragon came from water not fire
woman rebelled to save other woman

dragon wasn’t killed
interracial lesbian relationship
there is not one thing about this I don’t like. 10/10 fuck yeah
I just realized that she said she’s studying alternative cures for magical stasis. Magical stasis as in sleeping curses. She is researching how to rescue sleeping princesses without needing a bullshit True Love’s kiss because she knows how shitty it is to sit around waiting for some hero to rescue her.
Perfect comic is perfect
designing and animating a diverse cast of women is hard
translation: we’re afraid to make women look different and “ugly” by giving them emotions that aren’t cutesy and cuddly because that would give people the idea that they’re human and not dolls to sell for Disney profit
this post is back and 10x better
the most unattractive quality to me in other people is constant belittling of what means a lot to others. being contrarian just to be contrarian. people who love to play devil’s advocate. a kind of smugness about everything. an air of being above everyone because you don’t care about anything deeply like the people you mock
Disney’s Big Hero 6:)
I saw a gamergater on twitter today genuinely calling a low review for a game he liked “corruption”. It was… I’m not even sure. I felt a mixture of disbelief and embarrassment for him. And he is the second or third one I have seen calling review scores he didn’t like “corruption” in journalism.
So really, when they say they are against “corruption”, what they really mean is they are against anyone who doesn’t hold their opinions.
Bisexuality: Setting the Records “Straight” [x]

caligula had anime eyes
wait romans painted their marble sculptures
it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot
here’s a statue of Augustus
and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored
i honestly think that what we consider the height of sculpture in all of Western civilization being essentially the leftover templates of gaudy pieces of theme park shit to be evidence of the potential merit of found art
"I tried coloring it and then I ruined it"
And you know what the funniest part is? The paint didn’t just wear off over time. A bunch of asshole British historians back in the Victorian era actually went around scrubbing the remaining paint off of Greek and Roman statues - often destroying the fine details of the carving in the process - because the bright colours didn’t fit the dignified image they wished to present of the the cultures they claimed to be heirs to. This process also removed visible evidence of the fact that at least some of the statues thus stripped of paint had originally depicted non-white individuals.
Whenever you look at a Roman statue with a bare marble face, you’re looking at the face of imperialist historical revisionism.
(The missing noses on a lot of Egyptian statues are a similar deal. It’s not that the ancient Egyptians made statues with strangely fragile noses. Many Victorian archaeologists had a habit of chipping the noses off of the statues they brought back, then claiming that they’d found them that way - because with the noses intact, it was too obvious that the statues were meant to depict individuals of black African descent.)
There’s a lot of good academic discussion about chromophobia in modern Western aesthetics and how it links to colonialism.
This guy shot into a car of black teenagers and killed one for playing their “thug music” too loud at a convenience store and is (rightfully) sentenced to life in prison. And how do they portray him? Crying, “heartbreaking final words”, “learned his punishment”.
