Just thought I’d share this charming piece of graffiti from near my home.
By the way, this is the ONLY women’s library in the country, it has only women’s work in it and also serves as a sort of feminist museum. They’re affiliated with a university close by and hold regular events such as workshops and talks on subjects like the poetry of immigrant women of colour or the representation of mental health in women’s literature. Its also due to be closed down by the Conservatives.

Can men go in and borrow books written by women?

Yeah, totally, they even do events for men by women on intro to feminism, rape culture stuff sometimes!

god forbid women have a single fucking thing without men getting jealous like fucking children

valkyrjajotnar sent: I read your little post about Brave and "PoC" in Scotland and had to chuckle a little bit at the irony of your blog description. "Because you wouldn't want to be historically inaccurate." Well that's exactly what you were. There we tiny, if no "PoC" in Scotland throughout our history. Some came with the Romans, certainly. But the Romans spent no great deal of time in Scotland. The assertion that Kenneth the 3rd was black is ridiculous. Don't rewrite history for your own gains, shame on you.

The only thing I’m really ashamed of is how lazy 85% of my critics are. “You’re wrong because I said so” takes considerably less effort than scratching a sweaty crotch in snug trousers. I really do appreciate a well-thought out challenge to any assertions I make here, but this has the same amount of nuance as a toddler throwing a toy and screaming “no!”

History is being constantly rewritten, and providing an accessible source for this evolving knowledge on a free blogging platform is hardly “for my own gains”. Unless you count becoming popular online, in which case I absolutely promise you there are about 100 much less tiresome, thankless, and easier ways to do so.

That response is on point. And the question illustrates pretty well what it’s like to have the privilege of “History” (capital letter, scare quotes necessary) on your side. Who needs to source anything when EVERYONE KNOWS you’re right. Except you’re not—as all the sources gathered by @medievalpoc demonstrate. Except the whole discipline of history is based on a constant revaluation of sources and narratives constructed by people who have their own agendas, prejudices, and biases. (People that until very recently were almost exclusively (and are still mostly) straight white men.)

Speaking as a historian well acquainted with the ivory tower, our knowledge of the past is never objective. It’s more about us than it is about anyone who came before. And it always has been.

Bolded because that’s something I’m trying to point out more or less constantly-I’m expected to actually construct a perfectly cited/sourced argument against….literally nothing.

I’m supposed to “prove” a cultural bias wrong. Demonstrating that that is impossible as well as the reasons for that expectation is part of my purpose here, too.

 ”What the fuck?” 

She’s not even scared, she’s just mad and confused.

baby gators are basically confused sharp bunnies who wander into other people’s pools for a dip and some sunbathing and might gnaw on u. mommas are the scary ones.

confused sharp bunnies

i’d argue that you don’t even have to worry about mommas.  alligators are literally stoners.  like don’t fuck with their stuff and they’ll just chill and leave you alone.

i grew up in florida. i was riding my bike once and managed to fall over and into a swamp full of gators and they just stared at me like ‘what the fuck did you do that for?’ they are some of the calmest creatures ever.

Alligators have not evolved in two hundred million years.  They’re too lazy.

there are certain characters/families in the Harry Potter canon that are described as having fair or pale skin, the Potter line isn’t one of them. Harry and James both have canonically jet-black untidy hair but no canon ethnicity. Harry has “great skin”.

feministdisney:

holy cat people on Tumblr etc. will devote hours of time to chasing down and discussing imaginary Easter eggs in Disney movies that may or may not show that the movies are “linked” to each other — will spend days and book-length posts analyzing the three minutes a character spends singing in a movie

but talk about race or non-christian religions and their potential place in Disney for a single post, and suddenly everyone needs to cool down on discussion because they’re just fun simple movies for kids meant to make them laugh and you’re thinking about it too much??

right…

[to be clear I’m fine with the first. Have issues with the first always being categorized as “good fun on tumblr reading super far into films” while the second gets categorized as “feminists etc. who are never happy and pick everything apart”]

Jason grabbed Nico, huh. And then flew with him.

Book. *pulls ups chair* Tell me something. *leans forward in a very serious manner* When you say “grabbed”, what exactly do you mean? Bridal style? Passing an arm around is waist? Full-on hug? What, book? What do you mean?.
