"Love In the Time of Tear Gas." Picture from Ferguson
Why aren’t we seeing this everywhere? Soooo much more meaningful than this, which was everywhere:
Right???? It’s so personal, which is so important!!!!!
"Anne Bonny and Mary Read were pirates, as renowned for their ruthlessness as for their gender, and during their short careers challenged the sailors’ adage that a woman’s presence on shipboard invites bad luck."
Sculpture by Erik Christianson.
I’m not entirely sure that the statue really needed to have a tit out.
How dare women try to have nipples.
Actually I’ve seen this before and I can tell you— it’s because these women were bad ass pirates and when they killed someone they’d expose one or both breasts so that when their victim died, (s)he knew that they were killed by a woman.
ACTUALLY Anne Bonny purposely wore loose fitting clothes and displayed her breasts openly at all times during battle - mainly because men were distracted by them, and she took pleasure in killing said men while they were too busy staring at her breasts. Mary Read dressed mainly as a man (after posing as her deceased brother, Mark, for the entirety of her childhood) and both ladies cross-dressed from time to time, hopping between ships. They were known as the ‘fierce hell cats’ due to their ferocious tempers, and were key elements to Captain ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham’s crew - they were the only two known female pirates in the Golden Age of Caribbean piracy. IN FACT, when the ship was captured by the British Navy, Anne and Mary were the ONLY TWO pirates who fought while the males of the crew hid - they were all tried to be hung as pirates but Bonny and Read were both pregnant and were pardoned.
Calico Jack was a lover to Bonny, and as he was to be hung, Bonny’s final words to him were, “Had you fought like a man, you need not be hung like a dog.” Bonny and Read were possibly two of the most badass fucking pirates and they were FEMALE. The more you know.
I’m trying to figure out how to make another tumblr but I don’t really understand how to do things on mobile :c
We’re only halfway through 2014, and state legislators have already introduced a whopping 468 restrictions intended to limit, control or otherwise regulate women’s reproductive rights.
How many comparable bills have been introduced to regulate men’s reproductive health care during this period? Zero.
Something’s very wrong with this picture.
(NASA) The specter of Veszprem
The city of Veszprem, Hungary was only briefly haunted by this mysterious spectre. On the morning of August 11, its monstrous form hovered in the mist above municipal buildings near the town center. A clue to its true identity is offered by the photographer, though, who reports he took the picture from the top of a twenty story building with the rising Sun directly at his back. That special geometry suggests this is an example of an atmospheric phenomenon called the Glory or sometimes “the Spectre of the Brocken”. Also seen from mountain tops and airplanes when looking opposite the Sun, the dramatic apparition is the observer’s shadow on clouds or fog, the small droplets of water scattering light back towards the Sun through complex internal reflections. Careful night sky watchers can also encounter this spectre’s analog in astronomy, a brightening of zodiacal light opposite the Sun known as the gegenschein.
geminis are very social people but extremely reticent about who they let into their lives. they are possibly one of the most intimately reserved signs of the zodiac. when they get talking about a topic of fascination, and the light bulb illuminates their mercury eyes, then this is gemini love, and if you are the topic of that conversation, then it’s you they love
“Oh, the cleverness of me!” Gemini & Peter Pan
Peter Pan is the mischievous captivate, the eternal child and the double figure shadow, and through his character we are given a close insight into the mysterious Gemini archetype. Gemini is ruled by the cosmic trickster Mercury, and like Peter Pan, Mercury was the winged messenger who could fly. Geminis are known for their charismatic, though deceptive charm which seduces with intellectual neverlands and an imagination that knows no boundary. Like Peter, Geminis are disinterested in growing up and tend to remain young in mind and spirit late into life. They tend to reject the grown up facets of life and neglect keeping up with their bills and responsibilities. And this can be infuriating to the more conservative types. Geminis frequently dismiss the consequences of their actions, and like Peter Pan remain playful and seemingly detached in the midst of danger and threat, “to die would be an awfully big adventure”. "What’s a kiss", is Gemini, while Leo communes with affection, Gemini bonds with shared laughter, conversation and sparkling wit. Peter Pan’s shadow relates closely to the double theme in Gemini’s nature. In mythology, Gemini encompasses the archetypal motif of the twins, one of which is an embodiment of everything that is deemed good, worthy, and noble, and the other, an embodiment of all that is evil, reprehensible, and undesirable. He cut off Hook’s hand, and Gemini/Mercury rules the hands. Geminis typically talk with their hands and possess great hand eye co-ordination and dexterity. And they need their hands for writing! Peter Pan is loving, and Gemini is loving, in the childlike way, the way that twists words with fairytale and allures with naive charisma, “
“Wendy,” Peter Pan continued in a voice that no woman has ever yet been able to resist, “Wendy, one girl is more use than twenty boys.” And this is the Gemini. Adored in the eyes of his company who he bewitches with his inner light, vivid imagination, clever quips and wispy charm. Through the second star on the right, first thing in the morning, Peter Pan flies us right into the exquisite Gemini mind.
"Time is money" = two fundamentally illusionary concepts that make one false statement
Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.
this breaks my heart.
Real life “Rosie the Riveter” - Tennessee, 1943.
GLORIFY THE SHIT OUT OF THIS IMAGE
Painting a more accurate version of history, one reblog at a time.
When I posted this archival image of a “real life Rosie the Riveter” one year ago, I had no idea it would resonate with so many people. 19K and counting.
BOOST THIS IMAGE FUCK
I’m glad there’s finally a term for this type of asshole.
