Dear activists - stop trying to win transgender people the “privilege” of serving in the military and fucking instead direct your efforts towards helping our youth secure safe housing, education and jobs.
That’s where we actually need your help.
isn’t it weird that we pay money to see other human beings?
Are you talking about prostitution, the movies, or airplane tickets?
LOL man.never forget white people did nothing first neither the best, they sleep and eat false propaganda,
Ugh, why the shit does that have to turn into a race thing? Why does EVERYTHING have to turn into a race thing?
because white people have made sure that everything is about race
as proved by the fact that when you say explorer, you think of a bunch of white guys walking the world and discovering it ~exotic wonders~ even though Zheng He travelled through Asia, to the Middle East, and even East Africa. But you’d likely never heard of him before.
Same reason you never heard of Ahmad Ibn Fadlan, an Arab traveller who, as early as the 10th century, went to the Volga area for diplomatic reasons. He wrote about it, much as Marco Polo would do later for his own travels, and is one of our sources on what viking were like (and by all accounts, he wrote about them more accurately than western scholars of the same period did)
Oh, or Ibn Battuta who travelled throughout Africa long before europeans did, and even went to Europe himself.
And that’s just some example of Muslim medieval travel writers
Everything is about race because white people keep telling everyone that their race is the only one who every got anything done.
i have heard of precisely zero non-european explorers ever in my life, and that fucking sucks. this exhibit is amazing and i need to learn more.
That boat is a frickin aircraft carrier comparatively. Holy crap. And no. Never heard a peep.
Zhenghe went to over 40 countries in Asia and Africa and probably went even further, but I didn’t encounter that in history books before. He brought gifts from China to every country he went to and everyone loved him. It was just like “Hey, I’m here with a water-helicarrier and a gift,” and the kings of every country were lilke “holy shit son well here have a giraffe.” There are paintings depicting him leading a giraffe as well. Check him out guys, he’s really cool
That is so awesome. Fuck western history. This is the real shit.
Dysphoria for days.
I recently got a haircut. Big deal, right? Well, to me it was/is whatever. I had this really awesome (dirrrrty/amazing) mullet thing going on, and I loved it, I really did. The only problem I had, was that people constantly read me as a “dyke,” and feminized me because of the length of my hair. And while I fucking love femininity, and I love being femme, and playing around with my own gender fluidity…I’m at a space where I’m internalizing a lot of what is happening around me. i.e- a professor asking me about my birth name on the first day of my m.a, and then her following to gender me as “she” the next week, and people mis-gendering me constantly. it’s a shitty shitty situation/fucked up construction of reading gender when people are making assumptions, people who don’t know me/have never met me, and i’ve been made to feel invalid in my presentation, or in who i am. the fucked up part is that i know that it DOESN’T matter…femininity doesn’t make me “she” and masculinity doesn’t make me “he,” and i don’t adhere to either, but play around with both when I feel it. it’s fucking so hard to be read as a person, a human being… it sucks that i needed to change an aspect of myself that i loved, just to feel safe.
i want non binary people to be taken seriously for real
A Brazilian man recently submitted a birth certificate that if verified would mean he is 126-years-old.
According to the document, Jose Aguinelo dos Santos, was born on July 7, 1888 to African slave parents.
Once verified he will be the oldest man on the planet.
This is amazing also this is for white people who like to say slavery was “so long ago”
Score one for the good guys!
