so now you're on the front lines of the liberal overreaction to this supposed "war on women"?

I’m on the frontlines of any battle against injustice. I always have been, and I always will be. I’ll fight against injustice and bleed to ensure that every human — female, male, child, Batman…whoever — is treated equally and presented every opportunity that everyone else deserves, whether they are rich or poor or dead center in the middle class. Inequality and injustice are violations of incredibly basic human rights, and last time I checked, our country, despite many decades of pitfalls, is supposedly on the side of equality for all, no matter who they are, where they are born, what gender they do or do not identify as, what religion they believe in or do not choose to accept into their lives, what the color of their skin is, what accent their tongues speak, and who it is that they choose to fall in love with. Any time that anybody denies another human being the equal rights that they deserve on account of being born a human being, there is an injustice that needs to be corrected. I don’t know how to fix our societal failures, but none of us should rest until we do because a restraint on one person’s human rights is an invitation to infringe on all of our human rights.

The last time I checked, this was the United States of America, and we have some major faults, but until we change our country’s name to the Loosely-United-States-of-Intolerant-Americans-Unwilling-to-Accept-That-Personality-Differences-Don’t-Abrogate-the-Fact-That-We’re-Still-All-Created-Equal, it will remain our duty to fight against injustice, inequality, and intolerance. Right now, we do it with words and with #hashtag activism, but someday we’ll need to go beyond social media and become true warriors and engage in direct action on behalf of true equality.

So I dyed my cats pink with leftover beet water. No regrets! <3 :D
I had to wash them because of some oil spill they had gotten into, and chose to use the beet water, which is perfectly safe. I had no idea it would really make them this pink.

SO JEALOUS

“A central premise of US media coverage of the Israeli attack on Gaza - beyond the claim that Israel is justifiably “defending itself” - is that this is some endless conflict between two foreign entitles, and Americans can simply sit by helplessly and lament the tragedy of it all. The reality is precisely the opposite: Israeli aggression is possible only because of direct, affirmative, unstinting US diplomatic, financial and military support for Israel and everything it does. This self-flattering depiction of the US as uninvolved, neutral party is the worst media fiction since TV news personalities covered the Arab Spring by pretending that the US is and long has been on the side of the heroic democratic protesters, rather than the key force that spent decades propping up the tyrannies they were fighting.”

Matthew Simmonds, an art historian and architectural stone carver based in Italy, has created a collection of exceptionally beautiful miniature spaces carved from stone. Having worked on a number of restoration projects in the UK – from Westminster Abbey to Ely Cathedral - his skills have been transferred into work of a much smaller, if not more intricate, scale. Hewn from large stone blocks (some of marble), the level of intricacy Simmonds has achieved in the architectural detailing is almost incredible. Capitals, vaults and surfaces all distort and reflect light in a very beguiling way.

Here are some more pictures of these architectural stone carvings from earlier today, with bigger pics of the whole stone they reside in. I really love these, and I want on SO BAD. I will have to subsist on pictures, though, I guess. lookatthislittlething:

'Sista Girls' by Bindi Cole

The term ‘Sistagirl’ is used to describe a transgender person in Tiwi Island culture. Traditionally, the term was ‘Yimpininni’.  The very existence of the word provides some indication of the inclusive attitudes historically extended towards Aboriginal sexual minorities. Colonisation not only wiped out many indigenous people, it also had an impact on Aboriginal culture and understanding of sexual and gender expression. As Catholicism took hold and many traditions were lost, this term became a thing of the past. Yimpininni were once held in high regard as the nurturers within the family unit and tribe much like the Faafafine from Samoa. As the usage of the term vanished, tribes’ attitudes toward queer indigenous people began to resemble that of the western world and religious right. Even today many Sistergirls are excluded from their own tribes and suffer at the hands of others.
Within a population of around 2500, there are approximately 50 ‘Sistagirls’ living on the Tiwi Islands. This community contains a complex range of dynamics including a hierarchy (a queen Sistergirl), politics, and a significant history of pride and shame. The Sistagirls are isolated yet thriving, unexplored territory with a beauty, strength and diversity to inspire and challenge.
