These two excessively handsome acting men in peak physical fitness are are at their oldest in their early 30s. Their higschool and early college years were the height of Dragonball Z’s popularity.
tangled is the worst one if you think about it
You really think Mother Gothel is worst than Frollo? All she told Rapunzel was that the world outside her tower was dangerous and it would hurt her physically. Frollo told Quasimodo everyday that he was a monster. I think someone has to listen to the song “Out There” again. Also when Frollo is reviewing the alphabet with Quasimodo the words used are Abomination, Blasphemy, Contrition, Damnation, Eternal Damnation. So don’t you dare say that Mother Gothel has anything on Frollo. Quasimodo was truly restricted in a negative environment.
Amen to the Frollo vs Gothel comment.
At this late date, fanfiction has become wildly more biodiverse that the canonical works that it springs from. It encompasses male pregnancy, centaurification, body swapping, apocalypses, reincarnation, and every sexual fetish, kink, combination, position, and inversion you can imagine and probably a lot more that you could but would probably prefer not to. It breaks down walls between genders and genres and races and canons and bodies and species and past and future and conscious and unconscious and fiction and reality. Culturally speaking, this work used to be the job of the avant garde, but in many ways fanfiction has stepped in to take that role. If the mainstream has been slow to honor it, well, that’s usually the fate of aesthetic revolutions. Fanfiction is the madwoman in mainstream culture’s attic, but the attic won’t contain it forever.

I’m only reblogging for the guy in red
Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014
Both by Dan Bagan
Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.
Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”
Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.
These are women are who I always wanted to be.
Let’s not forget that these ladies are STILL out there grinding on the front lines for feminism.
I once picked up Gloria Steinem from the airport, before I even knew who she was!
(Rosie the Riveter pose!)
I was working for a professor and we were hosting the Veteran Feminists of America conference that year, and Steinem was one of our VIP guests. I had only recently declared my Gender Studies minor and had been largely focused on queer/lgbt/trans stuff, somehow nuts and bolts feminism was barely on my radar. (NEVER FORGET YOUR ROOTS Y’ALL!) So I got sent to DFW to pick up all sorts of important people I would soon be reading about. Can you imagine my shock!
Let me tell you, she is still hella fierce, even when she’s just chilling. (Also, she prefers red wine to white. Boom!)
(Thessaloniki) Museum of the Roman Forum:
Photographs* printed on banners and signs depicting the frescoes from the tomb of Agios Athanasios. They depict two Macedonian guards from the entrance of the grave, and a scene from the frieze depicting a symposium. The tomb is not available to the general public yet.
From the exhibition "…young and in excellent health" Aspects of youths’ life in ancient Macedonia.
*The top image is from a study for the construction of facilities around the tomb. Macedonian paintings in tombs and graves are some of the few examples of ancient greek painting that have survived relatively intact. You can see some of the paintings from this tomb in greater detail on this blog.
I actually asked if there was a publication with photographs from the tomb, but they told me there wasn’t. These pictures though seem to have been photographed from a publication. I also put up a separate post with the scanned pictures at hellenic-art.
Disclaimer: None of these photographs are mine, they are from the archives of the Ephorate.
PSA: because I keep seeing that shitty manipulated photo of Emma Watson on my dash. THAT PHOTO WAS PHOTOSHOPPED. The original photo (with another from the same shoot, is from 2011 with Mariano Vivanco) are pictured above. Please don’t perpetuate this error.
Deliberately spreading an altered image of Emma Watson which purports to show her breasts as a statement against threats of nude photo leaks is the height of hypocrisy and whoever did it should be ashamed. (x)
*hits head on desk*
"he’s doing what most teenagers do" well I did my teen years wrong.
This is the kind of shit that puts me off ever having children and I’ve had kids I was babysitting throw tantrums in toystores or have poo/vomit explosions
Jesus Christ what kind of kids did YOU babysit?!
That’s how most kids are in my experience: they tend find it difficult to control their emotions and their bowels.
These people are ignorant as hell. Also, I never did any of that stuff as a teen either, whoops my bad, my liver and lungs must really hate me right now for never giving them that experience. -_-
Drinking under the influence? Seriously? Do they understand how stupid that sounds? If drinking while already intoxicated were illegal half of North America would be in trouble.
Odin could have gotten a functioning artificial eye if he wanted instead of an eye patch. Thing is, the first and only choice was a creepy solid red eye.
Frigga refused to let him in the bedroom with that monstrosity (she will let a lot of things slide but she’s gotta put her foot down on something!)
So eye patch it is. (He still tries to convert her to the “red side”.)
