Watermelon and Palestinian flag:
"Because it was forbidden to raise the flag, Palestinians used to and still do, take watermelons and cut them in half and just raise them, showing the inside part. The watermelon contains the same colors as the Palestinian flag: red, white, green and black. This way, they have challenged the occupation and its unjust rules. The watermelon, this oval greenish fruit, became a strong symbol in the everyday life of Palestinians. Small and simple gestures can inflict huge outcomes. Small and simple gestures yet creative and smart. The occupier knew the strength of it, so they used to beat up people and merchants who carried or displayed watermelons cut in half."
Text written by Fahd El Hassan:
Yes, Israel did beat and arrest Palestinians for simply holding watermelons cut in half. It’s been known amongst Palestinians, and even documented but whenever I try and tell people they don’t believe me because Israel can’t be that tyrannical. Well it is true, and they are. You couldn’t even be an Artist painting a watermelon without the risk of being imprisoned.
Look and see for your self.
has anyone done a hamlet where hamlet wrests the cup from horatio and finishes off the last of the poisoned drink, and then horatio proceeds to lunge after him and try to kiss the poison from his mouth
I literally have surprise tears in my eyes from reading this short post how could u
michael caine gave me surprise tears at the end of hamlet at elsinore it’s only fair that I pass them on
Can I first direct you to this fanfic and second apologize for directing you to this fanfic?
[whispers] what have you done
this post has ruined me for the night, goodbye friends, i am off to be very sad about danish princes and their scholar boyfriends of ambiguous national origin (personally, my money’s on german or italian)
(oh no now i am even more excited to finish hamlet at elsinore after my finals. excited and scared and preemptively sad)
Once upon a time I was babysitting my 12 year-old cousin and I took her to the mall for food and window shopping. This was around the time Enchanted came out so of course the walls were lined with Giselle. Not that I particularly minded, Enchanted was a good film.
So at any rate, I was casually browsing some of the outfits they had out and pick out this pink sparkly dress meant to be Aurora’s. I said, “Hey, Destiny, why don’t you wear this for Halloween?”
I should note I was just joking because this was the age where she was rebelling against dresses but rather than to comment on that she simply replied with, “That isn’t for me.”
I thought she was talking about the fact that I was holding up a dress so I pressed on, “Aw why not? C’mooon! I’m sure it’ll look great on you! Oh we could get you a nice tiara and sparkly heels-“
But she shook her head and went, “That’s only for white girls.”
Of course it was the initial line that took me by surprise, but even moreso was the sheer matter-of-factness that was in her voice. She wasn’t even fazed by it and talked as if was telling me some fact that I must have missed in a memo.
She went on to look at the TV screen but I kept going through the outfits thinking that maybe Jasmine or Pocahontas or Mulan would work, but that wasn’t the problem.
The problem IS that she is the so-called target audience for a store in which she found nothing for her and she accepted it as a fact.
The problem IS that all of this princess stuff isn’t FOR her.
The problem IS that I went through this revelation when I was her age and I thought that it would have ended a long time ago.
The problem IS that they rejoiced in Tiana only to get three more non-POC princesses.
And the problem is that all of this will CONTINUE to be and I just don’t know if I would be able to stand watching my two year-old niece realize this herself.
Because we’re Mexican, we’re mixed, we’re African-American, but most importantly we’re not white.
So you know what? No. Fuck YOU.
Because I WAS a kid. These princess movies WERE created for me, my cousins, my niece, and damn near every other little girl I have know in my lifetime.
And we were NEVER a part of their formula.
We are NEVER going to be a part of their formula.
I’m sick of this shit. I want to see this shit change and I’m not going to sit around waiting for it to change.
I am going to raise hell and I will bust my ass through school and I will get my degree and I will get into the animation industry and I will fight my absolute hardest to help in the change because if there’s one thing I never want to see again is a kid questioning why movies refuse to acknowledge their existence.
So you sit the fuck down and you shut the fuck up and you go through hearing this shit from four different kids and then you see if you can get off your fucking ass and say that shit to me again.
let me tell you a secret
the reason that women have overwhelming custody of children
is that men overwhelmingly don’t want to raise their fucking kids
And when they do, 70% of the time they get custody. So yeah, this is literally the only reason men don’t get custody of their kids as often as women.
by Dr. Boyce Watkins Lavena Johnson was just 19-years old when she joined the military in 2005. She was trying to raise money for college, and like a lot of young people, she thought that her time in the military would improve her life, not end it. But there is a secret that the military doesn’t share with recruits: A woman has a greater chance of being raped in the military than she has of being killed by enemy fire. I suspect that if Lavena had received this information, she would never have joined. Lavena’s parents, several public officials and tens of thousands of people around the nation believe that Lavena was sexuαlly assaulted and murdered on the day she died. Her autopsy report and photographic evidence revealed that Johnson had a black eye, broken nose, loose teeth and burned genιtals. Also, the gunshot wound she received was inconsistent with the military’s story of how the young woman died. Despite evidence to the contrary, […]

(also check out the behind-the-scenes thing i did!)
sex positivity would be good if it was about destroying the current sexual culture and building up a healthy new one that doesn’t involve the sexualization of children, abuse, rape etc. but as of now it’s just dressing up the same harmful cultural norms as radical and progressive and ignoring the bad parts about it because that would mean people would actually have to analyze their behavior and that makes people uncomfortable
