no one ever says that Rome needed help from aliens to build their empire

#l laughed for days when i found out that #ancient egyptians used water to reduce friction and move blocks for distances #and that this was literally DEPICTED ON THEIR HIEROGLYPHICS #but ~western archaeologists~ #thought that the pouring of water depicted ~superstitious rituals~ #jfc

When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

#YESALLWOMEN

wasn’t this the episode where he dressed up as a woman on a bet because he thought women were overreacting?

This show was progressive beyond it’s years

I got half way through the photoset before I remembered this is the one with Shaun in drag

There’s an occasional belief that the SJW problem is a tumblr thing, or somehow a modern corruption. Lemme quote you a thing.

"I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."

The man who wrote that? Booker T. Washington. In 1911.

This is not a new problem.

(Previously mentioned elsewhere, but I figure it’s worth reproducing here.)

I said something earlier today that contradicted this completely, and to y followers: I’m sorry for that. I wasn’t aware that this problem is a long-standing one, and outside of Tumblr as well (the point of the post I said this in still stands, though, I believe).

I am not convinced, because I think that without actively calling out the abusers and pointing out that there is something wrong, we will end up losing significant ground simply because people who are initially uncomfortable with or hostile to social justice are primed to expect those people to be the Real Thing. Without the people who really do care making a point of calling attention to the fact that those people do not represent us, we end up sabotaged by them.

Reblogging for the line I bolded above. I believe this matters.

On the other hand, I can’t help but feel like worrying about whether people are talking about things like racism or sexism for the right reasons, while racism and sexism are still major problems that need to be talked about, may be an instance of focusing on the wrong problem.

JonTron just linked this image as an example of how men are stereotyped and exploited in video games I’m literally laughing out loud holy shit

for anyone who still doesn’t get it notice the background please

Fun fact: topless slave girls are COLLECTIBLES in this game.

See, the problem is that the guys objectification is empowering. You’re empowered because you’re taking advantage of the other objectified people.

Also, can my followers who like guys please comment on whether or not they find this guy sexually attractive?

nah, too much muscle. Muscle is hard… I want something soft to rest my head on! :P the only guy that i’ve ever been attracted to who has looked like this is Jason Momoa. 

I personally like muscles. I adore them. They fascinate me.
But this Conan doesn’t look sexually attractive. He looks like he’s gonna kill me - he’s intimidating and forceful. I’d better stay away from him.
If he looked like this
I’d say “Well, hello sexy.”
Objectification and sexualization don’t really depend on character’s looks, even if they use it to objectificate and sexualize. They depend on character’s purpose and agency.
A girl character can run around with her titties exposed but still could be not sexualized.

Just my 2 cents

Excellent drawings as commentary
