Fuck special snowflakes who think like this.
Gurl bye
Your ass ain’t fucking special because you don’t wear makeup.
You’re not fucking better than the woman with large breasts who wears tank tops.
You’re a piece of shit because you are putting sexist stereotypes onto other women in some anti-feminine bullshit.

If you don’t like it, why’d you comment on it? I think it’s awesome and you’re probably one of the girls up there that wears makeup and shortshorts and tiny tanktops. And most kids today wear makeup because they think they aren’t pretty and need it. So deal with it. And get over yourself.

girl bye.
lemme tell you something: I wear tons of fucking make up. I wear short dresses. I walk around with a face that looks about as fake as it can get outside of a fucking barbie doll. and I like it that way. and, despite what you seem to think, no, it’s not because i think i’m ugly. i just fucking like makeup (and trust, i’ve spent years examining my own motivations and how they’re tied to internalized self-hated, fatphobia and misogyny so don’t EVEN cause you don’t know what you’re talking about).
I also read ravenously; engage in discourse regarding philosphy, art, economics, politics, race, gender, sexuality; make subversive art; and love comics and film and music. I’M A FUCKING PERSON IS WHAT I’M SAYING. 
like how fucking deep is this goddamn image when the spine of the book JUST SAYS THE WORD ‘BOOK’.
this kind of bullshit narrative, other than furthering a misogynistic dichotomy that pits women against each other, is also a complete fucking fallacy. A huge majority of average women DON’T DO THIS. you aren’t the lone plain jane in an army of cake-faced, bottle blonde barbies—if you look around, you’ll see that most women just throw on jeans and tops and very little makeup. 
I get that this kind of shit is an attempt to fight back against media-made images of what womanhood is supposed to be. I get it. (thought isn’t it interesting that the “weirdo” in the picture is still thin and conventionally attractive??)
but attacking other women who you perceive as being stupid or carbon copies because of their fucking appearance doesn’t fight back against shit. it actually does EXACTLY what the patriarchy wants us to do—engenders more hatred and competition between women. 
but you know, whatever, continue to think you’re so goddamn special. i’ll be over here reading AND wearing hot pink lipstick and having a hell of a time doing it. 

THIS IS THE BEST FUCKING THING I’VE EVER READ IN THE HISTORY OF EVER

And that is how you tear a fake feminist to shreds. Bravo.

A Selk’nam couple with their baby, on a ship en route to be exhibited in Europe as “wildmen”. The Selk’nam people are an indigenous tribe in the Patagonian region of Southern Argentina and Chile. Both appear to have slight damage on their ankles from cruel, probably iron, restraints. 
The fear and confusion on their face is haunting. For people who had lived a simple hunting and gathering lifestyle, with little European interaction, the rest of their lives must’ve seemed like a surreal nightmare. 

I’m reblogging from the source so as not to make this too long, but that’s not all.
The Selk’nam people became victims of a genocide and were wiped out by Europeans, not just in the sense of being taken on ships. The Europeans came and colonized their native land, literally stole it and claimed it as their own, including the animals there—so when the Selk’nam did what they’d always done, which was hunt sheep for food, the Europeans hired armed militias to hunt them down and cut off their ears for bounty.
There are no longer any Selk’nam people alive today.

"When asking the server how the animal being served was prepared, no one seems to wonder whether that server has basic health insurance or whether that server is affected by the fact that the restaurant industry has one of the highest rates of sexual harassment and lowest rates of pay. When waxing poetic about the “salt of the Earth” farmers from which they buy their unpasteurized milk, no one seems to worry that an estimated 10 percent of American farm workers are children."

Science Penguin [x]

i enjoy that every single human’s reaction to penguin is unrestrained delight

And penguins lack large terrestrial predators, so their reaction to humans tends to be, “HELLO STRANGE GIANT PENGUINS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? DO YOU HAVE ANY FISH?”

SO HAPPY TO SEE SCIENCE PENGUIN ON MY DASH.

"Henna was also used to mark happy and celebratory occasions, including holidays.
Jews in the Middle Atlas would henna their hands just before Passover, and the stain would last all through the holiday; Erich Brauer recorded the same of Kurdish Jews.
In Amadiyya, on the night before Purim, women would take all the young girls of the village to the baths, where they would be hennaed as if they were brides; this was known as khiyāpit benātha (Neo-Aram. the bath of the maidens). They were given sweets, and their mothers told them that their henna made them as beautiful as Queen Esther.
Women and girls in Yemen and Aden used henna to beautify themselves for holidays, including Purim and Sukkot; unmarried girls were allowed only to henna their hands, because hennaed feet were seen as the prerogative of married women.
As a symbol of celebration, henna was not used during periods of mourning. Some Persian communities practiced a ceremony called sāl dar overi (to leave the year) at the end of the first year of mourning: mourners would be given new clothing and jewelry and then be taken to the ḥammām and hennaed, symbolizing their return to the normal cycle of life and sociality.
Henna also appeared in other rites of passage. In some parts of Morocco, a newborn child was rubbed with henna; this was common among Muslims as well.
Some Moroccan Jewish communities also held a ceremony on the eighth night after a boy’s birth, the evening before his circumcision. Women would gather in the mother’s house to sing, eat, and apply henna, while the men read selections from the Zohar."

Hey I searched for myself on tumblr and look what I found! From my henna article for the Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic World. More people have probably read it on tumblr than anywhere else, lol!
