Someone should tell me what the fuck Game of Thrones is because I honestly don’t know a damn thing about it.
its like musical chairs, but instead everyone gets their throat slit if they are left standing
“We went to Kineshma, that’s in Ivanovo region, to visit his parents. I went as a heroine and I never expected someone to welcome me, a front-line girl, like that. We’ve gone through so much, we’ve saved lives, lifes of mothers, wives. And then… I heard accusations, I was bad-mouthed. Before that I’ve only ever been “dear sister”… We had tea and my husband’s mother took him aside and started crying: “Who did you marry? A front-line girl… You have two younger sisters. Who’s going to marry them now?” When I think back to that moment I feel tears welling up. Imagine: I had a record, I loved it a lot. There was a song, it said: you have the right to wear the best shoes. That was about a front-line girl. I had it playing, and [his?] elder sister came up and broke it apart, saying: you have no rights. They destroyed all my photos from the war… We, front-line girls, went through so much during hte war… and then we had another war. Another terrible war. The men left us, they didn’t cover our backs. Not like at the front.” from С.Алексеевич “У войны не женское лицо”
In Soviet Union women participating in WWII were erased from history, remaining as the occasional anecdote of a female sniper or simply as medical staff or, at best, radio specialists. The word “front-line girl” (frontovichka) became a terrible insult, synonimous to “whore”. Hundreds thousand of girls who went to war to protect their homeland with their very lives, who came back injured or disabled, with medals for valor, had to hide it to protect themselves from public scorn.
This has always happened in history: Women do something important. Then they get shamed for it (so nobody will talk about it) and it gets erased from history.
And then certain men will say: “Women suck, they’ve never done anything important.”
Look into history and learn that women have played a far greater role then douches (present and past) wanted you to know.
This reminds me of how Egyptian women, who participated in Arab Spring protests in great numbers and were critical to the revolution that ousted Mubarak’s regime, have only been treated with great disdain and violence for their passion and work.
Remember that time I made a post reminding people that okaying women for front-line combat is not the beginning of women fighting in wars, but only the beginning of men finally realizing we weren’t going to shut up about it? Remember after I posted that some dudebro came into my inbox and tried to claim I was wrong and that only a few “rogue women” were fighters?
Again, we have fought in every conflict and every war since the beginning of time. We’re the ones most likely to be victims of war crimes so you better fucking believe we fight for our homes, our people, our lives.
We fight alongside men and help them, save them, die for them as battle buddies and they turn around and write us out of their histories. They erase our efforts, our sacrifices, our deaths.
And then there’s Sansa. Sansa Stark who named her deadly, killer direwolf Lady. And she trained her to be gentle, and quiet, and sweet and loving. And then what happens? The Baratheons have her killed. So now Sansa is so alone, having lost her family, her home and her Lady. But she is the exact opposite of what her father said would happen to wolves who end up alone. Ned Stark said that the only way they could survive was to stick together, and that was never an option. Robb had their mother. Rickon and Bran had Winterfell and then each other. Jon is on the wall, with his brothers, and then across it with Ygritte, then back to the wall. Arya had Gendry, and is still linked to Nymeria. But Sansa has absolutely no one who is her family. So she takes the strength and poise of a lady, and turns it into something as deadly and defensive as a direwolf’s fangs and claws. She knows that she is alone, and that no one is coming for her, so she adapts. She plays the game, she keeps her mouth shut, she stays alive.
Because the best way to hide a wolf, to keep people feeling safe, is to make them think it’s just a well trained dog.
i wont lie i am in love with this boy

FUUUCK WHY DID I EVER LEAVE TUMBLR
Hello there :D
Historical photographs held in their modern location. Wow, tragically beautiful.
To give you a couple updates, in snippets:
I don’t miss tumblr at all
I do miss some of you as people…
I’ve seen star trek 2009 and the new one and I loved both, but especially the first one! even though benedict is in the second one. He makes a good villain though. perfect fighting choreography.
so I guess 100+ nerd points for me
Ok actually that’s it cause there’s nothign else I want to add that wouldn’t be oversharing too many personal things…
someone with my brothers old band name started following me (I got an email) so I panicked, went to tumblr, requested new password and here I am logged in.
turns out that person isn’t my brother or anyone from his band. it’s just coincedence.
anyhow. I see the reblog thing changed places from top of post to bottom. I guess it makes sense.
might I just add that I am in the middle of finals and so this is the worst possible time to be back on tumblr XD?
I’ll probably leave soon.
This is a video about a doctor who shows how a plant-based diet can prevent 15 of the 16 top killers in the USA and in some cases cure them.
Yep…..you read that right only 15 of the 16. Couldn’t cure them all…..Nice try vegans….nice try.
But no because tasty meat
Not until veganism can find a cure for car accident disease (medical term: volvoses killoses), will I be a part of this death machine. While they are at it, vegan food needs to be able to cure falling down 20 flights of stairs otherwise it’s nothing but pseudoscience. Get to work!!!!
