intersex people are as common as redheads so really the gender binary makes about as much sense as a hair color binary or even a spectrum that goes from black to white. where’s red?
WHY WASNT THIS NATIONAL NEWS?!
I think we know why.

I should cosplay as Margaery Tyrell
now taking volunteers for making my dress and doing my hair and taking my picture

an important factual presentation by me
All the facts.
the Ptolemy dynasty were not ethnically Egyptian, they were of Greek origin. this is still far from western European, pale skinned Liz Taylor, but also not Tina Turner. To completely glance over that fact like it doesn’t exist (or more likely because you don’t know that) does not help shit it just discredits the thing you’re trying to champion so stop. Ancient Egyptians weren’t “white”, and the Ptolemy dynasty weren’t of the same ethnic origin as the Ancient Egyptians or the people they ruled over. They were Greek. Whether they were white depends on whether you consider Greek to be white which depends on what decade you’re from because what the fuck is race? Cleopatra was not Western European, for sure, also not African, like the Egyptians who built the Pyramids and statues and did all that great shit were.
Russian boy band, huh.
Oh wait, Ukrainian, I guess that makes more sense.
more proof for my thesis that men look excellent in high heeled shoes.
The lyrics and absolutely nonsensical, but yeah.
These are some seriously objectified dudes if you were after that for any reason.
so many fantasies realized
Yesterday I asked a woman if she would like to donate to [insert charity involving hunger here], as I do 100+ times a day, and she said no. Which is fine. I don’t care, I don’t know your life. But then she kept going and said she wasn’t because she already pays taxes for food stamps. And she picks up litter on the beach. So I said, “Good for you!” and for a split second was sure I had fucked up and was going to get in trouble for being rude to a customer, but she just said “Thank you!” completely missing how sarcastic I was.
Tip : When someone is asking for donations for something, don’t give an excuse about why you aren’t donating. Don’t go on about how you already donate to such and such charity or how you don’t trust any charities or some bullshit libertarianism. They do not give a shit. God does not give a shit. Karma does not give a shit. There is not a quota of good deeds and once you’ve reached it you’re good to cut people off in traffic and be rude to service workers because, well, you recycle. There is no fucking scorecard. You recycle because it’s the right thing to do, and then you go out and are polite to everyone because that’s the right thing to do.
If you don’t want to donate just say, no thank you not today. No one will judge you - I won’t at least. Idk what’s going on in your life, I’ve been in a place where I’ve literally had 30 cents in my bank account, many time. Maybe this time you’ll say no and the next three times you’ll say yes. Maybe you’re going to go do some research on the charity and come back with a 50 dollar donation. Maybe you’re just a selfish myopic person. The world is complicated and people have a lot of things going on with them. I’ll forget about you as quickly as you forget about me.
But if you start telling me about why you aren’t donating you can guarantee I am judging the shit out of you because I know then that you care a lot about being perceived as a good person but don’t give a shit about actually being a good person. You think being a good person is about meeting a quota rather than something that you practice at, and that makes you scum. The Catholic church abolished indulgences and it doesn’t matter how much you donated at the gala last month, if you act like a little shit you are a little shit and I will judge you as a little shit and you are just the type of person who cares about what people like me, even if I’m just “the help” in your eyes, think because, remember, you are little shit.
tl;dr no one gives a shit about your excuses but you, keep them to yourself. or better yet, don’t make them at all.
In various stages of progress, there will be 12 in all (because 12 is the best number)
A stag-shaped Parthian drinking horn. 1 of about 4 similar horns currently on view at the Getty, I believe.
Made of silver, gold, glass, and garnet, this stunning drinking vessel dates from 50 BC- AD 50.
The forepart of a stag emerges from the curving body of this gilt silver rhyton. The stag is very naturalistic and highly detailed, down to the rendering of veins in the snout. The wide inlaid eyes and the outstretched legs heighten the realism as the stag seemingly bolts in flight. The term rhyton comes from the Greek verb meaning “to run through,” and depictions of rhyta on Greek vases show that they were used to aerate wine. Wine poured into the top of the vessel came out of a spout between the animal’s legs. The spout on this example is now missing, but the hole remains visible.
Stylistic features suggest that this rhyton was made in northwest Iran in the period from 50 B.C. to A.D. 50. This region had been part of the Achaemenid Persian Empire until Alexander the Great’s conquest. After his death in 323 B.C., the Hellenistic Greek Seleucid dynasty, whose kingdom stretched from Turkey to Afghanistan, ruled this area. As Seleucid authority began to weaken In the later 200s B.C., a group of semi-nomadic people called the Parthians, from the steppes of south central Asia, challenged the dynasty and by the mid-100s B.C. had firm control of this area of Iran. This complicated political history left its legacy in the art of the area. Rhyta of this form had a long history in earlier art of Iran, but the floral motifs were drawn from Seleucid art. (getty)
