i stepped on the scale today and it said “bat”
it took me a few seconds to realize it meant the battery was out, but before i realized that i just said “i am not a bat” out loud
Or, y’know, that thing called “Passover.”
Or the whole thing with Noah’s Ark where he killed off everything in the world except Noah and his family, and two of every animal. Y’know, no big deal. Just millions of people.
90% of the Old Testament is about God killing people in temper tantrums
Are we not going to mention Jesus?
Oh my god.
i really hate reading things that talk about how women stayed at home, were housewives, etc. when that was literally never true of most black women in the US
i mean by all means, talk about it, but be specific about which women you’re talking about
I like it when people talk about how women weren’t allowed to have jobs — right, because maids didn’t exist. I mean, women had all kinds of other jobs too, but maids are a really really obvious example of working women that people somehow forget all the time.
(Of course if you dig down you come to find out they were talking about Real Jobs like classy white men do, not gross manual labor which is for poor people and does not count.)
Sometimes I hate Wonder Woman, thanks to this stupid website
I only ever had a passing love for Wonder Woman never was a huge fan. I hate how the feminists have appropriated her as some sort of icon when Wonder Woman was originally created because the guy was writing about a woman who was a SUBMISSIVE to him. Her creation is heavily tied into a Dom/Sub relationship and what do feminists hate? EXACTLY! So the fact that she’s a feminist icon NOW fucking pisses me off because SHE WAS LITERALLY NEVER EVER MEANT TO BE THAT! But of course feminists ruin the fuck out of everything. Not surprised.
You know literally nothing about Wonder Woman. -laughs-
William Marston, Wonder Woman’s creator, WAS a feminist. In a 1943 issue of “The American Scholar”, Marston wrote: “Not even girls want to be girls so long as our feminine archetype lacks force, strength, and power… Women’s strong qualities have become despised because of their weakness. The obvious remedy is to create a feminine character with all the strength of Superman plus all the allure of a good and beautiful woman.” (Sounds like feminism to me.)
And yes, he was into Sub/Dom stuff, but not the way you’d think. He one said "Give them an alluring woman stronger than themselves to submit to, and they’ll be proud to become her willing slaves!"
He alleged that women were innately “less susceptible than men to the negative traits of aggression and acquisitiveness, and could come to control the comparatively unruly male sex by alluring them.” This controversial‘girls run the world’ prediction was very much ahead of his time. In a 1937 interview with The New York Times he claimed –
“The next one hundred years will see the beginning of an American matriarchy–a nation of Amazons in the psychological rather than physical sense,” adding that, “women would take over the rule of the country, politically and economically.”
So yeah. Wonder Woman’s creator was a guy who was really into strong dominating women and believed in a future Matriarchy.
Now, obviously, Wonder Woman has changed a lot since these early days. She’s not always consistently written (no super hero is), but her status as a Feminist Icon is fairly indisputable.
Demeter (Δημήτηρ) → Demeter, identified with the Roman goddess Ceres, is the goddess of the harvest, who presided over grains and the fertility of the earth. She presided also over the sanctity of marriage, the sacred law, and the cycle of life and death.
“Goddess of seed, of fruits abundant, fair,
Harvest and threshing, are thy constant care;
Who dwell’st in Eleusina’s seats retir’d,
Lovely, delightful queen, by all desir’d”.
Demeter is the goddess of corn, grain, and the harvest. She is the daughter of Cronus and Rhea. It is Demeter that makes the crops grow each year. The first loaf of bread from the harvest is sacrificed to her. Demeter is the goddess of the earth, of agriculture, and of fertility in general. Sacred to her are livestock and agricultural products, poppy, narcissus and the crane.

Florida city police department embedded with KKK members
July 21, 2014
Ann Hunnewell and her central Florida police officer husband knelt in the living room of a fellow officer’s home, with pillow cases as makeshift hoods over their heads. A few words were spoken and they, along with a half-dozen others, were initiated into the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, she says.
Last week, that initiation ceremony, which took place five years ago, stunned residents of the small town of Fruitland Park, who found out an investigative report linked two city officers with the secret hate society that once was violently active in the area. Ann Hunnewell’s ex-husband, George Hunnewell, was fired, and deputy chief David Borst resigned from the 13-member Fruitland Park Police Department. Borst has denied being a member.
James Elkins, a third officer who Ann Hunnewell says recruited her and her husband, resigned in 2010 after his Klan ties became public.
Happy Batman Day!
