One of the most warmly human things I’ve ever seen was an old parchment from the Irish middle ages, the scribe’s cat had walked across the page and left inky pawprints on the page.
Oh, here’s another:
It would appear that Asian scribes were also plagued by feline predations:
i’m thinking about how cats hold their babies and how so many mammals also hold their babies and also about how physical touch is a love language
but mostly i’m thinking of this:
in case nobody had guessed, i’m touchstarved.
i had this image in my head but i found it again <3
a hug is the universal expression of love!!!
What if air nomads are pacifists bc they used to do shit like suffocating people and then saw the destruction they caused so turned away from it 🤔🤔
secret lore 👀? what if the reason why air nomads distance themselves from the rest of the world is because they don’t want to be tempted back into that cycle of violence
is it just me or is NASA weirdly aggressive in their article about black holes?
can a black hole destroy the earth?
no, you idiot.
black holes aren’t planet gluttons, you bitch.
and the earth isn’t some weak-ass planet that would just fall in to a black hole like a sucker.
and that dumbass sun that we’ve got isn’t big enough to make a black hole like other stars.
This reads like an exhausted doctor explaining that no, you fucking moron, vaccines do not cause autism.
hey, so pride in bulgaria is not going very well.
the parade in our capital Sofia will be on the 12th of june, and there have already been several instances of harassment of lgbtq folks by neonazis.
luckily, i’m not openly or visibly queer, but as a bi girl this is getting kind of scary. i can see the tension building up for some kind of a violent action.
Here’s a link in bulgarian documenting recent queerphobic attacks.
Here’s a translation by me, including some clarifications:
15 may - the first burgas pride in history (burgas is a bulgarian city by the sea) is surrounded and attacked with eggs, cucumbers, rocks and smoke balls by counterprotesters, organized by Vuzrajdane, translated Renascence (a relatively new far-right party) and PUC (Parents United for Children).
25 may - a presentation of a children’s book including same-sex parents in The Steps (a lgbt+ space) is attacked and surrounded by supporters of “traditional values“.
30 may - a projection of the movie “Shells“ by Slava Doycheva is occupied by around 20 young men with Lukovmarsh and Bulgarian National Union symbols (both of these orgs are fascist as fuck), led by the youth branch of VMRO (far-right party)
1 june - on the opening day of the community center “Rainbow Hub“, the entire front door was vandalized with homophobic stickers.
1 june - in the underpass of metrostation Serdika, 6 men from Bulgarian National Union spread homophobic propaganda, harass a person who they recognize from the queer community and threaten him. (luckily a big antifascist crowd gathered and helped the dude)
1 june - the entire facade of The Steps is vandalized with eggs and foam.
“What rights do you lack?“ “Who’s hindering you?“ What about the right to watch a movie? To read a book? To gather for a peaceful protest against everyday harassment or for a celebration of your community? As wrote the director Slava Doycheva: “Next month will be a daily risk for us - I don’t know how many more examples we need… There are moments in history where you should choose which side are you on.“
angle is bad but this man is burning a rainbow flag
this is a news source saying “a football group blocks Radio Plovdiv for presenting gay books“
“we continue the successful fight against LGBTI propaganda. Every day if we should“
the eggs and foam on “the steps“
i’d appreciate if you could rb this.
To those who reblogged this - thank you so much! I decided to add some resources so you can help lgbt+ people in bulgaria.
Here is a link to 2 petitions you can sign. You can also access lots of relevant information (mostly on legal affairs concerning lgbtq people) on this site, some of it in english.
You can donate to the organization Bilitis via paypal, bank transfers and patreon. It spreads awareness and participates in different campaigns and projects, it deals with legal matters - the basic ngo stuff. But it also provides material aid to queer people struggling because of the pandemic and group therapy for queer youth.
You can also support some of the more radical anarcho-queer voices at Violetki Collective and donate to them on paypal. (also come to the server. it’s based, you can get info about events and actions and talk to fellow radicals)
Say it with me folks:
- “Eat the rich” means 1%ers and billionaires
- middle class is closer to poverty than being a multimillionaire
- “The rich” does NOT include children of billionaires (come on we’re at least slightly better than the plagues of Egypt)
- Upper middle class children SHOULD NOT feel guilt over having money
- Being aware of privilege and using your privilege to help others IS NOT a guilt trip
- Constantly feeling guilty helps no one
- Billionaires, however, should feel guilty over hoarding wealth.
- Upper middle class is NOT rich
- Black Lives Matter
- Trans rights are human rights
My uncle was one of the top surgeons in the country. He was upper middle class definitely. When he got cancer, his insurance didn’t cover all the treatments he would need and after 5 years he drained his savings on cancer treatments (while still working most of that time) and eventually died because he couldn’t afford the expensive treatments that might have saved him.
If you are upper middle class and you get sick, it will likely bankrupt your family. It’s fucked.
For all of the idiots in the notes ^
Honest to god - even if you make 6 figures a year? you’re closer to poverty than true wealth. Check your shit and remember who your real allies and enemies are guys.
A 6 figure income is a lot right?
That’s say: 223,000 dollars a year
Which is 112 dollars an hour.
Most people would consider that upper middle class. That’s enough money to have a nice house, go on fun vacations. That’s slight more than the average doctor makes.
223,000 dollars is what Jeff Bezo makes in a minute
the well-off and the rich are not the same.
PLEASE DO NOT THINK FOR EVEN A SECOND THAT YOUR VOICE WILL NOT HAVE AN IMPACT THIS IS LITERALLY THE BARE MINIMUM
I’m sorry for putting this in the BLM and stop Asian hate tag but in the last few days posts tagged with “Palestine” have not been showing up.
