[clutches my pearls] Trans people in 1921?!??! But I thought trans people were trend of today’s youth!
I’d like to add my great great aunt Flora!
Y'all wanna know why we don’t see or hear about trans people from that era?
That’s because that picture was taken at what is known in its native language as Institut für Sexualwissenschaft, it is the place where the first trans healthcare was developed, where the term transsexual was coined.
Do you want to know what happened to the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft?
It was the victim of the very first Nazi book burning. Their teachings were outlawed and their books destroyed. Their leaders - such as Magnus Hirschfeld - were criminalized and exiled, if not outright murdered.
The fascists exterminated not just a generation of trans people, but they erased our history from the books almost entirely. It took us almost a century to get back to where we are now.
We’ve always been here, but our future is not guaranteed. We have to fight for our survival, because it’s happening again.
Just adding that Hirschfeld was Jewish. This attack was undoubtedly because he dared to be gay and Jewish.
Surnames are just as important as given names. So, I compiled a list of the websites I use to find my surnames.
- English Surnames
- Dutch Surnames
- Spanish Surnames
- Scottish Surnames
- German Surnames
- Italian Surnames
- Irish Surnames
- French Surnames
- Scandinavian Surnames
- Welsh Surnames
- Jewish Surnames
- Surnames By Ethnicity
- Most Common Surnames in the USA
- Most Common Surnames in Great Britan
- Most Common Surnames in Asia
For whoever needs these.
I NEED THE ITALIAN LAST NAMES SO BAD
Asia is not a single country.
“Asia is not a single country.”
I usually just settle for Behind the Name. Thank you.

Tama is boss
THE TRAINS HAVE CARTOON TAMAS ON THEM
Sad update everyone, Tama recently passed away… An estimated 3,000 people, including railway officials, attended Tama the cat’s funeral on Sunday, days after she died of heart failure aged 16. [x]
For those who haven’t read articles about it, the local shrine elevated her to a god. She’s now the Eternal Stationmaster and patron god of the station.
Now I’m crying thanks
and a new cat was hired right?
yep! her name is Nitama (essentially ”second tama” or “tama II”) and she served under Tama as an apprentice before being appointed her deputy
she works very hard
Everytime this crosses my dash, I reblog. It is the law.
I’m crying at 11pm over train cats
Nitama, already now a mature cat (born 2010), has a protege named Yontama (fourth Tama, b. 2016). There is no information available for either the physical befellment or tragic self-disgrace which has removed Santama from contention.
^Nitama majestic, and below with Yontama
okay but actually what happened to santama (or sun-tama-tama, which is her name because it’s a pun on santama) was that she was basically sent to train for the position in okayama and they liked her so much they refused to send her back
“Sun-tama-tama” (a pun off of “Santama”, lit. “third Tama”) was a calico cat sent for training in Okayama. Sun-tama-tama was considered as a candidate for Tama’s successor, but the Okayama Public Relations representative who had been caring for Sun-tama-tama refused to give the cat up writing, “I will not let go of this child, she will stay in Okayama.” 
As of September 2018, Sun-tama-tama is working as the stationmaster in Naka-ku, Okayama and appears occasionally on Tama’s Twitter account.
Every time I see this post there’s new info and it gets better
You are only allowed to scroll pass this after you pay tribute to the great Tama Station masters.
The shrine of Tama Daimyōjin (Great gracious deity Tama), next to the Kishi station where she worked.
Nitama presenting her yearly offerings to Tama Daimyōjin on the anniversary of Tama’s Death, June 23 (The offerings are presented by the company president, as Nitama is a cat and thus can’t hold the offerings herself) (Not pictured, but also present, Yontama)
you cannot pass without reblogging guys. i’m sorry, i don’t make the rules.
You don’t have to reblog this. But I will.
RAIHAN NSFW!!!!! PLS PLS PLS anything im starving
normally i don’t like requests this brief but HONESTLY? I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT U MEAN ANON!!! anyways i didn’t really go too much into it bc i didn’t want to over do it but if y’all want everything then (;;
anon asked: “idk if this is dumb but that ask u answered abt raihan inspired me!!! can i ask for hcs or maybe lil scenarios of raihan/leon/milo/kabu’s teeny tiny s/o stealing their clothes and their s/o is literally drowning in it and they’re just wearing it around the house? or maybe their s/o wearing it and mocking them but like for funsies? i thought itd be cute akdkcjfg”
a/n: these types of asks make me lose it !!!! i want to steal all their outfits even if they are ugly asf (looks at leon). anyways !!! enjoy. would luv to do this for more characters if ya…. if ya catch my DRIFT !!! –mod touko
- his hoodie is so warm you can’t help but always steal it: he jokes about him needing to be safe from the cold because it’s a dragon type’s weakness. he honestly doesn’t mind you stealing his jackets, he thinks you looks SO cute in them. he’d have a second one made just for you if you stole his often enough, he’d even put his cologne on it so it smells like him.
- since he’s so TALL his jackets often hang past your hands, the bottom of it falling far below your waist. raihan gushes over you, insisting you take SO many pictures with him. it turns from cute couple selfies to him directing a full on photoshoot with you and him. the pictures are all over his social medias the next day, he’s gotta flex how cute his s/o is to the world!
- just as he’s wrapping up his impromptu photoshoot, you decide to mimic his battle pose. it takes him a moment to realize what you’re doing, hands outstretched like claws, a grin that shows your teeth, but when he does he laughs, rotom phone floating around his head as it takes pictures of the sight without prompting. that’s it, you’re too cute, he decides, scooping you up in his arms, placing kisses all over your face. “it looks cute on you, but i think it’d look even better on my floor,” he flirts with a wink.
- his outfits are pretty big as he’s a very muscular guy, but he’s quick to let you wear anything of his you ask for. he really is the type of guy who would give you the shirt off his back, and that goes double for his s/o. when he hears you call his gym uniform cute, he’s getting all the extra ones he can find at his gym, getting them in a size that wouldn’t look like it was going to swallow you whole.
- milo’s coming home from doing a bit of training when he first sees you. you have a net in your hand and are trying to herd some of the wooloo that have escaped their pens. you have his hat on, it falling down into your eyes after almost every step, and even more than that, you’re wearing his gym shirt which almost looks comically big on you with the way it slides off and exposes your shoulder. it’s so adorable seeing you imitate his thick galarian accent, hoping that if you sounded like milo the wooloos would roll more easily back into their pens. it doesn’t seem to be working.
- milo swoops in and quickly rounds up the wooloos, his gentle demeanor easily calming the pokemon enough that they’d roll straight on into the gates. you huff, sitting on top of the pasture’s wooden fence, but milo can’t seem to take his eyes off you. “you look as cute as a baby wooloo in that!” he says, a light blush on his cheek and a huge smile on his face. you blush at his honesty, pulling his green scarf you borrowed of his over your face. he gently takes his hat off your head and ruffles your hair, planting a kiss to your cheek. “though… mine is a little big on you, why don’t you wear the ones i bought for you?” his eyes shine with innocence, and it makes you blush even more. “well… because those don’t smell like you!” you say, and milo has to prop himself on the fence to keep from falling over… you are much too cute!
- have you SEEN his hypebeast cape? it’s so big and comfy and kabu hardly ever wears it so it’s pretty much yours now. kabu is a fire type gym leader, it’s not like he needs it very much anyways. besides, you look so cute in it steam almost comes out of his ears the first time he sees you wear it. kabu.exe has stopped working.
- you take it as a bad thing when you see him red-faced. is he angry at you? you pout and stand up, arms outstretched, staring at him with curious eyes making you look even more adorable, kabu has to turn away lest he burn up. “do you not like it on me?” you ask, and he’s quick to compose himself, the tips of his ears still burning red. he shakes his head and assures you it looks so good on you, even better than it looked on him when he was a younger man.
- deciding to tease him a little bit, you jog up to him, imitating his trot he does into the stadium. he can’t see your legs because of the long cloak, but he knows what you’re doing. putting your hands behind your back, you mimic the stance he does in battle, and he just shakes his head. “kid, your teasing isn’t good for my heart,” he smirks, kissing you on the forehead, “seeing you in that it… well, as long as you only wear it in our house, it’d throw off my concentration anywhere else.” his voice gets low as he sneaks his hands under the coat, eager to find your soft skin underneath.
- his outfits are so ugly and you make sure to remind him every day of this fact by constantly stealing them so he can’t wear them. he’s skeptical at this point of your true intentions, because he always sees you wrapped up in his heavy cape, but you assure him it’s because you’re keeping him from looking stupid (and it’s not because it smells good like him and is like a blanket on you – definitely not the reason).
- leon once walked in seeing you in his outfit (his full champion gear – stupid snapback on and everything), trying to do his charizard pose in front of the mirror in his room. his cape appears to be so heavy, though, your shoulders are slumped over as you struggle to spin around. leon lets out a laugh, alerting you to his presence and you whip around, almost stumbling to the ground as the cape is so damn heavy… why is it so heavy? what is it made of anyways? even leon didn’t seem to know when you asked him.
- he quickly walks over to you, taking the cape off your shoulders and throwing it on his bed. admiring you now in the rest of his outfit. it appeared to be a little loose on you, but the outfit was made to be tight on him. and the way the tights looked on your legs… leon wanted to–
“leon… you’re staring.” you mumble, hitting him lightly on the chest. flustered, he can only manage to tease back, “huh, now that i’m looking at it maybe my outfit is a little goofy. somehow you make it look cute, though.”
[Video: a construction worker shoveling dirt as children on the other side of the fence yell “YAY!” every time dirt is moved.]
Often I am struck with the child like desire to just dig a hole. Kids love to dig holes.
Kids have a pure admiration for blue collar workers. Garbage truck drivers, construction workers, fire fighters, etc. They appreciate and respect these people more than grown ass adults do.
Cause kids see big trucks and machines and the awesome people that know how to use it. Their mentality is “Parents don’t let me play in dirt and this guys gets PAID to play in dirt”
And that’s a good thing. We need to hold on to that and foster it in kids. That all labor is valuable and that there is no shame in doing it.
This is taught OUT of kids. And thata the problem. Dont destroy or undermine the admiration for the diggers and garbage guys. Cuz they keep us goin! I’m always grateful to the guys in the garbage truck and the people working behind the orange barrels on the highway.

And you should!
Nobody will ever understand how much I love this blessed woman and that upsets me
Her name is Stephanie Thomas! There’s an article about her here, and her website is cur8able.com.
I love this!
I’ve literally seen Riker do all of these
The man is just tall enough that he doesn’t have to move chairs.
Fun fact! He did this because Jonathan Frakes had a back problem. It was easier for him to do this
Fascinating! I did not know that!
it’s why he’s always doing the riker lean, too! where he puts one foot up on something and rests an arm on his own leg! he fucked up his back moving furniture when he was younger.
not sure if I should collapse on the floor laughing, being impressed by how much tall he is or being sorry for his back.
