    something i want singlets to understand is that if y'all ever feel the need to weigh in on "syscourse", literally go by what's backed by decades of scientific studies.

    like respectfully, fuck "i don't want to invalidate peoples' experiences 🥺🥺🥺" because the people you're not invalidating are either traumatized and being manipulated and misinformation or faking a disorder for shits and giggles. the people you ARE invalidating are people who both are traumatized and don't want other traumatized people to be misinformed, and don't like people faking their disorder for shits and giggles.

    #there's no scientific proof backing up endos #most if not all endos agree that the entire concept started on the internet #and there's a post detailing the history of endos that shows in great detail with proof that the entire community was founded on ableism #like. singlets. if y'all want to help out disabled people so bad maybe actually listen to the disabled people. #who not only have first hand experience but also so much science on their side #ethan 🌧️#spicy topics #uh oh ethans getting heated about endos again

    “Brands Hanging Barbarous, Grotesque Dark Age Relic,” Toronto Star. September 29, 1931. Page 01 & 03. ---- Brokenshire’s Spiritual Adviser Scores Method of Administering Capital Punishment --- CALLS FOR CHANGES --- Rev. T. W. Barnett, rector of St. Clement’s church, Jones Ave., and spiritual advisor to John Brokenshire until the latter was hanged a week ago, writes the following letter to The Star: ‘As one who is indaily contact with young delinquents, I feel it my duty to bring before the minds of the public in general and church people in particular, some of the problems which confront one from day to day. If these problems were more widely known, it might be that some wrongs would be righted.

    ‘First of all, I am convinced that it is time we had some better system of examining these youthful criminals. I say it with very much regret, yet I fear it is true, the home failed. Almost every case one investigates can be traded to bad home training. Now, if that is so, it seems to me that the government should be specifically careful in the handling of these cases, and that the young man should have a thorough physical and mental examination.

    ‘Take, for example, the case of John Brokenshire. He was sent straight to the penitentiary on his first appearance in court. Now it is my strong conviction that if we had here an institution run on the Borstal lines, the country would most likely have been saved a lot of money, to say nothing of the unnecessary loss of life.

    ‘The Guelph reformatory comes nearest to the type of training that is most beneficial to these first offenders or youthful criminals. One can only wish that we had more more like Mr. C. F. Neelands. But how many people have ever stopped to think that even the finest institution can, as it were, only wash the outside of the cup and platter. What these wayward young men need is a change of heart and no institution, however good the discipline or equipment it may have, can bring about this change. So here we have to admit sorrowfully and painfully that the Church of Jesus Christ has failed, as well as the home.

    Few Do Prison Work ‘Take as an example, ‘Toronto the Good,’ as this city is affectionately called. Out of all the great church bodies in this city, only one church bodies in this city, only one church (the Anglican) is doing prison work. Is one Anglican cleric sufficient to cope with such a tremendous work as our police courts present day after day?

    ‘Look again at Guelph Reformatory. It is dependent on the Ministerial Association at Guelph for the conducting of a Sunday service, and for this an honorarium of $5 per Sunday is paid. Does not a Christian land owe more Christianity than that to its law-breakers? Take Burwash as another example. One cannot imagine a more spiritually destitute place anywhere. It is high time the Christian people of Ontario were alive to these facts, and to a sense of their responsibility. Are the home and the Christian religions going to leave the training of our youth to this fate?

    ‘The next problem which we have to consider in our work among the criminal class is that of long sentences meted out to men, many of them mere boys. Can any good purpose be served by sending these very young delinquents to the penitentiary for periods of from 10 to 20 years? Would it not be much belief to give these people some very serious punishment, and after that, if they persist in crime, put them in a penal institution?

    ‘Then, as men go further and deeper into crime, we find ourselves up against the greatest problem of all, the man in the death cell awaiting execution. Is it not a very bad policy to keep such a man waiting for two, three, or six months after he has been sentenced to death? In the old land he is allowed three clear Sundays in which to make his appeal for mercy to man and to his Maker. Here, the waiting time drags on so long that it is impossible to get the condemned man to concentrate on the things of God, for he keeps hoping for an eleventh hour reprieve.

    ‘It is not really kindness to the man either. Every time I went to see Brokenshire, he would say, ‘Why are they keeping me?’ They intend to hang me anyway.’ I had to spend most of last Tuesday around the sheriff’s office, waiting word from Ottawa, and this only came through after Toronto had wired Ottawa for it. Then, at about 1:30 p.m., when I told the condemned man he had to die at 8 a.m. next morning, he was very upset to think they had kept him waiting so long. Then, and not till then, did he set himself definitely to prepare to meet God.

    ‘And now what can one say for the actual hanging? Just think of it, after nearly two thousand years of Christianity, we hold on to this grotesque and barbarous method of capital punishment. If we are going to keep this relic of the dark ages, why not execute the man in public and leave the body hanging for days? As it is, just a few officials, whose presence is required, witness the cruel scene.

    ‘It in not my intention to write in order to work on the feelings of anyone, but were I to describe the scene minutely, from the moment the hangman enters the death cell until we solemnly process to the death chamber, there is no Christian man or woman but would be horrified beyond words. All I can say, ‘Canada, awake, awake, awake.’ If we must have capital punishment, surely there are more refined ways of doing away with a man, and, if we want to diminish crime in all its forms, it is high time organized Christianity commended a great forward drive.

    ‘It must start in the home if the family altar must be reared once more, even if the family were only to repeat, as a family, the Lord’s Prayer. Public worship must not be neglected as it has been. The family, as a family, must recognize God’s house and his day.

    ‘Teaching of morals in our schools would also be a great help towards the strengthening of the character of our youth. All this reminds me of a quotation I heard, many years ago, and which I have never forgotten - ‘You may legislate and legislate, you may educate and educate, but what you need to do is to regenerate.’ And so, at the end of our survey, we are just where we were at the start - confronted with problems which need a higher power than man’s to cope with them. And so we would appeal to the Church of God in this province to awake to its sense of duty and Christian discipline.’

    Nine barrel pole cannon. 16th century. China. (Verosaurus)

    These cannons were held on a pole and the attackers would fire all nine-barrels at once from a single touch hole. 

    The small holes on this pole cannon means that its owners probably fired arrows from it.

    "Avantibai Lodhi (or Avanti Bai Lodhi; died 20 March 1858) was an Indian freedom fighter and the queen of Ramgarh (present-day Dindori) in Madhya Pradesh. An opponent of the British East India Company during the Indian Rebellion of 1857, information concerning her is sparse and mostly comes from folklore. In 21st century, she has been used as an icon in Lodhi politics, she comes from the Lodhi Community."
