i want to create a tv show about a group of friends where they’re all queer except the one token cishet friend who’s only there to say stereotypical “straight” things for laughs like “macklemore got me into rap” and “my mom and i got into a fight because she wouldn’t buy me a fourth obey snapback”

Or we could just stop stereotyping people.

you’re cast

Japan’s annual Kanamara Matsuri festival, aka the “Festival of the Steel Phallus.”

(Source: Getty Images)

What the actual literal fuck

legend goes that a woman who had vagina dentata or “teeth” in her vagina (be it a demon or std), castrated her lover’s penis on their wedding night. she asked a blacksmith for help and he made her pretty much an iron dildo to break the teeth off

the tradition celebrates this iron penis, hence its name, festival of steel phallus

in more modern times, sex workers would to go to a shrine to pray for protection from STDs while couples would pray for healthy pregnancies and marriages.

it is also regarded as a fertility festival, where couples would pray for the health of their babies or hope that babies are in the future

the tradition has raised HIV awareness and research efforts in japan so like yeah it’s actually a very neat and positive thing yeah

Marble Cylinder Seal, Mesopotamia, Middle Assyrian period, c. 1250–1150 BC
A Winged Hero Pursuing Two Ostriches
In one of the most striking Middle Assyrian seals, a hero pursues an adult ostrich, possibly representing the earthly equivalent of the griffin, the conveyor of death. The fleeing ostrich, with its head turned back in fear and fury and its feathers bristling, ranks among the greatest Mesopotamian depictions of animals. In the biblical Book of Job (39:13–17), the ostrich is considered a malevolent creature because it disdains its young, which may account for the presence of the young ostrich and enhances our understanding of this extraordinary seal.

NEW RULES TO ADDRESSING ME AS A FAT PERSON

sourcedumal:

pardonmewhileipanic:

New Rules: 

1. FOOD: If you want to come at me about “how much I eat”, you need to provide an exact food diary of everything I ate in the past week, (not just what it was, but how much and when). Then you also need to provide at least 36 examples of thin people eating the same amounts/foods, and write a 10 page paper on why you don’t attack them, only me, and then provide 8 medically accurate and unbiased documents proving without a SHRED of doubt that these thin people eating the same amounts/things are as healthy/healthier than me.

2. HEALTH: if you want to come at me about my health/that I’m going to die, you need to provide me with full professional doctors papers, PhD and all, as well as MY individual health records, and at least 12 UNBIASED research papers done by reputable doctors (dr. phil does not count) 

3. APPEARANCE: If you want to come at me about how I look to you, I am going to need a minimum of 245 photos of you, from all angles, with/without make up/beards/whatever, and you’re going to need to explain in a 12 page paper, single space, size 8 font, what it is about YOU and YOUR LOOKS that gives you the right to judge anyone else. Remember, I said looks only. I don’t give a flying fuck if you once helped someone move to a new apartment, this isn’t about nicest personality, this is about looks as you made it clear in attacking me for it.

Finally, and this is the most important rule of all, 

4. WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THESE PAPERS, PHOTOS, AND FOOD DIARIES? 

I need you to follow the below diagram, before ever coming to me with any of the above

Thank you. Have a nice day.

This is the best rule set ever

Private Birthday Party is a private collection of found photographic slides that depict Kansas City’s early drag ball culture throughout the 1950s and 1960s. With over 200 images, this collection is a rare, important look into the rich history of mid-century drag ball culture in middle America.

Thanks Dusti Cunningham!
