A lot can happen in a season
THIS IS SO CUTE BABIES
Occasionally I’ll see posts on tumblr that discuss male same-sex relations in ancient Greece in a very dilute, glossed-over and superficial manner. Usually these posts contain a note of glorification of the practice of same-sex relations, and make the ancient Greeks sound like the perfect, most accepting, beautiful groups of peoples in the world at this time, and how we’ve just reverted in our way of thinking.
And that’s just plain bullshit.
Sometimes I reply to them, other times I ignore it, but today I figured I’d write up a quick little thing on how male same-sex relations really worked in ancient Athens. I’ve picked the city-state of Athens for a variety of reasons (ancient Greece as we know it today did not exist in the ancient world— rather, Greece was comprised of a variety of city-states that, depending on their mood, either got along great or wanted to destroy one another). First off, Athens probably as the most well known form of institutionalized male same-sex relations of all the city-states, because the Athenians, bless their little hearts, really loved to talk about themselves. They wrote things down, they kept documents and files, and we still have those documents in which to look back on to get a fairly substantial idea of how things worked. Places like Sparta did not keep records like the Athenians, and indeed, the only works we have at the time on Sparta were written by an Athenian named Xenophon.
As well, Athens is a city that most people, even with a basic understanding of Greek history, knows about. It’s the place where everything was happening, and it was the place that really, really, really valued male same-sex relations.
And, to keep things easy and nice and neat, we’re gonna do this in point form! Because point-form is loads of fun and gets more attention than a long-winded block of text.
never not reblog Scarlett calling idiots out on their bullshit
and the shitty part is that once scarlett called them out on their fucking bullshit, she automatically became coined a bitch. a bitch. for being brave enough to publicly tell them what was so annoying about a still continuing problem for women in media
"You work hard making independent films for fourteen years and you get voted best breasts.” - scarlett johansson
god i feel horrible for her. i feel horrible for every single woman in this world. and it was to the point where she decided to get breast reduction surgery for her to be taken more seriously as an actress. what the hell is wrong with everybody
and i never, ever understood the hate towards anne hathaway. new york times magazine stated “Anne Hathaway practically demands that we love her.” fucking wrong. anne never gave a shit about looking stuck up when she was out there on stage, preaching for gay rights and how wrong it is for men to constantly sexualize and put down women in the media in every single interview where a man asked the bullshit question “what diet plan did you use for your role in les mis, i bet every single girl wants to know”. she knew a backlash would come from for being so strong and forceful with her retortive statements, but they saved the people that mattered.
and another point. kristen stewart. why in the hell do people hate kristen stewart as a person. women today are expected to act pretty. nice. be respectful 24/7, never argue back, smile pretty, be a lady. don’t make rash, argumentative statements, because if you do, you are not a lady. this is a message our society tries to suffocate women with. kristen stewart will not smile for you, or act like a fuckin lady for you, because that is not her character
yet people hate her because she decides to be herself. “god kristen, you gotta smile some more, talk more ladylike”
what in the fuck for? absolutely nobody knows kristen stewart’s personality. she’s a private person. but just because she refuses to lie through her teeth to seem like a respectable, golden lady of hollywood, she’s considered a bitch. “do this or that because if you don’t you aint a lady” god fuckin damn all of you
its really early in the morning and i cant think straight so if my rant seems messy im sorry
PS… douche in the first gif is the same interviewer who pulled the same stunt on Anne Hathaway during her TDKR press tour.
None for you, Jerry Penacoli, none for you.
The best thing about both of these moments is that in both cases (even though it’s hard to tell with how this particular gifset is cropped), Renner and Downey are both obviously reacting negatively to the comment but just sit back and let Scarlett rip into the douchebags. Cause they know she’s got the situation fucking covered.
Hello I made a thing starring my favourite anime character, Obama-kun!
“We dressed up as the book Madeline, with six people dressed up as her and me as Ms. Clavel, their teacher. One of the Madelines, however, was the truly special one…the one with the beard, that is. Our experience was hysterical—I’d walk all the girls (and one guy) down the street in two straight lines. Guys would be walking the other way, whistling or hollering at all the pretty ladies. Then, as they got to the back of the line, they’d see my friend Brennan, then they’d see me, and I could tell that they were suddenly wondering if ALL the Madelines were men.”
the last sentence
There will never be a time when I don’t reblog this because it is my fave.
at this point my blood is probably 4.3% pasta sauce

I fucking knew it was Hannibal even when my phone wouldn’t load it
