anything’s a dildo if you’re brave enough
I hate italian. I. HATE IT.
AND I HATE ITALIAN TRANSLATIONS.
CRAPPY LANGUAGE IS CRAPPY
“kill myself” was the most common answer when they contemplated the possibility of life as a girl
Yeah, tell me again how misogyny “isn’t real” and men and boys actually “love”, “like” and “respect the female sex”? This is how deep misogynistic propaganda runs in this world. Men and boys are so viscerally contemptuous of anything or anyone who/that is female or feminine, or perceived to be female or feminine, that they would rather commit suicide than to be associated with— or become a member of— the female sex. As Germaine Greer said, “women have no idea how much men hate them.”
they would rather die then be treated how they treat us

my grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary. my grandfather had alzheimer’s. he didn’t remember his children, his home or anything else, but as bad as it got, whenever he saw my grandmother he would say, ‘look at my beautiful wife!’”
Lions are dying off rapidly across Africa. Where there were once hundreds of thousands, there now may be as few as 30,000 of these amazing animals left, and their numbers are shrinking every day. That’s why I’m asking you to help me do something about it.
National Geographic has been working with communities in Kenya and Tanzania to implement a smart, affordable solution that is making a big difference. It’s called a boma.
Many of these communities rely on livestock for economic security. If a lion kills one of their herd, men of the village will track it down and kill it. Building a secure fence - called a boma - to protect the livestock from predators can be done quickly and easily, and it’s very effective in protecting herds. By guarding the herds, bomas also save lions from retaliatory killings.
I’m calling on Tumblr, fans of The Lion King, and anyone who’s been inspired by these big cats to help keep them safe. Please help support this project by making a donation on my fundraising page today. Every donation - 100 percent - will go toward building boma fences to protect lions, livestock, and livelihoods. $500 will build one boma. $25 will maintain it for a year. If you can’t contribute right now, help me reach my goal of raising $500 in one month by sharing this post. Working together, we can stop the dramatic decline in big cat populations. Thank you.
Darren within the span of 24 hours. I love all these looks.
(Obviously, not my photos. If one is yours, let me know and I will gladly credit you.)
I am convinced he could make a trash bag look hot.
I find the second one so fucking hot…
CHING MOTHERFUCKING SHIH
This lady was such a badass, I can’t count the ways, but let’s try.
She got married to an already successful pirate, Zheng Yi, and took over when he died. She was crazy strict to keep an iron fist over her fleet of pirates, and the punishments for stepping out of line were brutal. If you stole or looted from a town that provided assistance or tribute to the pirate fleet, Ching would chop your fucking head off with a battle axe and dump your lifeless body in the ocean. If you stole from the pirate treasury, or she thought you were stealing from the pirate treasury, Ching would chop your fucking head off dump your lifeless body in the ocean. Raping any captured female prisoners was punishable by immediate death. Fuck, if you had consensual sex while on duty you got your head chopped off and the woman was chucked off the boat no matter where they were at. Ching wasn’t fucking around, and she wanted to make damn sure you weren’t fucking around when you should have been working.
Two years after she took over, she got so notorious for ransacking towns and taking taxes on them that she pissed off the entire Chinese government, and sent out a massive fleet to bring her in line. Most pirates probably would’ve said this was out of their pay grade and taken off to hide out or ransack some other country.
Ching Shih said fuck that.
She not only faced them head on, she wiped the floor with them, killing hundreds and capturing sixty-something ships from the Imperial Fleet. Prisoners were given the choice of joining up or being executed on the spot. The Admiral of the Chinese navy, Kwo Lang, was so afraid of being captured by her or going back to admit he’d been beaten by her that he committed suicide.
For the next two years, Ching Shih not only kept on pirating, she fought off Chinese forces as well as Dutch and British warships that the navy called in to help. Finally the government gave up and offered her amnesty as well as amnesty for her then SEVENTEEN THOUSAND crewman. Ching Shih got to keep all her plunder, so she retired to the countryside where she opened up a brothel and lived until she was 69.
tldr: I’ve come to terms with the reality that I’ll never be as terrifyingly badass as this woman was.
You know, I heard of her, but I’d either forgotten or never heard that she grew old and retired having never been brought down or defeated ever.
She won being a pirate.
She got history’s high score.
This is never not funny
rebloggin’ cause that is the actual look on my face when that happens
I’m glad I’m not the only one who does this. Wha? When?
I’m having SO MUCH fun in the CC fandom right now, but please as usual remember to keep it on tumblr and do not tweet or link anything to Chris and Darren. Be respectful.
