anarcho-queer:

The NYPD killed more civilians in a span of 3 months than all of Germany’s police killed in a year.
84 shots were fired at one murder suspect in Harlem, another 90 shots at one fleeing unarmed man in Los Angeles. And that was just April.
More civilians are killed by America’s police force than soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. There’s a war on American soil and we’re to blind to see it.
Thanks Germany for giving us some perspective.

The Duel at Blood Creek, a 15 minute short film well worth watching.

Oscar-worthy IMO

This is the best thing I’ve seen this year!

I AM SCREAMING

I’m sure I’ve re-blogged this before, but I love it so much that here it is again!

"Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched."

((On a side note, this gives me a COMPLETELY different outlook on Virgos (My sun sign) sign they often refer to us as the “virgins”))

I know that sometimes it’s not “possible” to be in control of your own life because you’re still dependent on other people (like your parents, and that’s okay). But eventually, you become independent, and it’s in your hands to choose what will be best for you. You have that power!

"Never did like that much," is a baller and superb way to express your irritation with the way the patriarchy refuses to acknowledge how badass you are.

Before World War I, she shot a cigarette out of the mouth of the Kaiser of Germany at his request.
After the war started she sent him a letter asking for another chance, as she was afraid her aim might’ve been a little off.

Annie Fucking Oakley everyone

Epic lady who came from a very poor background and used her amazing rifle skills to make a living from a very young age. She had an awesome attitude!
