I love how alive the Buffy fandom still is despite the fact that it finished almost 10 years ago. Buffy will stand the test of time. Buffy is forever.

the other day we were discussing dating and this one dude was like “I don’t see the big deal why can’t people just ask people out without all the fuss” and another guy was like “well you get nervous and you get butterflies in your stomach ya know” and the first dude looked the other dude straight in the eye and said “DIGEST THEM.”

Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

How come I didn’t know this

Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.

"GIFTED" fuck you, GODDDDAMN

That is the correct response to learning this for the first time. There’s a reason my family took me to see ‘Malcolm X’ when it came out in theaters.

When I was looking for jobs, I thought about doing the same thing. Fortunately I didn’t have to. But I wondered if I didn’t get many responses because of my non-American name/spelling.

Zoos and Aquariums are for rehabilitating and protecting animals, many zoos have special breeding programs for endangered species, and both zoos and aquariums are great for educating people about wildlife

seaworld isnt one of these things, seaworld is a theme park. If you saw a tiger in a tiny cage where it could hardly move and forced to do tricks for dinner, youd be outraged right? Orcas and other sea creatures dont deserve this treatment either.

Now You Know (Source)

Why though? 😳

A Czech girl here to extensively talk about her country! This is actually fun tradition, and the ‘beating’ is mostly symbolic. It stings a bit but I can’t say that I’d consider it unbearably painful or abusive. Nobody forces women to participate, and today people only go to the other people they know. And honestly I find it much more preferable to tradition where they spill water on you or even worse perfume. (I did that once and I it was annoying and I smelled horrible. I’m happy for whipping thank you) Though there’s like revenge day for women who then spill water on guys. (I never did, or haven’t seen it done though)

As to why. Traditionally it is not because the men want to cause harm to the women, the spring whipping was meant as a way for women to stay healthy, pretty and fertile for the following year. The whip is called ‘Pomlázka’ which comes from the word ‘Pomlazení - Omlazení’ which translates into Rejuvenation. Young twigs are used for the whip to transfer the ‘life force’ into women.

The whip is usually traditionally made out of pussy willow so it’s flexible and women are more usually whipped on their legs rather than backsides, though I guess you usually cover both. And it’s not only unmarried women. Nowadays in most region it’s ‘all’ the women. Even my grandma gets symbolic whipping.

It was also a form of symbolic ‘courtship’. Traditionally on Easter we decorate actual eggs. There are many ways how to do this, personally I love decorating with bee wax (I got beekeepers in the family)  but also with onion peels and flowers.

Now the eggs are also a symbols of New life. And men ‘court’ women by whipping them (in the past some women actually took offence if nobody came to them) and the women give the men the decorated eggs as a sign of forgiveness and thanks for the rejuvenation. In some regions they also decorate their whips with bows. And Guys have to sing a Eastern Carol asking for the eggs. 

 It sound kinda brutal when you say they whip women, and sometimes there are alcohol issues, but generally it’s really tame and I find it to be fun tradition. 

Thank god you showed up before the 14 year old social justice bloggers did

Amandine Albisson - Estée Lauder modern muse



Here's a peak into the mind of an odd creature, who sees beauty in the dark and strange. I cannot promise any sort of revelations, but I at least hope I can provoke some thought or at least entertain. I'd love you hear from you followers! If you ever need someone to take to I'll do my best and show whatever kindness I can give. I also have a health centered blog: http://bendy--bunny.tumblr.com/
