I am:
awkward. really, truly awkward. also opinionated (quietly) and sometimes rather sad. I'm quite passionate about a lot of things that don't seem to go together, so this is not at all organized. It's more a collection of sorts!
I post:
things that catch my eye or tickle my whimsy. and occasionally, reposts of angry, politics-related garbage

If someone were to forcibly enter a woman’s house without her consent no one would go up to her and say “maybe if your house didn’t look so expensive this wouldn’t have happened, you should make it look less wealthy” so why is that if someone forcibly enters a woman without her consent they say “if you didn’t dress like a slut this wouldn’t have happened, you should dress more modestly”?

why doesn’t this have more notes

During World War II, Josephine Baker served with the French Red Cross and was an active member of the French resistance movement. Using her career as a cover Baker became an intelligence agent, carrying secret messages written in invisible ink on her sheet music. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre, and received a Medal of the Resistance in 1946. In 1961 she received the highest French honor, the Legion d’Honneur awarded by then President Charles de Gaulle.
Our loss, U.S.A….

If you don’t admire the shit out of J. Baker, who was also pretty openly bisexual and adopted NINETEEN children in addition to the badassery mentioned above, I want you to go sit in the corner and think about your life choices.

um she was also a huge civil rights activist and her refusal to perform for segregated audiences at major clubs that were fallin over themselves to book her helped de-segregate vegas performance venues
aaaand she had a pet cheetah

I mean, sometimes I think that humanity is a cesspit that should never have existed, but then I remember Josephine Baker existed. 

Like, the exoticizing, sexualized-blackness fetishization of Josephine Baker is remarkably foolish in that it ignores that she was an ACTUAL FASCINATING HUMAN.

If you can’t find a place on your blog for Patrick Stewart in a bathtub dressed like a lobster, then your blog probably doesn’t deserve such majesty anyway.

ALICE ROOSEVELT WAS HARDCORE. “She was known as a rule-breaker in an era when women were under great pressure to conform. The American public noticed many of her exploits. She smoked cigarettes in public, swore at officials, rode in cars with men, stayed out late partying, kept a pet snake named Emily Spinach (Emily as in her spinster aunt and Spinach for its green color) in the White House, and was seen placing bets with a bookie. 


When it came time for  Teddy Roosevelt’s family to move out of the White House, the president’s daughter, Alice,  also buried a Voodoo doll of the new First Lady, Nellie Taft, in the front yard. Which caused her to be banned from the White House. Source

I like her swagger.

people (and bethesda, jesus christ) tend to forget that according to the lore, there are multiple types of Khajiiti. We only typically see the Suthay-Rhats, but Khajit can be born with multiple levels of feline appearance dependent on the moon cycle they are born under. On one end of the spectrum you have some Khajiit who look practically like Bosmer with cat whiskers, and on the other end you have Khajiit who legit just look like housecats but still have sentience and intelligence. For instance, this would be considered to be a perfectly normal Khajiit family in Elsweyr.
