Think twice before you judge a parent.
Guys, please watch this. This has to be one of the most powerful videos in the world, I bawled my eyes out
I honestly only get annoyed at parents that neglect their kids VERY OBVIOUSLY
I love how this site loves to jump to conclusions but god forbid anyone researches….Egyptians and Greeks lived in 2 different areas. Fun fact! They weren’t neighbors! On to the art and rock lesson: Egyptian statues still have their noses on some recovered artifacts including wall reliefs and the like. Do you know what they carved with? Limestone, alibaster, wood and sandstone…. That shit wears out so fast cuse it’s SAND it’s weak material! Weak points on statues include noses, detail areas and limbs…. What is going to erode after thousands of years of being pummeld by sandstorms, water and elements of the cruelest degree? Noses, detail and arms made out of sandstone. BUT OMG THE GREEK STATUES ALL HAVE THEIR STUFF actually no they don’t. There’s a lot of statues that aren’t iconic (and even some that are) that were starting to lose their features… But these statues don’t also have to fight hellish sand storms like in Egypt. These Greek statues are also made of MARBLE OR BRONZE. Marble is a weak stone too BUT will stand the test of time when it’s in a nice temperate place that is Greece and Rome (again no sandstoms, seriously, sand is used in high velocity blowers to remove paint, rust, or smooth stone, seriously look it up) but there are plenty of these Grecian and roman statues giving way to weather AND YES losing their noses and fingers and arms and what not ALSO. Seriously you guys, this isn’t hard to look up… I learned these things in art classes which a ton of you claim to have also… Also learned a lot of this in history and geography. Look it up before you freak the hell out going around thinking the illuminati are busting off noses from cleopatra so everyone doesn’t think she may or may not have been black. You guys are so ON IT when an artist needs their art sourced cuse someone blogged it with out one but researching and refreshing on the ORIGINAL ARTISTS of the world? Come on….
#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…
I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.
The shade is real
i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.
The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.
Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.
Cleopatra was black, she was as black as Cicely Tyson. -Paul Mooney
Don’t hate yourself, and don’t be embarrassed. This is one of the biggest things that they have done to try and uphold the myth of Black inferiority/White supremacy. Erasing Blackness is what they’ve been doing since Day 1. They’ve done it then, they do it now, and they’ll keep doing it until the world ends.
I’m just going to put this here: my friend lost her health insurance cuse her mother quit her job… They looked into the affordable healthcare put into place by Obama aaaand were going to have to pay THOUSANDS of dollars upfront to get her insured…. Remind me how this is affordable again? I thought this was for people IN HER EXACT SITUATION AND OTHERS LIKE IT.
every time I see this it gets reblogged
When I worked at a fast food restaurant, I did a social experiment.
One day, I asked “do you want a girl toy or a boy toy?” No one went against gender roles.
The next day, it was “do you want a doll toy or a car toy?” Boys got dolls. Girls got cars.
Vocabulary is important.
you understand that though this seems to be a good sign it is likely the result of bronies coming to this establishment and ordering happy meals so they could get a mlp toy and then getting offended when it was called a “girl toy” and possibly bullying the employees given the behavior of bronies
obviously the change in itself is good but given the particular toys in question i am not convinced that this came about due to a desire for children’s toys to be non-gendered and that it is instead the result of the bizarre machismo belonging to the cult of the cartoon horse
i wish this change was universal because like gendered toys being ludicrous aside i always hated saying the phrase “boy toy” out loud and would never wish it on another human
in this case it’s totally just bronies tho
Seriously? You’re going to blame bronies? I’m a girl and my decision switched everytime we went, sometimes I wanted the god damn car, sometimes I wanted the fucking glittery animal thing. Doesn’t fucking matter about the fucking fandoms. I’m a god damn adult and still get the kids means for both the GIRL AND BOY TOYS. should I get pissed cuse there’s no adult toys?no because that would be obscene and this is fast food we’re talking about
I try to not curse around other people’s children (but I swear like a god damn sailor that’s had one hell of a fucking voyage) but I have the same feeling…. Why do we lose our shit over OMG HE SWORE but violence is..passé…. Not saying let your kid swear if that’s not your thing (I’ve been swearing my fucking head off since I could talk) but don’t let them become so numb to pain…. Swearing means you’re honest.. Being violent means there’s something wrong… Same with misogyny…. It’s not ok…. A superiority complex over a gender is not healthy and does not begat a healthy future…

i hate parents that treat their kids like shit and then have the audacity to ask for respect
We went over this in Semantics
I have been perpetually angry ever since
no double standards there, nope, no blatant misogyny/woman shaming here, nuh uh, none at all.
Uh…. I use these words regardless of gender… Granted they’re with good friends and we’re being dicks to each other buuuuuut words aren’t completely gender strict…. I’ll use the positive words to to apply to male and females…. It’s magical. I don’t let a barrier get in the way of using words cuuuuse they’re words…. Hurtful or positive. They’re words… We really shouldn’t use the negative words but…. Words don’t have a gender in my head… I call a her a her because that’s what she wants to be called… I’ll call a him a her too if that’s what they want. And a her a him… Or a him/her a they if they really feel they don’t apply to “the norm”… Yes words help denote gender… But it’s not strictly stuck to it…. Funny I’m using a derogatory picture to point this out but…. Words are words. They only mean something when they hurt or when they emote. Don’t use nasty words, despite the gender :D
