it’s funny how if you’re not straight, the assumption is always that you like men
bisexual male: YOU’RE SECRETLY JUST GAY AND WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH MEN
bisexual female: YOU’RE JUST FAKING IT FOR MALE ATTENTION
gay male: YOU’RE ONLY GAY BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T HAVE A GOOD MALE ROLE MODEL IN YOUR LIFE
gay female: YOU’RE ONLY A LESBIAN BECAUSE YOU WERE HURT BY MEN IN THE PAST AND NOW YOU HATE THEM
like did it occur to you at any point that it’s not always about men
"The ‘320° Licht’ installation of urbanscreen uses the cathedral-like beauty of the Oberhausen’s Gasometer in Germany as the starting point for a fascinating game with shapes and light. Within a radius of 320 degrees graphic patterns grow and change on the 100-metre high inside wall of the Gasometer."

Folkdance Before the Archdukes
Oil on Canvas, 130 x 266 cm.
Not only does this depiction of a folkdance performed by the common folk of the Netherlands for a visiting member of the nobility show us a diverse crowd, it also has an example of how disability was depicted in medieval and renaissance European art.
The young man in the foreground running to fetch water almost certainly has Trisomy 21, also known as Down Syndrome. Depictions of both children and adults with Down Syndrome are common and well-documented in early modern artworks, in everyday scenes like this one as well as religious paintings and portraiture. Andrea Mantegna is known to have depicted Jesus Christ as having Down Syndrome in at least three separate painting:
Disability as well as racial diversity is another marginalized narrative in the art history education we most commonly receive in the United States. You can read more about this in On the Antiquity of Trisomy 21: Moving Towards a Quantitative Diagnosis of Down Syndrome in Historic Material Culture by John M. Starbuck, from the Journal of Contemporary Anthropology. You can read a bit more on the Wikipedia page for Themes in Italian Renaissance Painting, and A History of Intelligence and “Intellectual Disability”: The Shaping of Psychology in Early Modern Europe by C. F. Goodey.
Oh WOW this is an aspect of art and art history I’ve literally never thought of before. I can’t believe it hadn’t ever occurred to me to think about it before.
LOL man.never forget white people did nothing first neither the best, they sleep and eat false propaganda,
This is stunning
Chinese and Asian history doesn’t even register over here, we see very little of it
Whenever China is on TV they’ve got nothing good to say about it
Since 1980, 3000 native Canadian women have been murdered/gone missing. Indigenous women are five times more likely than other women to die as a result of violence. Sixty percent of known perpetrators are white men.Justice for all Indigenous Women! by Jessica Sabogal | Montréal
Despite push from the UN for a national inquiry, Canada continues to largely ignore the violence against Native Women. x
*watches Jon Stewart’s comments on Ferguson* hey look it’s a white man getting heaps of credit and adulation for saying the exact same shit that black people have been saying for weeks now. how unexpected.
WHITE SAVIOR! WHITE SAVIOR! bow down……*side eye*
I have mixed feelings about commentary like this because yes I agree that it’s problematic for white people to receive more credit and praise for things black people have been saying for years. But I also think it is necessary to have white figures with primarily white audiences to critique whiteness and white supremacy. Because whenever white people ask what they can do to help, I say, educate your people.
