Venezuelans younger than 30 (majority of the pop) have not known any govt other than that of Hugo Chávez or Maduro. For them, “Chavismo” is the past…Blaming the CIA, the “fascist opposition,” or “dark international forces,” as Nicolas Maduro and his allies customarily do, has become fodder for parodies flooding YouTube. The concrete effects of 15 years of Chavismo are all too visible in empty shelves and overflowing morgues. The youth who are continuing to protest in almost all of Venezuela’s large cities, risking brutal beatings, savage torture, and death, are convinced that they will not have a better future unless the policies to which this government is strongly committed are changed. And the only government promise they believe is its pledge to stay the course regardless of results or what its opponents say.
Just a fraction of the cool stuff I learned when researching women’s history.
Rosalind Franklin got fucking ROBBED. She did all the research and all the work to discover That DNA is a double helix which was like revolutionary at the time but she gave it to Watson and crick to look over and they took her research and published it as their own and won a Nobel prize for it (I’m pretty sure it’s been three years since AP bio) and she couldn’t do anything about it and no one believed her.Not to mention she died earlier than she should have because of the radiation poisoning from doing so many x-rays to discover what she did about DNA.
I… I didn’t know about the first university in the world. I always thought it was Bologna, in Italy O_o
lies from the pit of hell
You know what’s sad? She probably put a ton of spit and hair gel in that shit and it still looks like trash.
bc to white ppl tangled, dirty hair matted with spit and beeswax is the same thing as “locking naturally”
…y’all are so judgmental and rude.. and for no fucking reason. the thing is, her spirit is probably beautiful, and you’re judging her and being mean af because of a fucking hairstyle….stupid shit. grow up
come to dc where every single black guy has dreads and they are filthy, never done, never growing, everyone is just doing it to be cool, look the same, is just the “dmv” thing to do…and y’all have an issue with her? please, give me a break.
y’all go this hard when they just dropped son of god, leaving melanin rich people out of the story again. and they keep selling y’all that story and you keep buying into it. they keep shitting on our ancestors.. and y’all on tumblr mad at some locs? get. a. life.
Stop smoking whatever you’ve been smoking because you’re not making any gotdamn sense.
Let’s take this in steps, shall we? Black people are discriminated against for having dreads. We are automatically drug dealers and an unsavory person overall. Our hairstyles can prevent us from having jobs because we are told it doesn’t look ‘professional’ enough. Now when White people do this shit, they’re seen as ‘quirky’, ‘outside the box’, and all those annoying little euphemisms for bullshit rebellion. You lot take our culture and are applauded for it. We embrace our culture and are punished for it. So shut the hell up about this.
Black lesbian couple found murdered in Galveston, TX
March 10, 2014
The bodies of two Houston women, a lesbian couple, were discovered near a dumpster in Galveston County, Texas. Crystal Jackson and her girlfriend Britney Cosby, both 24, had been together for two years and lived together. Their bodies were found Friday morning next to a convenience store dumpster, reports Houston’s ABC 13.
Relatives say the two women went to Galveston for Mardi Gras. Detectives believe they were killed elsewhere and their bodies moved. Reports also indicate that they were murdered in different ways. It’s currently unclear whether this was a hate crime or there was some other motive for the murder.
“That was her girlfriend, that was her soulmate,” James Randle, neighbor to Britney Cosby, told ABC.
Investigators are looking for a silver 2006 Kia Sorrento with paper tags–a car the couple recently purchased together. It is missing and whoever took it may be the same person who took their lives, reporters say.
Anyone with information regarding the victims’ deaths or the stolen vehicle is asked to call the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 866-248-8477.
Rest in power.

Hey there! This is gorgeous stuff, sorry to be late to the party.
Someone pointed me to your site and I saw you mentioned the 36 Lessons of Vivec as an inspiration. I’m starting to see some of the meta in your muscular, technicolor, batshit insanity-fueld mega-opus.
If you haven’t seen c0da.es/c0da yet, please drop by. I think it’s time for us to do a public mashup, soldier. ;)
Is this real life
(For real though I am flattered as hell! I don’t know if you can tell but KSBD is actually the most obtuse 36 lessons fan comic and I am a massive fanboy)

Warm up sketch of Vivienne (not wearing the outfit from her model but you can’t tell me a character is all about fashion and expect me to draw them in one outfit all the time) from DA:I because I am not in this fandom but she is hella fabulous and is one of the few things that makes me want to actually play this game.
Don’t whitewash Vivienne you piece of shit

The health hazards of sitting
“We know sitting too much is bad, and most of us intuitively feel a little guilty after a long TV binge. But what exactly goes wrong in our bodies when we park ourselves for nearly eight hours per day, the average for a U.S. adult? Many things, say four experts, who detailed a chain of problems from head to toe.”
