Today on medievalpoc we brainstormed historically accurate Asian women as Robin Hood in Medieval England, with possible Trotula the Medieval gynecologist as a Merry Woman, touched on 30 ways to become An Immortal from a non-Western perspective (including eating mermaid meat!), revisited the

And this is why I follow this blog.Khidr is ballin’!  Though eating mermaid flesh is pretty B.S. I know Takahashi’s the Mermaid Saga - screw that noise!

"In a now famous remark, Edward Gibbons observed that ‘of the first fifteen emperors Claudius was the only one whose taste in love was entirely correct’, meaning heterosexual. If Gibbon was right, the Roman Empire was ruled for almost 200 consecutive years by men whose homosexual interests, if not exclusive, were sufficiently noteworthy to be included for posterity."

Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality by John Boswell.

"But," added W.C. Firebaugh in 1966, “Claudius was a moron.”

"If we’re still conflating harassment with attraction, then the point has not been made clear enough: harassment is about power, not about sex. When making lewd comments to a woman he doesn’t know on the street, a man is not flirting. He’s asserting his dominance. He’s reminding that woman of her “place.” He’s performing a masculinity based on control. This isn’t sexual liberation."

Mychal Denzel Smith, "The intellectual defense of sexual harassment (Hint: there isn’t one)" (via ethiopienne)

fucking amen!

Reference Question of the Day
LITTLE BOY: Do you have any books that have Lego Joker in them?
ME: Yep, it looks like we have a book called the Lego Batman Encyclopedia, so I bet that would talk about the Joker in it.
LITTLE BOY: You mean THIS book? (whips the book out from behind his back)
ME: That's the exact one I mean! Gosh, since you're so good at finding books, what do you need me for?
LITTLE BOY: I thought you would enjoy my company.

I saw UNDER THE SKIN last night and I’ve concluded that I only want to watch movies like this for the rest of my life. 
I’m tired of men’s stories. I’m tired of loud, obnoxious exposition. I’m tired of visual monotony. Basically, I’m tired of seeing the same film over and over.
I want women’s stories. I want women who are sexual and undiscovered. I want women who are allowed to discover and engage with the world on multiple, complex levels. I want quiet movies. I want to be able to see the what but not always the why (that is a more realistic story to me anyway). I want visually stunning films. 
This film is very important to me.
