LOOK GUYS I CAN BE PEOPLES TOO
Happy International Women’s Day to all my tough broads out there!
ok im probably just being overoptimistic (or projecting) but i felt like that episode really hinted sherlock being asexual
when the bridesmaid said “i wish you weren’t.. whatever you are” i’ve been there in that exact situation where someone’s telling me “i wish you could reciprocate” and the…
I’m on board with you. He’s much more complex than just being gay. It’s like he’s way more evolved than a normal run of the mill human.
Did you really just say that asexuality is more complicated than homosexuality & that it’s a sign of a “more evolved human”??
Where the hell is this coming from?
How to Colonize (for Kids!), as explained by this 20th century French board game:
- Hoist the French flag onto your newfound soil
- Build a hospital
- Erect a school
- Open your harbor
- Reap the benefits of rich natural resources from around the world and sail back to France with goodies in tow
This “trading game” is an example of the lasting mindset of the race to colonize. More from curator Isotta Poggi about this questionable game.

ARE WE GOING TO IGNORE THE FACT THAT OBAMA FOLLOWS JHONEN VASQUEZ, THE CREATOR OF INVADER ZIM AND A COMIC ABOUT A HOMICIDAL MANIAC
Oh shit wait, Ellen too?
It just dawned on me that I’m what society fears.
A woman who is quite sexual and sees nothing to be ashamed of it, who doesn’t desire a romantic relationship with anyone and is exclusively sexually attracted to other women.
I’m a slut, but I’m a slut who’s never going to fuck a man - much less touch one.
Oh, some people would look down at me and scoff. Call me a terrible example, worst of the worst, a heartless creature and someone not to be associated with.
I just feel like a sexy tiger.
Hear me roar, bitches.
So, there’s site called Duolingo & it’s a really great site to use if you want to learn a new language. It’s completely free to use & the lessons are “gamified”. This thing is addictive & this is coming from someone who struggles with language & having absolutely no motivation.
The only downside I’m aware of is that the selection of languages is very limited & they’re all common European languages (English, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French & German).
But it doesn’t have to be like that for long, because the language incubator exists.
Since I’m not really multilingual I don’t know exactly how the incubator works, but basically the language incubator is where bilingual people apply to volunteer for making new lessons for the site in a language they’re fluent in. So when I found out about this I immediately thought of how valuable of a tool this potentially could be in help saving endangered languages, especially those that are hard to find & learn about.
Obviously it’s not the same as an interactive class or speaking with someone face to face, but I think this site is worth mentioning for people who have internet access (but maybe not those other things) & people who don’t learn well in a traditional classes alone.
So yeah, just thought I should throw that possibility out there for anyone whose bilingual in an endangered language & really wants to contribute in some way, especially if it’s through the internet/digital means.
(also reblog & tag this in whatever endangered languages you know if you think this may be a good idea)
