Nordic gods : You know what I dislike in movies in almost all of them there is an ultimate good and a ultimate evil and hardly ever an in-between. That's what I like about our culture it doesn't have an Ultimate good or evil. The Aesir, Jotuns, Vanir, Elves, Dwarves. Each have done wrong and good they all have worked with each other and against each other. Unlike Christianity or most other religions where it is good or bad and no in between. This is why I loved the show Spartacus the bad guys were all people not some luminous villain. Which is another reason why my favorite characters in comics are Deadpool, Lobo, and Harley Quinn. They aren't just whitre and black. 14 hours ago - View -

Sarah Jane Hardt : Real Women: Forget the Disney Princesses I have never been a Disney princess type of girl. I wanted to be some kind of bird or flying creature. When I played with "Cindy", Britain's version of Barbie, but more anatomically correct, she was always the LEADER of "Toy Town" and had her choice of men. Yes, I was 8 years old. Leadership and sex played heavily into my persona even then. So I love this article, is speaks to me in ways little dresses and tiaras never could. Enjoy and let me know what you think.
Michele Francis : ok it is my role to be the barre by which people measure themselves: If you think you are having a bad day ... today's gutter dwelling includes
1.re-acquisition / reappearance of new stalker (11 texts or phone calls -ignored - in approx 21/2 hrs)
2. counting out the pennies from the change stash as JSA had not arrived in bank
- for the third time going to the co-op with £5 in 5ps (yay)
3. dealing with several depressed people - who are in shite situations not of their making
4. dealing with unscrupulous london solicitors and home office case workers in THAT immigration case
5. going to council to see what happens if JSA sanctions happen - we have a plan :)
and they said there didnt appear to be any stoppages (but I still ask, so why not in my bank??)
the best and loveliest was having cuppa with Harriet Godbold who not only showed me some beautiful artwork and mandalas, but also dealt - in her best Daughter of Boudica pikey-shaven red-head way - with said stalker.
Gotta love my girls
Books, so many books : thanks Assunta Napoleone for this question:
"K. everyone, I need a suggestion on my next book to read. I want something with wisdom, I am Pagan, maybe some kind of old Celtic heroine, teachings of the Old, etc... I just finished the Sevenwater Trilogy and loved it. Basically I want a novel with a spiritual pagan kick, or a true biography with pagan teaching...Or a self help, make me feel good book, always with pagan lining... Any suggestions?" 1 day ago - View -
I want to bring up so many things
Like how spartan women were equal to men, the only difference is they didnt have to put their lives on the line to go to war, more important, stoics and cynist philosophers said what? "men and women should wear the same clothing and receive the same kind of education. They also saw marriage as a moral companionship between equals rather than a biological or social necessity" Fucking greece started off kickass for men and women, it didn't bloody matter. IT DIDNT BLOODY MATTER.
The big problem, which you dont seem to understand is how politics, and government worked post roman empire. things became unruly, and more focused on who ever could rule with an iron fist. IT JUST SO HAPPENED THAT MOST MEN HAD FUCKING FISTS MADE OF TITANIUM. then joan of arc happened, and IRENE IN BYZANTIUM, QUEEN BOUDICA IN ENGLAND, FATIMA IN EGYPT, ELEANOR OF AQUATINE. WOMEN COULD DOMINATE. god whats the point here? what am I arguing? Im arguing it wasnt a matter of gender, it was a matter of STRENGTHS
I DONT WANT TO DEAL WITH THIS
I DONT WANT TO DEAL WITH BITCHING BASED ON THIS PATRIARCHY BULLSHIT
YOU CANT COMPLAIN THAT IM BRINGING UP A MINORITY AND THEN STATE THE MAIN IDEA OF THAT MINORITY
Anyway im sorry IF I MUTHAFUCKING OFFENDED YOU
no im seriously sorry, I seriously shouldn't have done this I knew it was going to go bad for everyone. But fuck that was really just a burst of anger that really just gave me nothing I could say. SO FUCKING WHATEVER 1 day ago - View -
