I'm a SoCal girl at the University of Alabama. I'm working on my MA in Women's Studies. I'm pansexual, poly, kinky, a huge nerd, and a fangirl. Many things will make more sense with reference to The Gentleman Friend.

what?

The wheels take impact and stress off your legs, and the position helps your spine, but you’re still doing running motions instead of biking motions, so your legs are getting a good workout, and you can go for longer

nerdy shit aside, iamgine how sick it must be to just let those feet fly into the air and do superman poses down a highway

Pictured above is Boudicca who fought a rebellion against the Romans in 61 AD during the Celtic period, which lasted from around 500 BC to 400 AD. Women in Celtic society were well respected.
They were independent and and there is plenty of evidence for female leaders and warriors during that time.They could own property and had basically had as much power as men did.
What the fuck happened in the next millennium or so is what I want to know

Fashions of the Future as Imagined in 1893

Illustrations from “Future Dictates of Fashion” by W. Cade Gall that was published in the January 1893 issue of The Strand magazine.

At first I thought this was some “fashion of witches and wizards through the ages” type thing but nah everyone is supposed to dress like this. I wish everyone dressed like this. 

nailed it

only 90’s kids will remember this

He could never have imagined the awesome society-altering power of jeans and t-shirts. We truly live a in the best of all possible worlds. 

Those are almost bell bottoms in 1978.

 faig ahmeds Embroidered Art 

When you think of traditional carpets from Azerbaijan, the thought of contemporary art does not quickly spring to mind… but these beautiful, and modern works will change that. Faiq Ahmed, a native of the Eurasian nation, has taken his countries old-school art form and brought it beautifully into the current era, deconstructing the ancient process of weaving and adapting it to todays contemporary art forms.

Slightly terrified right now that I am turning into my mother.  Like I just had one of those moments where I do everything myself cause nobody else does it right and then complain about how stressful my life is and nobody else does any work.  Mentally, of course.  And the sad thing is that it’s not true that nobody else does things right or that nobody else does any work.  I cannot wait for summer so at least the homework stress will be gone.

WHEN PEOPLE SAY YOU HAVE PRIVILEGE THEY ARE NOT SAYING THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS

THEY ARE SAYING YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS THAT COME FROM OPPRESSION

THIS IS NOT A DIFFICULT CONCEPT

Society often blurs the lines between drag queens and trans women. This is highly problematic, because many people believe that, like drag queens, trans women go home, take off their wigs and chest plates, and walk around as men. Trans womanhood is not a performance or costume.
