FANTASTERRIFIC QUEER CANADIAN MERMAID ON FIRE
Eh? Archive Submit

We are outraged when an Indian police officer tells a rape victim she should marry her attacker but not when a California judge says a woman wasn’t really raped because she didn’t put up enough of a fight. We are outraged at 24,000 rapes in India but not 188,380 in America.

Hoopstatic - First World Problems

I really recommend reading the entire article. Trigger warning for discussion of rape and rape culture - it’s a tough article but very important.

"Mother Gothel’s design makes me uncomfortable. Her dark, thick, curly hair, her sharp nose, and the way her features are generally perceived as more "ethnic" in comparison to all the other human characters in Tangled—it all reminds me of an archetype for Jewish women"

Interesting fact: The stereotypical witch found in fairy tales was usually portrayed as the stereotypical Jew in order to spread anti Semitic propaganda.
This is also where we get the “greedy Jew” stereotype, as goblins, hobgoblins, gnomes and dwarves were also portrayed as the harmful Jewish archetype.
In the middle ages, it was a sin for a Christian to hoard or handle large amounts of money, which left the profitable banking industry open to Jews. It’s ridiculous that Christians created the stereotype to avoid a sin, and this stereotype is still portrayed and spread today

I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THIS FOR MONTHS especially since if mother gothel looks like a nazi propaganda-esque jewish woman, and she steals the most aryan-looking baby in the kingdom to use its essence in a ceremony…
like does that smell like blood libel or am i paranoid

RELEVANT

glegrumbles, is this pretty much the summary of whatever sources you were going to pull out on the matter of stereotypical witch appearances being derived from anti-Semitic stereotypes?

Sort of. It touches a bit on some of it, but it goes preeeeetty damn deep. And it’s very frustrating to try to track down scholarly resources on it because it does tend to get shoved under the rug. I was having a conversation with some friends and thetwistedrope about it, trying to gather up what I can find.But there’s a lot of folkloric racism and Othering. In fairy tales, in folklore about supernatural things and witches. Jewish people were heavily associated with magic, but there was a lot of… well, “let’s take their neat stuff but also we still don’t like these people and will oppress them” stuff that happened. (Look at all the historical Western Tradition magic that draws on Jewish ideas and culture, but continued to have no problem shitting on Jewish people and culture as a whole.) A lot of people don’t know the coded things they’re looking at, just like they miss references to other racist things in society and popular culture.And being blissfully ignorant and perpetuating this stuff, I shouldn’t even have to say, is not in any way, shape, or form a good or ok thing. Most especially because anti-semitism is visibly on the rise. It’s not a blast from the old-timey past that is interesting but not relevant anymore. It’s still very much relevant today, not just in Europe but all over the place, including in the USA and Canada.And one thing I’ve noticed, since starting to track this: it doesn’t get talked about. People who reblog stuff about anti-semitism and anti-semitic crimes tend to be… pretty much only Jewish community members, and other SJ blogs ignore it. Posting gets you crickets. (And I’m guilty of this as well, not reblogging some of the stuff that goes past on my dash. This is something I need to change.)Other links:The Past Didn’t Go Anywhere - Making Resistance to Anti-Semitism Part of All of Our MovementsCoordination Forum for Countering Antisemitism - includes news stories and also a worldwide map of anti-semitic acts year by year, consistently updated.So… yes. This is an issue I am very much paying attention to.

copperbadge:

Any chance of the recipe?

Sure! The basic recipe is here. Just substitute 1 cup of rye flour for one of the cups of bread flour. If you don’t want miso bread, you can take out the miso and use 2 tsp of yeast in its place, in addition to the yeast the recipe already calls for.

The original non-miso recipe makes a slightly more cohesive dough and thus a “higher” loaf, but the crumb’s not as good.

WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

DUDE THATS A BABY KAIJU

pew, pew!

SCIENCE SIDE OF TUMBLR URGENT

YOU CALLED!?
This fish is not actually spitting bioluminescent spit…it’s spitting out its bioluminescent food! Some clever scientist has put some bioluminescent ostracods in a tank with some little fish. When agitated, these ostracods (tiny shirmpthings) secrete chemicals that, when combined, emit light.
Why?
You’re seeing why right here. Just before the fish spits it out, those light chemicals are filling up the belly of the fish. Now, it isn’t poisonous or anything…but the fish wants NOTHING TO DO WITH IT because the fish has predators too. 
So yeah, if you’re a little fish and suddenly you’re FREAKING GLOWING, your lifespan has just gotten a lot shorter. 
As soon as the fish realizes that there’s light emanating from its belly, it pukes out the glowing juices (and the little shrimp). You can actually see the ostracod in this gif swimming away down toward the bottom of the tank happy as a clam…or a shrimp. 
Evolution is AWESOME.

hailtherandom asked, "Sometimes Steve feels pretty worn out and exhausted by being Captain America all the time and he tries not to let it show but sometimes it comes out, so Pepper notices and tells Tony about it, and the two of them find Steve one night and gently take him back to their room and Pepper works out all the kinks in Steve's shoulders while Tony slowly works his way down Steve's chest, pressing kisses along each line of muscle and rib down to his hips. Then he and Pepper switch, so Steve can lean back"

against Tony while Pepper straddles his hips and kisses him really easily, really lazily, for long enough that Steve starts to release all the tension he carries in him all the time and slumps back against Tony. When Steve finally relaxes, Pepper shuffles up on her knees and guides Steve’s dick into her so she can ride him, and Tony nudges Steve’s head to the side so he can lick and bite at the tendons in his neck and they work other in such perfect tandem that Steve falls apart between them.

hailtherandom asked, "So Steve's getting slightly worried about how much time Tony is spending in the lab, so he goes down after Tony's been working for pretty much two days straight, and once he's sure that he's not going to accidentally blow him up, Steve shoves Tony against one of his worktables and pins both of Tony's hands behind him and knocks Tony's feet apart with his and shoves one hand roughly down the front of his jeans and Tony comes apart in his grip almost immediately because he'd been holding so much"

tension in his body and it takes almost no time at all for him to come, covering Steve’s hand and a bit of his underwear and then he slumps back against the table and Steve tugs his hand out in time to catch him and help Tony to the elevator so that he can collapse back in his room instead of on the floor of the lab.

post-and-out asked, "Bucky feels almost bad about how much he likes the embarrassed way Steve shakes when he really takes his time. It doesn't feel mean, but the stunned look Steve gives him every time Bucky won't turn the lights out makes something warm shiver through the core of him. It makes him that much more determined to touch every inch of skin, and twice where it stretches thin over Steve's too prominent collarbones and ribs. (He doesn't know in 70 years Steve will do the same. It wouldn't change anything.)"

Oh… … …

Oh.

fira211 asked, "... Coulson rubbing aloe lotion onto Clint's sunburned ass. EXCUSE ME I'LL BE IN THE CORNER."

veteratorianvillainy:

I will likely never get over this. This is the scenario I will carry across aus. It may have started in the au with nude beach lifeguard Phil Coulson, but I forever need Coulson lovingly rubbing aloe into Clint’s skin, blowing gently until Clint’s covered in goosebumps, lightly kisses the freckles left behind once the burn heals.

So happy to be of headporn assistance.
