Saved for when I’m on the computer

an artistic representation of white queers who try to obscure their whiteness with “polyamorous pansexual sex-positive kinky glittery genderqueer femme”
well polyamorous pansexual sex-positive kinky glittery genderqueer femmes do exist and I hardly think that has anything to do with “trying to obscure their whiteness”. Can we all just stop attacking people for the labels they choose to define themselves by?
That’s not what’s being attacked. It’s the mentality that a white queer person has when they talk about their oppression as being just as bad as a queer person of color’s when it isn’t, and then they try and justify it by listing all those things they are like “polyamorous pansexual sex-positive kinky glittery genderqueer femmes”
And people of color can identify as that too but w/e
Me, I just thought this was another example of white ppl cooking
swear to god, what else is there but white bread, white rice, potatoes, salt, sugar, and pepper?
and go easy on the pepper
but I also like the allegory above
Okay but what actually is happening in this photo
I believe that is, in fact, slices of un-toasted white bread with cake sprinkles on top.
…i’m sad because i thought this was white chocolate so it was like “feh” but not like pure evil
but omg this is pure evil
this is like that “woman of color” image that only had white people dressed in different color shirts
fuck off. Its called fairy bread and has nothing at all to do with the lgbtq spectrum or gay rights in any way. Its a snack for children’s parties. show some respect you motherfucking assholes, shit.
sorry, i have anger management and am having a really bad day, no offence intended.
after a while i became convinced that the words were mocking me
I WAS PROMISED A BATTLE
*throws down gauntlet*
Edit: Went back. This is the best thing to happen to my dashboard ever.
Reblogging again because my followers need to see this. To be clear, rebog, go to your actual blog, then click the picture.
THIS IS THE BEEEEEST
The spread of the black death.
Poland, tell us your secret.
If I remember correctly, Poland’s secret is that the jews where being blamed all over europe (as usual) as scapegoats for the black plague. Poland was the only place that accepted Jewish refugees, so pretty much all of them moved there.
Now, one of the major causes of getting the plague was poor hygiene. This proved very effective for the plague because everyone threw their poop into the streets because there were no sewers, and literally no one bathed because it was against their religion. Unless they were jewish, who actually bathed relatively often. When all the jews moved to Poland, they brought bathing with them, and so the plague had little effect there.
Milan survived by quarantining its city and burning down the house of anyone showing early symptoms, with the entire family inside it.
Also, this might have something to do with it: from what I understand, O blood type is uncommonly… common in Poland. Something to do with large families in small villages and a LOT of intermarriage. The black plague was caused by a bacterium that produced, in its waste in the human body, wastes that very closely mimic the “B” marker sugars on red blood cells that keep the body from attacking its own immune system. Anyone who has a B blood type had an immune system that was naturally desensitized to the presence of the bacterium, and therefore was more prone to developing the disease. Anyone who had an O type was doubly lucky because the O blood type means the total absence of ANY markers, A or B, meaning that their bodys’ immune system would react quickly and violently against the invaders, while someone with an A may show symptoms and recover more slowly, while someone with B would have just died. Because O is a recessive blood type, it shows in higher numbers when more people who carry the recessive genes marry other people who also carry the recessive gene. Poland, which has a nearly 700 year history of being conquered by or partnering with every other nation in the surrounding area, was primarily an agricultural country, focused around smaller, farming communities where people were legally tied to, and required to work, “their” land, and so historically never “spread” their genes across a large area. The economy was, and had been, unstable for a very long period of time leading up to the plague, the government had been ineffective and had very little reach in comparison to the armies of the other countries around for a very very long time, and so its people largely remained in small communities where multiple generations of cross-familial inbreeding could have allowed for this more recessive gene to show up more frequently. Thus, there could be a higher percentage of O blood types in any region of the country, guaranteeing less spread of the illness and moving slower when it did manage to travel. Combine this with the fact that there were very few large, urban centers where the disease would thrive, and with the above facts, and you’ve got a lovely recipe for avoiding the plague.
Interestingly enough, as a result from the plague, the entirety of Europe now has a higher percentage of people with O blood type than any other region of the world.
When Tumblr teaches you more about the plague than 12 years of school ever did.
Just to throw a nod in, as a medieval historian, this is all credible, and is the leading theory as to the plagues effectiveness at this point. So. Enjoy your new knowledge!
Things like this make me feel much less guilty about all my time spent on tumblr. Thank you!

This is a recent photograph and one where the school’s authorities have not taken action yet. Remember this kid’s name and repost this picture.
The Neanderthal trash who are bullying him deserve to have this picture plastered all over the Internet for prospective college admission offices to see so their career pinnacle can be asking me which kind of soup I want at Olive Garden.
