practical uses for men
straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bys, pretty much anywhere.
the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.
girls who can run in heels should be feared
girls who can do the kolo in heels should be feared

White Heterosexuals in Love
Coming to theatres next spring, a love story that is vaguely forbidden between two kind of sarcastic, innocent cisgender people who grew up in middle class american families.
Based on a book featuring White People Almost Kissing
There have been some inquiries as to where the Once Upon A Time recaps have gone. This post is meant to answer those inquiries and address something that I believe is of grave concern to our community, a terrible disease lurking in the bones of many a piece of media. Yes, my dear friends, I speak of queerbaiting.
While this essay is rooted in the TV show Once Upon A Time, it’s actually one of the best things about queerbaiting I’ve ever read. We have not seen Mulan, the bisexual character a single time in the year since she was revealed to be bi. That is not representation.
It also contains this brilliant metaphor:
It’s sort of like showing up to Thanksgiving having said you’d bring green bean casserole, except you brought a single green bean on a paper plate. Even though this will obviously not feed any of the other guests and barely counts as a green bean casserole, you sneer at those who are protesting, telling them that they never specified what a green bean casserole is and besides that, they’re being whiny babies. You wave the single limp green bean in the air and tell them that it’s obvious they’ll never be happy, that they’re complaining for the sake of complaining and that it’s no wonder they don’t get to eat quality green bean casserole because nobody wants to share green bean casserole with such an aggressive and unfriendly group. In other words, making a character bisexual only to immediately write them out of the show makes me feel like shoving a green bean up someone’s nose.
Go read the whole thing.
Pisanki are intricately decorated Easter eggs which have been part of the Slavic tradition for centuries. The oldest example of a pisanka in the Polish region was found in Ostrówek and is believed to be 900 years old. Even prior to the arrival of Christianity, the egg had long been a symbol of fertility and spring, which brings new life into the world. In the context of Christianity, the Easter egg became synonymous with the hope and faith in Jesus Christ through his resurrection.
Pisanki are decorated through different means, and various techniques have been employed throughout the Slavic tradition. The oldest examples had been covered in wax which was then carved to create a design, and later dipped in a dye made from onion peels. Different modes of decoration have yielded a variety of Easter egg art. Beets, flower petals, oak bark, and rye are employed to create colors when making kraszanki. Drapanki are decorated through careful etching into the the surface of a dyed egg shell, and pisanki are artfully hand-painted into various Slavic motifs. Creating naklejanki involves gluing scraps of paper, flower petals, and other decorative materials to the eggshell, while oklejanki are adorned with bulrush pith or yarn. Probably the most intricate and time-consuming are pisanki ażurowe, or wydmuszki. Raw eggs are emptied of their contents through a carefully created opening, while preserving the shape of the egg. The shell is then decorated by drilling very small holes in the surface to create a lace-like look.
In the past pisanki were strictly a tradition cultivated by women, and men were not allowed inside the house during the process as it was believed they had the power to cast a spell on the eggs and cause bad luck.
