I don’t know how I lived life before knowing this.

THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING

Would you consider hieroglyphic tattoos a form of racism/culture appropriation? I keep getting mixed answers. Some say yes and then some say not racist but appropriative, some say no because it's a language, etc etc. Your two cents? New follower here and very fond of your blog already :)

thehereticpharaoh:

Not only cultural appropriation, but slight ignorance in Kemetic culture. Traditionally tattooing in Kemetic Antiquity was usually reserved for women, as shown on this Blue Faience Figurine:


Hieroglyphics were rarely used, it was mainly geometric patterns and designs. Kemet is generally accepted as the cradle of tattoo art, and by the Middle Kingdom tattoos seem to have been popular and culturally acceptable.

Several mummies have been recovered that date to as early as the XI Dynasty (2160-1994 B.C.E) that exhibit tattoo art forms. One of the most famous of those early mummies is that of Amunet, a priestess of the goddess Hathor, who was found at Thebes. This female mummy displayed several lines and dots tattooed about her body. The tattoo patterns and markings were still clearly visible on her flesh.

Female mummies with tattoos had been buried in an area associated with royal and elite burials.

Several other female mummies from this period show similar tattoos in addition to ornamental scarring (cicatrization) which is still popular today in some parts of Africa across the lower part of the abdomen. The series of dots and dashes held protective and fertility promoting significance. The lozenges are connected to the primal female power of the universe - motherhood.

The traditional reasons for tattooing include as a way to connect with the Divine, as a tribute or act of sacrifice to a deity, as a talisman, a permanent amulet that cannot be lost and to provide magical or medical protection.

The earliest known tattoo with a picture of something specific, rather than an abstract pattern, represents the god Bes. Bes is the lascivious god of revelry and he served as the patron god of dancing girls and musicians, a precursor in way to the Greek god Dionysus. Bes’s image appears as a tattoo on the thighs of dancers and musicians in many Egyptian paintings, and Bes tattoos have been found on female Nubian mummies dating from about 400 B.C.E.

The connection between tattoos and the divine existed in ancient Kemet.

HANDS!!! sorry for my bad hand writing

The point I’m trying to drive home, is that draw things the way that best suits you.  How-to-books had me all mixed up in my teen years, but then I decided to break the rules and do things my way.

THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING

This just made my brain light up in a good way.

OH MY FUCKING GOD

No, Super Dictionary. Batgirl is not, in fact, looking at the airplane. The airplane is behind her. You are confusing the shit out of kids everywhere, Super Dictionary.

I have to take issue with this. Super Dictionary does not say “Batgirl is looking at the airplane.” It says she looked at the airplane. Which she did, a few minutes ago. In this picture, she’s getting her thoughts together, because the airplane moment was pretty intense. Nothing special about the airplane really. Just something about being up on that high mountain ridge all by herself and then, ssssccchhhwwwwaaaaa, here comes a plane, not all loud like that but that sort of feeling you get when you think for a second about how fast those planes are going, ssssccchhhwwwwaaaaa, and then you look off into the distance and you think, jeez, so many lives being lived in that plane, unless it’s a cargo plane maybe, who knows, I’m going to just gaze up into this awesome sky a while and think about that plane I just saw, this mountain rules anyway

What is Batgirl even doing on that mountain. You are so far from gotham, girl.

Disgusting

Dude prolly had his receipts and the bag, and everything.

And he STILL GOT CUFFED

and people wonder why Black folks don’t trust any kinda system

No wait…

They stopped him and asked, “how a young Black man such as himself could afford to purchase such an expensive belt?” They KNEW he bought it. They just didn’t believe he used his own money. How could he, a young Black man, afford a $350 belt. Aren’t they all jobless and lazy?  He showed them the receipt. He even presented his ID and debit card. Security insisted it was all fake. Yes, even the receipt from their own cotdambed store. Because as we all know the only way Black people can have money is if we stole it from some innocent hard-working White person, right?

This is why racist stereotypes are harmful. Because they have real-life consequences for POC.

bolding for emphasis

if balling too hard is a crime then lock me up officer

cunicular:

Your first time is NOT supposed to hurt

You are NOT supposed to bleed

If you bleed, that is NOT your hymen being ‘popped’, it is a tear due to lack of sexual arousal and natural lubrication.

This is all a MYTH perpetrated by men so they don’t have to make sure you are comfortable and sufficiently aroused enough before you have sex with them. It is an excuse to disregard and hurt you.

I just really want women to know this.

men are not a hiveminded collective whose sole goal is to hurt all women

men believe this myth because they are told it, and don’t know anything about the vagina because they don’t have one??

i really want women AND men to know this

Yay! Feminist Anthropology time!

Prehistoric Cave Prints Show Most Early Artists Were Women

I added the emphasis in bold, but the “that” was already italicized in the article, and it’s probably my favorite part. I love this article, although I’m not a huge fan of the fact that it’s considered so incredibly shocking and radical to imagine that women possibly participated in society 40,000 years ago.

In other awesome feminist anthropology news: it is now somewhat accepted that the venus sculptures, rather than being depictions of female beauty by male artists, were self-portraits by women looking down at their own bodies. The paleolithic figurines lose their distorted proportions and acquire representational realism if we understand that they are self-portraits created by women looking down at their own bodies. 

See also: This quote by Sandy Toksvig

When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. ‘This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar’ she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’

It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions? How often had I sped past them as I learned of male achievement and men’s place in the history books? Then I read Rosalind Miles’s book The Women’s History of the World (recently republished as Who Cooked the Last Supper?) and I knew I needed to look again. History is full of fabulous females who have been systematically ignored, forgotten or simply written out of the records. They’re not all saints, they’re not all geniuses, but they do deserve remembering.

the willendorf sculpture and others like her were /the first selfies/ and its amazing

The paleolithic figurines lose their distorted proportions and acquire representational realism if we understand that they are self-portraits created by women looking down at their own bodies.

I really, really love this sentence.

if someone missed the reference

28 days is the duration of the menstrual cycle (the lunar cycle is 29 days, so don’t get them confused)
