I just reblogged this with the command, shit
I’m under the impression that there’s a lot of misunderstanding among gay and lesbian people on tumblr about what bisexual and other multisexual people are trying to achieve within the LGBTQ+ community. I can obviosuly only speak for myself so feel free to add/correct me, but…
I don’t really know what kind of history books bigots like you read.
The Great Libraries of Timbuktu? The steel metallurgy of the Haya? Dentistry? Caesarean section? Premature neonatal care? Mathematics, architecture, engineering?
I know it’s hard for a racist like you who imagines “technological advancement” to be some kind of end-all-be-all, or proof of some “inherent intelligence”. I know, I know. It’s hard to imagine, but Europeans have been drawing knowledge from everyone around them since the dawn of time. What did you think ended the Dark Ages?
Your magical (read: white supremacist) idea of a purely 'white' Rome never existed.
The Minoan culture on the island of Crete between 1500-1700 B.C.E. had a highly developed waste management system. They had very advanced plumbing and designed places to dispose of organic wastes. Knossos, the capital city, had a central courtyard with baths that were filled and emptied using terra-cotta pipes. This piping system is similar to techniques used today. They had large sewers built of stone.”
In case you needed further clarification, neither the Minoans nor other (later) Greeks were ethnically uniform. They also had the first flush toilets, dating back to 18th century B.C.E. They had flushing toilets, with wooden seats and an overhead reservoir. The Minoan royals were the last group to use flushing toilets until the re-development of that technology in 1596.
Oh, and look the Mayans had indoor plumbing, acqueducts, and pressurized water too. I mean, you can ignore that the area Mayans lived in had little to few rivers, no lakes or standing water, nor other sources of running water, while simultaneously dealing with monsoons and flooding due to one of the heaviest yearly rainfalls in the Americas.
Classic Maya even used household water filters using locally abundant limestone carved into a porous cylinder, made so as to work in a manner strikingly similar to modern ceramic water filters.
Of course, by this time millenia later none of your precious “white people” had developed any methods besides shitting in pots.Continuing, the earliest archaeological record of an advanced system of drainage comes from the Indus Valley Civilization from around 3100 B.C.E in what is now Pakistan and North India. By 2500 B.C.E (almost 5,000 years ago), highly developed drainage system where wastewater from each house flowed into the main drain.All houses in the major cities of Harappa and Mohenjo−daro had access to water and drainage facilities. Waste water was directed to covered drains which lined the major streets directed to covered drains, which lined the major streets. Each home had its own private drinking well and its own private bathroom. The mains that carried wastewater to a cesspit were tall enough for people to walk through. Reservoirs, a central drainage system, fresh water pumped into the homes. Pools. Baths.It was made from bricks smoothened and joined together seamlessly. The expert masonry kept the sewer watertight. Drops at regular intervals acted like an automatic cleaning device.
Filters for solid waste.Sorry, what were the British doing up until like, 200 years ago? Shitting in the streets? Oh yeah.I mean, I could get into how by the Shang Dynasty (roughly 1600 B.C.E.), China had sophisticated plumbing including pressure inverted siphons.
Or into the city of Amarna, Ancient Egypt. Or Persepolis, Persia and the Achaemenids in 600 B.C.E.But, I mean, it sounds like the only one still in the Bronze Age is you.
This is the best and most comprehensive toilet-related smackdown I’ve ever had the good fortune to witness.
Just because it sells doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
I didn’t mention anything about quality, only sales figures.
This is fantastic. I love it. There are guys out there who are so threatened by the prospect of a female-led title doing well that when it does do well their response is “well it’s probably not any good.”
I almost just did a spit take because the first linked review is mine.
I have to point out something that I love here. This initial post stated a fact, and then some angry nerd boy who didn’t know anything about the subject, came in and started talking crap. Now he didn’t say “I didn’t care for it,” he didn’t say “I’ve heard bad thing,” no, he just flat out said “that doesn’t mean its good,” meaning he didn’t even read it or listen to what anyone had to say on it. So what we have here was an angry jerk who just flat out started talking about a comic that he hadn’t even read, only to then have him smacked right down by a lady who actually had read the subject.and had facts to back her up.
This is what I’ve observed in the comic community for years and everyone needs to know it. Most of those people who talk crap, who try to bring down your fun, who try to question your “geekery” are people who have no idea what they’re talking about. The people who try to tell you that your’e a “fake geek” are the real fakers, they’re the people who don’t read squat and just sit around judging others who do. Do not listen to them, do not think they’re smart or qualified to talk about a subject more than you are, do not give them any kind of power because end of the day someone who tries to take the positivity out of a hobby or fandom or whatever you want to call it, those are the people who shouldn’t be into it in the first place.
(And Ms Marvel was amazing too)
#can we talk about this #just for a second #can we talk about how this show took valuable time out of its short episodes to throw in little moments like this #moments that humanized ”the enemy” #and showed the war from a different perspective #and made the audience stop and realize the Fire Nation wasn’t inherently evil #like we were at first led to believe #*sighs* idk what i’m saying #I still get really really emotional about A:TLA (via equalistmako)

the only reason your art looks awful to you is because you had an image in your head and the art you created doesnt match it
other people have no image, so when presented with the art you created, they’re usually pretty impressed, because wow you made that out of nothing!! its…
This is why unless if I am comicking I try not to be to specific with the details of what I am drawing.

Autism isn’t something a person has, or a “shell” that a person is trapped inside. There’s no normal child hidden behind the autism. Autism is a way of being. It is pervasive; it colors every experience, every sensation, perception, thought, emotion, and encounter, every aspect of existence. It is not possible to separate the autism from the person—and if it were possible, the person you’d have left would not be the same person you started with.
This is important, so take a moment to consider it: Autism is a way of being. It is not possible to separate the person from the autism.
Therefore, when parents say,
I wish my child did not have autism,
what they’re really saying is,
I wish the autistic child I have did not exist, and I had a different (non-autistic) child instead.
Read that again. This is what we hear when you mourn over our existence. This is what we hear when you pray for a cure. This is what we know, when you tell us of your fondest hopes and dreams for us: that your greatest wish is that one day we will cease to be, and strangers you can love will move in behind our faces.” — Jim Sinclair, “Don’t Mourn For Us” x (via andrandiriel)
