WHY IS THIS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND

So for all you feminists out their who think that all men should die, remember, you are not a feminist.

reblogging for the last comment

Yes

Legit question, I’m not trying to hate on feminists or anything. Why is it called feminist if they’re for equality?

That’s a very good question and thank you for asking so politely. 

The word feminism was coined by Charles Fourier in 1837, a French philosopher who advocated for the emancipation of women because he believed society treated women as slaves. We weren’t allowed to vote, own anything, or work a real job. Women were ruled by their fathers/household patriarch until they married at which time they’d be under the rule of their husband. If a woman did not belong to male household she was shunned by society and had very little means to make money, most of them unsavory. You know the idiom “rule of thumb”? That comes from a running joke that started in the 1600s, and was still around in Fourier’s time, that said it was okay for a man to beat a woman with a stick as long as it wasn’t any thicker than his thumb. 

The point of the word feminist, and the feminist movement, has never been to say that women are better than men. The point is that women and things associated with women have been given a lesser place in society and we want to bring those things up to a place of equality. The focus is on the feminine because that’s what’s being pushed down. However, focusing on the feminine does not mean we’re focusing only women. Men are belittled and called “less of a man” anytime they portray a trait that is associated with femininity. If women and the feminine were equal to men and masculinity then that wouldn’t happen. Feminism is about raising up things associated with females to have an equal place in society as the things associated with males. It’s called feminism, not equalism, because the focus is on raising up not tearing down. Equalism would suggest that male things need to come down to a lower level so that female things can meet it in the middle. That’s not the point. The point is to raise up the feminine so that it’s on the same playing field that the masculine is already on. We don’t want men to lower themselves, we just want them to make room for us.

This needs to be spread far and wide to everyone on tumblr.

Babylonian era problems. (photo via tbc34)

old school hate mail

Imagine how pissed you have to be to engrave a rock

Ok but there was this guy called Ea-nasir who was a total crook and would actually cheat people ought of good copper and sell them shit instead.
The amount of correspondences complaining to and about this guy are HILARIOUS.

Are you telling me we know about a specific guy who lived 5000 years ago, by name, because he was a huge asshole

More like 4000 years ago but yes. Ea-nasir and his dodgy business deals.

And we haven’t even touched on the true hilarity of the situation yet. Consider two additional facts:

  • He wasn’t just into copper trading. There are letters complaining about Ea-nasir’s business practices with respect to everything from kitchenwares to real estate speculation to second-hand clothing. The guy was everywhere.
  • The majority of the surviving correspondences regarding Ea-nasir were recovered from one particular room in a building that is believed to have been Ea-nasir’s own house.

Like, these are clay tablets. They’re bulky, fragile, and difficult to store. They typically weren’t kept long-term unless they contained financial records or other vital information (which is why we have huge reams of financial data about ancient Babylon in spite of how little we know about the actual culture: most of the surviving tablets are commercial inventories, bills of sale, etc.).

But this guy, this Ea-nasir, he kept all of his angry letters - hundreds of them - and meticulously filed and preserved them in a dedicated room in his house. What kind of guy does that?

every time this post comes across my dash (which is often) it has even more cool info attached to it

This is an awesome story but I always get twitchy about the whole “carved into rock” bit. This wasn’t carved it was stamped into clay with a little stylus.

Resin inlaid chestnut shelves

var imagebase='file://D:/Program Files (x86)/FeedReader/'; Resin inlaid chestnut shelves (19 Pics) 13:13 11.08.2014, Maxx, World Of Technology Big old cracked, knotholed, spalted piece of chestnut we got cheap from the timber yard. Time to tidy it up and make it good to go on the wall.
Sealing the holes with aluminium tape.
Set it somewhere good and level otherwise the resin will be a mess.
Ready to mix
Bag of pigment. Traditionally resin inlay is colour-matched to the wood, but I'm going down a different path.
Resin mixed up and standing a little to let the bubbles bubble out. Told you this wasn't a traditional inlay.
Poured into the big crack.
Doing a bit of a Clever with this edge.
Awwww yeah. This is going to look amazing. Now only the long, long job of planing, carding and sanding this lot flat.
Getting there.
The first coat of oil.They got about eight thin coats of boiled linseed oil.
Chopped up and ready for the wall.
Brackets installed.
Some spare bits of walnut for the other brackets.
And here they are. In daylight.
Later in the day, as it's getting darker, the glow resin really starts to come into its own.
It's on the bottom of the top shelf, so it's visible in normal use.
Wall robot approves.
Another angle. Now we just need some jars of pickles and stuff to fill these up with.

Yep. Human zoos were a thing. Not only in America, but in a lot of countries in Europe. Matter of fact, it was Europe that started the terrible exhibits back in the 1800s, then New York started having the “zoos” in the 20th century. Over 28 million white people would go to these “zoos” to see hundreds of black and indigenous people as a “major attraction”. 

People who suffered in these zoos might still be alive today. Do not let this be lost in history.

This is absolutely horrifying, and to make it even worse, this is the first time I’ve even heard of it. The levels of sugarcoating and erasure of racism in our history books is staggering.
