Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

This is absolutely strength and skill and it’s quite amazing. But I’m also super-uncomfortable with the implication that the stigmatization of its origins is *okay*, that it’s *better* now that it’s suddenly “clean”, and that the women who developed it should be erased/removed from its context. They made it. They deserve to keep being acknowledged for it. This is how women’s contributions get erased from history: because they’re the wrong kind of women, because they’re too sexy, because they’re from the wrong classes/ranks. Etc. Etc. So let’s not do that.

Sex workers are human beings…. from cam models to strippers to porn stars. It may not be your cup o’ tea (mmm, tea), but it doesn’t give you the right to disrespect or shame them. 

Reblogging this again because people think that just because someone is a sex worker, means that they are not intelligent, can’t have normal lives, and treat them like complete shit.

no, no, i’m not laughing at you, i’m just laughing at how you quote malvolio and polonius unironically

I know a young lady with Malvolio’s famous line tattooed on her shoulder. I haven’t the guts to tell her.
 Even if you ignore any potential innuendo, that line still exists only to screw with Malvolio’s head, and is the opposite of a nice little feel-goody quote.

I heard that quote for years and the first time I read the play I was shocked.
People do that all the time. On the building I work in, there’s a lovely quote about protecting the environment. Unfortunately, if you look it up, in context it says, “Wait a minute before you destroy everything” NOT “protect it.”

My college Shakespeare prof used to say “Shakespeare did not say ‘to thine own self be true,’ Polonius said it.  And Polonius is an idiot.”

"Long distance relationships have their own sense of beauty. That someone can wait days, months, or even years for someone they love who are miles or oceans away. That someone can fall deeply in love with someone and love all the moments that are shared. It doesn’t matter if someone is miles or oceans away; being loved by someone’s fullest is something so beautiful and raw."

"If I’m entirely honest,
and you say I must be
I want to stay with you all afternoon evening, night and tomorrow
pressed into you so tightly that we don’t know whose belly made what sound, whose heart it is that is thumping like that
until I don’t know if the sweat on my chest is yours or mine or ours."

Science Penguin [x]

i enjoy that every single human’s reaction to penguin is unrestrained delight

And penguins lack large terrestrial predators, so their reaction to humans tends to be, “HELLO STRANGE GIANT PENGUINS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? DO YOU HAVE ANY FISH?”

SO HAPPY TO SEE SCIENCE PENGUIN ON MY DASH.
