Chris is having a Chris crisis. A Chrisis.
ALSO FIFTY SHADES OF GREY PERPETUATES THE MYTH THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE INTO BDSM/KINK HAVE TROUBLED CHILDHOODS OR SOMETHING ‘WRONG’ WITH THEM and that is another reason I hate it.
kamikaze-nazi asked: I always see people messaging you saying "but what about Hamas" .. Hamas gained power in like what, 2007? This conflict was going on for yeaaaars before that. Also, if you oppress a whole nation of people what the fuck do you expect? Obviously they're going to fight back. Israel attacks them and them blames them for fighting back? What do they expect them to do, sit silently while their families and friends and neighbours get murdered?
I concur. I was just writing this in a reply to the last Zionist dude who sent another message (I gave up because my head feels numb and it’s 4.30am here) - Israel had been attacking Palestinians for over 50 years before Hamas launched its first rocket. The difference now is that Israel has a scapegoat for everything.
Bomb schools? Blame Hamas!
Carry out massacres? Blame Hamas!
Attack ambulances? Hamas!
Hospitals too? Hamas Hamas Hamas!
By the way you might be interested in a clip I watched several days ago of Abby Martin talking to Alison Weir (founder of If Americans Knew). They covered this exact topic and it’s about 13 minutes long. Make yourself a cup o’ tea and watch it here.
COMING SOON: A Somewhat Limited History of the Race of Men (Better Title Pending)
I didn’t have time to write any posts last night, so I figured instead I’d give you a very tiny preview of the next downloadable guide I’m working on. Much of the history of race of men - most especially anything that doesn’t concern the Numenoreans or their descendants - is hard to study. Mainly because the details are spread out and hidden among various other texts and sources. So I wanted to create a guide that would collect a lot of this information together in one place. I’m planning on focusing on:
- Linguistic history (which groups spoke which languages, etc.)
- Migration patterns (which groups lived where and when)
- Ethnicity and appearance (I’d say it’s high time we pointed out the various non-pasty-white cultural groups, yes?)
The above chart is a small taste of the prep-work going in to this - a map of the various groups formed over the ages from those men who escaped Morgoth’s control early on (basically, all the groups somehow related to the Edain.) I’m still in the process of making similar maps for all the other men (our lovely Easterlings, Haradrim, etc etc), and of course the hobbits.
…so, anyway, sorry for no “real” post this morning - but enjoy the chart!
Not exactly applicable for this week’s chapters, but handy for later on!
THIS IS VERY HELPFUL!
I love Tolkien but I often get very confused and overwhelmed reading him.
Pro-Israel goon in Boston threatened a Palestinian woman with rape at Tuesday’s protest. Make sure to ID this guy, and please stay safe everyone. The irony of Zionists: Wearing a shirt that says peace while you threaten to rape someone.
Please reblog. We can do this.
I won a thing!!!!
