Illustrator Lili Chin's adorable series Dogs of the World illustrates 192 breeds of dogs grouped according to geographical origin.
I WAS REALLY SAD BECAUSE I THOUGHT THEY’D MISSED BERNESE MOUNTAIN DOG BUT THEN THERE IT IS OH MY GOSH YOU’RE SUCH A CUTIE!!!!!
Dear forgotten deity of ‘unintentional’ queer subtext and the most sacred inertia that silences bland het romance before it can have the last word…you who erode the mountaintops from which the enemy has hurled the boulders of canonicity and triggered avalanches of bisexual erasure to bury the modest valleys in which we gather in our hope and our hunger and our weariness since time immemorial…you who level the uneven terrain in canon’s wake so detractors have but sand to stand upon when they try to invalidate our queer ships…you who have given us these peaceful, relatively respected spaces where we can survive until the promised day arrives and heteronormativity is struck down once and for all, and queer relationships reign over fictional media with kindness and diverse, quality representation for all…I call upon you to hear my prayer in these final days before the last season of Korra airs:
Stay the writers’ hands. Keep Makorra and Asamako sunk in the coldest, darkest, deepest of ocean trenches that they belong in, where strange creatures yet unknown to us slowly claim those wrecks as their homes and the waters drown their powers of lame heteronormativity and insipid love triangle tension forever…so that Korrasami may ascend, triumphant through the omission of canon endgame het and resplendent with yet more screen time devoted to developing Korra and Asami’s relationship….
A Selk’nam couple with their baby, on a ship en route to be exhibited in Europe as “wildmen”. The Selk’nam people are an indigenous tribe in the Patagonian region of Southern Argentina and Chile. Both appear to have slight damage on their ankles from cruel, probably iron, restraints.
The fear and confusion on their face is haunting. For people who had lived a simple hunting and gathering lifestyle, with little European interaction, the rest of their lives must’ve seemed like a surreal nightmare.
Abducted by aliens.
I really want to know who these people are/what happened to them
SO I DID A BIT OF DIGGING AND HOLY SHIT. THE SELK’HAM PEOPLE WERE WIPED OUT IN A MASS GENOCIDE.
LIKE… THEY ARE NO MORE. THE DESCENDENTS OF THIS COUPLE DO NOT EXIST.
AN ENTIRE LANGUAGE. AN ENTIRE CUISINE. AN ENTIRE WAY OF LIFE. WIPED AWAY.
YA’LL WANT SOME FUCKING WHITE HISTORY MONTH? HERE IS SOME GOD DAMN WHITE HISTORY FOR YOU TO PUT NEXT TO ALL THOSE SHINNY IMAGES OF THESE WHITE MEN WHO “DISCOVERED THE WORLD”.
HANG THIS IMAGE IN ALL THE DAMN CLASSROOMS. I’M DONE.
But “NOT ALL WHITE PEOPLE”, right?

This has always been one of my favorite shots. So cozy and domestic uwu
Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.
Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.
Rev Sekou kneeled between protesters and police and prayed, then was thrown into a police vehicle with blood smears all inside of it.
