30 Days of Doctor Who - Day 5: What’s your favorite episode?
"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant." - Eleventh Doctor, “Vincent and the Doctor”
Is this a bit of a repeat of my favorite historical appearance? Yes. But besides the fact that I love Vincent Van Gogh and that in the Whoniverse, the Doctor got to show him what his art means to the world, I just love that quote. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but the bad things don’t always spoil the good things. It has really helped me get through a lot. This episode means so much to me for so many reasons, and I cry every time.

STOP TELLING WOMEN TO STOP TAKING NUDES!
STOP TRYING TO CONTROL WOMEN’S BODIES/WHAT THEY DO WITH IT.
START TELLING MEN TO RESPECT WOMEN AND HOW THEY CHOOSE TO DISPLAY THEIR BODY IN THEIR PRIVATE AND/OR PUBLIC LIFE.
START TELLING MEN TO RESPECT BOUNDARIES.
DONT TELL US NOT TO LOCK OUR HOUSES
TELL ROBBERS NOT TO TAKE OUR STUFF
DONT TELL US NOT TO JUMP OFF CLIFFS
TELL THE GROUND TO STOP BEING SO HARD
I am pretty sure that if a robber takes our stuff he goes to jail. I can’t say the same for rapists.
Rapists get to parade around school while their victims have to move or fail their classes. Rapists keep living while their victims die inside. Rapists might get a little told off while their victims gets blamed for simply existing on a daily basis. They might go to jail… but really…. we live in a rape culture that does not blame rapists for their actions.
If you jump of a cliff, you jumped of a cliff. (Rape victims don’t rape themselves, NO LOGIC AT ALL with that comparison). Also, the ground is not alive, it doesn’t think. Men do, men should. Men can stop rape.
(ps: not only men rape and not only women are rape victims… )
A new study of five wax tablets from the Second Century, found in the Albanian city of Durres, offers fascinating insights into the role of women in ancient Illyrian culture.
When Albanian archeologist Fatos Tartari excavated the ancient necropolis of Durres in 1979, he came across a…
After being revealed as a fraud and an all-around deceitful person, enquiring users wanted to know if there were blogs that spoke about people of color in history other than Medievalpoc. Of course! So I made, a list of non-Medievalpoc blogs.

When the Nazi concentration camps were liberated by the Allies, it was a time of great jubilation for the tens of thousands of people incarcerated in them. But an often forgotten fact of this time is that prisoners who happened to be wearing the pink triangle (the Nazis’ way of marking and identifying homosexuals) were forced to serve out the rest of their sentence. This was due to a part of German law simply known as “Paragraph 175” which criminalized homosexuality. The law wasn’t repealed until 1969.
This should be required learning, internationally.
You need to know this. You need to remember this. This is not something to swept under the carpet nor be forgotten.
Never. Too many have died for the way they have loved. That needs stop now.
Make it stop?
I did a report on this in my World History class my sophomore year of high school. It was incredibly unsettling.
My teacher shown the class this. Mostly everyone in the class felt uncomfortable.
I have reblogged this in the past, but it is so ironic that it comes across my dash right now. I a currently working as a docent at my city’s Holocaust Education Center (( I say currently because I’ve also done research and translation for them )) and our current exhibit is one on loan from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum ((USHMM)). This is a little known historical fact that Paragraph 175 was not repealed after the war and those convicted under Nazi laws as a danger to society because they were gay were not released because they had be convicted in a court of law. There was no liberation or justice for them as they weren’t considered criminals, or even victims for that matter. They were criminals who remained persecuted and ostracized and kept on the fringes of society for decades after the war had been won. Paragraph 175 wasn’t actually repealed until 1994. And it was only in May 2002, that the German parliament completed legislation to pardon all homosexuals convicted under Paragraph 175 during the Nazi era. History has forgotten about these men and women — please educate yourselves so this does not happen again. Remember this history. Remember them.
You must remember this!!!
Go watch the documentary “Paragraph 175”, where 5 of the survivors who were still alive in 2000 were interviewed.

If you defend a guy for his nudes getting leaked (“aw it’s okay we still love you1!1!1!!!”) but then shame a girl for her nudes getting leaked (“what a slut she shouldn’t have taken them in the first place!!1!1!!!”) I hope you step on many lego pieces at once.
