A while ago I heard a version of this story where Athena has pity on Medusa and turns her into the gorgon to protect her from all men. A gift instead of a punishment for her brother’s crimes.
It always stuck with me, so here’s a doodle.
This has come up on my blog a few times, and I REALLY really am struck by how beautiful this is. so.. reblogging it to you guys. Isn’t it lovely?
Actual things that should be done with plantations
-burn them all to the ground
- sacred museums telling the actual history of slavery not glorifying the lives of slave owners
-genetic testing/ ancestry mapping sites for Black Americans
A huge moment in my life was when I first became acquainted with Cindy Sherman’s work
Apparently Lucy Lawless is gonna be on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. next season… I may have to start watching
I recently read an article that was basically like lessons the women’s movement can take from the gay rights movement. But I am not sure the same tactics can be used. Like much of the recent success (at least in gaining marraige rights in the US) has been due to whole “We’re just like you, only gay! We won’t destabilize your power stuctures!”. And that just would never work for women because the liberation of women is inherently destabilizing and everyone knows it.
Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
But these people are ‘for life’ and don’t want people do suffer. Fuck every one of these fuckholes. I hate them all.
