I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.

might be the rawest pic I ever seen. and he got a bag of chips in his hand

THIS IS SO FUCKING METAL

With his dreads and his american flag shirt, this is everything

I want this to be one of those photos that lasts forever you know

This photo is gonna go down in history its fuckin unbelievably powerful

Flobots gonna have some new lyrics.

according to the protester’s twitter account, he was throwing it away from children being gassed, not at the cops

on the far left of the picture, you can see a small figure (possibly two) wearing what looks like dark jeans and a black tee with a white long-sleeved shirt underneath; the white sleeve is clearly visible at child-size, child-height, the curb they’re standing on it’s far enough away for that to be an adult body

this is fucking important to know, especially given how the cops/media are twisting and misrepresenting the protesters’ actions as ‘violence’

The more I learn about this fellow, the more of a hero he becomes.

Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.

((On a side note, this gives me a COMPLETELY different outlook on Virgos (My sun sign) sign they often refer to us as the “virgins”))
