why is it called lukewarm
like why isn’t medium warm
who is luke
“luke” is derived from “lew” or “lewk” or “leuk”, in middle english, which meant “tepid” (slightly warm). this in turn came from the old english adverb “hlēowe”, which means “warm or sunny”. Finally, “hlēowe” came from the proto-germanic *hlēwaz, meaning “warm”. so basically when you say “lukewarm” you’re saying “warm-ish warm”
When a woman has scholarly inclinations there is generally something wrong with her sexual nature."
Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil (1886)
Just a friendly reminder that Nietzsche was rampantly sexist, regularly called women who didn’t submit to men “barbarous”, “charmless”, “mediocre”.
If you’re a woman with scholarly inclinations that lead you to adoring Nietzsche, just recall that he would have probably told you his age’s equivalent to “shut up, get back in the kitchen, and make me a sandwich”
it was incredibly difficult for me to get through ‘beyond good and evil’ for this reason. in the middle of talking about something really interesting, he just fucking decides ‘i haven’t interrupted this with a sexist rant in a while’ and talks about how women can’t do philosophy because of their docile nature or some shit
like he wasn’t even just casually misogynistic like most people in the 1800s. he actively made a point of pushing his misogyny every fucking chapter. what the fuck dude
In ecce homo he says that women who want equal rights are just infertile women who want to drag real/good women down, and he says that you can cure women by giving them babies.
And let’s keep in mind that he was not the only worshipped philosopher who thought this way. A good many of your ‘faves’ were misogynistic fuckbags.
Natasha Romanoff: S.H.I.E.L.D Agent, Russian Spy, Assassian, Matchmaker
Okay what I love most about this is Nat knows his neighbors.
(okay I love everything about this, especially Natasha continuing this conversation like they totally just didn’t jump out of a plane and murder/incapacitate twelve people, but we’ll focus on one thing in particular)
It’s really fueling my headcanon that Natasha just comes over and bothers Steve
when she’s bored sometimes. She just comes in through the window sometimes, picks the lock when Steve isn’t home and rearranges his furniture (“The harmony of the room was off-balance” “That is a load of bullshit” “Have you gone undercover as a New Age specialist? No? Shut up. Harmony”), replaces his healthy food with microwave dinners. Things like that. Natasha is a world-class troll.
But she has cased his neighbors. She’s watching his back, making sure he’s in a good neighborhood, that he’s got a safe space to come home to.
STEVE PROTECTS HER ON THE FRONT LINES, SHE PROTECTS HIM ON THE HOME FRONT
NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY
This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.
This article sounds like it was made by some guy who harasses people, got in trouble for it and now is butt-hurt so he made an article.
And this article was written by a woman…
whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal

Well, the first two words that pop into my head is “tuna” and “potato”, but I’m not sure those are what I’m gonna go with… Instead I’ll say Tardis apron, a birthday gift from two of my best friends, and Porrim, the wonderful feminist that she is. I went through most of Homestuck denying myself any desire I had to cosplay a troll because grey and then I fell for th troll showing the most skin.
Guys this picture is so important to me. Sometimes i back out of cosplaying a character because im worried people will judge me or shame me for doing it because im black. Im constantly worried people wont take my cosplays seriously because im just a black girl dressing up as iconic white characters. And sometimes that fear makes me feel like I shouldnt do it, like cosplaying isnt for me and I shouldnt go to cons.
But meeting this little girl made me understand how important it is to show my love for characters even if they arent my race. This little girl came up to me and asked for a picture at LexCon, and I almost cried. She came up to me the ONLY black Harley in a sea of perfectly “accurate” white Harleys. And I was so happy she did, and so happy I was there. Im glad I chose to cosplay a character I love, and to be there representing black cosplayers, because now this little girl might have a little bit more confidence in herself. Maybe my being there helped this little girl see that even girls like her can be geeky and cosplay whoever they want.
I really hope so. I know this made me feel more confident. And this is a picture im gonna treasure forever!
