Who does our “representative democracy” truly represent?

I wonder how quickly our government would change if Congress was paid minimum wage.

So why are [people of color] not filling the ranks of the Anarchist movement? What it is that prevents those people of color that have been feeling the brunt of police brutality, and have been living off the scraps of what capitalism leaves behind, why have they not joined the movement?

The answer is simple: because is not their movement. It can never be their movement while it is being created by and for white middle-class kids with a Jesus complex who think they can save the world (or the ones with Buddha complex who think they can get wet by talking about water). You cannot hustle the movement and you cannot hustle the people. Revolution is not a game in which you can pretend to listen to the voice of the people of color only when is convenient and shut them off when they start questioning your privilege.

“Wrong Century” by Tomas Kucerovsky
the look of wistfulness on her face just punches me straight in the heart

this is literally my favorite piece that ever comes up on tumblr and if you want me to change my mind well then goOD LUCK WITH THAT

its amazing how full figured women went from being prized, since it meant that they probably werent going to die and they knew how to cook, and they probably were fertile which meant your last name would live on, to shamed. People are weird. 

Actually none of that stuff was true, people were also a lot smaller back then. The painting she’s wooing over needs some context. It’s called “The Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus” It depicts Castor and Pollux on horse back getting ready to abduct then rape Leucippus’ daughters, Phoebe and Hilaeira. This is probably not the picture she should be staring happily at. 

not that i ever play devil’s advocate when it comes to things relating to rape, but if we’re talking context i feel like i should put this out there. the Latin root of the word “rape” is raptus, which has a meaning closer to “seize or abduct”. it was not unmistakably in relation to a non-consensual sexual act (this article from the University of Idaho talks about the use of language in paintings like this, called “heroic abductions”). in fact, the usual Latin word for such things was stuprare which means “to violate or defile”. when it came to this kind of art or myth in the Renaissance and Baroque eras (“heroic abductions”) the word is also translated as abduction fairly often. 
so to say that this painting is definitely depicting rape and shouldn’t be admired isn’t reaaaally accurate. i mean granted she shouldn’t probably desire to be kidnapped, but that brings me to my next point.
the painting in question is by Peter Paul Rubens, from whose paintings we derived the description “Rubenesque” that is often used in reference to fuller-figured people. there are many examples in his work of women who look more like this, which was Rubens’ ideal of a beautiful woman. other artists of the time painted their ideal beauty, but the point is that there was a point in time that this body type was lusted after, and this girl longs for that time. 
this is Venus, Cupid, Bacchus, and Ceres, this is Venus and Adonis, this is The Hermit and the Sleeping Angelica, this is Venus at a Mirror. all women admired for their beauty, all not skinny. and three called Venus, the name we so often give the ideal female beauty.
perhaps this wasn’t the best painting to choose, but to discredit the message behind the comic because of the name of the painting seems dismissive. just sayin.

You ever notice how when they’re talking about the “Greatest Rapper/MCs,” they usually leave out a TON of the women who were geniuses in the game?

Many of the contributions from women seem to be regarded, by rap scholars and fans alike, as novelty. Or as mouthpieces/puppets for their male…
