me most of the time: patriotism is just another way of saying “xenophobia and nationalism”
me when non-americans make fun of america: okay but wtf has your country done again? leave your comments in the ballot box i’m ringing this liberty bell
My brother sent me a picture of a few young girls protesting outside of Party City in Harlem, today. They want Princess Tiana back.
Amazing! “Kids don’t see racial differences.” “Tiana is available online only” You go girls!!!
"Representation doesn’t matter."
"Kids don’t see race."
These girls just proved you all wrong.
Q:Hi Vees! What are some fics you really like that aren't on your rec list, rec tag or AO3 bookmarks? Any fandom, just fics you think are neat and would recommend!
Oh god, wait. Does that mean you’ve read everything in my AO3 bookmarks? Holy shit, that’s commitment, there.
I generally keep most of my casual recs in said bookmarks, though. Like you’ve run through my stockpile.
I’ll go check me recent reading history and see what I can rec for you form there, though, hang on.
- A Lot of Blood Homestuck, genfic, blood/gore
- Eight Days a Week (I Love You), Free!, Reigisa, “pretend to date for a week (and then fall in love)” style fic. Probably will do a formal rec soon enough, since I’ve read it three times now.
- Before I Sleep Homestuck, background ships, Petstuck AU. SO MUCH SADNESS DO NOT ACTUALLY READ THIS IT IS SO SAD
- You Always Knew Free!, Reigisa. I want you to read that coy ass summary and then tell yourself firmly that it is NOT what you are thinking and you did not, in fact, always know.
- Crawling Towards Eternity Homestuck, Condy♥Psii. Hells of noncon. I mean have you met the Condesce?
- ………………………………….what the fuck is that. i didnt read that. how did it get there. this isnt like some self-effacing hahaha look how bad my taste is thing. i genuinely did not read that fic. how would i even have navigated to it? i’m not in that fandom, that isn’t my ship, what the fuck. what the fUCK? no heroes (only survivors) Tomb Radier, Salara. A genuine mistiry. I have no idea what this is, or if its any good, but it sure did end up in my history somehow.
- WHO THE FUCK IS USING MY ACCOUNT WHAT THE FUCK IS “GUILD WARS” I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THESE ARE NOT FICS OR FANDOMS I HAVE READ WHAT IS HAPPENING
- Seam by Seam Homestuck, Rosemary, Your standard alternia invades earth and keeps a bunch of slaves style fic.
- WHAT IS HAPPENING I READ Dreaming in Binary LIKE IN FEBRUARY OR SOMETHING WHAT THE FU C K IS IT DOING IN MY LAST WEEK’S HISTORY????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? I mean it’s really good I’m a fan, at least an 8/10 probably 9 really, but like. What. What the fuck.
Okay I need to stop because I am legitimately upsetting myself, which is like mostly a function of exhaustion but also what the fuck is going on, I need to change my password that’s what.
What the fuck is Guild Wars?
Why is tomb raider there?

Genghis Khan had a government with a code name “yassa” that had a standard of equality towards everybody. He prohibited stealing, defection of soldiers, wife stealing, and other rules which made everything safer. He gave full protection to everybody and had no favorites with anybody. The Mongol Empire did not emphasize the importance of ethnicity and race in the administrative realm, instead, He believed that appointments and responsibilities should be given by talent and skills not by wealth.
Mongols were highly tolerant of most religions, and typically sponsored several at the same time. At the time of Genghis Khan in the 13th century, virtually every religion had found converts, from Buddhism to Christianity and Islam. To avoid strife, Genghis Khan set up an institution that ensured complete religious freedom, though he himself was a shamanist. Under his administration, all religious leaders were exempt from taxation, and from public service. Mongol emperors were known for organizing competitions of religious debates among clerics, and these would draw large audiences.
Out of some malformed urge to fulfill my original mission statement of the night, I put “factual feminist” into the tumblr search to see what videos it might suggest to me and literally the first blog was “feminismisahatemovement” and I just do not have the patience.
Don’t watch The Factual feminist. It’s basically trash. on’t bother. There are infinitely better options available to you. I can literally recommend Let’s plays with better feminist messages.
Just give it a pass.
