The Rare and Ferocious Swamp Rabbit

Expat living in the UK. BPD, PCOS, A-OK.

Just another Tumblr Feminist/Social Justice Warrior. (I will respect your triggers and will post warnings just ask.)

WARNING: Sometimes I get angry and get into long-winded arguments. I don't believe in being cruel in call-outs to those within your own community, but if you're a racist/sexist/homophobe I believe you have lost the right to basic politeness.

nonbinarypunk:

There ARE laws against this. It’s called rape by deception or fraudulent rape and basically, it’s anytime the conditions of your consent are compromised. In a situation like this, you consented to protected sex. By having sex in a way you did not consent to, a crime WAS committed and he could be charged if any physical effects like pregnancy or STD occurred. Remember, ANY SEXUAL ACTIVITY YOU DON’T CONSENT TO IS RAPE. 

If a guy does this, it’s rape. Call the cops. Ruin his life since he has no problem risking yours. Make him fucking learn. Rapists belong in jail. Rape by deception is rape, not a funny “meme”. 

Before you think “wull, nobody gets hurt and this isn’t like serious rape like that Richard Shdukins guy say” imagine the betrayal of finding out that you agreed to have sex only if a condom is used and your partner lied simply because it felt better to them to have sex without. 

- HIV/AIDS

- Unwanted pregnancy

- STIs

- Finding out your partner is a liar and doesn’t care about your safety.

Wouldn’t you be pretty angry if you agreed to let your doctor give you a tetanus shot only to find out that they used a possibly contaminated needle for their own convenience? 

Yes, I’m comparing the person who does this kind of shit to an old, used, dirty needle. And that’s pretty polite, considering.

The news: Israeli units attacked Gaza’s only power station, burning large sections of it to the ground. It made for a dramatic picture in Gaza, one that some on social media said looked like actual hell on Earth.

The bombing appears to have cut off both electricity and water sanitation for most of the Palestinian territory’s 1.8 million residents. According to the Washington Post, the damage will take months to repair and has left almost all of Gaza, including some hospitals, without utility access. Six of eight remaining power connections from Israel have been severed by the fighting.

But that’s not all. Later, an Israeli tank attack on a UN school killed at least 15 Palestinians, even though Gaza residents were told to seek safety there. Israel accuses Hamas of using schools as bases to launch rockets.

Here’s what you need to know: The death toll in the Gaza Strip soared past 1,200 Tuesday, with whole neighborhoods reduced to rubble as constant bombing killed as many as 100 Palestinians. As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that the Israel Defence Force’s campaign in Gaza would be “prolonged,” hinting that the Israeli invasion has taken on new objectives, Gazans cowered in fear from some of the most intense bombings yet seen in the area. 

The United Nations estimates that 70-80% of the dead are civilians. An additional 7,000 have been wounded. In short, the situation in Gaza is getting much worse very quickly.

Dozens of other attacks ravaged whole neighborhoods, with ferocious strikes targeting senior Hamas political leader Ismail Haniyeh’s residence, Hamas’ al-Aqsa TV headquarters, a finance building and several local mayors’ homes. Gaza City’s al-Amin Mohammed Mosque, which sits across the street from a house owned by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, was blown apart. Hamas and Israel blamed each other for shells which exploded in Jabaliya refugee camp, killing at least 10 people.

Bombs also fell near areas where international journalists were housed.

time lapse video appears to show an entire Gaza neighborhood totally annihilated after an hour of sustained airstrikes.

On the Israeli side, the threat of rockets sent some in Tel Aviv scrambling for bomb shelters. Bands of Hamas militants are somehow still finding their way through tunnels leading under the border. Five Israeli soldiers were killed in gun battles with one such infiltration force, bringing the total number of soldiers dead to 53. The IDF’s official propaganda channel has turned up the rhetoric, offering prayers to slain heroes and providing daily updates on the number of targets bombed.

Meanwhile, Hamas distributed some chilling propaganda of its own: A video of the tunnel attack, which appears to show the deaths of some of the five soldiers killed.

A ceasefire has so far failed to develop, with both Hamas and Israel blaming each other.

Why you should care: While the rest of the world appears pretty shocked by the images coming out of Gaza, most Israelis either aren’t shocked or accept them as the cost of dismantling Hamas. The Washington Post reports between 87% and 95% of Israeli Jews generally support continuing the operation, while four out of five oppose a unilateral withdrawal. Hamas’ merry band of fanatics remains obstinate despite horrifying losses in manpower and resources. As of now there doesn’t seem to be a short-term impetus for either side to change the course of the ongoing conflict, which means continued devastation of this scale is sadly likely.

Are they really that fucking fanatical when their people are being bombed into non-existence and NO ONE is intervening, you glib fuck?

Please understand that I will continue to write as long is there is one person left on earth who cares, who wants to learn, who is willing to fight. I will post these works for as long as you are willing to see them.

Thank you.

The tumblr is relatively new, but is already full of all sorts of really cool art done by and related to poc in Medieval  Europe.  And they’re accepting submissions at the moment, so if you know of any art that should be featured but isn’t, swing on by.  

pagan-war-explosions:

This medieval poc stuff is amusing. These people seek to correct what they see as a grave historical misconception when the core of their belief system is that the world was an egalitarian paradise, free from hatred, conflict and oppression until Whites beamed down from space around 1492.

Can you not read/write more than a certain word count per day or your head explodes? If you did you’d see that your thoughts aren’t so much as “amusing” but “illustrating how little time I have spent at that website and how little most bigots, such as myself, care to educate themselves.”

diarrheaworldstarhiphop:

What pisses me off the most about Medieval PoC is not the person who runs it themselves (there will always be the village idiot in any community) but the fact that there are LITERALLY THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IT WITHOUT A SINGLE CRITICAL THOUGHT.

There is no difference between how Medieval PoC and Ancient Aliens come to conclusions that support their absurd arguments

Case 1: Ancient Aliens were present, directly influenced and produced this European culture
Case 2: PoC were present, directly influenced and produced this European culture

Argument for Case 1: Here’s a single weathered and fragmented depiction of something that looks vaguely like a UFO in ancient record. ALIENS CREATED EUROPEAN CIVILIZATION CONFIRMED
Argument for Case 2: Here’s a single weathered and fragmented depiction of something that looks like PoC in ancient record. PoC CREATED EUROPEAN CIVILIZATION CONFIRMED

Yet people go OH MY GOD, EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION ARE SO WRONG!!! THERE’S A CONSPIRACY!!!! with Case 2 despite both arguments being virtually the same.

Pray for this generation because you know through shitty blogs like Medieval PoC, kids are going into University and the workforce thinking that throughout history all of Europe was a racially diverse paradise with white people being a recent mutant strain upon the population.

Yakub pls go

It’s super funny because you just outed yourself as the aforementioned village idiot. No background in art history, history, or any idea of global social migration.

But you keep yaking. As long as you’re not one of the total losers sending threats and stalking her then you’re free to present yourself as the 100% asshole you are.

[TW: harassment, threats, stalking, violence, slurs, racism]

So, someone decided to post this submission with a link to medievalpoc to a subreddit called “Tumblr In Action” this morning.

I’ve posted about this before.

Let’s stop pretending we have no idea where this comes from:

And can we stop pretending as if these supposed “rules” actually mean anything, or are ever actually enforced:

Medievalpoc has received tens of thousands of hits from this particular subreddit from more than 60 separate threads, some of which have hundreds of derogatory comments, using slurs, threats, and racist ‘jokes’.

And it is somehow a “coincidence” that I have had to speak to police four times and make official reports due to threats, stalking, harassment, and other nastiness? That people have followed me around in person without my knowledge or consent because of this? People have circumvented the “ignore” function by creating accounts just to send racial slurs and threats.

The rest of this is going under a cut, because it is truly horrific. Please proceed with caution.

This is, clinically speaking, sociopathic behaviour. That these people are so insecure in their identity that they have to build it up by making sure no others are represented…

Fuck these people. Tell me where to donate, tell me where to send the letter, what to sign. We need to end these assholes and call a spade a spade: there is a line between trolling and affecting a person’s real life in a negative and destructive fashion. 

Racist PoS: You deserve whatever IRL repercussions are coming to you.
