    Winterfell’s not in the South," Jon objected.
    “Yes it is. Everything below the Wall’s south to us.”
    He had never thought of it that way. “I suppose it’s all in where you’re standing.”
    “Aye,” Ygritte agreed. “It always is.

    In which Jon Snow takes an enemy captive, and immediately proceeds to listen to one of her folk tales and see things from her perspective

    (via ygrittekissedbyfire)

    "You know nothing, Jon Snow" isn’t just a funny meme about Jon being stupid. It’s Ygritte telling him he doesn’t know things, and Jon caring enough to learn, and to incorporate what he learns into his worldview. Jon’s one of the few men in Westeros to consider what a woman would think/do before he makes decisions. This happens all throughout his chapters in ADWD, where he talks to her in his head. "They know nothing, Ygritte. And worse, they will not learn."

    life as a black person is one where you must always walk with your guard up because you never know when or where the latest attack on your humanity will come from. smfh.

    It’s sickening

    but racism is only an america problem, and anti-blackness isn’t global. right.

Scarlet Letters: Getting the History of Abortion and Contraception Right 

Abortion was not just legal—it was a safe, condoned, and practiced procedure in colonial America and common enough to appear in the legal and medical records of the period. Official abortion laws did not appear on the books in the United States until 1821, and abortion before quickening did not become illegal until the 1860s. If a woman living in New England in the 17th or 18th centuries wanted an abortion, no legal, social, or religious force would have stopped her.


Reminder that records of contraception and abortion exist all the way back to 1550 BCE in ancient Egypt!
This was a really fascinating read. Until the early 19th century, abortion was legal until “quickening,” or when the pregnant person first felt the baby kick - anywhere from 14 to 26 weeks into the pregnancy. Society only began to condemn it when people decided white, middle- to upperclass women weren’t having enough children soon enough in their lives, and when male doctors started taking over traditionally female health care fields, like midwifery.
Yep, shockingly enough, it’s never, ever been about the life of the fetus - only about misogyny, racism, and classism (ableism, too, though the article doesn’t discuss it).

The bolded is hella important.

From the first article: “Increased female independence was also perceived as a threat to male power and patriarchy, especially as Victorian women increasingly volunteered outside the home for religious and charitable causes.”

    Artist Loren Stump specializes in a form of glasswork called murrine, where rods of glass are melted together and then sliced to reveal elaborate patterns and forms. While the murrina process appeared in the Mideast some 4,000 years ago, Stump has perfected his own technique over the past 35 years to the point where he can now layer entire portraits and paintings in glass before slicing them to see the final results.
