"Wonder Woman" Skateboard Wiz (1978) 

The fact that she adds on all the right safety gear makes it even better, IMO. A+ role model.

Pretty sure this gif set was inevitable.  And has just improved my week 100%

SAFETY IS SEXY

And so the world fell to its knees.

I love this post.

I just looked at my shirt and it has Guinness on it. So business as usual.

I love this so much

“I went to the beach because I thought it’d be a good place to die. I felt mad hopeless. I didn’t eat or drink for three days. Every time I fell back asleep, I hoped that I wouldn’t wake up. I thought I’d die after two or three days. But after three days, it was like: ‘Fuck, I’m not dead.’ So I walked into a hospital and said I needed help.”

I love him and I am so glad he isn’t dead.

"without us you wouldn’t have any rights!" without you we wouldn’t have to fight for them

Always this. Always.

"Remember that men gave women the right to vote!"

And remember that men should never have been at such a social and political advantage as to be able to literally give and take away rights from groups of people.

OMG THIS

Um, no. Women TOOK the right to vote.

People want to believe gender is something that’s essential, and people repeat these essentialist ideas all the time. “Oh, women do that” and “Oh, men do that” and the reality is that all women don’t anything. We as individuals do what we do, you know, and sometimes that’s informed by gender and sometimes it’s just who we are. And I think all that just makes people really, really uncomfortable because they don’t want to think about who they are.

In honor of our Disappearance issue, this is the first in a series of posts about the forgotten goddesses of lost civilizations.
Ereshkigal was the goddess of the Underworld. She ruled over judgment of the living, rebirth of the dead, and ancestral memories. 
She fell in love once, with Nergal, but the rules of the Underworld prohibited him from dwelling there, as he was not dead. Ereshkigal threatened all of the other gods and goddess that if they did not bend the rules, she would make all of the dead walk the earth. She got her way, and the two ruled the Underworld together.
She also killed her sister one time, but she brought her back to life, so that’s fine.
Ereshkigal is associated with owls, lions, and the stone lapis lazuli. Her name means “great lady under earth.”
Nergal went down the long stairway of heaven.When he arrived at the gate of Ereshkigal he said,"Gatekeeper, open [ ]!"
He struck down Nedu, the doorman of the first gate, and did not let him grapple with him.He struck down the second doorman, and did not let him grapple with him.He struck down the third doorman, and did not let him grapple with him.He struck down the fourth doorman, and did not let him grapple with him.He struck down the fifth doorman, and did not let him grapple with him.He struck down the sixth doorman, and did not let him grapple with him.He struck down the seventh doorman, and did not let him grapple with him.He entered her wide courtyard,And went up to her and laughed.He seized her by her hairdo,And pulled her from the throne.He seized her by her tresses[ ].
The two embraced each otherAnd went passionately to bed.They lay there, queen Ereshkigal and Erra, for a first day and a second day.They lay there, queen Ereshkigal and Erra, for a third day.They lay there, queen Ereshkigal and Erra, for a fourth day.They lay there, queen Ereshkigal and Erra, for a fifth day.They lay there, queen Ereshkigal and Erra, for a sixth day.
