being genderless literally can be dated back to mesopotamia and there are still people who act like its an internet fad thats just incredible to me

there are times when I really wish Constantine had never been born and literally any culture but this one had wound up on top.

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

Is there anything a natural 20 can’t do?

This is a poster idea I developed to show off the amazingness of tabletop rpgs.

The Natural Twenty song has become a theme joke of our group.

This is hilarious in the darkest way because this tree is holding the dead corpse of one of the other trees

In the Middle: Re-making The Real Middle Ages™ →

medievalpoc:

Not only are the Middle Ages constructed as a nostalgically longed-for pre-race utopia, the same argument is also used to in attempts exclude people of color from contemporary fan communities and to construct those communities as normatively white.

People of color are only welcome in many medievalist digital spaces if they pass as white by not asking questions or commenting on any thread to do with race, let alone starting one.

The myth of the monochrome Middle Ages, in which the medieval is originary, pure, and white, transcends geographical and temporal boundaries. It is attached, through supposed biological descent, to white bodies, wherever and whenever they go, even into the apparently non-corporeal digital realms of fan-forums, television and video-games.

There are many fans of color of popular culture medievalisms, but a hostile milieu which consistently repeats the messages that ‘you don’t belong in the Middle Ages’ and the ‘the Middle Ages are not yours’ actively discourages setting out on, let alone completing, a journey from interested fan to professional scholar.

So if anyone is at all interested, there is an address to send donations for Darren Wilson. Obviously, I’m not suggesting you do that, but it is a non home address that one might possibly send letters expressing exactly how they feel about supporting Officer Wilson. Obviously not threats or harassment; it’s a freaking police union hall, and threatening the police is an excellent way to end up in jail.

It’s on the GoFundMe page.

…yes.
