I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)

And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.

Oh, and by the way…

Images from the Daily Overview Project

About the project:

Our project was inspired, and derives its name, from an idea known as the Overview Effect. This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once. That’s the cognitive shift that we hope to inspire.

From our line of sight on the earth’s surface, it’s impossible to fully appreciate the beauty and intricacy of the things we’ve constructed, the sheer complexity of the systems we’ve developed, or the devastating impact that we’ve had on our planet. We believe that beholding these forces as they shape our Earth is necessary to make progress in understanding who we are as a species, and what is needed to sustain a safe and healthy planet.

Six favorite quotes:

Hmm, quotes. Quotes? Quotes quotes quotes. You know, someone has probably said something terribly clever and memorable at some point, but I cannot for the life of me think of a single quote right now. Have a poem I like instead:

Les enfants qui s’aiment s’embrassent debout
Contre les portes de la nuit
Et les passants qui passent les désignent du doigt
Mais les enfants qui s’aiment
Ne sont là pour personne
Et c’est seulement leur ombre
Qui tremble dans la nuit
Excitant la rage des passants
Leur rage, leur mépris, leurs rires et leur envie
Les enfants qui s’aiment ne sont là pour personne
Ils sont ailleurs bien plus loin que la nuit
Bien plus haut que le jour
Dans l’éblouissante clarté de leur premier amour

Jacques Prévert

reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship

Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.

Just watched the trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey

diaryof-alittleswitch:

And I have to say that I am scared for our community. I can already forsee many people claiming to be Doms simply because they watched the movie and want the “power” the supposed Dom has in the movie. I’m honestly scared for what will come out of this. They are glamorizing something many of us take seriously. And they are glamorizing an inaccurate representation of BDSM.

They arent going to know or realize that this guy is manipulative, controlling, mentally and physically abusive but instead think “oh he’s hot and doing naughty things and taking care of her and he’s rich”. I can see many naive girls thinking this type of behavior is okay and acceptable cause “hey, he’s a Dom and he knows better, right?”.

They aren’t going to see that in order to have this lifestyle you need to fully trust your parter. That consent goes both ways. That it can be dangerous. That you have the right to say no at any time. That you can and should have a safe word/hand signal to use freely when you think it’s necessary. That you do not have to agree to everything the Dom asks of you. That you can walk away any time. That after care is essential and needed regardless. That your Dominant should never, ever just walk away from you after any scene or play session just because you couldn’t handle the task/activity.

I have many more thoughts regarding the book and this movie but the more I talk the angrier I get so….. breathe in…. breathe out and wooooosahhhhhh. …..

Yet another example as to why Ellen is my role model.

In 1997, Ellen came out as gay on her sitcom, Ellen. She was met with a horrendous amount of backlash from society and the media. She was the butt of every joke on late night TV. She was dubbed “Ellen DeGenerate.” She even received death threats. 

Ellen went from the most popular sitcom actress to the most hated. Desperate, she turned to the gay community for support. However, Chastity Bono, a fellow lesbian and a representative for GLAAD at the time, betrayed Ellen, telling Variety Magazine, “[‘Ellen’] is so gay it’s excluding a large part of our society … we have to be realistic. This is network primetime.” 

Ellen trusted Chastity to help as she was also gay, and would understand what Ellen was going through. Instead, Chastity publicly denounced Ellen, leaving Ellen alone to defend herself. Ellen’s show was subsequently cancelled. 

Flash forward to 2011. Chastity Bono is now Chaz Bono, a transgender male. He is going to be a contestant of Dancing with the Stars, much to the displeasure of the public. He receives backlash, similar to the kind Ellen endured in 1997. In response, Ellen defends Chaz in her monologue (seen here), and invites Chaz on her show to give his perspective. 

Ellen chose to help Chaz, who was being persecuted by the media, even though he had hurt Ellen severely in the past. Ellen definitely did not have to have Chaz on her show, but she did to be kind. Ellen not only forgave Chaz, but gave him the support that he failed to give her earlier. 

Be kind to one another. It’s not just something Ellen says after every show; it’s what she lives by. And we should all try to live by it too.

This woman needs to be president.
