“ Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched. ”

"Hello Guy, back working at the place serving me nachos I see."

Keeping that one in the books to use for later, hahahaha.

Update: There were a lot of people there so I didn’t get a comment, PHEW.

I want to get nachos for lunch but I also don’t want the guy who works at the grill in my building to be like “Hello Kylie back for more nachos I see.”

I’ll swim and sail on savage seas
with ne’er a fear of drowning
And gladly ride the waves of life
if you will marry me

korra not being on tv means there’s THAT many more little brown girls who aren’t going to see themselves represented in the tv shows they watch and that fucking sucks

Gametech’s new series of “WaSaBi” 3DS cases. These all feature transparent cases to allow your 3DS’s color to show beneath the traditional Japanese designs. As always with WaSaBi, they’re really pretty. The option to let my blue 3DS show through might make these my favorite yet.

Although, of course, it would look weird on top of my Slime-faced 3DS.
