HERMES » He is quick and cunning, and moved freely between the worlds of the mortal and divine, as emissary and messenger of the gods, intercessor between mortals and the divine, and conductor of souls into the afterlife. He is protector and patron of travelers, herdsmen, thieves, orators and wit, literature and poets, athletics and sports, invention and trade. In some myths he is a trickster, and outwits other gods for his own satisfaction or the sake of humankind.
The Shot Glass Heard Around The World
In 1969, the Stonewall riots — precipitated when the NYPD burst into the famed gay bar and started being their usually abusive selves — defined the modern gay movement.
Among the first to physically resist the police was Marsha P. Johnson, the now infamous transgender rights activist who co-founded S.T.A.R. (Street Transgender Action Revolutionaries) with Sylvia Rivera in the ’70s.
At 1:20 in the morning on Saturday, June 28, 1969, four plainclothes police officers entered Stonewall Inn and announced “Police! We’re taking the place!"
Officers forced the customers to form into two lines divided by perceived gender and show them their genitals to confirm if it matched the gender on their identification card.
At some point during the raid, Marsha Johnson proclaimed, ‘I got my civil rights!' and then threw a shot glass into a mirror, adding on to the tension and creating an atmosphere of resistance. Some witnesses and historians believe her action is what instigated the riot.
Patrons began to refuse to produce their I.D. and police decided to arrest everyone still at the bar. Those who were not arrested gathered outside the bar and quickly drew a crowd of over 1,000 queers. As rumors spread through the crowd that those inside were being beaten by cops, they began throwing pennies, beer bottles and other items at police.
A drag queen who was shoved by an officer in front of the crowd responded by hitting him on the head with her purse as the crowd began to boo.
Soon after, an unidentified lesbian was hit on the head with a billy club after complaining that her handcuffs were too tight. She faced the bystanders and shouted, “Why don’t you guys do something?”
Police threw her into the back of a patrol wagons, at that point the crowd became a mob and collectively resisted the police.
Along with Sylvia Rivera, the two transgender revolutionaries created S.T.A.R. and STAR House in which they housed, fed and clothed homeless drag queens and trans* youth by hustling in the streets of NYC so that their children didn’t have to.
Marsha P. Johnson is often credited for inciting the Stonewall Riots, yet she receives close to no recognition by mainstream Gay Organizations and the queer community. I have no doubt that the erasure of Marsha’s participation in the riots and the Gay Liberation Movement is due to her being a black, transgender radical. Had she’d been a white gay cis-male, her name would be permanently embedded in every queer’s mind.
I know Marsha as a courageous queer revolutionary, a queen of Queens, a Stonewall Veteran, a dedicated activist, a mother of S.T.A.R. and a personal idol. She deserves more than anyone I know, to be recognized by the queer community.
In July 6, 1992, Johnson’s body was found floating in the Hudson River off the West Village Piers shortly after the 1992 Pride March. Friends of Johnson claims she was harassed near the spot where her body was found. The police disregarded this and ruled her death a suicide without any evidence. However, in November 2012, the NYPD re-opened the case.

I will keep on reblogging this each time it props up in my dash because it’s both important, heartwarming, and tragic.

Guys, I’m losing my shit. So, observe the humble tomato.
The scientific name for tomatoes is Lycopersicon esculentum, which apparently translates to "edible wolf peach”
Why? Apparently there was an old superstition that members of the nightshade (which includes tomatoes) were used by witches to summon werewolves.
You heard me. Suddenly that spaghetti sauce doesn’t seem so innocent.
I get dick every day and I haven’t shaved my legs in like 3 months and I haven’t shaved my vag and armpits in like 5 weeks so please be quiet about no guys wanting girls in No Shave November because there ARE mature boys/men out there who don’t give a fuck about body hair and…
realistically i only shave my legs like once a month haha.
Dude here I prefer when girls(women) don’t shave
In 1994 South Africa transitioned from white to black rule - complete with the murder of thousands of Whites:
South Africa has been referred to as the "rape capital of the world:"
Where a woman is sexually assaulted every 40 seconds:
Just over a quarter (27.6%) of South African males have raped once in their lifetime. Nearly one in two of the men who raped (46.3%) said they had raped more than one woman or girl:
It has also been described as the murder capital of the world:
Black economist Walter Williams admitted that "ordinary Africans were better off under colonialism."
Which is a view shared by many black South Africans who lived under apartheid and think their lives would change (for the better) if the Nationalist Party came back; “in terms of work they didn’t oppress us. We didnt struggle for work then:”
A reporter from New Zealand TV3 interviews Ryklieff, who stood on the front line of the anti-apartheid struggle. In 1985, he was one of a group of unarmed civilians gunned down by South African police in the infamous Trojan Horse massacre. "Like many of his countrymen, Ryklieff is starting to believe he was better off under apartheid:"
One article stated that the Black Zimbabweans commonly believed that "life had been better under the old, racist, white regime" and one Black argued that "It would have been better if whites had continued to rule… Then we could get jobs. Things were cheaper in stores. Now we have no money, no food:"
Contrary to popular belief, the White-Black income gap in South Africa was shrinking until Blacks came to rule in 1994; the White income grew from 98% higher than Blacks to 118% higher and Black poverty has significantly risen:
Rhodesia under the rule of whites was the leading African exporter of grain, yet Zimbabwe (Rhodesia was renamed when Blacks took over) cannot feed half of its population:
The country faces “starvation and economic collapse.” In July 2005 Mr Mugabe declared that his land reform policy would be complete only when there was "not a single white on the farms." But a contracting economy, hyperinflation touching 1,100% and food shortages have forced the authorities to allow some interested white farmers to return to their land, as the country faces starvation and economic collapse:
Since 1994, "an estimated 4041 farmers have been murdered and many more maimed, tortured, raped and assaulted." The official data is that the murder rate of white South African Farmers (boers) is the highest in the world by profession:
Their hospital system became "Beyond help" when the Rhodesian whites were driven away by black terrorists. If patients cannot pay they cannot be treated, a litre of intravenous fluids and a set of equipment to administer it costs Z$1.5million - half a civil servant’s monthly salary. "Patients are dying of things like dehydration - in a hospital," he said:
Zimbabwe has "the world’s highest inflation and fastest-shrinking peacetime economy… with the lowest life expectancy anywhere - just 34 for women and 37 for men - and the highest percentage of orphans."
The South African government hides black on white murders with fake death certificates:
Lastly, President Dr. Gregory Stanton of Genocide Watch, already warned last year that theAfrikaner population could be on the verge of a government-linked extermination campaign.
During a fact-finding mission to South Africa, Stanton, who helped fight against apartheid, found evidence implicating the ruling African National Congress (ANC)-South African Communist Party (SACP) government in a plot to eradicate whites as part of a scheme to foist Marxist tyranny on the nation.
“There is thus strong circumstantial evidence of government support for the campaign of forced displacement and atrocities against white farmers and their families,” Stanton said in the Genocide Watch report, adding that the end goal was communist tyranny. “There is direct evidence of [South African] government incitement to genocide.”

Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors
Memories may be passed down through generations in DNA in a process that may be the underlying cause of phobias
Memories can be passed down to later generations through genetic switches that allow offspring to inherit the experience of their ancestors, according to new research that may explain how phobias can develop. Scientists have long assumed that memories and learned experiences built up during a lifetime must be passed on by teaching later generations or through personal experience. However, new research has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. Researchers at the Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, found that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. The results may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias – it may be based on the inherited experiences of their ancestors.
