Hands down, my favorite reoccurring joke.You forgot this one
Look, sometimes an artist’s just gotta draw cozy domestic AU fanart of their own characters. (I hope you didn’t think I was kidding about getting way too invested in the Gay-Dads-Adopt-a-Baby story.)
This one’s for you, NIMONA readers - thanks for sticking with me this far <3
Ok, so yesterday I told you all about the mentalist guy who contacted me about a blog post I wrote about. Now, he apparently wants to ask me some questions. What is going on here? Like what the hell could he possible want to ask me about?
Ok, so I just have to get this out cause it’s kind of weird and a bit amazing, I think. So way back in April I was taking an English class at Penn State and we had to blog every week. One of the blogs was something we were passionate about so I picked Sherlock Holmes and ended up making this post about this guy named Joe Riggs who’s a pretty well known mentalist type person and is actually pretty interesting. Anyway, he’s called “The Real Sherlock Holmes” and actually has a booked out titled that. So he somehow found this post I wrote basically explaining who he is and stuff and then proceeded to tweet me about. He has also friend requested me on Facebook. It’s kind of awesome and really weird. Like, what just happened?
i have an idea in my head where thor is just like. painfully incapable of being cissexist.

When the Nazi concentration camps were liberated by the Allies, it was a time of great jubilation for the tens of thousands of people incarcerated in them. But an often forgotten fact of this time is that prisoners who happened to be wearing the pink triangle (the Nazis’ way of marking and identifying homosexuals) were forced to serve out the rest of their sentence. This was due to a part of German law simply known as “Paragraph 175” which criminalized homosexuality. The law wasn’t repealed until 1969.
This should be required learning, internationally.
You need to know this. You need to remember this. This is not something to swept under the carpet nor be forgotten.
Never. Too many have died for the way they have loved. That needs stop now.
Make it stop?
I did a report on this in my World History class my sophomore year of high school. It was incredibly unsettling.
My teacher shown the class this. Mostly everyone in the class felt uncomfortable.
I have reblogged this in the past, but it is so ironic that it comes across my dash right now. I a currently working as a docent at my city’s Holocaust Education Center (( I say currently because I’ve also done research and translation for them )) and out current exhibit is one on loan from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum ((USHMM)). This is a little known historical fact that Paragraph 175 was not repealed after the war and those convicted under Nazi laws as a danger to society because they were gay were not released because they had be convicted in a court of law. There was no liberation or justice for them as they weren’t considered criminals, or even victims for that matter. They were criminals who remained persecuted and ostracized and kept on the fringes of society for decades after the war had been won. Paragraph175 wasn’t actually repealed until 1994. And it was only in May 2002, that the German parliament completed legislation to pardon all homosexuals convicted under Paragraph175 during the Nazi era. History has forgotten about these men and women — please educate yourselves so this does not happen again. Remember this history. Remember them.
