Mexico City: Sex workers gather to commemorate their colleagues who were violently murdered, two days before the Day of the Dead festival.

this is why you don’t fuck around with day of the dead, because it has a deeper meaning than “pretty sugar skulls”. those are offerings to the dead, a symbol of each and every person we choose to honor in the afterlife; not some quirky costume to put on and appropriate. those skulls mean something, the pan de muertos and altars mean something. so go fuck yourself if you think that they’re just for decoration while you shit on my ancestors for you stupid pasty ass bland halloween party.

And lets also remember sex workers who are not protected and their fight as feminism glosses over them and shame them

The coyotes around my house have been v excited these past few months. I’ve seen them probs 6 times as often since June than all the other times I’d seen one my whole life. And now I hear them howling every night, instead of once in a very long while as I used to.

One thing that always bothered me about that picture of mulan, more than the obvious artifice which is pretty out of character, is the colour of her outfit. The general consensus seems to be that mulan took place in the Northern Wei dynasty, but during the Tang Dynasty which preceded it, the colour yellow, especially bright yellow, had become the exclusive domain of the Emperor. And in those times disrespect to the Emperor could cost you your head at best and the lives of you and your entire family at worst. So, y know, maybe don’t put her in yellow clothes.

I finally got around to trying out the sparkly purple eyeshadow i got like 3 months ago and then had to go and fuck it up by thinking i could do eyeliner as well. it’s a bit hard to see, but believe me it’s not great

Modern Day Circle of Magic AU where Sandry drags her siblings, head-first, into musical theatre

elexuscal:

Because this is apparently what happens when I freak out about Mark Oshiro starting the series while listening to the ‘Musical Theatre’ playlist on my iPod.

I can just totally imagine Sandry adoring stage shows and musicals. During her travels with her birth parents she would take every opportunity to see stage productions, and that adoration didn’t stop when she came to Discipline. She started her new family on Disney musicals and other music movies, determined to share her love. Her personal favorite is Legally Blonde (young woman who nobody respects because of her appearance and love of fashion becomes successful lawyer, of course she’d love it.)

Briar takes some convincing, because he’s never seen a musical before and it sounds totally girly. Then it takes one film about a poor boy feeding a carnivorous plant, which proceeds to take over the world, to become hooked. (Little Shop of Horrors will always remain his favourite.)

Though she pretends indifference, Tris actually really grows to love musical movie nights. Soon she’s borrowing Sandry’s iPod to listen to the Wicked soundtrack, and stifling her annoyance that she can’t see it onstage. Eventually Frozen comes out, and its nearly as good. 

Daja really can’t get into musicals. Its just not her thing- they’re too silly. Its fun to watch her siblings start singing like total dorks, though. If she had to pick, she’d probably say Stomp. That show is fun
