Better Identification of Viking Corpses Reveals: Half of the Warriors Were Female | Tor.com

"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives,  and etc etc:
- White people are less likely to be arrested for the same crime than black people, and black people serve longer (much longer!) sentences than white people.
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans. 
- Racial bias in hiring in the U.S. is well-documented and persistent.
- African American students are far more likely to be punished in schools, even though they are not much more likely to break school rules than their white peers.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination. 
- White people in the U.S. on average have lower mortgage rates than African Americans.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.

Tonight, I got to eat pieces of six different amazing homemade pizzas and then waddle home.

Second photo, clockwise from 12 o’clock: Indian taco tofu pizza (curry sauce, paneer, red quinoa, mango kiwi salsa, guacamole); eggplant “cutlets”, peppers, and onions; penne alla vodka pizza; pepperoni, mushroom and peppers with fresh mozzarella; pineapple, red peppers and jalapeños with garlic butter cream sauce; stuffed pizza with white sauce, ricotta, spinach, broccoli, and tomatoes.
Last day of being 23:
  • Unintentionally dressed exactly like Minnie Mouse (red shirt, navy blue skirt with white polka dots).  Didn’t notice until a co-worker pointed it out around noon.
  • Was majorly complimented by my boss’ boss.
  • Helped judge a fucking pizza making contest.  6 pizzas, 6 winners.

It was a good day.

Definitely a tough week at work.  But nothing a little retail therapy at my neighborhood independent book store/coffee shop couldn’t cure.  Also, I ate about a dozen cubes of cheese today as part of the constant parade of free food at my job (I don’t make breakfast or lunch anymore because I get 70% of them for free #blessed) and cheese pretty much always improves my day/mood/life.

Corina, I am SPECIFICALLY posting this for you.

(Also a little bit for the Sciascias.)

“I did this radio show and the deejay asks me, ‘What if you woke up tomorrow and you were beautiful?’
What do you mean ‘what if’?
He said, ‘What if you woke up and you were blonde and you had blue eyes and you were 5’11 and you weighed 100 pounds and you were beautiful? What would you do?’
And I said, ‘Well, I probably wouldn’t get up ‘cause I’d be too weak to stand.’
And I felt very sorry for him, ‘cause if that’s the only kind if person that you think is beautiful, you must not see very much beauty in the world.
And I think everybody is beautiful. And if you don’t think that I am beautiful, you are missing out. Because I am so beautiful.”

“I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.” —Jonathan Carroll  (via theremina)
