Taylor vs. the professionals
I work somewhere that (misleadingly) doesn't sell bananas.

*loud, horrified sirius black shrieking*
we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.
if you’re gonna shit on people for using fictional characters to motivate themselves well first of all what the fuck is your problem
I’d like to thank my 9 patrons on www.patreon.com/1111, who are a constant reminder that I love to make comics for you guys. Today’s AZ of Creatures was brought to you by them and the letter X.
I ALMOST DIDN’T FUCKING REALISE!
my therapist taught me to start thinking of my anxiety as my panicky friend
this is so cute omg
Woah this is super useful!!
For all my anxious friends out there.
This totally works! Some of us get stuck in the sense that we *are* our emotions, so they overwhelm us and we can’t do anything about them. When you give your emotion an identity separate from you, it gives you the distance to make better judgments about it, and to comfort yourself better. 10/10 therapy veterans would recommend.
Needed this today.
talk about perspective. shit.
I remember the first time I saw a map of Africa to scale. My jaw dropped.
I had kind of a nerd-out this morning. But I felt like everyone needed to know about this.
I think I’d read an entire book on this. If you’ve written one, please let me know about it.
I can’t believe how much this post has blown up, over 8K notes in two days! I’m loving everyone’s enthusiasm for history!
I researched a lot of this sort of thing while working at a local museum a few summers ago, and have since turned that work into actual articles. This turned into a reflection on fashion for First Things, which you can read here. As for any longer work, one of these days somebody’s gonna let me into their grad school for history and the madness can begin. Until then, you could probably get some good book recommendations from people like historicalfashion (love her blog).
I would contest a few points about the exact origins, but I love it! I may have to show the experts on 18th century fashion I’ll be seeing later today.
