    oh-forsure:

    dichotomization:

    The Scold’s Bridle, a British invention, possibly originating in Scotland, used between the 16th and 19th century. It was a device used to control, humiliate and punish gossiping, troublesome women by effectively gagging them. Scold comes from the ‘common scold’ : a public nuisance, more often than not women, who habitually gossiped and quarrelled with their neighbours, while the name bridle describes the part that fitted into the mouth. If only this could still be done to lying busybodies.

    FYI only Europeans did this…at the height of their “civilizing” campaigns of violence and genocide against “barbarians”…

    You need one.

    You must be a European who thinks it’s still 1787.

    Bye

    "guess since im a white man im not allowed to have opinions"

    your opinions have shaped the world we live in today not being catered to for 83.9 seconds will not fuckin kill you

    Wouldn’t it be so fabulous if they didn’t get to have opinions any more or wouldn’t have them respected, at all? It would be so fabulous.

    Reminder that the creators of Night Vale made their show without any corporate sponsorship or financial compensation other than donations and selling T-shirts and they made it to the number one slot on Itunes and they did it with a godblessed openly queer protagonist and an explicitly dark-skinned love interest thank you and good night.

  10. SCIENCE HAS BEEN WRONG BEFORE AND IT WILL BE WRONG AGAIN. IF YOU FAIL TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT SCIENCE IS AN ONGOING PURSUIT OF UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD AROUND US BASED ON THE INFORMATION AVAILABLE AND NOT AN IMMUTABLE OBJECTIVE TRUTH, YOU MAY HAVE MISSED THE PURPOSE OF SCIENCE COMPLETELY.
