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

"In many ways, this discovery is well-timed with the recent uproar over Thor becoming a title for both sexes instead of an exclusively male name. Fingers crossed this means that pop culture could start including more female warriors than just Sif and Lagertha (from The History Channel’s Vikings).”

ha ha all your faves are girls SUCK IT

Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive  because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics  to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.

sometimes i like to think of how aggressively NOT a nature person steve would be

i mean, he’s a city boy. loves being a city boy. he had to survive in the wilderness during the war, but it was a lot of teeth-gritting, trudging through the mud, sleeping on the cold, rocky ground and longing for warm meals at home

so the first time sam takes him camping he’s just so CONFUSED and CONCERNED

like, sam are we going on the run or something, will they see us if we make a fire?? sam what did you do i will help you i promise

and the first time sam takes steve and bucky, bucky expresses the same level of wtf like, we are walking up and down hills for FUN?? why are we eating cold beans when microwaves have been invented what is this

and steve’s like, humor him okay we love him. remember we love him

(meanwhile natasha’s just too smart for this noise. she saw sam’s camper and NOPE’d out of the driveway so fast she left a rubber mark on the sidewalk. she spent the week at a 5-star hotel w clint eating junk food and watching a scifi originals marathon)

remember we love him

In 1808, Napoleon, running out of scenic holiday destinations to invade, somehow totally forgot about his neighbor to the south, Spain. So that year he dispatched his troops, kicking off the Peninsular War.
Only 20 years old and working as a barmaid in the town of Valdepenas, Juana Galan was not expecting a surge of French soldiers to come storming through her village. But on June 6, that’s exactly what happened. At that time, most of the men were fighting Napoleon’s forces elsewhere in the nation. Juana, unfazed by things like rifles and Frenchmen and French riflemen, began organizing the women in her village to form a trap for the approaching army.
When the army arrived, Juana and her friends were ready. They dumped boiling water and oil on the French troops, which by all accounts will instantly take the fight out of pretty much anyone. Then Juana, armed with only a batan, beat back the heavily armed French cavalry with her squad of village women, almost none of whom were armed with guns.
The French retreated, giving up on capturing not just Juana’s town but the entire province of La Mancha, leading to ultimate Spanish victory. Today, she is seen in Spain as a national hero, a symbol of resistance, strength, patriotism, feminism and hitting shit with a stick.

That’s one hell of a portrait.

hitting shit with a stick

This is maybe the best portrait of anyone that I’ve ever seen, ever.

If that portrait doesn’t scream “A hundred motherfuckers can’t tell me nothing” then I don’t know what does.

"Come at me, bro."

What do you mean there was never a plot arc where Boyd got some answers, Erica got to tear shit up, and Danny got to use his talents?

"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.
