"The prisoners’ uniforms were marked with a colored cloth triangle to denote their offense or origin. The pink triangle, however, was about 2 or 3 centimeters larger than the others, so that we could be clearly recognized from a distance. Jews, homosexuals, and Gypsies, the yellow, pink, and brown triangles, were the prisoners who suffered the most frequent and most severely from the tortures and blows of the SS and the Capos. But the lowest of the low in this "scum" were we, the men with the pink triangle. 

We could only sleep in our nightshirts and had to keep our hands outside the blankets… anyone found with his underclothes on in bed or his hands under his blanket - there were checks almost every night - was taken outside and had several bowls of water poured over him before being left standing outside for a good hour. Only a few people survived this treatment… we, who wore the pink triangle, were prioritized for medical experiments, and these generally ended in death. 

In Sachsenhausen, at least, a homosexual was  never permitted to have any position of responsibility. Nor could we even speak with prisoners from other blocks, with a different colored badge; we were told we might try to seduce them.”

-Heinz Heger, The Men with the Pink Triangle 

- What they didn’t tell me about the Holocaust and queer identities; not in high school, not in college, not when I visited Berlin, and not even at the Auschwitz Memorial. Queer erasure of history is alive and well.

Played 499,945 times



so this is the best version of this song that I have come across … cobbled together from two separate recordings … but will have to do until it is officially released.

I wish I knew how to convince Disney to actually release this version (unabridged) … the orchestration really makes Idina Menzel’s voice shine

We have this in our Disney Dreams of Winter! show, and the moment she starts to say “Let It Go” we have these amazing fireworks and that’s always the point I start to cry because it’s too perfect XD

The Enigma of Amigara Fault is a creepy comic by Junji Ito. When many man shaped holes suddenly appear on the sides of a mountain, it causes thousands of people from all over the world to gather, then things get very twisted.
Read the full comic here. Be sure to read from right to left, instead of left to right.

He [Saint-Just] himself had had to fight to overcome the doubts raised over the fact that he was the youngest member of the Convention. His political enemies had made much of this, dismissing him as not yet ready for the responsibility of public office. This characterization had dogged him since his first attempt at an election into national politics, when he was below the legal age. After Saint-Just’s death Courtois mocked him as having been too young to be entrusted with the responsibilities of political leadership, describing him as ‘…only just escaped from the chalk dust of school’. Saint-Just himself had argued, however, that the contrary was true. Back in 1791 he had characterized his political identity in these terms: ‘I am very young…but because I was young, it seemed to me that I was closer to nature’. Proximity to nature made a man more authentically virtuous. Thus youth and lack of experience were advantages in revolutionary politics, for they meant that one had not been corrupted by the power institutions of the old regime.

He was the closest to all of them to have been truly revolutionized himself.

you ever notice a lot of stuff is considered poor and gross unless its upper middle class (white) people doing it

food trucks in the 90s were the realm of taco trucks and fairground food and were always considered unhygienic and nasty until all these rich city kids started opening food trucks and now they’re “trendy” and “innovative”

riding your bike to work is only considered geofriendly if you can also afford to drive a car but don’t want to, then you’re saving the earth, everyone else isn’t somehow??

recycling old cheap stuff to be used as furniture and wearing really old clothing is a sign of poverty unless you’re doing it a certain way or wearing a certain kind of old clothing

double standards are gross and you should expose them in your life as much as possible

Here is a short list of a few of the hundreds of examples of the media intentionally manipulating the public to support Israel’s recent offensive against Palestinians
July 24, 2014

Please reblog or message with additions as you see/think of them and I will edit with the additions. I am sure we can create quite a large list of examples.
image There’s also this instance in the Washington Post where the headline is worded in such a way that one might think that the 330 deaths are Israeli, not Palestinian, and caused by Hamas and not Israel. Also, in the majority of news stories (not all, but many), the word “killed” is used when the victim is Israeli, and “dead” when the victim is Palestinian. It’s like they’re trying to give the impression that no blame can be assigned for a Palestinian death because they weren’t “killed,” they are just “dead” somehow…
