that is the way with stories; we make them what we will. It's a way of explaining the universe while leaving the universe unexplained, it's a way of keeping it all alive, not boxing it into time. Everyone who tells a story tells it differently, just to remind us that everybody sees it differently. Some people say there are true things to be found, some people say all kinds of things can be proved. I don't believe them. The only thing for certain is how complicated it all is, like string full of knots. It's all there but hard to find the beginning and impossible to fathom the end. The best you can do is admire the cat's cradle, and maybe knot it up a bit more.

jess what should i know about medieval lesbians this is very important it is for science

CRASH COURSE IN WESTERN MEDIEVAL LESBIANRY

  1. Lesbians existed
  2. They wrote each other poems
  3. They probably banged in gardens a lot
  4. (That’s my own personal speculation but men were supposed to stay away from gardens like hello sexytime)
  5. They probably got away with it a lot because medieval men were pretty clueless
  6. Also because it wasn’t considered actual sex unless a penis or dildo was involved much like the modern day
  7. No, really.
  8. That being said there is a twelfth-century poem out there that calls lesbian sex “thigh-fencing” like a joust which is pretty hilarious
  9. Nuns lived in convents together. Giggity.
  10. If you were a nun or a single woman or a widow people were more likely to be okay with you banging a chick because they figured you couldn’t get your rocks off elsewhere (!)
  11. Also sometimes they’d “diagnose” a woman with “hysteria” (i.e. a nonspecific illness or disorder thought to be caused by a lack of sex) and the obvious solution was to have a midwife come and “bring her to hysterical paroxysm”.
  12. No, really.
  13. "Hysterical paroxysm"
  14. That’s what the kids were calling in back in the 1400s.
  15. Punishments for lesbians were pretty fucking awful and got worse over time
  16. Most of it is speculation because lesbians in history are virtually invisible and there has never been a complete history of medieval ladylove written ever
  17. But on the bright side, garden sex!

almostperfectalibi:

The leading flank in discovering how to use technology in cool, interesting, thoughtful ways will generally always be the amateurs. […]

I have a whole theory, actually, that the world of fan fiction is the most technologically explosive thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Every single technology that has come along, fan fiction people have come along and colonized it and stress-tested it and found the most amazing things. They were the first people to realize the potential of meta-tagging and bookmarking sites. Like, here’s a link with four tags, and then you go to a fan fiction person, and they have a link, and it has 70 tags. They are pushing this to absolute limit, and they are finding these amazing ways to sort knowledge.

It’s all because they’re passionate and nobody is making any money off of it and they don’t want to make any money off of it. They get some amazing stuff done. If you’re ever wondering about a future technology, just drop what you’re doing and find out what fan fiction people are doing with it. What are fan fiction people doing right now with WhatsApp? I don’t know. But, whatever it is, it’s the future.

trans daja. the mimander said her mother would give birth to a daughter so they’re confused at first. she’s never traditionally feminine but they figure it out slowly and soon all her female relatives are super protective of her and make an effort to include her in things and they put her journey on her staff and teach her to be proud of it

Oh god
This headcanon, I am so entirely here for this
But like someone said in the comments, think how much more horrible that makes her introduction: losing Third Ship Kisubo meant losing the staff that commemorated her journey, it meant losing the only people who really understood her, it meant losing a community that truly welcomed her…

*sniff*
