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.

I’m writing my essay on cyber-bullying right now

and there was this article that said “anon hate hurts us because when we read it, we don’t hear the attacker’s voice, we hear our own”

and that’s a really good observation.

People who push boundaries creep me out.

People who push boundaries creep me out.

People who push boundaries creep me out.
I don’t care if that boundary is “I don’t want to fuck you” or “I don’t want to talk to you” or “I don’t want to eat this thing you’re offering me” or “I don’t want to go on a date with you” or “I don’t want to be your friend” or “I don’t want to argue about this with you” or “I don’t want to hear your opinion about [some aspect of my appearance or life choices or personality]” or “I don’t want to hug you” or “I don’t want to buy this thing from you” or “I don’t want to be interviewed” or insert example here.
IF YOU KEEP ASKING AFTER I HAVE SAID NO THEN YOU WILL CREEP ME OUT NO MATTER WHAT IT IS YOU’RE ASKING FOR AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT HAS TO DO WITH SEX OR NOT.

say it with me

"trans women are ~women~" 

"trans men are ~men~" 

"trans people (including nonbinary ones) are the gender they say they are”

"purposefully misgendering a trans person doesn’t do anything except make you look like an ass”

"Ready"
Rachel Barenblat
“So the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading bowls wrapped in their cloaks upon their shoulders.” —Exodus 12:34
You’ll need to travel light.
Take what you can carry: a book, a poem,
a battered tin cup, your child strapped
to your chest, clutching your necklace
in one hot possessive fist.
So the dough isn’t ready. So your heart
isn’t ready. You haven’t said goodbye
to the places where you hid as a child,
to the friends who aren’t interested in the journey,
to the graves you’ve tended.
But if you wait until you feel fully ready
you may never take the leap at all
and Infinity is calling you forth
out of this birth canal
and into the future’s wide expanse.
Learn to improvise flat cakes without yeast.
Learn to read new alphabets.
Wear God like a cloak
and stride forth with confidence.
You won’t know where you’re going
but you have the words of our sages,
the songs of our mothers, the inspiration
wrapped in your kneading bowl. Trust
that what you carry will sustain you
and take the first step out the door.
