Dark Ages, Schmark Ages. The De-Textbook cuts through that and so much more fake-fact bullshit.

cloudy with a chance of witch burning

your periodic reminder that a good chunk of Europe basically shat the bed for a few centuries while everyone else kinda did their thing.

I am sorry I’m going to be that person.
This map is extremely inaccurate.
1) China was not going through business as usual China was going through the TANG DYNASTY i.e. the Golden Age of Chinese culture, which would lay down legal and social and poetic norms for the rest of Chinese history. The Tang is so influential that a lot of languages call Chinese people 唐人 (People from Tang.) (We call Chinese people “people from Qin” so.)
2) Japan is _first becoming literate_ during this time period (due to the influence of the Tang they adopt Chinese script), which is a BFD for poetry, religion, politics, society. Japanese court culture develops, which near the end of this period (11th century, around the time Europe enters “high middle ages”) will produce The Tale of Genji (by a totally awesome woman named Murasaki),widely regarded as the world’s first novel because of it’s deft use of irony and social commentary.
3) The southern part of Korea is experiencing the emergence of Unified Silla, a state that will last the entire period and will see the importation of Chinese and Indian buddhism, the construction of the first Confucian college in Korea, and so on.
4) In Mesoamerica, the Mayans are inventing astronomy, writing (the third and final independent invention of writing in human history), and a whole crapload of other stuff. This is the triumph of their culture.
5) The Umayyads in Spain are a massive center of technology, learning, and (comparative) religious toleration.
6) The Eastern Roman Empire, which spans both the green and yellow portions of your map, isn’t doing too badly either, bouncing back after losing territory to the Caliphate.
7) The Polynesians are colonizing the ENTIRE PACIFIC using amazing advanced navigation technology not rivaled until the INVENTION OF GPS.
8) I am not equipped to talk about Sub-Saharan Africa in detail (cue rant about how we never learn about subsaharan africa in the western educational system) but you can bet there are some major, amazing developments going on there too. I’d be shocked if there weren’t.
9) HOLY SHIT INDIA.
10) OMG SOUTH EAST ASIA. SOUTH. EAST. ASIA.
11) THEY WEREN’T BURNING WITCHES IN EUROPE DURING THE MIGRATION PERIOD (dark ages). Witch burning took off in the EARLY MODERN PERIOD, nearly 1000 years after this. Europe was going through some tough shit, which would leave them backwards compared to the rest of the world for 1000 years, but also there were some amazing things happening there, at least have the decency to be like “angry dudes with swords stabbing people” not WITCH BURNINGS FFS.
12) And ABSOLUTELY Islamic Caliphate was a totally amazing flowering of intellectual, artistic, and spiritual culture, a mixing pot between a thousand cultures and languages, and totally amazing. Don’t in any way want to diminish that in any way.

PLEASE ALWAYS BE THAT PERSON

White people will literally tattoo ANYTHING on their bodies. ABSOLUTELY. ANYTHING.

why is she tattooing tea on her? did tea save her life? 

I have this feeling that she doesn’t even know what chai means. Probably thought it was spiritual or something. I’m patiently waiting for her response lmao

CHAI IS THE HEBREW WORD FOR LIFE HOLY SHIT LOOK AT THE PICTURE IT SAYS #Hebrew THE WRITING IS IN HEBREW YA’LL ARE BEING PURPOSEFULLY IGNORANT TO SHAME A “WHITE” GIRL WHO ISN’T EVEN WHITE

AYYYY Jew stepping in here.  Chai (chet-Yud) translates to “Life”. Which is what we say out of respect to the familes of those who die. But most importantly it is a symbol of the jewish religion, this being from the saying “Am Yisrael Chai” translating to “The children of Israel are alive”.  Do you know how awesome it is to see someone embracing my culture? I’ve grown up scared to even mention that i’m jewish to people in fear of being attacked or killed. So to see someone tattoo it on themselves is awesome! I mean yeah the Torah forbids it, but it also forbids most medicines so fuck that. All you SJWs go on about “appropriating other people cultures”. But did any of you think to actually ask a Jew?  No.  You all assumed she had “Tea” tattooed on her because saying you’re open minded is completely different to actually having an open mind.
Here’s a little saying for you by Hillel."he who refuses to learn deserves extinction.”
And you didn’t even try to learn.  
Your Anti-Semitism disgusts me and i hope you learnt a lesson here.ps summer-tryst You have embarassed the hell out of yourself. Enjoy eating your own words since Chai “Isnt even spiritual”.  nahh. it just represents the religion that all monotheistic faiths are built upon.  totally not religious.

Owned.

rightfulqueenofwesteros really should see how wrong she is.summer-tryst has deleted their blog lmfao I hope they still get embarrassed thinking about this.

Honestly, part of the reason why I sometimes get snarky and bitchy when criticizing tumblr pseudo-activism is because in the past I have tried being nice and peppy and polite, and it didn’t fucking work. I tried being the cheerful critic with “Hey guys! I agree that it can be hard to keep your cool when someone is being an asshole, but harassing and/or telling people to kill themselves is not ok, because you could really hurt someone” or “Hey, the treatment of the Palestinians is really horrible and racist, and it’s good we’re learning and talking about it, but let’s also not resort to antisemitism!” or "Beethoven probably wasn’t Black, and the historical evidence for that theory is really shaky, but hey, here are some awesome Black composers and musicians that many people don’t know about!"

And in return all I got was the same anon hate, people calling me a cunt, people telling me to kill myself, an anon stalker who periodically tells me they hope I get raped, and 4edgy8u brats screaming at me about how I’m a traitor to The Cause. And I’ve seen the same happen to other people who have tried to criticize things like US-centrism, misogyny, or antisemitism, regardless of whether they are nice or not. 

Tumblr can write all the 3000 word screeching toddler tantrums that it wants, but the fact is that you can’t support and enable abusers, scam artists, and bullies, while refusing to criticize them because “omg muh 4channers,” and then scream bloody murder when other people decide that they don’t feel obligated to gently lick your anus while offering criticism.

this. I was a lot more patient with people on here until i found out that several of the people on here that I felt uncomfortable about w/r/t their approach to this stuff had been outed as rapists, abusers, etc. and once I began to see how consistent those patterns were, I began to quit caring about how those people felt. I had interacted with many of those people and each and every one of them had found subtle ways to wiggle their way into my conscience to make me feel guilty about something or another, or to make me feel guilty about how I had hurt them in some way, and I spent a lot of time criticizing myself and analyzing myself and destroying my self-esteem in the process. After they had all been outed and I knew that I was not the only person they had done this kind of thing to, I began to see how it’s all a cycle of abuse.

Saying all the right stuff and not being offensive is a very easy game that a lot of really horrible people can play to gain access to more vulnerable victims. This isn’t to say to just be an anti-sj fuckhead, but that if people have a problem with your tone and think they have a place to demand you to feel a certain way despite what your actions actually say for themselves, then you should be very wary of them. Nobody has the right to your brain and emotions. Just because their “heart” is in the “right place,” or because it’s for whatever “good cause,” doesn’t mean a damn thing if they’re wrong and stepping over the boundaries. If anyone tries to pull that shit or say that shit, I can guarantee you every single time that they are either an abuser, or are caught as a victim to an abusive mindset. Trust me, don’t let any of the uwus and cutesiness fool you. It’s not worth your fucking time and well-being, because they don’t give a fuck about your well-being. They don’t care about who you are. You are insignificant to them.

Hey love, I was wondering if you had a tag or know where I can find a bunch of different character building questionnaires? Like the type that ask questions about appearance, past experiences, have they ever -type questions? They pop up from time to time but now that I'm looking for them I can't find any and I don't know where to find them. Thank you for your time! — Anonymous

Aw, hello sweet anon! Sadly I don’t have a tag yet, but these links should help you out:

I DID ALL THE THINGS TODAY EVEN WITH BRAIN FOG

because i visualized a line. i have to do things in a line. after what i just did, what can I do next to get the thing closer to done? and keep going. and think of the order that you did things as a line. and then when you catch yourself doing something else, think “where was i last on the line?” and go back there.

it is less painful. i can live in the moment and do one step at a time. trying to see all the steps to the goal is nearly impossible for me. but i can do focusing on the thing in front of me.

and if the task in front of me is too big and causes brain pain and I want to avoid it? that’s a sign that i’m not ready to do that whole step yet. i need to break it down even further. what do i need to be able to complete this part? make *that* the new next step. 

this method also takes huge amounts of mental energy but it works. i actually accomplish things. i accomplished three important things today

and when i hit a spot when i got stuck and couldn’t continue a line any further? I made a note on my to do list: “Ask X person what this means/how to do it

so I have three assignments that I made Major Progress on until I got to the point where I didn’t know how to continue, and I will ask my course mentor about them tomorrow so I will probably be able to finish them up after that :)

visualizing my own brain processes as geometric shapes and patterns is apparently a Thing That Works for me

The thing I will never be emotionally prepared for no matter how many times it happens when I dress up as the Winter Solider is the little kids dressed up as Captain America. One hugged me around the knees and said “I’ll save you.” Another tugged on my arm until I leaned down, then said in a shy kid voice “I’m still your friend, Bucky.” I’ll never be prepared for these little ones.

They know what’s up with Bucky. They know he’s not a villain, that he needs help and kindness and aaahhhhhh these little kids. They’re so much smarter and more perceptive than most adults give them credit for. 

This is so sweet - I love it and you are amazing

omigosh that’s adorable @___@
