Anonymous said: wearing dreads is not just an african movement, it was a thing in europe for a long time especially amongst pagans. the blog called white people stealing culture spends all day reblogging pictures of white girls and then calling them ugly and racist. i hate this website.
Are y’all honkies gonna ignore that no pagan religion is Europe is older than those created in Africa, India, and other parts of the Middle East? Not to mention in the Americas of the First People.
Dreadlocks have existed before any white person has. How, you ask? Where? In Ancient Egypt on the lovely locking hair of Black people and in India of the Hindi Yogis.
Those are facts and not whiny white tears spewing out white-washed lies out their wazoo.
Somebody said it
Yes, because there is NO controversy whatsoever questioning the race of the Ancient Egyptians.
None at all.
try reading this. or this. or this. or this. or this. or this. or this. ALL of which provide scholarly evidence disproving your theory of black Egyptians. Like, all you have to do is go to this magical place called a library to find it out.
There are multiple theories regarding the race of the ancient Egyptians, so to just straight up say “they were black, you’re wrong” is ignoring a large portion of the evidence that shows that it is very likely that they weren’t.
Your argument also ignores the fact that oftentimes various cultures develop astonishingly similar cultural behaviors, despite not interacting, or having very little interaction.
The point is, you’re completely ignoring a large portion of history and evidence to support a flawed premise, just so that you can make a joke about “white tears” and claim to be right.
Posting rude retorts and calling them “facts” doesn’t make it so.
Also, regarding dreadlocks:
Dreadlocks are associated most closely with the Rastafari movement, but people from many ethnic groups have worn dreadlocks, including many ancient Hamitic people of North Africa and East Africa (notably the Oromo of Ethiopia, and theMaasai of northern Kenya); Semitic people of West Asia; Indo-European people of Europe and South Asia (notably the ancient Spartan warriors of Greece, and the Sadhus of India and Nepal); Turkic people of Anatolia and Central Asia; theSufi Rafaees; and the Sufi malangs and fakirs of Pakistan. Some Neanderthals and Cro-Magnon were also known to have worn locks, as is portrayed in paleolithic cave art in Europe, perhaps for spiritual reasons.
also, this individual was able to gather a good amount of information concerning dreadlocks, including the following:
I know. Check out my tagged/dreads or tagged/dreadlocks to see my views on the issue.
Scandinavian Norse/ Vikings
AD793 - 1050 The Vikings were prolific seafaring warriors from Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Vikings also established farming communities and trade ports all over Europe with their rise.
Viking warriors were said to wear their hair in locks, I believe for reasons similar to other locked warriors, for intimidation (or because warriors are just to darn busy to comb their hair!)
Now, these pieces of history lead me to believe that the nomadic “Aryans” from Central Asia/ northern Iran from 2000 BC and 1500 BC later became (or certain tribes became) the people known as the Celts, and because of the lost cultural history of the Celts after Roman domination, the origination of Vikings in Scandinavia, their occupation of the British Isles and Ireland, and similarities between Celtic and Norse mythology, I’m tempted to speculate that Vikings and Celts also share a deep cultural connection lost to time.
The Celts were a diverse group of people whose empire once spanned the European continent. Archeological digs from Halstadt, Germany to the Orkney Isles of Scotland have uncovered evidence of Celtic settlements as far back as the late Bronze Age (1550BC-1200BC)
Recent archeological digs in Eastern Europe and Asia Minor indicate the possibility that the Celts were not indigenous to Europe at all. This theory is the migratory theory; when applied the Celtics sometime in the millennia of the Bronze Age entered Europe from somewhere in Asia Minor. It wasn’t long before they settled in the region of the Danube River basin and soon began raiding and conquering their neighbors. The Celtic conquest continued until their tribal lands covered most of Western Europe, from the Danube to Rome and westward as far as current-day Belgium.
It is believed that the Druids were the shamans and mystics of the Celts, their dreadlocks holding similar divine significance in their roles as holy people. Some speculate that Celtic warriors sported dreadlocks as an intimidation tactic.
The empire of the Celts had a fast rise, but eventually in the face of Roman domination, they were forced to disperse and/ or assimilate, to Gaul, France, Ireland, Greece, etc. after which they dropped almost entirely off the radar.
whitepeoplestealingculture, you’re not doing anyone any favours by spreading ignorant misinformation, and I hope you can look back later on and see how unbelievably narrow-minded and ignorant you are being.
I happened to be reading Sailor Moon and came across this. Made me think of tumblr lol.
when people say sailor moon herself hated men just show them this
~the black one
I don’t think a lot of Tumblr understands that the feminist views a lot of the women they idolize had were about ACTUAL equality and not hating men. Two examples I can think of are Naoko Takeuichi (I’m so sorry if I butchered her name) and Lauren Faust.
Why are all portrayals of Octavian / Augustus absolute shit?
I’m watching some scenes from HBO Rome, and while I’ve always considered it a guilty pleasure because of how ahistorical and crappy that show is, I’m just realizing how shitty it was.
They should make a good TV series about this, please. So much awesome drama happens, with fascinating characters. Octavian x Livia would be an OTP power couple that should be shown.
The only good portrayal is in Imperium: Augustus, with Peter O’Toole (as Augustus) and Charlotte Rampling (as Livia), but the flashback parts were shit.
I think it is due to modern hate for Dictators who overthrew Democracies so it is very popular to represent Augustus in a negative way I think :/ That the Roman Democracy has become rotten beyond salvation and that Octavian finally brought peace is, of course, conveniently ignored.

This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct
I have yet to see a city where a man is allowed to go topless either… or go bottomless… joking aside, you are supposed to keep your top and bottom clothed no matter the gender -_-;
Whatcha thinking about, Bane?
