WOMEN’S HISTORY ✷ENHEDUANNA (2285 – 2250 BCE)
Enheduanna was a daughter of Sargon of Akkad, the Akkadian emperor who conquered most the Sumerian city states. (The Akkadians were a Semitic people whereas the origins of the Sumerians are unknown.)
Her father appointed her as the High Priestess of Nanna ("Sin" in Akkadian), the god of the moon. She is best known for composing hymns, some of the oldest that survive. Those that survive mostly concern Inanna ("Ishtar" in Akkadian), goddess of love and war who was often considered the daughter of Nanna.
And maybe everyone out there is a liar. And maybe the whole world is stupid and ignorant. But I rather be in it. I rather be fucking in it than down here with you.
WOMEN’S HISTORY ᛉ VELEDA (? - before 98)
Veleda was a prophetess of the Bructeri, a Germanic tribe from what is now northwestern Germany. In 69, the Batavi rebelled against the authority of the Roman Empire and they were joined by other Germanic tribes. Their leader was Gaius Julius Civilis, a Romanized chief of the Batavi and Auxilia of the Roman Imperial legions. Veleda foretold that the rebellious tribes would triumph over the Roman legions which they did - for a time. The rebellion pretty much ended in 70 after the end of the First Jewish–Roman War and Civilis decided to give up while he was still ahead.

What kind of person mocks hard-working fast food workers who strike and put it all on the line to fight for a living wage?
Well, lets take a look!

unemployed college graduates who lack self awareness:
people like OP are ridiculous
there won’t be any jobs at mcdonalds because when it becomes cheaper to put a tablet or computer in place of a cashier to take your order, that’s what is going to happen… lol
hell, it’ll be a good thing when i go to a fast food place on my lunch break and they don’t mess up my order because i’ll be putting it into a computer
Fast food workers aren’t just cashiers, you know. They’ll still need people to cook the food and clean the restaurant even if cashiers are phased out. And even if they are, it probably won’t be any time soon. Tablets and computers break all the time, yet customers still come in and want their food.
The earth is evil. We don’t need to grieve for it.

Sex positivity means many things, but it does not mean that all sex is positive or enjoyable.
You know I’ve often wondered why it is we have children in the first place and the conclusion I’ve come to is at some point in our lives we realize things are, they’re messed up beyond repair. So we decide to start again, wipe the slate clean, start fresh and we have children, little carbon copies we can turn to and say, you will do things I cannot. You will succeed where I have failed because we want someone to get it right this time. But not me, personally speaking I cannot wait to see life tear you apart.
