Don't you know my ass is famous?

My name is Daisy, I'm nineteen and study maths at university. I live in England but I was born in Japan. I play piano. I like maths, music, games, Star Wars, Tolkien, Lady Gaga, The Room, Flight of the Conchords, reading, fashion, youtube and tea (no sugar).

good morning

~Oh what a beautiful morning~
~Oh what a beautiful day~
~And on this wonderful morning~
~You know that racists are going to be freaking out~

(Steve, what are you going to be doing now? Why are you stepping down. I must know. I am intrigued.)

THINX Underwear:

OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY

AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:

For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.

AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:

After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.

THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS

LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME

this was taken at the Museum of London, Docklands - it has a large section about London’s role in slavery, and how slavery contributed to modern racism. 

I think that a lot of museums are finally starting to try and take a more proactive stance on how they present their exhibits and information about them.
For more on this kind of arrangement, I high recommend taking a look at these submissions from xanthy-m on the Swedish Historical Museum:



Oh what was that about black ppl in England not being present?
Since BEFORE THE 1500s?
MEANING DURING THE MEDIEVAL PERIOD
So yall “historically accurate” fuckers can be quiet

Some time ago I went to a presentation by a former thesis advisor about female satire written during the long 18th century (It was titled something awesome like “Could Women Be Funny in the Austen Era?” and was more about the social propriety of women being satirists than about whether women were actually funny). During the Q&A I asked if minorities also had trouble representing themselves as satirists and the answer I got was, “Europe didn’t really have minorities back then.” And that’s when I knew I was asking the wrong person. 

^ And that’s how you erase at least 15,000 people from history.
