More fun facts about ancient Celtic marriage laws: There were no laws against interclass or interracial marriage, no laws against open homosexual relationships (although they weren’t considered ‘marriages’ since the definition of a marriage was ‘couple with child’), no requirement for women to take their husband’s names or give up their property, but comedians couldn’t get married

I just wanna sleep more but I’m in too much pain to sleep
being really into history is cooler than being into math or science… someone who likes math and science is called a “math nerd” or a “science geek” but someone who likes history is called a “history buff” because of their strong, sensual arms
Whenever I read stuff about Israel, Palestine, or Jewry in general, authors often make one common mistake. There is this condensing of Mizrahim into ‘Arab Jews’ which while it holds true that many come from Arab countries, Mizrahim also consist of Iranian Jews, Kurdish Jews and other minorities from the Middle East (and possibly outside of it). Referring to Mizrahim as ‘Arab Jews’ as a catch-all term just results in erasure of said Jewish groups.
What if colleges only made you pay the percentage of tuition that you failed, so if you got an average of 86 for the year you’d only have to pay 14% of the tuition, but if you got a 94 then it’d only be 6%. That way we’d be rewarding the success and even if you flunked the semester, you still wouldn’t have to pay for ALL of the tuition
You are the future.
Please run for president

To understand I think you should read this actual account of antiziganism from a Romani-American, Maria Catherine Trefil. I can tell you for days why it’s offensive, but I feel it’s best to read the words from someone who actually faces this type of discrimination.

I see the sign at the entrance of the thrift store — “GYPSIE’S SPECIAL: 75% OFF EVERYTHING” — and, automatically, my blood is boiling, but I am silent. It’s not the first time that I’ve seen signs like it. From flat-out racism to the encouragement of well-meant, but nonetheless offensive, stereotypes I’ve already heard everything in reference to my people and, previously, there have been few instances, outside of college classrooms, where I felt safe enough to speak out against such things.
Read this. It’s important.
