John's assorted reblogs
I’ve been challenged

My time is coming: I have been ALS Ice Bucket Challenged. But I want to donate to more than just one charity, since there are lots of causes that I support and this is a very public way to call attention to them.  

Some of the ones I’m considering are:

Alsa.org (obviously)

Michael Brown Memorial Fund

Boston Area Rape Crisis Center 

Charity Water

and then my go-to standards:

Planned Parenthood

The American Civil Liberties Union

Doctors Without Borders

Does anybody (*cough petpluto cough*) have suggestions for charities/funds/organizations/etc?

"Anne Bonny and Mary Read were pirates, as renowned for their ruthlessness as for their gender, and during their short careers challenged the sailors’ adage that a woman’s presence on shipboard invites bad luck."
Sculpture by Erik Christianson.

I’m not entirely sure that the statue really needed to have a tit out.

How dare women try to have nipples.

Actually I’ve seen this before and I can tell you— it’s because these women were bad ass pirates and when they killed someone they’d expose one or both breasts so that when their victim died, (s)he knew that they were killed by a woman.

ACTUALLY Anne Bonny purposely wore loose fitting clothes and displayed her breasts openly at all times during battle - mainly because men were distracted by them, and she took pleasure in killing said men while they were too busy staring at her breasts. Mary Read dressed mainly as a man (after posing as her deceased brother, Mark, for the entirety of her childhood) and both ladies cross-dressed from time to time, hopping between ships. They were known as the ‘fierce hell cats’ due to their ferocious tempers, and were key elements to Captain ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham’s crew - they were the only two known female pirates in the Golden Age of Caribbean piracy. IN FACT, when the ship was captured by the British Navy, Anne and Mary were the ONLY TWO pirates who fought while the males of the crew hid - they were all tried to be hung as pirates but Bonny and Read were both pregnant and were pardoned.
Calico Jack was a lover to Bonny, and as he was to be hung, Bonny’s final words to him were, “Had you fought like a man, you need not be hung like a dog.” Bonny and Read were possibly two of the most badass fucking pirates and they were FEMALE. The more you know.

Mrs. Peacock:  SENATOR’S WIFE

(Bombay Sapphire, Island Punch Pucker)

Well, someone’s got to break the ice, and it might as well be me. I mean, I’m used to being a hostess, after all it’s part of my role as a senator’s wife. And it’s always difficult when a group of new friends meet together for drinks for the first time, to get acquainted, so I’m perfectly prepared to start the ball rolling. I mean, I am determined to enjoy myself. And I’m very intrigued, and, oh my, this aperitif’s delicious, isn’t it? It tastes like my favorite recipe, half Bombay Sapphire and half island punch…

In these dark times, Dr. Nemesis is a consistent source of joy.

He is a torch in the darkness, sputtering and setting things on fire.

I would love to cosplay as Dr. Nemesis, but I can’t bring myself to. hydemc is just too perfect for the role.  Also, everyone needs to read X-Club RIGHT NOW (especially hydemc and witticaster)
