This week’s Sumerian sign is the oh-so-highbrow dur2. The word is often used to refer to the buttocks, but it also means “cleft.” Hence, my interpretation: buttcrack.

chill it’s cos your rare

the entire female population of east asia is rare?

homie ur about to be cooked medium rare and sacrificed

Omg

People who fetishize Asian women as demure and submissive have clearly never been to Asia (or if they have, they never left the vacation resort).

Get it together people.





or were you referring to the other black people dressed ” respectfully ” during that time period that were being attacked with fire hoses and dogs? or maybe the ones getting lynched while white people stood under them, smiling and taking pictures? 
or was it the ones that stood alongside MLK, dressed just as nicely, that got blown up inside of a church?
racism has nothing to do with how ” respectfully ” we dress. it’s about race.
stop making excuses for them you piece of shit.


Yeah just dress more respectably, black people. Like white folks.

White men earned their place in society by dressing so so well. Look how well this powerful white man dresses. Majestic. Stunning.

Look at the elegance and sophistication on display.

So stylish.

White men have had amazing fashion sense through the ages.

This week’s Sumerian sign is ĝeš, which means tree or wood. It’s an important sign that was used a lot.
ĝeš is one of a collection of signs that are written but not spoken as silent signifiers of a noun’s type or class. This sign often appears before objects made out of wood, like weapons or tools.
So in isolation, ĝeš would be pronounced, but if it came before another noun, it would probably be unspoken, meant only as a signal to the reader to help interpret the following sign, since many signs had multiple meanings and pronunciations.
There are a lot of signs that do this. There’s a sign that appears before gods’ names. There’s a sign that goes before birds or bugs (I think maybe the Sumerians classified flying insects as a kind of bird maybe?), a sign that goes before things made of stone, a sign that goes before people’s names, and many more. There’s also a sign that goes after place names. 
When we transliterate these signs, we write them in a superscript to show that they’re silent. For instance, we’d write ĝešaš-te to mean (wooden) chair, even though in the original cuneiform the signs are all the same size.
The closest analogy to English writing, I guess, would be like using capital letters for proper nouns. It’s a way to signal something important to the reader.

straight people are terrifying they can go as far as to give the girl skeleton a pair of bone titties to indicate its a straight relationship

why is there no skeleton dong

cuz male is normal, of course.

Imagine if it wasn’t.
Imagine if every stick figure, animal, monster and/or anthropomorphized character were assumed female and required the addition of secondary sex characteristics to be considered male. We’d have to stick little handlebar mustaches on everything to show that they’re male. Video games would have regular giant monsters and then slightly hairier monsters with large dick bulges.
Instead of putting generic (i.e. male) characters in neutral poses and having female characters in “cute/sexy” poses with a hip thrust out or toes pointed together, we’d have female characters in neutral poses while every male character was posed for maleness by, I dunno, spreading its knees too far apart while sitting on public transportation or something.

Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

How come I didn’t know this

Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.

"Gifted"! Amazing. Like that time the US government gave the Cherokees those lovely smallpox blankets as a thoughtful going-away present.

OH JEEZ THANKS YOU REALLY SHOULDN’T HAVE

hmm, yoga is kind of girly #nohomo let’s rename it so it sounds manlier and make it just for the bros for the bros only

Is this a fuckin joke? Just today, I had seen a Snickers commercial on TV that showed a man wearing exercise clothes (spandex), instructing a group of women doing aereobic exercise. A football player came in with a Snickers and handed this trainer a Snickers. The trainer ate the Snickers, and transformed into a football player. They both left the women because apparently he “wasn’t being himself” for instructing women in such a prissy, sissy sport!! LOL!!! (/sarcasm)
How utterly pathetic that “men” feel so challenged by anything to do with women and considered “feminine,” and they feel the need to assert their masculinity. LOL, yes, what a fuckin joke this is.

this is so sad

Maybe that advertisement is part of a secret misandrist conspiracy to convince foolish insecure men to avoid physical activity and eat excessive amounts of sugary snacks, thereby slowly reducing the population of bros by means of heart disease, diabetes and vitamin deficiency.
The MRAs better get to the bottom of this sneaky murder plot.
