Queen Hatshepsut of Ancient Egypt. She has a lovely smile for someone who’s been dead for thousands of years.

she wasn’t a queen. she was a pharaoh and wanted to be referred to as such. she even had her statues modeled after the male pharaoh’s statues to state her dominance and authority. she was actually one of the most successful pharaohs in all of ancient egyptian history and she reigned longer than any other woman in power in egypt.

damn no wonder she died and smiled for a trillion years afterwards

The best deodorant you will ever use Seriously. 1/4 teaspoon in each pit and you can sweat your ass off, totally stink-free for like 2 full days. It’s a natural anti-bacterial so those little fuckers won’t multiply and make you smell. Plus it’s cheaper and healthier than any deod you can buy anywhere.
Use equal parts of the following:
-corn starch-baking soda-coconut oil-cocoa butter
With a few drops of whatever essential oil you want, for fragrance. Otherwise it basically just smells like nothing. I use tea tree oil & pine needle oil. Cuz they’re MANLY.
Note - It pretty much turns to liquid if it’s warmer than about 75 degrees. If you want to keep it solid, you can refrigerate it or add a little more corn starch.

Reblogging myself again, cuz I still use this and it’s still awesome

This is what I’ve been using for about a year now and it works wonders. Not convinced it works? My fiance is literally the smelliest human being I’ve ever met when he’s been sweating all day. I made him some with tea tree oil and he now smells nice and mint-ish as the end of the day, even if he’s been outside working. Not to mention it’s cheaper, smells better, better for you AND better for the environment to make your own :D

I'm a white girl and I understand I'm privileged, however the other day I was trying to explain to my class how casting white actors for other cultured characters is racist and was instantly shot down by everyone and the professor who stated I'm not allowed to complain about such things because of the fact that I am white and privileged and I could never understand what that's like so I don't get the right to defend other races. Why did this happen, am I really not allowed to defend others?

Your professor is kind of an idiot because he somehow manages to understand white privilege, white washing, and how racism affects poc etc, but FAILS to accept that it cannot be the responsibility of only people of color to educate white people. Imagine if we lived in a world where his logic was applied, and only the oppressed were allowed to speak of their oppression. 

When people of color are expected to educate white people as to their humanity, when women are expected to educate men, lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world, the oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions.

Also, if your class desires a representative of another race to tell them how movie castings are white-washed simply because they “understand what it’s like” point them in literally any direction, seriously. There is nothing a white person can say about racism that a person of color hasn’t already said, written books about, or protested in the past. But the problems still exist, why? Because people of color are not in a position of power and will likely be ignored, talked over, or silenced when we speak out. The only way to really end racism is not if all people of color speak out about it, it’s if WHITE PEOPLE LISTEN AND EDUCATE EACH OTHER. I applaud you for taking responsibility and using your privileged position to try and make others aware.

You are self aware and self critical, and you are trying to teach others to do the same by example. If your class opposes this crazy notion that a white person should defend another race, that in itself is a symptom of white supremacy. You never claimed to understand what we feel, you simply listened and understand that it’s disgusting when hollywood cast white actors to play historically black roles. 

If it helps you in the future to use this ask to support your argument, by all means sister.
