PROMPT: Tarot card (four of swords)

The Chapel of Pietra had the good fortune of hosting the body of Saint Abadon the Unmentionable, but even this could not make Pietra famous. In fact, if anything, it ruined Saint Abadon, a popular martyr among young men, because no one wanted to make the pilgrimage to Pietra. Nevertheless, his followers sent money, and the Capiya Da Saon Abadon was the finest building in Pietra, the walls lined with bas-relief carvings of swords, the stained glass depicting scenes from the life of Saint Abadon, including his vision of Saint Peter for whom the town claimed to be named. (In fact, the name was from the slabs of marble that could be cut from the earth here.) The lineage of the small inland city was too shoddy to support two such lofty saints, and when the town realized its mistake, it split into two towns, Pietra y Abadon, with the now-cathedral sized chapel at its hear, or at the border of Pietra or Abadon, depending on your point of view. At church, the city fathers of Pietra sat on one side, and the younger, more ambitious founding families of Abadon on the other. The poor masses of both towns simply crowded together in the standing room at the back. Saint Abadon, carved of Pietra marble with gilded hair and sword, remained as silent as his own bones.

Beyond the Binary: the new non-binary website!

beyondthebinaryuk:

PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS FUNDRAISER! IT’S A NEW ONLINE MAGAZINE FOR NON-BINARY FOLKS, CENTERING PEOPLE OF COLOUR. 

Help a new UK trans online magazine site get off the ground by making sure we reach our target of £900 in 40 days.

What is Beyond the Binary?

Beyond the Binary will be a submissions-based magazine website, which aims to give non-binary people in the UK the opportunity to contribute and share what they are experiencing, thinking and doing. We recognise that there is a lack of non-binary representation in the media, and that often non-binary people’s voices aren’t heard. Beyond the Binary wants to re-balance that, and give non-binary people a platform.

Beyond the Binary is run by non-binary people, for non-binary people. We already have a Working Group of over 70 members passionate about creating and contributing to the site. Beyond the Binary aims to reach out and be relevant to as many people as possible, which is why we’re focussing on submissions and welcoming people who identify anywhere on the non-binary spectrum from the UK to submit articles or other media on a range of different topics, from real life, discussion and opinion, to reviews, artwork, and fiction. As well as that, we’d like this to be a community resource – hosting events, projects, and lists of safe and inclusive groups and organisations. Interested? We have some submissions information here! 

Why is it important?

Currently, there’s little in the way of representation or work with non-binary people in the UK, so this project is much needed. A lot of voices are coming out of the US, and Beyond the Binary was in part inspired by all the amazing activism and community resources overseas. Having said that, we are also aware that even within this small group of people, the voices who usually get heard are white, and we encourage and welcome people of colour to submit even if they are based outside of the UK.

There is already a lot of excitement behind this project, and some of the Editorial Team working on putting the site together made a video to explain a bit more about themselves and the impact of this project.

We’d love for this site to look and feel amazing. We deserve a space of our own to express our feelings about the stuff that affects us, laugh about our lives, and inspire others. Let’s make it happen.

Donate via our Indiegogo page here, where you can read more about the project and our cash breakdown. We’ll be providing updates every week as well.

Here’s our INDIEGOGO.

Thanks a lot!

J – Ed.

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

Good lord, the fluidity of her movement is mind-bending, jfc

THE STRENGTH

Why is it such a bad thing to be associated with something strippers do? Strippers INVENTED pole dancing. When you talk about getting pole dancing recognized as athletic, don’t you dare disqualify the very people who invented it for being too “sexual” for your tastes.

Jackie Mitchell…a bad ass lady I had never heard of. 

From her Wikipedia page: “Seventeen-year-old Jackie Mitchell, brought in to pitch in the first inning after the starting pitcher had given up a double and a single, faced Babe Ruth. After taking a ball, Ruth swung and missed at the next two pitches. Mitchell’s fourth pitch to Ruth was a called third strike. Babe Ruth glared and verbally abused the umpire before being led away by his teammates to sit to wait for another batting turn. The crowd roared for Jackie. Babe Ruth was quoted in a Chattanooga newspaper as having said:

"I don’t know what’s going to happen if they begin to let women in baseball. Of course, they will never make good. Why? Because they are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day."

Next up was the Iron Horse Lou Gehrig, who swung through the first three pitches to strike out. Jackie Mitchell became famous for striking out two of the greatest baseball players in history.
A few days after Mitchell struck out Ruth and Gehrig, baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis voided her contract and declared women unfit to play baseball as the game was “too strenuous.”[5][10] Mitchell continued to play professionally,barnstorming with the House of David, a men’s team famous for their very long hair and long beards.[11] While travelling with the House of David team, she would sometimes wear a fake beard for publicity.”
TL;DR: teenage girl strikes out two of the greatest baseball players ever, teenage girl gets her contract voided, teenage girl plays baseball wearing fake beard

These guys were so fucking injured by a teenage girl’s awesomeness that they literally threw a hissyfit and hung up a sign that said “NO GIRLS.”
They gave up.
They couldn’t handle it.
Losers. 
Teenage girls are amazing.
