I imagine my future home being filled with impressionist style artwork like this.

I want comrades not allies.

Heart attacks symptoms are different for women. I recently learned this. 

Everyone should know these things.

thanks to mainstream media and being unable to show breasts on TV, way too few people know about female signs of cardiac distress, and impending heart attacks. they only know about the “pain in the left arm” male symptom.

i had all these symptoms once and they sent me right to hospital

it was scary bc i didnt know these were the symptoms for female heart issues

I didn’t know this, and immediately sends me down a “WHY?” hole.

It’s that time again! #furrondy running with the reindeer 2014 #kwhale

The first European to glimpse the Pacific from the Americas crossed Panama on foot 500 years ago. Our intrepid author retraces his journey.

Seeing this just made me realize with fresh clarity:  I’ve never seen a similar article that’s along the lines of, “First Asian to discover the Atlantic…” or “First First Nations person to see the Indian Ocean, as we retrace her steps…” I don’t think I’ve even seen, in my own PoC communities, anyone telling the story of the first African to see the Pacific (or, hell, Arctic) Ocean, or even what people discover in their own backyards.  The actual first person to climb Everest (probably a Sherpa).  The actual first person to cross North America on foot.  We may not have enough recorded history to know what it was like for the first person to see South America or Australia or whatever, because it was done so long ago, or even the first since other people got there, like a retrace of the first Polynesians to make it to the Chilean coast, but.  Even we don’t get to know histories and stories—especially of exploration—where white people aren’t the protagonists, except, maybe, Ibn Battuta’s.  Once Europeans see something, it’s really been seen, and nobody counts before that or after.  What about all the PoC who discovered Europe?  (Do we ever talk about Attila as discovering Europe?  Genghis Khan?  Those Phoenician sailors who opened up the tin trade in the British Isles?) What about the first African in China?  The first South Asian in Scandinavia?  Who’s got custody of those stories?  Where can we find them?
