MANGBETU TRIBE AND SKULL ELONGATION
Here’s something intense.
The Mangbetu tribe elongated their skulls. The custom is called Lipombo. It was a status and beauty symbol but the Belgian government soon outlawed it.
They managed to achieve this by wrapping the heads of newborns tightly with cloth to give them a streamlined look.
that has to be painful.
It kind of reminds me of the foot binding in China. The world had (still has) some intense standards of beauty
Or the neck braces in some parts of Africa, where they stretch the neck to be incredibly long with metal hoops.
Or this strange medical procedure where they cut open chest flesh and insert these silicone gel implants.
Strange world we live in!

i knew this guy in middle school who when asked about his future plans, even by school counselors or teachers would without fail always chant,
KICK ASS, GO TO SPACE
REPRESENT THE HUMAN RACE
i wonder what he’s up to these days.
guarding our galaxy
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson

i looked SO FINE tonight and i talked to exactly zero boys this is so disappointing
girls being kept out of the sciences and pushed into the humanities; the humanities being valued less in our society than the sciences; and the humanities and sciences being looked at as stark opposites that couldn’t possibly be enjoyed for the same reasons are all problems that need to in some degree be tackled together
I was late to my first environmental science lecture, my skirt was hiked up and nobody told me, and I went to the wrong room at first and sat through 5 mins of calculus. I think I knocked all of the first year mistakes out of the way and honestly I feel like I’m in an 80s movie or possibly an anime.
Darren Wilson supporters are the literal worst.
