Butterfly's Wings


Chronically ill, autistic, bisexual, mostly white, feminist, opinionated, academic, lefty scum. Pronouns are she/her/hers.

This blog is a mixed bag of social justice, politics, cool science stuff, pretty pictures, fandoms (such as Star Trek, Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Welcome to Night Vale, Sailor Moon, Avengers, A:TLA/Legend of Korra, My Little Pony, Doctor Who (especially classic Who), Pacific Rim, Game of Thrones, Almost Human, Elementary, Greco-Roman classics), literary quotes, geeky jokes, and pretty much anything else that amuses/interests me or otherwise catches my fancy. Note: Reblogged opinions may not necessarily be ones I agree with. I also reblog ones that I disagree with but still find interesting or thought-provoking.

One day I'll actually go through and properly tag this mess.

Ladies and Gentlemen, craftsmanship. One of the finest examples of taking pride in what you do, and making absolutely sure no detail is too small.

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.

I had kind of a nerd-out this morning. But I felt like everyone needed to know about this.

The way Marie Antoinette was so intent on controlling her image, and the extent to which she was violently punished for it, will always and forever me one of my keenest interests.

If you define liberation as being able to do the things your oppressors do without barriers, you are seeking power, not freedom.

#Repost from @junglebarbiejulia FULL STORY. On the night of August 10 2013 I went to DC for my birthday to go to “Park Place”, an upscale restaurant. Upon my arrival at the entrance, at 11:30pm, before going to stand in the very long line I went to ask a patrolling officer where a nearby restroom was and before I could utter the words, I was met with an elbow and a right punch to my face. I was instantly knock out. My police report (which has changed numerous times this year) say I was arrest and processed at 1:50 am which is 2 hours that I was unaccounted for. I was left on the floor and when I woke up I was bleeding in multiple places with drag marks on my toes, my wrist were cut by the cuffs, the back of my head and arms were lumpy. The officers wouldn’t tell me why I was in jail and I overheard them saying what should we charge her with? We can’t say domestic, we don’t know who she is with. After pleading and begging to go to the hospital, I was met with more hostility before they finally let me go to the hospital the next days upon my release I had a rape kit done because I don’t know any thing that happened to me while knocked out and it came back positive for semen. They sent messages from my phone while I was detained. Internal Affairs came and confiscated my clothing (they never returned them) and they stole my rape kit. As of today I am facing charges for fighting a bouncer outside of the Lima Club, I was never there and its 5 minutes away from Park driving, also 5 officers that responded after I punched the manager to I was apparently Mike Tyson because when I woke up in jail I had the strength and gumption to fight some more officers in there. When the video was requested both clubs said they lost them. They follow me and stalk my home to this day, I have caught DC police trying to get in my home when they thought I had left, even the Baltimore cops help protect them, one in the rape department even asked me out on a date while my face was still battered. I have been trying to tell my story on IG only to find that police officers or this hired by then have been spamming my hashtag #justiceforjulia with blasphemous pictures. Please share her story.

whoneedsfeminism:

I need feminism because a girl in my dorm was raped last year and my university said “there was alcohol involved” so we’ll never be sure what happened. They allowed this guy to live in the dorm the remainder of the year, the police were never contacted. He’s still allowed at the university. Is that what you call being a TRAILBLAZER, University of Manitoba?
