TRUGANINI: THE LAST “FULL BLOOD” TASMANIAN
In May 7, 1876, Truganini, [erroneously considered to be] the last “full-blood” Black person in Tasmania, died at 73 years of age. Her mother had been stabbed to death by a European. Her sisters were kidnapped by Europeans [and sold into slavery]. Her intended husband was drowned by two Europeans in her presence, while his murderers raped her.
It might be accurately said that Truganini’s numerous personal sufferings typify the tragedy of the Black people of Tasmania as a whole. “Don’t let them cut me up,” she begged the doctor as she lay dying. After her burial, Truganini’s body was exhumed, and her skeleton, strung upon wires and placed upright in a box, became for many years the most popular exhibit in the Tasmanian Museum and remained on display until 1947.
Finally, in 1976–the centenary years of Truganini’s death–despite the museum’s objections, her skeleton was cremated and her ashes scattered at sea.

But that’s not the end of the story. After demands from Tanzania’s Aboriginal community, the British Museum returned Truganini hair and skin samples in 2002 (along with bones from other unidentified aborigines). Yet, about 30 copies of the bust of her made by an English sculptor remain on display around the world.

From what i understand,many fans are upset[or happy] about SMG choosing Angel over Spike and now there is a renewed shipping war,but what we all need to remember is

a) every person has his/her own different opinion and even if it’s the actress herself that prefers a pairing over the other it doesn’t mean that’s the endgame,

b) as you can see above she clearly has nice things to say about both relationships and the fact that she prefers Bangel,doesn’t mean she hates Spuffy and

c) shipping wars are needless and unnecessary and we should all just enjoy the show and yes,of course,debate and discuss,but not by offending those who have a different ship.

In the end we all belong in the same fandom.

I don’t care why I’m queer.

I don’t care why you’re queer (or not).

I don’t care how (if?) our brains cause us to be this way.

I don’t want anyone to research why I’m queer.

If they research it, they’ll find a cause. If they find a cause, they’ll look for a cure.

That is an illogical conclusion.

milkedmothprincess:

I’m launching a limited printed shirt campaign as part of my transition fundraising. Donate $65.00 or more and you, too, could be as BUNCORE as I am!

I’m making twenty shirts for this campaign, and will only ever make one more for myself. They’re hand stenciled, hand sprayed, and the text is applied freehand. They will be numbered (x/20), and will be absolutely fucking rad as hell.

Being a depressed, working poor trans girl can be difficult, so consider either donating for a shirt, or giving a dollar, or even just signal boosting by reblogging this or posting a link to my gofundme on your personal blog!

In order to secure a shirt, go here, donate $65.00+, and select the BUN TIER as your donation level. Please tell me your shirt size or torso measurements, and I’ll have it to you before April.

Best of luck!

First ever semester in college!

So I just began my first ever semester of college and I am taking four classes: Fundamentals of Speech, Freshman Comp., Math and ASL. My math prof. is laid back but strict, my Freshman Comp. prof. is a social justice warrior and my Fundamentals of Speech prof. is a die-hard Whovian. I have yet to meet my ASL prof., but thus far, I think I am going to very much like school. B-)
