"you can’t be just friends with people of the gender you’re attracted to"
myth actually true. i, as a bisexual, can confirm that i have no friends.

pansexuals spend their lives in solitude, with only rocks for company

meanwhile asexuals are friends with everyone. literally every single person on the planet. i do not know how i remember so many names

Jan Brueghel the Elder

Folkdance Before the Archdukes

Netherlands (1623)

Oil on Canvas, 130 x 266 cm.

Not only does this depiction of a folkdance performed by the common folk of the Netherlands for a visiting member of the nobility show us a diverse crowd, it also has an example of how disability was depicted in medieval and renaissance European art.

The young man in the foreground running to fetch water almost certainly has Trisomy 21, also known as Down Syndrome. Depictions of both children and adults with Down Syndrome are common and well-documented in early modern artworks, in everyday scenes like this one as well as religious paintings and portraiture. Andrea Mantegna is known to have depicted Jesus Christ as having Down Syndrome in at least three separate painting:

Disability as well as racial diversity is another marginalized narrative in the art history education we most commonly receive in the United States. You can read more about this in On the Antiquity of Trisomy 21: Moving Towards a Quantitative Diagnosis of Down Syndrome in Historic Material Culture by John M. Starbuck, from the Journal of Contemporary Anthropology. You can read a bit more on the Wikipedia page for Themes in  Italian Renaissance Painting, and A History of Intelligence and “Intellectual Disability”: The Shaping of Psychology in Early Modern Europe by C. F. Goodey.

Petition to ban old men from writing books just because they don’t know how to use an iPhone

Petition to have the youth in this country to actually educate themselves instead of spitting out some bullshit they read on some shitty post on facebook that’s untrue, and continues to spread like wildfire.

In 2012, young adults set the record of completing both high school and college and are on course to become the most educated generation in American history. Maybe you should follow the example of ‘the youth in this country’ and do the same.
