Frederick the Great was Probably LGBTQ

historical-nonfiction:

Frederick William II, Prince of Prussia, had a terrible relationship with his father growing up. Frederick preferred music to martial pursuits and his father thought him effeminate, weak, and unworthy to be heir to a militant kingdom like Prussia. In fact, Frederick Wiliam I often beat his son in public, trying to toughen him up. By 18 Frederick had had enough. He decided to run away with his best friend, and presumed lover, Han Hermann von Katte.

They didn’t get very far before they were discovered, caught, and imprisoned. Frederick was almost executed, but his father’s will unsurprisingly softened. His friend was not so lucky. Von Katte was beheaded and Frederick was forced to watch. They were so close that Frederick was able to beg von Katte’s forgivness, and receive it, before he died. Frederick spent the next ten years under his father’s thumb.

Two brides have become two of the most kickass women in the world by marrying to protest against homophobia in Russia.
Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole. ‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.


holy jesus look at these two warrior princesses
they are my heroes
YOU GO GIRLS

"Oh, you don’t wanna recognize my gender? Okay then lol guess you have to recognize my marriage"

The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored

A couple of days ago, the city of Fayetteville, Arkansas passed an anti-discrimination ordinance that included both gender identity and sexual orientation

wigmund:

Sure enough, the right-wing in the area went batshit. Michelle Duggar, the one who keeps crapping out children and has the show “19 and counting” on TLC, made robocalls to everyone in the city trotting out the familiar “pedophiles in the bathrooms”. I’m gonna go ahead and encourage people to bombard TLC about this blatant bigotry and to try and get the Duggars booted from the channel’s line-up.

Anyways, the ordinance passed 6-2 after city RESIDENTS spoke out in favor by an over 3-1 margin while out-of-town groups tried to stall things and the mayor, Lioneld Jordan, made a nice speech about exactly why the ordinance was needed and why it’s great it passed. Sadly the video doesn’t include the mayor chewing out one of the aldermen that voted against this anti-discrimination ordinance.

The Amya Chronicle’s Kickstarter: One Week Left.

Hello everyone. The Amya Kickstarter is now one week away from its funding deadline. With our tracking sitting at 66% funded, we are still in need of great assistance!

Amya tells the story of Faye, a mute spell-touched who lives a sheltered life as the youngest daughter to a great lord. She is burdened with dark dreams of an apocalypse, and it isn’t long until her tranquil life changes when a fateful encounter with a young man sends her on a spiraling journey of self-discovery.  

As Faye and her unlikely companions pursue an adventure that is greater than any of them could have anticipated, she discovers how heavy the burden she carries truly is. She is to be the pinnacle of the world’s survival or destruction, and must decide if she wishes to sacrifice her own humanity for the world — or the world for her humanity.

Please consider supporting the campaign by either spreading the word or donating. It would mean so much to us! Amya is our dream as well as our passion. We need your help to take it further! Tumblr has been our leading referral for donations, so you guys are making a big difference with each reblog!
