[TW: harassment, threats, stalking, violence, slurs, racism]
So, someone decided to post this submission with a link to medievalpoc to a subreddit called “Tumblr In Action” this morning.
Let’s stop pretending we have no idea where this comes from:
And can we stop pretending as if these supposed “rules” actually mean anything, or are ever actually enforced:
Medievalpoc has received tens of thousands of hits from this particular subreddit from more than 60 separate threads, some of which have hundreds of derogatory comments, using slurs, threats, and racist ‘jokes’.
And it is somehow a “coincidence” that I have had to speak to police four times and make official reports due to threats, stalking, harassment, and other nastiness? That people have followed me around in person without my knowledge or consent because of this?

A few months ago, I went to a big family gathering at my grandparents’s house and ran into a cousin of mine. She seemed much older than the last time I had seen her (oh, the passage of time), so I asked her what age she was. She replied, “Oh, I’m fifteen.” And my immediate reaction?

Let’s take a look at some important Soccer Kisses, together.
This is the Global Seed Vault — a doomsday vault built to save the world from starvation. It was made to ensure that humanity never runs out of diverse sources of food to grow, if-slash-when we totally destroy the planet.
The vault houses over 800,000 seed samples from countries all over the world in a concrete tunnel designed to last 10,000 years, cut into a remote Norwegian mountainside. (Can’t you just imagine an Austin Powers plot set here?)
I did not know this existed and I feel my life is a little richer now that I do know.
