People are allowed to be repulsed by sex.

People are allowed to be uncomfortable with nudity.

People are allowed to be uncomfortable with genitalia, their own or others.

There are so many reasons why people may feels this way, from…

Really? really? you ask for acceptance and then say you are going to scream because I say it’s ok to like sex so make sure not to shame those who do? I reblogged your post because I agree with your original post wholeheartedly.

Ok here is the thing. The issue with the comment you added and many people who added virtually identical comments is that it is making this assumption that asexual and sex repulsed people think it is ok to tell “shame” sexual people. Honestly, the vast majority of them don’t. It isn’t asexual people who are sex-shamers. It isn’t survivors who are sex-shamers. Primarily because they are too busy dealing with the world telling them that they are wrong/broken/frigid/prudes/just need to get fucked/need to find the right man etc etc. Additions like yours while completely true, simply serve to derail the conversation and make it about sexual people. This post isn’t about people who want to have sex, it’s a post to support people who don’t. Your comment is uneccessary and only serves to reinforce the idea that people who don’t like or want sex are boring prudes out to spoil everyones fun. This assumption is a really damaging one and leads to a lot of nastiness to asexual people and others who don’t want sex. Leave this kind of comment for posts that are actually about sex shaming, in this context is irrelevent and serves to re-inforce harmful ideas.

Hello tumblr!!
As a person who owns many bras but doesn’t really like to wear any of them, I thought I would put that excess to good use. So I’m doing a bra giveaway specifically for trans feminine folks! Yay!
All you have to do is be trans feminine and reblog this post to get a chance at having all seven of these cool bras shipped to you for free! (Sorry, but this will only be open to people who live in the US).
More info: you don’t have to be following me to enter, but my blog is pretty cool. I will only count reblogs as entries (mostly to keep things as simple as possible). And if you’re reblogging but not eligible to win, please say so with a caption or something. The bras themselves are either 36A or 34B and range from never worn to lightly used. All are in good condition!
If you have any questions, shoot me an ask! I’ll be accepting entries until August 5th. Good luck cuties!

Please boost even if you’re not entering so we can spread the word!

Boosting!

I know it’s not 1800s week, but this gentleman is currently on display at the Newport Antiques Show in Newport, RI and I didn’t want to forget about him or his fabulous eyebrows by the time 1800s week happened.
John BlanchardThomas Howland
United States, 1850-1857 [x]
Thomas Howland was a resident of Providence, Rhode Island who worked as a stevedore and became the first black elected official in the city when he was elected warden of Providence’s Third Ward. He was denied a passport on the basis that he was a person of “African extraction” and thus “not deemed [a citizen] of the United States” - again, this man was an elected official, in addition to being a citizen with voting rights. In 1857, he and his wife and daughter left Providence for Liberia where his wife became a teacher and Howland worked as a sugar manufacturer. 

That is really cool! I’m going to post this (even though it’s actually an American painting), since this painting’s going to be on display this weekend at the Newport Antiques Show, in case anyone wants to go see it in person!

I’m sorry but… Isn’t this another case of an immortal celebrity?

If this had been anyone except The Rock I could have resisted reblogging but….
Can we just please put him in every single silly action film loosely based on historical mythology pls?

P.S. here’s a vase from 5th Century B.C.E. Greece depicting Heracles slaying Busiris:
