Oookay great many people have reblogged that article such that my dash is a wall of it.

Friends, Romans, barbarian hordes who disrupted the Romans, to paraphrase the incredibly intelligent terrasigillata: “the past did not exist to validate your modern feminism.” 

Even if women warriors were definitely a thing, early medieval Scandinavia was not a feminist utopia by any means. Like, settlement-period Iceland had pretty solid laws regarding rape and harassment and divorce, or at least, peering through the lens of the sagas and laws written down years after, we think they did, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they were enforced. See also: penalty for crossdressing in the Grey Goose law book vs the penalty for murder (hint: PERMANENT EXILE).

There’s also, in the WOMEN WARRIORS spin, the sort of dismissal of women who weren’t warriors. Women have always always always been extremely important, who cares if they picked up a sword or not. Defining the importance of women by their participation in what we perceive to be traditionally masculine activities? Um, how about we not do that.

whenever i get an essay assignment i immediately go “how can i work a feminist and anti capitalist rant into this”

How about focus on the fucking essay and not make everything about your passions? You don’t see me making a rant about whales in every fucking essay I get.

i study sociology and politics, its always relevant you fucking weirdo. go fuck a whale or something.

I think that Demisexuality and polyamory/polysexuality fall more under sexual preference than sexual orientation, since you could be any orientation and still be demi/poly

ngl i’m always super suspicious when people, especially straight people, loudly identify themselves as demisexual. with straight people it always fees like they’re trying to hijack a queer identity for, basically, internet argument points,

it’s always nice to have a label you can slot yourself under for some solidarity, but please do not pretend that anyone ever fought for your right to use that particular label in safety. no one is going to fire you or deny you housing or systematically refuse you access to basic human rights solely because you take a little time with your relationships or because you want to be friends first…especially not if you’re otherwise completely heterosexual…

I need recommendations for ambient black metal. And melodic black metal. And horribly ugly raw black metal. And blackened death.

Just give me many of the black metal, as long as it is not blackened thrash.

Deathspell Omega is my fav. mainly the album/EP Kénôse.
they are philosophically satanist but don’t seem to have any really objectionable stuff, no neonazi or other fascist bullshit afaik. great sound. very atmospheric, very ominous but cathartically so.

Dornenreich, especially the album Her von welken Nächten.
a little neofolky, less ambient. great stuff.

Blut aus Nord, especially The Work Which Transforms God.
good sound, alternating moody and ambient with unrelenting guitar and blastbeats. publicly dissociated from nationalism

i like Belenos - Errances Oniriques. 
apparentlyharmless nonhistorical neodruids. black metal, no significant folk influence.

i also like Celestia - A Cave Full of Bats.
straight up black metal sound, but I couldn’t tell you anything about the band.

Darkestrah - Sary Oy.
jaunty & folky at times, but unmistakeably black metal, which is a great mix.

Drudkh - Blood in Our Wells.
drudkh is… kind of sketchy? i mean this album has a song named after ukrainian insurgent army. But they have declared themselves an apolitical band, and they do sing about history, so they’re not necessarily promoting or defending everything they did. But that sounds like a weak excuse. I listen to them anyway because I had the album already and they’re not, like, burzum-tier awful. It’s your call i guess! Anyway they have a rough, classically lo-fi black metal sound tinged with ukrainian folk music.

Primordial - A Journey’s End
Irish folk black metal. Very dark, atmospheric, melencholy. Seem like fine people. Great album. Singing style might take some getting used to, I’ve known people not to like it, but it fits sooo well imo.

apologies if you know any of these already and i sound patronizing!!

Nah it’s okay, I did know quite a few of these but - Darkestrah are from Kyrgyzstan, you say? And they have a single-song half-hour-long album? And it opens with waves crashing? Hello there

yaaaass
also the middle track on sary oy is just… i don’t even know how to describe it. it’s like the more polka-y folky bits of older finntroll, but as an entire song. and it’s like… slightly jazzy? and then suddenly a short burst of guitar and mouth harp at unrelenting speed and then back to this light, jaunty, acoustic walking music. i do it no justice
