    EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

    but why

    Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.

    The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

    lgbt persons from india:

    Aditya Bandopadhyay: After studying law in Kolkata, Aditya set up practice in Delhi, earlier with Lawyers Collective and now independently. He now heads ‘Adhikaar’, an advocacy organization working for equal rights and healthcare for LGBT persons. He is the Asia-Director on the board of International Lesbian and Gay Law Association and sits on the steering committee of other international LGBT and HIV organizations.

    Gauri Sawant: From being a young shy boy from a conservative middle-class family to heading an organization of transgenders, Gauri has indeed come a long way. Her leadership qualities were spotted by Ashok Row Kavi when she was working with The Humsafar Trust. She was encouraged to set up her own community based organization Sakhi Char Chowgi, under which she now manages several projects that address both health issues of transgenders and provide livelihood opportunities. Though she is estranged from her own biological family, she has formed a happy family with a partner and a daughter.

    Ashok Row Kavi: Born and brought up in Mumbai, he worked as a journalist in various newspapers and magazines for over 18 years. He then started India’s first gay magazine Bombay Dost and later founded The Humsafar Trust, one of the largest male sexual health agencies in India. He was the first person in India to come out openly as a gay man and has been a vocal advocate for gay rights and equal health facilities for gay and transgender persons.

    Ruth Vanita: Ruth says she was never confused about her sexuality, she only needed time to discover it. After a few years of studying abroad, returning to India and teaching literature, she became part of one of the earliest informal LGBT intellectual circle in Delhi. The excitement of the underground gay & lesbian movement during the 90s is still fresh in her mind and she feels that while the LGBT movement has made rapid strides in the last few years, there still needs a more positive legal and social framework for same-sex couples to have a lasting happy relationship in India. Her defining book ‘Same-Sex Love in India’ with Saleem Kidwai is one of her many literary outings that form the spine of contemporary Indian same-sex literature. She is happily married to her same-sex partner and has a son.

    Parmesh Shahani: He wears his style and sexuality on his sleeve - be it speaking at the high-powered TED conference, signing away his book Gay Bombay, board meeting at his corporate office or a gay party in town. However Parmesh admits to be a late bloomer, becoming comfortable with his sexuality only after meeting Riyad and Roy Wadia and going abroad to study at MIT, Boston. He is now back in India and heading a thinktank called Culture Lab.

    Laxmi Narayan Tripathi: Laxmi has always loved the limelight. As India’s most visible and controversial Hijra (transgender), she has balanced working for the community at the grassroots as an activist with using her glamorous celebrity image to push the envelope right upto an UN task force meeting. Never afraid to speak her mind, she also is perhaps one of the few Hijras who stays with her biological family and is accepted by them.

    Manvendra Singh Gohil: He is the first Indian royalty to ever come out as a gay man. It took him many years of internal struggle, a failed marriage and an inspirational bonding with Ashok Row Kavi, before he veered away from being a lawyer to an activist. He set up Lakshya Trust which is now acknowledged as one of the best CBOs in Gujarat. He was the third Indian to be on Ophrah Winfrey Show and he has even led pride parades in Stockholm. 

    Geeta Kumana: For Geeta, it has been an eventful ride - from being a windsurfer to being an activist to a businesswoman - but she has glided through it all rather smoothly. Her first brush with the lesbian community was at Stree Sangam, but Geeta soon founded her own organization Aanchal Trust, which was perhaps the first lesbian organization in Mumbai to have an office, hire professional staff, run a counsel & distress helpline and even have a lesbian radio spot on air! Geeta soon became the one and only out visible lesbian in Mumbai.

    R. Raj Rao: Raj’s contribution to writings and discussions about Indian queer literature is immense, though he himself hates being branded as a queer writer, because his work expands and grows beyond it. His writings reflect the angst and passion of the Indian middle and lower middle class gay men whose sexuality is often subsumed within the patriarchal traditions. Raj is one of the few out gay Indian professors; he also runs a queer literature study course at the Pune University where he has been teaching for almost two decades.

    Often QPOC get ignored in favour of white people during conversations about gender and sexuality, so I guess this is my attempt to try and push for greater visibility of lesser known people of colour in the LGBTQ movement in other parts of the world and try to debunk the notion that LGBTQ movement is primarily a white one.

    He called on parents to take responsibility for their sons’ actions, saying parents must teach their sons the difference between right and wrong.

    "When we hear about these rapes our heads hang in shame," Mr Modi said.

    "Young girls are always asked so many questions by their parents, like ‘where are you going?’. But do parents dare to ask their sons where they are going?" he asked.

    Those who commit rape are also someone’s sons. It’s the responsibility of the parents to stop them before they take the wrong path,” he added.

    Okay, say what you want about him, but this is a big deal. This is Prime Minister Modi’s first Independence Day address since being elected. And instead of using this time to talk about Pakistan, like every other Independence Day speech in the past, he stood up there and talked about INDIA’s need for improvement. And amongst his topics, he talked about rape.

    And he didn’t describe it as “accidental” or “boys making mistakes”, and he didn’t state that women need to “dress more dignified”, all of which have been said by other Indian politicians. For once, we’re hearing someone put the blame on the rapist, and actually calling out parents to raise their sons properly. Like everyone else, I’m still hoping Modi isn’t another PM who is all talk.

    This is the same guy who basically condoned the massacre and displacement of thousands of Muslims in the 2002 Gujarat riots, though.

    Witnesses say they asked Britney why she shaved her head and her response was, “I’m tired of plugging things into it. I’m tired of people touching me.”

    i can never not reblog this

    T-Pain: “That was the most beautiful thing in the world. Do you know why she was shaving her head? Because it was so important to other people. She is like, “Listen. Don’t touch my hair anymore. Stop touching my hair.” People were like, “We’ve got to make your hair before you go outside. You can’t leave.” She went … “Now I don’t have hair. What you going to do?”

    The older I get the more her breakdown seems less ‘unbalanced’ and more ‘completely understandable’
