Bailey Jay, Children, and Dumb: Jesuswhat's she weign in at buck 90, 200? Renaissance women weren't forced to starve themselves into an anorexic fashion na uStry marketing version of female sexuality celticpyro: fandomsandfeminism: sofiama: cr1mson5thestranger: rosietheamazon: deadhoneybadger: Yeah that’s why they all died at 30 because they were so unhealthy but cool Pretty sure it was the plague not heart disease. Pretty sure it was the Plague, childbirth, food spoiling, maltreated infections, smallpox, pneumonia, and/or generally unsanitary living conditions (such as dumping sewage and waste in the streets) and not health conditions caused by excess body fat. Not to mention that the Renaissance standard of female beauty being plumpness and full-figured forms came from the fact that it was a status symbol. Plump, pale, full-figured women were wealthy women who didn’t have to spend their days in hard labor or raising children (or both) and stood a better chance of bearing healthy babies than commoner women did. Cultural “Oh Snap” I hate it so much when people pull out the “unhealthy” excuse for having a reason to body shame a person. “Women died young in the 1700s because they were fat” is an amazingly ignorant statement Okay that one response was dumb but first of all there’s absolutely no way the woman in that painting is 190-200 lbs unless she’s on the taller side. Yeah Renaissance women were full-figured but they weren’t obese.Secondly, it was a beauty standard because it was a sign you were rich enough to eat a lot and not have to work off the extra calories. So it wasn’t that women typically looked like that, it was an equally unrealistic standard back then as it is today because most women didn’t have the means to put on extra weight unless they were filthy rich. But hey let’s glorify beauty standards when it personally benefits you, right?Third, you’re really gonna put someone down for body-shaming when the woman painting is also body-shaming? Anorexia is a mental disorder not a body type and if you conflate the two you’re body-shaming. Using “anorexic” as a synonym for “skinny” is basically the same as using “diabetic” as a synonym for “fat.”So in conclusion, this whole post is garbage. It’s like when they try to label Marilyn Monroe and other of her contemporaries as “plus size”. Just stop. She was curvy yes, but she was absolutely not anything approaching the modern concept of “plus sized“ or obese.One of these things is not like the other

They had arrived from incredibly unsanitary medieval Europe to a city five times the size of that century's london with a working sewage system artificial "floating gardens" (chinampas), a grid system, and aqueducts providing fresh water. Which wasn't even for drinking! Water from the aqueducts was used for washing and bathing- they preferred using nearby mountain springs for drinking. Hygiene was a huge part if their culture, most people bathed twice a day while the king bathed at least four times a day. Located on an island in the middle of a lake, they used advanced causeways to allow access to the mainland that could be cut off to let canoes through or to defend the city The Spanish saw their buildings and towers and thought they were rising out of the water.

Kimmel was afraid he wasn't down with what they were asking. But he just said, "I don't know, this wardrobe...don't you have anything mesh that I could wear?" When he was filming "Witness" he rented a small farm from a friend of mine. At the end of the filming my friend went and checked out the property as usual. He noticed the barn door had been leveled so it no longer would swing open on it's own. Went into the house and saw the closets had been redone, in the kitchen the cabinets had been replaced and all the drawers now opened really well. Turns out that there were thousands of dollars of work and materials put into fixing up everything at the place. My friend called Ford and asked him how much he was asking for the work. Ford told him doing that kind of thing helped him relax and stay sane when he was filming. Would not take a dime. Plus he paid for a new water heater and got the sewage system cleaned out And he paid rent to live there the entire time #1 love him :Harrison ford This is a Harrison Ford appreciation post

Animals, Blessed, and Cats: POLICE SEIZE 10 CHILDREN FROM OFF-GRID' HOMESCHOOL FAMILY <p><a href="http://alex-serthes.tumblr.com/post/119571602837/thisistraditionalwhiteculture" class="tumblr_blog">alex-serthes</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://thisistraditionalwhiteculture.tumblr.com/post/118460472244/oliviatheelf-police-seize-10-children-from" class="tumblr_blog">thisistraditionalwhiteculture</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://oliviatheelf.tumblr.com/post/118460046730/police-seize-10-children-from-off-grid" class="tumblr_blog">oliviatheelf</a>:</p> <blockquote><h2><b> POLICE SEIZE 10 CHILDREN FROM ‘OFF-GRID’ HOMESCHOOL FAMILY: Authorities targeting Americans with traditional, rural lifestyles!!<br/></b></h2>“<b>Police seized ten children from an “off grid” homeschool family in Kentucky on Wednesday after receiving an anonymous tip about the family’s traditional lifestyle.</b> The nightmare story began when sheriff’s officers set up a blockade around Joe and Nicole Naugler’s rural property before entering the premises. Eight of the kids were out with their father but Nicole and two of her oldest children were at home. Nicole attempted to drive away but was subsequently stopped and arrested for resisting (attempting to prevent officers from taking her two boys away). The sheriff then demanded Joe Naugler turn over the other eight children by 10am the next day or face felony charges, an order with which he complied. “They are an extremely happy family,” said family friend Pace Ellsworth, who asserts that the Nauglers were targeted because of their “back to basics life” and their decision to homeschool their children. Friends reported no concerns about how the children were being treated by the parents, who follow an educational model called “unschooling” where the children decide their own curriculum based on the subjects that interest them and what their strengths are. <br/>“This is the natural way to live,” said Ellsworth. “It’s actually a growing movement. They want to have a personal education and not a factory education. They are completely open about their life. Everyone is learning by living. They are all extremely intelligent.” The<b> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/MyBlessedLittleHomestead">family’s Facebook page</a> </b>– entitled “My Blessed Little Homestead,” is a charming testament to their way of life. The Naugler children are obviously living a blissful “free range” lifestyle amongst 26 acres of land in Breckinridge County. “They frequently post pictures and videos of their children, animals and their off-grid life,” reports <b><a href="http://www.offthegridnews.com/current-events/police-seize-10-children-from-off-grid-family-because-theyre-homeschooled/">Off the Grid News</a></b>. “A May 5 post showed a video of a toddler, Mosiah, learning to walk. An April 24 post showed a happy family, gathering around a campfire, roasting marshmallows.” The family have set up a <b><a href="http://www.gofundme.com/tz4xng">GoFundMe page</a></b> to try and raise money for legal expenses. <br/>A <b><a href="http://www.saveourfamily.info/">website for the family</a></b> spells out their plight with the heart-wrenching words; “This Kentucky family of 12 people, 6 dogs, 2 farm cats and a few random farm animals was just torn apart. Their crime: Living a simple, back to basics life.”This shocking story once again illustrates how families attempting to simply get on with their lives in a traditional manner are being treated as extremists by other Americans, snitched on, and targeted by authorities.Meanwhile, in New Jersey, a <b><a href="http://www.wnd.com/2015/05/homeschoolers-interrogated-on-guns-vaccines/">WND report</a></b> highlights how parents were interrogated by a CPS caseworker who questioned Christopher Zimmer and his wife Nicole, “on everything from their son’s homeschool education to questions about vaccines and guns in the house.”Michelle Marchese aggressively demanded to enter the property after asserting Christopher Zimmer Jr. was not getting a “proper education.” Police subsequently arrived and allowed Marchese to enter the home before conducting a warrantless search.The Zimmers are now suing the CPS for $60 million in a case before the U.S. District Court in Trenton.”</blockquote> <p><b>PLEASE SHARE TO HELP THIS FAMILY!

America, Community, and Energy: Florida Makes Off-Grid Living Illegal Mandates All Homes Must Be Connected To Electricity & Water Grid <p><a href="http://rtrixie.tumblr.com/post/110082577699/thinksquad-robin-speronis-lives-off-the-grid-in" class="tumblr_blog">rtrixie</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://think-squad.com/post/110070574400/robin-speronis-lives-off-the-grid-in-florida">thinksquad</a>:</p><blockquote><p>Robin Speronis lives off the grid in Florida, completely independent of the city’s water and electric system. A few weeks ago, officials ruled her off-grid home illegal. Officials cited the International Property Maintenance Code, which mandates that homes be connected to an electricity grid and a running water source.</p><p>That’s like saying our dependency on corporations isn’t even a choice. The choice to live without most utilities has been ongoing for Robin, the self-sufficient woman has lived for more than a year and a half using solar energy, a propane camping stove and rain water.</p> <p>In the end, she was found not guilty of not having a proper sewer or electrical system; but was guilty of not being hooked up to an approved water supply.</p> <p>Speronis is still being hassled by the municipality of Cape Coral for not having a connection to city water, nor proper sewage. That. regardless of the fact the city capped her sewers themselves.</p> <p>Is Off-Grid Really Illegal?<br/> In essence yes. To live off the grid means to not have to hook up to any corporate or municipal utilities. If a municipality makes it illegal to disconnect from any given utility, they are in essence making off grid living illegal.</p> <p>“It means living independently, mainly living independently of the utility companies. Providing your own power. It does not mean living in the stone age, it’s not about bush craft. It’s about generating your own power, your own water, dealing with your own waste. Probably as part of a community, not living on your own like a hermit. It’s also about being more self-reliant and being less dependent on the system. Perhaps realizing that the system isn’t really protecting us anymore and we have to look after ourselves.” – George Noory</p> <p><br/> Sources:</p> <p><a href="http://america.aljazeera.com/watch/shows/the-stream/the-stream-officialblog/2014/2/25/florida-court-challengesoffthegridliving.html">http://america.aljazeera.com/watch/shows/the-stream/the-stream-officialblog/2014/2/25/florida-court-challengesoffthegridliving.html</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.offthegridnews.com/2014/02/22/court-rules-off-the-grid-living-is-illegal/">http://www.offthegridnews.com/2014/02/22/court-rules-off-the-grid-living-is-illegal/</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.collective-evolution.com/2014/03/09/florida-makes-off-grid-living-illegal-mandates-all-homes-must-be-connected-to-an-electricity-grid/">http://www.collective-evolution.com/2014/03/09/florida-makes-off-grid-living-illegal-mandates-all-homes-must-be-connected-to-an-electricity-grid/</a></p></blockquote> <p>This might not seem like much, but it is a massive frontal assault on freedom. You can no longer choose to supply yourself with water and electricity, even if you have the means to do so, nor can you really choose to live in a remote place anymore. Essentially, this is telling you that you must not be self sufficient, but rather depend on external services. <br/></p><p>Reminds me of an article from Britain, where a couple was ordered to destroy the hut they built, as it was illegal to live outside of settlements without a good reason - why can’t that reason be living on my land, the way I want to?<br/></p></blockquote>
