I’ll never understand people who don’t drink alcohol
Maybe they know what alcohol can do to people, maybe they fear liver failure, maybe they had a family member or friend that died from an alcohol related accident, maybe they don’t feel the need or desire to drink, it’s really not that hard to comprehend
fucking thaNK YOU
And maybe just maybe because some people respect their religion that forbids drinking alcohol..
and maybe some people just don’t like the taste. It is an actual thing you know. To not like the taste of something so then they won’t ingest the thing
and maybe some people have a genetic mutation that prevents the enzymes that break down the alcohol to do their job, resulting in the build up of acetaldehyde, which is a result of hangovers. and these people get really bad hangovers after two drinks, so they avoid alcohol consumption.
and maybe some people have serious health problems like high blood pressure and tachycardia and as a result cannot actually imbibe alcohol without having to take other medication or possibly being sent to the hospital.
And maybe some people are actually allergic to alcohol, this is a real thing, thank you very much.
and maybe some people have traumatic experiences concerning alcohol such as rape or massive car accidents and as a result cannot drink without getting a PTSD flashback.
and maybe they chose their lifesaving medication that is contraindicated with alcohol over their ability to drink alcohol.

I love this book so much.
Renu Massage Therapy and Day Spa in Madison – The best massage therapy in Madison for the best prices
If you are local to Madison, I just want to plug Magdalena Cerrina’s massage practice at Renu. The spa is bus-accessible and specifically LGBTQ-friendly, and Maggie did a great job last time I was in loosening up my awful pregnancy legs. I’m going in tomorrow morning before I see a nearby chiropractor; hopefully it will make for a more productive adjustment!
Maggie rules at all things.
I don’t block for drugs entirely so a separate tag would be helpful to me.
Racism and Paganism do NOT mix, they are like oil and water. If you identify as a pagan or heathen but incorporate racism in to your path then you should be ashamed.
The original people who practiced any European pagan religion were white people who would literally rather brutally murder any non-white than hold hands with them and sing kumbaya.
Liberal “pagans” should be ashamed because their political ideologies support the destruction of the culture and race that their religion comes from.
According to Ahmad ibn Rustah, the pagan Rūs “have a most friendly attitude towards foreigners and strangers who seek refuge.” The Rūs also had no problem allowing Ahmad ibn Fadlan to attend a chieftain’s funeral and talking to him through an interpreter. I wonder if you might have any sources for your alternative interpretation other than personal fantasy.
Or, you know, the Roman Empire maybe?
But despite Hollywood’s near-complete refusal to acknowledge it, ancient Rome was the original melting pot. See, back then, color and prejudice weren’t linked — unlike racism and stupidity today. […]There are no exact numbers on ancient Roman diversity, but given Rome’s constant contact with Africa and the Near East, the coliseum we asked you to imagine earlier should look more like Ellis Island and less like a Dave Matthews Band concert.
That’s from Cracked.com, by the way.
I smell a volkish asatru in that second post down, since their post is a particular flavor of racist nonsense (the singular “culture and race” where paganism “came from”? Hahahaha miss me with that.)
But the OP is pulling a “no true Scotsman,” as well. That doesn’t help root out either overt or structural racism in pagan communities.
The now-iconic duo of Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner were created when legendary cartoonist Chuck Jones, brainstorming idly in a cafe, grabbed a pen and a napkin and quickly doodled eight years’ worth of fully-inked cartoons featuring them.
PERFECTLmao at lemme call sway. Did jules make this?
I love this proto-Blue Ivy meme with all my shriveled little heart.
I love this actually.
I am still new at layering. How does one layer skirts?
Honstly I am not great at it yet.
I’ve tried a few times and failed.
I’m gonna try again though. I will let you know how it works out.
when I layer skirts (which is less often now than when I was in law school) I put a long cotton or silk wrap skirt over a heavy velvet underskirt. The underskirt only shows a little bit, so that may not be what you’re going for?
