I'm a guy from New York, I'm 21, and enjoy many things. What kind of things? Well, I guess you'll have to ask me. MUAHAHAHA!

Heqet (Heket)
A goddess of childbirth and fertility, depicted as a frog, or a woman with the head of a frog. According to one tradition, she was the wife of Khnum, the creator god of Abu (Elephantine). He created each person on his potter’s wheel, and she breathed life into them before they were placed in their mother’s womb. Pregnant women wore amulets depicting Heqet for protection, and during the Middle Kingdom ritual ivory knives and clappers inscribed with her name were used to ward off evil during childbirth. She could also bring on labour and offer protection during labour. 
Heqet was depicted as a frog because, to the Egyptians, the frog was a symbol of life and fertility, since millions of them were born after the annual inundation of the Nile.

Xipe Totec “our lord the flayed one” as pictured in the codex Borgia. He’s also known as Red Tezcatlipoca. His direction is east. He is a god of agriculture, life-death-birth, and fertility.
He represents renewal and spring, as well as the growth to manhood for young men. Worshiped especially during the rainy season in March. The sacrificed were foreign warriors, often captured, and forced to participate in a gladiatorial games. He was then tied to a rope and given little to defend himself while he fought off four richly dressed Aztec warriors.
After the gladiator lost, he would be cut open and his still beating heart would be given to Xipe Totec according to Sahagun of the Florentine codex.

A comment replying to my Ebola post, an idiot said this.. “Or America has the money and sanitation that Africa doesn’t have and that’s why the two Americans lived”…. Below is a tiny collection of images of the Africa they refuse to show you..

I really am sorry that you have reached this far in life, brainwashed by your media believing that Africa looks like the image below.. I really do sympathize with you,

Stop making Africa the poster child for poverty, poverty is everywhere, and if you ever paid attention, you might notice that it’s closer to home than you think!!!

Remember Wendy Davis?

image

You know, the badass democrat who fillibustered for 11 hours straight to conserve women’s rights in Texas?

image

Well, this wonderful and amazing woman has announced her campaign for Texas governor!

image

Let’s show her some goddamn support!

Her opponent, Greg Abbott, is all about “traditional values.”

 What fucking good have “traditional values” ever done for anyone?

Not a goddamn thing, that’s what. Vote for Wendy Davis.
