"You can’t just change the race of cultural icons like Captain America! It’s an important part of their identity and message!"
Jesus: Ah yes.
Jesus: Can’t imagine who would do that.
Jesus: What a shame.
fun fact Jesus Christ was changed to be overall more “white” looking in the 1500s as part of a media campaign by Alexander VI, also known as Rodrigo Borgia. as a Spaniard and foreigners to Italy looking to gain power and prestige (and also vying for a spot as the Pope,) Rodrigo often commissioned art of Jesus Christ to look remarkably like his son, Cesare Borgia. a lot of scholars felt that Rodrigo thought it would make his son more popular and more acceptable to the Italian population (Cesare was a warlord so this was a pretty vital step) so the curlywavy white Jesus with the artfully trimmed beard is actually a phenomenon that can be traced to a very specific and very political motive. so white!jesus has nothing to do with jesus being white in the time that he lived, it was part of the Borgia propaganda machine.
Having played Assassin’s Creed makes this five times more infuriating.
I highly disbelieve that number. I and most of the people I know have been out of uni for about 10 years, and there’s no way 1/3 of us have found soulmates yet, much less found them at school. Where did that number come from?
Yeah I don’t actually believe it either - it was a piece of information that I was told whilst at university (by not the most reliable of sources) that I remembered recently and thought was kinda funny.
Turns out there are tags full of people in who wanna hold hands with someone. Maybe we should form a chain or something
So I nearly got together with a friend a couple months ago, very little ended up happening but out of all the things that did my favourite was holding hands with someone. That was really nice.
