What I love about social justice white people

sage-kun:

juxtapiration:

is every time my friend gets stop to be told off by some white person, very rudely, how his tattoo of a dreamcatcher is racist and insensitive to the Native American people and should removed/apologize/be ashamed.

He is Native American and they confuse him for Mexican every time, and he just states “But I got this at the reservation I lived in for 15 YEARS.” and proceeds to falsely place a curse of his ancestors on them.

How to draw a Cretan Labyrinth
The Labyrinth is a symbol used by both Christians and Pagans alike as a means to meditate. The unfortunate thing is that since the purpose of them is to literally get lost, that makes them hard to draw. (Even for someone who is artistically inclined like me.) So here’s a little tutorial on how to set up a grid and make a labyrinth, complete with crude drawings by yours truly!
1. Set up the grid. You can use graph paper if you’re so inclined. Make a + and then right angles inset into that cross and a dot marking the next part of the grid. 
2. Connect the topmost part of the inner + to the topmost part of the inset angle. 
3. Next, connect the top of the left angle to the rightmost dot.
4. And then the leftmost dot to the bottom end of the rightmost angle. 
5-8. Continue moving down the left side, connecting to the right side until you’ve reached the bottom. You want to keep your ‘hallways’ even in width, which is the tricky part and mostly that comes with practice. 
9. Make one final connection to the bottom of the angle and the bottom of the cross by going the looooong way around. This will leave an opening and you have a labyrinth!

medievalwitch asked: I personally think your tree of life pendant is beautiful. And if anything yours would probably sell a lot better than those "professionally made" because each one you make is unique in its own way and the person buying it will have that satisfaction of knowing no one else has one exactly like it, as opposed to mass produced one's that all look identical... I mean especially on etsy when why it is so popular in the first place is because people sell hand made things that are original.

I agree with you, and Thanks for the uplifting message, I really appreciate it. :)
