Defiance: goosegoblin: theramseyloft: jurassicjenday: theramseyloft: tinysaurus-rex: iwilltrytobereasonable: cant-hug-every-human: thedeadofflandersfields: Pigeon steals poppies from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Australian War Memorial, Canberra, Australia in order to build a nest beside a stained glass window. @birdblogwhichisforbirds @snitling EXACTLY This is two pigeons, pigeons nest in bonded pairs (notice the first one is checked and its mate on the nest is barred). Usually they don’t make nests nearly so big but I guess if you have the materials, go for it. The nest is so unusually big because the vast majority is a platform to keep the actual nest (just that tiny ring in the corner around the bird sitting in it) cushioned from the anti bird spikes. This is a work of beautiful defiance. Using the very thing installed to make just a moment’s rest impossible as structural supports for an immovably stable nursery. The symbolism achieved by these pigeons is better than some writers can hope for and I love it! From the nest on the bird repellent spikes to the fact that those spikes are along the stained glass windows of a church, a place associated with sanctuary and compassion. The fact that the nest is made of stolen poppies for remembrance day hits the hardest though. Of the 54 animals to be awarded the Dickin Medal for acts of gallantry during WW2, 32 of them were pigeons. These were messengers who flew through battlefields and across borders, many of whom were killed or severely injured by enemy forces including gunfire and trained falcons. Many of their achievements saved the lives of hundreds of soldiers, and yet now their descendants are faces with anti-bird spikes, shooting and poisoning in an attempt to rid the cities from the rats with wings. I love this picture because it feels like they’re taking back just a little bit of that credit owed to them.  Reblogging for this beautiful addition. [ID: three colour photographs. The first shows a pigeon holding a fake poppy in its teeth, standing on a marble surface. The second shows a nest made of hundreds of fake poppies, cushioning a sitting pigeon from the anti-bird spikes below. The final photo is a zoomed-out picture of the nest, showing many stained glass windows surrounding it.]

The documentary, titled “With Drawn Arms,” will focus on Smith’s strength and John Carlos’ courage to join in, despite the consequences. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, as the protests of the national anthem resurface in sports, both Legend and Williams believe Smith’s story deserves to be told. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We are excited to collaborate with true artists in Glenn Kaino and Afshin Shahidi to bring this powerful story to the world in a fresh and compelling way,” Legend said. “In this current climate we are once again being charged to stand up to bigotry, fear, and hate. We are inspired by this story and honored to be a creative partner on this film.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Tommie Smith is more than an iconic poster or risky act of defiance that inspires people the world over,” Williams said. “He is a living man, whose incredible journey is worthy of examination. I couldn’t be more excited to join forces with this team of film makers, to share his reality and challenge our notions of heroism in the process.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Deadline, the film is expected to be released October of next year, for the 50th anniversary of the raised fist by the now-73-year-old Smith.

Defiance: #BREAKING: Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio found guilty of criminal contempt. STORY: http://bit.ly/2uR9EKf abe 15 ARIZONA HE GUILTY PHOENIX - Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was convicted of a criminal charge Monday for refusing to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants, marking a final rebuke for a politician who once drew strong popularity from such crackdowns but was ultimately booted from office as voters became frustrated over his headline-grabbing tactics and deepening legal troubles. The verdict from U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton represents a victory for critics who voiced anger over Arpaio's unusual efforts to get tough on crime, including jailing inmates in tents during triple-digit heat, forcing them to wear pink underwear and making hundreds of arrests in crackdowns that divided immigrant families. When reached for comment by ABC15 on Monday morning, Arpaio said his "main reaction was disappointment." Arpaio will now appeal Judge Bolton's verdict in order to get a trial by jury, according to a statement from his attorneys. "Her verdict is contrary to what every single witness testified in the case," the statement read. "Arpaio believes that a jury would have found in his favor, and that it will." Arpaio, who spent 24 years as the sheriff of metro Phoenix, skirted two earlier criminal investigations of his office. But he wasn't able to avoid legal problems when he prolonged his signature immigration patrols for nearly a year and a half after a different judge ordered him to stop. That judge later ruled they racially profiled Latinos. The lawman who made defiance a hallmark of his tenure was found guilty of misdemeanor contempt-of-court for ignoring the 2011 court order to stop the patrols. The 85-year-old faces up to six years in jail, though attorneys who have followed the case doubt that someone his age would be incarcerated. [Read more in comments.]

Defiance: HOLD ON TO YOUR SALAH BECAUSE IF YOU LOSE THAT YOU LOSE EVERYTHING GARDENOFTHEPIOUS A common habit among many Muslims today is to abandon salah, especially the dawn and evening prayers. This poisonous habit of abandoning prayers, whether due to laziness or deliberate negligence, will cause many people to enter the hellfire on the Day of Judgement. - When a person starts neglecting the prayers, other negative effects follow, such as failing to perform good deeds and regularly falling into sinful acts. Such people deny the final day and continue with their defiance until death overtakes them, but by then it will be too late to repent and to be forgiven for their disobedience. - To neglect salah, is to be de-linked from Allah and deprived of His mercy, for it is a remedy for all the diseases of the heart and for what corrupts the soul. How can we hope to patiently fight against injustice and oppression, if we can barely stand up for any of our five prayers. It is no wonder then that the Ummah today lags behind in almost all areas of life, and is constantly humiliated. - “...and establish regular prayer, for prayer restrains from shameful and unjust deeds, and remembrance of Allah is the greatest thing in life without a doubt. And Allah knows the deeds you do.” (Quran, 29:45) - May Allah make the five daily prayers the coolness of our eyes and a source of salvation in the Hereafter, Ameen. - @gardenofthepious

Anthony.Sally Ride was a physicist and an astronaut.  Not only was she the first woman in space, but she was the youngest person to ever travel to space at the time, and is still the youngest American ever to go to space.  After her NASA career she was a professor of physics and the director of the California Space Institute.  She co-founded a company in 2001 that creates entertaining science programs and publications for upper elementary and middle school students, with a particular focus on girls.  She wrote 7 books about space that encouraged children to study science.  She was also the first known LGBT astronaut.Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani woman who has fought tirelessly for female education.  She’s also the youngest ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.  Due to her efforts to secure education for women, an Islamic terrorist group attempted to kill her on her way to school.  The Taliban has also stated they want her dead.  Yet, she’s continued her fight for the education of women and female children in Pakistan.  She’s spoke to the UN and during a meeting with President Obama, she confronted him about his use of drone strikes in Pakistan.  She’s done all this and she’s only 17.Rosa Parks was an African American Civil Rights activist.  She refused to obey orders to give up her seat on a bus, resisting segregation laws.  Her defiance and the defiance of others led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which were important events in the Civil Rights Movement.  She worked for civil rights and educational organizations for the rest of her life.  She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Congressional Gold Medal and was the first woman and second non-US government official to lie in honor in the Capital Rotunda.These women did a lot, what exactly have you done?  What are your accomplishments?You go ahead and continue to sit in your mom’s basement, wearing your Meninist t-shirt, and trolling people on the internet.  I’ll be over here raising the next generation of women who are going to get shit done and help make this world a better place.

Defiance: When I was 16, I had a fake I.D. and decided to go to a gay bar by myself because some friends bailed on me. While there, an older gentleman bought me a drink. He wasn't a creeper, and he definitely wasn't unattractive. I accepted the drink and began talking to him. No big deal. As the hour progressed, I felt myself feeling strange. I mentioned that I felt like I had a headache, and this guy helped guide me out of the bar. As we were walking down the street, the thought of, "Oh god, he's drugged me, I'm going to die' came to my head. I tried to get away, but I was so drugged up that I could barely walk, let alone speak. It also didn't help that I had really large 'goth' platform shoes because I was going through a phase. Anyway, this guy brought me to his suv and began undressing me. As a final act of defiance, I hit him over the head with my platform shoe. He then punched me, and I remember thinking, 'Why don't they ever give workshops to gay guys about being victims of rape too?' While I was as careful as possible, I never saw the guy slip something in the drink. I even watched the bar tender make the drink. Anyway, I lied there completely paralyzed while this pervert was lubing up. I locked eyes with his for a moment, and that's when it happened. A very large and angry drag queen opened the door of the vehicle and beat the shit out of my attempted rapist. She and her other drag friends helped dress and care for me while the police arrived. I was saved by a group of guardian drag queens. They were basically the modern day 'angels from heaven.' Über Humor I'm afraid I just blue myself. Drag Queens, yeah!http://meme-rage.tumblr.com
