I absolutely love this.
ACTUALLY. This myth gets more interesting. These original “double humans” were comprised of two parts—either both parts male, one part male and one female, or both female. This myth is used to explain why some people are homosexual and why some are straight. Yay Classics. I’M LEARNING SO MUCH IN COLLEGE GUYS
This gets better each time it scrolls through my dash.
Symposium is only my favorite bit of Plato ever :3
Women from Iran’s female police force, established in 2003. These ladies undergo a three year training program requiring intensive military courses including judo, fencing, firearm training, and laying mines. They serve alongside their male counterparts, work regular beats, and they do it all in hijab. Respect.
