for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.
how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever

But, remember, women never did anything in history.
I’m reblogging this again. Always reblogging. Always
Q:How does it hurt PoC to have white people take part in their culture? Wouldn't it make people more accepting if we weren't telling them they're not allowed to even wear some clothes or eat a food? "Cultural appropriation" claims tell us we're not allowed to educate ourselves in other cultures.... Thus creating ignorance......
Uh, way to miss the point entirely.
As we (and others) have stated time and time again, there’s no problem with a white person eating a food from another culture or wearing a traditional garb when it’s in an appropriate situation.
What’s not okay is taking a traditional garb and during it into a costume. What’s not okay is bastardizing a language or aspects of a culture and altering it so it’s more consumable to white people. That is what hurts POC.
""Cultural appropriation" claims tell us we’re not allowed to educate ourselves in other cultures"
That’s literally not what this means at all.
If you’re too dense to understand this very basic concept then you are way beyond our help.
Don’t you love it how they always try to make it into a question of ownership?
Like, “Why can’t I HAVE you?”
A guy just walked into this lecture in shorts, a winter coat and a beanie. If that doesn’t sum up the Australian experience of spring, I don’t know what does.
a dude walked past my bus stop wearing a hoodie and beanie and a pair of floral boardshorts and doc martens i love this season
i saw a woman on the train this morning who was wearing very short shorts, a singlet and thongs but she had a thick winter coat over the top. she ended up pushing her sleeves up as well.
