You should love everyone, regardless of their sexuality, race, socioeconomic class, faith, ability, gender identity, biological sex…
Essentially, if you don’t love everyone then you are part of the problem. Feminists who hate men are part of the problem. Whites who hate blacks are part of the problem. Cis who hate trans are part of the problem. LGBT+ and LGBT+ allies who hate straights are part of the problem.
I have nothing wrong with disliking individual people. Dislike whoever you want, naturally. But even if you dislike someone, you must still love them for no greater of a reason than that they are a part of the human race. They suffer alongside you and they do their best to stay alive and happy in a world that tries everything in its power to beat them down. We are all part of humanity, so instead of lashing out against whoever you think is the problem, show them compassion and love even when they don’t show you any. Everyone on Tumblr is addicted to the idea that the LGBT+ rights movement is the modern analogue to the civil rights movement. And you know what, I’m all for that.
But when you take a movement whose success was founded on nonviolent protests and a rhetoric of love and acceptance and compare it to a system of anger and suggested violence, you are doing harm, not good. The words “we must not replace a system of X superiority with a system of Y superiority” come to mind.
Luckily, I think this is a Tumblr-specific opinion. Everyone in the real world respects and loves each other as best they can, and the better folk among us try to shut out those who cause us harm.
tl;dr version, love everyone. No exceptions.
In the nineteenth century, a morbid and curious custom has spread to various parts of the world: the photos were ”Post Mortem”.
”Post Mortem” comes from Latin, meaning after death.
The photos ”Post Mortem” apparently originated in England, when Queen Victoria asked to photograph the corpse of an acquaintance or a relative, so she can keep as a souvenir.
soon after, this idea spread around the world, keeping a morbid reminder of loved ones that have passed on.
Even today, as strange as it may seem, some places still have this custom.
The girl who is standing in the photo is the one who is dead.
This is a classic example of photographic art.
Notice the hands
for people wondering how the corpse is standing up, there is a posing stand supporting the body it’s very hard to see but the stand is supporting the neck, arms and back.
the girl in this picture has her eyes open, but in some cases the photographer will paint pupils on the eye lids to make it seem like they are wide awake
Have some historical, non-fiction creepypasta.
I’ve studied about these pictures not too long ago.
One of the reasons they were so popular was that, while protography started to become popular at that time, it was still expensive, and sometimes the families couldn’t pay for take pictures of their children or other relatives often. So, they did it when said people died so, this way, they would have at least one memento of them.
Sometimes, the photos themselves were painted, to make the corpses look a little more “alive”. A lot of manipulation techniques were used.
