Julie D’Aubigny was a 17th-century bisexual French opera singer and fencing master who killed or wounded at least ten men in life-or-death duels, performed nightly shows on the biggest and most highly-respected opera stage in the world, and once took the Holy Orders just so that she could sneak into a convent and shag a nun.

(via Feminism)

bisexual opera singer who killed ten men and snuck into a convent to shag a nun.

Just so y’all know, she later set that convent on fire so she and that nun could sneak out. And she seduced one of the men she’d dueled.

Also, dueling was a serious crime during her life, but the king of France essentially overturned her conviction on the grounds that the relevant law specifically referred to men. 

how has there never been a million stories about this badass

Captain Sashay doesn’t need your mer-binary.

Finally got another one of these out! Took a long while designing this character and making them consistent through all the panels.

Which monster should come next?

I feel like queerheretic really needs to see this.

At least I’m not the only one who thought about Jupiter when they read this XD <3

Wait but I tagged Delffin not Jupiter because Delffin has a ~thing~ for merfolk

Oops. For some reason I read that as Jupiter’s url o.O the fuck?

Did somebody call my name?

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.

holy jesus

Yet again: strippers invented this shit, okay?  The act and art of performing gymnastics on a pole, no; what the vast majority of the Western world thinks of when they think of “pole dancing”, yes; what is pictured directly above, yes.

Stop associating stripping with stigma.  Stop encouraging the belief that something can’t be sexual in origin and still impressive, or that things created by sex workers can’t be art.

Pole dancing is associated with stripping because strippers were the ones who created it.  Full stop.  The end.  And none of that should decrease your admiration for it the single slightest bit.

Strippers are performing artists. So stop associating them with stigmas. They are classified as adult performing artists.
