friendly reminder that spirit animals are a sacred concept in a variety of religions worldwide (many of them being aboriginal religions that are at risk of destruction by european colonialism) and are not a way to joke about your admiration for something

swap in ‘x is my patronus’ instead, to get the effect of ‘x totally represents my inner nature’ without being a shitdick about native people

bemusedlybespectacled:

if you ever think mythology is boring or serious business or whatever shit

just remember that cerberus, the hell-hound and guard dog of the underworld, comes from the root indo-european word ḱerberos, which evolved into the greek word kerberos, which got changed to cerberus when it went from greek to latin

ḱerberos means “spotted”

that’s right

hades, lord of the dead, literally fucking named his pet dog spot

I am alive. I am here. I am trying. That is enough.

One day they came and took the communists and I said nothing because I was not a communist. Then one day they came and took people of the Jewish faith away and I said nothing because I had no faith left. One day they came and took the unionists and I said nothing because I was not a unionist. One day they burned the catholic churches and I said nothing because I was born a protestant. Then one day they came and they took me because I was as guilty as they were for not speaking out and saying that all men have a right to freedom.
