Aliette de Bodard » Blog Archive » Common misconceptions about the Aztecs

It occurred to me I did this kind of post for Ancient China, but never got around to it for the Aztecs…

-The jungle. Ok, if I had a cookie every time the romantic and torrid jungle atmosphere was mentioned in connection with the Aztecs, my kitchen would be overflowing. The Aztecs were a people of Central Mexico, with NO jungles whatsoever in a radius of several dozen kilometers. Their country was wet marshes; and after the wet marshes, high mountains with dry and cold weather. To get the jungle, you had to go down to the south–a week’s march or more, beyond the boundaries of the empire for most of its existence–, and enter the bits that are now the South of Mexico and Guatemala. Those are Maya lands (see below for Aztecs, Mayas and Incas). There is a lot of jungle-based imagery in Aztec mythology (jaguars and quetzals, for instace), precisely because those jungles were far-off lands the Aztecs didn’t see every day and thus acquired an aura of magic and preciousness, a bit like the Orient in the 19th Century became this glamorous place where everything was larger than life.
And Apocalypto is a terrible movie about Mesoamerican people, incidentally (it depicts life among the Maya, but does a terrible job of it).

-Aztecs, Mayas, Incas, it’s all the same, isn’t it? Er, yeah, sure. Just as the Finns, the Spanish and the Ancient Greek are secretly all one people. The Aztecs, as said above, occupied the centre of Mexico from the 14th to the 16th Century; the Mayas held the South of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, etc., for a longer time than this (the last Maya city fell in the 17th or 18th Century, and the Mayas had been around for a while, even though their culture had changed a lot by then). The Incas were in Peru, which is more than three thousand kilometers from any of the aforementioned countries.

Basically white people need to get the fuck away from us until they can get their shit together. That’s the point. That’s why HBCU’s are important.

This is fucked up on both sides including the white haters.

SHUT THE FUCK UP WHITE RAILERS!!!!!!! It’s not fucked up on both sides because making a mockery of the lynchings that happened to our not so distant relatives and turning PoC identities into painful stereotypes is not the fuck equal to us telling you to get the fuck away from us. We are often AFRAID to fuck with y’all. And don’t even dare say it’s not all white people because not all revolvers have six bullets in them, but I’m not about to pull the trigger. We have to protect ourselves because y’all are generally dangerous both physically and spiritually. I don’t care about your feelings.

Racism^

White people are delusional. There’s no other explanation.

Stop using Africa to induce consumerist guilt.

Stop using Africa to induce philanthropy to sell products. 

Stop using Africa as an emotional crutch for your fucked up consumerist culture. 

And most importantly, stop talking about Africa like it’s one big country.

Anyone who claims it’s not ‘historically accurate’ to put POC in fantasy settings automatically go into the ‘racist as fuck’ category.

She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/

sex negativity cares way more about women’s sexuality/agency of their own bodies than sex positivity ever will

but somehow people think all we do is shame women for having sex, which is the exact opposite of true

Bring consent out of the bedroom. I think part of the reason we have trouble drawing the line “it’s not okay to force someone into sexual activity” is that in many ways, forcing people to do things is part of our culture in general. Cut that shit out of your life. If someone doesn’t want to go to a party, try a new food, get up and dance, make small talk at the lunchtable—that’s their right. Stop the “aww c’mon” and “just this once” and the games where you playfully force someone to play along. Accept that no means no—all the time.

NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK  FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY

This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.

IF YOU ARE SEXUALLY HARRASSED YOU REPORT THAT SHIT

Harassment is often something the guy doesn’t even notice. A study of from the American Association of University Women found that in more than half the cases, women thought men were harassing them and the men had no idea. ”

THIS IS A PROBLEM, NOT A FACT OF LIFE

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

Reblogging to my main blog becase this is very important.

Penelope Truck needs her fucking head examined if she thinks that this is ok to tell someone. 
Like shrimpwonder said, some men don’t know what sexual harassment is and don’t know that they are doing it, how about we educate everybody on sexual assault in any situation rather then telling women “oh he didn’t know, don’t report him and make him feel bad for not knowing he was sexually harassing you.”

yes, denny’s lost a $54 million law suit for being anti-black.

here’s another source. (via floricanto-desnuda)

Which after they lost, they completely changed their policies and how things were run if anyone had actually read the source.

(via rulioxjamos)

that’s actually not my point. rather, i asked mi gente to do some further research on why denny’s changed their policies, and what public relations for a huge corporate entity might mean, after being hit with the largest and broadest settlement ever paid under federal public accommodation laws—the laws put in place over 70 years ago, to end discrimination in public places.

of course denny’s changed their policies, after six uniformed members of president clinton’s secret service detail were refused service, while their white counterparts were quickly seated and given food. those six members brought a case. does anyone believe any corporation could escape that kind of publicity?

now, denny’s has public relations people to send out the kind of tweets jovenes find “cool.” that’s no accident. 

critical thinking, gente. capitalism. corporate structures. the denny’s tumblr page. advertising, in general. mm hmm.
