“When you’re reminded so much of who you are by people - not a fame thing, but with my size - you either curl up in a corner or you wear it proudly, like armor.”
- Peter Dinklage
LOOK AT YOUR MAN
NOW BACK TO YOUR MAN
NOW BACK TO ME
SADLY, HE ISN’T ME
I’M ON A HORSE
DAMN Dinklage don’t hurt em
I still have a massive crush on this man.
I remain unconvinced that he actually owns any shirts. I’ve yet to see a photo of him wearing a shirt that isn’t a costume he’s contractually obligated to wear for a show.
This is not a complaint.
Maybe it’s Bathory

To conquer fear, you must become fear… you must bask in the fear of other men… and men fear most what they cannot see
Look at these two fierce ladies giggling together. I love this. I don’t care how powerful you are, you’re still a human being. I hope they were telling dirty jokes.
“I hear they call him Mitt because he’s always the catcher”
Not all that long ago the law of the land was segregation. All professional sports, concerts, buses, trains, bathrooms, pools, beaches, water fountains, restaurants and schools all had restriction on skin color. Then in New Orleans on November 14, 1960 the courts ordered the first day of integrated schools and all hell broke loose.
Her father was fired from his job because he allowed his daughter to go to an all white school. Her grandparents, sharecroppers in Mississippi were kicked off the land they worked and lived on.
Ruby Bridges was 6 years old.
Every morning, as Bridges walked to school, one woman would threaten to poison her. Because of this, the U.S. Marshals dispatched by President Eisenhower, who were overseeing her safety, only allowed Ruby to eat food that she brought from home. Another woman at the school put a black baby doll in a wooden coffin and protested with it outside the school, a sight that Ruby said “scared me more than the nasty things people screamed at us.” At her mother’s suggestion, Bridges began to pray on the way to school, which she found provided protection from the comments yelled at her on the daily walks.
Former United States Deputy Marshal Charles Burks later recalled, “She showed a lot of courage. She never cried. She didn’t whimper. She just marched along like a little soldier, and we’re all very proud of her
REAL people, both Black and White, stood up and made a difference. When all the teachers in the school refused to teach Ruby, Barbara Henry said she would, simply because it was right. A white neighbor provided her father with a new job. Some white families did send their children to school despite the protests.
It has taken America awhile to really be the land of the free…but it has always been the home of the brave. Just look at 6-year-old Ruby Bridges.
