In a groundbreaking move, the state takes a stand against defendants being able to use a victim’s sexual orientation or gender identity as justification for murder.
"I get very bored and restless if I feel that there isn’t anything really in the character for me to get my teeth into. I lose interest very quickly. That’s why I don’t like taking roles that oversimplify or over-objectify or oversexualise women, because I find it so unbelievably boring just to stand there and look good." [x]

A Selk’nam couple with their baby, on a ship en route to be exhibited in Europe as “wildmen”. The Selk’nam people are an indigenous tribe in the Patagonian region of Southern Argentina and Chile. Both appear to have slight damage on their ankles from cruel, probably iron, restraints.

Abducted by aliens.
I really want to know who these people are/what happened to them

AN ENTIRE LANGUAGE. AN ENTIRE CUISINE. AN ENTIRE WAY OF LIFE. WIPED AWAY.
