The beginnings of the American Revolution, simplified

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    All right, fine, your stupid embargo worked. We won’t levy any more taxes-

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    Huzzah! Time to get drunk!

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    Except on tea.

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    What?

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    Get over it, it’s just tea. Seriously, where do you get this idea that you’re special and should never have to pay taxes? We hope that idea doesn’t go on to infect your political discourse centuries from now.

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    We’re not buying your stupid tea.

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    Are you being serious right now? What are you going to do, just stop drinking tea?

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    Yes. We’ll drink coffee.

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    Do you even know what that is?

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    No, but we’ve heard it’s good and we’re feeling surly.

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    Fine, whatever, we don’t even care what you do anymore.

  • BRITISH EAST INDIA COMPANY:

    Actually, we are pretty much bankrupt, so you need to make them drink the tea.

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    Oh, for—just drink the tea.

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    No.

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    Do it.

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    NO.

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    Drink it.

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    Fuck you.

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    Drink it or we’ll punch you in the face.

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    *Boston Tea Party*

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    What the hell?

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    We heard it was Indians.

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    That’s interesting, because we heard it was a bunch of colonists wearing paint and dressed in costumes that were remarkably similar to what a crowd of drunks who wanted to look like Indians would assemble if the only supplies they had were found in an alley behind a bar.

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    You get all types in Boston.

  • BRITISH EMPIRE:

    …*Coercive Acts*

  • AMERICAN COLONIES:

    Oh, it is ON.

☆ mechanical heart: SIT THE FUCK DOWN!!! WOMEN DID AND HAVE FOUGHT IN WARS

deersu:

SO!

somebody stated that they really hate tf2 genderbends! and that’s ok they can tumblr savior that shit! So why are we still talking about this? Well this person and i quote

Yeah true, but well, Tf2 is in between 60’s and 70’s so women were not allowed to be in war, or they…

NO.  NOT LOGIC.  IM IGNORING THE MINI SHORTS ETC. PART BECAUSE “so women were not allowed to be in a war”  IS THE MOST FUCKING STUPID THING EVER!  YOU KNOW WHY?  BECAUSE WOMEN HAD AND HAVE ALWAYS FOUGHT IN WARS AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO.  ALSO CONSIDERING THAT THE “WAR” BETWEEN BLU AND RED IS TECHNICALLY JUST A BUNCH OF HIRED MERCS (OH BY THE WAY WOMEN MERCENARIES DID IN FACT EXIST BACK IN THE DAY!!!!!) AND DOESN’T EVEN CONSTITUTE AS A “REAL” WAR IS REALLY SAYING HOW MUCH THOUGHT THIS PERSON PUT INTO THEIR ARGUMENT!

but enough about that, what im most concerned with here is there are people who believe women were not allowed in wars.  this is seriously the most ignorant thing i have ever read.  JUST LOOK AT THESE GREAT LADIES!  SORRY THEY’RE MOSTLY WWII, BUT IF THERE WERE WOMEN FIGHTING DURING WWII (AND IN ACTUAL MILITARIES TOO!) THEN IT SHOULD BE A NOBRAINER TO FIGURE OUT THAT WOMEN FOUGHT IN LATER TIMES TOO!  ESPECIALLY SINCE IN THE VIETNAM WAR, VIETNAMESE WOMEN PROBABLY HAD TO FIGHT OFF SOLDIERS IN ORDER TO PROTECT THEIR CHILDREN OR VILLAGES OR BELIEFS!!!!

BUT ANYWAYS MOVING ON:

MILICINA AND COMMUNIST YOUTH MARINA GINESTÁ

RUSSIAN SNIPER LYUDMILA PAVLICHENKO WAS ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL FEMALE SNIPERS EVER.  309 GERMANS KILLED BY THE END OF WWII

RUSSIAN WOMEN GUERRILLAS IN WWII!

YOUNG POLISH RESISTANCE WOMEN DURING THE UPRISING

FILLIPINO WOMEN TRAINING IN A LOCAL WOMEN’S AUXILIRY SERVICE TO LATER FORM THE FIRST “WOMEN GUERRILLA” IN 1941

ACK-ACK GIRLS

WOMEN AUXILIARY AIRFORCE

A GIRL ON THE FRENCH RESISTANCE DOING PATROL WHILE ALSO LOOKING OUT FOR GERMAN SNIPERS!  WOW AND WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT IS SHE WEARING SOME SHORTS???

DO I NEED TO GIVE MORE EXAMPLES?  IM REALLY MAD AND SURPRISED THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO THINK WOMEN CAN’T FIGHT IN WARS!  THIS ISN’T EVEN ABOUT TF2 ANYMORE GOMEN

BUT REALLY

WOMEN HAVE ALWAYS FOUGHT IN WARS THEY DON’T NEED PERMISSION THEY’LL FUCKING GET IN THAT SHIT

WOW LOOK AT ALL THESE FIGHTING LADIES

Really, why do I let myself be talked into these things?

Me: … my room is spawning calculators. I swear I have never seen this calculator before but it’s on my floor under my bed on my side of the room.
Winter: *blink* Miiiiiind flip…
Me: It’s a conspiracy! I kept running into books and signs earlier today at Barnes and Nobles suggesting I brush up on my math, try a few math brain teasers, study some calculus.
Winter: Whoa. The Universe speaks…
Icka: And Pandora starts playing ‘Science Fiction Double Feature’ from Rocky HOrror….
Icka: Watch out, they’re transexual calculators from OUTER SPACE!
Winter: lol
Me: I believe it!
Me: It’s all black and bright yellow.
Icka: .„, is it wearing a gold speedo?
Winter: lolol
Me: *snickers* No, but I think I have some shiny gold fabric in the closet some where so I could maybe make it one…
Winter: I want pictures
Me: Of the speedo-wearing calculator?
Icka: Yes,
Winter: Well, yeah
Winter: That’s a meme waiting to happen…

And lo… I give into peer pressure and spend the afternoon stabbing myself in the finger and cursing how much I hate coming up with a pattern for speedos, especially when I have to rip out half my stitches to make it work.
