A school in Brazil had all its students protesting after a transgender girl got reprimanded after changing into a female uniform. All the students, including the boys, wore a skirt to school on September 1st in a way to show support to the girl, who still can’t wear her female uniform but the school says that they’re “reviewing the code of conduct.”

In some older versions of Persephone’s story, she was a young woman, not a young girl, and instead of accidentally wandering away, she had gone deliberately adventuring, when she fell, or was lured, or was kidnapped into Hell. Here Persephone’s adventurous spirit leads her into difficulty, instead of her being a passive victim of the wickedness of others. Her relationship with her mother gives her the courage to explore her world, and when events take a bad turn, their relationship gives her the strength to survive.

In a still older version, Persephone heard the despairing cries of the dead and chose freely to go into the Underworld to comfort them. Hades does not appear at all, in this version. Here Persephone’s descent to hell illustrates inclusiveness for every being, whether in the Underworld or in our present one, and shows that mercy is integral to her nature.

In the most ancient layer of myth, Persephone’s name means “She Who Destroys The Light.” She was the powerful Goddess of the Underworld long before anyone knew of Hades. Like the Indian Kali, the Irish Morrigan, and the Sumerian Ereshkegal, she was the Goddess of Death.

the thing about misha’s portrayal of leviathan that impresses—and creeps me out—most is the fact that if you look at his eyes in these shots, it doesn’t look like cas, and it doesn’t even look like misha.

there’s something dead about his eyes here that just freaks the shit out of me. it just looks like there’s something behind his eyes, rather than in them. he’s empty and hollowed and there’s something else inside him. 

the fact that misha can do that with just his eyes is incredible to me.

thank you for also noticing. its the whole reason why i loved levi-cas. his eyes look darker somehow and at first.i thought they did something digitally but i’m convinced it was all misha

Plus the fact that he was severely ill whilst filming that scene makes me love his acting a whole lot more

and its really hot 

I JUST LOVE MISHA’S ACTING OKAY

Friendly reminder that the confusion and fear in Dean is actually Jensen’s real reaction because this is not how they rehearsed this scene and Misha scared the crap out of him with it

^

the glassy eyes are the result of him having a fever. Misha is doing such a good job acting like a manic monster that it makes the eyes look terrifying because our subconscious knows that someone with eyes like that should be laying in bed too sick to function
