From Edward Butler, author of the Henadology blog. It also has quite a bit on Seshat.
An internet “award” for misinformation about jackal deities.
I don’t think you’re gonna get any funds for this but good luck
this is the wrong website, I’m sorry OP I know you’re probably gonna get hate mail for this.
Sad but true.
I’m a bit more optimistic. I hope it gets the funding, this is definitely something that needs research.
What these comments tell me is that Tumblr is full of people who think that these facts are second rate because they are about men. Let that sink in.
Hell don’t send hate to the OP, send it to me because if you’re the type of person that totally disregards these statements then I highly doubt you have a very good argument outside of OH WELL PEOPLE THAT REPRESENT ME HAVE IT WORSE.
It is very worth mentioning that the person who started this project is a woman and, before this film, created a film called “Miss Representation” about how media contributes to the under-representation of women.
i’m just glad someone is willing to talk about this being an issue at all.
because honestly, i can tell you i had a hell of a fucking time growing up under the constant pressure and strain living up to the image of what a man should be, and really it was a pressure put upon me by other men almost exclusively.
if people of your own gender telling you that you’re wrong and that they’re willing and ready to invalidate you because of that isn’t considered fucked up, then i don’t know what is.
It saddens and annoys me that most of Tumblr is going to be so quick to shrug this off because of its idiotic obsession with demonizing men
so all the people saying that “tumblr won’t support this because it supports men” do realize they have a tumblrs too and that tumblr isn’t a monolithic group
I’m sure plenty men, women and trans* folks will support this
enough with this “tumblr hates men” bullshit we should support the film because it’s an important topic
the funny thing is, all the people who think folks won’t support this don’t realize that these are the issues effective feminism seeks to confront in regards to patriarchy
As the mother of a little boy, these are the things I worry about as he grows older.
Boys are forced into a total bullshit role. It makes problems for everyone. In the US, it’s reenforced by sports culture which has pretty much assumed the status of a religion. “Sports keep young men out of trouble and give them a positive thing to do.” Yep, just look at the news- high school, college, professional athletes- they certainly set an example. It’s the one religion in America that can’t be questioned.
This is why, whenever my son’s grandfather goes on about how he’ll never play sports, I usually retort, “that’s right. He can be a man’s man without knowing how to throw a ball.”
THAT IS HERESY!
The other half of this is that American corporate culture states that being a passive watcher of team sports automatically means that someone will be a “team player” and put the interests of the company first. This is certainly not borne out by observation.
… and atheists say that religion isn’t rational. :p
FWIW, I had really good results with gel food. It’s a pain in that you have to make it- but the GF really like it, and it’s way healthier many times than some of the flakes and crisps that you can buy.
Essentially, you’d take a bunch of peas and green…
You could get good GF’s from an individual breeder. But the “factory-raised’ ones from Asia you’ll see in stores are doomed.
You could see if there’s a general aquarium club near you, or better yet, a specialist GF society. Sometimes you can get great fish at a show auction, and the fish these people cull out would be miles ahead of anything you could get at a store.
Goldfish aren’t the only ones to suffer from this. Guppies used to be an ‘easy’ fish, but now most of them are nothing but trouble.
You can get the wild form, usually under the name of Endler’s livebearer.
Everyone who wants a guide to Sekhmet?
What sort of items would you like me to discuss? You can reblog this with things you want to know or you can send me an ask.
Other aspects besides the “avenging Eye of Ra” and “healer”. Sekhmet & Wadjet. Multiple Sekhmets, too!
Also, in the “Destroying Humanity” story, it might be worth thinking about attacks by Hwt-Hrw and Sekhmet being two separate attacks, of differing quality.

Q:Hi one of your followers here bitteroreo, and ever since I was a child I always loved and was interested in kemet. My family is baptist christian and I just never felt anything for that religion however I always was drawn to paganism. My question is where do I start from learning from paganism, about wiccanism, to studying egyptian Gods and how do I got about finding which God is right for me. I'm so interest but feel a bit overwhelmed any advice?
Let’s see… I was never that interested in the “generic pagan/Wiccan” thing, even though I have friends who are. The best source for starting out with that (and worth reading anyway) are Jenett’s Seeking pages- clear and well-written.
In my case, I went with only Egyptian/Kemetic, because I didn’t see the point of adding another layer to further complicate things. ;)
One of the best places to learn about the gods and goddesses is henadology. My friend Satsekhem has a list of guides and 101’s by her, Devo and others here. I’m starting a project called “Kemetic Roundtable” later this week, so look for an announcement for that. There are also a couple facebook groups and forums you might want to check, and my blog: Kemetic Reconnaissance. :)
If you’ve got any budget to buy books, I’d suggest “Temple of the Cosmos” by Jeremy Naydler, and “Eternal Egypt” by Richard Reidy.
Other than that, if you’ve got any specific questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
Senebty! (be healthy)
