The First Lady Astronaut Trainees / Mercury 13

"The men go off and fight the wars and fly the airplanes and come back and help design and build and test them. The fact that women are not in this field is a fact of our social order."

- John Glenn of the Mercury 7, testifying before a House subcommittee in 1962

"The women underwent the identical tests that the male candidates had undergone. In the end, 68% of the women passed with ‘no medical reservations’ compared to 56% of the men. The 13 females who passed were known as the Mercury 13. They were Bernice ‘Bea’ Steadman, Janey Hart, Geraldine ‘Jerri’ Sloan Truhill, Rhea Allison Woltman, Sarah Lee Gorelick Ratley, Jan Dietrich, Marion Dietrich, Myrtle Cagle, Irene Leverton, Gene Nora Jessen, Jean Hixson, Wally Funk and Geraldyn ‘Jerrie’ Cobb…

Cobb had tested in the top 2% of all tested candidates, male and female.”

The Lovelace Woman in Space Program (1960-1962)

Yet another well known youtube star jumps on the appropriation bandwagon. Idgi, her sister in law Michelle Phan already appropriated mexican culture, why the hell would she do this now??? Ugh. My culture is not a halloween costume -___-

you do fucking realize that sugar skulls ARE a costume and there is no cultural appropriation to people wearing something that was meant to be a costume to begin with…right? it’s called la catrina and it mocks lower class people trying to dress like high class europeans….its like dressing up like a tourist with a big camera and a sun hat…honey you need to calm down, im fucking mexican and la catrina IS a part of our culture that is a halloween costume. you moron.

Actually no it’s not a costume and its not related to Halloween in no type of way shut up

um well im mexican and you’re wrong.  and its associated with day of the dead which is on october 31st, you dumb twat, go fuck yourself and dont tell me what i should find offensive when its fucking NOT
“José Guadalupe Posada created a famous print of a figure he called La Calavera Catrina (“The Elegant Skull”) as a parody of a Mexican upper-class female. Posada’s striking image of a costumed female with a skeleton face has become associated with the Day of the Dead”
OH LOOK IT ORIGINATED AS A COSTUMED FEMALE WITH A PAINTED FACE
“A common symbol of the holiday (day of the dead) is the skull (in Spanish calavera), which celebrants represent in masks, called calacas (colloquial term for skeleton)”
OH LOOK, MASKS…..OH MY LOOK AT HOW ITS WORN AS A FUCKING COSTUME EVEN WHEN CELEBRATING THE HOLIDAY, OH MAN OH MAN DONT WEAR MY CULTURE AS A COSTUME, WHEN THAT PART OF THE CULTURE IS IN FACT, A FUCKING COSTUME YOU GOD DAMN PIECE OF SHIT
you are an ignorant fuck
