Roller Derby: Ranking with Baseball as the Nation’s Favorite Pastime

"One of the most dynamic personalities in big time sports, Leo A. Seltzer is perhaps the only man living who can claim the distinction of building a sport from a mere ‘brainchild’ to the world’s most heavily attended indoor sport in only seven short years! Originated in the Chicago Coliseum in 1935, the Roller Derby is now appearing in over fifty major cities throughout the United States twice yearly, as well as in Canada and Mexico.

"More than 400,000 boy and girl skaters from all parts of the world have tried to gain a place on the Roller Derby since its inauguration. So rigid are the requirements that of that great number only a little over one hundred teams have been able to qualify. They form the six Roller Derby teams now in operation—more teams will be added when new skaters, many of whom are being developed in the Roller Derby’s own training schools, are fully developed."

Leo Seltzer was chairman of the National Committee which governed all rules, skates, maps, plans, tracks, and special signal lights. Franchise holders controlled teams locally. In 1942, Minneapolis Roller Derby franchise holders were Harry Hirsch and Tony Stecher.

Black and white photos, circa 1941, from the recently digitized Marvin Juell negative collection (over 700 images). Juell worked for the Minneapolis Public Library. Red images and text from an event program dated July 31, 1942, which also included official Roller Derby rules and regulations and full line-up for Minneapolis and St. Paul.

This is why 4chan raided Tumblr, nobody likes Tumblr feminists, NO ONE.

i can’t believe people eat this shit up like it’s real
people can just type up the wildest fake “SJW” text they can think of and it just travels infinitely around communities desperate enough to get their anti-SJW rocks off that they’ll jump at the chance to attack this fake ass manufactured SJW strawman garbage
you’re thinking “damn i’m the strongest tiger in the zoo, let this be a lesson that i will catch and kill every rabbit that dares to encroach upon my domain” meanwhile everyone else is laughing watching you rip apart a stuffed animal because you can’t tell the difference

This isn’t feminist..this is insane. Big difference.

i compiled some pics of dreamworks female characters who were introduced in the same years as disney female characters- rapunzel, anna, and honey lemon

its up to you to decide which company is more progressive when designing female characters who appear distinct from the company’s last female protagonist, even tho its sorta extremely obvious  

It’s even more obvious when you include more of Dreamworks’ characters.

In Frozen, Anna and Elsa look extremely similar, despite having different colored hair. In HTTYD 2, there’s no way you would confuse Astrid for Ruffnut, despite the fact that they have the same hair and eyes. Valka looks very different from all of them, and as you could see in the above photoset, Eep from The Croods and Roxanne from Megamind look different from all three of the aforementioned viking ladies.

What’s really interesting is when you throw Heather into the mix. Heather was in two episodes of “Riders of Berk,” and it was something of a plot point that, hair color aside, she was supposed to look kind of similar to Astrid (because Astrid had to disguise herself as Heather in the second episode because of plot reasons; she had to be able to pass as Heather, at least temporarily). Despite this, Astrid and Heather still have marked differences, and this is most noticeable when Astrid is in her Heather get-up.

For better comparisons, here is Heather:

And here is Astrid disguised as Heather:

Her eyes, her nose, her mouth, even her cheekbones—there are differences. Astrid was supposed to be able to convincingly pass as Heather, meaning that they intentionally created Heather to at least resemble Astrid in some ways so that the characters wouldn’t think this was a completely stupid idea (in other words, they couldn’t have Heather looking like, say, a female Snotlout, because the characters would never think Astrid could pass as someone like that), and yet there are still marked differences so that even when Astrid is wearing a wig and Heather’s clothes, you (as the viewer) can still tell which is which. The best part of this? Riders of Berk is a Cartoon Network show, meaning Dreamworks did not have the budget to spend on it that they would a feature-length movie. Heather herself only appeared in two episodes. Yet she still had a unique design, and they still put in the effort to make her distinguishable from Astrid, despite the fact that the plot itself called for them to have resemblance. Yet Disney has three feature-length movies, one of which you know they lauded as being the creme de la creme of animation, and they still can’t make their ladies look different.

For fucking shame, Disney. For shame.

Now, I love both studios, but Disney needs to step up their game in this particular department

Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.

I’ve gotten more angry asks about this post than I have actual reblogs.
